    Does current CV gameplay lack skill aspect?

    no, you cant play old VS new, prurely out of CV vs CV reasons. What you can do is...... ODD Tier old CV! (bring back my hiryu, and Taiho), maby AA is a little problematic, balancing and flak wise, but els, why not.

    Does current CV gameplay lack skill aspect?

    YES. ooh, aiming became a little more skill based. And dodging FLAK was introduced and is semi-skill. But that is kinda the extend of skill a cv has. Maybe the target selection processes with each take-off. But that is a HUGE downgrade in skill compared to the CONTINUES dynamic multi "target" selection of the old CV, (where on the map to focus your attention). The cv vs cv (fighter) interaction is gone, the scouting, DINYING scouting, zoneing, mobile AA defence. the ship vs plane interaction is gone, Baiting DFAA, sneaking in before DFAA (reconising DFAA ship to busy to notice planes). Dropping through DFAA, was allready nerfed with removal of "bug" (femmenly's don't re-aim ather DFAA is activated = no panic spread). true cross dropping is gone. Saving drop for repair to be on cooldown is gone (strikes are so numerous, just take an new squad). Allied torp interaction is gone, with the treat of old CV torp drop you could coax enemy ship in to allied torp. (Or by mistake do the opposite). Etc, etc, etc. IN SHORT, for the exact reasons you give.

    Magic Dual Purpose Guns ?

    Wow, you find this out now? This has been a meme for so long wiht the CV players (pre-rework Cv players). And one of he thing CV players wanted to adress wih the rework,. but it became a 3th person boming sim instead of a balnace rts rework. Rip, WoWs, Hello WoWp, Hello CONSLE. Yes they are magical.

    Capping mechanic

    Capping? That's only for the super unicorn win rate%. It's way to dangerus! Above that. WHY, would a potato/statspader contest. It's not like CONTESTING gives EXP! But seriously, OK idea, don't let it be a 1 to 1 ratio tough. Rather something like: contesting ship blocks 100% first capping. 50% of 2nd capping ship capping speed & 25% of 3 th capping ship.

    CV UI lag

    But, But, But that would be considered FIXING CVs! And that is beyond imaginable! Let alone lissening to the playing playerbase is against WG policy. Because if they actually lissend to CV paying playerbase and adressed the issue (and solutions) they gave. CVs would be fixed & played. And that goes against WG policy of making CVs as crincy as it can, to "validate" there removal (or WoWp "rework"). And dumd the game down even more. Teamplay! Why? No CV, no need. Allies are there to hide behind & be meat shields anyways. While I secure the 1 line, max range of courses, don't want a chance to get my paint scratched!

    The Reason why people dont play CV

    YOU prove the OPOSTIE , INstead of DEMANDING your "requerment". from your lazy arm-chair. You prove " Power spike AA" AINT the reason why most CV grinds end. You prove Balance "increased" CV pop YOU prove cv got NOT harder and harder to play. every patch You Prove <insert poitn here> your "anti" point. Put the EFFORT in yourself! Easy demandign "Proof". even the notion " streamers" are more right than not streamers, since you want streamer "proof") i find disgusting, and thats an opinion. Like there oppinion, matters more than any 1 els. and therefore can be Qualifed as proof.

    The Carrier Problem

    Notice the date! Even afther multipe question, WG doesnt even releas info about plane spotted mechnich. Let alone balance with "spotted" range or give ingame info about these ranges I do Agree that a Small "!' icon by planes would be VERRY usefull (boarderline OP for Unicorns in current meta). but since these are UI and CV inprovmetns, i personally dont have my hopes up (since 2015).

    Worried CV Rework

    Allright. I, TomBombardil (CV'ish main, since early CBT), am worried about CV rework. I have watched, struggeld and "excepted" that WG keeps on shitting on CV and CV "Ballance". Not only have they keept buffing AA, intruduce % wise more AA ship (% even more "AA no fly zones"), and nerfed CV. They also sold nerfs as buffs. And made the UI progressingly worse. BUT thats not why im worrierd, since i dont have a high regard for WG (let allone WGCV). But THIS IS: Year of the CVtm, CVrework is a front for: "Year of the Console", get CVWoWp console ready. Since CV do need work (UI, AA, fighter rng, etc) All players (including CV players) agree on CV need a rework! I suspected this wouldn't go in the direction cv players hope for in general. But now there are "confermed" rumours: (Waterline) & Jingles. Here the CV rework is being "rumourd" as making CV's to WoWp & console ready. Now i dont wanne go in to the details. but my question to the CV communatie is: IS there intrest for an Cohort (jointly) response or put up some jointly protests? Can we (the CV players) make a common "cv fist" vs the WG hammer? and is it worth the effort? Best Regards, TomBombardil One of the first haka match everrhh, ps; this video brought me back to WoWs (quited it soon afther lauche) & i hate lineriding, refused to do it. Still bashing about lineriding occasionally. should have know better VS aerroon

    The Carrier Problem

    @Infiriel The precetage of ship that are "Helpless", is low (talking about tier 6 and up), and even those have some AA and a team. While the % of "No flyzone" is High, and gettign higher by the new ships introduced (French BBs, USN cl split). Only need 1 "no fly zone" ship needed to diny a area! With the fact that the even mediocer AA ships can SPEC to be no flyzones (hindenberg), and a "no fly zone" Ship can increas it readius and effectifness. (without sharing that info to the ones that need it, the CVs).

    The Carrier Problem

    You mean: Year of the CONSOLE (cv ready). NoZoupForYou interview with jingles but I'm straighing from the op topic, AA diversity by (capt) builds.

    The Carrier Problem

    well you see my well researched piece about; "invis AA" has 0 replies, but when i make a Shouting post. It gets noticed, this is what i partialy mean with "shouters", And that Everyone (including WG) should try to avoid a "shouting" match to deictate there polecie.

    The Carrier Problem

    @dasCKD Holy crap DAS what a great piece, worth of a university Essay. (might wanne read it again from some "spelling/traslation" issues, they are hard to understand, before giving it to your professor. ). But i give it a 8+ (only shows i read it well) IT reminds me of when i took the time and effort to write these essays for WG about CV gameplay (link to my old & semi-outdated 0.3.x CBT essay's). Now a days i found that "spamming" is actualy what WG cares for more, than a well tought out and effort Esays. the masses/shouters are there targeted audiances. Personaly i sometimes still try to give some CV balancing advice by shouting too. Capain Skills & Ship Upgrades. You really hit the nail on the head wiht this part. Loved your new " Cross Sectional Fire Power". I know where these numbers come from (AA*timeR), but might wanne eddit the formula in. Defective fire In my opinion you missed an opportunity here to show the increas of CSFP whit DFAA since DFAA: Scatters, SLOWS (all squads) & uses the "adjusted" 3xmultiplier. Let alone the power of the DD 4x multiplier. Becouse why bother? Your part about "psychologies" , what do people remember, is really hard to understand. Personally (my opinion) I think you could have explaned that: “I had a game ONCE" is NOT the same as OVERALL & MANY, strengthening your argument about psychologies, and about “balancing by the occasional” Tom's View In addition what you allready posted in original post (the major issue are UI + Capt Skill & upgrades). I feel that invisable(/late detectead) AA is a major secundaire issue. With a minor, the info a CV has, Explained in THIS "essay" patch 0.6.x (i think). Best Regards TomBombardil PS, hope @Crysantosreads this and relays it back to WG, but i think even if it reaches WG (and wanne lissen to CV players). thery''re allready to far in to the CV rework rabbit hole.
