    Over-nerfed CVs

    Well I meant that a tier 10 carrier should have a chance of attacking battleships of the same tier and should be able to enter up to a couple of AA bubbles providing defensive fire isn't up without losing everything. Plane losses are punished too heavily right now which is why the F key thing was necessary

    you shouldn't have to be very picky about targets in a tier 10 aircraft carrier

    Everyone focused on the tier 10 carriers.

    DD's aren't useless. just take one with defensive fire
  4. Leave my Hakuryu alone. CV damage has gone down a lot with the patch. As has alpha strike. It's not the first thing that needs fixing

    Discussion thread for "some interesting info around the world"

    AA seems too much now. stuff like a Yamato should not be decimating the aircraft of a tier 10 aircraft carrier. The end

    Have they nerfed the Missouri?!

    they should, because no battleship should have radar. period

    Concerning the upcoming CV rework

    Because I want to play in randoms and you will hardly make your money back playing a tier 10 CV in co op

    Concerning the upcoming CV rework

    I just want to be able to enjoy sailing my five aircraft carriers. Which I haven't been able to for the last year because of fighter management

    Concerning the upcoming CV rework

    You seem to be sceptical of these changes and to removing strafing. Ok so how do you take strafing out then and massively reduce the skill in fighter management

    Concerning the upcoming CV rework

    Strafing entirely defines fighter combat though and it's that skill gap which is the entire problem. If that comes away CV's are then manageable. I haven't played any in a year since I cant get close in fighter duels. WG as ever goes too far in changes but changes have been needed in carriers for two years. But CV unicums like you will like the status quo

    Concerning the upcoming CV rework

    I agree that defensive fire needs to punish. I have never had a problem with defensive fire. I have had a problem with battleships on their own being immune from a CV attack with stuff like manual AA and commander skills pushing non AA Battleships like Bismarcks into AA fortresses that you need a carrier two tiers higher to have a chance against it. If a Battleship is caught on its own without cruiser support by a cruiser it should suffer. the problem with carriers right now is the strafe mechanic and AA powercreep. far too much reliance is on strafe, which needs high skill to execute properly and one correct strafe can decide the entire match because at that point one CV has fighters and the other doesn't so can clean house. People like El2azer and Farazelleth don't understand that because they are cv unicums so profit from this mechanic. before that fighter battles would be much more even and so the rest could be managed better. I am behind the overall concept. of course there needs to be a balance but Battleships have had two years as the dominant ship. if there is a period coming where they play second fiddle that is a good thing. defensive fire just needs to punish an aircraft carrier when it wanders into it to an extent

    Concerning the upcoming CV rework

    all they needed to do for me was remove strafing at that point I could handle CV's. strafing was supposed to be the exception but it became a ridiculous dance in the air with a huge skill gap. take that away and its manageable. and tone AA down a bit

    Concerning the upcoming CV rework

    But they want a greater CV population. I have stopped playing them completely because of their state. Also I will get the RN tier X and any RN premium so that's not entirely true

    The CV Captains Cabin

    I haven't played CV in a year and before that they were my favourite class once. There is simply too much of a skill gap around fighter control at the moment. WG always balance with a sledgehammer but something needed doing to get people like me back. The facts are that CVs are hardly played now. Though this is almost entirely due to patch after patch buffing AA and adding AA fortresses and making fighter control too skill dependent

    Concerning the upcoming CV rework

    Agree. Strafing is the problem. But also the absurd AA about presently. I have five CVs including Hakuryu and Midway but I haven't played any in a year because I have been waiting for change. I am exactly the sort of person they want to get back in them
