    Seriously... what is wrong with some people.

    Thanks for this but I really think I am done... for a while at least. I was really enjoying learning and playing CVs (the Lexington in particular) but the level of in game toxicity combined with the attitude of several of the people in this thread have made me decide to give this game up. No one wants to be scorned for doing something they really enjoy and the very clear impression from some of the "old hands" here is that, by playing CVs , I am ruining the game and am therefore worthy of their scorn. So off I go.

    *sigh* Perhaps you should take a look at Ahskance's streams? He is one of the best CV players around and he still has problems with DDs. I am not trying to change anyone's mind, just making a point about a game that is supposedly mostly populated by adults but the in game chat is akin to a kindergarten class. As I predicted instead of a thread about the toxicity of some of the players in the game this thread has devolved, thanks in the most part to the usual crowd, into yet another tedious CV hate thread. That's why I rarely come here. There is no discussion... just people shouting at each other. Life is too short.

    Easily. I have faced a great numbers of DDs in a CV and seen how a good DD driver can kick my [edited]. I have also seen how a bad one is an easy snack. Any other questions?

    Little one... I was one of the beta testers for Falcon 4.0 so... nope. And Mr. Blankenship didn't hire noobs. And if you want to see asshattery try to find comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.flight-sims. on usenet archives from around that time Boy howdy...

    THANK YOU! That one comment has changed my entire perception of this situation.

    First full disclosure. As I am sure some of you have already checked and seen I am far from good in CVs. I am still learning. I picked that match because it showed how, no matter what you do FOR YOUR TEAM people are going to crap on you. No one said anything about the 40kt BB with amazing dispersion the killed three ships but... The funny part of this particular match was, well... see those two ships I blapped? I killed them while the players were busy typing out insults to me. So maybe if people focused a wee bit more on their own game play and a little bit less on regurgitating Flamu and Flambass toxicity they might not be having so many problems playing against CVs. Playing a lot of CVs recently I have learned how not-OP they can be. I have learned how a competent DD player can beat rocket planes every time. I have learned how stupid it is for one CV to snipe another. I have learned how it is almost impossible for a CV to carry a bad team. I have learned CVs aren't about dealing damage but supporting your team... seeing where the push is and reacting correctly, seeing where the holding flank is and helping if you can. I have learned if you are not paying attention to the whole board you are going to get blapped pretty quickly and how picking an island and hiding behind it is never a good strategy. I have learned that the solo BB or CA that thinks he is being clever by going off on a flank on his own is usually the most toxic player in chat when he pays the price. Conversely I have learned that when a team works together by dividing equally, moving to the flanks, staying together and then pushing towards the center a CV is almost useless. My point? Simply that how OP a CV is in a game is directly dependent on how good you are.
  7. Playing some matches in Lexington. During the course of this particular (and other) matches I was/have been called scum, cancer, loser, told to uninstall the game and reported By my own team and the opposition. The results of this particular match were predictable. I know that the accepted wisdom is to ignore chat and move along but my point is the level of anger and hatred is not normal or healthy. Of course the results of this post may be just as predictable.
  8. Top 1-3 in every match but I guess you want me to try out that other Naval game. OK... you got it.

    Combat Mission Confusion

    Finished a battle and saw this... 4 combat Missions I had not seen before. So I went to the Combat Mission screen to see what was up and all I see is this... What am I missing?

    Has anyone not received the rewards from 0.7.9 PTS?

    So I guess we are SOL (So Out of Luck)? Not surprising I guess.

    Rewards always appear in your port after you 1) go to the reward site & 2) click on the appropriate buttons and get told that your rewards will be in your account the next time you log in. Parts 1 & 2 have happened. It's the actually showing part. up that seems to be the problematic part this time. But, as usual...

    Same here, but I wouldn't want to count on WG Customer Service for any help. They are only really good for comic relief. Like 2 days ago after I had earned 2,000 coal through 3 regular containers (2 X 400, 1 X 400, 2 X 400) but was nothing was credited to my Arsenal. I sent a ticket to WG asking them to check. Their response? They want me to send them screenshots of my Arsenal just BEFORE I won the containers, screenshots of the containers I won and my Arsenal right after I won the containers. You just have to laugh at that kind of "thinking".
