Magical mystery Russian Aircraft Carriers that never existed? What next? Swiss Aircraft Carriers? Somali Battleships? Royal Thai Navy UFOs?

Watching this in my daily 5 minute break in the salt mines
You get breaks?!? Daily?!?!!
@civiere must be the Hawaii Salt mines, legend has it they get a daily cocktail too!
aww, come on guys, leave him alone, he’s just delusional
‘Course it is a delusion. How can a 22:06 long video be watched in a 5min break?
Watch and work!
Gday Jingles, whens the next Odyssey upload? Kind of enjoying it. Been here for a few years now. Lovin the WOT and WOW content too! Your a legend mate, from the Australian Salt mines
Sorry mate but it’s *you’re* (as in – you are)
Wargaming making up a line of aircraft carriers for a nation that couldn’t even build a decent battleship. Yep, this makes sense.
@Shaw Fujikawa What makes you think that? BBs seem to have been more expensive but there’s also lots to figure out to build a (successful) CV.
The Japanese realised some easy to make mistakes the hard way.
@Shaw Fujikawa but harder to operate.
And we don’t have any french CVs in the game when they were the first ones to make the concept.
Hope they model the Kuznetsov-class with a permanent fire or docked for repairs… but they won’t. 🙁
One of the other slots on the team should get used up with the tug to follow the Kuznetsov around as it belches black smoke and the rust falls off
I want to know when WOWS is going to announce armored submarine zeppelins.
Only after the Swiss Navy introduction
@Andrea G Doesn’t the Swiss navy only consist of that one nuclear submarine they managed to sneak into the Lago Maggiore?
@Sgt Hawk you may be speaking in jest but there is a nuclear submarine in Idaho. It’s not impossible
“less aircraft overall” except for the fact of the 3 hybrids introduced or on its way.
The star citizen joke is all something we can laugh at give the development process, but when you sit down and think about people have actually died waiting for that game
I’m more surprised that he is arguing for the french
This sort of featurecreep and adding a a ton of different moving parts in the form of ships that at some point just cannot be properly balanced against each other reminds me very much of what happened to Fractured Space. That game also ended up with ships that were incredibly imbalanced to a point where some became must-haves and others (which were good in the past) were basically relegated to the junkyard, not to mention there were quite a few situations were one ship became a hardcounter to another one. The design approach of eternal “let’s add things now and balance them out later” didn’t help either. Well, at least they were trying to nerf the utmost outrageously overpowered things, wargaming can’t even be bothered to do that.
I kinda liked the game in many ways but it wasn’t my cup of tea. Are people still playing?
Fractured Space? It shut down quite some time ago
@Necrolis356 Ah, too bad. Last I heard they just stopped development.
@Kal Taron That, too. I tried logging in back in March, which I was able to do, but when I queued for a game, there were no servers what so ever. Pretty sure people just can’t play it
Star Citizen is not the only one listing themselves as being in Alpha still – 7 Days to Die came out in Alpha in 2013 and Alpha version 19.5 just came out last month – 8 years is not an Alpha
Hmm, which lines do have long range AA? O wait, the Russian ships…
WG should make more game modes, not pack everything info randoms. More scenario battles, especially at tier 8.
the carrier rework ended warships for me, i was a light cruiser player, i had my wooster and i was happy till my ability to shoot down aircraft was more or less removed, now i know many will argue the point but even a fresh wooster that hasn’t had any AA blown off will not shoot down everything the carrier throws at him, i doubt even 2 could and carriers never run out of aircraft while light cruisers can run out of AA weapons that still work
Not the Des Moines or Salem. dude I’ve beaten off attacks from the new FDR CV with my Salem, only talking about 3k to 6k damage. Also add the equipment (can’t remember what it’s called) that protects your aa positions
As another person who quit from the rework… and specifically, as a CV player: I didn’t mind the existance of AA cruisers. A single CV wasn’t supposed to win the entire game by itself, despite what the T10s and T7-premiums seemed to do in practice. Your service was appreciated in keeping the game fair for people playing (for AND against) ships not named Midway or Saipan.
I can see it now. The Russian carriers will come with MIG Jets fitted with anti-ship missiles that have a range 200 nautical miles. WG will claim they are under powered and will fit the jets with a Romulan cloaking device
Oh jingles…. This recent concept of banning certain ships from tournaments and clan battles.
This is WG, basically saying yeah the ships are OP, while looking you in the eye and the telling you the game is balanced.
Great Battles, this is WG getting the player base to test and get comfortable with what are effectively Tier 11 ships.
Your BS defence of USSR CVs, they get to action an Alpha strike, at greater distance, so AA will have less effect. Remember, CVs last until the end of the game (Almost always the last ship to die, cowering in some corner), these Alpha strike machine will be game changers. Don’t ever defend WG dude.
IMHO WG, gives lessons to EA and Bethesda on how to F’ over and lie to their player base. I’m just waiting for them to introduce premium ammo to WoWS and I will be done with the game.
Introduce the surcouf: french hybrid cruiser/aircraft carrier/submarine.
Its getting more like WoT with each major update.
