I suppose that one positive of high DD numbers is that it forces us (DD players) to keep our anti-DD kung fu polished...?

why is this possible? as there is no limit for any class set. Still it is surprising for me to see this, as there are mostly BBs in queue, right?

Isn't it a new feature that cleans mm for bbabies from those terrible sneaky dds?

Obviously not going to happen, BBs outnumber every other class hard. 

but is this cause or effect? I mean i hardly play cruisers at all at the moment as I  haven't the inclination to since it's a bit more challenging and I@m still working out the dd bb thing. If there weere matches with no BBs in i'd be right in the queue for them with the cruisers.

I did see this in ranked before the commander rework. DDs are the easiest class to carry with, and lot of  try harders  got into the silver league.

My 2 cents: playing an active supportive battleship that engages in mid range can make a difference. Ships that suffer this large dd numbers are the lovely background campers. I have just won a game in an Ohio in a 4dds per side game. Killed one and survived. Sure, couldn't do that without the awesome Daring and Des that were in my team, but still they could expose more also 'cause I was constantly following them instead of trying to snipe some lolibotes. And this kept happening also in previous sprint.

lol... with 3+DDs in each ranked game all I would play for win would be radar cruisers...

Agree. Just pop a radar ship and this becomes a farm fest. Will try with radar Mino, just to see if this somehow works.

Plays broken Japanese sniping BB, wonders why nobody wants to play cruisers.

Come to randoms then, we have all the cruisers:

That was yesterday evening around 22:00 UTC, a TX battle BTW.

 

On a more serious note, there was at least one cruiser per team in the ranked battles from this sprint that I've played so far, although it's not a fair metric since I was (one of) the cruiser(s) half the time, 4 DDs (not a single time more than that, nor any battle without them) each side twice and usually two of them, sometimes just one. As for BBs... if memory serves right, eight in total is the most I've witnessed, once for now.

 

Salute.

Wow, an almost a historical accurate distribution of ships. Still, to less DDs /CVs for a realistic historic battle. Now add at least 10 more DDs and 5 more CVs. :cap_haloween:

Interestingly I have seen quite a number of random games recently with uneven numbers of DDs. Thought that wasn't possible.

OP knows why this happens, the only cruiser he's ever played is anchorage. He's fully aware of the fact that the only role cruisers play these days is so 457mm/460mm battleships have something to farm devastating strikes on. Deadeye just made it so that cruisers now get devastated in their spawn, nobody plays the class anymore and OP is big sad there's nothing left to devastate.

 

And don't forget that a 'devastating strike' might also facilitate a trip to the premium shop with a happy feeling to spend cash money too. 

 

To the OP, try using WASD and supporting your team against priority targets instead of just shooting the enemy BB's.

I play Agir mainly in rankeds and its no fun to see, that you cannot block any shells from BBs. The good games are when I face other cruisers (okay, usually one cruiser, as almost nobody plays them) or some DDs. Its doable in Agir thanks to hydro.

But usually its bang, bang, go back to port

Because people play deadeye BBs with insane overmatch? 

Yeah wonder why people prefer DDs...

 

Maybe OP should chose a radar cruiser instead? :cap_like:
