  1. Why not Remove strafe but add additional fighter squads and fighters in hangers. For example:: If a IJN carrier has 2 squads of 4 now , give her 3 squads of 4 If US carrier has 1 squad of 6, give her 2 squads of 6 Without strafe a increase fighters will create a playstyle of chess giving more direct air cover to ships. I do believe they should also allow fighters to be able to disengage fighter combat to attack torp and bombers, with a huge penalty to defense. Allowing air cover to properly protect ships. I also think strafe should be change to attackk ships not planes to destroy AA mounts, secondary mount and torp tubes. I love and hate strafe. Even if you know how to use it properly. Its a dumb mechanic, one split sec of lag or missed strafe and you will pay the rest of the match. Its to stressful and doesn't lead to fun gameplay. Also what would happen if they removed strafe but allowed you to release all your fighters at once having multi squads out, but say they added fuel to the mechanic where you have 5-10 min of fuel to each squad.
  2. USS Alaska - Dev Blog!

    AA needs a buff and I say up the damage of AP shells to represent the super heavy shells the Alaska carried. Mark 8 was of considerably higher quality; in fact, it "was by far the most powerful weapon of its caliber ever placed in service." I hope the shell dynamics are diffeent than any other ship. Heavy by weight = good falling penetration at long range slow velocity fastest reload for caliper I would like to see18 sec or less If the Alaska is super squishy that fine with me if wargamming gets the shells right. I would even be ok with AP only if they give it Heavy Shells.
  3. [-TAB-] is looking for new members

    Joined these guys 3 months ago after reading a hilarious exchange in general chat between them and a player with a huge ego. There sensarity of sarcasm with respect and integrity reminded me of past groups. After debating between many invites I accepted [ -TAB-] invite I had in my box from a few days prior. I wasn't disappointed , the crowd is so diverse from x-vets, college students, Canadians, Australians but the best part is everyone can take a joke and most nights your laffing hysterically. With the great environment the leadership is top-notch getting a bunch of hooligans in order and providing the resources to successfully execute plans of action in clan battles is priceless. I joined a clan to try and work towards Stalingrad but what I got was much more. What I found were players that new the mechanics of the game and working together to implement basic mechanical knowledge of the game led to new gameplay and strategies. The top things I gained from joining TAB ->I progressed my gameplay something I did not think was possible even being a beta player. ->I have constant teammates now. That's right I almost never play alone anymore and I generally hate people. It's Amazing! ->Come on start the tearducts now if you havnt figured out the last thing I gained joining TAB it was friends. Sailing with these guys is like being intoxicated at 4am looking for food and find a place open. When it's good, it's really good but when it's bad....... It's still pretty good!

    Closest non CV was Mr_Hurbert in a Atlanta with 96 planes https://na.wows-numbers.com/ranking/?order=max_planes_killed__desc&p=4

    For me: BEST = 71 -> Full AA spec LYON Recently= 42 -> Helena aft&bft Both were in double carrier matches
  6. It wasn't a AA div it was a AA spec Kidd in a div with a Cleveland and Kutsov not AA spec. If we did a AA div it's usually with 2 kidd/akizuki with a Kaga. CV can't spot caps because his planes are decimated by DD they don't know what to do LOL
  7. Worcester

    Ones your spotting gone Worcester advantages just disipates. Play with some good DD friends people cry OP but it's really the ultimate team friendly glass cannon.
  8. I was div up with the Kidd that match. The Kidd is AA spec . Twice that match I remember the Kidd saying "He's dropping on a AA destroyer" laffing. He Holds fire and then lights them up with DFAA. We run AA div all the time with CV but not that match he just brought the Kidd out and op targeted a AA Kidd. There not many AA destroyers and when you run them it's so much fun against a CV. They don't know what to do when you have 2 AA destroyers and they can't spot caps LOL
  9. Best build for the Richelieu

