What imbecile thinks 4-6 DDs in Ranked is a good idea?

How...how can that even be allowed to happen in the game?  You mean to tell me that there is no way for the stupid MM to “realize” that if there aren’t 2 BBs, 3 CAs and 2 DDs per side...then don’t start the stupid Ranked battle?  I would rather sit in queue for a month than try driving a BB against 2 BBs and 5 DDs...who the fk wouldn’t?

Seriously, WOW, either fix it so it doesn’t happen anymore or keep circling the drain...your call.

If you don't want to face more than 2 or 3 Destroyers in game than Escape the queue when the DDs waiting for battle exceeds 5. 

Or you could take a radar cruiser into a Destroyer heavy Rank queue and get some revenge.

I dont think there is nothing fix honestly. Its working as is, even though you love to sit and stare at a screen for a month. Others are well not so forgiving. Its one match just let it go.

Yes, I caused pure L with just one skimikaze. 5 you are doomed. 

The only thing a GK left alone should see is torpedoes. 

You needed two Radar Cruisers. They had to stick together and coordinate radar. Likely needed the radar mod as well.  

Willingness to run away would have been a plus. 

I’m not thrilled about ranked either

Different maps, different boat line ups. It’s a good thing. Shima is my best t10 but I’m glad it’s not all ocean maps, keeps me working on becoming better (uphill battle, btw)

My first season of Ranked was split. Start off with tier 6 ships then at Rank 10 you use tier 8s. It was super fun and I had a blast playing. I was still a new player so ended up stopping myself when I realized that I wasn't contributing so well. I started out playing DDs and discovered late that I was better playing cruisers and carriers.

There are lots of good ships at tier 6 that when not uptiered, can do remarkably well and are loads of fun. I am sure we will see lots of DDs but there is plenty of counterplay so I am none to worried. What will be exciting is carrier play at tier 6. Without Cleveland to keep them honest, CVs will run amok.

This season ive been the only cruiser on our team and there have been only BBs.

All I think of is the farm!!

MM isn't the issue though, ranked throws us these situations and we have to play to adapt.

Its always fun ramming a couple DD's in a match when on a BB with that many in it, if your lucky to avoid the torps. 

I tend to do the opposite of what others do when they see the DD smoke, instead of running away, turn into the smoke , can be surprised how a DD will react to it. Either get Rammed or Blown to bits by team mates for leaving smoke

First of all: you seems to have no experience of all the other ranked seasons before. DD are vital for ranked and you can get easy XP by capping.

Second: the MM is quite limited at ranked because he cann only match up what people bring to the battle. For many seasons the higher brackets were full of DD.

Third: play something else then BB. If this is your only T10 then you may try to get soemthing else for the next season.
