BTW before this is locked for "not being constructive", I think it's actually very constructive.

 

See, I'm not a fan of having useless systems that do nothing. Either make them useful, or remove them entirely. Atm AA is just skill point / module bait for people tired of being farmed, not realizing it won't help them one bit.

Agree. I hate it when DD shoots down the spotter plane on my Des Moines

My Friesland says different as cvs will not come near me and if they do they will regret it.

Wait! if AA is removed how the CV overlords will spot within strike distance those pesky little DDs who sail their AA on? Do you really want to annoy them with the burden of making a turn after spotting?

Yes, let's swap the AA for Harpoon missiles  on DDs which can only lock onto CVs....:cap_cool:

Just do to all DD's what they did to Kleber, increase spotting distance. Ez.

 

Or, wait. Hang on. Wait just a minute here. What an epic idea I've just had! This will blow your minds...

 


Give rocket planes an added ability..  the one developed for subs. Yes, sonar pings. Clearly sonar can't work from the air, but who cares. Call it radar pings.I mean, waiting for smoke to expire is boring, and rework ain't about boring. Just ping those pesky smoke spammers. They can smoke, but they can't hide!

The fundamental issue is that it’s player skill (CV) vs RNG (flak) and constant value (dps). Skill (assuming value greater than zero) beats rng, and skill minimises exposure to dps. Although I’m not sure a form of manual AA or carrier controlled fighter squadron (instead of the consumable) would solve the problem either.

Why not just drop a nuke in the middle of that smoke and send them to hell in vapor form?

It would end it too quickly: remember, it's supposed to be fun for the CV, not end in like a second.

Just dodge :Smile_trollface:

 

DDs need more counters. It’s getting ridiculous. Pesky vermin that prevents BBs from sailing in straight lines

Then maybe an EMP first to disable their dodging ability?

Now you're catching on. An excellent suggestion, sir!

Yesterday I decided I would go and grind the German Battleship line - I have the Bismark, Tirpitz and Scharnhorst - the first through a campaign and the other two as premiums - I decided to grind these the proper way despite having lots of Free XP - so started with Kolberg top earn some XP - first battle 2 CVs. Looked up my AA rating - it didn't have any at all! Even my old St Louis had something - in over 1000 battles in her (I used her to get better!) I have shot down 9 aircraft!

I have 3 T10 battleships. Yet my most aircraft shot down in BBs is 59 planes with Kaiser :Smile_trollface:

 

AA op, please buff carriers

We can surely arrange that, ill just keep pulling unlimited Planes out of my Hangar until you start regretting that statement, you will die before i run out of planes.

 

And thats a fact.

This ^

 

i had a fun and engaging 5 minute game in my Friesland. Fully AA spec for memes, including AA mod in slot 6, all flags and capt skills. Enemy Audacious kindly donated 79 plane kills and what should have been double (!) AA specialist achievement. In the end, he got what he was after. Partly through direct damage, partly through spotting. 

 

It’s not a question of whether a CV is afraid of your Friesland. It a question of how badly he wants you.

Oh but its so much fun making extraordinarily bad CV players who fly into flack clouds rage in chat and report me for daring to shoot down their planes. Still your right the good CV players who know how to dodge are being inconvenienced in their damage farming race and we shouldn't have that.

give the planes a map wide radar, spotting would be too much work, and they would have to wait too long before choosing a new target, so just make the aircraft teleport close to the nearest enemy

As there are CVs who can crap on any ship or DD, there is one DD (player) who can crap on any CV. AA works just fine if used correctly.
