i dont care if you ban me or not, i am for real suffering. i cant stand this crap cv anymore. it was playible before the "sight" rework, t6 ships just shoots my planes down. andf its almost imposible to play at high tier, atleast add more planes in a sqaudron. 

 

saipan big disadvantage

bad AA

no secondary(which i dont rlly care of)

little amount of figters which doesent do anything

very little amount of planes in a squadron and thats the biggeset issue(getting shoot down by t6 often and cant even get close to a AA cruiser at t7,8,9,10.

And thus getting the PA version falling out of a crate is all but guaranteed...!

If T6 ships can kill your planes in large numbers then the issue sits between your keyboard and the back of your chair.

Well his planes didn't die before the patch apparently. Aa on low tiers didn't change tbh.

Just stop playing CVs all together and pick them up again once you understand that the issue is on you and not the ships you play.

Whilst taking the mickey is the natural response; the following may be of help:

  • Your only other CV (that you've played in Randoms) appears to be a T4.
  • Your first step is to play lower tier CVs until you understand the class better (Ops in T6s are a good way to practice against fairly painless opposition).
  • Once your skills/experience have caught up a bit, then return to Saipan (which, I gather, isn't exactly easy mode for most people anyway).
  • Finally, get some advice from proper CV players, as my skill-set is more about avoiding CVs, and killing planes when I can't evade.

While there is some scope for AA builds with the captain rework, I'd be very surprised if many people are using them - you generally give up too much when you focus heavily on AA.

Saipan needs a bit more cautious squadron management. Shorten squadrons unless you can afford risks in the end game, pick easy targets if possible. 
 

The weapons hit pretty hard though - she is a very fun and interesting ship - just requires a bit more caution

If I could, I would grant you your wish and ban you, simply for the fact that you're playing CVs. But I can't, so I will offer you a few comforting words instead.

 

I can understand your pain and suffering, but so is everyone else. So, suck it up.

As others said, the issue here are you.

 

I wonder tho, are Enterprise players suffering as well? Or is it limited to Saipan players? Ranked went surprisingly well, so I didn't feel the need to play either of the two CVs. :Smile_trollface:

When I bought Saipan years ago discounted on "summer sale" (not that I ever played her) she was OP.

 

That is no longer true.

 

I would like to exchange her for Alasca please. Will take Missouri also.

Even if OP has the wrong reasons for his statement:

 

The dispersion nerf to Tiny Tims hit Saipan pretty hard and it wasn't in the best place to begin with. 

 

I think it does in fact need a bit of love...

Wait a minute, isn´t that already the case?

 

I mean you basicly have AA but in the end there isn´t any difference to no AA

Nope. 
 

And yes there is a significant difference.

You could be right, certainly jumping in it after using Kaga or enterprise is painful.

When bottom tier, the planes disappear so quickly.

 

Indomitable though......

Saipan suffered after sight change really bad.. because of low number of TiTs. 

But tier 6s killing your tier 10 midway planes?? 

 

Thats not the ships fault.. Thats your fault mate. 

An no, even though I have a strong emotional attachment to her and cried a little bit after the sight change, 

when I got my guts to play her again, she can still do really well If you know how to treat her. 

Rockets are a little more lottery now.. thats all.. She was the hardest CV to play at 8.. (not counting Brits) she is a little bit harder than that now.. 

Basically, I wrote all of the above, just not to write git gud and not to be seen as a bad boy

Before anyone even thinks about Buffing Saipan they should take a Look at Graf Zeppelin.

That Ship was already on the Weak Side before the Sight Change because its Dive Bombers are basicly Useless.

Now with the Sight Change its basicly got 2 Worthless Squadrons. Only the Torpedo Bombers remaining to be of any Use.

And Even these are not actually Good but just barely get a Passing Grade thanks to their Speed....

I recently came back to the game after a break of several months. What are these sight changes and Tiny Tims nerf I saw earlier on this thread?
