So was playing a Omaha today with my friend Rei in Fault Line map and ridiculously saw

this BB Commander heading to the middle of the map.

That doesn't look like the middle part of the map. They were bundled up near their spawn i believe.

And what are we supposed to do??

 

Honestly, taking screenies of play that upsets you and making a thread on it does nothing, except maybe fill some bingo cards.

You are slightly better at BB than me, davud1537 and a lot more experienced with the game. So I do respect your greater understanding. But the slow BBs are much further forward than your faster ship. And they are under heavy air attack from multiple carriers with no visible fighter support. Also only a single cruiser supporting and a CV vulnerable just behind them. I would have thought they had been positioning to make shooting runs at high range IF they saw ships come into range of your team's obvious dominance of control points. AND then the planes arrived and they took varying defensive measures - possibly trying to put bow or stern towards potential torpedo attacks while trying to turn and change speed to confuse bombers. The only visible enemy ship is a BB covering control point A. So the whole game has yet to develop and the BBs are well placed to respond to any concentration of enemy ships when it happens. I think sticking close together is a good idea for BBs particularly in games when the CL and CA race off to do their own thing - leaving BBs with basic hulls and no AA very vulnerable. Hopefully some of the BBs have decent AA and can help protect the others. I am a real big fan of concentrated fire-power. My best games are when the BBs stay together and get some support from smaller ships and then we just shatter the scattered enemy piece-meal. Very satisfying. But, I do understand you are better skilled and have played for longer than me, so I am sure you have good reason to criticise the strategy of others. Please excuse my humble attempt to introduce a differing perspective.

Experience BB player will head to east not to the mid and apparently I told them to go east they all head for mid of course in the end they did not even sunk a single ship!

Experienced battleships will make a tactical decision based on their spawn points, where the enemy is spotted, or how the battle unfolds. For example, on Fault Line, a battleship headed to the middle zone or to the west on a domination match can provide fire support onto bases B and A respectively, but runs the risk of exposing themselves to fire. Considering most destroyers go straight for the bases immediately in a domination match, a nearby battleship can provide cover by discouraging any cruisers from moving in. Most cruisers will typically head to either A or C, so splitting up battleships with escorts can help cover either base, or battleships can stick together with allied cruisers in a deathball and move to one side of the map, achieve local superiority there, and the strike out towards other bases. Whether or not the battleship can sink ships then will then depend on their individual skill and capability, as well as the awareness not to charge too far in front and away from allied support - if allied ships fall back, a smart battleship player will begin a swing around too. 

 

There is no "Experienced battleships will head to the east" - it all depends on how the match unfolds at the start. If everyone goes west or to the middle, a battleship going east is a stupid decision.

I mean BB heading to A not to C all BB player knew if they head to C they will get ambushed by enemy DD so they will go to A but I just don't get it why this team BB really wanna hang out at the B.. [speaking of this I don't see any BB go to B in the first place for my past battle on this map exclude this match].

Sink Iowa, Yamato, with my New Mexico before well IDK maybe you are more experienced than me lol.

 

One or two matches isn't really indicative of player skill or experience. We typically look at average experience per battle and average damage, and perhaps winrate once over 500-1000 battles.

How can you match up with Yamato since she is 4 tier higher than you?

 

And also I've seen someone sunk Iowa with Cleaveland.... by ramming lol.

 

Also can you teach me how you can sink Iowa and Yamato because I can't seem to be able to even fight against North Carolina or Amagi in my Fuso.

So........the TLDR is that a pub player did something you didn't like so we now have a thread about the fact that someone who probably didn't even speak the same language as you didn't listen?
