I know it's too late, but something needs to be pointed out.

So what's the plan?

Here's where it gets interesting, as there are many options to choose from.
Obviously we haven't spent months modelling these odd-tier carriers just to scrap them. At the moment we intend to transition them into second carrier branches of aircraft carriers with alternate gameplay styles - another way to influence the battle, a different approach to claiming victory for you and your team, as well as different interactions with allies and enemies. There are a lot of different options here: they could do a little less damage and assist their allies more instead in different ways like spotting enemies or through other advanced capabilities which were abundant with aircraft. It's possible that some types of aircraft in such alternative branches would be able to set smoke screens, saving heavily damaged ships from destruction. They might also be able to help allied battleships with putting out fires, or even land on water and capture objectives. Aircraft might even have something in their arsenal to help combat submarines should that ever become necessary.

So they are considering turning aircrafts into an all-purpose weapon of war. Missing Hydro and Radar and DAAF aircrafts though. Why not also area RP aircrafts while we're at it? 

Who needs DDs when aircrafts can set up smokes and cap points?

A plane "capturing" a patch of water isn't really more arcadish than a ship doing it.

Not a bad thing on its own, but the balance is completely out of whack thanks to all the unnecessary gimmicks (*cough* RN tech tree *cough*).

Exactly !

Vote  1  now, to delete DDs from the game completely !!   

I'm very sure there would be more than just a few who would like nothing better......  it's already World Of DD now anyway.....

 

 

Who's with me?

I remember linking these articles last month when some commenter was lamenting about losing the odd tier aircraft carriers.

I used these articles to try to say that WG would probably bring them back eventually. They then said that they didn’t believe it, WG had no plan, were clutching at straws, and were only saying that to get people to shut up.

NOW everyone is worried that WG is actually going to go through with it...

With or without stupid and/or unnecessary gimmicks?

That's the question that I care about.

Yup, I was one of those. And my stance is still the same. Don't put too much stock in that article. Because it is freaking silly.

This idea seems more stupid than my average post.... I expect return of the old RTS for the odd tier CV....

what the hell is happened at WG office? Plane doing capping?

I am quitting now....

 

Good luck and fair seas

Each iteration seems to be jumping more and more sharks.

How about they fix the current state of the game before more gimmicks?

I'm not really sure what all this is about, it seems to be rumor mongering and tales of false doom. Something this forum is good at.

Quoting the 3 month old post - "Certainly not all of these ideas will make it into the game"

Perhaps all this thread has accomplished is the creation of false outrage. And right now, false outrage seems to be the flavour of the month.

Remember, loose tweets sink fleets.

More like "mild, concerned reaction".

Mild concern is the flavour of the month?

I must be in different forum.
