The AA on the DM is just terrible now even with a full AA build and DFAA. WG why did you take a good AA boat and make it so bad?

It's just very RNG now whether the flak from mid and long range AA hits the planes. Not too frequent if the planes keep WASDing around, but I've found DM is among the most powerful at knocking down straight-line flights.

Main factor is plane speed and fixed AA ranges permit CVs to dodge most flak. However, CV has to dodge frequently or take heavy damage/losses in first attack run. Neither my Midway DB nor Haku TB (each buffed to highest possible HP w/ mods and SE) survive long in DM auras.

Last game I played in DM I shredded everything that came near.  Just using the AA mod and MFAA, utilizing sectors well. After going back and forth I think MFAA is more effective than AFT.

I had one game out of maybe a dozen where I shot down 50 planes, every other game I would be lucky to shoot down 6 or so planes.
