  1. Why there is no British CV line?

    Attacking personal status altered from the topic discussed is merely a sign of inferiority. According to the forum rules, I need to have 5 battles to be eligible to post. May I ask if there is any other rules written that 1k battle is not enough? There is no fight everyone off. People said their opinion, and I said my opinion. Opinions might be different based on each person background experience and opinions might against each other. That is healthy in a community. The unhealthy one is when someone saying an opinion and then answered with a bully by attacking personal status. It is much better if you would say your own original opinion (if you have any), rather than to suggest to follow other's opinion. Please don't be afraid. My ships all are virtual. They don't really drop bombs and no real torpedoes. I also don't have real shells to throw at anybody. We discuss, we play, we have fun. Nothing should be afraid of. Sounds good enough for you?
  2. Why there is no British CV line?

    Please don't feel like that. Experience gains along the time goes. When you face better opponent, yes you might say you have less experience. So is vice versa when you face worse opponent. About that AA stuff @Exiaa mean, I also get his point well. Please allow me to reaffirm what I said: my AA is for myself, and I mean it. My fighters are not goal keeper to prevent reckless player charging alone and then become an appealing target of opponent striker. If they are stay in the formation, opponent striker will also think few times before decide a daring strike. I will not bother to send my fighters across the map just to intercept opponent strikers that would reach my team. My fighters are assigned for air superiority duties, which is: clear the sky and killing opponent strikers to weaken the other CV. Should in case the scenario is opponent strikers reach my team, I'd rather follow them home and intercept them along the way to prevent them back for good. It is pointless to try to please everybody. You do what you need to do. If the request is: I should able to cover AA safety with my fighters; I would say again: No. Your ship have talents cope with the situation, and my fighters got their own task to be completed. You are not impolite at all. I really appreciate you for a good discussion although your point of view might different than mine. This is what a forum for. I just flame those who try to bully without using their brain. Those who answering out of context with a complain that has no relation with the topic. Agreed with this. This also I agreed. If I may ask, is this referring to previous statement that mention attacking multiple target simultaneously? If so, I would say attacking multiple target is possible but situational. I'd prefer to focus to stop one threat rather than deal with multiple target without same effectiveness... Unless the situation allows me (or forced me) to do so. About this one, your priorities might be different than mine. I would rather target opponent CV as my first priority. The next will be the rest of other types. DD is favorable when I am with HE Diver Bomber ready, or the DD is somewhere among small islands where it is challenging to avoid torps, or she is currently staying still hiding in smoke. You have full right to think about a player is good or not. I also didn't say I am good. I said I do have experience. This maybe a bit out of context, but I would love to answer this one: What people think about me is not a matter. I will keep developing as the progress planned. Nobody gonna report you if you really reach that tier by grind yourself. From the way to present your thought, and the way you understand words, you don't reflect a person with 3k battles of 47% rate (or maybe that is a co-op rating). I had only 5 or 6 recognition so far, but nobody ever report me yet. Please tell me who is that guy that make the 47% rating? I never ask for AA support from the beginning I play until this moment I write. I know the feel to be nagged, and I will not nagging for a cover. Lol. I had that. Lured to an Atlanta. It is a cool joke though.
  3. Why there is no British CV line?

    Answer: Experienced: Yes I am experienced as a full time CV player of both nation. Win rate: NO, I Can NOT beat more than half a time. My win rate currently at 44% Spotting: Yes I do provide spotting on potential target. That's why you whining here. I know you can't hide if there CV in play. AA cover: No, I am a CV, not your baby sitter. My AA is for myself. Strike importantly target simultaneously: Yes if only necessary. You said, "only skilled players can actually play it properly." You said, "Adding a new line so inexperienced CV players can start ruining mid and high tiers with their antics,..." Are you trying to say that inexperienced players managed to reach mid and high tier without gaining any experience start ruining mid to high tier with their antics. Man, do you have a brain? Whose brain you use to write such inexperienced analysis in this thread? Ah yes, have you ever heard about World of Warships? You should try to play it man, it is really a great game.
  4. Why there is no British CV line?

