I did over 3 dozens of "Operation Aegis  " this weekend, and to my surprise, on last one the bots get reinforced with an Amagi... I couldn't believe first time, so here the screenshot.

Did you guys meet an Amagi (T8 bb) in an operation made for tier 6 ) this weekend ?

Its this an bug ?...

This happens when the enemy ships escorting the transport ships arent getting killed in a specific timeframe. Rarely happens tho...

It has always been possible to meet an additional group of battleships there, consisting of Kongo, Fuso and Amagi. I remember seeing them in the Minekaze way back when the operation was open to tier 5 ships. It is fairly common to see them in carriers if your team fails hard enough.

Defense of Naval Station Newport spawns a guaranteed Izumo afaik, so, that Amagi is like a joke compared to that.

It used to spawn only if you got the carrier Romeo, otherwise the enemy team got a Hiryu instead. Since carriers were removed from that operation, Izumo spawns whether you get the cruiser Romeo or not.

I didn't play that op lately, but I bet it's really balanced to let a T9 BB lose on players after they buffed it to get Yamato deck, 2.0 sigma and the most insane pen of any T9 BB until Sovietsky Soyuz arrives. T6 BBs and cruisers absolutely stand a chance against that thing.

To start with - "balance" is a term that only makes sense for PvP. When it's PvP, it's not about "balance" but "difficulty level". Remember Rasputin compared to the t3 ships people are sailing in the Transylvania scenario?

 

And really, it's not like this is WoT where an enemy heavy tank three tiers higher would be hard to even scratch. In WoWs it's mostly just more hp and some more firepower. If you consider that "unfair" then go and count the sheer number of enemies that operations throw at you - that is a much more challenging factor than the fact that one of them happens to be a +3 tier ship.

They could even throw at you a Yamato with Conqueror's heal as the last boss kind of existence and there wouldn't be anything fundamentally wrong with that :Smile-_tongue:

True, but I feel like it's still likely too hard for people to deal with. Izumo is doesn't come alone and it arrives at the very end. Basically, whatever's still alive has to deal with one of the hardest to kill and hardest hitting T9 BBs in the game. It's in my experience rare that teams make it this far, so for randoms I can only imagine how utterly impossible it must be to deal with this.

 

And sure, the scenarios throw tons of enemies at you, but it's easy to see why the spam of crappy ships like in Aegis and in Killer Whale is far less of an issue. T6 BBs can easily mitigate the damage from something like an AP Ishizuchi or a König. Occasional Bayern is a bit harder, but still doesn't do huge damage. Meanwhile good luck with a BB that has overmatch, 2.0 sigma and enough pen even at 20 km to just citadel a T6 USN BB through its bow.

Dont forget yoh have heal circles on that op though and smacking that Izumo was never much of an issue IMO the greater problem was that sneaky push from the west that comes down the map border

Admittedly, I encountered it only once before the most recent buffs and from halfway across the map it basically just utterly demolished my West Virginia that was still near the base. Say what you want about heal circles and this ship not being a problem, but for one, heal circles don't regen health fast enough to help, they mostly make morons camp in them and the Izumo is basically a huge chunk of hp which has almost no farmable superstructure, a huge 57 mm deck that no cruiser at T6 can pen except Graf Spee and unless you get its flank its impervous to AP as well. You can set it on fire and try to torp it, but that's it. Frankly, you would likely give people an easier time putting a Musashi there, because the overmatch difference doesn't matter vs T6, the shells are less accurate, the turret traverse is worse, the AA is T6 appropriate (in case anyone actually tries bring a CV) and the citadel is more accessible. Once upon a time Izumo was a T9 BB with pretty moderate accuracy, AA that could be challenged by T6 CVs and 32 mm deck that could be HE penned easily. Now I guess for coordinated divs that can bring a composition to deal with it it works, but for the average team, this is like the ultimate roadblock with Yamato lite vs T6.

OK i accept that after recent buffs it might have become more of an issue
