  1. But how will you make CA stronger compared to BB, without making it to easy for CAs to firespam BBs to death?
  2. When it comes to that, I feel that meeting ships two tiers higher is a much larger issue than the any one single class of ships.
  3. If you HE spam battleships enough, you will influence the game by sinking enemy ships and giving the team and advantage. More importantly, HE spamming enemy battleships can make they stay further away from the capzones, making them less able to support the struggle for the caps.
  4. Or maybe WG want it to be like that so people spend real money to Free XP past it? It seems to me that a lot of lines have relatively unattractive ships at tier 9. The Fletcher being the biggest exception to that rule.
  5. Minotaur sinkings in smoke

    You should be very careful to not smoke up when you are spotted. If you slow down and smoke while spotted, someone will see your exact position before you go invisible. Have both been sunk myself and sunk others because of that mistake. You should also be careful to only shoot from smoke when your enemies have other targets to fire at, as the chance is lower they will shoot into your smoke when they are already engaging another ship.

    But again, in real battles CVs were among the ships classes, usually the ship class, that were in most risk of being sunk. If you look at the CV engangements where there were one to four CVs on each side, at least one usually got sunk and for the most part more than one. In this game CVs have the highest surviveability by far, something they did not have in real battles. And a game simulating raids on ports or chance surprise attacks are not that interesting. The thing is that all other ships are in risk of being sunk in a one on one encounter, even though a torpedo DD sunk in a one on one against a BB are not amongst the most skilled players. But the strike power of a CV will not be reduced until it loses so many planes they cannot fill their squadron, and even with me that does not happen until the end of the battle. The CV are guaranteed full strike power until at least half the battle, something other ship classes are not. And since I do not want CVs in the game in this form, off course I do not want this luck based AA either. I was making a general argument, not of me generally, When a BB and in a battle with CV, it just as well to camp beside the friendly CV. I also did not use the word "camp" but "sailing around in circles in your own cap zone". The concept are not the same, since camping includes situations other than sailing around in circles in friendly capzone.

    Off course I am for real. With CVs in the battle, a ship that tries to start a push by going before the ships on the team easily gets targeted and sunk by planes. It is just safer to stay in place because that reduces the risk of falling behind or getting to far in front. Yes, you do lose some planes, but you still do not get in danger of getting outrights sunk like the other ships. Which is kind of ironic given that carriers were more often sunk than other ships in the battles where the sides were relatively balanced.

    But someone have to decide where to move, at what pace and so on, and then it easily end up with the whole team just staying more or less in place. it seems to me that some people love to play carriers, because the love picking on people that cannot fight back. Kind of schoolyard bullies, now having got their own ship class in WOWS.

    Working together does not mean just circling around your capzone to avoid aircraft. What I miss when contesting a cap for example is my teammates pushing the flank to dislodge the radar cruiser hiding behind rocks, rather than staying in a flock and camping behind the capzone. And if carriers were more realistic, they would concentrate on each other rather than trying to damage farm the enemy surface ships while still having enemy carriers active. The problem with ships working together is to coordinate it. It worked fine in real life because you had an admiral in overall command, but you do not have that in these games.

    Why? Why is the game so much more fund when the ships are herded together? A lone BB is already in danger from DD torps and concentrated HE spamming. It is not like a lone BB is safe only because a CV is not present in the battle.

    Rather you that have no sense of humour. Seems that most good players lack that. I simply believe that BBs do not camp as much as you claim. Yes, they can be very defensive and keep back to much, but not to such a degree the CV lovers on this forum claims.
  12. To overhaul CV, must discard mirrored MM

    Without CV they ast least move a bit from the spawn point, even though they may not move to close to the enemey.

    Just had a game where one CV was a unicrum, resulting in the entire team just sailing around in circles around our own spawn. Not a very fun game at all.

    However, one of them were a chance meeting a massacre rather than "battle", and in the other one, one of the sides were desperate. You may only list two pure BB engagement, but if you list pure surface engagements without CV involvement, the number rises considerably. It is also noteworthy that against Italy, the english CVs did not do much in the battles there, if you seperate battles and "air raids", which I suspect you do not.
  15. Nerf Conq already!

    I did not claim that! Now you tried to twist what I say to sound like a whiner. I rather claimed that what I claimed was relevant to people with average skills for a BB captain as this stage. I have also mostly played cruisers for a while, so the aim for BB is a bit out of practice. And I also think that the BB dispersion is good for balance. I rather miss a bit in my Conqueror than being LOLpenned after one minute in each match in my Henry :)
