Looks pretty devestating. Do you think in the hands of expert Carrier players, manual drops might be OP?

 

Note: I'm not flaming Carriers as a class just considering pros and cons for balance. Thanks. +1 for the Vid.

No, just like how expert BB players can easily wipe the map of other ships. CV play needs a skill determining element and manual is pretty much it

Nice video. One trick I have seen CV's do is using their 2 TB's to approach a fast and agile target from two perpendicular directions (eg. from north and from west). Even if the ship spots the torpedo squadrons and starts turning his ship to one of them, he is broadside to the other. There is literally nothing any ship can do to avoid two coordinated torpedo squadrons coming from 2 directions. Like the video showed, the higher tier cruiser AA ability merely delays the attack a little when the carrier can simply pull the planes to safety for 30 secs and come back when it's on a 2 min cooldown. I suspect once people learn how to play carriers effectively their (imo already apparent) OPness comes to light.

Subbed, nice video's thx really appreciate them :medal:

"First they nerfed the carriers and I didn't speak out because I didn't play carriers.                                    Then they nerfed the torpedoes and I didn't speak out because I didn't play IJN DDs.

Then they nerfed cruiser HE and I didn't speak out because I didn't spam HE.                                             Then they nerved concealment on every class except BB's, and I didn't speak out because I didn't have common sense

Then the BBabies came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me."
