DD population boom and CV population shrunk...

lately, when I'm play (occasionally tier 6-7) I notice major change.

number of DD in each match greatly increase, almost never fewer than 4-5 DD per team per match

while I almost never see CV at all.

 

why is that?

 

it's not that I love CV or anything, I secretly happy though, since I can enjoy exchange fire with enemy ship without worrying TP coming and torp me. and can drive DD freely without plane to keep spot me.

 

but.... you know, like.................. something missing. I can't put it into a word... just missing...

same reason with RTS and simulator game are not popular for now.  (many people don't like to use their brain)

 

in previous patch CV is very easy to play. but now you need more brain  to control CV.

I still regularly meet CVs, but yes, the population of CV players has shrunk.

 

As for why... same reason why the population of SPG players in WoT shrunk after 0.8.6.

The bad players that never knew anything aside from sitting at the corner of the map had two options:

1.) Learn to play properly

2.) Quit and play a different type of vehicle

 

Take an educated guess which one was their final decision...

Absolutely agree, compared to CBT days there are less CV's and I somewhat miss the days where as a USN CA captain I actually had to put effort into escorting Capital ships like the Carriers and Battleships from wave after wave of air attack. Now days I don't really bother, not that I dislike it, but there definitely is something missing.

 

Bad players or not, it kinda takes the diversity out of the game and makes USN CA's more redundant, given their lack of torpedoes.

 

But for some odd reason, I still like my Pensacola more than my Myoko, odd but I guess they have some appeal lol

nerf bats

 

increased time for TB reload

planes easily killed with AA

wide spread of torps

short range torps

wide dispersion for DB

Ineffective bombs on DB even if you are a USN

 

Now thats a good reason to not suffer for people who like to shoot

At the start of the game DDs population also at the age of extinction :D:D:D

 

Wherever you go there will be a planes tracking you, and obviously there nothing you can do + CVs in high tier tend to just kill every DDs at the beginning of the match which cause so much rage on DDs player that why no one play it.

But after all the CVs nerf (to the point of unplayable) so many CVs player had stop using it.

 

as the iChase say it in this vids (which no one will ever watch because its too long lol)

It's not that CV had low population, but like me, I had 8 ship (USN & IJN class) to be leveling. so it's 2 CV : 6 Ship of my play time.

You know what it means?... It means that WG is gonna nerf destroyers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

good, be nice not to see over 1/2 of both teams being sailed by DDs because they're so OP (mainly the JPs, stupid long range).

Why are there so many DD captains?  because Most WOWS players DO NOT KNOW HOW TO PLAY AS A TEAM.  DD Captains Capitalize on this inherent "Weak Link" in the enemy Team.

 

Battleships and Carriers are the PRIME TARGETS, Its so easy to spot and Overwhelm most DD if friendly DD and CL/CAs worked as the team did their jobs to protect their capital ships.     Its just so easy to punch through enemy lines if no one is Guarding.

I don't mind there being lots of destroyers, gives me more of them to sink when I'm sailing a DD hunting ship. Plus torpedoes only really are a problem if they get really close or you're not paying attention.

At the moment the game is skewed towards DD's/ With the capture xp, and the changes to large ship turning last patch, dd's really easy mode now (particularly ijn stealth torps), so you get a large group of players flocking to it.

Add to that the way cv has been first nerfed and then made really not that much fun to play (particularly compared to the afore mentioned dd's), and this makes DD's even easier to play as they don't have planes out spotting them as the cv's are missing (not to mention it lets the horrid bb play of angle in, stop and full reverse that seems to be the norm now that really makes me want to throw something with how stupid it is), dd's are the place to be atm (least till they nerf them too at some stage).

One-hundred percent spot on.

Teamwork in this game is almost non-existent and the language barrier emphasises that fact.

The only teamwork that I have been part of that actually worked was when we formed a division prior to the battle commencing.

Attempting to team up with non-English speakers is virtually impossible.

It never will be teamwork when the game reward system rewards every man for himself. I recently spent 6 days in a row winning 6 battles and losing 70. My WR dropped 2%, and I'm over 1k battles, which means getting that 2% back, is a LOT of wins...

 I always looking forward to Div with you kul :D:D:D

 

But i have to say i i never lose faith in the team, as i mentioned before, In my opinion teamwork is not doing what someone say but to act accordingly and help accomplish their objective as best as we can (without getting you self kill lol) as long as everyone know what they doing and covering each other thats good enough for me :great:

Without CVs you see a lot of silly tactics like parking still behind islands or the middle of the ocean. If a CV was around that makes you super easy to torp or even bomb :P

 

Lack of CVs makes everyone a worse player sadly.

in early patch, I often see CV earn top rank of team result and nearly no one can steal their position away, I even see some CV wipe out 7 ship, more than half of enemy team.

 

but these day, they hopping around middle to bottom rank...
