    Craft beer heads.

    Yeah, I brew too much for that wait... Usually forget about something for a while and end up trying to give mine out. I know have a 3 tap kegerator too, so fear I will over brew more now. Having an Allagash Haunted House tonight, and Marsh Island "We're Just Friends" (best name for a college town beer).

    Just seeing this now. Might post here from time to time. I am an avid beer drinker, home brewer, and am starting in on hops, you can see early pictures of my hop yard in the hobbies section. I am on Untapped as well, Timilton is my name there (plus the whole Tim Hamilton part as well).

    So... submarines may be a thing...

    It will be water level of the current planed CV rework stuff in my opinion. I don't see them making any substantial effect on the game. Limits on classes in a match will have to change as well.

    New CV Video

    I wouldn't call the rocket equipped attack craft as fighters. Sure they will be fighter planes, but they won't be able to attack other planes. If when you upgrade your rocket equipped planes it has a direct affect on you fighters that are intended to attack other aircraft, then I will lump them together. Just a nitpicking thing by me. Due to being able to do repeated runs, I would hope that AP bombs would get an overhaul if they keep them in. Yes only three of the twelve planes will drop bombs, and some might get shot down. But as they are in the game right now, I feel they are way too strong. Even in my hands getting the chance to drop 3-4 bombs in a row on a BB or heavy cruiser would break the game unless AA gets a huge boost (I know they were talking about making short ranged AA a wall of death). Honestly, I think that DDs will come out stronger after this. I personally think that DDs have some of the biggest affects in a match, so making less planes to spot them will make them stronger. Also torp spotting falls into this, which will help them in the long run as well. Torp bombers are my go to DD killer, maybe it is just my crappy CV skills, but they tend to get them much more then anything else. Rockets do appear that they will have good affects to make up for the new torp and bomb spread situation. At the same time, based on the video, rockets appear to be a very vertical spread with little lateral spread. While one rocket will be more likely to knock something out, the chance of many hitting will be slim if the attack is reacted too. I think the big balancing factor will be the line up time for the CV. Sure you can wheel around like they do now, but if AA changes well enough, it might be costly. Again this is all early, but it appears that these changes will improve the CV mechanic in the game to me.

    Right from what I read in one of the links above they will be a "CAP" kind of thing. You basically say where you want them and the patrol that area for a set length of time.

    New CV Video

    Looking at it I think they have made it more approachable by people. At the same time I think they made the ceiling a lot lower. Reading some of the other stuff, it looks like there will still be a lot of thinking required on the CVs part. You can see in the video that even the guy they had running them was learning while he was doing the shots. In a closed box this looks rougher on DDs, but I think that once people put the evasive maneuvering to use that it will be much easier to dodge these attacks than the bots made it look. The all three weapons appeared to have the same is pattern, again I am sure mostly due to "newness", but if they keep a the style of indicator, dodging should become easier than now. Depending on how they work the AA changes, if DDs shift faster than BBs for instance, or if they increase ranges/DPM, then I see this working out well.

    Pin-Up Video

    Just remember, this video is NSFW (thanks facebook auto play....) and for that matter depending on your girlfriend/wife, NSFH... I have watched it a bunch, hate to say "Pin-up" has always been my kind of thing. Was kind of shocked by the numbers they expect, but at the same time, kind of surprised it hasn't been watched more.
