I have gotten missions for 2 now and I can't stand CVs... Can I transfer them to someone?

Incidentally, the T4 is op for scouting and engagement,  but terrible at actually doing work...

wth kind of game design is that?

You don't have to complete the missions, nor do you have to play CVs.

Imo, it feels like the German CVs will have one of the highest skill gaps of the CVs with their bizarre drop patterns and speed.

IMHO the German CV's are complete trash. The aiming reticle is so messed up and the AP rockets are useless against DD's.

Once again it's just another ship line the WG didn't thoroughly think about before releasing.

German CVs are incredibly underpowered. Dive bombers aren't accurate, torps don't do decent damage, and rockets are iffy....

All you need is half a brain when facing them and you're safe.

Bizarre. Good descriptor. The rockets aim is different but the dive bombers are definitely bizarre. I like that these carriers are so very different from the rest but getting the feel for how they work will take a casual carrier driver like myself several more games to get. I'm still on the fence.

On the plus side, once again the art department aced the visuals.

German CVs are high skill high reward. I don’t expect this to be a popular line, especially for players who have never played a CV before.
 

German CVs are very unforgiving of poor play and imo may of the players who rate them as weak have yet to understand the quirks of the line.

This is my suspicion. 

I anticipate this being a potential pick in clan battles. Where communication can set up brutal hits.

Hard to say. Hakuryu has set a very high bar for CVs in CBs and MvR may struggle to replicate her success.

Could you provide tips/videos then? Help the community understand?

Right.  Until it can be tested, just seems possible. May be the worst.  The potential of ap rockets at t10 is "interesting".  

I just wish rockets were out.

Supposedly, I heard that their weak-but-fast torpedoes are meant for catching DD's, since their AP rocket planes are mainly for cruisers instead. Whether it'll work well as intended remains to be seen... but it's still what WG seems to go for with these CV's. Personally, I'm not so sure, since the torpedoes don't seem fast enough for that purpose.

The dive bombers are very wonky to use... but still faaaaar better than GZ's (GZ's dive bombers need some serious help). If you manage to land citadels on some cruiser or BB, it can net some... okayish damage. They're probably the best part about the whole German CV line, IMHO.

Their secondaries aren't as good as GZ's, but they still get extended base range and supposedly the same kind of accuracy as the ones on Massachusetts... so speccing for a secondary build is something worth considering, I say. Sure, they're tiny little 105mm pop guns, but they still fire fast and can set fires decently. Only exception to this is Rhein at Tier IV, since she has too few guns: only four guns total. Yikes.

As someone else already said, they seem to be a "high risk, high reward" kind of line. I feel like I should agree... but that's just me... lol. :Smile_hiding:

My two AP rockets. Please take them not with a grain of salt, but with a grain of sugar... lel. :Smile_teethhappy:

Yeah, the attack patterns are rather strange. My suggestion for anyone that gets one is to spend a lot of time in co-op to learn those patterns.

If you do not want the German CVs they can always be sold for credits...

On twitch, Gaishu and CitizenS9 sometimes streams CV gameplay including German CVs. You can look through their past broadcasts or ask them directly if they are live.

Due to their status as early access ships, it may be difficult to find specific advice for German CV

Not only that, the rocket reticle doesnt sync up, you line up in front of the ship you attack, click for attack and the reticle goes behind the target and you cant see it...

As far as I’m seeing, Hakuryu does everything better including not praying for torps to hit on DDs but you may be right. I still think a Uni would do way better in a Haku.

So; what your saying, is that once again WG is pandering to the small percentage of poor, misunderstood, bored deep purple players, and to hell with what everyone else might think.

It does not kill other Hakuryus better; there is going to be quite a bit of CVs crying once it is released ;)

I think you might be correct. It's a big change from IJN US to German for a casual like myself. I imagine their will be some condemnation for this style from the brand new and old school alike. That doesn't mean it's bad IMHO. It's just a big adjustment.

Last I checked the Percival is outpacing the other t8 tech CVs in damage and xp.

Go view the pen values of the t10 rockets and bombs then do the math. Or just play t10 CVs until a ST does it to you.

Where are any of the penetration values listed for any of the AP rockets? Certainly not in the tool tabs.
