Yeah those CC people exaggerated it so much that now CVs are not being played anymore. Just a couple days after the CV rework I went 4 games in a row without seeing a single CV, that's a fail.
Honestly This game is pretty stale without adding stuff like Carriers and Subs. I was hoping Carriers and subs would deter d-bag BBs that sit back 20k from the fight while their team melts telling the team "they" suck.
The ship type variety just isn't there, there's a handful of ships late game that do a few things "best" that people flock to. Variety is going away in this game. I was never a CV fan but, I like generally that CVs force people to group up and support each other. But no, a few CCs whining so much has made it such that CVs are again not going to be played due to knee-jerk reactions to a few things that should have been fixed. They should have fixed the F key spam and a few things before adding all that crap that amounted to a nerf of every CV.
If they cant figure out how to put in CVs and subs in a meaningful way this game will stagnate even more. The Meta needs to be shaken up every once in a while, people that have a vested interest in the status quo will hinder this game.
