RANKED = 4-5 DDs per team including 2-3 OP Kitas every match.  Hey WG, ya think you can figure this out and fix it???? Just maybe???  Or hire someone that can? I mean, my 11 yo kid figured it out, can you????

 

fix, cap dds to 3 max, maybe 2... wait in Q to long?  to bad, pick something else.....

What exactly would the solution be? Everyone has figured out that the best way to affect your win rate is to play DD. How do you propose to change that?

Well they could still be a DD player themselves, after all Kitakaze can be deadly in DD vs DD gunfights Lol.

As someone who will ONLY touched ranked right now only if I'm playing Kitakaze, this makes me laugh.

Not my fault DDs are the most important class in the game (when CVs don't exist) and that having an above average player in one increases your chance of victory 10 fold.   

The ONLY way to stop this problem is to allow CVs to keep the DDs in check, otherwise DD is the most powerful class without question.

WG is aware that DDs are the most influential class in the game, potentially minus CVs (which swing back and forth based on which buff/nerf patch you look at).

From a meta/ecosystem perspective, though, the problem is more that cruisers at T9 are notoriously weak, leaving mostly DDs and BBs. And if it's just BBs and DDs, the DDs are generally going to win out in importance, since the DD is heavily advantaged in that matchup.

I got a counter for the Kitakaze fest in the caps. 

Radar cruisers.

Actually haven’t seen any Kitakaze, and only one Radar cruiser that was any kind of a bother, (a Kronstadt, in my second game, and first win.)

Playing Fletcher; a loss, and four straight wins so far. Currently at R13.

You could have just said you haven't really played it much...

I won’t play Kitakaze, certainly not in Ranked, because I don’t like it at all.

Best solution possible that everyone can do:

Instead of smashing W or S the whole match, play with the speed and use AWSD hax to avoid torps :)

Grinding Ranked in a Georgia not in Kita or Benham btw

I drive a Yugumo and I run a no smoke build..  I eat Kitakaze's...I abuse Kidd's.. I munch down on Fletcher's and Z's... I find the french tasty and a light.. and I feed fish to russians DD's..

and the pan asians?... 2 minutes later I'm ready for a second helping..

It's not the ship,, the ship helps, but it's only going to do as well as It's driver.

They are talking about Kitakaze.

Kitakaze isn't a terror because of its torpedoes.

Too much dds: WG Please nerf dds 2 OP

Too much cruisers: God damnit WG nerf radar/do something about the HE spam!

Too much battleships: Stop rewarding campers WG!

Everything perfectly balanced: Ranked is so boring WG why should we play it?

I've fought one Ranked battle before other things I wanted to do got in the way, and that was battleship-heavy with only one destroyer (and our only cruiser was an Alaska, LOL).

With no T9 destroyers in my port, I doubt I'll be fighting another!

I'm not a BB whiner by any means, but there really ought to be some sort of cap here to make for a balanced team composition. Soft of two, hard of three, on all types.
