I'm not sure where in the forum to ask this question, but since the last update I have noticed that the bombs on the bombers of Furious, which have about a 30% chance of causing a fire, no longer cause fires even when you rake an entire battleship from stern to stem. I have hit ships with 8 or more bombs consistently and there are simply no fires started. Zero! Contrast this with Lightening or some other DD that has a 10% chance of causing a fire with signal flags added and the difference becomes staggering. Ship shells with 30 to 35% fire chance almost always cause a fire when they land on another ship, especially with multiple hits, yet the bombs from Furious' bombers do NOTHING. They cannot penetrate or do more damage than rockets, and always over penetrate a cruiser. Even DD's suffer more damage from rockets now than a bomb hit. What happened since the last update to destroy the ability of these bombs to start fires on large ships? What point is there to having a starting fire chance set at 29% and have no fires started? That's idiotic. This needs to be fixed and restored to its former capacity to start fires on ships, otherwise, the bombers on Furious are absolutely worthless. Thanks.
Ok, WG I see you are trying to balance CVs but I feel you are not doing a good job.. I think you have to be more extreme. Here are a few ideas and will make a poll on it.. - 1st fighter squadrons dropped off of planes in flight have to be on ships and they follow that ship for their duration. (fixes issue of planes dropping on enemy DDs like radar.) - 2nd take that old skill you had about planes HP changes per tier of enemy CV. this is how it works: - Option 1 - Takes average tier of ships in match and if it is .75 to 1.24 tier more then CV's tier, the planes get a 10% bonus to health. if more then 1.25 higher then CV's tier it get a 18-22% boost to health. for slower speed and higher AA damages by ships. - Option 2 - Takes average tier of all ships in match and take # - CV tier then multiply it by .165. That number would be bonus health to all planes on CV.. if average is below CV's teir no change. - Option 3 - CV planes or ships in game DPS changes to what planes it is shooting at.. so a T7 ship shoot at a T6 would shoot at a penalty. and a T5 ship shooting at a T6 CV would get a boost.. the farther the tiers away from CV the more penalty or boost. this balances the planes and the ships.. - 3rd reduce number of attacks per squadron to 2 from 3 and take 3rd squardon of HP and add it to the planes of the 1st and 2nd.. - 4th reduce spotting distance of DDs by another 20-30% and no fighter spotting except by ship fighter (meaning no dropping fighters on a spot to continue spotting) - 5th This should be a given if planes are over a person concealed in smoke then the undetected planes can still be heard over the smoke. so they know the planes are waiting for the DD.... - 6th when AA consumable it hit the circle that where the drop will happen will double. this is a benefit for ships with AA and also tells CV driver AA was hit and need to back off or not do as much damage and loose more planes... Because we can not tell when AA is hit or not. also the ship should be green as if the ship dropped a fighter.. - 7th when a plane is shot down in a run to drop bombs/ missles/ torps. That plane is NOT replaced... it is a bonus to the ship for shooting down the plane.. so it might be 1 less bomb/ torp/ rocket or more but for someone who put in the captain skill and/or consumable. it would pay off. - 8th when a plane drops its load then view point slides right up to planes flying over head and that fixes slight shot of invulnerability. - 9th AA Flack puffs are shot in the sectors you have it but they need to explode at different ranges NOT ALWAYS IN FRONT.. as they fly through that zone they explode randomly in the front/ middle/ and far part of zone.. so flack clouds will have depth.. including direct hits on planes(like ships have detonations). will make it easier but detonations of planes can happen.. if you have ideas please type them down and work this out..
So I recently got a 5 star match on the second Halloween mission and got the really awesome Great Gorgon camo. I already have an almost max upgraded Shokaku and read somewhere that the Gorgon camo equipped all the planes with the bat skin. However, when I went to put on the camo, the planes did not have the bat camo. Is this right? Or am I wrong that the planes get the bat camo?
Just had a tier 10 game, with an opposing Lexington. 1 Dive bomber strike completely took a Bismarck from full health to 0 in 1 hit, no detonation, just bomb citadel damage. Sorry, but this is just way too unbalanced for fair play. The problem is the tighter drop reticle removes the RNG from the game for CVs. Not really fair when the rest of us are subject to RNG with every shot. Not saying AP bombs should not be in the game, but they should have the same drop reticle as HE bombs. You should just have to choose whether you want lesser guaranteed damage with the HE splash or risk it for less hits but higher damage chance. As it is, it is just too unfair. OK, done ranting, begin the trolling....
