Ok so this thing remains unchanged from the PTS version of it. Which means there is a high chance that you pick a wrong ship for it.

Whats the wrong ship????????????????????????

The MM will not match your ship against the same class. BB vs DD, DD, vs CL/CA/CV, etc.

Not being the same class may be the right ship if you are lucky.  Imagine going in with a CV against a DD

I figure WG could make things more interesting by not telling which ship you are up against.

I don't get the logic behind this event.

There are ships out there which have massive advantages over other ships.

I mean, the ship types were originally set up to counter other ship types.

How is BB Vs DD fair?

How is anything Vs CV fair?

Whoever has stealth has the huge advantage. Basically this is gambling mode.

Indeed friend, indeed. Honestly, the worst matchups? BB vs CV/DD because a BB cannot outrun/catch either and both can attack the BB with impunity.

In short, BB is the worst ship class to play in this mode. Cruisers with no radar or weak AA are the 2nd worst. The Queue would be full of CVs & DDs.

The caps tick very rapidly, a BB can just sail into the cap and the DD/CV have to get the kill before the caps win the game.  It's not as unbalanced as you say, although obviously there will be significant advantageous/disadvantageous match ups.

But DDs are generally faster than BBs. Any DD can dash into caps faster & use this undisputed advantage to pressure the BB into close-range engagement. CVs on the other hand, would struggle against anything but "average" DDs.

The DD can make it to the cap a bit quicker, but then the BB can just sail straight into it.  The DD then either stays stealthed and gets pushed out of the cap while trying to torp, or they can try and rush, which can be countered by the BB turning away while putting huge damage into the DD.  It seems relatively even to me given a decent player on both sides.

Bb v CV. About as far from fun as you can possibly get.  Being chased around a map and hoping you don't die while the CV just sits back and can never be touched.

Bring the Bismarck with Ramming flag

 

RAM everything, also 5km Hydro is enough to detect DD or Cruiser Torpedo

 

The map ia actually small that i hit island... The map is around 15km lol

 

If you ram another BB it will be draw

I'll give it a shot I guess. I like the concept as something new and different, but obviously share people's concerns that some match ups are just not going to be equal fights.

I hope it will not come down to the best ship, but rather which player understands the strengths of their ship better. I should come figuring out what your strength are in any given pair, and working out how to leverage those strengths while protecting your vulnerabilities. Flamu has some good demo vids up.

That all said, my biggest annoyance is that in a 1 v 1 scenario RPF becomes required. So I'd have to do a captain respec which I'm not convinced is worth my while.
