A teachable battle

Attached is a replay video that I wanted to share with those of you who play mid-tier BBs (I am a dd main player).  My intent is NOT to shame any player, but the battle was classic in that I've seen the same gameplay before so I want you BB drivers to see both the mistakes and the great gameplay so that we will be worthy adversaries if we meet in battle.

The map is Two Brothers.  The start is standard (flank movements). Forward to 16:20.  The Red team pushes hard down the gap and almost takes us by surprise.  We fight back and take out the red push team.  Here is my first teachable moment.  The QE BB starts pushing down the gap.  Let's think about this for a moment.  Your team sent lost multiple ships at the lower end of the gap and they spotted a British dd during the fight.  This is a ship that can single fire torps in very narrow places.  The British dd is not reported killed.  Never, EVER, is it advisable to try and drive a BB down the middle gap of Two Brothers if there are ANY possible dds on the lower end to say NOTHING about single torp launching dds.  I felt rather guilty about killing that BB.

In more positive news, watch the great play of Fox_31 in a Bayern dodging my torps towards the end of the game.  The player responded correctly by coming back to contest the Cap, he/she dodged every fish that I threw at the ship.  Study the replay to learn how to defeat torpedos.

I am a dd player.  I am your counter in the game.  I want our team to win because BOTH you and I played well, we just played a little better.

NO more sending single BBs down the gap in Two Brothers unless they are sure that there are no dds waiting for them on the lower end, OK?
