Okay...was the MM high on something? Was there a power surge on the servers? 10 BB's 1CA, 1 CV lineup?

I wasn't there but in a tier 3/4 match with a similar BB/cruisers balance, we had two cruisers per team, it was brutal and great fun.

The 2 RN CLs got smoke and generally good concealment though, especially Edinburgh.  They should have been able to survive quite a while compared to, say, a Baltimore or Cleveland finding themselves in their place this match.

Focus fire matters quite a bit in these things it seems, so a lemmingtrain was quite effective. The Fiji in general stayed at range and smoked up the BBs, the moment Edinburgh was spotted it was almost instantly deleted. I had my Kruppstahl moment when I bounced a Musashi salvo, then managed to torp her :cap_rambo:. In general it was fun, though it took a while due to the much higher HP pools.

FTFY, the RN cruisers are Light Cruisers.

This, they have to be very patient and wait for the right moment while lighting up targets for their team.

At least they were RN cruisers with smoke.  I'd have been hiding behind whatever island I could find if I were one of those cruisers.

 

Hell, even the Scharnhorst would feel more like a cruiser than a battleship in that battle of tier 9 titans!

Brush, I think that the problem those RN CLs would face is that this battle had carriers in it.  Without CVs in the mix, those CLs could play the role of DDs with their fairly low concealments.  But with CV planes around, those CLs would risk getting spotted and blow to kingdom come in a heartbeat.

I remember a while back playing a Tier X BB, and some Fail Division of a VIII Tirpitz brought his friends, VII Gneisenau and Scharnhorst.  These Tier X BB with nothing but Overmatching guns and tons of power, range, accuracy devoured those things.

 

25mm BB armor!  How cute! :Smile_veryhappy:  Hindenburgs and Zaos gave them a proper Tier X welcome also.

 

They likely Divisioned up to beat up on Tier VI ships like 21kt New Mexico, or super squishy Tier VI Cruisers.  Instead they dived into the hellfire of a Tier X match and got spanked.

When the Seal Clubbers get clubbed!

True, true but even with the CV's they need to think like DD's and stay in cover.

As an aside, I think that the idea of a Battle of Jutland operation might be really, really cool.  The player side could use RN, USN, or perhaps French BBs (with some screening friendly bots in cruisers), while the bot team would be German BBs and cruisers.  Tiers 4-6.

Come to think of it, why not have TWO Battle of Jutland operations,  one for the British side, and the other for the German side.  For the RN Jutland op, you could bring tier 4-6 RN, USN, or perhaps French BBs.  And for the German Jutland op, you could only bring German BBs (or perhaps the Austria-Hungarian BB if it was available when such an op was released).

Something about this week has been making people play BBs in droves. Is it because they're trying to earn money for the PEF missions?

Fortunately WG have limited destroyer numbers to a maximum of 4 per side, so this should be pretty rare...

Oh.

I can tell you at least what happened with the CVs in this battle. Because our team lemminged on purpose the red Essex wasn't able to pull off any strike on them except to try sniping our CV.  B was left uncontested for quite some time but because we were able to overpower that flank completely we had racked up more kills. 

Then we clashed in the middle to finish up.

Blobbing up a bunch of BBs has always been a powerful defense against CVs.  But you rarely see teams doing it.

Yeah well, in a surprising turn of events we had agreed to focus fire as a whole so most of the team stuck together. Because me and the Iowa spawned at C we were more or less the rearguard while the rest hammered away.

Make it from the German side and I'm in. If you look at Ops of the week Axis side gets zero love.
