    Are you delusional? OBVIOUSLY it's worse now. 

    Trying to grind through my Monarch just now, queue reads 25 CVs, 5BBs, 4 Cruisers and ZERO DDs... yeah, this is going to go well.

    Enter battle, yep, 4 CVs. 30 seconds in I see them coming straight for me. Pop my fighter, they fly past, Saipan hits me for 4 torps in the first pass and 3 on the second. Implacable rockets me. My fighter with its 60 second fuel tank runs out and lands after shooting down a mere 2 planes I'm below half HP after barely a couple mins of play.

    They're back again before my fighter CD runs out. My pop guns shoot some potatoes at them, more torps hit.

    After battle report.

    Time spent in battle 05:47
    Damage Received: Artillery (HE) 4/3,267
    Torpedoes 13/50,068
    Rockets 6/8,910


    I manage to shoot down 16 planes total. And land 6 HE shells on the only ship I got close enough to aim at.
    Enemy Saipan gets 6 kills and 2,500 base xp, his most played ship and a 70% WR in it with 225 battles. He's also on a 55%WR in his Hakuryu and 57% in Midway with both over 100 games yet in surface ships he's mostly under 50%... 

    This game is broken. My days are numbered as well.

    He's not wrong. It's almost certainly worse than before. I wouldn't say it's unplayable, but it's pretty broken.

    xamdam reacted to Sir_Feather in Thank You   
    You blame the whole idiocy on CV without ever playing one? Sorry but I really double check your stats (by legal way of course), and you happen to be one of the kind of players you are calling out. Your only good stats come from Scharnhorst & Tirpitz, while your stats on the non-premium counterparts are horrendously bad to mention here, especially on the IJN BBs which ironically got their AA vastly improved since CV rework. And the biggest irony on this thread is the fact that your experience in this game is more than twice as much as the 3 others here as I wrote this down. But yeah old timers can either be a wise or a senile man...

    Second post ever , and it's a flaming stab , oh my i'm dying from laughing.
    Ever since the CV rework hit the server , devs have already stated that they will allow 2 and 3 CV per side battle , and that's like 2 - 3 months back.
    Why don''t you kindly and graciously read the changes before hit that play button. You can stab me all you want , but the facts didn't change that you don't do your homework before whining.

    First post one the forum and whine about CV  LOL ...
    Where have you been , the patch notes i'm pretty sure already have mentioned the changes. Are you one of those guys who are too lazy to read ?
    I mean come on , it's rare but it's been 2 patches already for god sake.

    Totally buggered the game as far as I'm concerned, DD are impossible and cruisers are almost impossible.
    Not spending any premium money here any more..
    anyone want some second hand ships, just a few holes

    xamdam got a reaction from BigWaveSurfer in Off to hiatus once more and over.   
    Well, my premium just ran out (well, actually in a couple hours but... no motivation to play) so I'm off to the mothball fleet again.

    Hoping things stabilize. Not happy AT ALL with what Wargaming has done to this game. Flip flopping between over powered chaotic CVs to over powered AA has left the population confused and excessively cautious. Blobs still move around even if there isn't a CV in the match. Ships can't be spec'd out with any certainty as the hot fixes continue to swing the game-play. Now that respecs are no longer free, it's a waste of doubloons to try to keep up. Yeah, I know there will be another reset in a couple months but it makes no difference. It should be free as long as they keep making changes. 

    Now to go work in the yard. At least my wife will be happy.

    xamdam got a reaction from dejiko_nyo in Reasons why New Carriers have ruined the Fun in WoWs   
    I used Aegis to grind through the Ryujo. While not much fun... I found that I could consistently finish in the top 3 of my team by simply focusing on the 5 convoy escort ships (that have no AA...) and the Ishizuchi and Kongo that spawn in the north. 

    The best I could do on the first wave was land a few fires with rockets or maybe a couple citadels on Ishizuchis with bombs but I didn't waste torpedo planes on them.

    Going for the Fuso would shred planes so it was better to concentrate on the other two BBs first and hope my team would shoot Fuso. If enough time remained, I could help them when finished.

    Rinsing and repeating this I could usually break 120K damage or so. It was boring as hell though.

    4 days left on my premium and it's off to mothballs for my fleet. This is not fun from any viewpoint, be it on the surface or in the sky.

    Thanks Wargaming. I was playing too much anyway. Back to see what's happening in the real world.

    Your stats would argue otherwise.
    Hakuryu, before the rework: 42 battles,  42.86% winrate, 922 PR, 80,024 average damage
    Hakuryu, after the rework: 13 battles, 69.23% winrate,  1150 PR, 107,197 average damage

    xamdam got a reaction from Alaska22 in CV rework day 1 observations   
    Completely agree. 

    Just tried 2 battles in Monarch. You know that stealthy Tier 8 British Battleship.
     
    First match, tier 10. Spotted by planes less than 1 minute from spawn (and for the most part, the rest of the entire match...) focused by BOTH enemy Hakuryu (67% WR, 16,000 battles) and Lexington. Managed 14k damage before being overwhelmed by torpedoes and fires. Ate 7, 3 floodings. Finished off by enemy Izumo's HE volley that set a perma fire.
    Next match, stayed with blob as long as I could, again Tier 10, enemy Midways (both purple players). They ignored me at first but once it was my turn, RIP.

    I'm sure they were giggling like little girls while flooding me, flying around for a bit while I repaired and... flooding me again.

    14 days left on premium. Going to spend it in ops maybe and grind some cash. Resetting all my captains and removing modules then, mothballing the game until either they do something or I forget about it and uninstall.

    Thank you Wargaming for destroying any fun that was left.

    xamdam reacted to Sir_Numpty in Suspended from chat just for abusing CV players?? WTF!!!   
    I can't believe it! For the first time ever I've been suspended from chat and the reason?? I've been abusing CV players!! Sure I've been questioning their parentage and pointing out that their manhood is significantly smaller than that of a modern day mouse, but honestly what do they expect?? If wargaming didn't expect this then they would have put more effort into balancing the Carriers. And if the players didn't want to be abused then they just wouldn't go a carrier. I really can't see the problem here.
    Cheers,
    Ant
     
    EDIT: OMG, people I'm being Ironic, flippant, silly, goofy. Of course I deserved to be suspended. I was gobbing off in chat. I wasn't being personal, just abusing carriers in general. I do think the carrier play is stuffed, but its not the players fault who play them. Chill people and have a laugh.

    xamdam reacted to Max_Battle in Social Wolves - An Ops Div Group   
    Hi everyone.
    We are an English speaking Ops Div group. Everyone is welcome, we have no national exclusivity but we speak English.
    We are not a clan. We are simply a group of players who enjoy divving up for Ops. You will see many [CLAY] and [TF44] members in our divs but all are welcome regardless of clan, non-clan or skill level.
    We may shoot off in groups of 3 for some random PvP sometimes but we mostly play Ops with the goal of 5 starring and mutual benefit for silver and XP for all involved.
    Search for and join channel "Social Wolves" in game and say hi. If you join the channel and there is an open spot you will probably just get sent an invite to join anyway.
    You can PM me or Taipan17 in game or on this forum if you like.
    We are often most active afternoon-evening-night Australian time but that is not set in stone and is not locked in in anyway.
    All are welcome. We have players of all skill levels in our group and we do not judge - though we may chortle 😛
    Please don't be offended or put off if we are full. We often do have a full div but we are always looking for more Social Wolves to fill up games.
    We have many people who play with us who have never divved before or who have limited experience playing with others or playing Ops and that's fine!
    We only ask that you pay attention to chat and follow task deployments that we discuss before and in game to maximise the outcome for everyone.
    During this time of CV adjustment, Ops may be just the antidote you need!
     
    Note to mods: I have posted a few threads on this subject, often directly relating to Op of the Week. I'll try to keep this one running as a generic Social Wolves thread so we don't have to keep posting every Op of the Week rotation.

    xamdam reacted to Soloun in CV rework day 1 observations   
    I just played my first game with the new CV's. It was a T9 I was in my Ibuki as that's what I'm leveling, it was a 4 CV match and yea as expected a totally new game.
    I've never liked the idea of CV's in the game simply because I wanted a ship V ship game, not ship V plane game.
    I've only got a few days of premium left so not a huge loss but I was wondering if there is anywhere I can apply for a refund for all my premium ships and premium time?
    This isn't what I bought into closed beta to play, I'd like to know if there will be a money back offer since the very nature of the game is now changed beyond recognition? 
    Perhaps I'm over reacting? All I know is last night I enjoyed playing, even with the losses, tonight 1 game and I'm good thanks :) Not really interested in being fodder for peoples planes, as a ship only player I honestly feel like I'm being grief ed by the CV players. 
    For the record I was still alive at the end of the match but was being cut down one bomb / rocket / torp at a time :)
    This isn't fun for me, it's not enjoyable for me, and I don'y play so others can have fun, I spend money and play so I can.
    I guess I'm evil because I don't agree with the vocal minority that will post against this in these forums. 
    Anyway iit was fun, maybe it will change for the better in a few weeks, maybe not, there are other games then this and a change might be a good thing.
