So, some folks know... some folks don't.

Why is Hidden Menace commander skill in a state you probably don't want to mess with?  Video explain below:

I agree with this, but at the same time even if they made it where they weren't getting damage climbing back up I find that extra stealth for a CV really isn't too much of a win.

From playing CVs in general, there's literally going to be near a corner, behind a island, or following the circle where the other ships are if you see the other enemy team coming from the other direction. 

 

My old saying if the enemyis in range to spot you, you pretty much a dead CV to begin with from allowing them to get within range.

Anything new develop on this, or is it still broken?

I just came back to WoWs from a year long hiatus to check out what's new. And some of the changes are good. Others not so much. There's more than a few skills from this commander re-work that need to be "tweeked" because they're pretty much useless or too punitive. But the whole rework was a positive step I thought.

1) A 10km detection range on a plane? Like wth? Seriously? That's broken. Even with Hidden Menace.

2) A -50% nerf to Hidden Menace on your return speed is not worth it. 

3) Pretty much all of the survivability skills are too weak. The AA is always stacked from numerous ships blobbing together. Then you're usually up-tiered watching your squadrons melt before you can even turn around...

4) Fighter skills... yeah. No point to those either.

5) The secondaries skills are pretty cool though. For some good LULZ, secondary build an Erich Loewendardt then watch DD's run for cover and POP as you knife-fight them with a CV. OMG!
