    Tier IV AA Defense

    Not denying the ship has a lot of nice features. Except AA. Without AA and in a CV environment, she is helpless and useless. Absolutely frustrating to play, and a good reason you rarely see them any more. Focused by a CV player, you can forget it. About the only solution I can think of, is to team up with a buddy that has a Texas or similar ship, play up and ride his hip for cover.

    Tier IV AA Defense

    Yes....but the upgrades slots do not give it any AA, so that is irrelevant. I think giving the CV's the Fighter consumable might be the best option, but as I said, I don't know what the unintended consequences might be requiring tuning. Of course....you could also tune the Hosho, but that's in a different topic. Believe me, I know how to use the WASD hack and it doesn't work very well on a T4 BB....and only marginally better on the other classes. As it is, best option is not to play the ship, and to be hesitant of playing any T4...except the Hosho.
  3. I rarely play my Arkansas B anymore with all the CV's that show up in T4 now. The Arkansas B has no AA...none. Not only does it have no AA.... even if your CV was able and willing, they have no Fighter consumable to drop cover on or near you. Your only option is to request cover and shadow a ship that might have some AA defenses....and that is very iffy. Now, I doubt the Arkansas had zero AA defenses of any kind through its life, but I do not know this for a fact. I would like to request that the Arkansas B, and any other ships of similar nature be reviewed and some adjustment be made for some sort of AA defense. That said, the CV's in this tier could be considered to receive the Fighter Drop consumable for air cover, although that could have extensive consequences based on the fragility of the bombers. It is no fun being a moving target piñata for the enemy CV's with no defense besides maneuvers which are pointless in a T4 BB. I took fourteen torps hits in my last game...actually dodging 2 drops. Used all my repairs and it just wasn't enough. I did almost nothing except try to evade torpedo bombers...and it has been the same for nearly all of my recent games in that ship.
  4. Suggested T8 Ships for Clan Battles? DD: CA/CL: BB: CV: Curious as to what metagame it will drift to.
  5. I'm interested in others thoughts on the effects of the radar changes for Clan Battles.

    You want to get dinged frequently....play CoOp or Scenerio with some of those players. It doesn't matter what happens, if the team loses, you can bet you are going to get dinged for something.
  7. Cossack. I enjoy the ship, was surprised at it being the choice.
  8. Purchased Iron Duke, Queen Elizabeth bundles in Arsenal. Bundle shows a 10pt captain for each....Iron Duke had a 3 pt. captain, Queen Elizabeth bundle had a 4 pt. captain. Haven done the KGV bundle yet.
  9. Thank you for the informative video. I knew there were flaws, but had not idea it was this bad.

    The dangerous road of bait and switch.

    When they did the global nerf to USN guns and the Sims' went from OP to sub par against its then rivals, I went ballistic. I paid cash for the ship and felt cheated. The Yubari was relative garbage and the Gremy was left alone. I understand the reasoning for it, but really don't care. I do not want a game where every ship is equal and everything is hyper balanced. The game needs asymmetrical forces to counter each other and being OP in one area or the other is going to be the price for entertainment and different play styles. Don't get me wrong...the current and past CV scaling has been crap since they overpower everything except another stronger or better skilled CV. Everyone seems to worry about this becoming a pay to win game....well, it and the others always has been that. The company would not exist if people were not paying to win...no one wants to pay for an inferior product they can get just by spending time pushing a button.

    Over Penetration??? wth IS THAT???

    Think maybe long ago, saw an analogy using the VW, but think it was referring to the weight of the rounds.

    The Fundamental Flaws of CVs in WoWs

    Well, +1 to OP. Personally, I'm not having fun testing this crap. As primarily a DD and CL driver, while driving my surface ships I do not have the situational awareness to focus and respond simultaneously to multiple near range (DD)(Planes), medium range (CL,CA) and long range (BB) AND be able to create a meaningful plan of attack. I'm too busy reacting to my exposure and immediate threats to me. I play the game to have fun, even if I'm losing to better players. I do not play games in which I do not have fun. I generally vote with my feet. I have a lot of time and money invested in the game, and I really hope they can come to a solution with which most are satisfied. But, if its not fun...

    Azuma Nerfed

    This looks positive to me. I had gotten to the point where I was buying the Alaska only if it performed reasonably well and figured the Azuma (that was supposed to be the Jap answer to the Alaska(s)) was starting to look like a steel weak sister at T10. Now, I may not need 28k of steel that I don't have and may be able to get it with free xp or coal. Based on nothing but presumptions. :)
