Why so uneven? What algorithm sits behind this distribution?

I hear it's the secret skill based matchmaker where they to match the total number of battles played of the player with their opposite across a capture point.

Divisions seem to be a factor in some of these unbalanced placements.  Any on your side?

The good news is that the same number of ships will start opposite from you... so it is a nice 2v2 game in the west!

One, a Smolensk and Worcester, spawned above B and C. The red team had no divs.

This is like asking why did the Greeks used the Trojan horse  against Troy???


In a serious note... I have seen lulz spawn placements lately... I guess it adds to the Randomness ?

I Div quite a bit and often see unbalanced spawns.  It's hard to predict what's going to happen with random maps at different tiers, # of div mates and mix of div ship types.  It does seem to put 3 man Divs in the middle spawn most of the time.  The other factor of course is what the Red team has in terms of Divs as they rarely match the Green side in number of Divs or ship for ship.

I don't ever div but it always seems I am on the weak side the vast majority of the time - or so it seems.  I to  would love to know the reasons...

I've never seen less than two in Randoms, so there's your lower limit.

I've been noticing this a lot more recently?  So legit question.

Been like that forever, MM sees a CV in the match and decides to stick a BB all on their lonesome for lols I guess. 

I think it is related to division spawning though, because division ships are clustered together. My guess is MM decides spawn locations, then picks a division ship and puts all the others with it, pulling them from their spots. And since it doesn't look like it recalculates spawns after that we get asymmetrical spawns.

Could just be making that up though, it's just my best guess based on how I've seen ships spawn in.

Well, it's as cromulent an explanation as I've heard.

One flank was always a little lighter on ships but this more extreme level of unbalance is new. The good news is each group is facing an equal group.
