So, one game in, and I can see there is no way 8 T5/T6 ships can win vs 5 T8s.

The six T5 cruisers folded so fast from T8 BB fire it was ridiculous.  It took one volley for most of them and then they were no more.  I had smoke and it took 2 volleys to kill me in smoke.

3 T8 BB + 1 T7 DD and 1 T7 cruiser  Vs 1 T6 BB, 1 T6 CL, 6 T5 CL and 1 T5 DD.  This was a slaughter, there was zero chance we could win.

 

It sounded good, but in practice it was a total waste of time.  T5 and T6 CL are useless against T8 BB that can get multiple citadels from any angle they hit you on. 

If we had had 5 BBs instead of 1 we may have had a chance, but the T5 cruisers died so fast it was not funny.

So who is to blame if  you bring the wrong tool to do the job?

You know a lot of Seal-clubber wannabes will queue in T8 BBs precisely to munch on low tier cruiser citadels... yet you bring them food...

I have been using 5, 6 and 7 ships the most since the start. Winning isn't difficult unless the team plays very stupid and the opponents don't. I gave up on the tier 8 since it seems it doesn't matter how well the team plays the larger opposing force easily kicks butt.

@ArIskandir I think I torped you (FF) in a match yesterday.

Oh it was you that torped my Ognevoi. I made a sudden throttle forward, we won easily so no harm done :Smile_playing:

Next time don't torp "through" a DD smoke, we are constantly playing with the throttle because we expect torps, but from the "front" side :Smile_veryhappy:

Too many CL's on the low tier team.  The low tier team's best chance is if they have 4 or so torpedo DDs so that you can overwhelm the BBs.  And as good as a tier 8 DD might be, it can only be one place at any given time, whereas 4 low tier DDs can spread out and start spamming torps from different angles.

Dear Dude Excel Grease! I guess you know Goltz, Me, I'm one... No, the awesomest CV player. Well... Now grinding CV mine, MY ship is the Parsival, so I play the upper team. Always win. Simply drop fighters and fly around the reds. Team mates will shell the pigs one after the other. Later stage, Me, I, will sunk the rest. Am I a genius? In this case no...

... Higher tiers, longer ranges, etc... Asymmetric is fun, but once your game style is biased, it's boring.

Goltz, The Pig.

Low tiers ships are for sure disadvantaged in this mode, but it's definitely possible to win and I've seen it happen quite a few times.

Check out the following post with multiple examples of low tier teams "spanking" high tier teams.

This game mode is stupidly fun... when there are no bots.

You are making me blush bro...

Tho indeed, the low tier team has a fair chance to win if they play smartly.

While I agree, that is too many CLs on the low tier side, I do not make MM choices.  It is not like I picked the whole team, MM did that for me.  If this is the kind of matches you get it is a pointless game mode!  The recommendation of me bringing 4 or 5 low tier DDs is out of my capability.

You can always guarantee bringing one. Tho, it's too late now... It's too late.:Smile_bajan2:
