Ok! Uncle! I give in!

I don't often complain about OP ships, and I shrugged my shoulders initially about the Graf Zep when so many were wringing their hands and clutching their pearls before its release, but, you got me guys, I'm gonna do it:

THE GRAF ZEPPELIN IS NOT COOL

There are other "OP" ships in the game. There have been broken releases a number of times in the past, but none have been "auto win buttons"...until now. A competent CV player with GZ will dominate a game. A unicum CV player almost cannot lose.

This ship is beyond OP and will completely ruin the Ranked season in ways that Belfast can only dream of. There is nothing balanced about it; this ship is pure poison.

I'm not one to overreact. I try to take it as it comes, but COME ON WG, how does this thing make any sense? Anyone?

While I admit the 1/2/1 loadout has very strong strike, vs an equally skilled shok or enterprise, It doesn't stand a chance. Limited fighter capacity and slow bombers... its really only good for seal clubbing in randoms. Last ranked season, it was bottom of the list in WR, solely because it couldn't contest the enemy CVs, which tended to have above average players, something you do not find in randoms... usually.

Thankfully we get T10 at rank 10 to get away from the Zeppelin.

I'm not really bothered by GZ, but T10 ranked ? Pls we had enough of T10 with CW. And T7 once you're rank 1 ? This season will definitely be bad for me

The stats of some of the people I've seen in T10 random recently... makes me sad. I've seen last season people that their first t8 was a Tirpitz, firing nothing but HE... put up better numbers then some of T10 players I've run across of late. That's what I'm dreading...

You're going from the frying pan and into the sun.  The Tier X CVs are powerful a.f.  A lot of my high tier ships are AA Spec, and Midway, Hakuryu still make me worry.

And to turn up the heat, due to CV economy, most likely the only ones that will be running Hak, are good players. (AKA fem, v12, etc.)

I will purchase the GZ and learn CV play in Randoms. Just to be a karma killer. 

No one likes you anyway. :Smile_hiding:

1. See CV in ranked queue.

2. Hit escape key.

(optional) 3. Select Kutuzov in port with AFT, DFAA and signal 

(optional) 4. Click battle, melt all GZ planes within 7.2km

Kutuzov would actually have to get closer than 16kms to the fight to be anywhere near the planes though, not sure I have ever seen that ;)

They're going to be issuing penalties for that, if I read the update notes correctly.

That is incorrect, it is not against the rules to decide not to go into battle. I believe the penalties for someone that leaves battle before they been destroyed or the game is over.

That is true most of the time, but some of us get daring when there's a CV around.

GZ players i know started off nice but, like a narcotic, once the harvest of the salty tears begins there's no way back from the dark side...

Not really. The GZ seems to have fighters made out of the black box. They are somehow invincible?
