not sure they do balance like that ,  after all DD's wouldnt be allowed the toolset they have if they were balanced against BB's a DD can throw torps at a BB all game with no risk or cost. of course the solution there is teh BB should have a DD or cruiser screening its not thier toolset to find the DD its a "team" game.

 

and thats the answer for the shima. just like BB;s had to learn to turn and change speed occasionaly. there are some likewise rudimentary things a DD needs to start doing in a CV match esp if its a British CV .

and if the shima refuses to learn any of these adaptions and refuses to timely use one of his near infinte low CD smoke screens. then yeah they are just going to keep dieing . but how many mistakes are you supposed to be able to make for free before you have to pay for them?

The issues from before the rework has come back where you mostly got a big group of bad cv players and a small group of very good, that are deciding the games they're in.

 

And thats the only thing holding the CV rework in "balance" - the hords of absolute useless players in CVs. I play a lot of DDs since the CV rework, it has actually become my most played class. Simply for the reason, that many decent DDs have apperently stopped playing the class, which made randoms very frustrating for me, since you need a DD to spot for your team. Impossible with the hordes of 42%ers in DDs these days, that border hump to get to the CV or sit in the smoke, waitig that somebody spots for them - until they die from a torp.

 

Im drifting. My point: What you see above is so rare, that It honestly has not happend to me yet. Yes, Ive met 3 or 4 super unicums while playing DD since the rework hit early 2019. Not one of them managed to kill me, eventhogh those games were horrible unfun for me. But the quota is 1:100. The other 99 games the red CV is simply no threat for you or he even straight up gifts XP to me via plane kills.

 

The experiance will/would horribly change, once WG allows CVs into f.e. clanwars. The clans with the best CV players would heavily dominate and I think we would see a shitstorm. Might be the reason, WG is so hesitant to introduce them. And if the playerbase would actually capable of l2p on a broader scale, the rework would lead to an inferno, making current T4 hell look like a childrens playground. DDs would actually be unplayable. But yea, since playerbase is the way it is - WG gets away with this rework (which has made the situation around CVs worse as in CVs are now more broken then before, just for the record - but hey, atleast BBs are having more fun now).

I have been on both sides, with DD and CV is hunting me down and myself in CV hunting DDs and dont have problem with that! As i can make DDs life miserable they can do the same to me when im with DD! 
In the current situation the CV is Audacious, which for me is the best CV to hunt and destroy DDs, if RNG is on your side you can deal massive damage with rockets, i have done 20k damage on BBs with them! One game you sh*t on them, next game they sh*t on you! Balance!

Excuse me but who or what s***s on CVs? High tier CVs survive over 73% of the games, unlike any other ship class - and that includes YOLO CVs, that are in the cap at minute 3 aswell as those type, that cant read the matchflow and are getting caught by an advancing fleet, that stomped that flank 3 minutes earlier.

If anything, you just showed, that there is NO balance. Matter of fact: the best CV players survive almost 95% of their games. 95 percent. They basically never die. Also fact: they survive more then during RTS times.

Yes it is. There's a dev blog released where they are testing fighter consumables lasting 90 seconds instead of 60 seconds ... that will definitely help ...

Quote: Patrol fighter consumable available to carrier-based plane squadrons

 

So fighter that are dropped by the CV squadrons and are mostly used to spot DDs ... I have nothing against ship launched fighters (CA/CL/BB).

So basically none other than hoping you keep turning the right way. As the super stealthy torps turn up from nowhere.

I get the feeling WG has moved on from the cv-rework.

I wouldn't call it a feeling but more like a fact. But save for pushing more underwhelming premiums and screwing up balance WG  seems to have abandoned the game.

Oh well, when they push OP subs out, everyone will rejoice and uninstall.

I reckon most dd players would like a game with no radar no hydro and no cv. And maybe 3 haragumos on the enemy team while they field shimas and gearing coz balance. That's sure to test there skills to the max.

First, asashio has to go through this line:

- Possibly CV planes spotting him

- Other DDs

- Radar Cruisers

- Hydro

- Maybe BB has hydro too.

Unless you tell me, asashios constantly torp from 20 km and still devstrike any BB at will. Or what does Asashio do, if there is only Cruisers left? Bend over and die?

 

What CV has to go through when attacking a target:

- Nothing

There is nothing which will stop him from just going where he wants to go.

Yeah, it's a L2P issue. A good BB knows where and to some degree when to expect torps. I'm an ok Asashio player and good BB players make my damagenumbers suffer.

Strange that I have team mates who excel in the ash but not as good in other dds why's that.

Not sure why you would Provide these Screens.

In the First Game we lost. And aside from being a Punching Bag for one of the CVs till you got Killed. The Screen does not really Show any Achievements worth mentioning.

 

The other 2 Screens are even worse.

Because they Imply that you Yoloed a Beached CV whose Team is getting Roflstomped without Resistance....

And got yourself Killed after you Torped the Beached CV.

 

 

The Double CV Game were the GZ Killed you would be a Better Choice.

There you had way more Impact despite it being a Double CV Game.

Don't worry, they're about to nerf Asashio into the ground with the new modules.

Is that really the same thing? As the Asashio is balanced around only being good against BBs. But sure it can also torp CVs. It does however suffer against DDs and Cruisers.

 

What class does CVs suffer against?
