It seems the CV queues tell a tale of truth

I thought they would all be KM CVs though time and again, at all tiers, the numbers are on the way up.

Embrace your carriers! Thumbs up everyone! :Smile_honoring:

Easy way to farm certain Directives. But hey, consider this; since WG balances by popularity, if CVs turn out to be too popular it's straight to the chopping block.

Probably thinking what I've been thinking, if I take out a actual GOOD CV (anything not German) and face a German CV, my chances to get a win go up dramatically, because the german CVs are so bad.   

Only thing I wanna try is CV hunting in the German T8 CV, beyond that, I don't even wanna look at the stupid things, they are SOOOO bad.

I know this is a tiny, tiny anecdote, barely a datum blip, but of the three random battles into which I took my Rhein last night, TWO had a pair of carriers per side and only one of those was a Rhein. The other was a Hosho.

The other was a single carrier battle, with one Rhein per side.

Both of the two-CV battles were long waits that forced bots onto both sides. The single-carrier battle was exclusively human. 

Bear in mid that a lot of this - but not all of it - is going to be earlybird unlockers grabbing their permacamos. It will settle down after that, and then there will be a HUGE spike to a temporary high plateau on 5 August. T8 carrier numbers will rise as the research cost goes up, and we will probably see a fair number of two-carrier T8 or mixed T6/8 games. T4 carrier numbers WOULD have fallen, because that grind is becoming much shorter; however, that effect will be masked by the sheer number of Rheins in the CV queues.

There's a mission in the Jerzy Swirski campaign that calls for spotting ribbons in Tier 9 and 10 ships. I FXP'd to the Audacious to speed-grind through that and get Jerzy out of the way before Dockyard started. I justified it on the basis that FXP can easily be earned back and I wouldn't put it past WG to put in more T9/10 spotting-type carrier missions in events down the track. Plus they are dragging their feet HORRIBLY on FDR, and I could no longer wait.

I was trying to complete the missions for the permanent camo for the T4 Rhein and the CV queue was horrific.

Maybe if I actually had something besides Zeppy CV queue would have some meaning?

Others have been luckier or dolphin/whaled containers. No CV so far from Directive or Daily containers.

Why else do you think German CVs were announced and released so quickly?  The CV numbers were falling.  Q4 will be very interesting.

More shocked at that DD number - been seeing mostly 1 or 2 DD games  in VIII & above.

They are "strong" if you play against bots that don't turn into your rockets....otherwise, not so much.   Relying on RNG bombs to do damage isn't fun.

What time of day is this? I notice that when it gets really late and the sea people come on the queue is full of CVs like this. Seems they are more popular with other regions.

Truly why play anything else? 

Because playing one ship type all the time is BO-RING.

Plus, playing regular ships and dealing with CVs maintains the karmic balance for when the shoe's on the other foot lol.

Is that those 6/6 missions at the end of the CV directives?

Is so, I have four.

Do they just appear? Because I didn’t see anything announcing them when I opened my free CV containers...

Either more nerfs or turn AA into something besides an FPS burden.

WG knows its target market :P

Lol don’t bet on it! Well mostly anyway as they have fine some nice things for me that were spot on. WG got confused recently though by giving me tier 8 CV CV A.Parseval and all U have dine with it s take it into Co-Op a couple times with full secondary build and think I only tried attacking with aircraft once, but rest of the time just secondary brawled. So yeah I don’t do CVs much if you can tell. I prefer BBs, DDs, CAs, some CLs, and even subs more than I like CVs. Although have recently reinstated some IJN CV usage in ,y fleet of ships, but still very small percentage of my overall battles involve my using a CV.

No those 6/6 missions drop the perm camos but you need the CV to complete them first.

It's a spectrum.  The idea is to give that market a broken class that they can exploit however as much is necessary to keep them fully engaged.  

If you have a conscience, it'll just be an occasional dabbling.   If you're a full on troll, you become a "main".
