    Alpha players

    I was a beta tester and got this through being in a clan in wot where one of our members was a alpha tester and he got some invite codes to hand out

    Albemarle - worst ship in the game? advice needed.

    my view is at tier 8 mm she is quite nice but certainly not the best tier 8 cruiser but certainly usable tier 9 gets to be a pain due to the damn silly short range she has and the tier 9 battle cruisers just obliterate it for fun the same as the bbs do and all from distance where you cant even engage them tier 10 and its god awful useless ship as enemy just sit back anyway and your short range will get you killed fast or have a slow boring game doing virtually nothing sitting behind islands or staying too far back waiting for the spotter plane consumable again and again she does have a very good heal and the guns are accurate enough to get good hits and the fires seem to easily be set but for a tier 8 she just does not stand up to being viable and once I have completed it she is gonna sit for good as a rust bucket

    Im really over shock now of CV controls beta tester here

    what wows is now over 8 years old damn where did my life go as for cvs I and others like them while others hate them and its best to think of cvs as marmite some love it others hate it the controls are tbh a damn lot easier then the rts but the ship control is god awful so good and bad on both sides cvs are still op like in rts mode but probably not quite so powerful as before and as usual a good cv player will influence the battle way more than a good cruiser/bb player try it for a while it is fun that's for sure

    Lexington - how to kill DDs?

    not broadside unless you cant help it never use the keyboard to manoeuvre the planes once your attack has started unless you have no choice as this makes the bomb drop go over large area you need to drop once your in last seconds of the attack because that's the most chance of hitting dds and you will then get the 5/6 easy hits and they will wreck the dd this isn't easy to do and I advise watching youtube vids on people who play cvs a lot I recommend this guy https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXOZ2gv_ZGomWNcQU8BBfdQ practice a lot in the training room on learning the last second drop the drop times of he bombs means nothing as long as you hit unlike the ap bombs that need to be dropped at different times of the attack dependent on if its cruisers or bbs and that's why he bombs are so good because hits mean damage and then some fires whereas ap bombs are very rng at times when trying to get them citadels hope that helps

    Lexington - how to kill DDs?

    as stated above use dbs can easy get 8-10k hits and due to dd aa being near useless you can circle and get another drop if the dd is away from enemy always drop as late as possible for the max hits the rocket fighters are fine for killing dds but the tiny tims are tbh in my view crap for dd hunting

    Should the game return to RTS carriers?

    if cvs are in 9/10 games then wg will class that as a success one of the so called main reasons wg did the rework was so more people would play them

    Why is the Gneisenau now terrible at AA?

    many times while in a cv I have attacked a dd at start of match and though I only hit them with 1 salvo I save the rest of the planes to spot them and allow my team to either kill the dd early or force them away from cap the radar nerf that came in where you have to wait before rest of the team can shoot would be a damn good idea to implement by wg onto cvs for spotting all enemy ships not just dds dds are usually all or nothing with players either being epic in them and winning games easy or being complete turnips and may as well be bots but this has always been the case its just that cvs seem so op compared to a dd but in most lower tier cruisers its the same for them against bbs that can lol pen them from ranges the cruisers cant even reach lots is wrong with the balance of this game but I for sure would play dds all day long if I got 50k plus hp on them

    Friesland: before you spend your FXP

    I play cvs and don't find the friesland or kidd too much trouble yes I agree they can be a pain when its a good player but in reality that's rare these days I tend to just 1 strike them then rinse repeat till either they smoke up or run back to the enemy fleet and then its job done either way and then I pick on something else till the dd either gets himself isolated or I feel they are too much of a threat to the team and need to be attacked again I will admit a dd player can be a pain when they know how to dodge, smoke and do aa on or off but none are immune to cv wanting to kill em and as for the French dds its certainly a challenge for them

    Will removing slingshot actually do anything?

    only ever use it now and then and always against +2 tier higher ship that usually will shred the planes when your going in as normal i don't think it will effect cv gameplay for most cv players and the real reason wg are doing it is the placebo effect to the non cv players the same as the useless reporting system in game that wg use
  10. you cant just put up a couple of screen shots and say look how easy it is when nobody can see what your stats are like in them ships on a normal basis in my view you need at least 20 battles just to get a bit of a idea what your average is going to be in those ships how can we tell if your even a average player that is struggling in dds or a absolute turnip of a player with stats worse than bots I have faults when I play and accept my stats are not that good on a lot of my ships but by god I would never come on to a forum crying about a class being op or underpowered while hiding my stats so nobody could tell if I was taking out my [edited]or not I have had games in ships where I have done 0 damage and also in same ship had 200k games and both of those games prove nothing unless you look at the overall stats of the ships I seriously wonder about the player base at times (weekends im looking at you) but we have cv players in the game who are lucky to actually hit stuff while we have others who can wipe the floor with everyone and wg have to make a game where its about balanced for the middle ground player who is just about average honestly pal either unlock your stats so we can see if your a average player struggling or the usual whinging below average player who wants the game to be tailored around them because they feel its unfair
  11. didn't take long did it for the thread to turn into a lets hate cvs instead of lets discuss the ops original post and ideas this is why even though I play cvs I also play nearly all other classes about the same cvs in my view are op at tier 4 due to near 0 levels of aa on most ships tier 6 seem about spot on to me until you get a tier 8 heavy game where they suffer same as its too easy in a heavy tier 5 game so as I said about spot on in balance tier 8 is at times awful as its nearly always a tier 10 match up game and don't get me wrong when you do finally get a tier 8 game full of tier 6 ships its easy but the mm never hardly gives you that so to me tier 8 suffers badly tier 10 though is fairly balanced but by god if your a tier 10 cv in a tier 8 game its yum yum time as for cvs being too op against dds then yes I would say the balance aint perfect when you get a cv player that knows how to hunt dds but by god it aint impossible like it was when the rework came out i think the rework has about ground to a halt with anything wg will do to cvs now except for minor tweeks so don't hold your breath with the hope wg will drastically change how cvs are played or influence a game lets be honest here wg have got a new baby in their sights called subs and who can blame them for leaving cvs alone now when all you end up with is cvs being seen as like marmite you either love it or hate it

    what tier 10 ship to buy with my coal?

    Smolensk is my go to ship when I just want to spam crap out of anything I would recommend her to anyone who can get it before she disappears for "good" (I say good but wg has a record of putting anything into loot boxes at xmas that will bring the ship hunters out) I run Smolensk with both range upgrades and it feels fine even long range against bbs who your looking for fires on anyway rather than shell damage I also have the thunderer and though its also fun due to long range accurate guns the damn thing seems to eat damage easily jb is another ship I have that is very nice but with the sit and spam play with it that most do I find it gets boring fast whatever you get look up reviews on youtube and also in ship section of the forum to see what problems people are having with them
  13. I have managed to get citadel penetration hits to citadel with he on the very light armoured cruisers especially the british line the shell fired at them does make a difference and he from a bb can easily citadel pen whereas the dd guns just aint big enough most of the time shells can now also pen the torpedo bulge and not enter the ship and as such you get the penetration notification but get 0 damage

    Italian Ships SAP

    I enjoyed the tier 7 but found upto that tier all the Italian cruisers where awful the tier 9/10 are a beast in my view but even they are support ships and really only become viable for 1v1 towards end of game where you don't take the risk of a broadside salvo from a bb that you didn't anticipate sap on lower tiers does need a buff
