I thought there was a hard cap on DDs? I have been playing T8 and have had several games with 4 DDs a side and a few more with 3.

One of my battles tonight I had an area saturated with over 20 torps, how is this fun? The area was so saturated with torps, I ate 3 of them even while using the WASD hack.

There should a hard cap on BBs. I have been playing T8 and have had several games with 4 BBs a side.

One of my battles tonight I had an area saturated with over 15in shells, how is this fun? The area was so saturated with shells, I ate 3 of them even while using the WASD hack.

The hard cap is 4.

Actually the hard cap is five, the soft cap is four. However if a DD in in the queue for more than three minutes the limit goes back to five.

At least you can see what is shooting.

What happened to the 4(5) DDs on your team?

Did you know Vlad is seriously deadly to spotted DDs inside of 12km, so long as you shoot them?

Except there actually is a hard cap for DDs.

I recognise the 2nd torp from the left as one of mine, it was a present to you actually, and it was nice that you turned to receive it

Yeah, because BB players are well known for never shooting unless a red ship has LOS on them... did you even try to engage your brain before typing?

The only redeeming quality of this post is that it isn't another complaint thread about CVs. Otherwise, complaining about too many DDs in a match is... I don't even know how to describe it. The idiocy of the OP is blocking any intelligent response I might have had. Personally I don't think there should be a cap on DDs if there isn't one on BBs or CA/CLs. The CV cap makes sense though. Thats just my personal opinion though

Was in a match once with 15 DDs.  This was over 1 1/2 years ago.  Needless to say, it was not a fun match.  Gunboat DDs ruled the match and 10-12 DDs died very quickly,,, that's all I remember cause i was in an IJN torp boat that died early.

I think the cruisers are the only ship type that doesn't have at least a soft cap.

They kinda are dead.  DDs made up ~21% of all random games last week.  That's a ~2.5 DDs per team average.  Now contrast that with the current  BB population of ~40%, and that gives us ~4.9 BBs per team.  BTW, cruisers were ~32% and CVs ~7% of games played.

BBs and cruisers both have the 5 per team "hard" cap, no soft cap.  Cruisers have had the highest population since the rework (now overtaken by BBs with the recent RU BB release).

I was going to answer this post earlier, but decided to let it roll.

This post was an experiment in the base toxicity of this community..... Yes, you people that just were rude, condescending and relatively jerks have been baited.TBH, it is not any one class of ship that is the cancer..........

To those of you concerned enough to be kind and responded constructively, even if this thread was absurd as some other complaint threads I have seen over the last few months, thank you. You actually help build up this community.

It is nice to know who the people are willing to help, and sucks that there are those that are more than willing to kick people who are down.

It also goes to show you that trolls are just there to troll.

Post stupid, lazy posts, get stupid, lazy responses. Saying "It'S A sOciaL exPerIMent!!" makes you look even more ridiculous. How can anyone reply with helpful advice to a barebone complaint post?  The only possible replies were "yes there is a hard cap" or "no, there isn't a hard cap."

No sympathy from me.
