Hi all, 

have some suggestions for the CVs 

1. Add Smoke bombs consumables to planes to switch the Fighters consumable. One smoke plume that last 30 sec. Pretty good for Clan wars.

2. Airplanes can spot only in front of them! Player must keep the airplane pointing in the ships direction in order to keep him spotted. View area can be balanced 60 degrees to 90 degrees. This should make the CV players choose between roles spot or attack, and @ same time give dds a chance to hide.

 

What do you think?

Game's generally balanced for randoms not Ranked / CB (altho they would have some effect). While probably useful in coordinated environment it would probably be generally useless for random teams, and couldn't be balanced economically as smoking up allies doesn't give you XP or credits. Especially bad since you'd basically have to choose between strike planes and smoke planes, unless it's working as a consumable. And if it's a consumable most people won't even bother.

 

Plus that would have pretty high trolling (make your team blind) potential.

I do like this idea quite a lot (the view angles could be adjusted based on things like crew and actual visibility from the plane in question and so on), but I'm pretty sure it would immedeately be marked as "too complicated for the average player" which is the shortest route between an idea and a trashcan

I think actually using forums to type your forum post would be rather nice

Very good points. It is better then just blind aircraft so they fly into "no fly zones"" and get killed without being able to react.

 

Though such abilities as making smoke will have others DEMAND you use them where THEY want.......but it is still a very usefull ability.
