It's been less than a week since update 0.8.0 release - a major, and probably the biggest change in the game yet, CV rework. We want to share the first list of fixes, changes and tweaks that are to be implemented to improve new CV and counter-CV gameplay. But first of all we sincerely thank you for your feedback and game activity, as well as apologize for any stress and inconvenience that you experienced due to such a massive game change :Smile_honoring:

 

Please note that all information in this post is preliminary.

 

1. Critical changes and fixes that we're working on right now (to be implemented within 0.8.0 in "hotfix" update ASAP).

 

  • Reduce the excessive efficiency of IJN tier X CV Hakuryu;
  • Reduce the excessive efficiency of IJN Torpedo Bombers (reduce flooding chance, introduce spread debuff when maneuvering);
  • Resolve the "F-spam" issue, when a CV can just recall its squadron at any time without considerable penalties (increase the vulnerability time for the squadron after recall so that players can shoot down some planes before it completely disengages);
  • Do overall AA balancing: shift a part of damage from flak bursts to constant DPS. Flak bursts proved to be an interesting aspect of AA. While they can deal disproportional amount of damage, avoiding them often results in completely insufficient damage to the planes;
  • Do an overall Attack Planes vs. Destroyers balancing. While this is an important thing to do, we would like to indicate that most players seem to underestimate the power of manual AA activation ([P] by default). Due to great DD concealment, if often makes sense to turn AA off until spotted. A DD spotted at minimal range is a lot harder to hit with the first attack run even with rockets. Although, this trick does not remove the need for further balancing;
  • Do additional Premium CV and UK CV (unreleased) balancing;
  • Remove the inconsistency between Des Moines and Salem in close/mid-range AA;

 

2. Changes and improvements that we work on now in the timeframe of next updates (0.8.1 and beyond).

 

  • Improve plane reserves UI (information should be better presented);
  • Improve AA sector UI (better usability);
  • Do additional balancing for individual ships, armament, skills and upgrades, as the statistical data is being accumulated;
  • Clear the minimap for non-CV ships (remove the unnecessary info about returning planes, etc);
  • Finish the development for CV bots (Cooperative Battles);

 

3. Open questions and concerns to be researched in more detail and addressed if needed (no specific update planned yet, but it may change).

 

  • The amount and quality of CV spotting in the new meta;
  • MM limits (our ideal limit is 1 CV per team, very few cases of 2 CV (and always 1 at tier X, but right now the limit is 3 across the board): we would like to change the limits where/when possible.

 

As indicated before, these are the first plans after several days of release. We will keep monitoring your feedback and update you about any further changes.

Thank you, good luck, and fair seas!

I wonder if WG will extend the free capt skill reset and module demount to after the hot fix.  It would seem like the decent thing to do.

they did. as long as they gonna keep working on cvs on live servers I think they need to give those resets and demounts

Also odd tier CVs need to be tested.

So I guess Kaga is going to be nerfed to the point of being unplayable. Wonderful. :fish_palm: 

Let me guess drop her torpedo range to 2.5Km and give her those utterly worthless AP bombs instead of HE. As Kaga is the closest carrier to Hakuryu in terms of attack flights and aircraft reserves she's going to be hammered by any 'balancing'.

And modifying how AA works is going to make her planes unusable in TX matches.
