1st BB overpop, Now DD infestation?

Well for a while we had the BB overpopulation now it seems we have a new problem of DD infestation. Unfortunately it seems that the new DD captains don't have much of a clue. Firing from second row if not more, smoking up at the 1st sign of an enemy and hiding leaving everyone blind because no one is spotting. 5 BB's and 5 dd's per game seems to be the norm at the moment. If you have a cv as well that's 1 slot spare for a cruiser. 1?

 

3-4 weeks ago I was doing well 100k +games were more and more frequent for me and it felt good because I was making some headway and win rate was actually up because I was doing thing right for a change.

But NO. WG seems to have other ideas. WHY is it that every time you start doing well its Miraculously followed by a streak of absolute inexplicable EDIT that undoes all your hard work to improve leaving you deflated and asking your self why do you bother?:Smile_teethhappy:

1 step forward 2 steps back etc. The last  week I have been torped nearly every game. Torps coming out of nowhere, everywhere?!!

Cruisers are the minority in this game now. But they play such a pivotal role in keeping the game balanced yet WG seem to have overlooked this.:Smile_amazed:

It feels like the game has shifted/changed once more...so time to adapt and overcome once again guys ?!!

Anyone else experiencing similar? Am I alone in my analytical theory?

Personally I think that if WG pushed cruisers a bit more and started doing some tasks /competitions for that Line this game might balance its self out on its own.:Smile_sceptic:

When you are torped nearly every game, you are doing wrong...

Looks like your Anti-DD play needs much improvement.

 

And no, we do not have a DD infestation. Just ONE Tier VI DD that gets played a bit more.

I have no idea what you do different.

Maybe you have difficulty keeping track of more than two DDs.

As a CA/DD  main i think you can take off your tin foil hat.

 

Maybe their is a dayli quest that need ppl to torp stuff so you will have more potatoes dd for a couple of days.

 

Dont neglect the weekend effect, i dont have play yet today cause i was working but i don't even know if i want to play with the crowd of the week end

Hm. My games today were:

 

Yamato - 160k

Shima - 190k

Gearing - 98k

Kurfürst - 50ish k

 

i Call working as intended :Smile_playing:.

looks like you stole my dmg >.>

Havent been able to break 100k once today with Monti or Duki... Either I got straddles and overpens, or the team melted before I could get there (think highest was about 92...)

and ofc the dying to the most derpy things; enemy DD sailing around the entire map only to torp me from the side while I'm reversing, CV pushing a strike through god knows how much AA only to detonate me :Smile_amazed:

Interesting reading . Thank you for that @ColonelPete but i would like to see if the % of DD players has increased recently. Where could I find such info to support my theory? :cap_hmm:

Seems I have been v. unlucky this past week then. Looks like WG levelling factor has kicked in.:Smile_sceptic:

You're not alone. Currently leveling my Fushun and I see battles with 5 DDs on each side all the time. Actually it's even worse because one side tends to have DD dominance, so lots of 4 vs. 5 DD games.

 

The DDs I see tend to yolo very hard, which makes games unpredictable and random. In other words, they're harder to carry. Other ships don't back up DDs, so yeah. It's not great.

Proportion of ships in game by class, w/e 17/03/2018:

 

Tier BB CA DD CV
7 49.31% 27.27% 19.16% 4.26%
8 57.30% 24.36% 15.84% 2.51%
9 45.35% 27.53% 25.61% 1.51%
10 31.92% 34.37% 31.93% 1.78%

 

So the least played class at nearly every tier, god alone knows where these 5 DD every game are coming from.

you have started playing more in high tiers? 525/1524 is since ages.

but if you sacrifice 2 virgins you may get in to 534 o_0

 

@Capra76 that stats are bugged because potatoDDs most of the time play for 20mins no matter that they are chasing some Iowa to torp her from behind lol. meanwhile CAs get rekt and those players spam more battles. That is how u get charts like that

So how do all the border-surfing BB fit into that equation?

 

Also in my experience the potato DD usually get themselves killed in the first 5 minutes of the battle, so the exact opposite of what you claim.

It works the same way they spend more time in battle and spam less battles no matter that thei r population is little higher than DDs

lol 57.30%  T8 bbs

if that chart was correct you would see something like 28% CAs  at TX that % says that most of the battles CAs are more than any other class in that battles lol

because 34% is 4+ lol

and now one question how many TX battles you have participated in to with 4 or less BBs per side lol

and btw

... that chart is per ship tier you dont have battles with ships only by same tier, well or they are very very few. i cant remember last time when i was in bT12 Battle

no your wrong xD

potato DD go to the border and starts "advanced flanking maneuver"

pototoDD never contest xD he/she spams 10km torps on target that is @ 11km(9-12 you know what i mean) and is moving away.....

potatoDD never EVER gets in less than (his max torp range minus 100metters) only if he is caught offguard or blocked by island

Chart is as per MapleSyrup data.

 

Remember, T10 battles include ships from T8/9, the reason that T10 CA feel rarer than they are is because of the hugh BB overpopulation at the lower tiers, so a typical t10 battle might look like:

  • 2 x T10 BB;
  • 2 x T10 CA;
  • 2 x T10 DD;

which is in line with the proportions mentioned above, but then:

  • 3 x T8/9 BB;
  • 3 more ships scraped together from wherever;

which gives you the obligatory 5 BB every battle.

5 DDs per side are painful for various classes in this order:

DD>BB>cruiser>CV

 

DDs mostly spoil each other's fun. Then they make life of BBs harder. Only CVs are less vulnerable than cruisers. And, of course, we're assuming here that we're not talking Radar cruisers or other such beasts that are the scourge of DDs, not the other way around.

Huh? They are Radar cruisers, you know. Rather than inconvenienced by 5 DD per side, they actually feast on such MM since they are pretty much guaranteed to an occasion to make their Radar useful (low-DD games don't give that guarantee, if you end up with 1v1 DD situation, a Radar cruiser has a good chance of never having the enemy DD in Radar range for the whole match just by picking the "wrong" flank).

Quite possible but then you see people smoking up and not spotting sitting in their own smoke and getting torped. Launching torps from like 3rd row etc .

You do know that high DD games are the worst for the Destroyers themselves and not the precious BB players?

 

As it means far more cap and spotting competition.

 

Still, if you don't like the way a class is played by others then maybe you should play that class and be a better example?

 

Cruisers should be promoted more yes as they're the hardest class to play arguably. You n often need to try a lot harder in a Cruiser to do as well as in the other classes.
