IJN Carriers - fantastic

Whats funny are the threads that pop up 10 minutes after release by people complaining about this that and everything.  I understand that Essex players are annoyed as its a big change for them and they ground hard to get that far, just remember that you lose all that work anyway with the wipe and then once more at OBT soft wipe.  The introduction of new lines is great and the more we play the more data WG have in order to address the balance.  No way they can please everyone as many have different expectations.


 

In my opinion the IJN carriers are amaaazing, ive just had 5 kills in Ryujo and cant wait to get to the tier 8.    It takes a different style of play, one that suits me in that the CV has to be closer to the action in order to take advantage of the fast turnaround.  Who needs fighters!  3 squads of torps and 2 of bombers and use bombers to spot or distract enemy fighters.  I am at the same time playing US CV with pure fighter loadouts, the only gripe I have is the MM putting my US CV against a team with no carriers!  what do I do, spot? yes but that's soooooo boring, i actually pressed alt tab to surf the net while passive spotting here and there, crap, MM needs to address this issue, even if it means waiting longer in the queue.


 

Some of the comments on the other threads make me laugh - chill out, its only been a few hours!

As I have written Ryujo is the ultimate light carrier. There is nothing this girl lacks and she has more than enough punch to win a permanent port slot. Ryujo is fun. 

 

Shokaku is another big win for the IJN CV line. 

 

Why did you even necro this thread though...

I've only got the Hosho myself but I've taken a liking to her already. a  goodsolid speed means she can keep up with the BBs and those secondaries are pretty mean. her AA is a little lack luster so Ive taken to keeping the fighter squadron load-out on board and close to hand unless intercepting enemy TBs

 

its a risky tactic but Ive taken to keeping her in the main fleet as they advance either in the center to keep the fighters  and TB's closer to hand (if i ever get a good picture ill show) or around 5Km from the  front to provide rapid turn around on the air support.

 

now if only I can get used to manual Torpedo drops and Ill be a pig in proverbial s**t! im getting there but I still need to get used to judging speed better

I guess I had my fun already in the CVs. US is garbage and they make IJN garbage also. Can't wait to hit at best 6 out of 12 torps, because spread is so wide it physically can not hit more. Can't wait for new players get easy hits without any skill because spread is so wide. Can't wait to see high level players doing a slalom between my torps. Also all those times that I hit destroyer with my torps? Will never happen again.  I am indeed so excited for that patch... Can't wait for it.

I know I am over reacting, but... What the hell this is...

it`s fun because carrier gameplay has been completely broken by the 3.1 patch.

If the spread is really like that then they should buff the torpedo damage to the 25k values we saw in PT server.

That still seems like a bad deal all around - takes the skill out of playing carriers completely.

What do you mean by that any way i throught there was only 1 wipe and that would be at the OBT and would be a hard wipe and remove every thing apart form pre order ships/gold.

Skill? We don't need skill! Don't you remember that CVs are like arty? Just point and click then collect  all angry points!

What do you mean no skill, it is HARD to random hit with a shotgun you know.

 

This is not something that I think I will enjoy much.

What's going on with Carriers? The torp spread has been widened so easier to dodge? My Hosho seems to have a pretty narrow torp spread when using manual aiming....

Well, I guess with that spread, it is also the end of IJN carriers, time to like EVERYONE around here: War of Battleships!!!!

 

Was not enough to give the BBs the ability to turn like pole dancers? NOOOOOO You guys Wargaming had to nerf the IJN CVs.... Hope your people who worked their [edited]off for the models and dynamics of the CVs are happy that no f++++ one will use them!

 

Hope it is a beta thing, cause I am considering not following up the game when released with such BS...