    When a CV one shots you I don' want to hear they are overpowered or anything. The rich is one of the few boats I have a weird capt combo. For it's tier she has very good AA and long-range 7.2 km. I know it sounds crazy but I run Manuel secondaries and Manual AA with aft and bft 19 point captain. Why it's so balanced on this ship it' makes it awsome. 2 biggest weakness to BB are DD and CV, on avrg a regular Rich secondaries are ok but when fully spec aa and manual secondaries it turns rich into great at everything not the best but number 2 in every category.
  10. LoL you make it sound like the ship so op the planes are made or titanium and the secondary's shoot gold. Let's be honest anything can happen in this game but cruisers with defensive fire the AP bombs are a waist and USN anything is highly resistant to AP bombs and DF and AA of a spec cruisers will shred planes even a Kidd will. They are rare but they exists. My AA Rich with manual AA took out 1 1/2 squads before they reached me and the other squad on departure that's 2 1/2 squadrons. A AA des will decimate the planes before it gets near anything. The US new cruiser will be even better.
  11. CV player who play CV and play her say its balanced (Enterprise is still king) Non cv players scream bloody murder You know what I am going to do on release day of the Graf Zeppelin? Play the new tier 8 Cleveland AA spec: with manual fire and farm the new clear skies and watch most the new graf players fail. She is not a easy boat and people don't relies they want to release the Graf the same time the usn light cruiser line is coming out. That line is going to be aa minotaur on steroids with defensive fire as the cherry lol. If BB don't want to go aa spec fine then stay with the cruisers and the usn range will be big no fly zone. Yes if you get a low teir with no aa wow 1/20 matches you got the short straw.
  12. Its even more specific than that I have done test on all tier 8 + BB against Graf AP bombs The 2 most specific countries are German and French all Tier 8 ++ BB can be onshotted but the French have amazing AA capabilities if spec and can negate most damage if AA spec. IJN is mix you will get great hits but amagi is slim = less bombs, Izumo is fat = great target but armor is weird with turrets so great damage but not usually one shot potential. Yamy is perfect to one shot if sitting still or bow tanking. Target superstructure. RN Armor configuration and slim size of the ship make it a less desirable match up. USN BB are wasted attempts its armor to ap bombs is amazing\not worth the time and AA. Its a waste of planes now below tier 8 - perfect AP bomb targets; so new mex and Colorado are tasty targets. So 1/3 of tier 8+ BB can be one shot, 1/3 can be moderate damaged by ap, and 1/3 of those are almost immune and undesirable targets. The limited scope of this should show the over all flaw to this. Just because one nitch can be one shot a huge portion are almost immune DD, and most cruiser, some BB. A smart Graf capt will usually hold ap bomb till a German or French BB messes up, AA cruiser depart, the BB sails off or bow tanks all those thing should be punished its proper game play.
  13. OMG, just turn people. That all you have to do. It will negate most damage. Don't get me wrong Graf might get lucky even turning but most cases it works to negate a one shot yes you will still get hit because there are 18 bombs falling On top of that turning prevent most players FROM MANUAL DROP 3rd American BB armor deck take ALOT less damage. Last it has limited hangers and is 2nd last in air support right above lex Btw the most basic thing to do to negate CV is placement behind AA cruisers or any cruiser with DF. Now I understsand people displeasure with being one shot, but its not as much as in testing and it only take place when they are usually driving in a straight line or stop bow tanking both equal easy manual drop. Yes you can auto click but auto click doesn't get as many one shots. On top of that, most one shots are German and French BB because of armor configuration. If your CV cant provide protection and your not near AA support + you have to be a non usn BB then thank you for letting the stars a 'line for me to get a good strike on you and if you don't turn is that really my fault. The main issue with Graf is hanger capacity if not smart she will be out of planes after third wave. It's rough being one shot but there are far to many counters in this game to lower the chances of that happening. In test I tried point out one shots and community displeasure but this went on def ears. She is not op in damage she has many counters to her. She just plays a mechanic that will make people rage. Some will love this ship because of it but at the same time you can be neutered in this ship very easily by other CV and smart team play, so at the same time she will make her capt rage just as much. To be honest the strategies you have to employ on Graf is one of the hardest CV to play for this you get a type of gameplay that is also the most enjoying if played correctly.
  14. Let all get one thing straight all cv are about to be fjdjdhdubdhd real hard by US light cruisers massive AA and it looks like Brit DD AA. This should be taking into consideration to. It shouldn't be cv fault for lonely players by themselves with no aa spec to cry murder.
