Whomever came up with this ship and made it so damn OP...I wish you many torments in life. Def AA with those tier 9 planes...I may as well not launch planes from my CV when I see them. Instead, I should take the penalty and just go to port and not waste my time.

Rework changes all of that around 1/23/19...

Saipan likely gonna be worthless at T8 after the rework, unless they give it a stupid gimmick again.

Hopefully the rework balances it. Known issue that is intentionally not going to get addressed until the rework at least.

My wager is that Saipan will have either the straight out T10 variants of planes but with planes of six squadrons,  or it will get the T10 gimmick of dual torpedo drops at T8.  Thinking on how ineffective AA is right now,  please let it be the latter.

They haven't announced the premium setups yet, but I am guessing Saipan gets T10 planes in a T6 squad size, with Enterprise getting the opposite T6 planes in a T10 squad.

I REALLY hope they don't do that.  Not that I think you're wrong,  I think its entirely possible,  but that would give them a heavy advantage.  Much faster,  much more durable,  double torpedoes and bombs,  it'd be a different kind of broken then it is now.  

Give her T8 planes with the dual drop gimmick and just two planes per attack squadron as opposed to T8's 3.

No, I meant Saipan gets the faster more durable planes, but Enterprise gets the T10 dual drops and flight size with weaker planes.

OH,  sorry,  missed the Enterprise part.  Kinda like that idea,  actually.
