AP bombers OP?

2 days in a row that my Des Moines gets one shot by Midway's AP bombers. One salvo is enough to get over 50K damage. With 2 squads of bombers, even if 1 is destroyed by AA, enough bombers would survive to knock you out. CAs are easy target vs. DDs....This completely ruins the game, to me it is completely OP.

 

Do you encounter the same issue? Is there any tactics that can be used to limit damages? (Apart from Lemming train or asking WG to review the game mechanism...)

From your lemming remark it looks you went yolo, so those bombers work as intended.

Midway AP working on:

 

T8 BBs (exp. NC)

Friedrich (only t9)

no T10 BB

T9 CAs

T10 CAs

 

Guess most would be totaly fine with: "Hits all BBs hard, doesnt oneshot any CA"

But WG made the "anti BB weapon" totaly worthless against hightier BBs.

Not really though.

If the CV catches you with DFAA on cooldown, there are a few planes going through. And when that happens, it's insta citadels.

DFAA on cooldown but too many AA mounts destroyed? All it takes is 4 bombs out of 14 to hit, and it's GG.
I've had it happen to my DM, and I've done it to DMs and HIVs using a Lexington.


Welcome to the anti BB AP bombs, which work reliably better on CAs than BBs.

Because there's clearly no such thing as pulling your planes away, or losing AA mounts, or using DFAA to protect a friendly from being struck 
Clearly.

Again, I've done it to DMs with DFAA active using a Lexington.
All it takes is 4 bombs out of 14.

 

It doesn't take a genius or a raging hatred of CVs to see that an anti BB weapon that works best against against cruisers is fundamentally stupid.

i would really like to test your theory with my DM in training room, i can guaranty you you will not one shot me, or eaven hurt me much

 

i stated if DM did not do someting very very wrong (aka not speced at all in aaa, or used deff AAA on spoter plane, or going solo yolo and go to toilet)

 

in real battle scenario DM has THE BEST aaa and no [edited]way you get oneshoted if you play right

Like deep water torpedoes, extra dangerous to cruisers.

Cause baiting def AA is not possible... I agree it's probably easier to oneshot a moskva but a good CV will do the same to a DM

In real battle scenario, you use DFAA and you lose AA mounts. You're going to be maneuvering to avoid BB and are going to be near islands, impeding movement.
Not everything is ever going to be a perfect training battle scenario where you just sit in the open knowing where the planes are coming from, and just have to worry about pressing a button to win.
 

So yes, I heavily maintain what I said based on personnal observations. 
AP bombs are absolutely ridiculous in their current state. I've been saying it since they were first tested.

Yup, that's exactly it.
Poorly planned.

Not everybody is unicum player, some people use DFAA to help other ships - so to imply that someone is a bad player for not having DFAA available in a Des when bombers are overhead is arrogance.

Cheers pal ;-)

 

I am there already but think that 60% and over is far from being impossible with that ship, I enjoy DM a lot, that's why I was really pissed off when I posted that topic.

 

Now I still think that AP bombs are OP for CAs and WG should do sth about it...

 

Have a great day

Spec your DM with AA guns modification 2 and AA guns modification 3.

Spec your DM captain with BFT, AFT and Manual AA. (click on the squadron you consider more dangerous)

Have premium Def AA consumable and use it wisely.

Have at least 1 more friendly cruiser/AA Battleship 3-4 kms near you.

If you are still getting blapped by Midways after doing these, delete game.

56.09%. Wear glasses. Good glasses because my stats are hidden.

 

Finally you are not my pal, rather a complacent [...]. Bashing others and telling tem they are crap is a way to look greater, you should be a very small little angry man
