The fighter control is weak but the strike power is ludicrously strong if it's not kept under control. The torpedoes have high alpha damage and the German AP bombs can one shot ships more easily than the USN ones. It's probably slightly overtuned in its current state.

 One recent example of the left click meme bombs on a Kii.

Ya know, GZ was screwed up at first. I mean she was barely any good at all.

But boy, the buffs and protein are flowing.

Same happened to my Kii.

And all the people talking about salt. I'd love to see them have it happen to them in match and see their reactions.

Hint: Unless you make it funny for yourself, it's not fun at all.

I think the SHIP is just fine; I believe her strike capability is on the OP end of the spectrum.

Horrendously OP strike power, with a very weak fighter setup, especially when facing an Enterprise throwing fighters at GZ. Poor Lexington though..., only CV that would struggle vs GZ fighters.

Ironically very similar relationship vs Enterprise as Saipan vs Kaga.

All planes do is approach. Maneuver appropriately, launch fighter, target torp bombers, use rudder shift mod. Yeah they get me every now and then, but my guys shoot down their planes. Whatever.

It's hard to say right now. 

 

When left free, its striking power is extremely strong. The fighters are also alright, but not exceptional. 

However, I have yet to see a game of a competent GZ player playing a competent Enterprise/Shokaku player. That would be a good indication of where the ship stands.
