When faced with overwhelming opposition, your best tactic is to execute a rear guard action to harass and delay the enemy while the rest of the fleet secures the victory. If their effort is too slow or unsuccessful, be prepared to risk it all for victory. This was the sort of battle I faced on the Two Brothers map at the end of February. Myself, another Japanese destroyer and two cruisers attempted to capture point D, but came up against an enemy fleet of three destroyers, two cruisers and two North Carolina class battleships. We sank their three destroyers at the cost of one of ours and a Cleveland cruiser. Outgunned, we had no choice but to fall back and fight a rear guard action, while hoping the rest of the team had better success.
