World of Battleships?

When I was last here, about a year go, the game was going towards "world of battleships" stage with the amount of nerfs anti-BB received. But it wasn't completely there yet.

So here I am sitting and wondering what change they did within about a year that caused such high influx of battleship players in queues. Every battle it's 5 Battleships at least,less cruisers than 5 and 1-3 destroyers here and there.

 

Are they interested in changing the system or should I abandon my cruisers and go for a battleship? Because currently I'm not enjoying my time in my cruisers.

When everyone play battleboats, no cruiser or DD whine can be heard:Smile_bajan2:

They have changed smoke so now battleships are even mightier than before ...

 

... and they just released FreeXP Musashi that basically is a Yamato with bad AA

 

"One BB to rule them all and in the water bind them" ... and not even fire will hurt this pet of Sauron ;-)

Actually they all burn quite nicely.

Besides, smoke changes means they have a hard time hiding themselves now.

Just type in google "world of Warships" and read the full text on the Hyperlink.

Then you know how much they do to prevent overpopulation of BBs....

Inb4 Wilka a forummember sees this and rushes in to defend:

Battleships got some nice treats lately. For example Submerged Citadels or with Turtlebackarmour making them practically impossible to citadel (except IJN BBs because reasons) or the buff to Tirpitz lately for their secoundaries to Bismarck levels, or the powercreep from the recently added RN BBs. Following that trend with the citadells on the new coming french BBs i guess it is safe to say the situation won't change much anytime soon™.

 

So you either join them (too boring for me), or you are one of those diehard cruiser/DD- players that stand  against to this.

 

Edit: Damn too late!

Yes and then they repair 100% of the damage if they aren't too bad to use the damage control + repair and get 3/4 permanent fires....

 

Yes same with the cruisers that don't actualy need smoke like the RN CLs (careful! irony) and without changing much for the DDs.....

BBs can still use smoke to turn and they still survive WAAAY more than any other class.......

Or to say it in the style of a certain player from the forums: If it is a nerf to everyone, it ain't a nerf for BBs. :Smile-_tongue:

Haw been keeping track on this game  for around two years since playing WoT. It's indeed the case. Now it's the powercreep mutation phase where different nations get cross role specific module and consumable acces. In time all ships will be capable of smoke, radar and regeneration. The only distinction is canon calibre and armouring and its up to prefrence if someone wants to deal with torpedo lethality or relax in BB's with a beer in one hand.

 

For a realy balanced BB play they should nerf BB gun reload even more and make secondaries a hazzard for any DD daring to overstay it's vellcome or make them only capable to scout for themselves and leave anything else as it is. For now hight tier BB's are the most lethal just because they get good acuracity and kill power even if they hug map borders (high tier).

Im just wondering... why dont they actually finish the transformation into World of Battleships for those folks and give us World of RestOfTheShips... or at least world of warships from CBT, improved a bit.

Win win... BBabies no longer have anything to whine about, no trops, cvs, smokes, he spam cruisers... and rest of us can have fun game we can enjoy.

 

Come on WG, make it happen!

Fire is merely a distraction, if countered correctly without panic that is ... I fear a rapid rain of AP fram a cruiser way more in my BB than a couple of fires ...

Easy too do to.

 

Add a new rule set to the MM, build balanced matches with BB, CA/CL/DD & CV(if available), then take the rest of the BB queue thats left and throw them into a 12 vs 12 BB dreadnaught battle mode. .

That wouldnt really work because CBT was completely different game (much better one) and balance between classes was much better (tho far from perfect). 

In current version of the game, even with balanced numbers of classes, CAs and such would still stay back even if there are only 2-3 BBs. Wouldnt change much. Back then if you were further than 10km from enemies in your Zao or shooting HE at all, you were doing it wrong.

Back then CAs werent scared pushing caps or smokes, and were actually playing between DDs and BBs, unlike now where they sit far back or behind island with radar or something.

 

Funny thought, if they went back to that, everything would play exactly as it should, and half of stuff they added to combat their mistakes wouldnt be needed (radar, longer ranges on CAs, improved HE for CAs etc).

But alas... "Some CAs captains were actively picking fights with BBs, and we cannot allow that."... actual thing dev said when explaining changes in 0.3.1.4 update. The day WG crippled WoWs and sentenced it to limp barely alive ever since.

You're giving me nostalgia... STAHP

 

How did they have such good game in CBT and screw it up this much? Honestly I was surprised when I first started wows after the horrors of wot balancing team that the game was fun in all classes.

Seeing you specialise in the Minekaze, alot of BB's in a game should be just up your street.

Specialize in minekaze? I haven't played minekaze for about 2 years. I had hatsuharu last. Then they divided the DDs and I have no idea if I should get back to IJNDDs or not.

Sadly, even though i barely played afterwards and were on hold for a long time, im still waiting and hoping that they will get those times back. Only reason i keep logging in and checking forums and keep game updated is because it was so good back then, that i really want it back... hope dies last i guess :(

You could(and should) play the missions. At least there is no such problem there and you can earn more exp in missions than PvP

Even if I would have forgotten how to use a keyboard or even a computer, 17 to 1 battleship ratio of queue wouldn't be my fault, would it?
