DEF AA Grozovoi, but MM won't match to CV game?

Tin Foil Hat: ON

So definitively, I can not catch a CV match in my Manual AA DEF AA Groz to save my life, unless I'm divisioned with a CV. Even when the Que SHOWS 2 CVs waiting for Match Making.

It's extraordinarily disappointing as a player to not be matched to a game even with CV's in que.

What gives? Anyone else experience this?

 

Spoiler

*(Oh and btw, I get the exact opposite result when I switch out of that ship... even more so if I have a very weak AA ship and CVs are in the que)

Two days in Sims...

 Tuesday... CV after CV after CV. Great for me personally because I love swatting planes. :cap_rambo:

 Wednesday... CVs in every que. Get 1 CV in 11 matches. Switch to Leningrad. No CVs in que. CV in first match.. both sucked, we win. Double CVs in 2nd. We win again in one of the strangest matches I can remember.

 That you're finding no CVs at TX.. no surprise. All my US DDs are AA spec. I think I've had 1 CV match playing Fletcher.

No aa spec groz, get 3 way crossdrop nuked by taiho. 

Full aa spec groz, no carriers evarr.       <----  this is the desired effect sir, enjoy the certainty of no CVs to ruin your game.

Division with one

I do.

It's just hard for me to come to accept that this is working as intended, as it makes the full AA Groz not worth the time to play because MM will not match to CV game even if there are T10 CVs ready in the que.

There are very few carriers at high tiers. Not surprising you're not matching with them.

So yeah, div with a carrier if you want to pew at airplanes.

consider yourself lucky. A no cv match is a good match.

I'm going to do this. First 3 Ranked battles all had CV when I was in Hindenburg with Hydro. Switched to Groz and no more CV's. With Ranked I'm going to play Groz so I never get CVs.  Thanks WGing @Radar_X glad to have a CV work around for Ranked! Cheers!!!

OMG my prayers were answered! Finally!!

In Ranked just now, there were 2 CVs for T10 Ranked Que; I didn't want that so I got into my Groz to bypass as has been the routine....

Well what do you know! I got a Ranked 2x Midway match, and boy oh boy did this Full Anti-Aircraft spec Grozovoi DEF AA Manual AA create the greatest AA bubble around my allied Battleships, and completely shut down the enemy CV between my escorting our BB's and the two Worchesters. It was GLORIOUS! LOL we almost de-planed that Midway (86 plane kills across the team).

Most fun I have had in this season of Ranked - and yes we won; handily.

This type of niche gameplay is hella fun and should be encouraged!
