  1. I don't know if a topic was previously done before about this topic, but I think it's something we should care about as the Graf Zeppelin was really the only aircraft carrier done by the german Kriegsmarine. This project was intended so that the power of the Kriegsmarine would go further than just the confines of the Baltic seas. This carrier if it would have been finished it could of have been capable of transporting 42 fighters and dive bombers- 12 fighters and 30 dive bombers. It was expected that it would either carry 12 Junkers Ju 87, prepared to land on carriers, and thirty Bf 109 and Fi 167 torpedo bombers. This carrier was 262.5 meters long and an beam of 36 meters, its max. speed was of about 38 knots, about 62 km. The carrier was laid down 28 December of 1936, and it was launched the 8 of December of 1938, when it was 85% completed. Armament The armament was rather simple and did not fit any battery bigger than 15 cm cannons to defend themselves against other warships. 16 × 15 cm SK C/28 guns 12 × 10.5 cm SK C/33 guns 22 × 3.7 cm SK C/30 guns 28 × 2 cm FlaK guns Armor The Graf Zeppelin was finely defended, as at the belt the amount of protection was of 100mm (3.9) in. The flight deck was protected with 45 mm (1.8) in. Now the main deck was a bit better protected than the flight deck with 60 mm (2.4) in. Now my question is, will it be present in the German Kriegsmarine branch tree of World of Warships, or will it just remain as an iconic ship?
  2. As I have been mostly playing aircraft carriers so far in the CBT I feel that despite the fun I'm having there is one huge problem that I just have to point out. The scaling of the aircraft. Any CV player should be able to agree that anytime you go up against a higher tier carrier your fighters will become absolutely garbage. Why is it that the difference between 1 tier matters so much when it comes to fighters? It's not uncommon to see a 100% increase in effective power (Damage + Survivability) and it's not uncommon to lose a whole squadron while only killing a single of the enemies planes who are just from a single tier higher carrier. Thoughts about this and what can be done? Making lower tier fighters slightly stronger?

    Wieso fehlen die Flugzeugemodelle...

    auf den deutschen Schlachtschiffen T8-10. Am merkwürdigsten finde ich dabei die Bismarck, da ja das Schwesterschiff das Flugzeug ja ordentlich zeigt. Ist etwas bekannt,ob und wann das geändert werden soll? Ich finde es jetzt nicht wirklich schlimm aber es nimmt ein bisschen von der Atmosphäre.

    Swedish Cruiser HSwMS Gotland

    Although I am not Swedish, I think this would make quite an interesting Premium cruiser, possibly tier 4 or 5? It carried 6 Hawker Osprey aircraft, although it had a capacity for eight, the reason being that Sweden originally bought 6 but when it tried to purchase more, production has ceased. From Wikipedia: Armament 6x 152mm (6in) guns in two double turrets and two single turrets 4x75mm and 4x25mm AA guns 6x533mm torpedo tubes More stuff from Wikipedia Displacement: 4,600 t Length: 134.8 m (442 ft 3 in) Beam: 15.4 m (50 ft 6 in) Draught: 4.5 m (14 ft 9 in) Happy Sailing Trebor_Air_Fighter

    RN Cruiser AA thoughts

    Yes, yes it's another RN thread... BUT! It isn't a "When are they coming?", oh no this is just a thread to get your guys opinions on the strength of the Royal Navy AA. With rumors that the Royal Navy cruiser line is coming in the Q3 of 2016 there is lots to talk about before then. Do you think that the overall cruiser line AA will be as good as US cruiser AA or as bad as the Japanese cruiser AA or near the middle with the German cruisers AA? I myself am not too sure, I think they may on par with the German cruiser AA, again just my 2 cents.

