    CV Rework - WG, this is Good!

    I got you beat.....I torped myself once in a CV trying to torp a DD that was going to kill me. I lined him up for the drop without paying attention to where I was and predictably he dodged the torps and I ate four of them and died. It was than I realized....mistakes were made and never played CV's again lol.

    My Great 8 - 24 Box Haul

    I got the 6 box for 30 USD 1. Leningrad Mission (Worth 5250 doubloons or $24.61 USD) 2. Camos 3 Flags 4 Flag 5 N Carolina 6. Flags At the end of the day, I was on the edge of buying the leningrad. I essentially free xped up from a New York to a N Carolina, and a few extras for 30 USD. How do I feel? Eh, I bought some weird Leningrad bundle. lol

    I have no idea about high castle or whatever. I live under a rock and bop baby seals.
  6. Yes to both, but they both work differently. Without MFCAA, you get a +30% buff to AA and it puts the squadron to the top of the list of priority targets. With MFCAA, the DPS buff is +100%. So a 100 DPS goes to 130 without MFCAA and to 200 DPS with MFCAA. Ship AA wiki - http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Aerial_Combat#Anti-Air_.28AA.29_Defense For secondaries, there is no buff, but instead of shooting the closest ship, it shoots the ship you selected. So if a cruiser and a DD are in secondary range with the cruiser closer to you and you want to shoot the DD with secondaries, you have to click the DD for the secondaries to not shoot the closer cruiser instead. If you have MFCSA, you have to select a target for the secondaries to shoot it and you can only select one, no matter the side. Without MFCSA, the secondaries will automatically fire from both sides of the ship at the closest ship, although you can pick on ship further away for the secondaries on that side to shoot at.

    Think about that question for a moment.... xD
  8. Part of the reason may be that as players that know the scenario get their 5 star they stop playing the op as there are no further rewards until next year.

    Wichita

    Wichita look like a great ambush CA, even uptiered. Low concealment value, radar and 8 inch USN AP allows you to when you pick a fight or not.
  10. The other half is a 50/50 split of red and blue lasers
  11. I wonder if Xandier59 over on Imgur will enter his camo from 2016, though would need to become colab with the anime company & artist that controls `Toaru Majutsu no Index' series, as it feature Misaka Mikoto, nicknamed the Railgun, who has electromagnetic powers. Including control of lightning... This would open WoWs to other indirect Collaborations where characters are paired with ships based on names, nicknames and powers as there are so few decent warship animes...

    CV Rework - WG, this is Good!

    You both raise excellent points. There is no helping the people who exist in a continuous state of derp. They are the ones who are a failure in every game mode, in every ship type, at every tier. God bless some of them, because they are really are trying their hardest and they don't mean to disappoint, and some of them are just new players who ground one line too far, too fast and who WILL get better. However, the point @DrHolmes52 makes about the failure only occurring in one place at a time is probably the most critical of all. I know what happens when I try to play a Tier 8 carrier; I've done it in PTS. I fail everywhere, all over the map, and what happens next is entirely unpleasant for my team. I've even done it in co-op in a Langley - I spread myself too thin because I want to support my team, but fail to do anything I'm trying to do well and it all falls apart. I'm just not a Farazelleth or a Femennenly; I can't juggle that many balls all at once. But if I can do JUST ONE THING, if that is ALL I can do, then I can devote ALL my attention to doing it well and maybe even taking the enemy team's (non-CV) MVP out of the game before they wreak their havoc or exert their full influence.

    Finally broke 100 karma

    I find it amusing that when someone remarks on my criticism and calls it negative and unsportsmanlike, they become even more petty and report it. Pot calling the kettle black.

    Finally broke 100 karma

    I wouldn't be concerned. Most people generally only give positive karma if you get really high XP or are really nice in chat. Most people only give negative karma if you're a [edited] in chat (although some people give bad karma for "bad play"). Basically, just play the game and don't be a bastard and let karma sort it self.
  16. One thing I have been testing is the feasibility of CV Sniping with DDs and CVs. RTS CV Sniping was annoying but I could fight it because I could move and spot them before they could hit me. With this gameplay, I feel like CV Sniping increased because like I said before. You either attack, attack, attack, or you command the ship. One or the other. Do you focus on the attack while getting attacked or do you return to your ship to move a little bit or put out a fire? Basically if this map was a 5000 x 5000 mile map, then this sort of gameplay would be okay for CVs because you won't have to worry about anything other than submarines. But this game is scaled down so you can't.

    Fuso is such a beast

    I love playing mine, but hate that I can be spotted from the moon regardless of add-ons. Lol
  18. And knowledge is half the battle!

    CV Rework - WG, this is Good!

    Mostly fair assessment. Although my personal experience on the test server, is that after a fairly brief learning phase (2 battles), well placed torpedo drops take minimal skill. Rockets are straighforward, dive bombers require much more concentration to succeed. It is true CVs i nthis rework, have lost all essential battle influence, they have been nerfed, not a small nerf either, but an almighty squelch under the boots of WG devs nerf. Player ability requirements have been lowered, considerably. perhaps this is a good thing/
  20. I have found that my CV floods fast and burns down fast after being attacked. I suggest being able address repairs without recalling the planes to the ship. AA is very effective but I got attacked by two squadrons and 2 or 3 torps hit. The ship flooded incredibly fast.

    I just want her as soon as I can.

    Prinz Eitel Friedrich Preview

    Id personally rather have the Derfflinger myself but I think it will be interesting to see how the Prinz turns out.
  23. Son of a.......over 5K battles and I never knew this.

    Finally broke 100 karma

    So that is what that number means. Should I be concerned if it is at 0? I like to think of myself as a good person but bad player. During my first 200 games I may have let a torp. or two go that I wish I had back. Guessing that would affect my Karma score.
  25. Initial impressions after completing non carrier tasks -Not be able at T6 to designate which squadrons to attack with AA is annoying and takes some of the action away. -No spotters for the T6 BBs removes another element -Fuso and New Mexico seem to be working ok. Getting Crits on the enemy cruisers at all ranges so that works. -I am a decent IJN DD player who has played the USN side but getting the Farragut to work is MADDENING. By that same token, just played a match where a teammate recorded a Kraken so looks like operator error. -IJN and USN cruisers at T6 are ok. As noted, not being able to designate which squadron to AA is a bit disappointing. -Having the Repair option on the CVs is nice. -I need more time getting the hang of the CV changes both on sea and in the air before I can provide legit comments about them. - Over the past 12 hours, I have had an increase in lag, freeze ups, and flat out getting booted mid match. Not sure if this is due to the increase in tester participation, but it needs to get corrected.
  26. Thanks. Wow, what an odd economy... On another front, hop in a Farragut, go screaming up one side of the map, surprise the enemy CV drivers, and burn them down to the waterline with He and a couple torps, dodging the few bombs /torps along the way. Easy Peasy.
