And there we have it:

The recent AA nerf was apparently not enough to pretty up the spreadsheet sufficiently, so WG feel compelled to incentivise carrier play even more, with a special series of directives and rewards.

 

Hooray!

Can recommend the Ark Royal. Nice CV for operations.

Her planes are T4, but 3 torp per attack are nice.

That is a really good question actually, if recent history has taught us anything its that such tables and images can be easily "misinterpreted" by us lowly mortals

Did you really not notice that AA is back to the levels when they first rolled out the rework in January? With Tier VIII plane squads crapping all over Worcesters and Smolensks and everything? Did it completely pass you by that the AA mod 1 upgrade is now useless on basically all DDs and lots of other ships?

Another question is what if one will get mission for already owned ship like Cossack or Bis in my case. Will I get Ark Royal mission? If not what compensation will I get for Cossack, credits or gold? Knowing WG credists, but maybe...  @Sub_Octavian @WG_Lumberjack can you clarify?

No its not, in the first iteration of the AA it was enough to be able to find the W and S keys and you would do a run with like one plane lost from the entire attack wing if even that, I (and I suck at cvs in general and especially at IJN cvs) remember doing multi runs with Haku 4 torper squads again and again without having to take out any other plane type more then once every now and then so my planes have time to return and stack back up, also if you were in a tight spot you just pressed F and hey presto 3/4 of a squad returned safely... Current AA is nothing like the one back then

You can complain, you can curse, beg and swear, it won’t change anything. 

I hate CVs more then anybody else, but complaining won’t achieve much except for not allowing WG to sweep the entire CV reeeeork under the rug. 

 

So, I decided to become active and fight fire with fire. Get yourself a Hosho, put your best captain on it, train like mad in coop, then start giving new and old players the time of their life in tier 4. 

 

I have to admit that i‘ve taken not enough practice games in coop, but still, it works out. 

 

The more people are pi$$ed off and either leave or raise a $hitstorm, the better. 

 

See you in tier 4 dude. ;)

Never! If you want my :cap_money:at those Tiers I need a Coventry, Carlisle or Delhi without delay: not wasting time or money on junk CVs.

Argh but they are so booooring! and DUMB!

 

I've taken to playing the most toxic surface ships that I own instead, almost exclusively, in protest of CVs.

Recent history suggests that missions for ships you already have will give silver, not doubloons, alas.

I imagine it will be; the crucial question is at what drop rate...!

Wot ? My Tier 8 carriers are deplaned 7 minutes into the game because in every attack you lose the entire squadron of planes after the first drop. AA is absurdly strong right now, and there are plenty of ships that are completely untouchable for CVs. If you are left with them you can basically sit back and watch the loss.

3 CV's in a tier 4/3 match?  Getting a bit silly isn't it? It doesn't affect me too much in my Yubari even though that is a mere shadow of what it once was, but seeing these poor sods in tier 3 boats with no AA getting screwed over by experienced and non experienced players of CVs is a bit much.  I thought I was a bad man for playing mid tiers but this current onslaught is ludicrous.  I actually thought WG wanted players to play mid tiers but with this fiasco going on I can imagine more giving up than staying. Just my two bobs worth though.

So is she in the shop yet, and where is the Indomitable? Seen her in action, but watching the vids, one to avoid for me historical ship for the collectors though

Noone knows, back in development limbo. I'd guess she will stay there for some months :/
