That would be people who rushed out to buy the new (old) hotness that is "Tier 8 premium CVs" all wanting to test out their new toys. You'll be seeing a LOT of Graf Zeppelins, Kagas, Enterprises, and Saipans in-game for probably the next week or so.

Yeah...^^this.

Basically don't play above T5 if you want a decent match.....T6 is getting dragged up more often than not.

The same thing as will be going on as soon as the Soviet battleships hit the tech tree (should be patch 0.8.4); everyone is racing to play the big new thing.

4 rework new premium CV's went on sale, apparently a decent CV drop rate with aviation containers, mission for CV's in this week's Fly-Strike-Win directive are 3 good reasons.

As clairvoyant as you are what are the winning Powerball numbers for tonight? :Smile_amazed:

There's been some negative post on the Russian BB's. I hope it is just "the sky is falling" crowd.

I've enjoyed CV's in coops. Rarely do they sink anything so you have a better chance for a better score. Been in several 2 CV coops where they finished at the bottom with very little XP earned. I think the better CV drivers are playing randoms.

It is and it isn't. The Russian battleships have had to be nerfed repeatedly in many ways, especially after Flamu showed how difficult it was for a Tier 10 battleship at close range with an easy shot to overmatch the RU T3 from the front. That's a good sign that they started out WAY overpowered. 

Combine that with the number of ships in the line that were either never started or never finished, and the relative lack of achievement of the ones that actually made it into the water, and you have a recipe for some justifiably sour grapes.

I understand the desire to offer something "glorious and stronk" to the home market, but IMO they erred badly in also not offering a Tier 2 pre-Dreadnought to the premium-buying crowd, or as an end-of-event prize, to honour those VMF capital ships that did actually distinguish themselves in battle (if only by their heroism and perseverence). This is a surprise coming from the company that went out of its way to offer Mikasa, the symbol of Japanese dominance over Russian naval power.

Same thing that happens when new lines or premiums are released.  Load up the US and French ships and farm some planes for the Fly Strike Win missions.

Looking over the list of Russian/Soviet Union BB's there is nothing noteworthy. Heroism is belongs to the crews, not the ship. But this is a game where paper ships become pixel ships and that does produce sour grapes.

So...all that guff about the CV player base being tiny and that no one wanted to play the class...

...was wrong?

<Sips Tea>

Fascinating. 

Don't burn your tongue...And an uptick with WG literally giving away premium cv's doesn't really mean what you think it means....:Smile_trollface:

Call back in a few weeks.

I know...

...but many on this forum have been spouting the nonsense that only 5% want to play CVs...

...which is plainly not true today.

Merely watching the children burn the game to the ground...its amusing and sad at the same time.

I decided to stay away from this game for at least a month, WG forcing people into playing AA ships or the prem CVs.

Gaming dollars can be spend somewhere else.

I ended up with three in 15 boxes while fishing for flags. Have tried them in the training room, might use them for the event, will never take them in random....:Smile_teethhappy:

To me at least, the new CV game play seems to remind me of an arcade guided missile sim with an attack routine. If I were to invest the time, I suppose I could become decent at them, but i simply won't ever invest the time.

Click battle, see too many cv’s in  que for my liking, click exit enjoy another aspect of my life, problem solved. Maybe if enough people do this then WG will stop with the double cv matches.

In view of the mention further up about the Soviet BBs: Cruisers are having fun shooting down airplanes from the CVs and not unhappy about CVs, and the DDs are unhappy with the CVs.  Now, when the Soviet BBs show up, the DDs will be having fun sinking them, and the cruisers will be the fodder.  It all balances out over time.

Yes WG are not the sharpest tacks with a still divided community over the CV rebork they decide to have a CV sale so that CV spamming and CV noob play just makes everything miserable.
