Seriously, it's laughable when the class that's supposed to do this is doing worse than the class that isn't supposed to do it  I'm looking at you T8-10 BBs

Really depends on which cruisers you're talking about.

 ​ALL of them I would rather strike a Mogami than a Amagi.

I think you also need to spec the upgrades and captain skills to get the most effect. Last night I division-ed up with a guy in a Fletcher who speced his ship with all AA buffs he could get. He consistently shot down 20+ tier 10 planes per game, and I think his record was 36 or so. (We had a tier 10 Japanese Carrier in our div, which is why we always had carriers in our games)

AA has already been buffed across the board.  CV players have a tough time finding a viable target to hit now, so buffing AA further would make most ships invulnerable to attack from the air.  They are almost cornered into picking on DD's now.

My Hipper is built for AA and even with stock hull it can take down T9 squads pretty fast. If some people have crap AA it's most likely due to them not specing their ships with that in mind.

I play CVs regularly and I can tell you this. The issue isn't the CVs entirely as AA currently is just messed up the cruisers have lost their potential as AA platforms and the USN CVs (which I'm currently playing) fail to even get near BBs due to their stupid amount of AA alone. What would have been better was the NERF BB AA and give it to the cruisers.

 

If you want a video of this I can pull one up right now

I'm 95% sure the reason BB's are getting more plane kills is because CV's try to steer clear of cruisers, or at least I do.

It's not that your AA isn't better, it's that carriers don't go after you unless they have to.

The Japanese cruisers are supposed to be weak on AA, so no.

​And so are the IJN BBs

 

So what's the problem that legitimatizes a buff to IJN AA?

Or you could just nerf BBs AA. Then cruiser AA would look better by comparison :trollface:

So, instead of "dakka dakka dakka" for AA, you just want "BRRRRRRRRRRT"

​IJN BB AA > IJN CA AA

 

Ah yes. Let's give IJN Defensive Fire an even more annoying damage output. Just kidding.

Let me know when battleships get access to Defensive Fire.

 

The Iowa has a permeate Defensive Fire just without the panic on planes :trollface:

The panic on planes is what Defensive Fire is for. So no, Iowa having a high AA damage output isn't really equivalent at all.

Really? I wonder why the AA multiplier is there then.....

It actually is when all your 4 squads die before launching a single torpedo or bomb while trying to approach the Iowa (even though I think they fixed that since T7 CVs can't meet T9 AA anymore).

You complain about the weak AA on IJN Cruisers but forget the many things that replaces those AA guns. Torps for example. Does your Amagi have Torps? No. Is your Amagi capable of starting the panic mode? No. And just for you to know the Mogami has a weak AA as she was a T7 long ago and the Myoko was at T8. And buffing the AA on USN Cruisers is not necessary at all. Des Moines has already the third highest AA barrel damage behind the Montana and the Midway.
