I say this mode needs a rework because it is either a gladiator-style mode for DDs (with the other classes being the spectators) or the team that manages to get the cap will be able to reduce the time & effort needed to win more significantly than the other modes.

Its only so because of the unwillingness of all the guns to actually push in formation with the light force and actuallu fight a battle. Just all wanting to sit outside , sit back behind cover and snipe / farm damage & kill; in short no difference than their equal selfish exhibition in Domination only worse since now there is basically a single Area only

This is another case of the player base needing reworking, not the game. And this is Asian server no less.

 

I've been in many Epicenter battles and the team that dares to enter the cap (better if BBs go in) is usually the one that wins.

Qui audet adipiscitur

The mode is designed so that those who stay far away will influence little to naught in the battle, even more so in maps with many mountains in the Epicenter zone. Either guns or torps, the terrain will screw you over.

 

If all you want is profit, you shouldn't care about winning or losing.

Ergo, that is why I am in the "penalise the long ranger snipers, crank up the CQC rewards" camp.

We do not need more ships that have obsencely long range accuracy.

Had a match once with two enemy Shimas, they thought they're sneaky so they just went left and right without contesting the circles. Our DDs just cap it all and won the game without anyone dying. It felt like a lose.

I actually love epicenter on Island of Ice map, better even if there is a snow storm. Not just DDs, but all must push into the cap and support each other. Only one class of ship in it is not enough to win the match. 

Very often in GK I will try to make my way into the epicentre, usually it is a lot of fun and battle result is good.

Well it's Salem. I got about 135k in profit. I had no premium consumables so the entire service cost was 35k only, and no credit multipliers either.

Yeah they are the reasons I avoid playing non premium high tiers.

This one actually had snowstorm which dropped my concealment to enough to only let the enemy CV spotted me. But I failed to get my nose out enough to do ship damage, hence it was flat 0.

Yeah the cap points can rack up ridiculously fast on Epicentre.

So if you get a potato team that refuses to contest the caps, your team will lose, very fast.

Also that afk Izumo and enemy Jean Bart. :cap_wander_2:

This mode is won solely by aggressive play at the start of then constant support fire until it is over.

 

Can you see the problem?

I think epicentre is a good mode. Because it is basically "Who dares, wins". You want to win? You create the win, not get it handed to you on a silver platter. Unfortunately this happens at times when the other team gifts you this silver platter and the Crown Jewels; conversely, there are times your team sells themselves on the slave market to pay for the restitutions.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the mode.

and that statement applied equally to enemy ships ... they are easily destroyed only because they all aim to fight alone. Its time and time proven formation up a group of ships can mutually support each other and survive and be able to do some real damage to the other side , Epic Center happen to be one mode that amplify this requirement. And also amplify the disadvantage of not doing so
