I have been playing this game loads since I discovered it and have loved it. I hate complaining but I have to say the following. Almost every game today has had two carriers per side. The team with the best flyboys wins. If you are not playing a carrier and it's a close game then it doesn't seem to matter how well you play the carriers will get you, especially late game. I feel that a lot of the time I am just providing target practice for the planes. Everyone grouping together to try and counter this is making some games extremely passive and has taken away some of the dynamic gameplay I used to really enjoy in this game. Surely only carrier players and wargaming seem to think that carriers are not too strong. I have played about 2000 games so I realise I am a relative newcomer but this game is nowhere near as fun as it used to be since the rework. I realise lots of time and effort was put into the carrier rework by the game designers but I just feel alienated.
