  1. The Crew turned into slender men
  2. If your doing randoms AP is the way to go because you get all sorts of ships that are vulnerable to it, but if you ever do any competitive matches just go ahead and bring HE it will do better in the long run.
  3. The biggest factor with american CV's is if you want to do something different from balanced like strike or AS it puts you at a major disadvantage because you lose all your fighters if you go strike and if you go AS you lose the torp bombers causing a huge drop in striking power due to just the fact of RNG from DB's, where as vice the Japanese CV's don't lose anything unless they go balanced which is suicidal for a Japanese CV. Lexington Shokaku Essex Taiho Midway Hakuryu Balanced 1-1-1 1-2-2 2-1-1 2-2-2 2-1-2 2-3-2 Strike 0-1-2 2-2-2 1-1-3 2-3-2 1-1-3 2-3-3 AS 2-0-2 3-1-2 3-0-2 3-2-2 3-0-2 4-2-2 Nobody is saying the american CV's cant be fun to play but when you look at the numbers it just does not even out at all, the biggest defense I hear is that the planes are weaker. and yes normally that is true we can use the example of a fully upgraded Shokaku and Lex without modules. ***All dmg numbers are max value*** Lexington Shokaku Fighters 169-1700-61-63 171-1660-38-70 TB 136-1710-9867 148-1720-8567 DB 140-168-10800 161-1610-4600 As you can see there is a difference however it is not enough to close the gap, if you add RNG into the mix it only gets worse for the American CV if you add the right modules to a JP CV it only gets worse for the Americans. is it impossible to overcome..... no, but the JP CV's are just more consistent and reliable. Even when I play my Midway I have to do the balanced build because its just not worth the loss of other planes, I have to pray to get a lucky strafe run on a Hakuryu's planes and get him/her on the back foot to stand a solid chance. This is could be fixed without destroying the JP CV advantage by adding just one more air group to either an american strike or AS build.
  4. Im waiting for all those brand new tier 8 Brit BB's...... its gonna be a slaughter :D
  5. The maximum bomb damage with HE is 11,100 dmg if you multiply that by every plane which is 18 planes for 3 squads then you get and outstanding possible dmg output of 199,800!? now of course RNG isn't gonna let you do that every time, but when you add that you where a German BB into the mix you are increasing your chances that RNGESUS is gonna roll you snake eyes and wipe you off the map. To be honest though it isn't that hard to hit a Bismark with a manual drop even I did it my last game and hit 12 for 33k. oh and another effective way to hit with AP bombs for good damage I noticed is to make an atom symbol with your planes and manual drop them, that way if the ship turns off they are more likely then not to eat some UBER AP.
  6. I like the Idea! any way to add more choice to the game is awsome. but lets be honest the torps are fine, because even with a manual drop you really dont get much change in arming distance due to that crazy W shape so even if you just cross auto drop on average your only gonna get 2-4 hits doing anywhere from 6k-10k dmg. Those AP bombs though, thats your money a good manual drop can net you 30k easy. you dont need HE bombs.
  7. Its good to see them do this, im not gonna ask for the refund but im really excited to see the change.
  8. I thought it was just the one ship but it has now replaced all my CV's and BB's, i'm thinking my game may have gotten corrupted in that micro patch.
  9. I noticed just a couple games ago in my enterprise the power difference between the 2 ships, and I dont even consider myself a good CV player at all but i was completely trouncing his planes with my weak fighters.
  10. So I get done playing a game, and I come back to the port to find this beauty in leu of my ship...... Now I dont mind a Free ship but I would really like my original ship back in the port now if you please WG.

  12. This is completely ridiculous and it shouldn't have gone this far at all or required a dev to make a comment on the forums about this, all the individual was pointing out was that there is armor that possibly changes in thickness as it goes down from the top of the cit to below the waterline like many other ships in the game. whether it works or not or is historically accurate to a high degree as Octavian posted is irrelevant instead a few of you had to go and insult a good portion of the player base in your contradictory arguments. And with all due respect to all the contradictory people that say is you must take something to give something " NERF FOR A BUFF" or oh "HISTORY NERDS" are trying to control the game or for that matter "P2W" or that is par for the course because it's USN line, its just insane. -Well lets touch on the "history nerd" thing real quick, myself like many others play this game because of its historical aspect, by saying that alone your insulting a lot of people that play this game and that alone makes your arguments invalid because those people are not gonna listen to you... go be a second grade back yard bully if you wanna do that crap, I wont personally listen to your points from this point on. (even if you feel justified by Octavian's post) -The Nerf for a Buff argument will not be entertained considering what happened to the British cruiser Line. no HE but annoying AP (lol) -As for the P2W argument...... some people buy premiums to learn basic concepts because they have some sort of "gimmick" like angling or how to get used to not using your back guns all the time, I had a lot of problems with this particularly, and when I decided to throw my wallet at the screen I bought the dunk which quickly became my favorite ship (575 games in it alone) and basically used that as my trainer ship for the NC class and above... but of course there are some ships that have problems in regards to balancing, but you know what?! a CO's shells will blow a Belfast and a Scharn outta the water if she gets them in the wrong position. -USN line, does it have problems?... yea! but you know what I've worked around its so have many others, as I said above a CO will still spank any one at the right place and the right time. by the way just to throw this out there the META thing is [edited]I brawl in USN BB's..... so whats your excuse? I say get in there and close with and destroy the enemy by fire and maneuver. Overall if you don't like it don't get it, if you thinks its OP freaking focus it down and get on with the game...... Don't irritate people over this a slight degree of historical accuracy is ok its still fun Semper Fi and don't panic it will all be ok Because Ill be there for the LUCKY A no matter her state WILL YOU?
  13. Yea once you get to 8+ the rules change a bit, while battleships at 7 and below are forgiving because of the ships that are around you. The higher tiers create unforgiving circumstances...... LIKE THE FRIGGIN ZAO
  14. yea its a roll of the dice sometimes at low to mid tier american BB's but you just got to hold out and get past the CO. once you do that your home free the NC (accurate but slow trajectory), Iowa (Lazer pointer with right mods), MO (its a freaking MO), and the Monty ( heaviest broadside in the game) they all have great gun handling and are quick ships the only true down side is the are extremely easy to Critadel,
  15. Just wanted to point out a bug I've noticed seems to only happen with the german ships Specifically the tier 9 Freidrich Der Grobe, and that is that the number 3 turret will on occasion make a full turn through the superstructure (clipping through it) even when i'm locked onto a target and all the turrets have rotated on to the target. this is really strange and annoying especially when i'm coming broadside at point blank range. I can recreate this and have a few replays that I can get screen shots of it.
