Now some can live in fantasy land and imagine WoWS without CVs, but WG have stated this aint going to happen.  For the benefit of the game all classes need to be balanced against each other, with the average player in control.  

The current CV strike plane groups require no thinking,  you have some planes, take off and drop ordinance on bad guys.  One plane or 12 planes they all do the same amount of spotting, it is only the potential damage that is different.

To add depth to game play, I propose CVs have the ability to launch Light, Medium or Heavy Strike Groups.

This is all for Tier X CVs.  Tier VIII would be adjusted down and Tiers IV and VI would remain in their current mode.  Percentage numbers would obviously need to be adjusted.

Light

  • Two aircraft in the group only. 
  • Spotted enemy only appear on the minimap.
  • Can not deploy fighters.
  • AA is reduced by 10%.
  • Speed boosted by 10%.
  • No F recall.  Planes return to CV once ordinance is dropped.

Medium

  • Four aircraft in the group.  Can only take off with 4, 8 or 12 aircraft i.e. 1, 2 or 3 strikes.
  • Spots appear on minimap and 5 second delay visibility to ships.
  • Can deploy fighters.
  • AA is normal.
  • Speed is normal.
  • No F recall.  Planes return to CV once ordinance is dropped.

Heavy

  • Eight aircraft in the group.  Can only take off with 8 aircraft i.e. 1 strike.
  • Spots appear on minimap and to ships straight away.
  • Can deploy fighters that have an extra 2 planes.
  • Group flys 10% slower.
  • +10% armour in AA.
  • +10 flooding/fire.
  • No F recall.  Planes return to CV once ordinance is dropped.

The CV now has to make a choice between alpha, DOT and spotting.  

  • Bad 1

How about just roll back to old CV codes? BUT take away the ability of strafing and manual controls for ship attacks.  The most a player can do is guide the plane to the target area by way points and mouse clicks. AI will carry the anti-shipping attacks and aerial combats. 

Manual controls of attacks IMO is what caused the CVs so OP and hated at times.

Given some of the CVs do have DD / CL guns, we should be allowed to use them if enemy ships come close enough.
