Hi - I’m a BB main, and I, for one, love our new CV overlords.

It’s true. I think the CV rework and the significantly stepped up presence of CVs in the game has improved it.

I haven’t played CV in years and even then was probably 2-3 games to figure out I didn’t like it.  But having CVs in the game has improved the gameplay experience for the rest of us.

Why?  Because camping has been reduced by 70%. I see much more in terms of people out maneuvering around, like Warships, and much less people island jumping like they are some kind of land based turret.

its awesome.  So bring on the CVs!  My AA sis ready!

Yes, this.

Though, as a fellow BB main, our AA needs a nerf. Most times I just ignore planes completely.

Why am I not surprised that BB mains support anything that causes DDs to logout.

Because you know that they feel the same about DDs as DD mains feel about CVs.....

Yup, good to know DDs have a good counter now. Pretty annoying when all the cruisers just HE spams BB instead of doing their jobs.

well if cruisers could force DDs to be visible to shoot at, maybe they would shoot at DDs more often.

All that juicy spotting of all those juicy broadsides dodging gnats can't hurt either.  AMIRITE?

I still find this DD mentality of the “sky is falling” amusing, as a CV, I still see 6-8 DDs in every game. The DD population is still alive and well...

I'm not a DD main, I'm a cruiser main, so try again.  I certainly notice far fewer DDs in game than before.

Not really sure where you are coming from, but the there is more camping now than there was before. Then get a double CV game and it's worse. Of course a BB player would be happy with more spotting, good AA and limited damage from planes...Seems really difficult to play a ship like that...……………………...

Camping behind islands has been reduced, because people don't even push up that far. They barely leave the spawn in 2 CV matches. The few DDs actually playing are constantly running back to the AA bob....I don't play DDs, but I sure as heck like having them on my team able to fill thier role.

There is few things as thrilling as watching AI AA shoot at planes, except maybe watching AI secondaries shoot at ships.

Of course, there is also the skill of switching AA focus from one side to the other.

Nonsense. Watching paint dry and grass grow are much more exciting than AA mechanics. :Smile_teethhappy:

Lol I hide my stats to screw up MM monitor.  My top 10 ships are a who’s who of brawling battleship designs.

I seriously doubt that.  I'd bet there are a fairly small number of BB players that hate playing against DDs.  Most of those players are either seriously biased against stealth and/or bad at the game.  I'd guess the experienced BB players aren't too fussed about DDs.  I like the threads where BB players mention they only take torp hits every few games, and only when they made a mistake they should have avoided.

Not all cruisers have radar.  How do these "unequipped" ships "do their job" killing DDs without a DD to spot for them.

DDs are the workhorses of the game.  They make or break your team.  CVs chasing them out of the game makes it worse for everyone.

Exactly. More than 90% of the time a DD bags me is due to me not paying enough attention.

If there's any issues about DD camping the BB player needs to look at their own play habits instead pointing fingers elsewhere.

Heck, I prefer them to camp...then there's less worry about getting stealthed out in the open.

I agree with that. Forgive me I thought you were being coy with your previous statement and suggesting instituting a feature (radar) that already exists.

When I am a BB and 1 or 2 CVs decide to focus on me the whole match it drives me absolutely nuts.  I hate them, you can't stop them or hurt them back.

I am willing to accept that for how much it has stopped camping.

When they are on you its annoying, there is no way to sugarcoat it.  I am pro-CV and I want them out of the game when they pick a single target.  But life sucks and this is PVP and they beat me.  No different than when a Cruiser sails broadside for 30 seconds and I delete them from 20+km with the first volley of the game.

Sometimes you are the bug, sometimes you are the windshield.

Nope.  I play mostly 5-7 cruisers, and there are only a handful down there with radar.  Lately, the ship I am reaching for the most is Boise, which has no radar.  A 30 knot cruiser with 11km detection has no way to kill that 35 knot DD with 6km detection unless the DD makes serious mistakes...or has a friendly DD to help hunt.

I also rely on those DDs to spot other targets for me when I am not open water shooting, and also to detect battleship threats that I need to react to.  As a cruiser player I /need/ those friendly DDs to find threats and targets.  I don't need CVs.  Period.  I /really/ do not need CVs driving DDs that I rely on out of the game.  They don't cap, and they don't spot reliably.  They'll keep someone lit up just long enough to dump their ammo, then the spotting is gone.

CVs are detrimental to the game on many different levels, but driving away DDs is the most important.

I haven't noticed less camping at all, tbh.  I think that's CV main propaganda.
