Now that there is a severe shortage of AA targets these ( I feel your pain CV Drivers )  days. Praps WG could come up with  an option where i can dry dock my Cleveland and swap out all that useless AA for ....Say....A dozen 68 knot 12 k Torps? That'd pretty much match the spider web infested AA i have right now. =D

As USN and IJN's CV player, those CA & BB AA are OP. Try to do bomber routine, you will comeback with half of your squadron, before even release the bomb or torpedo.

Second, the AF's barrage are killing the fun. 1 unit could wipe anything on their path, don't care how much unit in it. If there 10 unit, those 10 unit could be killed by a single barrage with only use 2 ammo slot. RIDICULOUS.

Are they using Laser Cannon Air Fighter in WW2 ? Barrage is a Bull-T-Shirt.

I made the mistake of logging in for a few battles before I gave up again; seems remarkable there are that many people out there who can be playing tiers 6-7 and have absolutely no [redacted] idea how their ship is best used, or how to focus on the victory conditions, yet there they were in every battle, on my side (my favourite was the ~840 base exp I got in tier 5 where we lost ~1,000>70 points with me as the last alive and the next best exp on my side being 430). 

 

One thing I did notice in my tier 4-6 battles was that there were 2 CVs in nearly every one I played (about 5 I think). As I recall, the only one without 2 CVs had 1.

 

So if you're not seeing CVs it doesn't mean nobody else is. I had to spend most of my time dodging/trying to deal with planes. World of Air Pollution again. If I wanted that, I'd go play a flight sim.

CV population estimates

 

Tier 4 - 5 = Plentiful

Tier 5 - 6 = Above Average

Tier 7 - 8 = Below Average to Rare (you mostly get tier 6 ones who have been uptiered to fight tier 8s, which is silly because the planes they have just get mulched)

Tier 9 - 10 = Extremely rare to non existant (though the ones that do show up are extremely good and can carry entire teams by themselves..)

Funnily enough, its not too bad a thing at times, players often get complacent and don't do squat when i send a attacks on their precious ships. they often underestimate the power of a well placed torpedo attack. In saying that I do miss the days where I shot down 40-50 planes with my USS New Orleans from 2 tier 8-9 CV's swarming a single tier 10 CV

I usually hang around T4-T5 , i say there are alot of them such as having one per team in one match .However , the possibility of cv being present in the team is low .
