Hi , 

New to the game here and i was wondering since wargaming tries to be historic enough, wouldn't it be nice to have a kamikaze use on the planes.

I am thinking maybe when your cv is sunk your left over planes find the nearest ship and go KAMEKAZEEEEEEEEEE.

Just a random thought i had and wanted to share.

Yes, er, no. We don't need anything to make Cvs even HARDER to balance. Considering Wg isn't even able to balance 2 poor types of plane attacks, adding a third would overwelm them and they'd probably explode.

Japan's Kamakaze doctrine was a tactic of utter last resort and overall effectiveness was relatively minor (3 Casablanca class escort carriers, 14 Destroyers and a number of supply and transportation vessels lost to kamakaze tactics.)

 

I have to agree with lastbutterfly, when wargaming is struggling to balance Torpedo Bombers and Dive Bombers to break the IJN's carrier superiority in game how are they supposed to balance planes automatically targeting and plowing into the nearest enemy ship?

But but but ...kamikaze attack is cool and awesome ,its enemys cv job to spot and take out air, and if the cv is out then the remaining airplanes are flying and doing nothing .

If the cv is k.i.a that means he already was in the wrong spot , or got really unlucky, so the rest of his planes could charge in and do small amount of damage nothing serious tier V.I. for example kamikaze planes should do like 120-240 damge .

example cv dies after half the round to good enemy cv torp run.

11 planes in the air with no command on them they charge to nearest ships and 11x (lets say average 170 damage) + 1870 damage average. nothing to serious and lots of fun to see!!!
