Anyone else notice that like Tier 7+ US CVs are getting destroyed or not played at all? In the past two weeks the midway hasn't been played once while the hakuryu has over 1000 battles.

2 week stats show 687 battles for Midway vs Hakuryu's 1052.

 

Not as bad as you stated but still not very promising.

Yeah USN CVs are played less and less, for me it was the constant buff to AA that got annoying

"CV's were nerfed based on overwhelming feedback from the community in favor of fair balance."

 

Farewell and thanks to the devs who showed courage in face of potatoism

Dude. There were people with 90+% win rates in CV's coming out of Beta. If you actually read the whole comment through till the end he even says they will try not to make them OP again. WG never buffs or nerfs on feedback alone. Feedback just makes them look at the issue.

Meh, I've mainly played after that and did fine, trick is to chain and when you get to Lexy all bets are off. But yeah when in ranger you main instant damage dealer is one squad and that is never fun

After Independence yes, they're a lot rarer. But thanks to the CV MM, I ran into a lot of Ranger and Saipan nerds on Hiryu, and now it's typically a Lexington.

 

I suspect people are just sitting on a particular carrier and not going up past a certain tier.

 

Now if WG wants more people running CV, gonna need to rework the class and give it more means of handling AA and DF. Pretty much every cruiser I run into brings DF, even German cruisers. As a CV captain, it's annoying that a button press instantly makes my bombers panic.

Actually I enjoyed the Ranger. before the AA nerf I was (in my own opinion) doing a great job of keeping enemy CVs from attacking my allies!:unsure: but when they nerfed the Lex, It's basically now a tier 8 Ranger but with stronger AA and a few extra 2ndry batteries! which isn't too apealing....:amazed: ( or at least not in my opinion)

Last time I took out my lexi it seemed perfectly fine. I kinda prefer playing it over my shoukaku just because the planes can live through bombing runs.

May IJN CVs quickly follow.

 

But not before you get to Hiryu so you can kill all the Arizonas, right?

if it keeps up with the nerfing of US cvs, they wont be played anymore. if they nerf IJN cvs, people will stop playing CVs all together. CVs are just dying

The USN CV flavor is being bad.

 

I agree but the one bright spot?  Tier VII Premium "Saipan."

 

Because it plays like an IJN CV.

And the "National Flavor" of USN ships is Superior AA (nevermind that not all of them do get that).  So, what happens when there are no CVs in a match?  Well, that National Flavor is 100% useless that match :teethhappy:

It's an unpopular opinion but I feel all CVs should be re-worked and ultimately buffed.  Right now BB don't have a natural predator to keep them in check.

I think DDs fill that role. I'm only at tier 5 in the U.S. CV line and it sucks hearing that the high tier stuff isn't competive I was really looking forward to the Midway.

At low tiers this is somewhat true.  At hightiers BB are much more survivable and maneuverable.  A small course/speed adjustment means your torpedo salvo misses completely.  Closing to point blank range is much more dangerous due to the much better secondaries and accurate main guns at higher tiers.

 

Can BB die to DD?  Sure, but it's not what I would call a natural or strong counter.  Carriers are, or were, absolutely devastating to an unescorted BB.  With the buffs to BB AA and the nerfs to CVs since the game went open beta carriers are much less effective at damaging, much less outright sinking battleships.

 

A BB and CA traveling together should absolutely be a tricky target for CV, but at the moment a BB all by itself will still likely outmaneuver or kill a full carrier strikegroup coming at it.
