    WoW, NA is very SALTY about the CV Rework

    It is a mixture of both. In theory it is infinite, but in practice there is a soft limit. How it works is you have a fixed number of planes in the hangar. But that number regenerates as planes get shot down. For example you have 10 planes in the hangar, you take off a squadron of 6 planes, so now there are 4 planes left in the hangar. 2 airborne planes get shot down, so now you have 8 planes left both in the hangar and in the air. Since 8 < 10, your CV will start making more planes and place them in hangar. It will continuouly make planes until your total number of planes (both in the air and in the hangar) hits 10 again, then it stops until another plane gets shot down. So if you lose all 6 planes in the squadron, you will only have 4 planes left in the hangar. You can sortie them immediately, but you will only have 4 out of 6 planes in your squadron. If you want 6 out of 6, you need to wait until your CV makes those 2 missing planes. If you lose all of them, you will have to wait quite a while before you can send up a full squadron again. So yes, it is possible to run out of planes in the short term if you are reckless with them, but you will never be completely deplaned.

    Yeah so what's the hurry? Why is WG rushing this? This is the biggest change since the game went live. I know WG is aiming to finish it fast, just so they can say "Ring in the New Year with the new CVs" or something like that, but they should be taking as much time as needed to implement this carefully and properly. What worries me is WG has not said anything about non-CV captains and if they will get captain skill resets. With WG stating that the balancing process will be done on the live server, I feel that ALL captains should get free skill resets for the entire balancing process, or at least the initial part of it. Non-CV players should be given the opportunity to spec into AA for free if they so wish.

    WoW, NA is very SALTY about the CV Rework

    They are salty for a good reason though. The rework is not ready, yet WG is all acting like it is. It going to be Graf Zeppelin all over again. There are still plenty of issues that WG needs to look into. Tier 4 CVs are absolutely horrible to play, plus you are stuck with them until you hit Tier 6. AA is still an RNG fest with little skill involved on the surface ships' part. AA effectiveness is still too disparate between tiers and ships; during the TST as a Hakuryuu tier 8 ships were simply fodder to me, while my Montana was more or less impervious to any Lexington. Plus several other issues, not including the bugs that still crop up from time to time like the one where you lose all control of your planes. WG needs to slow down and work out all the kinks, yet they are blazing through rework just like the reworked Midway fighters using Engine Boost. The most hilarious thing is WG really, really, really doesn't want you to control the CV directly. You know, the one thing that almost all testers have been asking for since day 1. Here is WG's post on the dev blog: For those who can't or won't access Facebook for whatever reason, here is what it says. So there you have it. WG's reasoning is that they don't want players to be distracted. Yeah WG is assuming players to be so bad at multi-tasking that they would fall out of their chair if they ever had to had to switch back and forth between the CV and the planes. (Then again to be fair to WG, judging by the average skill level of the playerbase, I am not surprised if they are actually just that bad. As I type this, I just encountered a Zao who died to a bot CV in coop, because he sailed in a completely straight line for 3 separate torpedo attacks. Next game encountered a Baltimore who did the same) Not only that, but WG is so adamant about not allowing CV control that they are going to implement an automatic consumable activation system! Why not just give ing CV control in the first place instead of dumbing down the game even further? But I am going to address the elephant in the room and state what I think is the real reason why WG refuses to allow plane-CV control switching , the real reason which WG doesn't want to admit. The game engine is unable to handle it. WG doesn't know how to implement plane-CV control switching but they don't want to admit it, hence all these stupid reasons for not allowing CV control. Why else would they not want to add such a seemingly simple feature which was almost universally asked for since day one? The bug I mentioned earlier, where you can launch your planes but can't control them except by using the mouse because the keyboard is still tied to CV control, is a clear piece of evidence. So either WG is downright lying and misleading, or apparently the playerbase is just that dumb at multi-tasking. Don't know which is worse. So what we have is CV gameplay that is forcibly modified to be playable on for consoles, on a game engine that can barely handle it, being rushed out way too early. Add to that how WG just downright ignored or glossed over player feedback, and you can see why so many players, including myself, are very salty.

    New premium: HMS Exeter

    Yeah WG needs to be very careful with this thing. On paper it looks ridiculously strong.

    Interesting stuff from the RU forums

    There should be a Dynasty Warrior mode along with it. Each player has 100 PT boats to accompany them. Many ships to sink!

    The captains skills are good but why do they look like that lol. Lunar New Year event maybe? Can I get Yamamoto dressed as a samurai? Or Halsey in a cowboy hat? I want my British captains to wear a top hat and monocle! WG plz.

    Super Containers Mega Merged Thread

    Just got 50k free xp from a SC from after choosing the More Resources option. Can't complain, though I have to see that mythical Steel container.

    Fail Platoon Rant - Come get Triggered

    Sorry Max, but you are out of line here. Sure, blame WG for letting fail divisions and CV anchoring occur in the first place, but insulting new players and labelling them as idiots is totally uncalled for. Since when is it ok to treat new players as idiots? Is it wrong for a new player, who probably only start playing the game a few days ago, to division up with a friend and have a couple of games together? At 56 games it is highly likely they don't know how the division mechanic works. I remember one game where a Tier 6 Fubuki ended up in a Tier 9 game. He and his Tier 7 division mate didn't know that MM only takes into account the higher Tier ship. So rather than raging like the rest of my team, I just politely informed them how the division system works and advised not to fail div in the future (we actually ended up winning). Remember, everyone was a newbie once. Don't expect new players to instantly know everything. It certainly took me more than 56 games to learn what fail divisions are, that's for sure. Heck, I have been playing for over 2 years and I still learn something new every once in a while. And in what way is this unsportsmanship? By all means, report them for playing badly, but for being unsporting? Again, is it wrong for a new player to division with a friend? Geez, is this what people use the karma system for? If so, I am not surprised so many people complain about having 0 karma. Damn straight nothing is going to happen. Because there was nothing wrong in the first place. The fault lies with WG for letting fail divisions happen, NOT the new players.

    remove CV or give me stronger AA

    Yes that's what I meant. But surface ships would still need to spend the next couple of minutes doing nothing but WASDing. And with how fast planes fly in the rework, it doesn't take long for the CV to send a fresh squadron to harass again.

    Op of the Week - Cherry Blossom

    I actually like Ultimate Frontier and Newport for that reason, even though imo they are among the harder Ops.

    Op of the Week - Cherry Blossom

    This could be it. But honestly I don't really mind. Imo this Op is one of the, if not the, easiest of all the Ops in the game. Very simple to get 5-star wins. This to grind my Cleveland through to the Seattle.

    Is this the correct build for Bismarck?

    Personally I would swap Expert Marksman for Adrenaline Rush, and Basics of Survivability for Superintendent to get the extra heal and other consumables. You can still pick EM and BoS once you grind out the last 5 points.

    remove CV or give me stronger AA

    Equip AA fire director and high angle green gun for AA Cut-In. In all seriousness though, current CVs can't hit you with 4 TB squadrons in 30s unless it is a double CV match. Even then it probably means you were horribly out of position. With the new CV rework though? Then yeah you better hope you are AA specced and have catapult fighter and know how to WASD hax. Because the new CVs can hit you again and again and again until their squadron runs out, and then come back a minute later to repeat the entire process.
