So lets just ignore the fact that the planes from CV's have a never ending supply of ordinance.  Because that's the best way to make CV's balanced (rolls eyes).  But when you have a tier 7 CV vs a tier 5 BB and the tier 5 BB has low AA ability the CV player just goes back and forth from port to starboard dropping torpedos knowing the BB's AA is junk.  Makes for a REALLY fun game wargaming, you guys did a fantastic job redoing the CV's.

There are no T7 CVs.  But yea, it does suck.  Best thing to do is to stay near a couple other ships.

Only in RTS CV times were there ever a tier 7 CV... At present, no tier 7 CV can attack a tier 5 ship because tier 7 CV just simply dont exist in the game.

I still use mine with some frequency. It’s delicious when a T4 or even a T6 cv just comes full bore at me with no regard for consequences 😂 Of course if they know what they’re doing they can take advantage of the shorter range of my AA

So she is still good against CVs I heard people complain about her AA after the rework and different patches .

I still take mine out regularly, tier 5 -7 is my sweet spot for playing. While the more experienced CV players they may be able to drop outside of the Texas' AA range but they will still have to fly through it after the drop and will pay then.

When the rework first hit it was all experienced CV players in the CV's and they kept clear of the Texas but now there are more that are not and she eats them for breakfast, lunch, and supper.

I got the Texas for a mission awhile back. I was so happy to get it. However I don’t know if it is because it is a odd tier (T5)class ship and there are no odd tier CV’s anymore. It does face T6 CV’s where it’s AA is a little more overwhelmed. So unless she is facing a T4 CV it’s like the thrill is gone. I take the NY more so than not because she has better 2ndaries. Not getting rid of Texas mind you, but she is more of a collectible for me now.

I suppose she is not alone in this situation. I remember sailing the Langley And Bogue and facing the Texas and O.R. I would be thinking oh man.. ugh.

Now it’s sailing the upper tiers and seeing the Halland/Smaland, Minotaur, or Worcester and thinking oh man.. ugh.

I think they're limited on the amount of players online, plus the needed level of skill, plus the same tier level, so you will get these games from time to time.
