Could be interesting, and it could be a nightmare depending on what comp you are fighting against.  A BB/CV/X team against a team without a CV could be brutal.  Then again it is T6, which doesn't have all that great of CVs.

This is not a random or even clan battles. A CV won't have the dpm of BB. A BB/CA/DD tm would trash the CA/DD and then cap. the best the CV can do would be to farm the BB. If the BB is an Ise then the BB can retaliate in kind.

Dream tm:

Ise/ Graf Spree/ T-61

Two Brothers in Epicenter mode?!? I might have to give Brawl a shot just to see that map/mode combo...

We had it last brawl. You either go Mexican standoff and see who moves first or you do an end run on the outher ring.

I've never bothered with Brawl and this is the first time I noticed the maps. Sounds like an interesting fight on this map.

I'm not a fan of it. It's either wait 10 minutes staring like a cat at a crack under the door then go nuts in the last 3 minutes. The other way is that one for our tm cracks under the pressure and goes Yolo and dies. Losing the game.

Actually at T6, for CL the new dutch cruiser might be an interesting option.  If it is a standoff it could use the airstrike.  On open water torps shouldn't matter at distance and the dutch HE/AP has a good punch.

The UK London would be a good option is you wanted heal + smoke.

The PA Huanghe would also be good options along with the CW Perth for rolling smoke and heaving hitting HE with decent torps + sonar - heck I might just play my Mysore for insanity!!!

Graf Spee seems to be a very strong contender. It has BB guns and torps and can delete most cruisers easily.

As for BB (excluding ISE since I don't have it)  what would be a good BB for this from the following choices
P.E Friedrich
Bayern
Fuso
Andrea Doria
New Mexico
Warspite
Izmail
Normandy

I think the German BBs have the best brawling armour layout... not sure as I rarely play tier 6

Reduce the number of wins required for the missions. I think I played 30 games last week and only managed to get 60% of the missions don...

 

The problem is that you need wins in all those games which makes it frustrating when you got bad teammates.

One problem with that. The airstrike doesn't spot ships so someone else wil have to spot. The Kikjun's airstrike range is .1 km shorter than it's vdetection range. you'd be spotted at the same time you launch your air strike.

From the Portal and the in-game description...

"Players are matched based on their skill level "

OK. So what skills exactly are you matching?  Because I just had a terrible loss due to my two team mates being potatoes. I checked their profiles and one was hidden and the other was a sub-48% WR with 67% of the damage I do, 65% of the XP I do and I had more kills in my 500 games then they had in their 1500.

That's matching skill levels?

Or by matching skill levels, does that mean only that the other team gets an equal amount of potato salad?  Just checked.  Out of the 6 total players (myself included) 3 were under 48%, one was 49 and myself at 61'ish.

This is just a 6 person version of Random with some strange map arrangements.  Oh and you can have lopsided CV games.

People have been asking for skill based MM since launch. I knew I should have never trusted what the portal said - WG makes too much money off casual players to create a skill based mode.

well gave it a shot. One and done. If you're going  to give one side a CV to perma spot the other side, it's not worth loading in. Our DD got both caps and then we were deleted one by one.  back to the "sanity" of randoms.
