DDs need better match making at high tiers

This happens all the time it seems. My team has two DDs (a Shimakaze, and me in a Tashkent), the other side has three DDs (Gearing, and two Yugumos). Guess who wins?

 

This happens so often that I really think Russian DDs at high tiers need to have different match-making status so, for example, if there is an odd number of DDs in the queue, the Tashkent is always on the team with the extra DD (it's basically a CA anyway). I've been in battles where it's been two Tashkents versus three Fletchers. Guess who wins that?

 

Maybe it's just the Easter saltly losing streak getting to me . . .

Limiting the DD is not an option for the dev.

I suggesting we do the mirroring of DD that is similar to rank battles, but there will be consequences like the following MM:

- 2 SMKZ vs 2 Gearing

- 2 RU DD vs 2 Gearing

- 2 RU DD vs 2 SMKZ

 

In other words, chances is that one team will be disadvantage because of the certain line-up mentioned above.

Well this should be the reason, you did not laid enough curse to your opponents, will you feel like not typing about it when 3DDs are on your side?

Touché

 

It's not so much the numbers, I just feel that Tashkent can't counter other DDs well - it has a different role (burning BBs, escorting other DDs etc.) - and matching it against Yugumo, Fletcher, or Z-46 leads to some really bad match making results. 

 

But it's ok. Six losses in a row will do that . . .

Imho... 2 DDs vs 3DD is a regular thing. Many times I encounter this aswell.. And having more DDs does not guarantee a win.

 

Its all about playing your cards right as a team.

Jokes and sarcasms aside.

 

I had many games that team got more DDs loses against team that has less DDs (from tier 2 - 10), its all about how your team prioritise targets.

 

And there are enough or even too many ways to counter DDs nowadays, that a battle won't be decided by numbers of DD itself.

 

P.S. I had a 12 lost in a row before I got my first win, talking about being cursed by MM and RNG.

Gotta agree with this but I don't think WG will implement a special MM that distinguishes between Russian DD and other nations' DD. I'd support a MM that makes sure both teams have an equal number of DD instead.

+/-1 different in ship class is meant to MM have an easier time amassing a team and so that we font have to w8 too long to get a match. Problem is not mm to me , problem lies in meta favoring certain ship.

If you ask me a tomato dd player , i hate VMF dd , they have freaking a lot of health so trading dpm in my benson seems stupid even when the gun reloads very fast. I would have to avoid gun duels with them even when i can see them 1st. US dd impressive RoF are not so impressive when you cant hit pass 7km i guess

This is normal. Unless if you get 3 fletchers with no division. (I did get it. And 2 gearings no div) And your side got ijn dds. Haha
