I have never played carrier,'s but with the new format it may well be something that would get me interested in playing them now.

I have all the Japanese aircraft carriers but I am still grinding through the American carriers (currently on Lexington) and also have 3 of the 4 premium aircraft carriers

Well, currently burned out from this game and taking a prolonged break so I won't be testing anything. Not that I would expect anything to really change based on feedback coming from people who actually enjoyed the old RTS format since you guys had 3 years worth of input and just sat on your hands. I'll pass for now ...

 

 

Meh

I am actually curious how they plan on keeping the identity/flavour of prem carriers like Saipan and Kaga who are defined by the number of their planes during an attack wave.

 

edit: signed up to the test even though i do not like the old carrier playstyle (though i did buy the Saipan because everyone was saying how OP it was and i missed out on the type-59 in wot because i did not play mediums at the start)

Simple answer, they won't because they can't.

Hmm, I really like RTS experience that CV give. I treat playing them as a break from 'normal' gameplay (it is specially nice when trying to finish some mission while bored/tired with normal gameplay).

I'm open minded and applied for a spot in the test. Have all CV's except Graf Zeppelin utterly stinks playing CV in its current form so mine is port queens. Like that to change. Lets see :cap_viking:

Depending on what they do with Saipan... I look forward to getting some doubloons back and purchasing a Derpitz instead :Smile_hiding:

I was silently hoping that WG will open up this concept for a reasonably wide BETA test.

It is the right move in my opinion.

My feelings about the concept change are mixed, but we must keep in mind: psychologically most of the changes that puts the individuals out of their comfort zone (the usual "space" in which you feel safe and comfortable) are difficult to handle because the first guts reactions are not the best ones. It takes time to gain understanding and then it is possible to make an educated decision if the change is acceptable or not.

Everyone will have to walk down on this road, faster or slower depending on their personality - there is no way to avoid it.

Just be conscious what is happening and what is the best you can do.

 

Good luck WG and every fellow player on this journey :)

It's worth giving the new mode a try but it looks like it was designed so that you had a carrier mode that you can have on mobile/console and PC. Rather than re-designing the current carrier gameplay so I don't particularly buy into the reasoning they were putting forward. Just say you wanted a mode that was for all platforms.

So far i haven't played a single CV game. With the new format... i won't do either.

Because i think carriers don't belong to a game where ships exchange shots between them.

There are so many things wrong with the concept....

Current carrier play lacks visuals and hopefully the changes will improve that downside.

i think your premise is false from the start. it´s not like "players don´t want to play rts, not interested in cv mechanics, don´t enjoy the playstyle"

you have continually, over years, made horrible decisions and refused to fix basic problems. UI, AP bombs, premiums, economy, etc.etc.etc...

now, after three years you complain "no one wants to play cvs, because xxx", when in reality WG f´d carriers into the ground themselves.

in the early days we had a cv in almost every match, now it´s maybe 1 out of 10 (in VIII+).

 

tldr: instead of completely scrapping/reworking cv gameplay, you should´ve FIXED it.

totally agree you hit it on the head

I enjoy playing CV's, however it is a steep step to be able to afford first one. If I remember correctly, I had to start with few destroyers, and build up experience/credits over three or four ships before I can buy first Japanese CV. Most people wouldn't bother.

 

I disagree that a single CV can change 80% of the game play, as airplanes are slow, and 2-3 enemy ships is average what one skilled CV can sink in a single game.    

Biggest problem I have is the encounter with enemy fighters, as their strength seems to be very disproportionate.
