I've played about half Lightning and half Massachusetts.  Never had to wait more than a few seconds when playing Lightning.  LOL

Another reason I switched to cruiser was the waiting time. Battleship wait seemed quite long whereas with the cruiser I went right in. Worked for me because I wanted to try playing cruisers anyway; helped me rank out so win win.

I feel like they should have left the MM alone and allowed 4 or 5 or 6 Battleships...  its what the people want to use so what if its a field of mostly BB's.. it is what it is.. why did they limit them..  sort of like dont fix what isnt broken

So they can shove CVs down our throats, of course. If they relaxed the ship type of restrictions everyone would switch the battleships so they could avoid aircraft carriers.

Again, and again the developers show that they know no one wants to play with aircraft carriers. They simply don't care.

There is a CV in every game. No wonder everyone wants to play BB.

Earlier I was trying to get a game in my North Carolina. Had to wait about three minutes before the MM could finally fit me in. Meanwhile, my Akizuki and Mogami got in in like 5 seconds. Kind of shows the current state of the meta...

CVs want to play, too, but they get limited, and you're fine with that.  What's good for the goose is good for the gander as well.

Don't like your own medicine given back to you?

I've only taken the HSF Harekaze out so far, as it's one of my favorite DDs and I am using both the 100s and my 19 pt IJN gunboat captain. I'm not overly concerned with carriers, and almost no one dares to take a radar cruiser out. The few losses I've had boiled down to a Mass. or a Tirp not playing well, and I have a feeling that these are folks who bought into higher tiers without the requisite experience.

Would love to see someone from WG or maybe a mod chime in to try give us the company line to explain this. Wondering what spin the spreadsheet comes up with.

Makes no sense.. if 100 bb's are waiting and 2 carriers then most games are carrier free. I don't get ur post but ok. Rem this is ranked sprint a quick specialty not random

In the directives there is a mission for 1900 000 damage and one for 24 000 000 potential

It's a snapshot of a particular point in time.

I am not saying it hasn't been the norm, but it would be good to have WG 'comment' on what they think has led to these ratios, should they continue.

@Hapa_Fodder @Mademoisail

This is what the matchmaking has looked like for this ranked sprint no matter when it is. Huge lines of BB's, minimal everything else.

That last ranked sprint was nothing like this, even though BB's got the most out of the arms race mode.

People don't want to take ships that lose half their health from one attack by a carrier into a ranked mode.

It doesn't help that most of the maps in this season have poor terrain for cruisers.

That’s not how the MM system works in ranked and ranked sprint. The system tries to make a game that isn’t all BBs (I’m not sure what the exact limit is), so BBs are stuck in the queue waiting on CVs, cruisers, and DDs. Remember, there is no limit to how long you can be waiting for a battle in this mode, so there are no queue dumps. As soon as these other classes (including CVs) populate the queue in appropriate numbers, MM drops them and the BBs that have been waiting the longest into a match. If CVs were few relative to DDs and cruisers, we would see more matches without a CV. But they are not, so we don’t.

The limits on CVs in randoms often make CVs players spend quite a bit of time sitting in the queue. It just so happens that the meta of this ranked sprint forces that wait on BB players instead.

Well BB's are historically well known, they have big guns which appeal to some people, they are a very strong type in WoWs, and they are by far the easiest to play ships in the game.  This leads to them being rather popular.

So, especially in something like ranked where people want a ship they feel comfortable in, playing BB's is like hugging their mum.

Absolutely no disrespect to you macktau2 - if that is what you have seen then that is what you have seen. Your logic of taking something sub optimal into battle can also not be faulted.

But your experience of matchmaking, is your experience - one persons (I'm not saying others will not have had a similar experience).

 

I was just commenting that it would nice if WG could produce the figures and possibly explain (if it remains as above) why THEY think it is the way it is. I would find it interesting, when they indicate they want all players/ship types to have an equal chance to feel 'engaged' when playing the game - that the ratio above indicates they do not.

Again, that is if the ratio presented above remains. :Smile_honoring:

i have had a heap of cv free games,  and they are too busy farming the BB's to bother with me anyway. i am a new starter in akizuki, and my biggest problem has been the other DD's

Yeah, I don't see the need to limit the number of BBs in a battle.  When I'm playing a DD, I'd love to play against 6 BBs and 1 DD.  Hilarity would ensue.  Or, alternatively, it might be cool to get an all BB game now and then.  See what it's like to have capital ships face off in a battle line.
