Since I have not played Killer Whale in months, how long have the spawn position changed or has it just been this patch. The new spawn position is much wider back for some ships.

I noticed it before the patch.

Freaked me out!

A potential problem when it's a slow USN BB at the back as some of them don't arrive in time to contribute much, and unfortunately it's encouraging some who shouldn't to toodle off to the North by their lonely selves. Otherwise: it lets those of us up front get more shots in at the early forts /winning

For at least the past rotation.

And it’s annoying AF. And unfair, and it must be a bug.

It puts certain players at a disadvantage to start with, especially those in slower ships.

My main issue is was this change ever documented? Or has wg started to secretly change things and kill their non-existent reputation?

It is a side effect of that T5-6 vs T7-8 game mode we had a while back. One of the maps used in that mode was Killer Whale and the spawns for that map are as they are now.

I am guessing that WG changed the spawns for that mode and never changed it back after that event. Killer Whale's spawns have been like that ever since.

And they haven’t fixed it because they really don’t care about operations beyond making sure they don’t break the economy...

As per everyone, last patch.

CV and 2 BB will be positioned way back.

No. No documentation.

Remember, they want to nerf "fun".

Asymmetric Battle?

 

It's like that unintended stealth CV update back in patch 0.9.9.

WG was testing something, but forgot to rollback their work-in-progress test, and unintentionally got implemented in the live server.

 

Lately WG's quality control is on a 90° crash dive trajectory (it's not like they have good quality control ever since 2019), but it is happening a lot to a point that it is an embarrassment to the profession.
