    @Keyan_TTK It won't change much, TBH. If a CV player is keeping planes to diminish what a stealth / torpedo DD can do, it's going to plant the planes right over the DD or at the very least, plant the planes to be in between the DD and friendly ships. However, regular ships relying on catapult / spotter aircraft will not get as much returns from these changes.

    More balance changes, this time on existing ships:

    ST. Balance changes.

    Japanese destroyer Shimakaze's base concealment improved to 7.11 km (instead of 7.56), while with all the modifiers the number is 5.47 km (instead of 5.9 km). This allows her to spot most of the rivals first at her battle tier.

    German cruiser Admiral Hipper received faster base rudder shift (9.2 s instead of 10.7 s) and faster main battery reload (11.5 s instead of 13). Both are true for Hulls "B" and "C". Even though the cruiser has many unique aspects it didn't always show the desired effectiveness at her tier. Now the ship is a better match for her rivals.

    German cruiser Prinz Eugen received the Repair Party consumable, similar in stats to that of Atago. The change increases average lifetime of the cruiser and makes her gameplay more unique, compared to that of Admiral Hipper.

    American aircraft carrier Midway had her hangar limited to 96 planes instead of 136. The ship performed about equally to Hakuryu in shorter battles, but in longer ones the Japanese rival often had issues because of Midway's larger hangar.

    British battleship Orion had her sigma value decreased to 1.6 from 1.8. This is due to ships heightened efficiency at her tier, especially in the hands of seasoned players.
    Shimakaze concealment buff is probably welcome, as are the buffs for Admiral Hipper and Pudding. I can continue the grind to Roon and Prinz Eugen will stop being a port queen.

    Midway is hit again by the nerfbat. I'd understand losing 40 reserves planes with the T10 ones, but with the T8 Corsairs and Avengers, really?

    Orion is kinda trollish imo. Whe I'm playing her, I get two hits, one fire every other salvo. When one targets me, he hits with three shells, starts two fires and wipes half of the modules.

    Heal on pudding won't really change anything, the same kind of stats buffs like Hipper would have been far more better.

    WG really has a thing against US Carriers. The history of this game live and their treatment of USN CVs is undeniably bad. They even went through the trouble on taking several USN CVs that were already struggling before the USN CV Revamp to be even worse than they were before. They accidentally buff Midway then they start taking her down.

    Better than Midway staying poor or OP all the way if you ask me. It just depends on how you look at it.

    And its definitely undeniable, Midway is still a terror. This even with her down-tiered planes. Which is fine, except unlike her IJN rival she's a terrror all 20mins of a match, I've never seen a Midway exhaust her any of her plane types, ever. Hakuryuu will startt to sack at least one plane type by 10 mins in.

    Shima's concealment boost can be considered very useful and useless. Very useful as she'll finally be able to not run into Gearing at about the same time and being able to run into her lower tier counterparts at about the same time. Useless as other than that there's not much else from that.

    I don't welcome Midway's drastic capacity reduction. Sure, both CVs are around the same performance in damage in early to mid game with strike hak. But with AS hak you are pretty much throwing planes away in the Midway. With the reduction to below hak's capacity there will be even lesser options than the currently what Midway can do against AS hak, Yeah, Midway is hard to balance between OP and obviously subpar, but changing the capacity won't help to center that bar.

    3 years.
    That's the amount of time Hakuryu has overwhelmingly dominated Midway in ridiculous ways. One patch not long ago and WG starts tearing Midway down the moment she showed being competitive with her IJN counterpart.

    Let's look at the USN CV Revamp Tally.
    Tier V - Bogue - Improved.
    Tier VI - Independence - No improvement
    Tier VII - Ranger - Has gotten worse than her old version.
    Tier VIII - Lexington - Has gotten worse than her old version, which is an AMAZING FEAT. Her performance in last Tier VIII Ranked was embarrassing.
    Tier IX - Essex - Also has gotten worse than her old version, which is again, AN AMAZING FEAT.
    Tier X - Midway - Competitive with Hakuryu, but this cannot be allowed to continue.
    Nerf.
    Nerf.
    Nerf. Next thing you know they'll notch down the DBs to be Tier VIII planes also.

    WG is quick to strike down Midway, yet it's also obvious that several of these USN CVs have gotten undeniably worse than they were before. They strike Midway down and yet they let Ranger, Lexington, Essex continue to get worse and worse. This is a whole lot of bullshit.

    Here's how fucking Lexington did in last Tier VIII Ranked in NA Server. She was the first of the Revamped USN CVs to undergo the trials of Ranked.



    Her regular Random PVP stats are just as bad. Go ahead and look it up for your server. It's going to be just as bad or worse. Yet this kind of shit is allowed to continue, while Midway gets repeatedly struck down the moment it shows improvement.

    I don't give a shit to be honest. The carriers can all go hang. Either they're ridiculously OP or ridiculously weak, they're never fun.for both sides at the same time.

    You see it as 3 years of dominance by Hakuryuu, I see 3 years of terribad nation-agnostic carrier mechanics hiding behind the thin veneer of "historical importance" and "variety of gameplay".

    And being more OP for a longer period of time justifying something else being allowed to run rampant for a longer period of time is not game balance. Neither is favoring one unit in a line to balance otherwise unrelated units in the same line.

    In other news, some good news from WoWS Japan!



    A) Characterization for each ship
    B) You can train said ships in the Academy
    C) A new Pledge system to strengthen the bonds between the player and his/her Ship!

    Totally no relation to a certain *zure L#ne.

    And, by a striking coincidence, ....



    Would totally marry Cleve-chan

    Looks like it's not an April's Fools after all: WoWS' Asia page announces an Azur Lane collaboration, starting with an event on April 21st at Akibahara.

    WG please, let it be a worldwide event. I want to see the NA Forums go up in flames again and again!
    "No weeb shit in muh serious gaem"
    "No kids fighting in the war game"
    and so on...
