In under two minutes...  decided to have some fun, but I think this sums it up very succinctly.

Always did love the Johnny Cash cover. My buddies thought it was the original, it's so fitting.

I can give everyone even shorter summary of CVs being in the game and the Reworked CVs in particular...

Couldn't be more accurate about BBs

 

Guys have the biggest gun, auto guns on ships, auto guns on planes, recovery, high HP pool, highest torpedo belt value etc etc

As my most played ship, the beginning of this video almost made me cry. I'll always love my Shima, even though she is collecting rust these days...

I barely played my Shima since all the radar spam ships were added but after the rework I put her away permanently and locked the door. What a total waste of time grinding her and the captain.

Omg @NoZoupForYou those star wars prequel memes were glorious.. 

I had Anakin and Padme's theme playing on this attack run on a Benson the other night, it highlights how tranquil and de stressing dive bombing DD's feels :P

I had the great pleasure of playing as the only dd in a game last night with (2) Midways and (1) Hak... yes.... I was a T8 DD, the ONLY one, in a game against (3) CVs.

I felt honored.

I died horribly.

There wasn't anything that could have been done.

NOTE: I sat 2km away from a pair of Woosters, and it didn't matter.  DD = CV food, and I get it now... they can't hurt anything else.  lol

Going to call bullcrap. 2 woosters will kill any squadron before it can make a single drop.

1 AA build wooster with the sector set can do that, too (but a number of cruiser players don't like going for the AA build).

Call it all you want.  You weren't just a T8 DD in a 3 T10 CV game.

AND for once I wasn't complaining about it.  I GET IT now.  DDs (especially AA-less IJN DDs) are food for CVs.  When the entire team other than the CVs is moving in a ball, and the DD is in front of that ball (even by a few km), that is the target to hit.  I should have just stayed in the middle of the team the whole match, right?  lol

Shima still has its place. Its made a strong showing in KOTS despite the heavy midway presence.

What probably really happened is you wandered away from the woosters.

It doesn't matter how many CVs are in the game, 2 of them together will annihilate any squadron that gets close.

That's bullcrap. I've seen number of times planes pushing past their AA net and dropping their ordinance despite few plane losses on the way.

for 1 non-AA spec wooster, yes that's possible. It'll hurt but you can get a drop off. Especially if you never close to within 4km of it.

AA spec, sector-managed wooster will still squadron wipe, usually before a drop happens, but full AA build cruisers are relatively rare.

You'll likely get the first drop in only and lose every plane for a miniscule amount of damage.  It's not worth the effort attacking a 2+ AA cruiser group unless one is low and you have to kill it to have your team get their panties unbunched to push.

So in summary:

DDs are murdered.

CLs/CAs murder.

And BBs are preschoolers.

Edit: I'm so gonna get downvoted for that last one.

I laughed so hard at the BB part of the video!  Hahahaha!

Zoup, I do think your video was spot on.  I cross my fingers for no CVs in every DD game I queue up for, I cry for sadness when in my wooster there isn't something to shoot down, and I honestly don't care about CVs in any of my BBs except in my Nelson... but that is just because in my Nelson I can't be bothered with anything other than shooting forward.

I probably did, or since it was on Shatter I probably screwed up LoS with my teammates, while dodging the scariest air assault I've ever seen.
