The Role of a Battleship
« on: September 09, 2020, 09:09:22 pm »
The main role of a battleship, as far as battle is concerned, is destroy cruisers.  Yes contesting control points is also a part of your job but fighting is a large part of that.

In order for a battleship to kill a cruiser easily he must have no distractions i.e. other ships.  You should not be engaging in battle with other destroyers or battleships if you can help it.

Long range battles with other battleships are quite common but try not to unless your already spotted.  Once your spotted you'll be fired upon by every ship is in your line of sight.
Even though a destroyer will probably be the first ship you encounter you shouldn't go head to head with one.  Point out the destroyer so that other team members can engage.

It is the battleships main job to kill cruisers to that friendly cruisers can do their job.

Once the destroyers are dead friendly cruisers and battleships can move in more safely to engage other ships
