AA spec is kind of a myth to be honest to you. The protection you actually get breaks down to maybe 2 to 3 more dead planes per attack on you. This is also with you doing sector enhancement.  So in the short term it wont really help you. However in terms of attrition it does add up, as long as the cv keeps throwing planes at your ship over and over again rather then finding other targets with weaker aa to pick on.

watched a helena get murdered yesterday by a ryujo after announcing in chat he was full aa spec and wanted to test it.

between rockets and torps and being spotted, he was dead just as fast as any other build.

watching bot squadrons fly right through the summon fighter of the meat cv makes it clear weegee cant or wont allow impactful counters to cv.

Total waste of skill points. First slight buff to inadequate protection will not turn it into adequate, second you will compromise severely in combat effectiveness against remaining 3 classes and your skills will completely wasted and useless in about half of games when you will see no aircraft at all. It's the same with a choice between defaa and hydro or speed boost.

Same or higher tier.. yeah

Have found that it can make the carrier go for the lesser "evil" ship and vs lower tier carriers it can help

It can happen but it is too rare case to be worth the hassle for me. At least in randoms. If CV want me dead he will throw at me many planes as needed. Unless Halland :cap_haloween:But if it works for you...

AA builds only make sense in competetive games where you KNOW you likely face skilled carrier players. And that those carrier players WILL focus you or a team mate near you.

 

In randoms AA builds really pay off in maybe 10 % of battles, and even then they don't pay off big time since the effect of the build isn't that great. The alternative build -- whatever it is in your ship -- is guaranteed to pay off much more often.

Better question:

Does it actually make a difference?

Well, if the purpose of the AA spec is to get you games with no carriers... :Smile_unsure:

AA is a waste of skill points. Spend it on fire reduction or other skills that mitigate CV attack damage.

Sounds like a perfect consumable to invest in. Nevermind a consumable to increase AA defence, use the slot to magically guarantee no carriers :)
