    How long have you played WoT, WoWP, and WoWs?

    got into the closed beta about a week before the pay-to-participate package went live (bought it anyways... used to love my murmi) been playing less and less lately; got almost every ship line ground out so there's not much left for me to do in-game and the general decline in competence of the playerbase at large is making every match, even at t10, feel like im on a team being seal clubbed by elites.

    Can anybody condemn the sinking of Yamato?

    This was war. You don't leave your opponent even a stick to hit you with even if you know you won't even feel it. This isn't like a football game where you might let the other team score just once so they can at least get on the board.

    So CVs are ... but BBs are ok?

    What is the difference between a CV with unlimited planes and a bb with unlimited shells?
  4. Pit a dd driver with a 30% winrate against a CV driven by a dude with a 70% winrate and the CV will decimate the dd. Pit a dd driven by a dude with a 70% winrate against a CV driven by a mouthbreather with a 30% winrate and the CV will just lose planes. As usual it's not the ship... It's the person behind the keyboard.
  5. Meh, I find most CV players are no better at aiming their rockets than bb players are at aiming their guns and dd players are at aiming their torps. Meaning so long as you're not sitting still for minutes on end chances are the moron shooting at you will be fairly ineffectual.

    USS Hornet Found!

    What's impressive to me is that if there are still organic items like jackets intact on the wreck that means she's gonna be very well preserved. Very little marine life attacking the vessel. Looking at pictures you can see the rubber tires on an airplane tractor still intact even.

    Both of the latter ships are even deeper than Titanic.

    "AA has been nerfed to hell!"

    Yeah... Except I'm not a CV main in the least sense... So it's not me wanting these things for my own benefit. But good attempt at trying to deflect by attacking me instead of addressing my points. Ad hominem responses are the first indication you can't support your own argument.

    "AA has been nerfed to hell!"

    What's the counterplay for a bb being he spammed by a Worcester that's unspotted behind an island? What's the counterplay when you're being stalked by an undetected dd and you don't have radar? Or how about if you are a dd and you get radared? Get teammates to help you? Run away? That's just as valid a solution to plane spam as it is to any of the other things you can't counter on your own. There are many things in this game that have no counterplay; the day CV plane spam becomes the only thing without a counterplay is the day your position will be valid. In fact, I'll even go so far as to say that one of the marks of a good player is being able to set things up so that your opponent has no counter to what you do. The mark of a bad player is letting themselves be put in a position where they can't counter the other player. The mark of a really bad player is coming on the forums and complaining about it.

    "AA has been nerfed to hell!"

    Why? If I'm skilled at driving my bb I can avoid all damage from a dds torps by changing up speed and course. If I'm skilled at driving my Worcester I can avoid all damage from bb shells by ducking behind islands. If I'm skilled at driving my shima I can dodge all shells fired by that bb. If I can negate all damage through skill in other ships, why shouldn't CVS be able to so the same?

    "AA has been nerfed to hell!"

    How is that different than say a couple zaos working together and flinging he at you? Or a couple dds coordinating torp runs on you? Or any other pair of ships focusing you?

    "AA has been nerfed to hell!"

    Had a match in my mino, not AA spec, and got 67 planes. Had another match in my AA spec Des Moines and got 13. Seems the effectiveness of AA is directly proportional to the skill of the CV driver. I have zero problem with this; bad play should be punished and good play should be rewarded.
  13. That was happening before the patch. Only difference is that before the patch the excuse for not doing their jobs was radar and now it's planes.
  14. I've heard this multiple times already... AA is an are effect. It doesn't go for fighters or bombers or any other specific plane. The number of planes within your AA envelope is irrelevant; all planes within your AA envelope will take the same damage. Nor is damage distributed across planes (if you deal 100 damage within your AA envelope, all planes within it will take 100 damage, whether there's 1 plane or a hundred). If you don't know the mechanics well enough to make a credible case for your complaint, the game is better off if you do leave.

    Rockets planes are TOO accurate

    Testinf my kaga in coop, 2k damage per torp on an amagi. The AA is brutal and the planes do pitiful damage. The rework is good in concept imo, but the numbers are wayyyy off for it to be considered a success. Thankfully, it's easily fixed if they want to.
