    Saipan refund - are we being serious?

    It's like we are going in circles. A never ending rondo of the same shallow and repetitive arguments about what makes or not makes a CV. And the worse part is that the least skilled part of the playerbase will allways blame CVs for their shortcomings. Have I told you the definition of insanity already?
  2. What I don't have clear is if CV's lose RPF with 0.8.2 too.

    Adapt and git gud.

    I must reckon that I quite like the Saipan. Probably like it more than Enterprise because it doesn't feel incredibly bad when uptiered. Her HE bombs hold quite a punch and the high HE means it can bully all DDs quite efectively. Torpedo bombers are ok if you make good use of them like in Midway except they actually have higher alpha. Tiny Tims are as good as ever too.

    So what is the consensus on CVs ?

    Can't this forum have an automatic macro that replies to every potato asking for CV removal with a "git gud"? We've had those since day one of the game's life so it'd be really helpful.

    Why this CV rework is FAIL

    If anything I have learnt by being here since Alpha is that the way they gather and consider data is most times counterproductive to the enjoyment and logic of anyone invested in the game like those usingg the forums so of course they won't show it to you since you could then point out some real BS on their decisions.

    You know he's going to come now with "but... but... a ship shouldn't be so powerful as in needing teamplay to be countered!!" Anyway, good to see you tackling the CV removal nonsense that allways come in crude or more elaborated forms. I dunno how you still got the patience to deal with this kind of hypocrisy and ignorance and still be able to answer properly. I lost mine long ago, I just shake my head or laugh snarkingly.

    CV Rework Discussion

    I think I can help you with that. Continous DPS flak isn't really "continous", it isn't constantly applied to planes. Each kind of AA mount shoots at a certain time interval, has a certain chance to hit your planes and deliver X quantity of damage (you can read those for every ship in the port). What you notice as sudden explosions is basically the salvo of AA of most probably the medium calliber cannons reaching your squadron and hitting it, now, as there is a certain RNG element involved you may be hit by lots of projectiles from a given salvo or by less: In those cases when your planes evaporate it is mainly because a salvo got a higher than average number of hits.

    When is the CV nerfing going to end ??

    People has the right to complain, nobody ever denied that. But at the same time people have the right to look for info about the source of those comments and based on that give them their due value. It's not the same considering the opinion of a professional athlete or an amateur jogger. Besides, he wasn't complaining about the state of CVs in the first place.

    Fortunately for us, his clan statistics are open for anyone to consult and yeah, it's just as expected: [PIPI_] has an overall WR of 48,56%. But wait there is more! Now I've never claimed to be good at maths but given his stats are the only one hidden in his clan I think we can get his WR like this: ( 46.9 + 51.76 + 53.06 +X)/4=48.56 (48.56*4)-(46.9+51.76+53.06)=X X = 42,52% So yeah... It was pretty obvious he has no idea of what he's talking about just from that comment but this pretty much confirms it

    Quality of Life for the CV player has dropped dramatically. It is frustrating, boring and unfun to play CVs now, sure I can get a good Winrate with them but what is the point of playing a game if it's going to turn out into a frustrating experience. To make matters worse you are overstimating the capacity of the playerbase to accept these nerfs. A lot of the top CV players have given up with this rework and now stick to surface ships, other have even started opening accounts on the chinese server given the old RTS style is still there. It is also the bane of any new player getting into the game and having with this extremely frustrating gameplay. You may destroy your own rework on your quest for "balancing" CVs with this rushed patchworks: a frustrating experience, high skill low reward gameplay, hard to master but pointless class, low active playerbase and worse of all: You'd end up with an objectively worse product than the old RTS carriers.

    Says who? Since when a BB is not supposed to be able to touch a DD? Since when a cruiser is not supposed to be able to touch a BB? The ideal is not that hardwired rigid definition, the ideal is that if said Minotaur played badly it shoud still be vulnerable to CVs. Current Minotaur has to do nothing to become practically invulnerable to air attack.

    Even WG can't be THAT stupid, and I base my doubt on looking at current techtree progression for other classes which are full with a lot of enjoyable mid tier ships.

    Their braincells are understandably fizzing after being overworked this last week trying to find a solution so we'll have to wait another week for them to finally recognize further adjustments are needed. After thoroughly engaging their brains they'll justifiably nerf AA DPS by another 1% and pat themselves in the back for a job well done.
