    CV update

    Hermes was NOT fun and comparitively Ranger > Furious easily. AA is good within tier most of the time but playing against T5 ships in hermes was hell; and in a T8 match in furious was a joke. Overlapping AA is very strong but I think thats kind of what WG is going for... especially with RU BB’s coming in; stay together; push into caps together. CV is great at punishing the “snipe from spawn” BB play style, that doesnt contribute as much as an aggressive BB pushing a flank with his team. Maybe overlapping AA could tone down just a tad; but it should still encourage that grouping up, imo.

    CV update

    Update: It's not the worst thing; I like it. sometimes it seems unfair, but at others it's fun. sometimes AA is too strong, and sometimes the DD grief is real. overall i like it. Good job WG; it's not 100% but you're getting there. Thank you.
  3. it's not always a Losing battle; I like to div with a cruiser if I'm playing DD which helps; but caps are now a mid game objective for me. I think maybe if planes had the new radar spotting mechanic that would solve a lot of it. i do think it's just part and parcel of the new mechanics, which will even out later; it's much better than Haku//taiho triple torp dropping us at point blank. but i agree that the DD grief is alive and well; but think of it as part of Nature: they will always look for the path of least resistance and at the moment it's DD's because they are the easiest target. im sure it will get looked at.

    CV rework from a Non-CV player

    I guess my only real problem is the DD griefing has skyrocketed (Pun intended). and that being my favorite class, I am rather off-put by a lot of these changes. if that were to no longer be an Issue; I don't think i'd have so many misgivings about this whole thing.

    CV rework from a Non-CV player

    Thanks for the guide on how to CV. lots of helpful stuff. well then, I'll have to re-buy Lexi and give it another go. Like i said; I'm not in the "This has Ruined wows!!!!1" camp. I just wasn't a fan of all the changes implemented. but maybe its one of those things you warm up to? my exp with Langley and Ranger was less than stellar, so maybe the high tier is better?? I'm not sure since AA is so strong at T6 I cant imagine T8-10 is any less forgiving. guess I'll have to find out; like I said the real positive is WG allowing us to try it penalty-free at the moment before we decide.
  6. first off; let's start with the good: 1. The animations and design are very nice. I love the plane models and the feel of flying through flak and attacking. very well done. 2. Flak looks amazing and feels useful. 3. CV devastation appears to have been curbed, for the most part. 4. the chance to quit CV's and respec captain's for 0 penalty VERY GOOD MOVE WG! THANK YOU! 5. the generous exchange for the players who don't want to keep CV's. now onto the bad: 1. Targeting. having not played the beta; I wanted to wait for a more authentic experience like only the Live server can provide. i found that the reticle does not accurately indicate where the attack run will begin, not to mention the choice as far as load out is gone so in the American side I'm stuck with gimped torps and unreliable attack planes; very little alpha (which was definitely a complaint i had of old CV's who would grief DD's to no avail.) which Segways to the next concern. 2. Damage and targets. the DD grief is still the most viable option to a CV, sadly; the team huddles up to increase AA (which is reasonable) so your best recourse is to attack weak targets like a DD. so that's still the same as ever, no real improvement. 3. Concealment Expert change timing. so the nerf to concealment means CV's are spotted all the time now; further decreasing usefulness. And shifting the game play to passive clumping in the back, games feel slow and sluggish more than usual. 4. AA: although i had listed AA as a positive, it's also a negative, in some circumstances AA is simply *too* overpowering; which isn't completely bad, and can be mitigated, but adding to the issues of a new system can be awkwardly punishing. 5. Multi-CV matches: It seemed like a good idea in theory, but in practice I haven't found it to be; reducing the CV to just trying to attack targets of opportunity and not really contributing to the team's overall success from what I've seen is the end result, and has been absolutely devastating to most DD's especially when focused by multiple squadrons. Overall: overall not the worst thing ever, but certainly awkward. I can't blame the people so off-put by it, that they left. (I don't think that is reasonable, but hey It is what it is.) I don't think it will "ruin" wows for me, simply not something I'm a fan of, and something that is too early to make any real decisions or judgements about. As of right now; there are issues that is definitely undeniable, I think the best course is to wait and see what WG says. i think I'll focus on some single player games and play ranked while i wait to see what comes of this change. I think wows will be fine. keep at it WG you are *Almost* there at getting this ironed out. -Iowa.

    3 day switch for clans

    is that really cheating? seems like an over reaction to a minor thing (to me)

    3 day switch for clans

    can someone explain the purpose? It's to avoid cheating is what I have come to determine from the forums. How even can you cheat cw by transferring? They do realize time is a finite resource Even if you instant change clans any battles you partake in still take time. Its not like you get any more battles or extra time And rewards are by account, Once you claim them that's it. You switching clans changes neither the days it happens on, the rewards you already claimed, nor the potential games you can participate in. it's not like wows didnt have mercenaries before and that option isnt available for clan battles despite being offered on other WG titles. it seems like an arbitrary inconvenience. sometimes you are 1 person short; you have people who can help but this system kinda denies you that; and you miss out on a day; and for clans with busier people who have limited days (work, kids, family, church) this seems like a real [edited]pain when you could get that vital last player with the old rules. it seems alot of people were in favor of this too, but they cant articulate any real reason beyond "yeah screw those cheaters!" I'm asking because i feel like a 24 hour wait (if there *HAS* to be one) would be less of a hassle and cater to any players so worried about this so as to implement this in the first place.
