Attached are the usual MM humor images. But ..

 

I might be delusional, but after a serious testing (and couple of bottles of rum) I made an observation: It's much harder to play save-a-star, since game mechanics and apparently scoring system has changed; you actually need to have an impact on the battle  in order to score well. Kill stealing, border hugging and german sniper BB meta don't work too well anymore.

 

If this is what WG has been working on, its a +1. If this balance happened by accident, good for us :Smile_bajan2:. If its just rum talking, need to get some more.

 

I'm not even going to go into the subject yolongs, but seems very strong. gg.

What League are those screenshots at?

 

I don't actually think Lo Yang is the super weapon like what people are making it out to be. 

 

You can simply avoid the Hydro if you're not a DD smoke camper. 

 

The poor team play and star saving will get those players nowhere. You have to get out there and win to make progress. 

 

Too early for me to comment on this season's meta.

They are from R5 - R4. These matches don't happen very often, there even were some matches with 4 BBs and 0 DDs. I was only CA in those matches playing Mogami. Every other CA was ofc. Chapayev or New Orleans. Had great fun, even if you felt lika rabbit against a pack of wolves xD.

One game ranked is already enough for me... Was hotspot 4 BBs / 3 Cruiser. We capped A (i got single cap because my team was too slow LOL), and the enemy lemminged from B through the islands to A. Except one Takao who wanted to go to C, as did i. We spotted, he chickened away and run. I capped C.. thats where the problem started. Mogami followed me all the way 3~km behind me. Behind him a Bismarck. Our other 4 ships stayed in A. I capped C, went through middle, enemy Takao came back, took some shots at him (my teammates didnt hit ofc...) decided its not worth so i turned in and started shooting the lemmings between A/B. They roflstomped their way through, and 1 by 1 our BBs decided to go like pigs to the slaughter... achieving nothing... well not true. They blocked me torping the enemies, till i was finaly spotted and ofc the enemy BBS went like *OH crap TAKAO IS THERE; HE MUST HAVE TORPED *EVADE**... At that time we had ALL 3 CAPS! Our Hipper and Mogami still chasing the enemy Takao till nowhere, dieing to him at some point lol....

Last one standing, we had like 860 points but they took A... then B... then i died because it was over anyway.

Told my BBs how stupid they were, answer was: Our other cruisers didnt help (excluded me thus) :cap_haloween:

you observe the queue when there is lots of DDs and 1-2 BBs u bring Radarburgh and start colecting tears 

if there is lots of CAs and a CV Kidd

atm ull have to w8 meta to change if u want to bring Kagero in Premier or u should be insane good in that "thing"

btw i rankedout but still no update on forumsig

@DFens_666 in that bracket there is almost no braincells left will suggest u to push for premier before and in premier to become unplayable

OMG i hate it when they do that crap!

 

Chasing one ship all over the map for ages instead of helping win the game! Especially when i see BBs chasing one freaking cruiser (who is usually faster and more nimble then they are) all over the map while the rest of us get slaughtered. 

 

Its almost as bad as the camping sniper BBs.

Agree again :). Feels a little bit better so far then the last season. I can actually make a play and get rewarded. *knock on wood*

Had a Tirpitz and Amagi hunting the enemy CV in the spawn (ofc he was on the other side of the map by then). While I was fightining with 1 DD against 2 DDs and Edinburgh. Meanwhile, those 2 BBs cry, spam chat and everything "NEED AA. STUPID CRUISERS. STUPID DDs. STUPID CV SPOT THE CV). The best part: I radared Edinburgh, while he was sitting still in his smoke - BOTH BBs did hold their fire, saving it for the CV (!!!!). They litterally had a broadside Edinburgh to shoot on ~15 km. In the end: CV farmed them both. what else is new? Its just another ranked season. :Smile_facepalm:

I think it’s clearly more of a DD meta than in the previous two, tier 7 and 6 seasons.
