I've been an avid ranked player since my birth with WoWS. I have noticed though that BB's can park themselves and farm massive damage at the expense of teamplay. So, what I mean is it seems they don't care if we lose or win they just park and carry on and let DD and CL spot and farm the enemy until we are dead or have won the game.

I might add, if DD or CL die, they are more likely to get top score due to more intense action and people showing broadside etc etc

the downside of ranked is that you get more <not very competent players> in your teams than in randoms, the upside is its only a 7v7 so you can carry more than in randoms

47 % WR in ranked, 48 % WR in randoms.

Given the smaller sampling size of the former this is well within expected parameters to the point of actually matching.

 

Secondly, ofc BBs are overpowered - which is not specifically tied to ranking.

 

 

How do you think CB would look if not for the limit to 1 BB?

Yes but also the snowball effect of a 6v6 or a 7v7 is bigger so every ship lost counts as 2 in a random battle. Usually the first team to lose a ship is the one losing the battle...

It's usually the less bright ones that do that - the better BB players realise that if they lose their side's DDs before the enemy does, they're largely blind and therefore deader than plaid...

Well dds are supposed to spot (yes even cls to a degree) ie hunting the enemy dds and screening the (usually large) bb contingent against torps, in return a bb should tank damage and blap enemies, its a team effort...

I played a single ranked battle thus far. In my Jutland.

 

At least I saved a star :cap_popcorn:

But DDs seem to be doing pretty fine anyway. A little bit too fine even. It's the players that are bad in them.

 

The enemy team the top 3 was filled with DDs exclusively. Unfortunately I was not able to carry this time.

Notice how the BBs are all placed more towards the bottom.

And yes, I know this is just a single battle. But it is one battle more then you have shown :Smile-_tongue:

As a DD i spot and cap etc, and look out for enemy DD....even if my spec is gunboat like kita GB spec. Same thing, BB can get HUGE damage hits and because some survive to the end they get easy targets.

I dont understand the problem. BBs farming damage only on other BBs? Can be a problem ofc, BBs should also shoot DDs and certainly focus Cruisers first. But it doesnt work all the time. I had a ranked game today in Musashi, where i did 240k damage, but i couldnt shoot the 2 DDs. They just sat behind islands all game long. And our 2nd DD didnt do anything expect run clueless around on the map. Our Buffalo also didnt support our Black (who tried his best to get rid of the DDs).

I simply couldnt do anything. I parked myself at ~12km from the DDs so their torps couldnt reach me. Trying to keep the other BBs in check, dislodged the Missouri sitting at the Cap waiting to radar.

Luckily, the enemy neptune also tried to farm me and not help his DDs.

So in the end, i basicly solo killed the enemy Musashi and missouri (both >100% of their base HP) and another 40k on their Neptune, while tanking 2,6 million aswell.

 

The problem is never the class, its the people PLAYING those classes. BBs can be stupid - so can be Cruisers and DDs. But you should never reflect previous losses on your future teammates, thats when you start to be a noob yourself. (ofc if you know someone to be a bad player who does stupid stuff, then you should play around that)
