The UI changes(or some of them) are coming this patch. Balancing hopefully in 1 or 2 patches.

Looks at current battle history... If this is not a CV come back then I don't know what is happening... :great:

Seeing 2-4 carriers pretty much every battle now.

Is there any chance that CVs in the near future (1-2 months) will make a return to the NA server?

 

 

 

No.  This weekend is a fluke caused by CV missions, nothing more.  CVs will continue to be scarce at mid to high tiers and nothing I've seen or read suggests otherwise.

Changing the interface will only be a small part of it.  They need to rework the rewards.  I don't mind the loss of credits at high tier but you can get a high caliber, kill several ships, shoot down lots of planes, and still be about halfway down the standings.

They need to rework the play to help CVs get ahead.  In the near future, all we got is some nerfing and limitations placed on low tier to offset sealclubbing of low AA ships.  Nothing to improve play experience for CV commanders and those on receiving end.

I know this sounds dumb, but what will the CV interface look like post revamp? I hear it will be "Starcraft-like."

I have 3 and I play them regularly (I randomize what I play - I have only 21 ships).

I guess this is a semi-necro, but no, they will never make a comeback with the way things are going right now. Removing alt-attacks from T4-5 carriers to make them useless? Great way to kill off the CV population, WG.

From what I've seen on YouTube pages such as panzerknacker and Best World of Warships Replays, a carrier, in order to make the top of the standings, has to carry more than just her aircraft. She's gotta carry the team she's on as well.

Hear the auto drop got buffed--I intend to try it out, see if it's still viable, as well as the new ctrls in training room. Presumably they'll still be deadly either way in skilled hands.

 

I'm thinking of rebuying Bogue and grinding to Independence--since would love to try Lexington--but it'll be a long grind with 1-1-1 Indy, then strike Ranger with RNG deciding if I get a decent match or a crappy one vs. a Hiryu or Saipan. Doesn't really appeal.

Has WG released any screens yet?

Funny enough the cv I miss the most is the Ranger. Strike ranger can bully every over cv than a AS ranger. I have been wanting to rebuy one to see the changes with ammo buffs. The 1-1-1 can hold it's own against a hiryu but requires a different play style. The only thing that really sucks is the detection range. If I do rebuy one I'll stick my Lexington captain which has CE in it

No they won't.

 

The history of this game after a few months of going live have been 2 consistent things:

 

Nerfs to Destroyers

Nerfs to Carriers

 

WG has also been on a tangent for over a year now of improving AA capability.  When you get on your high tier CV, it's not surprising to see the entire enemy ship roster have:

A.  High AA Ratings

and/or

B.  Access to Defensive Fire

 

It's not surprising to find even the Destroyers have Defensive Fire.  Even Yamato's AA will melt my Lexington's Tier VIII bombers.  CVs will never be common place like they were at launch.
