After his great in-depth review, here is his proposal for a fix.

Great video with lots of numbers substance again.

 

Fara is one of the best CV players, he won "King of the Sea" as CV for OMNI. His proposal would make GrafZ skill-rewarding, while still being fun for everyone.

While the balance changes suggested here are sensible and I agree that in general CVs should be encouraged to target BBs, tier 8 is the worst place to do this due to the huge increase in long range AA power amongst tier 8+ BBs. The number of ships with AA ratings so high that they become invulnerable to equal or lower tiered ships increases dramatically, from just the cleveland at lower tiers, to the NCaro, Iowa, Montana, Missouri, Alabama, DesMoines, Neptune, Minotaur and a number of other ships such as the Bismarck and Chapayev if they have AA specialization, at the higher tiers. Not just that, but there are also no BBs at tier 8+ with AA so weak that they can be struck when sailing in groupings of two or more ships.

This means that tier 8 CVs must focus on spotting and target DDs in the first 12-15 minutes of the game, regardless of specialization. If WG want to make a specialized BB hunter then they should put it at a tier where it is better placed to counter the worst of the passive-BB meta.

 

That all said, this is an excellent video which demonstrates how subtle changes can impact CV play style.

WG wants it to focus BBs. 

His proposal does exactly that, but in a way that still makes it competitive and interesting. 

 

Also WG understands that manual AP drops need to be challenging and rewarding to be interesting. 

But to make them rely on skill and not on luck, they have to be pin-point-accurate and without a delay.

Faras proposal does that, without making them too strong.
