… that we return to only having 1 CV per team at the upper tiers and 2 at the lower tiers.

Much of the reason the player base still view CVs as "sky Cancer" is having 2 or 3  CVs per team. When you can still get torpedo cross drops in a system that was supposed to eliminate that particular tactic then it's understandable why the salt levels have been so high.

People keep saying to wait until things settle down before making snap judgements and going back to the old CV game limits would seem to me to be a way to calm the waters.

Pre-release of 8.0, WG said the goal was to have 3 carriers per team.  Stop and imagine that for a moment.  Let's hope they are re-evaluating that plan.

The changed that even before the 8.0 PTS. Now it is one CV with two occasionally but for now the limit will stay at three.

Yea , but at some point it's got to go back to the old limits. It's not just the DD drivers that are getting tired of being under constant air attack/observation. Like being on a chess board with multiple queens, having more than a couple simply throws the game way off... balance.

I understand the need to handle the increased numbers in the que now and when the RN CVs get released, and all the data that's being gathered is good. At some point we all need to see how the new CVs handle themselves as just one part of the combined fleet as opposed to being the dominating factor as they are in many games now.

I vote for the return sooner rather than later.

...no?

They said their ideal population would be 1 cv per team in 75% of the games.

2 and 3 CVs are simply overflow mechanics for rework hype.

The numbers are dropping now and I have seen no CV matches in tier 6 and up

No, they said their goal was to have a CV presence in every match.

It's a max of 3 CVs because they know everyone was going to try CVs for a while, and matchmaker would probably break if they didn't allow at least that many.  The max will likely be changed over the next few months as the patches come in to tweak the numbers.

No matter what one says on this board, there will always be someone who will find a way to disagree with you.  I've never in my life seen such a bunch of annoying, quibbling contrarians.

Well... you say wrong stuff, you are probably gonna get called on it.

And with the amount of disinformation that has been spread over the last week that's actually a good thing.

The bottom line is that WG is permitting three CVs per side.  The rest is just semantics.

This ^^^

Most game 1 some games 2. This will be the norm after 8.2 maybe sooner depending on the Q.

"Goal" is not the same as "permiting".
