    Saipan refund - are we being serious?

    The CV is normally unspotted and/or out of range while all surface ships have to risk their HP when spotting and trying to deal damage. The CV only risks his regenerating planes that can cross the entire map in less than a minute. Both classes got a rework with basically the same goals. Both give their players the ability to strike opponents without having to fear direct retaliation which is a basic gameplay element for all other classes of both games. An attack heavily hinders interaction with other surface ships or tanks by spotting and having to angle against torps or knocking out the crew and modules. Carriers turned artillery-based surface warfare into a thing of the past, so maybe they shouldn't be included in a game about artillery-based surface warfare. I wouldn't say they can never be balanced properly but so far WG has shown zero interest in it. Games have rules everyone has to follow to make it work. Allowing one class to break them doesn't make for fun gameplay. The central part here is counterplay. You angle, you return fire, you use your concealment to disengage. None of this works against CVs. You don't even have control over your AA. You just activate it and hope the enemy CV player is dumb enough to fly through the clouds when you play a ship that doesn't have enough continuous damage to repel an attack and there are plenty of this kind. All of my arguments are valid. Nothing I wrote here is untrue. Up to this point no one could explain what CVs bring to the game, how they enrich the experience of playing. The gameplay in a battle with CVs is absolute garbage.

    No. Both can attack you all the time while you can retaliate only sometimes. They take up the same gameplay niche. Both are alien to the specific setup of mechanics in their games. They are basically the same: an unfun and unneeded addition to an otherwise good game.

    Umm, no. And again no arguments from you. What a surprise.

    Yeah, who needs arguments anyway. WoT actually has a class of tanks that are similar to CVs in WoWs except they need the spotting of their teamates instead of being able to produce their own spotting. And implying the CV rework is the opposite of dumbing the game down is by far the most laughable statement I've read so far. I mean the new CVs have automated consumables, DoT was practically removed for them and flooding got nerfed to kingdom come.

    No, it's not and everyone can see it. The gameplay and the meta has changed completely and not for the better. The CV rework is a trainwreck.

    Well, a class that can spot anything, anywhere, anytime without putting the ship at risk shouldn't be also a good damage farmer. It breaks the balance. This also works the other way round.

    As if this made a difference...

    LOL, really? Ramming a rocket fighter squad down the middle and spotting the entire enemy team within the first minute is balanced in a game where half the ship classes rely heavily on concealment?

    The funny thing is, we will get free respecs once the refund period ends. It's really a joke.

    Giulio Cesare stays as it is + balance of other premiums

    *cough* Tier 5 Ranked *cough*

    No, that's the only thing testing didn't show. WG didn't even try to rebalance GC on tier 5. Of course people have more issues with uptiering their premium ship than rebalancing it. Oh, so making statements that imply you won't nerf premium ships is different than outright stating you won't nerf premium ships? Excellent hairsplitting right there.

    Why Belfast is needed in game

    I could say the same about hightier BB players and midtier IJN DDs and guess what happened to IJN DDs... yeah, exactly. Also I'm not going to blame average DD players for dying early in an extremely hostile meta saturated with radar cruisers or even double CVs. There's only so much you can do with no armor and 20k HP and I don't think I have ever read something along the lines of 'Kurfürst tank or report' in chat.

    Is there going to be another set of directives.

    You still need to buy some premium containers for the Florins.
