Hapa, were there changes made to CVs that were not put into the update notes?  Thanks.

For instance:
- Every CV had their boost regeneration halved
- Bombs now seem to all have the same initial downward acceleration (from a standard of 0.66 to 1.2). This is a massive change for the GER CVs (Richthofen used to have a pitiful 0.24!). Some USN CVs (Midway, Lexington, Enterprise, Ranger, FDR) had 0.5 fall time instead of 0.6 fall time, so this is also a pretty big change for them
- FOV has been altered such that using boost will modify FOV more noticably than it used to

Glad I’m not the only one.

It feels you take more losses on recall too. As if the planes linger longer that they did. I haven’t tested it due to limited time today but it felt odd to be deplaned playing Kaga earlier.

WG did a pear harbor on cvs. Which is funny because its also the release of the FDR.

Yeah something changed it seems, a lot of people are reporting actual gameplay changes. WG hasn't said anything so it may be bug. Although it seems too designed for a bug. But it's very odd they didn't say anything if it was intentional. Hopefully WG will clarify soon.

WG finally listening to player feedback a needed CVs! 

Assuming you mean nerfed, and CV's have already been nerfed to hell with DD's you can't spot until they're under your attack window, walls of unavoidable flak that'll wipe out your planes before you get close to launching, and an enemy CV that's pretty much untouchable with auto heal and auto launching fighters. CV fighters have less teeth than DD flak does. 

WG can't just delete the CV lines, so they're clearly making them increasingly pointless to play. They can no longer properly spot for the team, support a push on the flanks or defend the team from enemy CV's. At the moment they're just making up the numbers, and making the planes even more vulnerable is only making things worse.

This topic has more info: 

tl;dr - yes, there appears to be a bug or two related to the new targeting, particularly around torp spread and plane toughness. They weren’t in the patch notes because they were unanticipated.
