So I was thinking is there possible the developer will add any escort ship functions near the future so example Aircraft Carrier [CV] could bring in 1 of their Destroyer [DD], Light Cruiser [CL] or Heavy Cruiser [CA] as a escort ship??? So the escort ship could provide Artillery and Anti-Air support. Well I recommend this because I saw Navyfield have this function and also current the open beta a lot of Commanders rarely provide Artillery ot AntI-Air support to Battleship [bB] or Aircraft Carrier [CV]. So I think if this function added Battleship [bB] and Aircraft Carrier [CV] will not need to worry on the oncoming Surface and Aerial threats.

Because CV Desperately need more Buffs......

 

Defending themselves are one of the skills a CV needs to learn.

 

Also, You don't need to Spam Topics right? There's like 4 of them today already. Things like this one are rather pointless and posted in the Wrong Section.

No matter how much CV is buffed there still getting trolled by enemy surface threats so still need a escort ship to fend itself from Surface threats.

You can ask other players or division mates to do that.

 

You already said the answer players and how many commanders will escort our BB or CV since half of them love to rush and division mates yeah but not often right??

So They need to Dominate the Air, Impossible to get close to, and if you are lucky enough to you will get Bu__ Ra__d?

 

Give it a think about it before you spam topics like this.

We all do know that US CV had the air superiority and the IJN had the advantage on their bombers not their fighters. Anyway Escort ships will do its job.

You did not answer my question.

 

Aircraft Carrier can sit at the back playing RTS game, and when a DD work really hard to sneak in and try to kill it, Nope - There's a Big Cruiser/BB there to defend the CV.

 

Balance?

 

CV are supposed to be vulnerable to Incoming ships. Sorry, the world does not circle around you.

Sorry if you think I am rude,

 

Your Ignorance to how Strong CV Currently is makes me chuckle.

 

If they do get killed by a sneaky DD thats 101% their fault for the lack of situation awareness and Camping Blue line instead of Following the team.

So you want to make CV invincible to any threat?

 

You already said the answer players and how many commanders will escort our BB or CV since half of them love to rush and division mates yeah but not often right??

 

If they don't follow you, then you follow them. This game is about teamwork, learn to tag along with your team instead of forcing your team do to your deed.

This is clearly CV captain's fault, because they sit at the back of the map and not follow the fleet.

 

Adding AI escort ships changes only 1 thing: from 1 player commanding 1 ship to 1 player commanding a division.

The bad thing about this is that it partially removes certain class's weaknesses. Battleships and Carriers have escort ships and are rather invulnerable to enemy DD or aerial attacks. This, in other word, is indirect nerf to DD and CV class, which only further complicates game balance even further.

Also, adding multiple AI to each player in every match creates alot of strain on the server. Seeing how has WG limits the availability of training rooms, I doubt the feasibility of such feature to be implemented without breaking down the server.

Hmmmmmmm well hard to said so maybe they will add it In the near future. And is not the CV Commander don't want to follow is they all can't keep up due to it speed or they follow then they getting target by long range BB, CA or CL. As for me I see CV I target CV rather than BB or other classes. As a CV player I sometimes struggle to decided where should I move or move with the fleet.

Nope - you pick a class to play not multiple classes for each battle.

You wan't to do AA - bring a CA, you want to RTS - bring a CV, you want big guns - bring a BB, you want to be sneaky and get one shot by everyone who sees your torps coming from 20km away - bring a DD.

Sorry, I don't think the ST-ers will let this through.

Let me think - Any CV that is Tier 6 or above had 29 knots or slower speed?

No one said you need to "Stick" with your teammates, You can sit back ~3-4km providing close air support.

 

As a CV player I sometimes struggle to decided where should I move or move with the fleet.

 

Play till Tier 6 before calling yourself a "CV" player. You don't have enough experience yet.

Also, this already show your lack of Decisive-ness. Playing CV doesn't mean you sit at the back.

Lol tier 6 i could buy a tier 6 CV thanks but I just love my bogue and I prefer play step 1 by 1 instead of rushing to tier 10.

As others have stated already, If a DD sneaks up on an unexpexting CV its the fault of the CV player. 

 

Its actually pretty hard to detect a CV so long range fire shouldnt be a problem If you know how to position yourself alongside your team.

A Hiryu can be detected by surface vessels at 11.9km and closer while it can be detected by aircraft at 9.9km and closer, that means that the Hiryu was spotted by something other than the Fuso. Granted it is Hotspot so it easy to find a CV on that map, but a Hiryu or any CV for that matter shouldn't be that close to an opposing surface vessel if possible.

 

Also, if the Hiryu Captain had sixth sense/situation awareness captain skill then he/she should've bugged out way before a 2nd salvo from a Fuso was fired.

it's a game about teamwork, so, well, better team-working...

you should always know that CV needs to stick with the fleet, as strength by numbers...

i would honestly hate having an AI controlled ship following me around like an idiot, it would just crash into things, get me spotted by firing at the wrong time and all sorts of silly things that is yet to be seen, Really all it would do is turn this game into a giant escort mission. 

no thanks :hiding:

why don't just give up on CV if it that bad ?

 

I did that a long time ago, they are not bad ships at all, they are just boring ships in my opinion. wargaming outdid themselves by actually managing to add something to one of their games more boring than a SPG.

It is made sad by the fact that it is a fixable problem. (Most people know i want CV to be able to launch twice as many planes at once while halving their damage potentials.)
