  1. whatever, dude. i won't be dragged in another endless discussion, now that CV fans are in i leave you guys having fun. as always.
  2. all you said is true. however, a competent CV player can (and very often will) win the game alone.
  3. you have definitely a point. i'd ban CVs from every kind of battle, but surely below tier 6 there's no reason to keep them besides ruining the game for everyone else. on the plus side, anyway, low tier CVs are meat against DDs and most tier 3-5 battles are full of them P.S. just lose any hope that mid to high tier AA is worth anything against carriers. there will always be 4 or 5 planes able to drop on you, even if you kill half the squadron with the best AA known to man. plus, AA range has been nerfed to plain uselesness and grouping ships doesn't really solve the problem. conventional sea battles were a memory of the past around 1941-42 because of carriers. you can't expect a game about sea battles to be any different.

    Chat ban system needs fixing. Fast.

    well, apparently noone gave a flying f**k about the ticket i sent to player support. and sure as hell i didn't deserve 15 days of chat ban for telling a c*nt to stop being a c*nt. this crusade against swear words is ridiculous, but apparently it's all in the spirit of the times. i suppose the only word safe enough to be used in the in-game chat is POI

    Chat ban system needs fixing. Fast.

    it's getting ridiculous. i started playing again 15-20 days ago after months away, and got almost immediately chat banned for 11 days. some very special person spent a whole game constantly insulting me for reasons i can't even remember and i simply cantacted him after the battle and told him to find a better way to vent his personal frustrations and deficiencies in life than trolling a perfect stranger in an online game. in sarcastic terms, of course. but i'm absolutely sure i never insulted him openly. dunno, maybe i told him that he probably never got laid very often - using the horrific and tremendous F word (GOD FORBID!!! HELP OUR SOULS!!!). now i'm banned again, for 15 days. some very special kid took a personal grudge against me and my kitakaze (a ship i'm utter shyte with, by the way) because i was waiting for our spotter to go ahead before suiciding against 3 DDs all able to outspot me and 2 radar ships. i told him precisely what i just wrote, and he hit me with 2 full HE broadsides as a reply. then i quite humanly told him to "just stop it, you CU... (OH MY GOODNESS, THAT SCARY AND UTTERLY DISGUSTING WORD FOR FEMALE GENITALIA!!! MY SOUL WILL BURN IN HELL UNTIL THE SUNS SHUT DOWN AND THE HEAVENS TURN INTO A DEAD AND ENDLESS SEA OF ICE!!!) 15 fu**in days. is it just me or the system has become a bit overreacting to a couple of specific words totally ignoring the context they were used into? i wouldn't be surprised AT ALL to discover that the aforementioned very special child received no disciplinary measure at all, except for a couple of games in pink. the first time i sent a ticket, and a bot told me that the procedure is automated and can't be appealed. so i won't bother this time, but what the f**k?

    CV Rework Discussion

    of course. BUT, if you look a bit closer at those pics, playing the FDG you were never attacked. (1 downed plane, 0 damage from bombs, rockets or torps). playing the kagero you probably killed those 6 planes while in smoke (54 main battery hits mean quite a long time sitting in smoke for a kagero...). and was probably never really focused on. good games happen anytime (i'm not talking about your performance, i mean that those CVs didn't do much to hinder it)
  7. you didn't play it above BR 2, i guess...

    CV Rework Discussion

    a lone BB vs a DD is doomed. a VERY good BB player can lure a DD into useless launches, and bait it to get too close for comfort,. but basically DDs are the natural counter to BBs, so it's no big surprise. the problem is, CVs have no counter and can disrupt the gameplay for every other class, so it's not really appropriate to compare them to anything else in the game. i still have to see a carrier losing to anything in 1 vs 1

    CV Rework Discussion

    1) the old CVs could probably make more damage (they could oneshot other ships, now they can't), but their planes were much more vulnerable to AA, hence they had to plan their attacks more wisely. now a carrier can simply send waves after waves of planes at a single ship until it sinks. rinse and repeat. 2) CVs were not popular because they were boring to play, certainly not because they were UP. the complete CV rework maybe made them more fun (but i'm pretty sure that many people preferred the old RTS based gameplay over the current semi-controllable plane game), but the only way they could implement the current single squadron controls was to make each squadron A LOT more powerful than before the rework. thus breaking the already fragile balance between ships and carriers. now CVs are TOO popular, and yes, it's working exctly as intended, but trying to save a class that shouldn't have been put in the game in the first place has been a HUGE mistake. 3) well, i'm pretty sure i can remember all kinds of complaints when DDs could perform stealth fire and dedicated gunships could be built up to be a constant pain in the arse of everyone else. still it was much more difficult than simply sending wave after wave from 30 km - but maybe i'm wrong.

    anyone else NOT playing anymore thanks to carriers?

    IF YOU HAVE ISSUES READING LOWER CASE LETTERS I CAN USE CAPS WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU. that's never, anyway. as i said, i can't be bothered to make some random guy on the internet feel important. but if it can make you feel better i'll say it: you win. it's no match and i wield. NOW CAN YOU PLEASE GO BEING BRILLIANT SOMEWHERE ELSE?

    not at all. and i didn't stop. i'm just about to. by the way i'm probably old enough to be your uncle, if not your father - so spare me the son thing.

    i appreciate the change of tone (i really do, mate. thanks), and all those amazing calculations, but i'm still not very sure about what's your point in the end. some dude came here with a trite L2P argument, and i simply made him notice that apparently he didn't appreciate the rework as much as he'd like us to believe. that's all.

    i specifically mentioned tier 7 CVs because that's what that guy played most. i'm really sorry if i can' expresso meselfo in gud enoff ingles, but if that guy played 1500 battles with his tier 7 CVs it's a fact i can't change to make your math easier. i won't lower myself to your level of communication because i just won't bother. go being toxic anywhere else, son. i opened this thread to ask for opinions, not to engage in a sterile exchange of insults with guys like you and the other couple of heroes here. just go on, please. do everyone a favour.

    to CVs it may be. infact i was speaking of DDs in cap zones (DUH!) and of the incompatibility of A) forming a blob to avoid planes and B) playing aggressively

    anyone else NOT playing anymore thanks to carriers?

    well, that nothing made me lose enough HPs and worse of all, turned me into a sitting duck. the point is not wether i played that one in the best possible way or not. it's wether a tier 8 CV should be supposed to affect that much a tier 10 game or not.
