    rocket plane changes leave carriers undefended.

    also notice how he always picks the extreme specialty ships Halland ..stay away from it CV , high speed DDs sounds like Kleber and Marceau to me neither with Smoke both with terrible detect and only adequate AA at best . They are just slightly different versions of Khabas .As for how their guns cycle every 2.5 seconds they are only doing what 297 points of damage per hit ? As for the most protected class CVs win that hands down even if detected They can't burn down or flood out anymore and come on Kleber and Marceau are never going to sneak up on anything with their detect. so now what speed demon DD is going to catch up really fast on a 33 knot Midway ?? maybe a Gearing but it's speed is only a couple of knots faster than a Midway soooooo not really gonna catch it that fast Keeps twisting and combining ship stats so it sounds like a DD can go 45 knots have 5.6 detect with guns that reload every 2.5 sec AA that kills all attacking enemy aircraft and 20K torp range that reloads every 60 seconds and torp speed of 80 knots . I want that DD !!!!

    so what tier was that CV ? Add in that you were in the original no fly zone DD and you were top tier so what's the surprise .

    What a silly thing to say ! You and I both know where the cruisers are , and it's not providing DD support . They are hiding behind an island using their radar that should only work line of sight because we all know radar does not work through land , but that's another topic .. Bombs can be avoided torps can be avoided Rockets can at best be lessened If you are lucky . turn left turn right slow down speed up miss most of the rockets (never all ) and you are now hung out to dry and get nuked by Venezia and die . Rockets can not be avoided unless you guess right and the CV player guessed wrong . Point and click Rocket planes never should have been introduced in the first place . I was there for the CV rework Release . It was Horrific . Planes hitting you every 30 seconds impossible to shoot down , CV scoring huge numbers , CCs asking us DD mains to remain calm and not leave the game as emergency changes were being made to try to reign in the terrible release that had just been laid on us . It has taken years to finally get CVs under control so the rest of us can have a decent game . They cranked the Cvs up and nerfed everybody else's AA while giving Cvs RPF which we had been told CVs would never have when it was introduced and I for 1 will never forgive WG for this . Oh and here come the Subs ! Your Cv sits in the back unseen and bangs away at us with no repercussions .Your planes respawn and don't give me any crap about how long and how few you get back . If my torp tubes or gun turrets get destroyed they don't heal . They're gone . Just like everybody elses AA guns . Why don't Aa guns get repaired / respawned . Why don't CVs burn down or flood out anymore ? Used to be that's how you could control them as they could not launch when the Deck was on fire . WG tipped the scales way overboard for the Cvs and they still have the advantage . Once in a great while a DD sneaks in to detect and get a shot at sinking a CV . Maybe 1 out of 50 games ? And the CV directly / indirectly kills how many DDs the other 49 matches ? You're not getting any pity from me . They screwed this game up big time with the CV rework and it's about time they did something to reign them in . Personally I feel they need to make a separate game for the Cvs or at least the opportunity for those that do not wish to play against them to do so . But we all know what would happen then don't we ? If you gave everybody a choice of being able to play a match with no CV in it The CVs would sit in spawn forever waiting for a match while the rest of us are having fun . And that is the point Matches with over powered Cvs in them are not fun and haven't been since the Cv rework . They weren't even fun before the rework but were tolerable due to the few matches you would get against them .

    You aren't even close . The worst change in WG history was the terrible release of OP rocket planes along with the CV rework / AA nerf that we have had to deal with for going on 3 years now . They have finally instituted some controls over those wretched planes other than damage reduction . As for destroyers taking damage how about CVs taking damage . It has been virtually impossible to avoid the point and click rocket planes from destroying all the Dds for way too long while the CV hits you again and again never being at risk and not being able to shoot the attacking planes down with the terrible AA defense they saddled us with . No more crushing the Dds in one or 2 OP rocket salvos anymore
  5. Capt_Q_Sparrow

    CV delayed attacks ?why?

    Finally after 2.5 years of rocket plane abuse that never should have been introduced to the game in the first place they are finally reigning these wretched thing in

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIkTv99UjwI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45vdCfTZU04 plenty more where these came from . This is the reason for CV hatred amongst long term players Obviously you were not around for the Rework release . This is what happened FACT

    You obviously missed the entire point . WG screwed every other ship in the game .when they released the rework . That Vid was typical of what was happening with CV play when the released the rework . Did they fix our AA ? Nope Left it all nerfed out . They mainly dropped the damage that CV ordinance was doing which was clearly indicated by the amounts of damage they piled up in the Vid . Stats this Stats that . Hide behind your stats all you want CVs are the main influence in a battle every match . Win Rate on an OP ship class that they made so easy to play that the potatoes are killing the win rate . Oh and Thank you for reminding me about the Bayern .I always enjoyed that ship . I was in a match when you posted . I got double uptiered and the CV kept me spotted about 75% of the time but what you gonna do ? I dropped a cruiser got a couple of Cits and did almost 100 K damage before the NC clobbered me LOL . I finished 2nd on our team Roma took top honors

