Every green BB is in front of the CAs. According to what you read on the forum this is damn near impossible with passive BB play being the norm. I do salute my brave CA comrades though for bravely holding down the rear.

While I love that this happened, 
There is a few things I can point out,
1. You are one of those battleships 
2. How did the game end?
3. As long as you're having fun why care about conversations had on a forum?

1. Yes... I thought I was bringing up the rear but then I took a close look at the mini map and said wth.

2.  We won... it wasn't a close game but it wasn't a blow out either.

3. You're right I shouldn't... but with all these Dead Eye is ruining the game posts I just wanted to point out that not all BB drivers are passive.

Eh when I play ships like Colorado (grinding up the USN fast BB line) my slow speed does force me to play as a sniper, although I still do not use deadeye since I can not hit anything over 16.2 km (Colorado's detection range with camo). However, I do still push up when I finally sail to a flank.

 

in my two fast battleships that I have in my fleet, my flagship Georgia (bought with coal) and Scharnhorst (still not sure how I obtained her) I do indeed push up aggressively as I want to use my secondaries within 10.8 and 9.1 km respectively

No, it actually complements them.

When the enemy Deadeye BBs keep their distance, pushing with your own Deadeye BBs makes them move back even further, and doesn't let the enemy get a long range combat advantage.

This means that your smaller ships can play the middle and have better support than the enemy's.

I have it on almost all my BBs just for that reason.

I am noticing a lot of people are making some strong assumptions about this battle in their posts. I look at this image, and realize that your battleships are 4 pushing battleships and 1 flex that could go either way. Of your three cruisers, the only one I question staying back is Moskva, and even then some people do build it to snipe. Your team was clearly playing your ships correctly, which is much better than most random teams right now. Congratulations on the win, your team deserved it.

Tbh I thought OP was pointing out to all DDs being alive while all caps are taken or being contested and there's a CV in the match, tho it is just a T8.

Depends on the map.  CAs need some good terrain to push up.  Good forward and flank protection.  On the other hand, a BB only needs flank support, as they can usually tank without forward support (not to mention desire an opening for their lower trajectory shells).   Without good terrain, CAs need to resort to rely on speed and maneuver and  fire from range.  This is more normal than exception in today's meta on maps like this.

Red Rocket Squadron is pretty terrifying to see up close

I always enjoy reading what you post. Unlike many... myself included... you know what you're talking about when it comes to playing this game. Have you submitted your CC application yet for the recently open position???:Smile_child:

I can even appreciate the way I've been chastised and admit that maybe I was a little too harsh towards my CA teammates.

This is not the norm. Cherry picking a single game doesn't make it the norm either.

Don't get me wrong, I applaud your BB's for moving up, wish it happened more often but the norm is BB's sit up the back and snipe.

that's the correct play. DDs in front, BBs in the middle dealing and tanking damage, cruisers in the back just raining fire.
