I don't know why but I just can't secure victories like I can in other tier 10 carriers in this ship. I can wrack up damage just fine but I just don't feel I can influence the game's outcome like a Hak or a Midway.

Midways HE bombs make it by far the best cv.. Audacious just isnt good enough to compete atm.

I might just be getting super unlucky because "super Potato" describes most of the teams I get with it. It might just be one of those cursed ships or I might have just not figured out how to influence with it.

Dedication and tolerance abounds.

I wouldn’t play 68 games in ANY ship (in such a short time since Audacious came out,) much less 68 at a tier I dislike.

Tier 5/6/7 still provides some of the most interesting and dynamic gameplay, I think.  Particularly Tier 7.  It's glutted for solid ships, so it doesn't fall into the trap of seeing the same "meta" composition over and over.

Audacious is lacking, excruciatingly slow squadron speed coupled with very unexciting bombers (yawn while you drop..) does put it at disadvantage. Just an example, the level bombers drop time and dispersion is so huge it can't hit destroyers, but the HE bombs shatter and fail to explode when dropped on t10 battleships such as Yamato. So what is the point of them?

so how bloody useful is that in random (and in future Clan) battles? About as useful as a soda dispenser in a beer brewery.

Is anyone else able to boost while the boost replenish consumable is active like you can on all the other CVs?  Is it a bug or am I the only one experiencing this as I've seen no one else complain about it?

yah but theres so much RNG with the level bombing. Not to mention that level bombing is super vulnerable to hard counters, aka, not being a battleship and not maneuvering. otherwise it sucks.

For the life of me, I don't know why WG nerfed the bomb drop time on these carpet bombers.  With shorter drop times, accuracy on maneuvering ships would seem to be better.

Its so bad. I was expecting a better Implacable which I had decent success with but after the drop nerf... its a joke now. I struggle to hit 70k+ in Audacious. Bombs are horrid with the slow drop. A BB paying attention can literally start turning the second you start the attack run and almost be sideways to your drop by the time you actually get on target and add the 4s time to target on the bombs. Torps are still solid but given her convergence of them and supposedly being able to go nose in and still hit with several- limited success on that too. And dear god the rockets... just awful.

Midway is an order of magnitude better than Audacious is and not JUST because of the bombs

Current Lexington record for me is 227k in TX. Implacable had several 150k+ in TX.

Audacious was a waste of money.... I should not have bought the camo right out of the gate but that was my fault. I really was expecting a better Implacable but in all reality it just isn't there. I know some will get it to work but man it just isn't for me.

kinda feel the same way, spent 3 years looking forward to her, bough thr camo and so on.

I can't help but feel, Lexington is going to get nerfed.
 

As for Audacious, she was released, on a Monday, on April Fools, just as certain political shenanigans are going on for the modern day UK. I can't help but suspect WG's timing was deliberate, and this timing tells us what to expect (a flop^).

I have a feeling anything that drops HE bombs will get a nerf and Lex/Midway will probably see a reduction in damage on them.

Can’t wait until the CV rework has ended. 

That way, we all can make an informed decision on which tier to grind/buy.
