   Since my life is in danger because I live on a Florida Island that shall not be named I had to get the graf off my chest since I played 77 battles with a 60% win rate ;) not bad. Playing through all that for nothing would make me feel like I wasted 1,155 minutes of my life.

 

So here we go….

 

The Graf is a unique carrier, what I do not want is for her to become a clone. She needs a different play style.

My suggestion give us 2 unique playstyle under one ship. First though we need to change some fundamentals of this ship.

 

1. Increase Armor of the Graf to a Heavy T8 Cruiser, and give it a more significant armor deck

2. Increase secondary range to 7.5KM with a max range of 11.9 fully equipped with captains, flags and modules.

3. HE bombers have a reduced 20% reload time

 4. Increase fighters by 20% Hit points. Why? I know this is playable because I have the equip module that gives 20% survivability.  They do just fine but adding these hit points allows a Graf captain to stock the  module for secondary build and if they do not want to play secondary build then they can put the 20% survivability and get even stronger fighters.

 

Graf Zepp

 

Build A

Anti-Capital ship Build

 

   This  build  can opt to go secondary or go more traditional added fighter survivability. Making the fighter great at taking damage for the strike groups/planes to go on or holding up opponent fighters.  Having 2 torpedo squads to do what carriers do best and Torp capital ships. While still having one really powerful AP squad to cause massive damage on German BB and Battleships in general. This gives massive alpha, while not having dominant air superiority but having still a screens of fighters to buy time and eat AA.

                                                                                        Hanger Holds

2x Fighter 4 planes ,5 with AS                                             30planes

2x Torp  4 planes                                                                 22planes

1x AP   8 planes, 9 planes with AS, Saipan drop pattern    20 planes

 

Build B

 

Destroyer and Cruiser hunter

 

This is my favorite a unique carrier playstyle.  Smaller plane squad equal a faster recharge added to the reduction in reload time by 20% and you get a fire slinger and  anti DD play style  ship. Also the smaller size will equate to less fire started on larger ships per drop but also allowing smart players to space out fires if your bomber can survive that high tier AA. If you decide to sacrifice fighter survivability you can have an amazing secondary build if you want to brave your carrier up close.

                                                                                                              Hanger Holds 

2 x Fighters    4 planes, 5 with AS                                                                         24 planes

5x HE Bombers   4 planes, 5 with AS = 25 bombers  (21 is what she does now) 48 planes

 

 

This gives 2 fun completely different loadouts that appeal to two different playstyles.

 

PS:: 

 

Also I did not want to add this but leave it as a suggestion. Maybe giving the Graf a unique module or plane will make it even more special or rage

 

Fighter Foresight Module = When a fighter wing is attached / escorting a bomber it allows the bomber to see through smoke…

 

Or

Giving Build B a recon aircraft  that is controllable and can see through smoke within 3km of plane and give it only 3-4 charges

 

I leave that as a suggestion because of the rage that could come from it feels strong.

 

 

All together though I feel this is the best outcome of the Graf future. I hope someone takes note and gives us a non-torpedo carrier option and with a new fun gameplay aspect to World of Warships

 

I wanted to get this out before I evacuate Florida and I wish the best to all who are in Irma’s direct path. Be safe and fair seas

Hey you know what fella? forget about the damn pixel ship and get your as* to a safe situation. Serious man, a catagory 5 hurricane is the Boss gonna own wherever it damns feels like hitting. Grab a pile of water and food if you cant make it out of the state and find a solid concrete building with a deep car park or something. Get in there and hunker down NOW.

Goodspeed to ye.

Graf does not need two TB squadrons.

Yeah, and get drowned by the storm surge.

Normally you're smart, I'm assuming the deep car park was to soak up the storm surge and allow the building proper to remain fine.

It's my usual black humour; then again I'm a Canuck what do I know about hurricanes? ;-)
