Excellent joke,seriously still trying to stop laughing. (I am of course sarcastic, in case that is hard to see).

 

Today the queue peaked at 300 BBs... What the actual hell...

We are looking into reducing the BB population...

 

BUT ARE GIVING EVERYONE THE ABILITY TO GET A FREE TIER 8 BB

 

Alas even selling Hood for £90 hasn't reduced numbers!

Not a single time I got more then 5 bbs on each team. Business as usual.

Haunted by bad teams. Pestered with horrible MM. Hated by RNG. Harrased by dispersion.
Cursed with loosing streaks. Hectored by self proclaimed admirals. Stalked by pink ships.
Oppressed by HE spam. Nagged by torpedo walls. Bullied by enemy aircrafts.

With
Supercontainers plagued with upgrades.

WG do something about that.

They won't look into that until the day the queue for BBs is over nine thousaaaaaaaand!

 

On a more serious response, I'm actually starting to really wonder if they even really care about it.

That is the base problem.. 5 BBs per side are a pain in the bum

Too incredibly thick to fit in. Below average, zero skills, IQ lower than WR.

Weird, i get 5-6 DD per side WAY more often than 5 BB ... Usually its 3-4 BB, 3-4 CA and 5-6 DD ..

Working as intended ..

5 is only one more then WG's own 'max' preffered BB's per game. It's the games with 8 BB's, 2 DD's 1 CV and you in your shiney new cruiser which is the real fun part of WoWs :honoring: 

 

Though mostly it's 5-7 BB's not 8, guess it could be worse. 


"First they nerfed the carriers and I didn't speak out because I didn't play carriers.                                    Then they nerfed the torpedoes and I didn't speak out because I didn't play IJN DDs.

Then they nerfed cruiser HE and I didn't speak out because I didn't spam HE.                                             Then they nerved concealment on every class except BB's, and I didn't speak out because I didn't have common sense

Then the BBabies came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me."

Nah, team make up varies during time of the day, ongoing mission, tier, etc. You just might play at the exact time when it looks like that.

 

My comment though was regarding number of Battleships in the queue and the fact that from my perspective, it had no visible impact on my teams, compared to any other day when I played. Bottlesheeps are always too numerous. QUACK!

Me too. I don't play Belfast often, but when I do I love to see a BB heavy match. Tonight I played a game where I used smoke once and still burned down 3 BBs :trollface:

I liked the MM today, 3DDs max per side, it was great. Had a good run in BBs and DDs.

Considering that I actually enjoy playing BBs I'm actually part of the problem :playing:  

The way I see it that issue isn't that players enjoy their BBs, but the current meta on the EU server. BB players actively try to avoid each other and rather engage in long chases instead of actually engaging and sinking the other team's BBs. Every time I see a Tirpitz sitting at 20km taking potshots across the horizon  I'm actually feeling sorry for the player since he misses the fun and excitement of brawling.

The game needs some kind of mechanic which actually encourages BB players to get at least to 10km range and closer. The problem is not the number of BBs, but the number of players who refuse to fight.

The Bismark missions that involve x damage or x exp are easy mode with Belfast against these BBs

These players make me angry

 

The German BBs are built for brawling, turtleback armour and excellent secondaries.
