So, this is from the stream earlier today and is broken into three parts.

1) The first part is going to talk about the hull itself, the stats, and planes.  Then we're going to go into a training room and talk about what the Skip Bomb mechanics are and how they work.  We'll show some best-use tips as well~

2) Second part is going into our first live-streamed game!  We did a short Q&A after to handle any follow up questions post-game.

3) Third part has a question from chat asking about CV Sniping possibilities.  We test out if we can use our bombs without triggering the CV's defensive fighter... then we use Game #2 to test out how viable the CV snipe capability is in Random Battles.

Note:  Language Warning.  I doth do swears~

Second Note:  YouTube renders the lower quality version first, so eventually the resolution will go up.

This looks like CV on hard mode.

Getting the bombs working is going to be interesting

Interesting is a good word, though.  The whole point of a new CV is to give a new play experience.  Max Immelmann is definitely a unique experience.

Which makes it great. Not cut and past.

If the forum rules state 'limit profanity' so is it OK to post up other content and links to such profanity? e.g. YouTube

 

Personally, I don't mind, and I'm just asking.  if I did provide my opinion, it would be pointless as WG admins pick and choose which rules they enforce, and on who.  Which is very frustrating.

To be fair, I used profanity to describe the lackluster gameplay of the OP as a teammate last night in back to back games and got hit with -10 karma.

I’ve watched only one of your videos before. Seeing your face in the inset with these, why do I think that if I play one of them...

...that at some point,  I’m going to hear you say, “I don’t think so, Tim”?

Wishing I hadn't gotten the Marceau a few weeks ago; I haven't played it much. Would have had the coal for the Immelmann if I hadn't.

Were you in both of the Immelmann games?  I only played two games yesterday, and there was a training room/discussion between them.  That'd be a heck of a shock to have happened into that! *laughs*

Sad to hear you got reported.  Were on you on the enemy team or something?  I don't remember chat being interesting.

The forum has a filter on words, so there's a coded blocker on basic terms I suppose.

As for me, games have always been a hobby and WoWs is as stressful as everyone knows it can be.  So I've labeled my videos as such, just in case.

They nerfed it pretty hard I guess. I remember watching one in testing devstrike a stalingrad.

No clue about that.  Only way that'd be possible is with a detonation, as best I can figure.

I am good even if I had the coal wouldn't buy :fish_sleep: Having only two types of aircraft is a big no-no for me regardless of what type they are :fish_palm:

The first thing that attracts me about this ship is that being a T10 special, she has a stupidly low basic service cost. 

The second thing is that she has both torpedoes (in four-torp salvoes, no less!) and HE bombs. Can you say "Damage over time", kiddies?

The third? That skip-bombing mechanism has some interesting possibilities, not least of which is that if you mess up the run or stumble across a target of opportunity which you've already overflown with the master drop line, you have the option to use one of the closer aim points and salvage the strike somewhat.

I have the indom and you really don't notice it.

With most cv game I often just use 2 types of planes.

If you see over lapping ships you can hit several at once with the drop pattern.

I want to know if you can watch the bombs bounce over your ship?

The torps are not powerful at all. Yes there is 4 but there Graff torps.

Its a very different design.  Ash was showing it off and a d d sailed strait got hit a few time.

Prob on the forums complaining about being op:cap_haloween:

So it's one extra torp over the Graf and one extra chance to get a flood. Then you return with the bombers. At least that's the idea...

Time will tell whether reality matches expectation, but there's enough here for me to be interested in having her.

Like all German CV is the DD.  They have basically no defence against dd.

I think in skilled hands this will be insanely fun and powerful. Div with two T8 fire spammers and just FARM lower tier ships. Enemy team will always be on fire.

I only had time to watch the first video so far.  Great presentation.  While I often disagree with your thoughts on CV balance, I find your content and teaching to be first rate. :cap_like:
