So I just got instakilled with bombs as Buffalo. Not even torpedoes. Bombs.

In the previous salvo I got like 8k or something, then in the next one 45k from 2 bombing squadrons. Is this normal?

You get that crap in german BBs all the time. A lexington can pretty much reduce a FdG to a wreck in one go. Same with Bismarck/Tirpitz. Coming close to a cruiser with DFAA does nothing, because if he's smart he'll send his TBs first, force the escorting cruiser to DFAA and one minute later come with his balanced bombers to wreck you up. And there's absolutely NOTHING you can do to avoid it.


AP bombs.

 

Much balance.

 

Counterplay is real.

CVs are fine.

Rework will make everything better (Reportedly "reworked" Hakuryu's AP bombers can citadel A MONTANA....)

 

etc etc etc.

I had my Gneisenau deleted from full to dead by a CV using bombs.

 

And they wonder why we dislike CVs so much.

A few days ago a Midway brought "balance" to my "Balancegrad" in one go... I guess karma caught up to me :D

 

I however mainly see this issue with my KM BBs. I usually play as close to the enemies as possible (due to poor accuracy and ridiculous HE spam at range). This also means that my team is often lagging behind, offering no AA support.

Last time my Buffalo got damaged for around 40K from one half squad of AP bombers of lexington.

I shredded his first squad and the second squad was at half health when it got to me, yet I was almost completely eliminated...

 

Which means I support #NoRework #JustRemoveTheClass

...and just got deleted from 50600 (full HP) in my DM. Midway came with 2 squadrons, dropped AP bombs through my defensive AA and killed me on my spot...

Fun and engaging.

Well, skilled CV players told WG that AP bombs are a bad idea.

And since WG always does the exact opposite of what skilled CV players want, they decided that AP bombs were perfectly balanced and ready for implementation.

No joke btw, in some Q&A awhile back they stated that the performance of AP bombs is perfectly fine in the eyes of the devs.

Our Kronshtdadt (or whatever it's written) got deleted from full hp by a Midway few days ago, needless to say he wasn't really happy.  Meanwhile our cv was a complete potato so you guess who won..