    Did you even bother reading the entire comment ? How many more "Cherry Picked " do you want ? He obviously was not around for the CV rework release and I was showing him what a piece of garbage release it was . Read the entire comment section before you run your fingers . I stated that changes that took 2 years to make are now in game but you just want to run tour fingers on the keyboard . I personally know of at least a dozen players who left because of this crap and trust me a majority Hate CVs . Where you probably get your info is WG who is going to tell you that the CV rework was a resounding success and it's all great . Oh Yeah they did say that didn't they . What a Crock ! Statistics can be interpreted any way you wish . The rework they put out was terrible and they still won't admit it .

    see above Never once have I told you how to play your OP CV again making things up . I have a bayern , a gneis , a Bismarck , a Fder ,and a GK . CVs do not appeal to me and I'm going to be busy for a while trying to get my ships in shape with 21 point commanders and will end up with weaker ships than when I started . ( 5% loss to gun reload on all my DDs , changing adrenaline rush to a 3 point skill etc.)

    don't call me son or kid . You are probably just old enough to be my kid or maybe even my grandkid . You have made no point at all . CVs are OP . I salute you for service to your country which is better than most people of my generation would do as the military was highly despised back then . So you were gone when the nightmare that was the CV rework came out . Let me clue you in just a little . What they released on us was akin to the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor . All of a sudden planes had RPF for the first time and they hunted DD players mercilessly . No ship was capable of inflicting enough damage to drop any planes at all initially because they nerfed every other ship's AA capabilities. . You had to huddle together in a DEATHBALL tying to share enough AA to keep the planes away . The once dreaded Des Moines AA became pathetic . Gone was the ability to raise your BBs AA range to 7K and the ability to focus fire on attacking planes and not waste fire on fighters . Damage #'s went through the roof on torp hits / bomb hits / rocket plane strikes . We got saddled with this pathetic sector AA which was completely ineffective allowing planes to strike with no losses pass over you going into weak AA ( remember how sector AA works ) swing around nail you again and usually a 3rd pass all with zero plane losses . Everyone was under siege . High score was always the CV . BBs were getting clobbered Dds just smoked up then ran away best they could . What you are plating now is the watered down version that has taken 2 years to get to this point . So forgive me if I have a severe hatred for CVs of any type as this is what they gave us . Not just a CV rework but the destruction of all other ship's AA capabilities . If there's a squadron of 9 planes which ones do you shoot ? Answer : The 3 that break off to attack you right ? WRONG ! Your AA damage was being spread across the entire 9 plane squadron so nothing ever got dropped . The planes got a free ride home with no damage while returning got healed wash rinse repeat and 45 - 60 sec later they were on you again . High scores for CVs were being reported over 300 K regularly . Has it gotten better ? yes . Are they still OP ? Absolutely ! WG answer for balance was to gradually nerf the damage being done by the ordinance . Then they dropped ship detection by air . The CVs started crying about planes taking damage from AA through mountains and they were quick to fix that . Then they came out with Euro DDs that could start splatting planes which was nice but that meant that those slow smokeless beasts were being detected by planes and decimated by everything else . You missed all of the detrimental crap to everybody else . Many people have quit completely due to the CV insanity . For a while it got so bad that I just dropped the game and went to another hoping for no CV until WG started turning you pink and threatening to destroy your account . So now you see what I am talking about . My KGV which was a full AA build with 7 K range and the ability to focus fire on the planes I clicked ( sort of like manual secondary ) went to 5.2 and might as well have been shooting spitballs . Is there any forgiveness in me for the garbage they have put me and all the other players through ? NO ! While they have dialed down the damage #'s they still have not fixed the CV to DD interaction or the CV to CV interaction . Bottom line If you start with 75 planes then that's all you get . Fighters being a consumable is not right . That allows Cvs to have more planes right along with the respawn . If they want fighters then build them into the squadrons . That puts a stop to the fighter consumable being dropped in one area and the planes continuing on to another spotting even more ships . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SA3RrZssAI check this out sonny .

    more than likely true but I can assure you of 2 things . 1 I would still be alive at the end of the match (more than likely with zero damage) 2 I would not be out of planes . I have no wish to learn more firing angles , distances , tricks or other gimmicks that would take time away from real surface ships that I enjoy playing . Oh Yeah and number 3 . As I would have no idea what I was doing my team would be losing right along with me which would just prove what I have said all along . The good CV wins the bad one loses and takes down the rest of the team . Just played a match with my KGV and held off a Pommern / Riga / and Georgia by myself . It took me a long time to learn how to play like that . I have no wish to put that time in on OP CVs And last but not least stop trolling us with your alt account . If it isn't an alt acct. then take your paltry 552 battles and go away . I have over 5 K in my Fletcher .

    Big difference between T 6 and T 10 and the Bayern AA isn't all that bad BUT the Cv just didn't want you bad enough as it steers like a garbage scow . sounds like T6 noobs to me
  15. Capt_Q_Sparrow

    dont see how people can defend how op cv are

    If a CV wants you dead you are dead . That's OP . No matter what ship you are in EXCEPT for a CV then it's 50/50 because (surprise ) Cvs have good AA .. That is the only FACT that matters . In the meantime while the CV is killing that ship it is never in danger . That is OP . Do not tell me I have to play a ship that I have no desire to play much less reward WG for their Idiocy . I'm already having to reconfigure all my capt skills from WG latest bout of insanity . their recommendations are terrible on most ships . Why you ask ? I'll tell you . They never bother recommending the AA that your ships need to try to keep the Sky Cancer from killing you .
