    The Fundamental Flaws of CVs in WoWs

    The end is coming
  2. Yeah, looking at the planes barely get into the yellow health zone in that sort of AA is pretty disgusting. I was staring at a torpedo dropped on me in the Harugumo by a Hakuryu and the torpedo indicator didn't even show up until the torpedo was millimetres from my ship. You don't even have enough time to try to shift your rudder if you don't preempt those torpedoes.
  3. This is actually a very valid point. Carriers like the Hakuryu now can just stealth drop a set of 9 torpedoes out of AA range and saturate the water, circumvent plane losses, rearm incredibly quickly and get right back to doing it. The stealth torpedoes are ridiculously hard to spot and dodge to boot. You don't need to be a highly skilled player to spam torpedoes over and over - and even if you fail you have rocket planes as backup. Planes can even fly into pre-rework no-fly zones like the Minotaur, Worcester and Des Moines AA bubbles for a short duration to perform multiple drops. Pre-rework CVs had too much one shot potential, post-rework CVs have the same one shot potential packaged differently with even less counterplay.

    The updated CVs really do need to get toned down a little. Something about a Hakuryu bum rushing spawns with torpedo planes and dropping 3 stealth torp runs in the middle of 3 top tier AA ships is a little off-putting. Especially when a minute later it can do another run.

    Conqueror — British Tier X battleship.

    Telling people to 'focus fire' on anything is just a roundabout way of saying that the ship is too strong (after all, why would you need to focus fire it if it wasn't). The thing is, the Conq isn't as OP as it might seem. Fire damage is nearly fully reparable, so it doesn't stick like battleship AP damage. If you nerf the Conqueror's fire chance then it won't have anything to rely on - it doesn't have USN special AP mechanics or just the raw penetration of the Yamato's guns, or any speed like the french BBs to get around to be able to pen things. Even if does use the 456's its still just a worse Yamato.

    My condolences. I hope that she's lived a long and enjoyable life, and that she passed away peacefully and contentedly. Reading this saddens me quite a bit; especially since I just finished reading Being Mortal by Atul Gawande.

    Drakenred doesn't usually use the reply function; his replies are directed at the immediate preceding post. I think I've been lurking for a bit too long ...

    Wondering if I should copy and paste Issm's comment and start an infinite loop.

    It's alright. Had a small sip in Hokkaido with Royce cherry Marnier milk chocolate (that was pretty good). Not a fan of alcohol in general though.

    Thanks (I did get it in the end - just that there's a keyboard shortcut which flips the image upside down ... which I conveniently forgot). It seems to be part of the Kirin tea drink line - their milk tea is absolutely amazing.

    Spent a whole minute bending my neck and straining my eyes to catch the words written on that suspicious looking IV. Two things I've learnt: 1. I'm not a very smart man 2. My eyesight is now worse than a blind man on the foggy Scottish moors.
