    CV Rework Discussion

    I think I see a pattern here, they nerf AA ready for the Ark Royal coming out, as soon as sales are done they will boost AA back to stupid levels again..

    Summer Sale: New Offers Every Day!

    Hmmm bit bummed out this has come to a end. No date was really advertised, although it does say 'Each day in July' and last time I checked it's still July? lots of ships I would have bought (Duke of York, Lenin, Massa Cossack) haven't even showed up in the sale..it's still showing in the News reel at the top of the page, but when clicked on, nothing comes up

    Update 0.8.5: Rogue Wave

    I have a real fear that with the AA changes, CVs are going to be totally useless... like no point in even trying to perform an attack on anything. I really do hope to god this has been tested properly, like uptiered CVs trying to attack highter tier ships.. I can see waves of aircraft just melting now, even worse than before

    Future Plans for Aircraft Carriers

    As a CV player this is really starting to bl**dy annoy me... the balance is all over the place.. I play mostly Tier 8 CVs and 99% of the time end up in Tier X battes (where I am the sole Tier 8) I can do some damage, but with CVs like the Shokaku it's impossible to influence the battle. then more damn nerfs... I understand it's hard to strike a balance, but in Tier X with a Tier 8 CV even the DDs are destroying entire airwings before they can get off a single strike. Whats the point? playing CVs is becoming totally pointless. The main role of a CV in tier X is scout. and now you've taken that away. Are you guys totally oblivious to how this game is being played? You can't judge 'fun factor' by looking at stats and numbers on a web sheet.. try playing the games in different tiers, and see just how bl**dy frustrating it is to play as a CV currently.

    Shokaku help.

    Can Anyone please tell me how i'm suppose to be successful with the Tier 8 Shokaku. I'm constantly up tiered in it, and i'm finding it impossible to do any damage to anything, I have the Lexington, and my games vary, some up tiered games I get melted, then some I do pretty well without really doing anything different. In the Shokaku I just can't seem to be effective at all, even attacking relatively weak AA ships I can't get close to them, my planes are just melting, then when I do manage to get on target I'm not causing hardly any damage. The ship just seems completely useless in the current environment. Does anyone have (useful) tips on how to use this CV? or is it just a badly balanced CV?

    Update 0.8.1 - General Feedback

    I think something is terribly broken with the AA at the moment. I’d consider myself a competent CV player, I’ve been playing them quite a lot since the initial rework. I mostly play the Tier 8 Lexington. Today I was playing in the lex and come across a Tier X GK (as I always seem to be uptiered) he was on his own, and I though to myself brilliant, lone BB should be a easy target. Rolled in with my torp planes got one pass off, and as I was boosting away from the GK the entire air wing of torp planes got destroyed before I could leave the AA influence bubble! That’s never happened before when attacking a GK! Let alone a lone ship. I have a 17 point CV captain, I have both the perks that increase aircraft armour and health, as well as all the modules/upgrades for the torp planes. how can it be after making one pass on a BB EVERY aircraft got melted before I could even escape the AA bubble. Mom the way out I was boosting, rolling left and right to avoid the black stuff, but I literally couldn’t do anything to save my planes. i can’t help but feel AA damage calculations have been broken. i also took a dive bomber squadron against a Montana (which I know has really strong AA) but it was towards the end of the game and he was one of the last ships alone. Every aircraft got destroyed before I could even drop a bomb. And that was boosting towards the Montana from the bow. Before I could get to bomb range every aircraft was dead.. if CVs are to be continually uptiered at least balance it so we can take part, not just get trolled by ships even with low AA ratings
