The premium carriers went on sale, and in crates last week.  It'll fade somewhat when the RU BBs start showing up in preview next week.

This and there is a Fly Strike Win mission that is best done with CV's.

Not far in the future we will be seeing complaints about too many BB's with the launch of the RU BB's.

Now you know you was only playing with Tier 4 Carriers as Tier 6-10 are capped at 2 per side.

They are Tier 8's having 3 CV's on each team is a Tier 4 thing.

Yep. The whining will slow down then? Well maybe not

My friend is eagerly awaiting the RU BBs with his Asashio :Smile_trollface:

They're also going to be pretty vulnerable to air attacks.  All the build recommendations cater towards BB Survival Builds, ASM1, etc.

You mean guided missiles on water, because the new game play in no way reflects actual flying...:Smile_glasses:

Yes. The devs have decided against changing the MM to provide better games for the playerbase. Instead, they have decided to please a few CV drivers and screw everyone else in the match. That is why people are switching out of Randoms and not spending money. 

Get used to it.

Pretty much this, except I think it has less to do with actually caring about pleasing the CV griefers than blatantly milking them for short-term premium ship sales. Seems to be working as intended.

I'm willing to bet a sixer of cold ones that  the next few patches are going to see the continued incremental nerfs to CV's to prime the whale pumps for the Next Big Thing (Soviet BB line, French & Italian DD lines) and eventually, yes, subs.

The schadenfreude of watching the rabid CV fans get played for chumps since 8.1 is delightful. :Smile_teethhappy:
