    Minotaur long range AA is mediocre at best, losing an entire squad without prolonged exposure is straight up impossible unless, again, you can't dodge flak at which point you don't deserve to survive anyway. As for TB heal, just hammer the button. With the new faster AA proc rate heal will initiate on your second button press if it doesn't on the first. So much for "hard reality" lol. Here's a good question: Why is the average player relevant? The average playerbase is simply bad, as such they should not be able to perform, and they don't. Decent players should perform decently, as they do, and skilled players should perform well, which they also do. Even suggesting that the average player should be able to do something despite being a complete and utter failure is laughable. Yes, I'm skilled. So what? It simply proves my level of performance is achievable, aka objectively speaking CVs are not in a bad place and certainly not unplayable. All you need to do is, again, git gud. And this is fact, backed up by my own performance which you so graciously pointed out.
  2. Considering subs literally have only a single counter class with their most dangerous opponent other than that being near extinct I'm gonna guess they'll start out fairly strong and only get more powerful from there. In no phase of the game do DDs really have the luxury to dedicate a long period of time to hunting down subs. On a different note, has anyone thought about that subs represent another escalation in spotting? After all they'll likely spend the vast majority of their time near enemy ships unopposed. There's also the possibility that the 12 player limit may become untenable even if subs are limited to 1-2 per team max. We can expect BB overpopulation to remain as is (as it has remained unfazed for years), as such keeping the limit could reduce the number of DDs and thus ships capable of effectively combating subs.

    Because just doing it ingame was too difficult apparently. (Or could cut into their earnings off of their... target audience I suppose.)

    No it doesn't. We are closer to balance than ever before (although that's not saying much considering what a cluster CVs have been before). A nerf would be a step in the wrong direction. CVs are not unplayable. Shima cannot easily down any planes unless you're bad enough to eat flak, F-spam is supposed to be punishing when used inside heavy AA (even when it really isn't if you know how to exploit accel bail) and TB heal is still useful. Most of what you're stating does in no way reflect reality and as such is pointless whining. Any grievances you have with the current state of CVs can easily be solved by simply gitting gud as CV players have haughtily preached to surface ship players for months on end. Refuse to do that and you forfeit your right to complain.

    Eh, good luck. I've been grinding for Columbia for like half a year already and before that spent several months on Jintsu as well. I don't even have Sendai. Problem with both Columbia and Jintsu is that they can only drop on boss nodes, so you only get one chance per run. Sendai at least can drop from every battle.
  6. Depth charges are automated. Just saying. How dense the spread is going to be few know yet. Also do they, really? After all to combat a submarine a DD has to move out of position directly over the sub to damage it or score a kill. The DD will likely be visible the entire time, drawing fire from everyone and their mother. Question also remains whether a charging DD can be easily torpedoed via homing torps. So while counterplay is technically possible, personally I don't see how it's going to be viable in normal combat scenarios.
  7. Preliminary sub mechanics: Submerged speed of the played sub was 8kn compared to a surface speed of 25kn.

    Submarines with acoustic torpedoes. Bad idea or good?

    Nonono, the actual reason was "they did too much damage to a CERTAIN ship class". Considering how you controlled missiles I can't IMAGINE which ship class that was.

    Generally speaking yes, evasion tanking is better than actual tanking. CAs get much better at that though once you level them above 100. Mogami e.g. goes from 34 eva to 80 at level 120 which is hilarious. Balti meanwhile gets up to 57 from 26 which is workable.
  11. You know what they've also said at one point? That BBs are overpowered and they're looking into ways to nerf them. That was in 2016, since then we've seen nothing but BB buffs both directly and indirectly. So yeah, you're late to the party.

    Except it does. They've literally stated so. Official wording was something along the lines of "if both sides are complaining then we must be on the right track." Face it, WG doesn't care.

    Kinda off topic, so spoilered:

    I swear this anime gets weirder with every episode. (Don't be fooled tho, the game itself is actually more of a PTSD simulator.) I wish they'd make a proper anime for GFL tho.
  15. Well, considering I mostly play CVs there... I haven't noticed any uncanny accuracy by other players tbh, but then again I'm mostly low tiers with surface ships still so I'm not entirely sure. Premium shop is certainly better than it is here tho. You can buy everything without a bloated bundle and it's way cheaper. Like WAY cheaper. Problem is you need a Chinese bank account so that's not exactly an option for most of you I guess.
