Save for one historic video (about carriers), every single post is crying over the new carrier mechanic in the game. They think it’s broken and there is nothing they can do to counter a half-decent enemy CV player. Especially if they play destroyers.
In the meantime I’m winning games left and right and having so much fun that I delayed playing ranked. What I’m playing? A destroyer, of course. Here is a totally accurate video of my gameplay from the point of view of a nearby Grosser Kurfurst. Boyscout promise this is how it happened.
Jokes aside, I don’t remember having so much fun in World of Warships than with my Grozovoi now. Even in defeat:
The morons and slackers are unable to respond to anything productively. They just whine, cry and beg. Sure, the carrier situation isn’t optimal. But it’s nothing like day 1 Worcesters and Harugumos. There is effective counterplay and it’s not “don’t play” like it was against radar cruisers.
The most important way of coping would be playing in the ranked season, where no CVs can participate. That’s what I’m supposed to be doing instead of slaughtering “undefeatable” Hakuryus. But it’s so much fun (click):
Granted, reddit isn’t representative to the playerbase and – exactly by banning me for statistics – WoWs reddit proved to be a hive of idiots. But still, it annoys me that people are so horribly unable to solve any problem thrown at them, even in a video game, even when the solution is spelled out to them and all they had to do is adapting.
Please note that the above do not mean I’m happy with the state of carriers or that I don’t find some feedback proper. I just don’t think that the sky is falling and that this is reason for quitting the game or not playing or whatnot, due to having both counterplay and an intended CV-free playground for competitive people.
PS: I play a little ranked every day:
