  1. I drove the myokos every match for 5 days two weeks ago in order to accomplish the Exeter missions, and I did not find CV's to be a big problem even when singled for air attack. I do not play CVS very much at all. I got the ranger yesterday and the furious the day before. And at tier 6 anyway I really enjoy the gameplay, and also see the limitations that a CV faces. But in general I play other ships, and the only thing that struck me as being wholly awful was one match in the lightning where a Lexington had RDF and just hounded me for 7 minutes straight before killing me. Even then, WG is removing RDF from planes. Maybe at high tiers things are more unbalanced (like they are at tier 4) but right now I think that CV gameplay ain't bad, and neither is CV counterplay.
  2. Man, this reads like you haven't driven a carrier for even a second. You want ships to stealth fire planes from greater than 10 km away? At that point carriers are worthless and should just be removed, which I bet is what you really want at the end of the day.
  3. Tier 4 CVS are very frustrating. The Hermes I find to be somewhat tolerable, but the Langley is just about irredeemable in my book. Haven't tried hotshot, and don't really want to. My advice is to get good at the mechanics at this tier, and the give up on it and either get tier 6 carriers, or just give up on carriers. I'm working on getting the furious and ranger, and will see them if there is any hope for cv's. I like the gameplay, just wish I felt like I was making a difference when playing them.

    These ships actually have pretty similar captain skills, but I will put in my recommendations. The smoke expert is useless. It will not allow the ship to move faster in creeping smoke, and it is very hard for other ships to benefit from creeping smoke anyway. Use adrenaline rush. Personally, I would use BFT over superintendant. That benefits Haida more than Perth, but the extra AA is something, and the dpm boost to haida is very nice. Apart from that, looks good.

    Premium Ship Review #121: Exeter

    Is this gamerblog a trustworthy source? I find this a bit hard to swallow. Either their data must say it is underperforming, or they are just doing the same thing they did with giulio cesare (buffing a good ship after release into op-ness) and we all know how that is turning out. Maybe my dream of tier 6 exeter isn't dead. It may just be reached in the worst way possible.

    Premium Ship Review #121: Exeter

    Ok, we can fix Exeter in 3 easy steps. 1. Make a community enforced ban on people playing this ship with low winrates. 2. Use above average and unicom players to inflate stats. 3. Wargaming moves Exeter up to tier 6 because it is over performing. Everyone's happy. Personally, glad that I can earn this ship, cause I ain't buying in this condition. Glad that Alaska can be earned for free too. I get my goodies without supporting the questionable choices WG has been making.

    Have you sold your Saipan?

    I sold my Saipan and I actually like the CV gameplay (eh, the principal of it anyway, needs balancing) but I wanted doubloons for a lo yang.
  8. @LittleWhiteMouse, what's wrong with the Famous and Historical Monarch?
  9. @LittleWhiteMouse @Lert cool! well, here's hoping for the slight chance that something comes of this.
  10. that's pretty friggen' cool. As for West Virginia... I feel like that's kinda on them for not taking the pulse of the over patriotic American player-base. I can see West Virginia doing alright in Europe, Asia, and Russia where they wouldn't care bout the ships history as much, but if they had taken a decent look they probably would have been able to see this NA player riot coming and model the ship as Maryland to begin with and dodge this whole fiasco. Oh! quick question, do the proposals @Lert makes in the forums get the same WG treatment?
  11. can you elaborate on this please? like, was this sent direct to the devs, or is your submission to WG this thread? If I recall correctly you do have a bit of sway with WG (I think that you had a bit to do with the design of Haida, right?) but do you have their ear to the point where there is even a chance that they will look at your proposals and stop to think about them? Or is this more along the lines of wishful thinking? Anyway, I would be over the moon if they added in PoW! who cares about the fact that I have 4 tier VII RN BB's, there's room for another KGV!

    Songs You Like By Singers You Can't Stand

    I hate everything rush has ever done, to the point that I have the first 10 seconds of all of their songs memorised so I can change the channel when they menace my cars radio. but geddy lee does have 1 good song.

    British Destroyer Agility -- with Numbers

    Huh. Is this a change from the British cruisers engines? I was under the impression that while acceleration is through the roof the deceleration was lacking. Messing around in the training room I counted 20 or so seconds for a Cleveland to go from flank speed to zero when thrown into reverse, but 25 seconds for the similar Edinburgh to do the same. Am I missing something? Edit: Also, for the sake of getting a better feel for these compared to the existing ships, can you add Jervis to the Tier VII list? If it beats Sims at turning or even comes close that would give me a better idea of how these maneuver in context.

    360 degree turret rotation?

    This is great, shows that turrets for L and J classes could rotate 180 in theory. Wonder about Daring?

    360 degree turret rotation?

    @CAPTMUDDXX You are not quite getting me. I think this is a boon for balancing. I am 100% ok with it. I am not complaining. I just want to know if this was a capability of the real ships.
