The simple and elegant solution would be to make every port uncapturable, thus making the CV uncapturable.  As it is now, every country starts a map with the same number of ports and CV groups; let them keep 'em and maybe they'd be used as intended - to help capture/defend other bases.

True Dot, but that would change the dynamic of having CV be captureable, and may not change folks hiding them. I don't think the problem is that they can be captured, because no seems to be complaining about that, just that they're being hidden.

But I'm just a spectator in this argument because I couldn't care less about CVs or Spies.

Agreed Vinkman, but I'm of the opinion that the CV groups get hidden because the armchair admirals are afraid they'll get captured - thus hurting their effort to "win teh warzez".  If they can't be captured, there's no risk in having them sunk other than the time it would take to sail back to the front lines.

Spy's were a real world Asset, OMG he switched sides, Spied and found the cv and had them sunk, Get over it this is just a game =]. I think HiTech needs a Tantrum forum for all of those who cant seem to keep it to them self's when something they don't like happens so I dont check the bbs only to find 20 new posts about this person did that or that person did this.

YOU choose to pay the $15 a month as much as the other guy, You know the consequences of playing this game should it be spying or ho'in It happens and oh yea did i mention the biggest shocker of all!

ITS A GAME.

Spies were shot on sight in WWII. There's nothing you can do to stop spying in AH.

I agree that's probably why most do it, but it might be a case of throwing out the baby with the bath water. I was trying to fix the 'hiding' side effect, without affecting anything else.

I think it's odd that someone can hide it, without having to stay on it and sacrifice their time. I think this was done so folks could steer the CV but take off and fly from it. The side effect is that you don't have to waste your time to sail it across the map.

So would you 'hiders' do it if you had to stay on it the whole time to keep it hidden?

Seems like pretty lame behavior on both sides.  Both perspectives are just gaming the game.

If you switched sides just to announced a CV's position, you should be .reported (taking away chat privs for a week) and shunned by the community.

It is really is a low life thing to do.


If a country wishes to hide a CV, it's their choice.

I stand corrected. Hiding it is not a side effect, it's strategy.

like the two knit CV's in LWO there were at least 15 sectors from any unfriendly bases, totally out of game play even for us knits to use,who ever put them there to "hide" them was an idiot , the quickest way to bring them back into play would of been to destroy them, but there probally still sailing around cape horn as i speak

I love sweeping (and mostly wrong) generalizations.  :rolleyes:

How is this generalized OR wrong?  Based on the OP, he switched sides to kill 2 of the CV's that they were hiding to keep them from respawning at the port that was taken.  This is a common tactic.  "Fine, they can have the port, but they sure as hell won't get a CV from it!"  There is a reason people are yelling "KILL THE CV!!!" right after you take a port.

Particularly if this happened to the Bish last night in Orange; we were getting absolutely smashed on, removing enemy CV's from the picture could do nothing but relieve some of the pressure on our bases (there was red EVERYWHERE!!! :uhoh).

If you are speaking in the sense that they might have been hiding them just to hide them, then I might agree with you.  But that was not my impression or the direction I was posting in at the time.
