Matchmaker did its job.

You and your teammates didn't.

Every once in a long while a queue dump will look like this.

Replay please!!!  I want to see how a shima gets 4 kills in a 4 minute battle.

A good guess is the OP's team was chanting "We are not afraid" while they advanced to meet their doom and that one or two of the kills were "kill steals" of badly damaged ships. Some times you are the club and some times you are the seal. While the seal times are frustrating, roll with them and enjoy the club times.

But even so.  You dont usually get your first salvo of torpedoes off until the two minute mark.  In a four minute battle, in a shima, that means you get one salvo off and maybe just squeeze part of a second salvo in. 

So I am guessing that the guns were involved.  Kill securing likenyou said, but even then... If guns were involved, the Shima most likely wasn't off on his own scouting because that is often suicide.  If he was running with other ships, it cuts down the opportunities to launch torpedoes in the early game.  Again suggesting the Shima only got a single salvo off.

I am just supper curious to see what happened and maybe learn something.

Replay pleas!!$$

I ask myself... Why do people mistake fleet performance with MM.

I dont see a MM problem. What I do see is one team excelled in team play while the other team did not even try.

As many others have pointed out, as long as we have situations in where there is no re-spawn after you're sunk. Blow outs will continue to acquire regardless of any intervention/well intentions to "fix" it.

If one dont even try, then no one else will even bother...

Hate it when it gets to those extremes, but it is what it is

I wish it was a long while between queue dumps. These are common when I run T8 ships. Drove T8's in 3 randoms the other day. In 2 there were at least 8 T10's. The other was about evenly split with 5 T10's, 4 T9's & 3 T8's.

That is the real problem with tier 8, the recent MM tweak that creates more tier 8/9 matches actually works but when they are dragged up to tier 10 they are usually outnumbered by the tier 10's. If you had seven or eight tier 8's with the rest spread between nine & ten life would be pretty good.

We agree on that. What makes it worse is I drive a T6 & see 3 or 4 T8's in the match. Now you know why I don't buy lottery tickets.

I'm betting the replay would be a textbook example of one of the cons of deathballing.....

And in a T10 match with T8 CVs too...:Smile_facepalm:

Nope. Skilled players outright stomped a bunch of non-skilled players.

Win or lose, the super short matches aren't good for the game.

good god. I feel for you but at the same time, I'm glad it's not just me who gets thrown into the special team all the time.

I agree.  I am picturing all the torps from a single salvo going into a mass of ships and almost all of them hitting something.

And whose fault is it that those players are skilled or unskilled? Certainly not matchmaker's.

Yes, if all the skilled players are on one team and the bad players are on the other, it is because of MM and nothing else.

Everyone has had that game where there's a top tier division on one team and two pink players on the other team.

Which team would you rather be on?
