Will Wargaming Bring Back The Old Way of Playing CVs?

I had the game since Beta. Ever since then I've been playing mostly carriers. I love how you can take out multiple squads and attack different targets making the carrier the most important ship in battle. The carriers before the update were like beehives, sending out bees to attack multiple targets. Now, its like shooting a shotgun, send one squad to attack one target, *pumps* send another squad to attack the same or a different target. (I don't know the system) You get the point. Was the update meant for consoles? Then tell the console players to hook up mouse and keyboard. If they can't get one, buy one at Best Buy or order online from Amazon they're cheap. Here are the links:

Another question is why did they get rid of odd tier carriers? The Independence-Class and Essex-Class carriers are the most important carriers in WW2? Can tier 10 be the Essex?

Anyone remembers when the Midway had F2Hs? Good times it was.

Every bit as likely as Warplanes reverting to 1.x. :Smile_amazed:

Oh... I would love to go back to the old RTS style.  I would love to remind everyone what CV's used to be capable of.

I think it was something about having half as many to balance.  I heard they're going to bring back the odd tiers at some point, as some other permutation...or something???  :Smile_sceptic:

*comes back as premiums*

The plan is currently to bring them back as an alternate line with a slightly different playstyle.

They did show the odd tier CVs coming back in some graphic, but at tiers 4, 6, 8, and 10 with a new CV filling the gap, like Yorktown for the US line.

No No! Dont bring back the toxic cvs of  RTS... Just revert back every CV change, revert all the flood DMG nerf change to patch 0.8.0 and start over.

Its not hard. WOWS being WOWS, they're going to do what they feel fit against the best suggestions/advice of the community... We have to play/live with their bad ideas/bad game balance decisions. (with good intentions).

They still haven't addressed the CV problem yet, nor any other ship balance issues for that matter.

I dislike the old CVs and AA systems. I definitely hope they don't. The old CVs had too much map-wide spotting and alpha potential compared to the current DoT and chip-damage based 0.8 CVs.

Why is it that so often, the call for a need to create a so-called balance means taking the game in a downward spiral? This is a reoccurring theme with WG, no matter whether it's WoWP or WoWS. They keep tinkering with the game until they break it.

No. Never going to happen. Either adapt or quit the game.

Both versions of CVs are bad,  it’s like choosing between lung cancer and colon cancer. The  fact is they have a net negative  impact on the game.

They would have to once again, do yet another refund, as they have sold premium CVs under the reworked play style.  That is not going to happen any time soon and very likely never again.

All other things aside, the premium sales alone and a gigantic no.

That said, with the number of CVs now in players hands, the one shot cross drop torp kills would send players into a fit several octaves above what is currently happening.

We don't know yet. I guess possibly a more team support based line rather than strike-focused.

Can WG implement a way to at least have multiple squads in the air?

How would you control more than one squad at a time?

The only answer to that is a "RTS" playstyle, which is what they removed.  The did this, partially, for the console versions of the game that now exist.

I would be willing to wager that CV's will be nerfed to oblivion and captains like you will be on this forum complaining to high heaven about it.

Want to know why I am so certain of that? It's WG's MO, that's what they do. it's just a matter of time. Enjoy the CV's while you can.
