They should all be banned for 30 days as they are ruining the game for 24 players. Simple.

Question is...were you in a position to support even 1 of them or were you hiding behind an island waiting for all the red DDs to die before you would come out & risk scratching your paint?

Another question, how good were the DD players on the other team. DD's are brittle and it doesn't take more than a minor mistake to end up dead.

8  <----- :Smile-_tongue:

 

red team would love it  :Smile_trollface:

 

 

But then we can also argue the probability that green team does not care and move on ... so it could any where between 1-8. Probability 1: all the green team doesnt care but only OP, so that will be 1

Probability 2: 1 of the remaining and OP does care so that will be 2

so on so forth

 

We also need to consider that 4 dd players: are they all die happy doing so? or 1-4 die happily?

DD: Plays the objective, tries to spot, dies.

BB: Waste of DD!

 

 

 

DD: Plays safe, lives.

BB: Coward DD!

And BBs who don't move at least two rows up from the spawn point,  should they be banned as well?

Bingo.

@Toxygene, you and parkedo (quoted above) have similar battle counts (yours is higher by almost 1k).  Yet, I am inclined to think he has incurred a bit more wisdom on game things than you.

Please resist the urge to rush to the forums after a bad game.

Nooo, they are the guardians of the team, the solid solution of enemy attempts to sneak from behind, our proud snipers.

They're always here in the forums, in battle, in private messages, to remind those ignorant DDs how to do their jobs.

The larger problem with early DD deaths is that WG has not revisited their nation balancing formula, so some teams will be left without the right number of ships for the role. It's not fun playing something like Khaba when your Shimas and Gearings die 2 minutes in and you're expected to contest caps with almost 10km conceal.

I recommend that nation balancing be updated from a strictly national basis to a role basis. Using T10 DD as an example, you could put Gearing, Somers, Daring, Shima, Hayate, YY, and Halland in one bucket, Harugumo, Khaba and Kleber in another, and Groz, Z-52, Marceau and Smaland in a third. Does every ship fit into a role perfectly? Of course not, but nation balancing is no longer adequate.

Depends on how they die. Every so often you get a wall of random blind fire torps from a pair of Shimas and a couple DDs get dev struck with little warning. Driving a DD into a cap protected by radar cruisers is, on the other hand, criminally stupid.

Or a whole team of Khabarovsks and Kleibers. Not a lot of stealth or spotting, but they are fast while being ineffective.

THAT was an "insult"???  :Smile_ohmy:  I'm sorry, Snowflake!  Here's a cookie to ease your fragile sensibilities!

 

 


Oops.  Sorry, no cookie.

Now adjust fire and get your [edited] back in the game.  Or, go do chores...whichever.

I can see you sitting in a dark bedroom somewhere, handing out insults all day. You go ahead and have yourself a nice evening.

Check my post history.  I don't hand out insults.  Every once in a while, however, a life-experienced, military vet like myself comes across a patty-cake comment I have a hard time catering to.  I find your latest comment ironic, since I also see you sitting in a dark bedroom with no experience to back up your perceptions of the world.  Perhaps if you had seen some of it...?

8.  It is entirely possible the 12 on the enemy team quite enjoyed the romp.
