    CV rework failed every test it was set.

    The problem I see is one of cost v benefit, as a class CV offer too little benefit back to the surface ships to justify the cost that is imposed on them by their presence in the game.

    Your favorite DD: Tier for tier

    For those of you who remember the good old pre-nerf fail division days: 2. Umikaze; 3. Wakatake; 4. Isokaze; 5. Isokaze; 6. Isokaze; 7. Isokaze; 8. Isokaze; 9. Isokaze; 10. Isokaze.

    Your favorite DD: Tier for tier

    The pride of the Royal Navy and highlight of the entire RN DD line, HMS Nonpareil AKA Gadjah Mada.
  4. Most of the major stats for DD are imaginary, it wouldn't be too hard to tweak them to fit any ship into any tier.
  5. So, essentially, WG released the CV rework before it was ready to meet whatever internal deadline they had, now they're rushing the final balancing to meet the deadline for players to sell back the premium ships.

    So what is the consensus on CVs ?

    The fundamental problem IMO is the survival rate and time for CV, they live too long and offer too little back to other classes to justify them having a high damage output or influence on the game, but without that what's the point in them?

    [Poll] CV's Rework vs Rollback

    This, but also why would you want to invest free XP and captain retraining costs into a ship/line when you've no idea where it's going to be in a week's time let alone 6 months from now.
  8. Not unreasonable since IRL something like 10 (or more) DD were built for every BB. In game I think it's best to think about every DD representing a flotilla of ships rather than just the one ship.

    [Poll] CV's Rework vs Rollback

    I'm not even sure WG know what a balanced CV would look like, I have a hard time imagining it myself.

    PTS - Space Games (and maps for them)

    A bit o/t but it would've been better if the 3 modes cycled hourly (or similar) instead of 2 days for one mode and 1 day each for the others, I missed the assaul mode.

    [Poll] CV's Rework vs Rollback

    The difference is the reward, you might get smacked in a cruiser for 50% of your HP by a BB or a CV, but in the former case you have the chance to burn him down, or smack a DD for 50% HP, who could one-shot the BB, with CV all you really get is a bit of bonus XP from plane kills.

    PTS - Space Games (and maps for them)

    Not sure I like queueing up for 2 minute battles, it's going to get boring very quickly. Also map makes it hard to spot the torps.

    [Poll] CV's Rework vs Rollback

    I've seen plenty of ships lose 50%+ of HP to CV in the first few minutes, so even if it's not a one-shot it is pretty much mission-kill/game-over before you've fired your guns. The difference between CV and BB/DD is that you can one-shot them back so the XP/credits you lose out on from being killed get returned to you when you kill them, in the case of CV the problem is that there's too little return to the other classes compared to the cost they inflict on them.

    [Poll] CV's Rework vs Rollback

    It might be that there's not much incentive for new players to grind CV or spend FXP etc when there's no certainty about what the final state will be.
