  1. Poll on WG points mentioned during CV rework video

    Well yes - but they pretty much will have hydro or spotter planes ^^
  2. Poll on WG points mentioned during CV rework video

    Tbf, most players manage to press that button. Most don't announce it or wait for their reload to finish, but pressing the button is well within the range of capabilities of the average player. Btw, a TON of ships actually have radars these days ^^
  3. Poll on WG points mentioned during CV rework video

    QFT - the human factor cannot be ignored. WG waited long enough for the player base to effectively mitigate CV's influence. Hoping that your AA cruiser is not completely useless and out of position sadly didn't work out. Hoping that your AA cruiser is actually AA specced also didn't work out. There's so many layers of random in that counter strategy. This probably also lead to ABSURDLY high AA values IF you actually decide to spec for AA. So that non AA specced ships still have a slight chance/flavor.

    Yeh, almost never happens in randoms. Also, it'S not really fun to stick to the 80% of border surfers.
  5. Poll on WG points mentioned during CV rework video

    You assume that DDs are really that powerful, generally. A Lone CV can still devastate half the enemy team while kiting away, will rarely be caught off guard and can cap and strike on opposite ends of the map. A DD can do some of that under perfect conditions and will do this maybe once in 1000 matches. Yes - a DD can (and should) be a force multiplier (spotter) and herder (crowd control) like a CV but the CV can do this more consistently and can move around faster without becoming useless somewhere else. Plus there are way more counters to DD than to CV (in fact the CV is a DD's hardest counter - so it's basically the top dog regarding utility and power level). OF COURSE all of this is even more true if the only true counter of the CV is gone (the enemy CV). Same with DDs/BBs/Cruisers, but on another level imo.
  6. Poll on WG points mentioned during CV rework video

    I never said that I don't have a problem with CLASSES being too influential. I said that I doubt that PLAYER SKILL is the problem. If a class' power level is in line, then the individual skill of their players shouldn't be as much a problem as it's now. So yeah, player skill is a problem. But only because of the underlying problem which is the power level of CV.
  7. Poll on WG points mentioned during CV rework video

    Bad poll is bad. Biased as expected. Also, to the guys saying that the skill-gap is the main problem with CV: Is it a problem with other classes? Not really (kinda true with DD in competitive), because the other class' level of influence is way lower. So, the real problem is the influence of CV on the outcome of a match. I.e. limit the number of planes, i.e. limit their scouting potential, i.e. what WG is already implementing with their new concept. Do I think that the current mode could be saved and balanced? YES! But still, the UI issues would probably remain (infuriating) and most players expect an easy to grasp point and click adventure when they come to WoWS. So that's why the RTS gets thrown under the bus: Difficulties with the UI (apparently so hard to fix that it's easier to rework the class completely) and a presentation that is more in line with the rest of WG's products. ps: If you still think that the skill-gap is so important, think back to the last match that was dominated by two opposing Unicum CV players and how much fun you had.
  8. Poll: How many UK DD missions did you get?

    Got almost all the crates, even some from bonus codes - but couldn't be arsed to care for the hall of no life, so I missed a couple there. Got t5 (sold), 6 (never played), 7 (quite good) - used all the sovereigns on crates and got quite a bit of camos and flags, so overall
  9. Penalising players who don't pay to play.

    Enjoy your stay on Mt. Stupid! Your stats don't support that claim. Also, having 1-2 potatoes in front of you isn't flattering.
  10. 5 DDs again, and again, and again...

    lol - I fought Yamatos with my Pepsi back in the days
  11. Penalising players who don't pay to play.

    Firstly, OP premium ships are not the topic of this thread, secondly there are strong silver ships, too. And third - OPs bad performance cannot be explained by this. He just kinda sucks at this game.
