    Grand Battle is great with a few buts

    Finally done with this game mode. Super boring with everybody either on a lemming train or sniping from max range all day or both. Nobody is playing cruisers, just BBs and DDs with 50% of the CVs being Max Immelmanns just looking to farm damage. I don't see how anybody can find this fun unless they are playing a DD or they like playing passively and sniping. Good thing is since stats aren't tracked I have been using this game mode to further test CV rockets lol.

    Let us share all we've got about Kantai Collection!

    And I done with this event. Picked up Suzunami yesterday and just got Makinami just now. So that's all the new girls rescued. For the remaining time, I think I will farm E-1 for Jingei who failed to drop for me in her debut event.
  3. Judging from their performance in game, I think it is safe to say that yes, most players are indeed unable to multi-task or have situational awareness. When I play CVs I see so many people sailing in a perfectly straight line, completely unaware of my presence until my torps slam into their hulls. Many times too there will be a low health enemy popping up broadside in full view of a teammate, but said teammate will continue shooting at some angled BB in front of them. I have seen some players post screenshots in which their minimaps are absolutely tiny, even worse if they are playing on those 4k super ultra widescreen monitors. You can't see anything. I suspect they don't actually use their minimap. As somebody who grew up playing RTS like Starcraft and C&C, glancing at the minimap every few seconds or so is a natural habit for me. It boggles my mind how other people can even play the game without using the minimap. It is such a useful tool.

    New CV mechanics

    So I spent the whole day playing around with the rocket planes. Overall this is a big nerf for all CVs, It is extremely hard to attack a DD with its AA turned off. However some CVs are hit way harder than others. On paper Tiny Tim users like Midway were hit the hardest, but in practice this is not that big a nerf considering they should been using their HE dive bombers against DDs in anyway. Same goes for the Brits, they have their level bombers. FDR was ill-suited to go after DDs to begin with so this nerf doesn't affect her all too much. Enterprise is hit hard, though she can still do good damage against DDs if they are distracted and your aim is good. A 3.5s delay is still manageable, but the nerf is definitely felt. The biggest losers would be the IJN CVs and the Graf Zeppelin imo. The IJN rockets have a very long prep time and the rockets neither hit hard nor do they have the quantity. With 4s prep time it is nearly impossible to hit DDs unless they screw up really bad. This means they permanently lost a viable squadron to play around with, as hunting DDs was pretty much the only thing IJN rockets were decent at .Sure, you can use rockets against BBs and cruisers, and the adjusted height of the rocket planes does make it easier to hit island campers, but with how little damage they do and how much time and effort you need to put in it to set them up effectively, it is better to just stick to torps and your AP DBs. Use them only because you are cycling your other squadrons. Graf Zeppelin was also hurt bad for similar reasons. While the rockets do hit harder than the Japanese ones, they also have a 4s prep time and there aren't a lot of them per salvo. Meaning even if you estimated perfectly, RNG can still screw you over. It is really not worth the effort to use them against DDs. Thus, like the IJN CVs, the Graf Zep lost her sole method of attacking DDs. She can try to use torps, but she doesn't get the fast torps and short arming distance like her tech tree sisters, so it is a lot harder to pull off. Surprisingly enough, I feel the Audacious rockets are still pretty good against DDs. It feels like WG tweaked the aiming reticule of the Audacious rocket planes to make it much tighter and more accurate. This plus the sheer amount of rockets fired means you can saturate the target area with a good amount of rocket hits as long as your aim is decent. A 3s prep time is pretty manageable. I found the Midway HVARs to be similar. If you have something spotting the enemy DD beforehand, you can get some good damage in.

    Should I...

    I am wondering if they are going to do the same thing for Tone. If so, I would rather save my coupon for her and buy Ise without discount.

    CV's

    Because that is how the burden of proof of works. You assert that CVs are OP, you bring evidence to back your assertion up. And so far your evidence has failed to that. Nobody is giving you replays because you are asking for the impossible. Nobody is expecting to avoid all damage as a CV, except you. Because it is stupid. It is like asking to avoid all damage from surface shells, which is also impossible unless you are cowering behind an island somewhere. Again, why this double standard? Why do you expect to dodge all damage from a CV, yet you don't throw the same hissy fit when a cruiser HE spams you to death? I am still waiting for an answer to this question. What you can do against CVs is mitigate damage and reduce the likelihood of CVs targeting you in the first place. Just like how you can mitigate damage from surface ships by angling and not over-extending. You mitigate damage by turning into rocket and torpedo planes and presenting your broadside against dive bombers. You reduce the likelihood of CVs targeting you by not over-extending and sailing in the company of allied AA. That is what everybody is saying. Expecting to dodge every ounce of damage is basically saying you should be immune to CVs, which is a completely unrealistic expectation. If that is your expectation, no wonder you are finding CVs OP. And will continue to do so no matter how much they are nerfed. But whatever. I know nothing is going to change your mind because you don't have the mindset to improve. You are not looking to get better, you are just for reassurance and affirmation. You want somebody's shoulder to cry on and for them to tell you that yes CVs are OP and there is nothing that you could have done so you don't need to improve. It is ok, here look it is a replay where I was attacked repeatedly by a CV! Let's all cry and sob over how CVs are OP shall we? 20210618_211250_PISB109-Lepanto_47_Sleeping_Giant.wowsreplay Nah, the difference between you and me is I don't cry and throw a tantrum every time I am attacked by a CV. I knew full well the risks involved and what was going to happen, but I went along with my plans anyway. So when I got focused it was really of no surprise to me. Was it the best plan? Probably not, in fact it could be considered a bit of a potato move. But I got 2nd best score with over 2k base xp too (because what do you know, plane kills + caps are actually pretty rewarding), so I am certainly not complaining.

    New CV mechanics

    Yeah. I mean DDs are already limited to taking overpen damage against BB-calibre AP and SAP anyway. So it is not as though this is something new.

    The Wait is Over

    Going to be saving up my steel for FDR. If that fails, I will use my coupon on Max Immelmann most likely.
  11. WG has explained this before. They do this in order to space out the highly anticipated lines with the meh ones. If all the anticipated lines come out earlier, then there will be nothing to look forward to down the road, because all the good stuff is already out. It may not be an explanation one may agree with, but is certainly not an unreasonable one.

    Am I investing too much in this game

    Spend as much or as little as you want, as long as it is within your means.
  13. I like to think the anti-Russian sentiment is all just memes. But yeah for some of the reactions it is pretty hard to determine if those are just sarcastic comments or if there is genuine resentment.

    Post the replay instead of a cropped pix that doesn't tell us anything.
  15. This line looks pretty weak to be honest. Seems like the idea for Soviet CVs is to use concealment to get up close, park behind an island, and launch planes directly at the enemy before their speed boost runs out. Like a island hugging cruiser, except it is a CV. Of course, it still depends on other characteristics like the planes' aiming and such. For all you they could have super good accuracy.
