Im sure this has been answered many times.  But Carriers are so overpowered now.  They can key in on any single player they want and eliminate them freely.  Especially battleships.  Can only turn and avoid so many planes.  Especially when you have little to no AA.  Come on Its getting really old.  Is there a happy Median that can be found?

I shouldnt be forced to play a vessel I dont like because some CV players were upset that AA was introduced.  CVs are too overpowered right now.  Its disgusting.  You cant expect people to WANT to play a game in which if you can be instakilled or almost know youre going to die in battle.  Giulio Cesare tier 5.  Tier 5 carrier can literally send planes to surround you constantly with torps and bombers.  Its ridiculous.  Cant even use guns because im having to constantly attempt to turn as much as I can to avoid constant attack from carriers.

the way you talk it's like you are getting the entire ww2 combined nations naval air forces on you.

tier5 giulio hardly have any weakness,her main weakness being CVs.

CV players are not upset about AA introduced since that thing was introduced since the first months of wows,CV players just take advantage of powercreeped ships with garbage AA to score kills for the team.

no such thing as instakill now with the end of rts cvs 

if you don't want to play with non powercreeped ships,as a german BB,stay close to cruisers and or DDs(not so close) the CV will most of the time focus on the DDs since they are a bigger threat than you,use your teammates to your advantage.

That's gonna be a hard nerf though. It means DDs are basically immune to CVs, just like how the baDDies have been whining for.

i don't think they will replace the HE rockets,but maybe give an option to swap before battle OR give ap rockets to specific ships.

most likely F.D.R will get ap rockets.

I think it's going to be a choice like before you go into battle. Such as the T8 and T10 USN CV's before battle you can choose the Tiny Tim or HVAR rocket load outs.

False. Wrong. Incorrect. Logical falacy. Show me the data. Maple syrup show GC performing as intended and CV that damages her is overperforming. Architype hyperbole strawman. Ad hominem. If you can't understand this your reading comprehension is poor. Weighed,  measured, I want affirmation, etc.

Hehe. That was fun.

GC resents your comment. GC is the Chuck Norris of Tier 8 heavy cruisers. She isn't weak against carriers, nobody plays her correctly. Why, after too much bourbon one night, I even saw GC shoot down an entire squadron with a single main battery shot while flogging 3 submarines with just her port side lifeboats.

I really don't see how CV's are so OP.  They get some hits, but it isn't that bad.

The rocket planes and infinite attacks are a little out of control. This is especially true at mid and low tiers where AA is severely lacking on most DDs and even some BB.

After statements that something that needs done about "CV vs DD interaction" the things that have been introduced are soft limits on CVs in queue and the proposal for AP rockets. The queue need to be hard limits without queue dumps; the random battles screen states that there is no limit for waiting time for Randoms, and this should be observed. 

The AP rockets just shift the damage to another class, and may not be that ineffective vs DDs, depending on the stats; Im wondering how long they will take to fuse. At least it may cause rocket planes to be used against a wider selection of targets. 

Nothing has been said about AA and the fact that many low tier ships that essentially had no AA when they went into service before there were carriers, and have none or next to none in game got considerably better AA than they have in game later in their service lives. 

There is a clear straight-up nerf coming to slingshotting.

Doesn't matter if the DDs don't take much in the first place. AP rocket planes will do scratch damage to them.

They are called submarines.

 

And then WG will counter this with an uber buffed abomination of the Mk 24 FIDO mine.

Can see that coming

Yeah it matters very much how much damage DDs take  and if you pretend 203 AP over-pen is a scratch then you are off your rocker. DDs have the lowest  health , survivability and highest risk of death of any class. It matters more to them then anyone else.  Especially at high tier where only a very few select DDs get heals.

Wow, taking maybe 3-4k on a good attack run. At t10. So scary. Even on the low end those DDs have 20k hp. AP rockets would make it basically pointless to send planes after DDs unless you get the rare team that actually shoots them when you spot them(and good luck with that).
