This is like enterprise an advanced specialist of cv aimed at hardcore and experienced cv players.It is not for a common grunt who play other ship or just buy it for the cool look.

If you cannot make an underdog cv work you wont make this thing work.

It is not good , but not unplayable if you seriously train for it.

Farm salt with AP is very pleasing with this thing you know. BB are everywhere and they love to bow on.

I'm might regret this but if you just run one plane type, the FW190A5-U14 (fighter/torpedo bomber) might stop her being underpowered.

even unicrum player cant make this piece of floating @#$ work, dont even bother paying 60$ for this @#$%.

i'll rather buy triple a games than paying for this. or multiple VN games on steam.

Yeah, I can get a brand new triple A game on Steam for the price of this pixel bote. Or 2 if there is a sale.

Even as a captain trainer the GZ fails, as there is no German CV line. $60 is rather steep for a lacklustre Premium which can't even train Captains.

And it keeps on getting better. Looks like iChase's CC status was terminated because of his Graf Zeppelin review video. 

First Jingles, now iChase. It seems that WG has been burning through their community contributors lately. I wonder who is next. Notser? LittleWhiteMouse? Who knows.

Lol , VN should be brought anywhere else that is not STEAM.

Anyway , it take serious skill to make this thing even work decently and it takes certain condition to work.

But it is not totally unplayable.

Yeah , i agree that this thing is overpriced for what it has to offer. It should have been a tier 7 ship with that setup,or WG can buff its FT reserve by 10 so that it can burn other CV with its 2x FT

Thanks for the reference picture. Might want to include this instead of Fi 167 on my plastic Zeppy

Playing against Graf Zeppelin is just so fun XD even it I'm a Lexington, The 2 FTs are unable to beat your 1 FT those 3 DBs are already out matched by 1 TB let alone that TB and a DB. Graf Zeppelins are nearly always bottom 2

 

However, I've no explanation as to why Zeppelin is actually doing better than Lexington, These stats don't make sense

Kids, practice "free speech" responsibly.

IChase did,WG didn't like that he called them out on it and chucked a hissy fit over it.The problem is that management types these days can't handle criticism and and the same time can't see what they are doing wrong.

 

If WG stop repeatedly doing dumb things things all the time then they wouldn't have to deal with constant PR problems.

Well, I heard from a WG employee's wife/GF that WG had a massive overhaul of its employees awhile back (Or was it they walked out) and the new management where more concerned about cash than brand image

I also have my gripes, complains and bitching about the ships and test ships. I don't hold back on my feedback but I FORCE myself to arop short of doing what Chase did. 

I agree. He did go overboard (see what i did there) with the comments. Showing restraint and professionalism is something that should be adhered to at all times. Firing rants at employees of WG is a step too far. 

 

That said he should of received a harsh warning and not termination - But that's not for me to decide.

I don't have the time to go and dig deep (Yet), but if calling out the departments responsible for the Graf Zepplin screw up is all that he has done, I'm all for it. As customers, we should have every right to comment and call out those responsible for errors. Just like how America calls out Trump for judgement they think are bad, I think IChase has every right to call out the WG departments. If we aren't allowed to criticize what is going wrong and those responsible for it, then it is just an attempt to hide the flaw and not face the truth.

He had ties with WG.

 

He was allowed early use of ships in order to make vids for PR purposes. He helped WG, and WG helped him. Fine.

 

But his role was to critique the ships, not the staff. He had free reign to give opinions on ships, but not people.

WG aren't going to reward him for dissing the devs, publicly badmouthing colleagues is not a good look.

Adios Amigos.

 

So the moral is ~ don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Personally, I do think iChase was slightly out of line, but seriously it was nothing to warrant his expulsion. He said something along the lines of whoever is or are responsible for releasing the GZ should be fired. Does that really warrant his termination? He wasn't saying anything threatening. A bit insulting maybe but it was more an expression that WG had done a horrible job. And if someone did a shoddy job, shouldn't they be called out? It is no different from people calling for the resignation of whatever politician/CEO after a scandal.

So I suppose Notser should be axed from the CC programme as well? He did say he wanted to give whoever was responsible "a piece of my mind" after all.

At the very most iChase should have been given a stern warning and perhaps a request to take down the video. I am not sure if WG tried that initially but he refused.
