Air detection and stealth builds

So it seems like stealth builds are mostly rendered ineffective or nonviable due to the mass spams of planes. Even building for low detection, carriers will routinely spot you without any danger as your AA can't reach them at the ranges they can spot you - unlike before when 7+ km AA could gib squadrons that got careless and it was a full minute before another could be in the air. Also, planes were slower.

This is especially punishing for cruisers which have little to no armor and relies on stealth to get into position before attacking, generally speaking this forces CA to lurk even further back and even DD to stay away from caps. I'm not sure that CV spotting was intended to be able to effectively lock down areas in such a manner?

Maybe an air detection range reduction is in order?

You also must consider everyone is playing CVs, most people are aa specced, and you probably are out alone. The only difference now vs before is the cv cant spot you while doing other things
