So with graf zep almost being finish and back on the market ,

What next in the tube for premium cv how about an Italian one call the Aquila proble have a good loadout of fighters/bombers

next is frence with it FS Bearn a converted Normandie class battleship.

how about mightly Akagi as a tier 8 could be a decent match for a enterprise

and perhaps some the mightly british royal navy cv ships. there a bunch on them like the ark royal.

 

I hope wargaming hasn't given up on the carriers.

WG should focus on actually making CVs fit into the game before introducing more premium carriers, which GZ proved is a balancing mess rn.

I hope wargaming hasn't given up on the carriers.

 

 

1. "So with graf zep almost being finish and back on the market ," Ha, don't make me laugh. All they've done is give it 3 TB's that oh, don't hit DD's, and fighters that still put up no real fight because they are still really tiered higher than they should be still but that's besides the point. Stuka's still have some survivability issues and the reason WG scrambled the release before without what seemed to be truly proper testing - the fact they put 3 TB groups on it and made it OP a hell because of it, resulting in the change to DB's and THAT fiasco. It's nowhere near done.

 

2. "What next in the tube for premium cv how about an Italian one call the Aquila proble have a good loadout of fighters/bombers" - or better yet we not again pull ships from a potential line, that thing depending on view can be 8 possibly tier 9, and just integrate it in a line.

 

3. "next is frence with it FS Bearn a converted Normandie class battleship." again, another potential line, and this Navy actually got a couple made and fighting unlike RU, GER, and ITA that can all field lines, with only Germany and Italy having some physical ships at least started/conversion started.

 

4. "how about mightly Akagi as a tier 8 could be a decent match for a enterprise" - No, it wouldn't be. Premium ships are historical, GZ, even if the tiering on aircraft is wrong, in some truly horrific ways that hurt the ship, is using the right models and all (though the torps thing is a bit of an issue). Akagi when she went down was still using A6M's, likely 2's, maybe 3's, can't remember from the top of my head this second and the B5N and D3A, as I recall those are tier 6 planes, you MIGHT be able to skate a tier 7 version of the D3A if that's even a thing. But it'd be a tier 8 ship then, with tier 6 fighters and TB, maybe 7 DB, against E's tier 7, Lex and Shokaku's 8, and tier 10 AA which there is just no way those planes survive. Even tier 9 planes can't get through at times. Hell, I had a Kaga attacking my Iowa that's still stock hull, 10-12 point captain and a couple modernization's and might as well been playing "Can't touch this". It'd have to be a tier 6-7 premium. At which point IJN has enough other designs and projects the made (Akagi, couple other classes I can't remember names of and the Yamato conversion that was the 3rd of the Yamato's made to a CV) as a partial or full alternate line.

 

5. "and perhaps some the mightly british royal navy cv ships. there a bunch on them like the ark royal." - Considering more than a year ago a vid showed "the ice carrier", and the fact the UK is the last "Easy" CV line in the game (the other 4 nations that can field CV lines have limited planes, far as I know, on Germany can I come up with a full list, and tight on ships maybe needing 1-2 stretches like Germany's BB tree and I think even UK BB has a couple) with also the fact we were told we'd get 2 UK lines, and we haven't gotten a new CV line since launch. And talk was it'd come with the rework, that they desperately need, but haven't heard anything in months, and have had 3 premiums released even though they said that they would only do that after the rework.

 

Also, at this point, it feels less like they gae up on them, more that they are incompetent and don't know what they are doing, running around like chickens without heads, when all GZ needed was all her planes made tier 7, increased her reserve, increase planes per squadron, give it the tier 9 slot to up bomber HP and make it specialized in this way as a DD hunter/killer, maybe cruiser, the ships that would typically be escorting a commerce fleet and was actually built around engaging DD's (hence her heavy secondary guns), while having to burn down BB's and other CV's, not totally relying on Alpha, or, give it 2 HE, 1 AP because you an't tell me you can make AP/HE rounds for ships, make TB's and DB's a seperate thing, but can't program it that say slot 3 is "AP DB ammo" (because planes are counted as ammo) and 4 and 5 are HE, with a difference similar to AP and HE shells to tell them apart till you memorize them.

I would think the British CV line would be a good upcoming candidate for a new line within the next 2 yrs, with Ark Royal possibly being a Premium or maybe Hermes.

 

The British contribution to naval aviation deserves its line like the USN & IJN - WG will have interesting balancing issues with these CVs since early in WWII, they carried obsolete bi-plane attack craft (most notably Swordfish of Bismarck fame) -it wasn’t until later in the war that the Seafires and some up-to-date US aircraft started populating their decks.  They also had armored decks which were good if they came under air attacks, but their air group size was affected w/ smaller aircraft contingents.

Finishing the CV Rework would better than more CVs to try and balance first.  Especially after the Graf.

Which is why premium CVs will be the only CV related thing you're ever going to see out of WG.

 

Gotta milk the playerbase before they figure out that WG has no idea how to fix CVs.
