Last week, I decide to continue US CV & play my Ranger. At first, meet another Ranger & Japan Hiryu & Kaga (Premium). My Ranger had 50-50 chance. If I screw up, enemy wins. If enemy CV screw up, I win. Both fight hard, stalemate ... in short, skill became sole factor. Nothing weird until I met Saipan (US CV Premium). I can't win fighting this ship, it just too OP. Multiple time I play my best, just impossible. I cannot fight Saipan head to head neither able to support teammate. All I can do is to watch my teammate get bombed or getting torpedo by Saipan. Because my only 1 fighter cannot able to fight off Saipan's fighter.

Both Saipan setting, 2 Fighters (@3plane) + 2 Torpedo Bombers (@3plane) OR 3 Fighters (@3plane) + 1 Dive Bomber (@7plane), I cannot beat the Fighters. Even worst if the Saipan Commander had Air Supremacy skill, became 4 plane in AirFighter units. The only chance I can even this if the Saipan's player are pure idiot, which hardly it can be happening. So, this is just absolutely broken.

Due note, my Ranger Admiral already had any necessary commander skills for CV & upgrade ship to maximize fighter combat prowess.

The saipan has been broken for a long long long long and long and even longer time my friend.

And did they do something about that milk cow ? No , non , nothing.

Anyway , if you dont have nerves of steel like Special Forces do , or an M or a plain idiot like myself i suggest you find something more fun to play.

Devs have suggested that they have a new CV iteration which are more action focused ( borrowing elements from the failed WoWP )

WG cannot do anything negative to premium ships due to their fear of chargeback from potentially overzealous customers, which is why they're adopting the (controvesial) new EULA that permits them to do things that many other online games did for years- tweak their ingame items (at least that is how I perceive it).

 

Saipan's "gimmick" is IMO its T9 planes and the no-loss-of-planes-on-strafing-out-of-dogfights. Hopefully they can balance the Saipan without having to change what appeals it to people- the gimmick.

 

I'm interested to see how the Saipan and the Kaga compare though.

 

I want to see how the new CV plays tho, maybe we can have one on one dogfights Battlestations Pacific style.

There is only one way out when facing Saipan

Commit seppuku. Especially when Eugen's piloting the saipan.

On the upside after the CV rework Saipan may never go on sale ever again (unless they figure out a compromise that means UK CVs will be a line of saipans if they do)
