AA Defense Changes

The mechanics and visualization of the priority AA sector system have been updated. The goal is to make the efficiency of a ship’s AA defenses depend mostly on the player's actions, and also make the mechanics easier, clearer, and more effective to use.

Some players used to select the priority AA sector at the start of the battle, and then switch it just a couple of times during battle. As a result, many players didn’t notice the priority AA sector's effect on the outcome of conflicts with enemy aviation. It was also necessary to open the special interface menu in order to activate this mode.

Now, the priority AA sector is easier to use and also more effective. It will also require more actions and activity on the player's part.

It’s now very simple to activate AA sector reinforcement: you only need to point the battle camera in the desired direction and press the ~ or О keys.

Reinforcing the priority AA sector occurs in four phases:

  1. Upon activating the priority AA sector, the AA defenses will cause instantaneous damage to enemy squadrons within the ship’s AA defenses action zone, expressed as a percentage of their current HP, and try to shoot down as many aircraft as possible.
  2. A phase in which the ship's continuous AA damage within the selected sector gradually increases, during which the efficiency of the opposite sector's AA fire reduces.
  3. Having reached maximum efficiency, the reinforced AA sector deals damage to its full extent for a limited period of time.
  4. AA sector reinforcement is deactivated. To use AA sector reinforcement once again, you have to wait until the end of the cooldown period, during which the efficiency of the ship’s AA defenses returns to standard values.

Use your crosshair, point at the direction to the planes coming towards you and press O

Is a 20second burst, so only do that when the plane come into your AA range

Not just "O", also "`" right next to "1". It's easier to reach than O unless you're an octopus.

Wait if I can't aim my AA how do I know if it going to hit or not?

 

AA mechanic divided into two, Continuous Damage and Burst Damage.

Continuous Damage, as its name will always deal damage. This is unavoidable and will bring down a plane HP every tick. Continuous DPS can be buffed by hitting the AA sector reinforcement (Using the ' or O key by default)

Burst Damage in this game are inflicted by a flak cloud. Flak cloud can be seen as a black smoke puff in the sky. Burst damage only deals damage to the planes if they fly into these flak clouds. Burst Damage deals much more damage than Continuous Damage, and unlike Continuous Damage that deals damage to the last plane in a squadron, Burst damage spreads them into the whole squadron.

Burst Damage also applies when you activate the AA sector reinforcement. This burst damage is different than the one above. When a plane enters your AA range, you can activate your AA sector reinforcement. The selected AA sector will deal instant burst damage to the squadron in the said sector. This instant damage is unavoidable. However, this burst damage is much lower than flak cloud's burst damage.

 

TL;DR Continuous Damage and AA sector reinforcement's instant damage always hit, Flak Burst Damage only hit if planes enter a flak cloud

Hi, I'm new to this game how do you aim your AA gun? I keep getting destroy by plane

You can't manually control where your AA guns fire, what you can do is improve your ship captain's perks and install AA upgrades

And turn towards approaching torpedo bombers. Most of them will miss.
