I guess this was coming a while now, pretty much shows the situation with Hosho and how easy it is to sealclub and farm damage with. For anyone TL;DW, basically Hosho gameplay spamming the torpedo squad that uses 2 torps/attack while most opponents have negligible AA. Reaches almost 150k damage and talks about the situation.
I'm restarting my IJN CV grind, but i found that with the one torp attack per wave and the unreliable damage of AP bombs on lower tiers, it's been hard to do decent damage. so could i get some advice on how to do more reliable damage and maybe a tip on which skills to take. currently i went for the 2 speed skills and the reduce aa damage for planes, because hosho's planes are too slow.
Basicly in early tiers, when everyone has the same amount of squadron or almost the same amount, USN CVs has absolute advantage over IJN CVs because the difference between the strength of their fighter planes. I have searched around in the forum and seems like in later tiers IJN CVs tends to have more squadrons of figthers and it gets balanced out. but before that, especially in tier 4 and 5, with hosho and zuiho, its extremely hard to play as IJN CV because you tends to have your fighters competely rekt'd by USN fighters every fight and have their fighters eat all remains of your other squadrons. You will have to play extremely smarter than them, bait them into friendly aa range, outnumber them in a 2cvs vs 2cvs game, and you will STILL LOSE THE DOGFIGHT most of the time if you are up against USN fighters. and there is nothing about play style or what so ever at these 2 tier. because your enemy has absolute advantage over you. and it gets extremely unfun to play against USN CVs as IJN CVs because you tend to lose the air combat every time, tho there exist chances that the rest of your team may make a difference to the outcome of the game. maybe IJN CVs are balanced or even overpowered at later levels, but at early level they tend to have too much disadvantage and you will have to out-smart your enemies a lot to have your foot on the same ground. IJN and USN early tier CVs balances really requires a rework.
