Tech Tree

With reworked carriers comes a reworked tech tree. Let’s take a closer look:

Now aircraft carriers will be only at even tiers (tiers IV, VI, VIII, X). The tier gaps allow for more dramatic increase in effectiveness as you ascend: better performance at the new tier, more aircraft per squadron, better weapons and, more damage and opportunities to influence the battle. But, with great power comes great responsibility, and the price of making an error rises: enemy air defense will be stronger and maneuvering a large squadron between the gaps of anti-air fire will become increasingly difficult.

Of course, this change will affect the efficiency of the matchmaker. It will be faster to join battles with an aircraft carrier, because the players in this class will be concentrated on fewer tiers.

Changes will also affect the economy: the moving from tier to tier will be more expensive both in experience and in credits; however, it will be less than the old transition between two tiers. For example, the transition from the new tier VI to tier VIII will be, in total, cheaper than it is now.

 

Missed opportunity to put in game so many famous/historical CVs I think. Wasp, Yorktown, Hornet, Shinano, Unryu, Soryu, Illustrious, Malta, etc.

Only CV captains will get a free reset....

Well, the direction centre for catapult aircraft now only works for catapult fighter. On my Yamato, I use it specifically for 2 spotter planes. I hope I can get a reset for this.

Seems fair. Interesting to see how Saipan turns out, her major flavour was T9 fighters and AS. Which s now being more or less removed.

I think Entropy_Sky mean how many new players, who just reached T5, got bullied by Saipan and Kaga before the CV rework. I know this because I have Kaga and got reported from time to time since I keep deleting T5 ships.

Yep, grade A CV logic right there. Get reported for deleting ships, get reported for not deleting ships. Get reported for continuously spotting that DD, get reported for NOT continuously spotting that DD.

Get reported simply for playing a CV: CV gameplay in a nutshell.

Much like DD play: continuously spotting a BB - get reported, NOT continuously spotting a BB - get reported.

Carrier Split

 

Example Long Island -> Bogue

Hermes or Argus

WG is full of nonsense. And once again they have proven they have 0 idea what they are doing. Might as well replace CVs with airfields. That would solve the CV sniping issue at least.

Oh and their reasoning for not letting players directly control CVs. "We don't want players to get distracted!" Friggin hilarious. I propose that surface ships be unable to steer while in binocular view. Don't want to distract players from their aiming right? Also it would help level the skill-gap between unicums and potatoes. Brilliant idea. Please implement WG. :Smile_smile:

I used my blood and sweat to get the zuiho and hiryu. Now knowing that they will dispose of them, I'm just devastated. Even Taiho is being scrapped; a historically existing ship. We only have the Hakuryu which is a paper ship.

I'm also a bit iffed at their reasoning as to why we can't control CVs directly while in squad control. Surface ships wise, people (especially those with poor situational awareness) often don't pay attention anyway when they are in binocular view (which leads to them sailing into friendlies, torpedoes, shells that citadel and/or delete them, or in rare occasions an enemy ship that they didn't realize was there), so why make it easy for them?

That being said, I think everyone here missed something on the bottom of the panel:

What will happen to the rest of the aircraft carriers, you ask? The answer: researchable ships that have not reassigned in the tech tree will be removed from game for now.

Our precious Essex, Hiryu, Taiho, etc etc etc aren't gone permanently, nor will they be permanently barred from the game (if they hadn't been added yet). They will be "shoehorned" in a tier they fit best (e.g Essex is likely to be tier 10, Hiryu tier 8, Taiho tier 10, Shinano tier 8, etc etc). 

I'm actually kinda surprised at my faith in WG even after being a personal witness to their shenanigans for 5 years.
