Indomitable. Just plain bad.

Indomitable. A short review.

 

This CV has entered into a game in a state that beggars common sense. It has 2 strike options, compared to 3 which all other CV's get. And those strike options are purely based on fire and RNG. You have to hope you set fires, which have, as we all know been heavily nerfed. You have to then pray your hard earned strike isn't just repaired instantly as you have to go all the way back and start again. You can't AP citadel like Enterprise and IJN CV's casuing large damage numbers that are hard to heal back. You can't cause floods as you've been given no torps. Instead? You get underwhelming DB's and rockets that struggle to pen anything in your tier and above. And on top of all that. Fire Damage in theory is 100% heal-able.... meaning you just tickled BB's and maybe hurt some cruisers, but any with heal will still be ticking easily for minimal gain and lots of effort.

 

Meaning what? You have to hope RNG is in your favour as you lack any alpha and serious strike power. In 24 games, I worked dam hard to even struggle getting respectable results. Compared top everyone's fav broken CV Enterprise the gap between influence and value is shocking enormous. I have NO idea what WG's spreadsheet showed but all I can say it was a spreadsh*t they must have been reading. 

 

However. I actually think this is how CV's should be. Strong with team work, needing patience to play and knowing limitations of the ships, your's and enemies inside out. CV's SHOULD be no more threatening that Indomitable or the RN CV line as a whole. But WG set the bar to a stupidly high standard with the likes of Enterprise, Hakuryu, Shokaku and Saipan. That means the Indomitable, a meh ship can only be considered bad to it's counter parts. It's has absolutely NO edge over Kaga, Graf Zepp, Saipan or Enterprise. The silver CV's of the same tier are also all better than this.... this thing. 

 

Game results and comparison to Enterprise to just see how huge the gulf is between the 2.

Also BoW. Don't even bother replying and derailing this thread unless you can prove your points. In fact go on. Show us all your results with this ship.

Shouldn't be. The rockets are mediocre and bombers are your usual RNGfest.

FWIW I'm very appreciative of the low-down on this thing; as a Brit (albeit a geographically inconvenienced one), I'm always tempted when a new RN thing comes along, so I'm grateful for people helping me avoid making a mistake and buying her.

 

Probably means I'll get her in a gamble crate next Christmas, but still...

Heard rockets arent great, and bombers can be somewhat questionable (think they are regular level bombers and not the hybrid bombers arky gets).

 

Probs can still touch dem doe.

No. Measly damage compared to the big hitters of it's tier.

I can dig that; I must admit, part of my interest stemmed from the Fury in the marketing image (which, obviously, she doesn't get).

Actually it has Kaga rockets which isn't a new mechanic and Kaga rockets are objectively bad. 

 

Then it has UK bomb dispersion which is unreliable and therefore bad. 

 

It is objectively bad and not new mechanics. 

Where do u even get that idea from

I asked you to present evidence if you were going to come in and derail this thread. Go get some or do one.

I know why "unicums" resist ships with new mechanics :  because like all other players they must go through a learning curve.

 

You do realize CV mechanics don't actually change from CV to CV?

That there is something called "transferable skills"?

79% WR with 80 k dmg. It is division play or very lucky teams. OR this 80 k is all in right places. 

 

Calling ship with 79%WR bad is....bold :)

Read what I put in full. It's bad, because it's SO much weaker than it's counter parts. And take into account I'm playing this CV as a super Unicum CV player.

I know. But your WR in definitely OP ship is 83% and in this 79%. Somebody would expect bigger gap between total crap and one of most OP ship in game. 

 

If you were not carried by team you proved she can carry and wing game. More than some of your other ships from other classes.

Former actually.

Quite sure @Bear_Necessities wouldn't want to play this thing solo.

Also if we look your other t8 cv stats she is not at the bottom not by wr or by dmg. Infact your Kaga, Saipan, implacable, lex have worst or similar stats. 

 

Your only better CVs are AP ones  :)
