I this isn't real, they've trolled the heck out of Flamu.

BBs will likely have no counter to them meaning even more ineffective long range fire from way in back.
Edit: After watching more of that vid I heard the bit where WG is stating the CV rework is coming... next year. WG makes glaciers look fast with how quickly they address broken game mechanics.

Aren't there still cruisers in the game (and some BBs) supposedly balanced around strong AAA components that are thus weaker when they never see CVs? Ugh... the whole thing is a mess. They really never should have put CVs in the game.

CVs are cancer at the moment. When they show, they're often in division with an AA cruiser. The capability difference between an experienced CV handler and a novice is so wide that experienced CV players see 10%+ win margins over other users.There's no secret to the top win rates by tier - it's usually dominated by good CV players.

Did they make changes to AAA effectiveness? I thought at tiers 8+ that AAA was so good it shredded planes with ease. My understanding was even the best CV players couldn't counter that.
Not too many people play dedicated AA builds. I assume the guys who team with CVs do since they have a guaranteed carrier battle. I've done a fair amount of plane shredding with my non-AA spec'd Cleveland, but generally CV players typically avoid US cruisers until the end game and it can be difficult to provide AA support to a player you don't have voice coms with. I find DD hunting to be a better use of my time. US cruisers are among the best AA ships, but they aren't terrible at dealing damage to surface ships if you play them correctly.

With the increasing prevalence of BB HE spam, due to the OP British BB HE and a lot of stupid, ships AA effectiveness drops rapidly during a game, which makes everything more vulnerable. the competent CV player (maybe 1 in 100?) can sink anything if he sets his mind to do it and is willing to lose squadrons.
However, a CV player who is typical and isn't high tier has a horrible time.
The proposed new CV game mechanic is completely different. Whether it's better or worse is a discussion that's going to run and run.
