So I just played a game in a Khaba with Double Midway's. Needless to say I was dead within 50 seconds of loading in.

I want my flags back :Smile-angry:

Sounds like you over extended away from your AA cruisers and got caught by CV drivers that actually worked together.

Sounds like it should not have happened since WG said there would never be multiple CV in T10 matches.

I just was sunk by a Khabarovsk because he saw where my planes were returning to at the start of the game and made a beeline for my Midway. No matter how much I requested assistance the cruisers on my team, they sailed merrily off, leaving me alone to be hunted. I spent nearly all my time in the match trying to detect and hit this single DD, until it sunk my CV. I finally got it but it was a "Flesh Wound" kill.

I've not seen two tier X CVs per team. I used to see a tier VII and X combo occasionally but I've not even seen this in a few weeks. The only two-CV-per-side matches I see now are tier IV-VI.

It sounds like the op was off alone and it should have happened especially in a double CV match in a ship that is that unmaneuverable. The soft limit in tier 10 is one per team, the hard limit is two per team.

You might be looking for sympathy but most people here probably see this and are mainly sad for the DD :cap_cool:

I was in that game...everyone was surprised to see two Midways per side.

This is where he was at the time of his death.  He was pestered by the Midway.  The Salem also was hitting him/her too.

That's some very fine positioning. :cap_look:

CVs rate it 10 out of 10 would feast again.

According to your picture, you were sunk by an Azuma. lol

 

So an Azuma + Khaba shooting at you is quite a bit different than just a Khaba.

Exactly as I guessed in my first reply, he was off on his own. Self inflicted wound.

Yea that is the first one I have seen with 2 T10 CV since WG made the cap rule.

We ended up winning 1000/329.  Some good battles between A and B.  Based on some of the comments during the game, the reds complimented our CV players for playing well (better than their CVs).  I was nearly dead from rocket attacks from both red CVs, but after I smoked near A (before this final screen shot), they left to go for the ships near C9.  For having two Midways, it was not the certain death I was expecting (I was in a Z52).  Stayed near bigger ships, D line at the start, until we moved together through B.

I was only focused by the CVs for a short time (and I smoked up), so I cannot speak for the other ships.  It was a good game.

Thats why people play DDs. So  they can huddle close to cruisers and battleships.

Because that is a super fun way to play a gunboat DD.

In CV matches DD's need to play different particularly in two CV matches. If they insist on playing like before the rework their quick death is their own fault.

 you are absolutely right. It's why so many of us have adjusted by not playing DDs at all.

As for 2 CV matches there is simply no excuse for that garbage.

Conclusion, your TX carrier has to sail closer to your team mates... But not too close otherwise you can be spotted and targeted by a battleship on the other side of the map. Set the speed and auto pilot but regularly check what's happening, auto pilot is bugged, your CV can suddenly become crazy or hit an island... And remember, you are expected to spot and protect, so your team mates can farm damage. And CV players will always suck, but there will always be CV players...

Going to a hard one per team is only going to increase queue dumps and with CV's nerfed into the ground except for unicums they are not much of a threat. It isn't that DD's are useless but that in the initial stages they can't afford to get far from supporting AA. Later in the match when the CV('s) are low on planes you can go farther off and since they are low on planes they are much less of a threat to you.
