Who else is tired of being perma-spotted (despite the air conceal buff), perma-set on fire, perma-flooded, and literally everything else that comes with not being able to punish CV's. I for one have had a solid handful of fun games since the CV update came out, most of which involved games where there weren't Cvs. DDs don't push because they can't. Because of that everyone else doesn't push. BB's that sit at the back have all the AA power (go figure). Games that aren't decisively decided, come down to a few CV players at the end of the match and a few helpless souls that still have some health that wait it out until the enemy CVs die. The game got stale since ranked ended, the one last safe haven for this game away from the monotony.
I've been a big fan of this game for the past 2 years since it stole me from World of Tanks because of its brokenness. This was the first update that made the game a struggle to play. First of all, the T10 CV's are broken. When you're able to strike dedicated AA cruisers with ease, punch through DFAA whilst taking one or two plane kills, and have infinite planes... the game is completely ruined from an offensive POV. DD's are literally obsolete now. Why would even any competent player go into a cap if there is going to be radar, constant CV patrols, as well as other DD's there... It now is literally the only class in the game that cannot be punished for stupid maneuvers. Lose a squadron? You have two or more sitting in the hanger ready to go at almost all times. Not to mention the unbalanced nature of consumables now. CV's have unlimited planes but CL's and DD's have a limited number of DFAA charges as well as reductions in AA effectiveness as the battle progresses. CV's lose nothing while other classes lose everything. The amount of 1 v 1 or 2 v 2 CV endgames I've seen is ridiculous because of how unpunishing it is. Prior to this patch CV's had to be smart and tactical to have an effect on the gameplay (other than maybe the T10s). Now the game has become this passive non-engaging sit-fest of ships that don't want to push out of their half of the map and risk getting striked by the CV's. I for one will be retiring from this game until this is fixed.
