    Is this a record?

    My record was 11 with an Edinburgh at the very beginning of a match, when I was the first ship detected. But as it was on North, few of them actually had a line of fire, and I lost only about a quarter of my HP. Oh yeah, and I am sure that the one missing was just afk

    Which forum members have you seen in random battles?

    Had Flamu in a Baltimore with some friends on the enemy team last night - they dealt with us in very short order. Made in Neptune top rank of our team, but wasn't really much of an achievement

    How are you doing in the CotE event? Share your progress

    Seems some Edinburgh follwed by Neptune grind brought me into the top 100 for ribbons. But considering that due to holiday I played only one day on week 1, I will not really be a contestant... But from my coins I got me the 3 days premium for the long weekend.

    Doesn't work for me - I don't get the confirmation email... (also not in spam folder)

    Hunt for Bismarck campaign

    Can somebody calculate the probability to get all 24 collectibles? That's 2 draws in each of the 63 missions, so 126 random 1-of-24 draws - doesn't sound promising to me. Well, we don't really know how the distribution will really be, but I guess this would be the worst case.

    An important announcement for all BB captains

    In the past I had a habit of picking up afk DDs on my BB bow and pushing them toward the next cap , sometimes using them as torp shields etc. Unfortunately, at some point I turned pink because of it, so I had to stop it

    Adressing the Battleship Plague

    Ask and you shall receive Compared to the 2 months stats that I posted about one month ago (link), on the EU server high tier BB, CV and cruiser population dropped, DDs increased. CVs are now down to about one CV round every three battles - imho target should be every second round. Still, DDs are >15% below BBs, so I really don't know where people get the idea of DD overpopulation... And there is a lot of fun and action in DD vs DD fights, so I really don't see a reason to put a limit to DDs - maybe there is still someone who might agree with me that the game is not just about BB fun...

    I don't like this suggestion to restrict the MM - the chance to sometimes getting 10vs10 BBs I'd consider a fun oddity - it is just when such oddities, or 6+ BBs (or DDs) become a common occurrence, when things are not okay. Instead of forcing MM, or trying to make ships less attractive by balance changes, maybe it would be better to give a bonus to playing other classes. E.g. make a campaign over several months where a player gets some kind of bonus/gift/whatever for playing DD/CL+CA/CV. Maybe something like earn 30% of the total experience earned in 2 month in one of those classes (with a minimum number of experience earned, e.g. min. 200k experience =average of 1000EXP in 200 battles).

    And I thought that the EU BB plague was bad

    I actually like that the MM occasionally throws such results - I like diversity in my matches. That's why I am also against such suggestions to limit the MM of BBs (or DD) e.g. to 4 max. per side. Nothing wrong with such battles as such - I'd consider them a fun oddity - it is just when we have 5+ BBs (or DDs) like 20% or 30% of the battles when I would see a problem. That's why I just asked for such statistics and WG "goals" for optimum class distribution in the community questions sticky.

    Questions of the Community

    I'd like to ask what kind of balance of ship class distribution WG considers as optimum? Currenty we (EU server) are at about 40.3% BBs, 35.6% CL/CA, 20.8% DDs, and 3.3% CVs, which means we have an average of 4.8 BBs, 4.3 cruisers, 2.5 DDs and 0.4 CV per team (based on us accessible statistics from http://maplesyrup.sweet.coocan.jp/wows/ranking/index.html for high tier ships). Along with that question, I would like to ask for some kind of graph/histogram, that shows the relative distribution of how many ships of a class are in a blattle, something like this (made up numbers!!!)

    Actually less than 5%, for the EU server it's about 3.3% of all high tier sorties are with CV - I made a bit of a statistics evaluation over here: http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?act=findpost&pid=1724819 And here is my point on CVs - I don't play them but I can still have an opinion Currently we have a high tier CV battle in about every 2.5 sorties (or <40%). My point is, if we were significantly above 50%, I'd consider the game/balance broken as well. I like battles with as much as without CVs - as such, whatever change they may make or you might ask for, the "CV battle rate" should not go (significantly) above 50%, or 1/24 (=4.17%) CVs per battle - granted, that would already be an increase of ~30% total CV battles played (from ~300k to 400k)...
  12. That sounds more like observation bias - looking on the latest videos posted on wowreplays (while it is still there... ) it looks more like DD players have something to hide - low sample size though...
  13. If you look at the tables I posted, you will see that it shows 40.3% BB battles, so I don't see how you would think that I contradict with that WG statement?!?! With respect to the hidden stats, for 466k total players counted in that 2 month period, there are 15.7k hiding their stats, <5% - I don't think that those have a significant impact...
  14. So much talk about statistics, but so few actual facts - well, here are some, based on the 2 months stats from http://maplesyrup.sweet.coocan.jp/wows/ranking/ 3/18/2017 : I only did the calculations for high tier ships, as low tier is "corrupted" by tier 1 cruisers etc. Unfortunately the site does not have stats from the Russian server, so I could only cover EU/US/Asia. As one can see, the EU is close to 10 BBs per battle, US (or better North America) at 9 and Asia below 8 (second to cruisers at 9.2!). So for WG things are not as "black and white" as they seem to us at the EU server - they have little reason to change the balance for the Asian server, no?! I took a closer look at the tier 7+ BBs on the EU server: No real surprise, it's the German BBs that are off-balance. To be precise, especially Gneisenau and Bismarck are to be blamed - these two ships together make up >20% of all high tier BB battles played on the EU server! Not really that much of a surprise either, considering the strong German community - but how can WG address this imbalance?!?! To be honest, I think the only way to address this, would be by self-restraining players - next time you hover your mouse over Gneisenau or Bismarck, occasionally move it over to a DD or CV instead. Cutting the number of Gneisenau and Bismarck battles by ~1/3, ~300k battles, shifting them to other high tier classes, would already cut the number of BBs per team (24) from 9.7 to 8.9. But something tells me that this does not reach the anonymous masses - I doubt us forum visitors would be able to leave a significant mark in those stats, and I can already hear the screams "Don't tell me which ships I shall play! I want to play my favorite ships!"... (but I started already, not playing BBs in the last two month - no other ship either though ). Maybe WG could secretly transfer them to the Asian server A closing world on CVs - I don't play them but I can still have an opinion Currently we have a high tier CV battle in about every 2.5 sorties (or <40%). My point is, if we were significantly above 50%, I'd consider the game/balance broken as well. I like battles with as much as without CVs - as such, whatever change they may make or you might ask for, the "CV battle rate" should not go (significantly) above 50%, or 1/24 (=4.17%) CVs per battle - granted, that would already be an increase of ~30% total CV battles played (from ~300k to 400k)...
