Just finished a game there that lasted a grand total of 1 minute and 47 seconds for me in a Shima.

2 CV's in the game which to be honest has never really bothered me. Until now!!

This player in the Audacity launches his first sortie and takes off 33% the other CV hits me for approx 12% and on the 2nd sortie from the Audacity he kills me.

WG if you are going to introduce new CV's or whatever the hell this was into the game ffs test them first so they are not completely ruining the game.

To clairify i was bobbing and weaving, ducking and diving and wasnt able to avoid any of the incoming rockets.

Lad...:Smile_facepalm: The Audacious can occasionally be seen in the game precisely because WG TEST PLAYERS are testing her now, before British CV's official release.:Smile_Default:

I understand that but it would have been pretty damn obvious on a test server that this is way OP.

Well obvious to anyone except the clowns working at WG

Well, as we know from many previous (bad) experiences, only extensively testing stuff on test server is pretty much useless to check game balance. This is why they have to do testing on live server also, to better gauge the ship/player balance in real game against other players. :cap_old:

With the carrier rework and especially with an audacious on the enemy team you have to play your Shima very different than normal. If you go off on your own, you're dead. I know that is what Shima mains always tend to do, but just a tip: stay within the AA of the fleet in order to survive against carriers.

It seems that my thoughts on play testing are very different from those who are afforded this opportunity.

an assertion that you base on... exactly zero clue about the ship beyond one single brief experience on the receiving end. uh huh... glad you're not one of the "clowns" working in WG's balancing department...

I was with the rest of the fleet for the reason there was 2 CV's

Just to clarify i base that on a stream the other day with 3 WG employees and to be honest they just made complete fools of themselves. 

95% of the questions that were put to them they couldn't answer and loads of viewers ( approx 60+ ) pointed out that one of them in particular looked like he was out of his tits on drugs.

Yeah well @MistaBoo, I do agree with you on that in the current meta playing DD has become quite a challenge due to CV's decimating the entire DD ship class (this is why I shelved my Shima for the time being and am sticking to Atlanta) BUT a couple of temporary solutions that might work do come to mind -> Harugumo, fully AA specced OR Gearing with DefAA. :cap_haloween:

In all honesty i haven't had an issue with CV's until today. DD's have it it their own way for a while now so it was due to happen. 

The point im making is for a plane with Rockets to take out a DD with one pass is just ridiculous. 

You make a good point on AA but even that is hit and miss just now. I have seen me do 13k damage to planes and shoot down 5 and in my Salem the other day i caused 58k damage and only shot down 4.

But according to WG's spreadsheet you are having lots of fun!

True, they sure overdid the effect against DD's and all AA tends to be quite useless now. However with a bit of practice it can be overcome, got 56 planes in my Atlanta against a Shokaku last weekend by using fairly suicidal tactics. But yeeah, that was admittedly more of an exception, much more needs to be balanced out before it's gonna work out evenly for everyone again. They'll probably have to buff close range AA, reduce rocket damage and accuracy (and DD's plane spotting range) AND make it so the planes have to fire their rockets from within the effective area of close range AA. Or some such thingy or other.:cap_old:

HMS Audacity is the first Escort Carrier and weighed in at 5,500 tons and carried 6 Aircraft
HMS Eagle (Former HMS Audacious) weighed in at 45,000 tons and carried at launch almost 80 aircraft

In short, please get the name right.

It's just a joke based on other comments from the Q&A session WG had live a couple of days ago.

Ahhh...I see you and one other didn't get the deliberate mistake unlike most others. 

Audacity as in "how dare they have the audacity to put that in the game" 

In future i will explain fully for you.

Hmmh... When I was still in the army, we used to have a particularly tight-fisted Master (Mess) Sergeant like that. When some of the lads asked for second helping on food. He swore that he had in his possession tables and charts, which could conclusively prove that they could not possibly still be hungry.:cap_wander:

 

Well. We never actually saw them, but began secretly carrying some contraband private rations afterwards. :cap_like:
