EDIT: *Entries are now closed so I can create a bracket setup for what we have.  I'll be trying to get that sorted later today* 

-----

So, I just got made into a Community Contributor <3

To celebrate, my stream kicked around some ideas and one of them felt like it was too cool to pass up.

DODGEBOMB

-----

What is DodgeBomb?

A wordplay on Dodgeball, but with CVs attempting to kill a DD opponent as quickly as possible, while the DD Just Dodges for all they're worth! 

Multiple DDs and CVs will be in a training room at one time, each with an assigned opponent (1 CV vs 1 DD).  Last DDs alive will advance to the next round, while the first CVs to kill their assigned opponent will advance as well.  Brackets will be formed as participation numbers are known.

No AA, Guns, Torps, or Smoke.  Just your wits and prayers to the RNG Goddess.

-----

What ships can we use?

The designated CV will be the Ranger.

There is no designated DD, though it must be Tier 6.  Feel free to theorycraft the best DD to win!

-----

Where are the matches played?

On the NA server in a training room.  Map will be Ocean - ST: Armor Resilience Test

This places all players fairly close to the center of the map to start with.  The DDs will be given a bit of time to head to the middle four grid-squares before start is called and the bombers head out for their targets.

-----

Are there prizes?

Yep!

Prizes to be:
1st DD: Friesland
2nd DD: Kidd
3rd DD: Monaghan

1st CV: Saipan
2nd CV: Saipan
3rd CV: Ark Royal

DD prizes are a bit nicer as being the best juke-master deserves some love~

-----

How do I sign up?

There's a signup room on my Discord.  Simply add your name and what you'd like to play.  At the moment, I'm good for letting folks sign up for both options, though for prize reasons we may have to limit finalists to a single ship type.  (It's my first time running this, so growing pains expected)

Example - "Ahskance - CV & DD"

https://discord.gg/SEuNphu

Date & Time?

12pm on Sunday, January 31st, 2021.

-----

Will this be streamed?

Yep!  I'll be running this from my twitch channel as a fun event.  Channel is https://www.twitch.tv/ahskance

If there are folks that wanted to help or stream/commentate, feel free to send me a message on Discord at Ahskance#4305

Congratulations on the CC. Just remember you were doing well before you became a CC, you can do well again without being a CC. However, I hope it all goes well with you! :cap_like:

Oh, excellent!

Is there a particular reason you chose the Ranger? Or is it just the closest thing to being Mister Average Tier 6 CV that anyone could own?

Should you not be setting limits on captain builds, to give newer players a chance? (Experienced players with 19/21 pointers might be able to eke it out a little longer.)

Doing it at a higher tier with Lexington or Midway would be blatantly unfair to the DDs.

Meanwhile on T6 specifically Ark Royal cannot be dodged due to her bombs being made to murder DDs, Loewenhardt cannot be dodged either due to a circular bomb drop pattern and Furious would likely just make it far too easy for the DDs to survive and draw out the battle way too long. Ranger thus presents the "most balanced" option on the spectrum of being able to RNG your way out and the CV killing you, giving both sides a reasonable chance to win even if the CV knows how to negate dodging attempts.
