    AA since 8.5

    AA since 8.5

    More testing, more of the same. less damage, less being efficient, less helping my team. my squads just get wiped out before i even get a chance to do any damage. forget about multiple runs. you only get one run most of the time. so WG in the wisdom took a ton away from CV players and have not given anything back. brilliant.

    AA since 8.5

    its broken, very noticeably. Prior to 8.5, I felt it was good, but not great. They over tweaked it for sure. They are really changing how you have to play CV's now and it is turning into more of a individualistic play. You are practically forced to 'hunt' solo ships or just spot DD's and harass. So now with 8.5 released, the update is: -you spend a lot of time 're-launching' planes as you try to drop and scoot out, which means you are flying to battle most of the match from freshly launched planes. -my planes are even more fragile, even with armor and SE. -more planes get shot down and you do not replenish them quick enough. This forces you to play very cautious as you have to wait for your planes to have a decent squad to launch. -blobs of ships with AA bubbles are the meta now. Good luck trying to get any hits with those groups. If you do, it will be minimal at the cost of your entire squadron. -Still ZERO burst damage capability. -not as fun to play. I thought a few changes were needed for sure, but swinging the pendulum so drastically is not the solution. -dont even bother if you are a T6 in a T8 match, or T8 in a T10 match...mine as well go get a cup of coffee. Planes get chewed up instantly in up tiered matches. Reality is, not sure if it is every going to be fixed and this recent patch does not instill confidence. its unfortunate.
  6. As someone who has started to play CV's again (only tier 6), I was looking for some tips on dealing with ships that have very strong AA. Being tier 6 (both IJN and USN), if I get into a tier 8 match, it is brutal. I am learning to know what ships have AA, but honestly, I feel useless trying to do anything with a tier 8 ship with good AA. Sending my planes in is sending them into a buzz saw. there is nothing i can do. I was hoping for tips/feedback/recommendations from more experienced CV players out there. What i should do, not do, captain skills etc. Thanks TCG

    how to drop torps better

    Thanks folks. I will try that. I appreciate it. TCG
  8. I am just about to get my T6 IJN carrier, but was hoping for some tips on torp drops. Seems like most of my drops, i land one, maybe two, even when i think i have it lined up nicely. any suggestions or videos to watch? I think starting at t6, you can do manual drops (more control?)? Thanks TCG
  9. That was it! Wow...so much thank you for this!!!!
  10. Just started to get started with the modpack. Seem to be having trouble getting the 'Side Panels for BadoBest v1' to show up on my screen. Highlighted it to be installed, but they are not showing up on my screen at all. i miss something? Thx
