Only way to explain this Matchmaking. Guessing they're all off at the convention.

Let me look at the recent wows ship additions:

  • smolensk - farms bb from 19km and pretty much only takes over pen dmg
  • venezia - farms bb from long range and so slippery bb can't reliably hit them
  • goliath - high HE pen and fire chance means they slap bb harder than they can cruiser with their bad shell travel times
  • EU dd - literally un-dodgeble 90knt torps for a lumbering ship like bb
  • thunderer - one looks at the server avg and 60% fire chance to know this is what bb farming heaven is made from
  • Haku (CV) - I mean the 550k world record game is from farming bb floods
  • Midway (CV) - HE DB drops for like 15k, specially on a slow bb
  • Aud (CV) - you can drop every single torp in your attack run on a bb over several passes and the bb wont be able fight back

Need to go on more?  No wonder people don't play bb anymore

Had a few battles yesterday with only 1-2 BBs but had like 4 games with 6 BBs per side. It's just what's in the queue when your match was formed.

I'm waiting for the day when MM serves up a random battle with no battleships or carriers and at least one of the destroyers is an Asashio. Then there will be screaming you could hear from Mars. :Smile_trollface:

That is a queue dump even though it is a full match.

I personally love those matches. The hefty cruisers fill in as BBs and the small ones play DD for a bit. In my experience, these battles are the most fun out there since the dynamic of BBs still exists, but the game remains mobile.

That was literally my first ever game in Asashio. (A Randoms even.)

First thing in chat... "That Asashio is so screwed..."

Maybe people are beginning to realize BBs are support class and Cruisers are more fun? :Smile_trollface:

 

:CA: All the way baby!

thats why i think the Asashio isnt all its cracked up to be, it literally relies on MM to make one of its weapon systems useful, afaik, theres no other ship that has that issue

Just wait for "subs".  All they have to do is lay low until the end and once the DD's are dead, easy win.

Happened to me once, just after Asahio came out, when every BB driver was Chicken Littling, it was amusing. Found out that the Asashio can win gunfights if it has to with some clever tactics and maneuvering.

Yes, you are right. Their is a convention and it is being held behind an island on your favorite map. You will see a ton of BB behind it sitting there chatting while they make sure that the parking attendant does not scratch the paint.

The convention is off the back of the map which is why they all que up on the edge trying to get in

Oh I didn't say it wasn't fun, it was hella fun. Including getting a ram kill on a DD who underestimated his turning radius and wasn't expecting me to turn into him for it. Our Yorck was the star of the match though, sadly I got focused down early after that ram kill but the Yorck was basically our BB, citadelling enemy cruisers left and right. His exact words were

"I'm the Battleship now!"

That replay was insane. Glad they patch out AA immunity when beginning and exiting attack runs.

That's more realistic, though more DDs would make it better as far as proportions go.  DDs formed the bulk of a navy's warships.
