Richthofen show up in a game.  Naturaly I never got attacked the whole game, I was in DM.  

we won the game and somone on the team with the Richthofen said "our CV sucked ****" typical hate cv trash.   Somone pointed out that he was top 5 players in NA.

Granted just 1 game but AP rockets are probabaly not the CDS (carrier derangement syndrome) that is cracked up to be.

FDR is in the same category.  I have seen one 4 times and have never been afraid of it.  Lex in a t8 battle is the only one to worry about.

Anyone see the new German CV or FDR?  How did the game go?

I was in with one the other night and the CV (not the CV player) was pretty inept. Very long arming distances and the torps are hilariously slow.  I was in a BB (Yammy maybe?  I don’t really remember) and I out turned and out ran the torps.

Lol. Sadly if you had let them hit you, you would never have noticed.

It is shaping up to be the not just the worst CV but the worst prem ever.

It is a new ship to the supertesters and the CC's and even the best have to deal with the learning curve.

German CVs have AP rockets (most have from how their damage looks DD caliber until Red Baron which has flying DM damage). FDR has 60 HE rockets that fire in one long line.

Both of them are hot trash. I've divved with a couple of them and they pretty much can't do anything at T10. The one guy said the FDR would make a decent t6.

Thw only thing FDR looks good for is ships grouped together.

Played against a Parseval the other day. I can't remember whether I was playing Hipper or Mogami, but he singled me out for 3 waves of rocket planes.

His aim was fine, but the rockets were bunk. I might have taken 3-4k damage all together lol.

When I see the Red Baron being mentioned, it made me remember a small bit of Azur Lane humor.  Enterprise, Bismarck, and the other Germans...

I was in a midway and the German cv had sunk me in 3 min. I honestly didn’t know what had happened initially. I’ve played around 250 midway games and never been attacked and sunk to easy and so quickly. I was salty.

FDR in the queue makes me happy though, if a Unicom cv player can’t do squat with it , I sure don’t want one.

Watched Flambass over the weekend. He had the Richthofen on his team. After he was sunk, Flambass followed the CV.

Rockets seem to be decent.

Never saw the DBs.

The Torpedos are really slow. Also took quite a bit of time to arm as well. Someone paying attention can likely avoid the torpedos, but even if they hit, they did not seem to do all that much damage.

 

 

As for the FDR. Did see one in a battle on the opposite team. He got deleted about the 10 minute mark while slightly parked behind an island. Don't think he contributed much but then the rest of the team was going potato.
