I haven't played wows since the CV remake went online. I was mostly a DD main, I don't enjoy the frenetic play style of the new CV's, and don't like how the aircraft have changed the game's meta.
Giving CV's RPF was another stupid decision. I'm going to have to give it a few months and see what shakes out. Been playing tanks instead.
I do have some DD's which are supposedly good in the new AA meta, like the Kidd, but I just don't have any desire to play I guess. And the craziest part is that just about the time they finally balance the current incarnation, submarines will drop. Too many fundamental changes in too short a period of time, at least to a certain extent.
I wouldn't even think about subs being brought into the game for real until next year at the earliest.
With the spotting changes in 8.0.3 even a Khab doesn't get spotted from air until 3.6km and you can absolutely shit on planes because of this as they won't be able to get away from defensive fire set ups from the likes of the Kidd, Gearing, Groz, etc. I've lost entire squadrons before the opposing destroyer was rendered.
