and there is a mission for the dragon flags that require 75k of damage done in a CV.

Hope we get some conclusive evidence on this change. I feel like it's going to be bad, and my bigger frustration is how they can nerf the Midway without addressing the Lexington yet again.

7.2 and no French BB's? SAD FACE! Hopefully we'll be testing 7.3 before 7.1 is out too. :D

More duct tape and bailing wire to hold together CVs...

It said public test would start at 10;30pm EST today...  so this evening in about 9hrs.  Is the Public test server already up and running now?

Just remember.

We were told that the WG balancing department is to be trusted and that they know what they are doing.

Dear WG, Why do you hate US CV's so much?

It's not as bad as it sounds. Midways fighters will dominate a Hakuryu's fighters many times. Even an AS Hakuryuu will have difficulty against a Midway if the Midway plays its cards right. They nerf it to Tier 9 so that both carrier's fighters will be on equal ground.

So, a bunch of people who never play CV are going to go to test, play Midway, see their planes get shredded, get owned, and complain about a nerf, even though they have 0 games to compare it to?

Why not? They have just as much experience in carriers as the devs balancing them do.

True, but I think it will do more harm than good in getting us to the end goal.

Like WG actually cares?

 

I've lost a lot of faith with the devs over stuff like this. It no longer surprises me. Incompetence, arrogance (IE: Never undoing a change that was found to be detrimental, stubbornly sticking to obviously bad balance decisions), and an existence in a vacuum of feedback have become the expectation, especially in relation to carriers.

Fair enough. Although if people we're trying out high tier CVs without the contexts of nerfs/buffs then maybe at least the player base could learn something about CV play, rather than going in with confirmation bias price.ed and loaded. But that probably wouldn't happen either.

To be fair people complained about t8 TBs until it went live and became the most feared cv in the hame, again.

Well I agree and disagree with you I agree with what you're saying in if the Midway plays as cards right, but that's the key. What happens Joe schmuckatelli average carrier player goes up against a carrier player of caliber, who spends an awful lot of time playing his or her carriers? How balanced are the Midway fighters at that point?

Exactly, people who don't CV saw a nerf, saw they couldn't CV, and then assumed the t8 TBs were the issue.

The major problem with CV's from my outside looking in perspective is that if you are really good you rule. If you are not really good you suck and get owned.

CV play appears to take a lot of skill to do well. It isn't for the casually committed. Only if WG dumbs down the game play will Joe Shmukatelly have a chance against the Fems in the game - and maybe even not then.
