    CV Rework Feedback

    The Second Point is due to the fact not many players get to Tier X CVs before they give up. So the ones that are left are either very skilled or very determined. But Tier 8 CVs... Not so much. It is a mix in Tier 8s. Sometimes you get really good CV players. Others may lead their planes straight into a Worcester, Mino or Des Moines. And the latter of the two are the vulnerable ones because they play their cards incorrectly and either lose their planes too early or do nothing the entire match. And as a CV’s team acts as the CV’s shield of sorts, if the CV fails to support their team, then the CV is inherently vulnerable. So in a way, you are correct and incorrect.

    No CV sniping...

    And I found the game rules. This version was from November 24, 2018. So pretty recent. http://legal.na.wargaming.net/en/game-rules-wows/

    But I do see the merit of your point as in theory, it should make the CVs more proactive in actually assisting their team. So... I am sorta neutral.

    Well then. Let us say it gives an advantage to the CVs, knowing that they won't get sniped and thus are more secure. But, it is not the action that is important, but the threat of it. Each CVs must know that they shouldn't be too careless lest they give the opponent an easy CV snipe. That dynamic is gone with the no snipe agreement. Sure, they will shoot the opponent's planes, but they won't be able to pressure the other CV as much in the early game. Yes, CV snipes isn't good but in certain situations, may be used to pressure the opponent into making mistakes. If you pressure the enemy CV enough, you can virtually take them out of the game while supporting your own team. In addition, a no snipe agreement is inherently a no-kill agreement which is a no-no for Wargaming. You can't argue past that point because a no snipe agreement is basically saying "I won't sink you by CV sniping". But the real question is, will it get enforced? Or rather, will WG even notice it?

    Well, I have seen them happen, but they are usually done when one of the enemy team's flanks completely collapses early on. Coordinating with the team, the CV snipes the other. I did help a carrier once once I somehow got through the enemy lines with a Mogami and then I lit the enemy carrier on fire and permaspotted it. I cornered the enemy CV against the shore, and hello torp bombers. I don't know if that counts as a pure CV snipe but it shows the point. A CV snipe must be done with the support of the team or at least done when an enemy flank collapses. This is to reduce the number of planes that get shot down.

    And I wish more people knew that. Because I still see it going on from time to time. In addition, all that focus on the enemy CV diverts attention from the situation at hand. It effectively makes the CV a non factor as the CV isn’t there to support their team. Unless they actually succeed due to sheer luck or skill difference. Even when it “succeeds”, it isn’t close to being an assured victory. It doesn’t matter if the enemy CV is sunk when the rest of the enemy team is knocking at your doorstep. You lose. Albeit, if it is done successfully early in the game, then it is viable. But you would need to be skilled at using CVs. Simply, there is too much risk for something that may help.

    The most entertaining thing in WOWS

    A coordinated double Yamato push that is actually supported by the team.

    Why why why why BB players

    If it is the only thing to shoot at. And the person has decent aim. Maybe RNG will shine this day.

    Colorado CO Skills

    If the Colorado ever gets into mid to brawling range. Honestly, AR isn't required for a Colorado but later on, you will want to get it. Expert Marksman will allow for your guns to turn faster and thus, get the enemy in your cross hairs faster. Albeit, Colorado doesn't have terrible turret traverse when compared to her peers. And Vigilance is iffy as you can preemptively maneuver so that you are not sailing in a straight line which will make it harder for torps to hit you. Honestly, I avoid situations where torpedoes are inevitable. But of course, Superintendent is iffy as well.
