Try dodging 3 torp squads. gg wargaming.

"Hm...how can we make Jap carriers different?"

"OH! Let's have the same amount of aircraft as US carriers, but split them among 3 squadrons! That way there will be less aircraft per squad!"

Yeah...try dodging 3 squadrons of torp bombers. Tell me how that works out for you, hey.

You know that the top spread on each IJN squad is smaller than USN's right?

 

It's because They have less planes

Combine 2 squad = Very narrow TB attack

At least you can dodge American torpedo attacks. How do you dodge 3 squadrons attacking you at the same time? Also, the spread might be smaller, but that also means that you can send in torpedoes from many different directions, making a hit almost guaranteed...

Whether that is sufficient counterbalance for the increased tactical flexibility vis a vis multi axis attacks remains to be seen.

 

I am so conflicted on CVs. they take the two worst aspects of WoT arty, massive alpha and long reloads, and increase them. In competent hands they can be devastating and are death to BB's but the thing is that doesn't bother me terribly because its a solid reflection of the progress of naval warfare. From the first use of scouts and fighters during WW1 to the stage managed sinking of the Ostfriesland and on to the Bismark, Taranto and finally the supremacy of the CV in the Pacific. Overall I find the CV's rather boring to play (even with the satisfaction of a successful strike) and BB's less enjoyable than cruisers. All in all WoWS is proving to be WoT with floaties for me.

IJN Carrier is too OP eh.. But the worth of one plane being shoot down by AA fire or fighter planes...

Well if you can't dodge it, TAKE IT! 

BB are born with health and armor for reasons, they also have the repair ability to soak up damage too.

 

If you want to dodge torpedoes instead of taking them, play Cruisers.

I do find it ironic that the widely acknowledged air superiority of the US is represented by having inferior air power in game.  All the same I do love all the new stuff, being dying to talk about it for the last 3 months and now I can!

How inferior? AA guns will affect IJN squadron more than USN. 2 plane down and thats already 50% of IJN squadron strenght.

 

2 USN squad = 3 IJN Squad

in this case IJN have 2-3 TB squad while USN only use 1 TB Squad (up to lexington)

Inferior intensifies!

Try Air Superiority setups.

They're fun to use and the only real downside is the loss of exp due to dealing low damage to ships.

I don't see any air superiority setup anymore, in other words they remove it

Yeah, just saw it.

Down to 2 fighters and 2 dive bombers.

 

Oh hey, they also removed the MM table. *Sigh*

 

So far this patch feels like...
