I worked the [edited] out of my skills to be a proud 54% winrate Essex, with over 70% winrate recently by focusing totally on Air Superiority.

 

I spotted DDs a lot, spotted torpedoes, spotted ships far away for the team, denied a lot of enemy planes, defending my team. For every 10 battles i played, i won Clear Sky in at least 3.

 

What i'm going to do now? my ship is totally AS-focused, i don't wanna deal with torpedo planes... yes they're good, but i'm happy with my squadrons. I stopped crying about Taiho being OP and made me a great damage denier and team usefulness

 

Now they're trying to making me focus on all these things AND making me care about strikes? Focusing on two things at the same time? Nice... specially now that the AAs are getting so strong, if you enter a DDs AA with DF on your planes are going to die in 5 seconds

 

Great job Wargaming

They are being tested, if people tell Wargaming the change didn't work like they wanted Wargaming will withdraw it. look what happened to the BB bow nerf.

Yeah, but we will have to wait the next patch after the .14 probably

I don't think they will withdraw such big change in the public tests

 

We will have to change tactics, modules, flags, captain skills, will they help us on that? doesn't seem so.

Did that with the BB bow nerf. Besides we don't know all the details yet. maybe those tier VIII planes have a larger health pool, maybe there are plans for higher tier aircraft. There are too many unknowns right now to say at this time. Speculating like this now will just cause more problems then it solves. You concerns are valid but we need to get all the facts first.

One thing that is known is WG is screwing the pooch on everything regarding CV's... US CV's have always been focused on AS as their design, now they are "balancing" them and making it so IJN carriers will dominate again with fighter squad count and strike power. I was going to start getting into the CV scene until I saw their changes, I wouldn't count on them withdrawing it since it is mostly BB's that WG caters to.

BB aside Akashi is right we have no idea what is going to happen in the future and we won't just have a single loadout to use in the future.

BBs are fun to burn in cruisers and destroyers, in CVs, y u no use IJN!!!!!

 

On a more serious note about USN CVs, they should add the new balanced loadout and keep the old specialist loadouts.

 

Besides, Midway is on par with Hakuryu (fewer planes in the sky but more planes to work with, a lot more), but the grind there seems to be a nightmare. 

 

Try using CA/CL to burn dem BBs, it’s fun!

I am worried about the Essex changes (haven't played her since the patch) But as a strike player I'm optimistic.

Anyone else play tier 7 Saipan vs Ranger?

I suggest anyone playing Ranger to shelve it until they fix this crap.

Had THE WORST match I've ever played in this damn game with a Saipan 2/2/0 being completely and totally uncontested. 4 planes against 8 and the Saipan fighters single squadron of fighters took out our single squadron in less than 15 seconds before having his other squadron bum rush our fleet and strafe our Cv's bombers right out of the sky. He lost 3 fighters from that; non from the dogfight.

 

Most [edited] match I've ever seen. I died early. He had all the time in the world to get his torp planes where they needed to be.

Lol, 4/2/2 Haku still there

I think they will do the same thing to the IJN as well.  It doesn’t make sense to only give a single loadout to USN CV and not do the same to IJN.  It will be interesting to see what loadout WG will give the IJN.  But so far I am pretty happy with my 2-2-2 Midway.  Those AP bombs are deadly when hitting the correct targets.  Haven’t tried my Essex yet.  I have a feeling it will play just like my Enterprise with down tier planes which is no big deal for me.