    I agree on this part that T7 and above is stressful to play. (I even see it from T6, the tier where strafing mechanism is applied). As a CV player, I see that it is a huge touch for the balance. By that mechanism, it allows the player skill to override the ship and the commander qualities. It prevents inexperienced players who have money to just go buy a premium ship straight and then ruin the battle. T4 to T5 have a huge flaw that can be exploited. Once you have a 10 skill commander on them (air superiority skill), you are most likely to excel in any battle. What I used to do to exploit is: Launch all the squadrons to the sky, and then send them all together to target opponent CV estimated position (Launch to the sky, NOT to other CV position straight from your runway). You may adjust the course slightly to avoid other surface ships from being harassed by AA guns. If while on the way if the enemy fighter spotted, just simply pass it. If it dares to attack, you just assign your fighter squadron to engage. The rest of striker squadrons continue their journey. Target the CV, release armaments, back to ship. On the way back you can see opponent squadron already cleared from the sky. No player skill necessary, no situation analysis necessary, just no brainer actions to follow step by step guide and you'll be fine. If your captain doesn't has "Air Superiority", while opponent on the other side has, your chance to win is extremely low, although both of you are experienced players. It is not stressful, but it is really broken. T6 above is balanced. CV bridge is not for everybody. You can't just jump to play a CV based on your 1000++ battle experience of other ship background. About this one, I have no clear idea. But yes you give me some insights to guess in the dark of why they are not present yet. Blueprint designs, specs, etc., can be found in detail at www.armouredcarriers.com Your explanation about the capacity is also logic though. US CV averagely carry 80 aircrafts while RN CV averagely run with 51 - 54. Despite the logic explanation, there also a factor to appeal with capacity issue though. If we see Italian BB line. They also have the same situation. They don't have every BB to fill until T10. But however, WG managed to release them in a partial tier presence. So is it maybe the authorization bureaucracy of UK that is complicated? Lol. Only WG knows. It is working. If it is not working, it will be CV players who will complain and nobody from other classes will complain about CV mechanism. If other players complaining of CV, it means CVs are working too well and their presence becomes an annoying harassment. CV is not for everybody. The skill ceiling is extreme. If you are inexperienced in CV and you play CV in high tier, you will just be a free citadel. If you are experienced, then you have the capability to turn back the table. Please allow me to add a little correction: USS Enterprise is a premium ship. The original non premium for T8 is USS Lexington and IJN Shokaku.
  5. Why there is no British CV line?

    Dead class? Do you have any reliable sources to prove the statement other than a random video about a guy which what he play on the screen is not even seen? On my side, I have 6 of my invitation codes used by new players all switched to full time CV players, which they are on T6 now. If you want I could write down all of their IGN. I have 12 out of 21 in my office who play WoWs plays CV as their main. One more... 4 of them offers to buy my account just because I have a Kaga and Saipan on it. Ah maybe that just me, and my office. I could expect you will post a deep research statistics stated that the whole world left CV and it is a dead class now. Lol.
  6. Help regarding cruiser gameplay

    Indeed. One must choose either Hydro or AA. Despite any of the option chosen, both are still excellent features. About the French BB, are you referring to Dunkerque? There are some reasons of why I choose Graf Spee instead of Dunkerque. Here are some of my personal consideration: 1. Reload time: Graf reloads for 20 secs compared to Dunk at 28 secs. Means more firing spree for my impatient trait. Lol. 2. Detectability: Graf has 13.14 km compared to Dunk at 16.92 km (original without any other influence factor). It means more space to swimming around with dolphins. 3. Turning Circle Radius: Graf has 680 m compared to Dunk at 730 m. Everybody loves tight hole, isn't it? 4. Rudder Shift Time: Graf has 10.3 secs versus Dunk at 14 secs. Honestly both are still big ass lame snail for me. XD 5. This one is the decisive factor that is a deal breaker of Dunkerque: AA Capability. Graf has excellent AA capability, Dunk has a meh one. I can't paste the whole AA comparison due to the details of gun variant to gun variant. Meanwhile in T6, AA capability is one of the keys to survive. As you you can see how tight is T6 Independence torpedo wall (With Air Superiority skill), T7 Kaga's enomormus aircraft stock, or even T8 Enterprise fearful AP bomb. Those AAs on Graf are actially not capable to swat the squadrons off the sky but at least, it will make Graf Spee become a less appealing target than Dunkerque. About Des Moines: Hell YESSS she is a must have. Aye Capt! Working on her now. PS: Please let me know if you actually referring to a ship other than Dunkerque.

    Exactly. I agreed with that. I love the Germany lines. They are unique. My background is from CV lines (both nations). When I play conventional surface ships, I want the characteristics as: fast moving, fast shooting, good damage, and... tank as well. I can't find those at BB gameplay. They move slow, fat, and their loading time is painfully scourging. So something that reloads 28 secs or more is not definitely for me. On the other hand, US CA has rapid fire rate but too squishy for me, and they can't heal too. At the end, I found myself fits Germany ships. Graf Spee is one of my favourite. She possess acceptable speed, good AA, great brawler, fairly heavy punch, and great reload time (20 secs)... And torpedoes too! Too much if I would say about Graf Spee; hydros, defensive AA fire, all are just splendid. One thing if I may give correction about Germany CA: from T5 above, they are not fragile at all. Especially Graf Spee, she is the most tankiest cruiser I ever had, and she also has access to heal. For her tier, I could consider that she is a tier bully. Other than Graf Spee, I would recommend you to try her bigger sibling: Scharnhost. She is considered as a BB, but she feels like very Graf Spee, with more guns and powerful heal.
  8. Why there is no British CV line?

