  1. Source "Dear players, It's been less than a week since update 0.8.0 release - a major, and probably the biggest change in the game yet, CV rework. We want to share the first list of fixes, changes and tweaks that are to be implemented to improve new CV and counter-CV gameplay. But first of all we sincerely thank you for your feedback and game activity, as well as apologize for any stress and inconvenience that you could experience due to massive game change. Please note that all information in this post is preliminary. 1. Critical changes and fixes that we're working on right now (to be implemented within 0.8.0 in "hotfix" update ASAP) Reduce the excessive efficiency of IJN tier X CV Hakuryu; Reduce the excessive efficiency of IJN Torpedo Bombers (reduce flooding chance, introduce spread debuff when maneuvering); Resolve the "F-spam" issue, when a CV can just recall its squadron at any time without considerable penalties (increase the vulnerability time for the squadron after recall so that players can shoot down some planes before it completely disengages); Do overall AA balancing: shift a part of damage from flak bursts to constant DPS. Flak bursts proved to be an interesting aspect of AA. However, on the one hand, they deal disproportional amount of damage, and on the other hand, avoiding them often results in completely insufficient damage to the planes; Do overall Attack Planes vs. Destroyers balancing. While this is an important thing to do, we would like to indicate that most players seem to underestimate the power of manual AA activation ([P] by default). Due to great DD concealment, if often makes sense to turn AA off until spotted. A DD spotted at minimal range is a lot harder to hit with the first attack run even with rockets. Although, this trick does not remove the need for further balancing; Do additional Premium CV and UK CV (unreleased) balancing; Remove the inconsistency between Des Moines and Salem in close/mid-range AA; 2. Changes and improvements that we work on now in the timeframe of next updates (0.8.1 and beyond). Improve plane reserves UI (information should me better presented); Improve AA sector UI (better usability); Do additional balancing for individual ships, armament, skills and upgrades, as the statistical data is being accumulated; Clear the minimap for non-CV ships (remove the unnecessary info about returning planes, etc); Finish the development for CV bots (Cooperative Battles); 3. Open questions and concerns to be researched in more detail and addressed if needed (no specific update planned yet, but it may change). The amount and quality of CV spotting in the new meta; MM limits (our ideal limit is 1 CV per team, very few cases of 2 CV (and always 1 at tier X, but right now the limit is 3 across the board): we would like to change the limits where/when possible. As indicated before, these are the first plans after several days of release. We will keep monitoring your feedback and update you about any further changes. Thank you, good luck, and fair seas! "

    IChase World of Warships - 0.8.0 - Why Your AA Sucks

    it's called video, you click on the arrow. This media form has been quite popular for a while.

    IChase and his new CV tactics.

  4. "Once CVs can dodge your flak AA, you better start praying your continuous DPS is good...well even that won't save you."
  5. How did you spec the ship and captain in the end? I am struggling with BFT vs Si

    Don’t buy PEF - she sucks hard

    So is Prince Eitel Friedrich AA useless after the 8.0.0 upgrade?
  7. I play mostly German BB and Massachusetts with secondary skilled captains (not with CE) and for me these changes are great. And if I will be more able to shoot back at Island hugging HE spammers is icing on the cake. Anything that will lessen HE spam is good for the game

    t8 MM: When will this be fixed???

    The T7 matchmaking is harder than it was short time ago. You get upscale more frequently
  9. I was just unlocking Bismarck, and like you I was using Aiming Systems 1 on Gneisenau. Are you using Aiming Systems 1 on Bismarck. What build did end with? I am really struggling with this German BB captain and ship builds.

    I did the same. I don't understand all this whining If you did not buy it you got it for free. So why all this whining? Your free ship is not the best T6 BB for your playstyle What a disappointment, lets burn the house down

    These stats don't lie. PEF is doing just fine. Lot of players playing it now. The old excuse only the best players are playing PEF does not count anymore. If PEF does not work for you, you have not found out how to play it well.

    PEF is the best T6 Battleship against aircraft carriers and destroyers. One of few BB in T6 that is not like a sitting fat duck when the planes arrives.

    Last Prinz directive

    After grinding Cossack I was not ready to another playing marathon so I bought PEF. And when I saw the last directive it was clearly the right move. Buying PEF was a good deal. Wargaming made it easy too get your money back in 6800 doubloons. Getting it free, in my opinion too hard and camo and flags expensive. If you want fast battlecruiser (BB) for free, the France Normandie T6 is faster with better guns
