 i Have nearly 30 Battle in the immelman already  and i would say it is as good as the MVR before the reticule nerf .  Skip bomber is  great against DD on one drop i detonated a full HP kita but didnt get a dev strike ...

i average over 150k dmg already and looking a the last few match of the night that could go a lot more higher , torpedo flooding is a joke even with flag on

here are some of my best match today,

 

The salt farming was great went from 12 karma to 1 back to 5 lol , balance is nearly achieved

I think I recognize you from one of my games. In any case, gg and well played.

Seems like immelman is a pretty good carrier. It certainly doesn't have FDR strike power or health, but skip bombers are a really interesting mechanic and pretty powerful.

Recent premium BB: Flandre

Recent premium CV: another OP flying monkey launcher that the low risk/high reward crowd can use to vacuum the fun out of matches. (Not the CV driver's fun of course, although I find watching planes fly around about as fun as watching grass grow.)

WeeGee still giving us the giant middle finger when it comes to CV balans.

I notice that there's no bugs or glitches. Unlike Flandre, I guarantee WG made sure to test this one before release.

I’ve debated getting this ship as the mechanic looks mad fun. I have much cv learning to do before dropping 264k coal. Nice games there op

Well then, Flamu, maybe you should have not gotten yourself thrown out of the CC programme and actually stuck around to make sure it was tested properly.

(The story of how it got out into the live server without this bug being discovered would be an interesting one, but NDA is a b****.)

From watching videos...Its very easy and accurate to aim skip bombs(you pretty much cant miss)...They drop from long range so AA damage is much mitigated...hits for 10k+ with 2 fires on the vast majority of drops...stacks up fires / witherer like cordwood...Its bonkers...

I didn't know Flamu was the only CC doing any testing at WG. I totally understand his attitude towards WG worsening over time. Especially since the devs can't be bothered to play even one match to test a ship before release.

Skip bombs are a nice change of pace but I am wary of anything german :Smile_hiding:

Flamu was still a CC when Flandre was in testing so he was obviously the one that failed to test it.

To me Skip Bombers seem really bad from the gameplays I've seen.   VERY inaccurate and luck based weapon that will likely miss 3/4th of its bombs every attack, that are mostly useless against BBs (the only thing they can reliably hit) because of shatters on the thick side armor, I just don't see the point when you could be using a Midway and use the same bombs from above with better accuracy.

The torps seem weak on the immelman as well and it doesn't get rockets in any form.  

I'm sure people (like OP), can get good games in it, but it looks really bad to me.   If the torps were stronger or it got a 3rd weapon system, I might be interested, but as it stands, I'm in no rush to acquire it.

It's a good farmer. F for battleships again.

Bombs on DDs are... well, if the DD isn't lit by another source and turns so all you have is dispersion vs. a skinny target, it's a pretty unfavorable RNG roll. But RNG giveth and RNG taketh away, so.

I would its like Indom.  I have not had that much luck   with the bouncing betties yet.  Only 1 good hot for 13k.

Planes die so fast but never seem to run out.  Its an interesting ship.

Isnt it great when you do 150 and your evil and horrible destroyer of worlds. Then PQ puts out a 350k battle and its balanced.  

See you out there.

^This.

To add to what you said, It's a good fire farmer, particularly on BBs. I found it is a lot like Indom in that you rack up a lot of damage but it doesn't area control well and it isn't a good finisher either. 

The skip bombs are fun as hell to use, but they hit the belt armor quite a bit they don't have enough penetration to go through, although you will frequently get a fire or two. In my first game I got 103k alone damage on a Shikishima. He understood how to use dam con and heals so by the end of the fight he still had 1/3 health. The torps are something you use to change up while waiting for the skip bombers to come back or to try to fish for a flood. They are slow, their damage is lousy and their flooding chance is terrible. Even with the skill that reduces torpedo defenses they don't do a lot of damage. The good news is the TBs are fast and you drop 4 torps. 

I like the ship but it is less impactful on a match than Richtoffen by far. It is very, very easy for good players to manage their damage against you by proper angling and DOT management. It also really doesn't do much against DDs. You can overfly them and drop bombs on the first line but it is very unreliable and a waste of cycle times on your bombers unless the DD is very low. (I clocked a 1/4 health Kleber with one and he still didn't sink.). 

I do recommend the ship. It is a lot of fun in randoms. It should do ok in co-op too because the bots don't maneuver effectively and you can skip bomb outside of their AA range. I doubt it will be good in ranked or clan battles. It doesn't have enough fighters to police a cap or provide vision control, and it doesn't have a lot of ability to deal with DDs or smaller cruisers.

The MvR's reticle nerf was heavy-handed and excessive. It got YueYang'd to oblivion.

Oo yes.  PQ just put out a 325k game.  Sounds like a Nerf is in order.

Love the salt...
