What should I do since I have been landing in more and more tier 8 matches in my independence if I don't div up with a tier 5. It feels like I am completely useless since I can do minimal damage and my planes rain down even from dd's. I have no idea what to do since I can also not go for enemy cv since he has tier 6 cv AA . I end up spotting and maybe getting in a few torp and bomb hits in the match but then I end up bottom of the team with low xp.

Play IJN CVs.

 

The USN carriers are so poorly balanced against the IJN carriers that in literally almost every single scenario, you're either at a straight up disadvantage, or best case scenario - things aren't ideal. Granted, Indy is worse than usual, but honestly if you want your carriers to not be handicapped before you even press battle, swap to Japanese.

Yup, I hear "play IJN" a lot on the boards these days. This will prolly change later down the road when WG fixes are implemented.

 

If it makes any difference, I too have the Indy, but I just unlocked the IJN.

Can you give more details ?
Do you play strike,stock or AS ?

What exactly is stopping you.  Boat AA or fighter planes ?

Stock Indy is actually very playable. 

 

Only an AS Indy (or anyone stupid enough to play AS Ryujo) can really stop you. Just remember that you have enough planes for 2 full waves. Even if you lose all your planes, sticking 2 attacks will already put you ahead of the AS Indy. 

 

In T8 MM, take it slow. Generally, hold on to your main damage dealer, torp planes. Do not throw your planes into AA you know you can't survive. Use your fighters and bombers for scouting and harassing ships especially if you know they recently repaired. Once the battle flows, ships will break apart and AA modules will be damaged and you can increase your effectiveness.

Balanced is the way to go. Spot spot spot and keep your team informed. Kill did and red planes spotting your dds. Be patient and work on positioning until late then secure kills on ships that have been damaged by he.

 

AS is completely redundant at t6 and strike is basically a bogue at a higher tier.i didn't spot enough going up the is line and it shows in my wr vs my IJN wr
