Changes to aircraft carriers:
-New carrier controls are implemented (set to off by default)
-Left mouse click won’t deselect the planes
-If nothing is in the frame, then the frame selected won’t reset
-Esc key will deselect planes (Both carrier and planes locked)
-Alt attacks can be done by both left mouse click and right mouse click
-If you have planes selected with the left mouse click, secondary guns priority can be selected by using the right mouse click.
-Right mouse click can cancel the autopilot
-Tier IV and V will have Alt attack removed
-Fighters can now Alt attack in order to disengage from dogfights
-Carrier planes will no longer return to the carrier if the carrier is sunk after carrying out their last given orders
-The carrier camera view will now show capture circles instead of buoys

 

 

This is not the major CV rework, it’s just the interface change to make it look like the starcraft control interface.

yay Starcraft 

caveat, Starcraft UI is precise but very difficult to the avg gamer and worse for non-moba non-rts players.

I have extremely limited experience in CVs, but I'm glad they aren't forgotten and WG is at least trying new things. From my (limited) time in them, these changes all seem to be positive. Especially the deselecting planes. That always drove me batty.

-Tier IV and V will have Alt attack removed

 

Great, now the CV population will drop even further. New CV players are going to play the T4-5 CVs, and decide that they are not worth it. It is honestly way too hard to hit the small and nimble low tier ships without manual drops. 

I honestly don't even know what they're thinking. Manual attacks are the only things that keep CVs playable, but they decide to remove them "because seal-clubbing is too common". So seal-clubbing in destroyers, battleships, and cruisers is OK, while seal-clubbing in carriers must be stopped at all costs?

I hope I can adapt to it. De-selecting planes sometimes bothered me, but I was so used to it that even pre-planned my button presses before launching the sortie.

 

Loss of manual on T4-5 just means more likelihood of T6 newbie CVs. Mad of WG to make them pay just to appease everyone miffed at the CV veterans seal-clubbing where AA is balanced.

Yes only CV players seal club don't you know that and making BB dodge torps is impossible cause u can drop 1 km away and might hit them with 2 torps and that is unfair and should honestly be removed completely or make torpedoes slower and do less damage and give warning to BB players that CV is targeting you 30 seconds in advance and auto dodge should be standard so unaware players don't get hit by planes while sitting there fighting other ships halfway across the map also BB should allways oneshot DD and CL even from 16 km away easily. ONLY CV ARE SEALCLUBBING STOP THIS MADNESS WG STOP IT RIGHT NOW

To answer your Q yes it is ok to seal club in DD or BB or CL that is skill but when I sink 6 ships in my hiryu do 250 000 damage 40 planes shot down and still lose Hard to other team even though I got first blood from sinking enemy CV that means my ship is OP very OP cause I lost do you understand

No, I honestly don't understand because posts with zero punctuation and grammar are very hard to read. I don't mean to offend you, but you should really try to make your posts a bit more clear. I can't even tell if you're being sarcastic or not.

I have a question about this "ALT attack" for disagaging your fighters against others fighters.  How do you do that%?  I have a Ranger and I've tried this:

 

1. choose fighters 3

2. click on ALT

3. Try to send them at another place

But this doesn't work.  They are still fighting the other fighter.

 

What am I doing wrong.

 

thank you

Hold alt and then click, it should be a strafe out.