    There even 7 classes out in total 73 British CVs of WW2 period. These classes are not included with Aircraft Maintenance Class Carriers and a French CV that sail under Royal Navy flag: Arramanche. Royal Navy carrier classes are: 1. Long Island Class Escort Carrier. 2. Ruler Class Escort Carrier. 3. 1942 Light Fleet Carrier. 4. Courageous Class Escort Carrier. 5. Illustrious Class Aircraft Carrier. 6. Implacable Class Aircraft Carrier. 7. Bogue Class Aircraft Carrier. (This one we already have in game under USN flag. British version: HMS Ravager). Thank you for your opinion. How ever the explanation didn't answer the question. If you whining about CV mechanics and game play, it should be addressed to the other concerns, and no relation to CVs variation. Doesn't matter WG put the whole nation have or only one nation have, there still only maximum 2 CV in a match for each competing team. If the mechanics is broken, then you still cope with the same problem... Doesn't matter the whole nation have or only one nation have. Brining other nation CVs into the game (Nation who eligible for it), will only adding variations and options to CV players. Let's say if one day WG make mistake by bringing in a super OP BB, the BB always score good rank in every occasion; should we whining for all BB must be deleted? Referring to Graf Zeppelin and Enterprise rank you highlight: A particular fail on certain ship cannot be blamed to all ships of the same class. I agree if Graf is a fail. But not for Enterprise... It is just the player who is cool, she is definitely not a fail. Balance is forever problem in an online game. Moreover if you addressed the comparison between high skill and low skill player. Doesn't matter what game it is, doesn't matter where on the universe it is, and doesn't matter what class is played; the low skill one will always get owned.
  9. Why there is no British CV line?

    As the title said... British had abundant CVs during WWII. Some of them scored great impact in history, they also have specifications that not less to US and JP counterpart. Not only CV, the DD is also too less for a nation with title "The ruler of the waves".
  10. Help regarding cruiser gameplay

    Hi, Please allow me to share some experience. I was from CV line before whole my life, and had the misery life like you do when I start on my Cruiser line. For beginner (pros please don't complain me. This is beginner experience): 1. Stick with the team, don't advance forward like what DDs used to do or experienced CA used to do. This mean you don't kick your engine right at the battle start. 2. Choose a position that covered by other ship rather than the most outer line from enemy position. Let them open fire first. You will see who turn the ship away, who charging like no brainer Spartan, and who try to dance under the "rain". 3. Choose your opponent. Take out the weakest, crippled, and frightened first. Know your ship spec well, so you can measure at what range you can perform citadel hit against target ship. 4. Start with HE. Open fire and then burn burn burn until you sure target used her damage control item. Then you charge forward to a range you can use AP to citadel hit. Make sure you aware the situation is safe for you before proceed. Don't make yourself the no brainer Spartan. 5. Get more experience on how other experienced cruiser player game play. Good luck and fair seas! I'll see you at battlefield.
  11. Thank you Pocket_Fox and User_1145141919810. That answer my question perfectly.
  12. Hey All, I would like to ask something about skill Manual Fire Control for Secondary Armament. If I am on zoom mode aiming something far away on my main battery range edge, and then suddenly a DD shows up within the secondary guns range, will they shoot the DD (Although I am not targeting the DD)? Or will they stand still until I target the DD? Thank you.
  13. 1.Crying furiously at the chat when all ships advancing to the front line immediately after the battle begun. They left my poor CV alone at the back line. I thought CV is supposed to be guarded by battle task force isn't it? A CV should by guarded by Destroyers, Cruisers, Battleship, and submarines at ALL TIME! You hear me!? AT ALL TIME!! Unbelievable!! They are all noob aren't they? 2. Flew my fighter squadron above the f**kin ship that shoot down all my bombers previously hoping anybody onboard will get shot from the fighters. I thought fighter squadron can help to barrage those crew who handle AA guns. 3. Strafing enemy fighter squadron that follows my group of bombers resulting I lost the whole 3 bomber squadrons. I thought strafing only affect opponent unit.
  14. Hi, What kind comps and give away items that could get me a Diana? Is it through event? Quests? ...or any particular tasks to do? I am an ..... old player... as old as I got almost all T6 classes of different trees and nations, and I want a Diana.