    Japanische Flugzeugträger

    Hallo Wargaming-Team, Ich fahre sehr gerne Japanische Schiffe unter anderem z.B. den Flugzeugträger Zuhio. Aber es regt mich immer wieder auf, dass dessen Fighter denen einer Bogue dermaßen stark unterlegen sind, dass ich theoretisch direkt das Spiel verlassen kann, da meine Flugzeuge - besonders mit dem Fighter Loadout auf der Bogue - direkt zerstört werden und ich somit keine Chance habe, ordentlich Punkte zu machen. Es verdirbt den Spielspass und erst Recht den Spaß an den Japanischen Flugzeugträgern, somit ist das spielen bis zum Tier 6 Flugzeugträger der Japaner eine Qual für mich! Es wäre toll, wenn man dies ändern könnte und die Fighter stärker machen würde, damit das Gefecht nicht sofort verloren ist!
  8. HI guys, I'm no more able to drop manual torpedo by aircraft using the ALT command. I've always used without problems....I have had some months of break and now that I'm playing again I have this strange issue....maybe some updates? When I select an airplane and I press the ALT button nothing happens. If I'm using a battleship for example and I press ALT command I can see the information about the other ship like always (this means the button works well). The command settings are default and the ALT bottom is setted to "alternative battle interface mode". I don't see a specific command to manual torpedo/bomb drop but pressing "F1" during the game, in the Aircraft help tab I can see that ALT is the button to use for the manual drop..... Anyway I've always used the ALT button and I never had this problem before.... Someone can help me please? Thank you very much!
  9. I ordered the torpedo bombers to attack a CV and the fighters to got after a fighter squadron orbiting that CV. In transit to the target the carrier was sunk by someone else and I did not notice it. I became aware of the yellow markers but could not figure out the meaning. The fighters transmitted 2 or 3 times, but no audio was played. I tried to ask some fellow players what the markers could mean. I assume that the radio messages were telling me that they're orbiting and awaiting orders, but they didn't, they kept heading in the original direction. The current solution of showing me the markers is ineffective as I had no clue what they were trying to tell me. Also: hte targeted fighter squadron is still there, although it has lost its mother ship. So the fighters should have gone on without a marker, right? Their target is still existing.
  10. This question came up into my mind a few times: the catapult fighter and the spotter plane on BB's and CA/CL's is a numbered ability, meaning that you can launch it only so many times before it runs out. Why? is it a balance consideration? Why can't it work like it works for carriers: Whatever aircraft you recover you can launch again? Catapult fighters are not all that powerful, so them counting off every time they are launched seems to make not that much sense. Is it because of their spotting capacity? I'm just curious, as I'd like to see recovered aircraft being launchable again, but if it can be reasoned against it's fine. Cheers
  11. In an RTS the player selects the desired unit by left clicking on it (or left-click and drag for selecting multiple units), then gives orders to the unit by right-clicking. Right-click on terrain for ''Move to here'' and Right-click on an enemy unit for ''Attack this enemy unit''. This use of the mouse buttons is 'programmed' deep in the RTS gamers mind. So when World of Warships RTS-like carrier gameplay messes with these (almost) universal controls the carrier gameplay becomes very frustrating for the RTS gamers. This frustration is further fueled by the discovery of the fact that this mouse-key confirguration cannot be changed in the control settings. It is a shame that such a simple thing is allowed ruin the experience of the otherwise fun and well executed carrier gameplay.
  12. Hallo ich bin BlueLight, ich wollte nur kurz ein Thema anschneiden welches mir aufgefallen ist. Ich persöhnlich finde eifnach das die Flugzeugträger der 2 Nationen Japan und USA wirklich sehr unausgeglichen sind . Vergleich : Pro Contra Japan - gute Tarnung und Bewegung - Kann es sehr selten mit anderen Flugzeugen aufnehmen - Gut gg andere Schiffe - weniger Flugzeuge pro Staffel und Insgesamt - schnell und wendig - niedrige Überlebensfähigkeit - viele Staffeln - auf Team angewiesen - große Schwierigkeiten gg Zerstörer / selten möglich gut zu treffen - Bomber treffen eher selten und haben wenig DMG USA - Stark gg andere Träger und Flugzeuge - nicht so mobil und nicht so guter Tarnwert - Jäger besten im Spiel - weniger verschiedene Staffeln zum reagieren - Flugzeuge hohe Überlebensfähigkeit - weniger Staffeln - gute Chance all Schiffsarten zu töten - bestimmen den Luftraum emens - Bomber machen viel Dmg und treffen gut - viele Flugzeuge allgemein / pro Staffel - nicht unbedingt auf Team angewiesen Was sagt ihr dazu schreibt doch gerne mal eure Meinungen als Kommentar oder falls ihr anderer Meinugn seid. Ich spiele selbst gerne die Japaner würde mir nur ein wenig mehr Balance wünschen. Was ich sehr ausgeglichen finde ist bei beiden zum Beispiel die Flugabwehr da kann man echt nichts sagen. Ich halte nur einfach die Amerikaner stärken da sie wesentlich mehr Vorteile für den Kampf im Gepäck haben. Eigene Meinungen und Erfahrung gern erwünscht!! Mfg xBlueLighTx
