I just had two matches where the enemy won by capping. I was on the opposite side trying to cap the enemies. but both times the enemy caps first because our bb's ran from the cap to keep deadeye.

 

WHAT'S  THE POINT OF KEEPING DEADEYE IF OUR CAP IS CAPTURED AND WE LOSE!?

 

THIS REWORK WAS UNWANTED, UNNESSECARY AND STUPID AS HELL.

 

REVERSE IT. IT CLEARLY DOESN'T WORK.

 

prehaps, shock of shocks TEST BEFORE GOING LIVE!

It's a disaster. I was the only one left on my Izmail, we had all the caps, I ran back into a wave of torps to activate deadeye.

Hey, I THOUGHT I would survive!

I literally saw a KGV run for our cap while it was being capped. and if he just got in a few hits we could have won

I don't think it was deadeye. Probably just idioticism.

water is wet, player can be stupid.

 

As I said, people  will realize that prioritizing Dead eye will hurt their win rate and they will adapt.

The rework didn’t force your team to play poorly, their own idiocy did. Stop crying like a goddamn child.

I'm hoping WG makes changes to deadeye(10% bonus halved to 5% would be easy, but IMO it's a bad design overall), but I'm also hopeful that the problem may be self-correcting for good players as they see their win % and damage numbers go down with a 100% back line playstyle.

Yes deadeye helps accuracy at range, but it's also much easier for good players to dodge ordnance lobbed from 20-25km with long shell flight times. You still get better damage results from BBs at 10 or 15km, and can better influence cap and map control from that distance. Deadeye is good, but smart BB players should use it selectively and stay aggressive and push forward whenever possible for better overall results.

That's the glass half-full outlook of course. WG definitely still needs to look at deadeye.

but this makes toooo much sense... and the potatoes do not come to the forum and read this... so it won't happen.  I still got DD players trying to smoke my BB at least once a month, even at high tiers. "here let me help you stay concealed why you shoot", ...Me...." dude you know that mechanic went out with the dinasours...right?"

But it sure incentivized it !  He has an opinion why don't you shut your freaking mouth and let say what he wants, your an @$$ to allot of people on the forum but you must be in good with the moderators because you get to say crap like you do all the time

exactly. I was actually doing what a DD does, scout and was even trying to cap and i saw a KGV the only guy alive close enough to reset the cap run away from the cap and the enemy won by capping our base.
