Now the rocket planes are useless. Even a BB can doge rockets.

What's the point to keep rocket planes?

 

Edit:

Add a case here so people can understand what i am talking about.

After update, first match of FDR:

Land only 10 hits on Thunder, it's like 80% of rockets missed.

BBs can't dodge rockets.  Most cruisers can't dodge rockets.

They still can hit battleships.

1 rocket hit is "hit";  10 rockets hits are also "hit". They are different.

In this update, rockets are likely miss than hit compared  to last update.

Personally I was never a fan of rocket planes even before the recent change. DDs should be harder to hit compared to larger ships.

My idea is get rid of rockets planes and let CVs use both HE and AP bombs on DBs (it would be like switching shell types where it takes time to load)

So you're telling me you're throwing 30 rockets on a BB and you cant even land one. 

 

Seems like someone reaally needs to git gud.

I went back to Tiny Tims and usually can thump a BB pretty good with them. BBs are all I will target, however, with rockets unless a CA or DD is setting still.

Why your imagination goes so far?? I don't get it.

Who told you I throw 30 rockets?

Does "BB can doge" mean "I cant even land one"?

Why you cannot face the problem of rocket plane? 

Why you ignore WG's fault but focus on personal skill?

IDK what your on about, I'm doing just fine landing my full payload on BBs, mostly full pens. Cruisers are about the same, and while it is harder, I have gotten some hits on DD players. I think this just may be the case of you need to adjust, or maybe your just trash and need to learn to aim.

Your last sentence tells me everything I need to know about you. When you call your lack of skill "WG's fault" I dont need anything else to say. 

 

I am not the one complaining that BB can dodge rocket. But I know from experience a half decent CV player can guarantee a hit on BB and therefore can guarantee damage on the BB.

Maybe this is just me, When I shoot a ship with AP, and no damage is done, I change ammo type.  As CVs have 3 ammo types, I suspect that if one type doesn't work maybe one of the other 2 types will.  

 

Sure we see posts on how insane the armour is on some ships, but generally, those will burn down.  I haven't seen the OP armour posts for some time so I guess players adapted.

Haven't looked yet...

So I brought up a Saipan against a low IQ bot Faragut in a training room.

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME ?????  ARE YOU SERIOUS ??????    CHANGE IT THE HELL BACK !!!!!!!

I'm sure I'll get better with practice.  I've done drills like this in the past -- but this was no contest.  Saipan is useless against DDs.

Why stop with removing Rocket planes?  I'm supporting the removal of CVs.

Oh look rocket planes get a huge nerf that still isn't enough for some people what a shocker :Smile_ohmy: They might as well remove rocket planes :Smile_hiding:

I'm a DD main and can answer these Q's.

1 Facts not imagination. Based on your scenario with FDR.

2 FDR launches 30 rockets per attack flight.

3 BB dodges like a turtle. My torps tell me that. Aiming makes all the difference.

4 The problem isn't the plane but the player who needs more practice to "adapt" (yes I said adapt) to the new mechanic.

5 WG's fault is having too long a delay between machine guns and launch. Success comes from skill.

Go practice, mate. Until you git gudder I'm gonna enjoy my "Get Missed by Rockets" card!

Let's hear the tune you sing when your CV is unable to reset your cap in a standard battle.

Right and the chance of resetting is even slimmer now :Smile_sceptic:

I'd say that since you don't actually need to hit to reset, that the DD either deserved it or your CV is terrible.

I had a Audacious cv, do a good job on my Z52 today. Rockets did a good job on my DD.

Yes, because a ~4 s delay on rockets is terrible and makes it impossible to hit DD's, but the 5s delay needed when shooting at DD's in cruisers is perfectly acceptable and causes no issues.

Well, yeah..  They used to be.

I've been working out in the Training Room.  The easiest way to hit DDs now is with BOMBS.

It's not just the delay with rockets, it's a whole new mechanism and the animation is screwed up.  There's a click or double-click to fire, and a delay for when machine-guns start firing.
And the animation is all hosed up based on whether you have remaining fighters or not.

Not to mention, spotting goes away immediately after hitting the fire button.  So you don't see what you are shooting or launching at.
This 'new thing' has the look of just being dropped from an ivory tower without being checked out.

call me old.

To me, FPS is a new thing and it does feel like a pile dropped out of an ivory tower.  In RTS the easier way to hit DD was bombs.

My Musashi confirms that battleships CANNOT dodge rockets very well, if at all XD
