This is why I almost always play CV

Seriously. As much as I support CV play, this is the same sort of thing the anti-cv crowd does. You are leading the charge in a slow as hell bb against an entrenched player doing their job well and you’re somehow not to blame.

Pro tip: hit Y, use the elevated view angle to shoot that guy. Boom suddenly he is zero threat because he is dead or nearly dead and cowering. Letting him farm you is a you issue not a ship issue.

Wow, weird how you don't like being attacked by someone that is hiding. Just dodge it! :Smile_child:

THIS IS WHY THE CV CLASS EXISTS

I deal with or mitigate those guys when I play BB almost every game, with or without CV help. I don't understand why you're so upset by this? Does getting shot by a cruiser you can't directly delete back trigger you or something? It's no different then a hidden DD trying to torp you or some other BB you aren't aware of/not paying attention to hitting you from across the map.

Thank you all, this was exactly what I was expecting to see/hope for.

It’s funny how many ships, light cruisers in particular are DESIGNED AND MEANT TO USE ISLANDS (that were put there by developers, coincidence I think not!) AS COVER.

Meanwhile the other BB in the cap is perfectly covered from any fire behind the island and angled towards most of the enemies just by being a little bit to the right.

LOL  unlike when fighting CVs you have options to escape the HE spammer and not take 1 further round from him. Do what the other BB is doing go right and not be in his fire at all.    You have lined yourself up so he can shoot you perfectly through that gap.

So cruisers heat shelling ships to death behind islands is okay it's just a feature :Smile_hiding:But is not okay for CVs just to played the game and do damage :Smile_ohmy: That's very hypocritical in my opinion  :Smile_popcorn:

So you play CV because it's the easiest class to play, you get unlimited planes, your ship can hide all battle and has little chance of being destroyed?

Yuro was right...

...the necessary rework was a rework of the playerbase...

That is very profound.

Yeah, it really sucks when someone sits safely out of reach and rains damage on you with impunity, like say, a carrier.

Ahhh...so you play CVs so that you can be the one shooting others without fear of reprisal, because it is wrong when others do it. 

Gotchya.

The way I look at it is, not so much that it's wrong, just annoying. Since people will play things that annoy me, I don't feel bad doing the same. (although I sometimes feel bad for DDs, if I give them an unusally hard (for me) pasting)

Playing any ship in the game, in any manner allowed, is not objectively wrong.

Yep. And since I don't like playing rainbow arc-gunned ships, CVs it is. I spent enough time just dealing with it before the rework, now I can vent my frustration when it occurs.

 But to balance the karmic scales, I'm perfectly willing to let CVs take shots at my other ships.

Is there some other button that does the normally? Never knew about it and for me Y does nothing, just a consumable slot.  Looking through the controls and not seeing anything that activates it.

 

I know the planes can do it, if that is what you meant, but would be certainly nice as a normal feature, without the range bonus :P
