    Poll on the state of CV's

    What data? What Metrics? I am curious what you are using to form your statement. If its your Opinion, then so be it, but if your representing it as fact backed by data I would like to know more.

    it isn't. I play them for events and anytime there is a change so I am versed on what they can and cannot do.

    Yet they have a choice to sail in a straight line or not. A DD has to either hang back and hide in the fleet or be obliterated. I agree that there are things you can do to minimize the risk to yourself, but still, once the CV focuses you, Your dead.

    This comment just smacks of elitism. WG has screwed up plenty of times and had to go back and fix things that were not working as intended or were too powerful. People who are still upset have a legit gripe about the state of gameplay. I bet all the Griping would stop instantly if rocket planes were not in the game. However, taking the most fragile ship and designing a hard counter to them that can destroy them in 2 sorties is poor game design. Of course WG is telling people its not going anywhere, they dont want to invest another 100000000 hours into something that they clearly have no idea how to balance. Money talks however and we have the right to vote with our wallets..

    Your information is out of date.

    Poll on the state of CV's

    1) Yet earlier you said we have to learn and adapt and we have to use our cruisers and our fleet for AA protection??? Im confused. 2) If a DD doesn't treat a CV as a threat you and I both know whats gonna happen. Ask any competent CV player what they focus on first..... 3) Neither the speed, concealment or manuverability matter in the end. The CV knows exactly where we spawn. When his planes do ~160 knots and we can do ~38 knots it wont take them long at all to find us. Your looking at about 3 km range for air detection with AA guns off. You are gonna get spotted and killed if the CV deems it so. There is no avoiding that unless you literally hump AA ships which is again, forcing you to play a certain way.

    OK I will bite. So basically i am playing torpedo picket. Most ships have about ~6km AA guns but those are pretty weak. The close in stuff is better. So if I was safe and say played it 4 KM ahead of my ships then thats the right way correct? What then? most BB's sit back at around 15 KM from enemy. about half the cruisers play like a henri, Yoshino, etc.. (long range sniper) but a few, wooster, smol, do close in work. So thats gonna leave me roughly 2 ships that I can tag along with. That also means that however they decide to play is how I am FORCED to play. If they play the ship wrong, or snipe from range all day I have nothing to add to the team. I am forced to either sit with them and be protected, or go off solo and try to make my own way. You see where the frustration comes in?

    By Adapt you mean sit and do nothing? How does a DD do its job when it has to be glued to the other ships to survive? 95% of DD's have no ability to fight off planes. Are they supposed to wait 6 minutes into the match till planes thin out a bit? Are they supposed to make pre made divs where you buddy up with a AA DD? If someone should be adapting its WG to the fact that they have completely castrated a class to implement another. Nobody wants to queue as a DD just so they can hug another ship until its safe to come out and play. Oh and lets not forget teammates screaming at you calling you every obscentiy because you refuse to spot and cap because if you leave the wooster your gonna get farmed to death in 2 sorties.

    Played in a CV game today in my Shokaku (t8) Ended up with 2 DD's on each team and 2 CV's on each team (both T8s) 4 minutes into the match 3 of the 4 DD's are dead. What sort of experience do you think that made for them? Do you think they felt "that was fun! can't wait to play another game" or do you think they were like "F this, I am done with this dumpster fire game filled with toxic CVs" Oh I know, I know. "git gud" "just dodge" and all that. It doesn't matter. CV + Rocket Planes = no chance for DD's. especially when you have competent players who coordinate. The DD's are done. I am sure someone is gonna come here and post "WELL THEY SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH THE LEMMING TRAIN TO USE OTHER SHIPS AA COVER!!!" Ok... i will bite! If they need to hug a Des Moines or wooster in order to survive, what does that say about the game? What is the role of a DD other than a ship that is basically handicapped? How can a DD fulfill its role if it cant leave the cover of other ships. DD's are not fire support, they are not smoke bots for other ships. They are designed to cap, spot and do torp runs and or gunboat. They are completely impotent with the CV + rocket plane meta. Look, I am not a DD player either so spare me the DD mafia crying comments. Most of my matches are BB's. I hate what the CV has done to the game. More than anything its made the community considerably more toxic. Player apologize up front for playing CV's to both teams and say "sorry about the CV, I'm just doing it for the event" Doesn't that tell you something WG? The only other time I see people apologize is when they play the smolensk. Fix this garbage already
  10. As the title says, Does Karma factor in to the reward chances from loot boxes? I would love to know from any WG source if there is in fact any purpose to karma. Does having a negative rating affect the chance of getting rare items? Thanks in advance!

    How many crates did it take you?

    up to 11 crates now with garbage. No ships. Mostly camos and a little free XP.

    I find island camping is even worse with CVs. Its even beneficial to camp an island vs. a CV because if the planes fly over a mountain and a cruiser / DD is behind it, they will eat AA for about 10-12 seconds before being able to attack because the plane is going to have to turn around and start an attack run from the side that the island is not blocking. Basically islands protect you from Torp attacks and Rocket strikes depending on how tall the islands / mountains are.

    I play all 3 classes pretty evenly and I hate CV's on every platform I have. I could be in an AA specced wooster and I Still hate what CV's bring to the game.

    Every day all you do is come on here and tell people you disagree with they are wrong and they are close minded. You are the epitome of a close minded person. You feel you are right, and everyone else is wrong and if they cant see it, then they are an idiot. Well guess what. These arguments been raging for months. Did you ever stop to think that people have read the counters arguments and yet *GASP* They still disagree!!!! I know its a foreign concept that someone might not fall into line and accept your position as gospel, but hey, its a crazy world we live. How about you discuss something like an adult instead of immediately resorting to calling names.

    No. They don't make sense. They are not fun. They need to change. People are still griping about them many months after changes. They are clearly not right. Perhaps it is YOU who should get over it?
