Solution: play mid tiers. There you have games with 2 Cruisers now, because CVs and BBs are best buddies there.

 

And thats why looking at average numbers tells you very little about the state of the game in specific tiers @ColonelPete ...

BB population was lower after the CV rework und during US Cruiser split.

 

I know, I was just joking :cap_old:

I usually appreciate your commitment to refute the [edited] with data, but in this case it was not necessary.

Mea culpa, I will remember to write "/ s" for those without sense of humor :cap_like:

Yeah, 4-5 DDs per side happened a lot in the last days, they usually are quite difficult matches because you have to kill something fast before all 44% win rate destroyers on your team suicide by getting torped in their smoke :Smile_teethhappy:

Drives me up the bloody wall when that happens especially in my georgia, couldn't even push D because our DD's refused to spot theirs (we had more stealthy dd's) and they had 3 hovering around the bloody cap spamming torps.

 

Yeah we lost that game. Oh well.

Smolensksksksksks... ks, are easy prey for Heavy Cruisers. And personally i dont mind them that much in BBs.

 

I mean yea sure theres 16 shells raining on you every 3 seconds, but just calm down bro they're only 130mm and only can do so much.

 

IMO Smolensk is our new OP Kutuzov. If anyone remembers back in the day when Kutuzovs used to roam the battlefields spamming HE from smoke at 20km or so. :cap_old:

 

EDIT: 

nm bring a smolensk to mid tiers pls....

Disgusting, I bet the Nurnberg / Furutaka / Koningsberg and De Grasse had a blast with 5 enemy BB's.

 

Ow wait, that wasn't the point right :Smile_hiding:

Out of curiosity, where do you get that data from? There seems so be quite a bit of correlation. I'd love to take a closer look.

Well, the sum of all graphs has to be 1.

I take the weekly stats from here:

That's what I call dedication.

 

Ofc it's a bit unfortunate, that the maplesyrup data seems to be a bit neglected. At least they haven't realized over a period of more than 2 years there is a new french nation, not to speak of the more exotic nations and the new pan-Eurpean and soon to come italian-line. I am not arguing any of your statements, but there is potential for bias. DD ratio could be higher due to the recently added french DDs. CV ratio is lower, as all other lines are missing french ships.

The nations and ships are all included.

I'm baffled by this. Just by personal experience, CV numbers have recovered a lot during the last couple of patches? You get a lot of games with 4 CV's in mid-tiers. Yet the numbers from Maple Syrup seem to show near-constant low numbers in the last couple of months?

This is Tier VII+, Tier VI and IV CV are not included.

When you look at Tier I to VI, CV had 8,06% last week, nearly fourtimes the relative numbers of high Tier CV.

What is the problem with BB overpopulation? Thats where the most damage comes from! Also be careful for what you wish there are some rumors that yamato will get buffed!

WG admitted "BB overpopulation" around introduction of German BBs back in 2016. Measures WG did to counteract that:

*cue cricket sound*

 

When WG admitted "DD overpopulation" in early 2019 they immediately rolled MM rule to softcap destroyers to 4 per team.

 

And while its easy to farm nice damage numbers on BBs, killing one for actual game impact can be extraordinarily hard, even more so when its piloted by someone with two cells instead usual one.
