It appears that WG wants us to play lower tiers instead of exclusively the higher tiers.
If this is the case, then I have to wonder why the Daily Missions are all Tier V-X. If you actually want us to play Tier II-IV, then have these tier matches count towards our dailies.

Population is going down... Adding bots to low tiers helped.

What would help is giving low tier ships AA and stop the 3 cv's per team crap at low tiers. I bet so many new players rage quit around tier 4-5 because of it.

They wanted veteran players not to seal club newbies. Getting a 19-point captain and putting it in ships like St. Louis or Clemson was a thing in 2016/17. Some players playing thousands of battles in tier 3 and 4. That's the reason Daily Missions are limited to tier V and above.

Well, we are now in 2020, but I think it will be very rough for new players if WG allows Daily Missions to be done in lower tiers. Some people will still put their 19-point captains in ships lole Storozhevoi, V-25 and Izyaslav

This will add to the power creep problem.. I recommend scaling down the CV;s Disproportional DMG output.

limiting CVs to one per team would be a great start, and not just at low levels. I'm getting a little sick of facing 2x T-VIII CVs when I take out a T-VI DD.

Poor Bogatyr, true. But I have not seen a post about 3 CV's per team since May.

I am getting close to a 10-point Captain in the USS South Carolina & USS Smith because I play them so much.

If you play that much, it doesn't matter. Just your experience in that particular ship will make it difficult for newbies to outplay you. A 10-point or 19-point captain would be icing on the cake.

Not to mention the USS Smith shares several characteristics with ships like V-25, Campbeltown, & Clemson, so it might "radiate" (?) some of the skill. I have them all btw.

This is good. They should encourage lower tier play more. They barely make lower tier ships now. Some people prefer earlier era ships than the higher tiers. Bothers me this preference is considered "seal clubbing" by some people. Newbies should be at the high tiers if they choose, experienced players should be at the low tiers if they choose the best way for a sustainable game is where it makes sense to develop content for all your tiers not just the last few.

I've stopped playing low tiers because of ships like the Kamikaze.  They absolutely farm the lower tiers and rack up such ludicrous averages its made it nearly unplayable.
