Im seeing at least 3-4 times as many DDs camping behind the BBs at the rear of the map, compared to 8.3/4.

Not spotting.

Nor capping.

Let alone wanting to fight another DD.

just lurking, missing 90% of their max range torps and wondering why there's yet another steamroll of the team they're on.

All under the watchful eye of zero CVs in the  games observed recently. Yep, it was definitely the CVs that ruined DDs. Even when there are no CVs they are so traumatised that they cant play.

It takes a while for people to adjust to meta changes so what your point?

Played Fletch, Yug, and Cossack, and never saw any of that. It was nice to play DD and not get griefed. 

Had 2 CV crapfest T10/T8 today too. I can't even imagine the kind of mind that thought that garbage was a good idea. And here we are in 0.8.5 and still no fix for that utter trash. I hope the devs who thought that was a good idea spawn eternally in two CV games in a Mikasa.

Average gameplay has been heading south for the last year or so.  Radar started some of the dysfunction around capping.  CVs were just the nail in the coffin. 

I don't think you'll ever get back to the good old days of aggressive capping.  Lemming trains are the wave of the future and you're not going to be able to entice people away from that sort of passive play style.  Particularly with the new laser beam BBs coming down the pike.  It's camp fests all the way down from here.

Yeah, I miss the days when I could get in a cap in Fubuki and spam out torps and knife fight with other DDs. Radar and CVs have eliminated most of the wonderful knife fights that used to take place in caps.

At least the flavor of the month will change, so that's something. Can't spend too much time disliking one specific class, have to expand to others too.

..ehh,, many games like this. Not just DDs. The average random games dominated by players, who have absolutely no clue where to go, and what to do.... including tier X.......

The DDs will adapt - again - to the new meta just in time for the next patch which will restore aircraft health and bring the CVS back. 

Cant believe people STILL pay to play this game.

Cowards. The captains ought to be sacked and their commands given to Girl Guides, who would probably do better. :Smile_trollface:

Hey dude, nice to see that you re-installed the game. Before the month that I had said it would take you :cap_haloween:.

More on topic, many people are forgetting that we are now into the beginning of the two month madness known as summer on WOWS. Schools are closing/closed and the kiddies are gonna be running rampant on the game (plus it was a holiday in Canada yesterday). So expect tons of non-capping, torp spamming from the back line coming up.

2 CV games should never be an option at any tier. Had one with two T8's per side over the weekend, the red guys were smart and paired up to hunt our dds. It was not nice being the focus of two squads of rocket planes. Ours focused on farming damage on bbs. Game was over pretty quick once our two dds were sunk as the bbs just sat in the back waiting to die while the enemy pushed in.

Ha I thought of you when I re-installed. I came back because AA finally made the game playable again, and the number of CVs has dropped, so it was kind of a shock to get a 2 CV crapfest. Luckily I was in Georgia, with half-decent AA, and the Red CVs only griefed me once.

I dont know what game your all playing but it's not this one. I played 4 games with CVs yesterday out of 7 total in Grozovoi. Every game the CV was able to make 3 passes on me with DFAA on and a cruiser close to me. So this "freedom" you speak of was just eliminated with the patch. Maybe next time before you complain how DDs wont go cap make sure you know what your talking about first.

Simple solution players need to actively hunt dds. That means dd on dd violence, however no dd player will do that so gg .

Yeah, I was just in a Midway v Midway game and my little Benson buddy (who did end up capping) lost half his health in the first minute of the game.  And I was in a DM less than 4 km away.  The rest of the team facerolled though so it didn't really matter.  We got pointed out in the first 10 minutes.

Miss those days, blistering knifes fights in caps between 3-4 dd's shells fying everywere torps all over the place!

Had a lot of fun playing Destroyers back then...

So much whining..I think the game better then ever. See my article on type1, and type 2 players. I have no problems with CV's, and I play as a dd MAINLY right now.  I miss the fun of CV's since theyve been nerfed so bad..but I;ll have to adjsut and continue tickling ships to death, cause lets be honest..thats ALL that they can do.

Sir Superwhiner...I take it you wont like subs either when they enter the game this year.

Out of the handful of 8.5 matches I’ve played in Midway... carriers aren’t neutered. You can still put up some good numbers you just have to be way more thoughtful about how you do it. No more yoloing planes into a mob of ships to get a quick strike. It just won’t happen anymore. I haven’t tried T8 yet since they get uptiered so much they are generally not fun.
