Did they "fix" auto drop for TBs?

Okay okay I know all the "pro" carrier players use manual but I confess I am lazy.

 

Having not played my zuiho for a couple of weeks i was surprised to find that auto drop seems to have ... Changed.

 

it now seems to auto track direction as well as speed.

 

The problem is that against any half decent player in a reasonably agile ship this makes auto drop virtually unusable. By zig zagging now they can basically keep your bombers circling indefinitely all the while taking their toll in AA.

 

not sure what the intention was, but the effect is to nerf auto drop so heavily that manual drop really seems the only option now.

 

this isn't a whine, I know CVs are quite effective.  I just think this change is a bit of a fail.

 

Thoughts?

Uhhh. If I recall, that was already in place since before 0.5.1?

 

Maybe - I haven't run TBs much since I started up the American line.

The bit that was really dumb was the way the AI kept swapping sides, although maybe that was a consequence of the drop being too close to an island?
