Enterprise Coming back onsale or not

So I have 3 tier 8 premium CVs. They are Saipan, Graf zeppelin and Kaga and i heard there is another premium CV and not the indomitable and it is the Enterprise. Saipan, Enterprise, Kaga and Graf zeppelin are the best premium tier 8 CVs. Wanna get the Enterprise? Well you can't because it is offsale and the containers that have her are also offsale and she wont come back to the premium shop. If she is coming back onsale again, Then Wargaming may let her be obtained by completing a collection or make her back onsale one more time on the armory or premium shop and make it onsale for 1 year.

Wanna get Graf zeppelin, Saipan or Kaga from the armory or premium shop? Heres the info of them to see wich one is the best.

Graf zeppelin: Fast torpedo bombers and dive bombers

Saipan: Only tier 8 CV with tier 10 planes

Kaga: With the largest attacking flight than any other CV on it's dive bombers and torpedo bombers and has a very large hanger size

Cost of the doubloons of them on the armory:

Saipan and Kaga: 11,300

Graf zeppelin: 14,000

Never coming back.

They removed her for a reason and she stays gone for that reason. IF they ever did relent, they would be met with justifiable anger from the people who spammed Santa crates far beyond her ticket price solely to obtain her.

I got her for free in crate related to the FUBAR return of the CVs to the live server. Same for Kaga.  Enterprise is not OP, but being a USN CV she has already been nerfed. Twice...

Of course Ensign Cthulhu shes in a santa crate and spamming money on santa crates is just a waste of money but The other CVs on the best premium tier 8 CVs list are not bad. Kaga can be better than Enterprise due to her large hanger size and HE bombs wich is better than AP bombs. Saipan can be better due to her tier 10 planes and they can easily destroy tier 6s and 7s. Graf zeppelin can be better because of her fast torpedo bombers and dive bombers

Grand admiral how is Enterprise not op? Shes pretty good because of her AP bombs and the largest attack aircraft air group

Because if you suck at dodging AA, and constantly get bottom tiered, Ghost’s planes are like gnats in a blow torch.

Because if you suck at twitch skills, aim, and drop timing, your chances for getting AP bomb citadels make unicorns look common.

Sorry, but a few deep purples being good with ANY ship doesn’t make it OP.

Maybe it was OP during RTS, but now, it’s just another has-been joke, like all the carriers.

Watch Zoups latest vid. Plays it sub par. Still hits 100k damage. Enterprise is broken and OP.

Big E is top dog in the T8 CV slot.

If I’d ever directly witnessed anything which lead me to believe that, I wouldn’t have commented as I did.

None even close to the gap Between Enterprise and it's other T8 counterparts.

Just speaking for myself. When facing the Big E in T8 in my Lexington, Shokaku, or Implacable. It is the one that gives me the most trouble.

I wish it did go back on sale as is. I’d think of a good excuse to tell my wife why I was buying it.

I'm not afraid of the ship.  
It is the player(s) that I'm curious about.

Enterprise being the most powerful CV at T8 is no accident, its merely mimicking its IRL counterpart of wrecking anything that dared come across it

Zuikaku gave it a college try; but the mauling her air groups took at Eastern Solomons and Santa Cruz put paid to her efforts.

Especially at Santa Cruz.

I recently read an article saying every aircraft that returned to Zuikaku had AA damage, and many of the veteran pilots were visibly shaken by the level of AA they’d had to face.

(I believe Enterprise had just received her first 40mm Bofors refit, plus South Dakota was present with her 20 127mms, and other AA.)

Enterprise and Zuikaku were the most veteran carriers on both sides, until Cape Engano, 10/44. After that, the title was Enterprise’ alone.

Don't tell Turkey-chan that. :fish_haloween:

But yes, Enterprise is too OP in the new carrier meta for her to return rn. That said, one of her sisters could come along instead.

USS Hornet CV-8 a sister Yorktown class.

USS Hornet CV-12 a Essex class.

Either of these two would get my vote. Both rich in Naval history.

Every account of USN AA once they got the radar guided thing figured out states it was freaking scary. There's the stupid amount of shells all those guns spit out, and then add the radar guided coordinated gunfire? There's a reason the USN didn't lose an Essex class, and even their big early war CV loses usually weren't solely due to air attack. I've also read that bit about every plane having AA damage, it's incredible the Japs got what they did through.

 

OP, Enterprise is probably gone for the foreseeable future. General consensus is she's OP. I have little experience in CVs, and was still able to hop in her and make myself somewhat effective, those rocket planes are no joke. Also WG makes a lot of money off people buying stupid numbers of Santa Crates in hopes of getting her. It's a shame, one of the most iconic ships of WWII for sure. Hopefully WG will get CVs to a state where they could sell the Big E again, but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting.

Except I’m garbage at the predictive blind attacks some seem so good at. Outside a blind torp attack into smoke, I can’t attack destroyers worth spit, unless someone ELSE is spotting them.

That destroyers are so hard to spot (especially with AA turned off,) never mind actually attack without outside spotting, is partly why I have so little sympathy for complaints by destroyers about getting hammered.

It use to be, but the nerf on the carriers has made it weak. I say Kaga is the top dog in rank battles.
