Manual AA and AFT on the same branch and tier :(  (Im sad because I would of loved escort build MK which gets a bit harder to decide whatt o take...)

 

As well as giving some ships a little bit of AA defense.

Manual AA and AFT were both tier 4 skills before, weren't they?

 

Yes. The new captain skill changes don't change this at all. OP just jumped the gun.

I'm pretty sure you're 100% wrong about that.

With these changes I can now select Manual AA for my Midway without sacrificing any aircraft performance :) (plus CE as well now, it will be so great to have!!)

If you break it down you need 1 skill in each category (1-4) to access each level. It takes 10 skills points to reach tier 4 skills. The captians max out at 19 skill points. That means you'll have 9 points left over on your captians. That's two more tier 4 skills. You could have BFT, AFT, Manual Secondaries, and Manual AA if you max your captian out.

Id considered manual AA for my CVs as well going forward.  Does it work like manual secondaries, ie they only fire if you designate a target for them, or do you jsut get the bonus if you designate a target?

They will fire without target selection, but you only get the DPS bonus against a targeted squadron.

You get a 100% bonus.  It also only affects 85mm and larger AA guns.

This is not true, unless something has changed in the last few hours.

Yeah, I highly doubt that's true. The AFT-Manual AA combo is very popular and not allowing it would be highly unlikely. Plus I've watched and heard a ton of streams, podcasts, Youtube vids regarding the upcoming changes and not a single person mentioned the above at all. And given how controversial it would be, trust me when I say someone would have ranted about it by now.
