CVs are obviously preventing people from playing DDs at low tiers. What a shame!

Thought there was a hard cap of 5 DD's per side?

Wait until you go to co-op & find that the 3 soft 4 hard cap on BBs has 3 of the 4 BBs on your side bots.

Then the next battle breaks the 3 soft cap on DDs by having 4 DDs with 3 of them bots.

Kinda defeats the point I think.

The hard cap is lifted when there's a lot of them in queue AND been waiting for more then 3 min... After 3 mins, its queue MM dump.

My experience is that this as a not very good DD player is it is more of a psychological issue than anything else and that CV's in the low tiers have a much larger impact on larger ships. When CV's are present DD's need to play different particularly in the early part of the match to avoid where the CV(s) will send their planes.

It's funny how so many people come here and decry the lack of players at low tiers but when someone actually plays at low tiers they are accused of "seal clubbing." Actually, if you want to know, I'm working my way through the Five Epochs of the Navy campaign.

I thought it was BBs, as they cannot counter or evade.  A tier 4 CV usually can't 't hit a DD for jack.

Point was they may tend to discourage new players.

Actually, I don't care what you were doing.

My comment was a double entendre based on a popular Friday evening activity.

Laugh; I promise it won't hurt. :cap_haloween:

I suppose that "clubbing" is popular among people who have nothing better to do. Friday evenings, I was usually either on-shift with the EMS service or heading out to do some research, scuba diving, etc. over the weekend. I allowed myself to be dragged to bars a few times in college. I don't drink so I found them noisy, crowded, and tedious. It quickly became apparent to me that most of the people there were drunk, stoned, or in a self-induced hypnotic trance. In their addled minds they may have been having fun but to an outside observer their actions were ludicrous.

I've done that more times than I'd like to admit. It's provided for some funny moments in chat.

That and also the need to match asymmetric double fail division while maintaining tier and ship balance. 

Note the MM matched a fail division BB5/CA4/DD4 to a fail division CA5/DD4/DD4 while maintaining overall tier/ship balance.

While for the most part things are evenly matched now, fail divisions and queue dumps still can cause mismatches. I was in a match this morning where there were two DDs on one side and one on the other.

Seal clubbing?
Now see here, folks.  Once someone graduates from "protected match-making", then they're "fair game".  :Smile_izmena:

The Five Epochs of the Navy campaign is fun, by the way.  I enjoyed it.  :Smile_Default:

I was sailing in some low-tier battles, yesterday, while partcipating in Naval Battles.  I was playing various low-tier DD's in random battles and saw plenty of other DD's on the teams.
I play CV's and then DD's.  And my fellow Clan-Member, @FurphyForum sails his BB's and Cruisers.  That way we're unlikely to sail the same type of ship at the same time and we get to sail ships we enjoy playing.

Why sail low-tier ships?  Because they're fun.  :-)

What's really sad is the only time I see DD numbers like that is when I take out a DD. :cap_viking:
