FWIW I apologize for making another thread to discuss the same issues we're all dealing with but frankly everyone is so specific about their hate or love....mostly hate that I didn't know where to post this.

T4 CV is OP. Without even trying I can dodge AA. But at the same time you need to survive the entire battle to do any real damage.

T8 CV is stupid. Like.....broken stupid. Get into range to do damage and there is noting you can do that won't make all of your planes die for no other reason that you're in range.

This rework is a total fail. And expect massive repercussions because of it. You made a class that scouts and spots ships and opens them up to getting fire on while at the same time made those planes so weak that they can't survive so people who try and use those ships are going to be pissed they can't do any damage and most importantly earn XP. You done [edited] up WG.

I'm not a CV fan, never have been, but the new CVs need help. I'm hoping that WG is collecting data and does something to the AA per ship, it seems easy to just remove all the planes from the air, like instantly. 

And planes are doing so little damage, and the torps seem super easy to avoid, there is no reason that the AA needs to shred them.

It isnt done being balanced. I expect at least 2 months or more of balancing and changes.

You can't do diddly to the planes.

Another thing, the poor CV is a sitting duck, the CV needs to be able to move independent of the planes, like every other boat. I sank 2 cv's that never moved, they just sat there and ate torps and HE rounds

And that's why I hope they adjust the AA by boat, some need a buff, some need a Nerf

you can still move through the map, you can also control the ship normally if you have no planes in the air.

Atlanta cannot fight midway.

Aside from that, AA is far too strong. This is from a Z52 with zero AA skills. I shot down 17 planes from 2 T10 carriers. An unspecced DD without DFAA has zero business shooting down 17 planes. The planes could barely even damage me. From the other side, as a CV player, you cannot effectively strike without losing tons of plane HP if not an entire wave.unknown-180.thumb.png.0705da93253dcf72d81c2e2d04fa032d.png

yeah, but if you have planes in the air, you can do absolutely nothing unless you recall those planes. And that completely negates any value those planes have and wastes time because now you have to launch a second squadron as that first is just going to fly back to the ship. It's stupid. frankly.

Nice game.

When a tier8 CV, and 2 Atlanta's div up.... you get 1 midway and 1 t8 CV on enemy team....

First reaction to CVs:  PLEASE bring back the old ones.  Totally BORING and LAME now.

What I find irritating, Donskoi is a better AA platform than Buffalo and Cleveland when both are full AA specced. I play the USN cruisers for their AA and it is not as good as other nations now. If you are going to remove AA from USN cruisers then they should receive a gimmick in compensation. Kind of silly if you ask me. I always understood that USN specialized in AA, well I am not seeing it now.

The really unfortunate thing about Atlanta is how bad the 127mm DP guns are, especially considering how quickly planes can leave your strong long range and dive into the awful mid and short.
