I have seen more 2 cv games lately in mid tiers, when there are 2 cv you have to start working together so you have multi aa working, call a few ships to join you and tell them why, in cbt and early on there where almost always 2 in game, teamwork is the counter to that

There have been more CV's in general and I think it is because of the ongoing Shipsgiving missions.

I think that is because of the Shipsgiving event.

I drive a lot of light cruisers so bring on more aircraft!  I love it when i am in my Cleveland, Atlanta, or even the Kutuzov.  I love watching the planes fall from the skies in droves as my plane kill counter clicks up

Double CV games are anything BUT rare these days; there are more CV's in game now than I can remember seeing for ... ever.

 

(and as a dedicated DD player, it sucks when people start targeting your favorite ships, doesn't it?)

Seen a lot of 2 CV games lately, likely because of Shipsgiving, (which will end tomorrow morning at the server reset.)

 

Depending on the experiences of new players who took up CVs, and older players who dusted their's off for the events, it may be that the frequency of them appearing will drop off again.

Yeah, I'm kind of annoyed that all the CVs came back AFTER I sold my Cleveland.

 

Oh well, tough luck I guess

Actually you have as many fish in the water from CA's as you do with DD's T8+. The new UK CAs have 8 torps per side, the IJN have between 8 and 10 torps per side, and the USSR has 5 torps per side. All range from 8 to 10 KM. Then add CV torp bombers and you have as much torpedo soup as ever. It just isn't only from IJN DD's.

Yeah, the only counter to a ship is to have teamwork.... do you even play random battles.

Then you have clearly never been in a game with 3 Shimakazes + 2 Gearings + some other random destroyer before

 

You are absolutely right; I have NEVER been in a game with 5 tier 10 DD's.

CVs are the brutally hard counter to DD torp soup (T6+ IJN, T8+ US, and T9-10 VMF usually are the culprits).

 

When there's 5-6 DDs per team, it degenerates into a contest to see who roasts the most marshmallows before having to WASD hax against the torp soup. I think LWM holds the record for 50 marshmallows for 5 minutes of camping lol.

 

Much as some players might dislike it, CVs are needed to counter torp soup. Few push a cap the DD's hiding in. I guess the usual thinking is "I don't want to advance until I know the red DD"s location and incoming torps." Rarely see someone brave enough to say eff it, pop hydro, and charge in because he'll get half the reds opening on him.

cv torps don't bother me, I dislike them because they always spot me seconds before I'm about to fire torps on an unsuspecting ship. they ruin my sneaky runs every time lol
