Could Saipan be balanced without a nerf? What if they removed saipan's F4U Corsairs from Essex & Midway and either found a new Tier IX or moved the F8F down to tier 9 and found a new Tier 10 plane, then they could increase survivability, dps and speed of all aircraft (including IJN and KM) except for those on saipan by a certain percentage (that would make Saipan gain air supremacy but not as easily) that still kept saipan powerful but not as OP as it currently is when with AS then at the same time saipan will receive a buff to it's loadouts (maybe say, 122 option added and 122 can have more planes per TB squad just to keep some people happy)?

What they see as balance is since overall wr for saipan is not breaking 51% ,since the srubs and noobs flood to buy it even though they cant utilize it to their full potential.

Not to mention it is the nbr 1 ship for a bot right click to dominate a player :Smile_trollface:

The 2 above cases drag Saipan overall server performance down , but anyone who has a knack for CV know how crazy it is to face an experienced Saipan

Saipan has been exceptionally good even before the ammo buff to US cv in general. The buff remove the one fatal flaw it has : ammo issues. Now it has the same endurance , the same rate of attrition like any one else while besting everyone else in single combat.

One nerf i perceive possible is to increase ammo usage for strafing in a Saipan , so that they cannot happily strafing anyone else on sight or alternatively , reduce strafe cone area of effect so that more aim is need when you strafe in a Saipan.

I couldnt careless about the legal issues. I have the right to complain about a product as a consumer :Smile_sceptic:.The product Kaga has the same cost as the product Saipan while clearly inferior , clearly it is a violation of the law isnt it :Smile_trollface:.

Most problamatic is the sh** storm that follow every premium nerf where every madman cry and whine even when they deserved it.

Well, some way to "balance" the saipan is to further reduce the disparity between the planes of the different tiers. Make it so that the 4x T9 squadrons can be comfortably overwhelmed by 7x T7 USN squadrons when strafing are not involved.

 

Edit: Though that would be a buff to the equally broken Kaga.

3/4 of the time my carrier planes will not follow exit strafe commands -_-

I hold down alt and click right by my planes with the strafe area facing away, but nothing happens. Sometimes it does work though.

So WG sees no problem with saipan's in excess of 60% WR on the RU server!?!? and this is info from warships today, How do I know this info is accurate? Because USN tec tree CVs naturally sink to the bottom of the list ( best reliability test ever XD ). And even if WR is an unreliable way of judging just look at XP Saipan consistently out performs T8 CVs and even out performs some T9 CVs (like Essex, Essex and Essex but not Taihou on 2/4 servers)

 

Below are WR stats not XP

Just checked on asia wows numbers managed a whooping 48.75 % wr on average an 38k average.

This is just to know that even with a dream platform dummies will still manage to fail admirably

Just filter for the top 50% in wows-numbers, suddenly...... Saipan is pretty OP. Kaga is still a bit higher in WR but it will soon drop once the battle numbers grow bigger.
