  1. Wait until your CV is attacked.
  2. I feel that while the skill gap was big with the RTS style, it will grow bigger with the new style. We are still at the beginning of testing so there are plenty of potential to go around but right now, if it were to be released, I would find little fun in playing CVs so my Ryujo would end up as a museum ship.
  3. If you did not get an email about the info, you cannot log in. Otherwise you will have to send a ticket.
  4. One thing I have been testing is the feasibility of CV Sniping with DDs and CVs. RTS CV Sniping was annoying but I could fight it because I could move and spot them before they could hit me. With this gameplay, I feel like CV Sniping increased because like I said before. You either attack, attack, attack, or you command the ship. One or the other. Do you focus on the attack while getting attacked or do you return to your ship to move a little bit or put out a fire? Basically if this map was a 5000 x 5000 mile map, then this sort of gameplay would be okay for CVs because you won't have to worry about anything other than submarines. But this game is scaled down so you can't.
  5. If everyone only played CVs, there is potential for longer wait times. Play any other ship type and you will be able to repair them quickly.
  6. https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/common/carriers_rework_starting_pack/ Instructions are all here.
  7. I feel that the skill gap with RTS was big but with direct control, it is even bigger.
  8. I've played only about three games. I don't hate the gameplay, I just don't enjoy much compared to the RTS version. I will eventually learn how to play it but I feel like compared to the RTS, the skill gap just increased even higher and CV Sniping is a much more viable option because players cannot control their ship if they have planes in the air except by the map view. The map view is not enough to turn and dodge enemy ships should they go for only the CV. Right now the only option a CV can take is: Launch bombers Attack Launch Bombers Attack Launch Bombers Get attacked Return Bombers Maneuver the ship Launch Bombers Return Bombers Maneuver the ship Get sunk Players have to choose between either attack, attack, attack, or stop the attack and control the ship. Basically, why is the commander boarding the bombers and not commanding his ship? The main fixes I would add right now are: Ability to control the ship while having planes in the air without the need to switch to map view Having this ability would increase ship survival Ability to abort an attack Having this ability would help with bad attack runs and waste munitions Potential to increase the range and decrease the dispersion of CV secondary guns or direct control This would help ships survive longer against destroyers Bring back ability for planes to auto-pilot with way-points but keep the new style of attack This would help lessen the boredom and the need to fly at full speed to attack enemy shipping It would also help increase the player's observation skill instead of having tunnel vision in attacking a single enemy ship For lower tier CVs, increase the number of planes going on attack runs, using only two torpedoes out of six is... counterproductive and the risk to getting shot down is higher Increasing the amount of attack planes by even one plane would help greatly The "reticle" for attack runs is too basic and not useful, the main guns of other ships can track enemy ships and the torpedo tubes have the grey area that tracks enemy ships, attack planes would benefit from this I will list more fixes I think would benefit this new type of gameplay.
  9. If I could make my Ryujo go a little bit to the left without going to the minimap and distracting me from attacking, I would be a little happy. Right now, playing CVs is like having Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scott, Sulu, Chekov, and Uhura go onto a planet and having the Enterprise fight against the Borg.
  10. It's not a good way of doing it. Sometimes you need to have that third-person view to dodge. Once it goes live, it will not be bots coming after the CV.
  11. Overall I don't hate how it feels. It sucks that I can't scout, it sucks that I can't spot but right now, I literally just cannot move the ship. To make it simple: Set way points Set speed Attack with planes Attack with planes Attack with planes Get attacked by enemy ships Have planes return Turn left Attack with planes Have planes return Turn right Turn left Change speed Attack with planes Have planes return Dead CV sniping got annoying, now it is guaranteed.
  12. It's a sacrifice. You either attack attack or you attack, recall, turn, launch new squad, attack, recall again because the enemy ship is right next to you. It's not a good sacrifice.
  13. The main weakness I see right now in the new gameplay is the lack of being able to control the CV itself. This makes CVs dangerously vulnerable so if they are CV sniped, all the CV can do is have his attack planes return and either attempt to maneuver from the CV sniper or launch another set of planes in a attempt to attack the CV sniper. Issue once again is since you can only control either the CV or the squad, you cannot maneuver your CV to dodge. Instead you can only attack while watching your CV get attacked.

    Something like that. Not enough info on the rework to judge it (other than I don't like it but that is because I learned how to play... on Ryujo).

    Pretty much. Take the safest route, scout and shadow with my DBs, attack with my TBs, maybe defend with my Fighters depending on the skill of the enemy CV.
