UPCOMING 8.4 – BRITISH CV’S – THE ONLY CHOICE

Well, Let’s see after this next update – AP bombs from Japanese Carriers well have to thread the proverbial eye of the needle in the hopes of landing a direct hit on any ship; HE bombs from U.S. Aircraft Carriers may hit 10% of the time for any respectable damage etc.-  Basically playing a U.S. or Japanese Aircraft Carrier will be as productive as a one legged man in an A** kicking contest after the update.

The only Carrier that will emerge from the "Whiners Inquisition” is the British Carriers, and their innate ability to HE Carpet Bomb, it’s hard to nerf an area effect bombing with its dispersive spread. NOW -  that goes without saying, a whole new wave of complaints will emerge from the “Woe Always Let Me Complain Crowd” calling for the Eradication, Annihilation, and ruination of all the British Carriers.

Also,

This is a perfect opportunity for Wargaming to finally release and sell the “Indomitable” tier VIII British Carrier for approximately $50.00 U.S.  British Carriers will reign as the “go to carriers” of choice (for awhile), it makes perfect since during this time of British CV Supremacy for Wargaming to bait the consumer with the release of an OP Premium British Carrier, -  only to nerf it at a later date which is habitually foreseeable.

Note “the Indomitable” ONLY carries; Fighter/Rocket & Bomber Aircraft -  No Torpedo Aircraft -  And no nerfs will be forthcoming to the tier British Carriers right away, not until Wargaming has amassed enough profits overtime from selling the Indomitable – Only then will they nerf the whole CV British line, to include the “Indomitable”

 I know, I know -   other opinions i.e. Well, the Japanese have great Torpedoes, and the U.S. etc. –

BUT, remember – After the update, British Carriers will still retain respectable damage output from all three of their offensive capabilities e.g. Rockets, “Bombs” and Torpedoes –  U.S. and Japanese will have to rely on their rockets and torpedoes for maximizing their damage / overtime output respectively.

Now -

Sit back relax, order some Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding, with a side order of Fish & Chips, topped off with some Cottage Pie, chased down with a cup of piping hot Earl Grey Cream Tea, and watch the upcoming British Carrier Show, Mate!

I got a kick out of this.

So true, and we will just roll with it.

It does make me want to then focus more on my fighter game with the USN CVs.

First RN bombs get drag chutes, now all CV aircraft get drag chutes.  GZ and enterprise are toast on the update.

Isn't Haku getting its torpedo soup abilities back?    That might be worthwhile, just stay totally out of all AA and throw long range torps into blobs.

My experience on the PT was that the only reliable tool to attack DD's is rockets. AP bombs were always mostly useless against all but near dead DD's. Dive bombers are still good against larger ships. Making two changes at once to US DB's was using a sledge hammer to do what needed a scalpel.

Oh no, GZ like midway rocket aircraft got super gimped.  I can see the way they announced it bamboozled you.  GZ and Enterprise aircraft are going to get absolutely shredded.

what slow?they are still the fastest planes in the game. the torp and bomber aircrafts can still   go beyond 200 knots. just not the 250knots.

GZ planes were already a meh tool,they still cary tiny tims and are perfect against DDs because they are slow.

they can easily turn around for another strike because of the speed,like the rn torpedo bombers do.

if i keep using it for DD hunting,they are still a good tool.actually slower means easier to aim and make a second strike faster.

GZ depends on that speed to get out of AA because the planes are paper.   If the GZ can't escape the AA bubble all the planes will VERY quickly die, attempt a 180 within AA with the GZ and you'll see what I mean (you'll lose every single plane before you complete that 180)....slower planes = more time in AA = more planes die.  

If the GZ can't zip in and zip out, its unplayable.

You know they going reduce a lot the speed boost, and thats means more time in AA right?

so now CV players will need to manage the speed boost,use it when closing in instead of wasting it when taking off the  CV. she can still go beyond 200 knots,that is still enough to zip in and zip out.

Is there currently a clear cut CV line that is better than the others from top to bottom?

I think is more likely 1 of 2 things happens:

1 - People keep playing because they love that ship no matter what.

2 - Most will just stop playing because is not fun play with a nerfed class.
