A video by Flambass viewing and commenting on WoWs preview into their CV rework.



I am not a CV player, have only played 1 actual CV game.

I don't like it, neither from the viewpoint of a non-CV player, nor from the stance were I a CV player.

And no fighter planes.

Can only run 1 group of planes at a time, so cannot send out groups in various direction to scout enemy ships.

No running 2 torpedo squadrons dropping torps in a cross pattern.

No immediately following a torpedo squadron drop with dive bombs to set them on fire immediately after they used their repair to stop flooding.

CVs needed a big nerf from the start.

It makes no sense, in such competitive 12v12 matches, to have the play of only 1 or 2 players per team (the CVs) have such a huge influence on the outcome of said match.

Then there's all the other BS. The hugely imbalanced "Borg spotting" issues, near invincibility for the first 3/4s of every match, and being able to repeatedly attack with impunity in many tiers.

Despite CV players' rampant crying about their planes getting shot down in the high tiers, the CVs still managed to easily reign supreme in the player result stats, unsurprisingly. The Tier 9 & 10 carriers held the top of the results charts for years, easily beating out every other type. Yet they still whined. :roll:

On the other side of the CV tier spectrum, they've resorted to seal clubbing the mid tiers because they have no way to stop them. Torpedoing with impunity.

Carrier Cancer has had it way too good for too long. I lost sympathy for them a long time ago. They're dead to me.

In the end, it just ends up being another example of Wargaming fucking up a generally enjoyable game by adding a completely different style of play which cannot be balanced with the rest of the players in the same game. This happened with their first hit, World of Tanks, and it's ridiculous "spy satellite laser targeting" gameplay for those running self-propelled artillery (the reason I originally quit WoT). Likewise, they've spent years attempting to nerf artillery in WoT but, AFAIK, could never find a balance - because it's impossible. Same situation here with CVs; neither side will ever be happy. Therefore they should've left it the hell out in the first place.

It is not wise to start yielding when you're winning.

What I recall of the game, I never quite enjoyed them aircraft in this particular game at all. It was the implementation, really and the notion that everyone else is fighting WW I.

We all know how much Hancock hates DD's, which are on the surface but sometimes difficult to spot.

Wonder how he will feel about submarines........ :lol:

I would tend to agree with you there.

CV players with hovering aircraft AND now all the ships with radar have made the life of a DD captain very difficult.
Adding the responsibility of ASW to their jobs is a step too far I think.

In the few times every week or so I do get on, I am applying my new strategy....which quite frankly I learned from other players and makes this game so frustrating otherwise. I hang back, wait for the smoke to settle, then zero in on half baked cruisers and BB's.....its wonderful life..... :D :D

Another bonus code for WoWs: AREUKITTENMEFURIEND I think it gets you 10 flags of some sort

I logged in, it actually gets you 2 personal missions: First one is KITTEN PURFURST, complete 4 combat missions of "Kitty Purrfurst" series, receive a Kitty Purrfurst flag. The next combat mission you must destroy 5 ships, you will receive 10 India Yankee Flags

Redeem the code in the Wargaming premium ship, then you have till Nov 9 to complete this

Speaking of DD's. Yesterday I had a good game in a Clemson, 108,000+ damage, 5 sunk, 12 torp hits, 92 gunnery hits, 4 "devastating strikes", 1 double-kill in 20 seconds (whatever that is called), "Kraken unleashed", 8 floodings.

I have a screenshot but I dont know how to post it.

Sounds as if you had an epic battle.

If you have the screenshot saved as a file on your computer, click "Choose File" below, locate the file on your computer, click "Add the file" then place your cursor in your post where you want the screenshot to be, click on "Place incline", then click "Submit"

PS to walk through this I had to choose a file, this one was as good as any.
