My apologies to all the people on the opposing team. They had almost no chance of winning.

and you wonder why I am asking that CVs have their ceiling reduced and floor raised.      until they become not much more powerful than regular ship,  I dislike them as a class overall.

Is it wrong to guess that the ranger was actually strike and the one plane kill it got was from tail gunners?

If where going to brag.

 

Free XP, all the Free XP.

1 second longer and we'd have lost on points, also ludicrous amounts of torp dodging. Basically we won because i was too much of a stubborn ornery old bastard to just roll over and die like a good BB being repeatedly cross dropped by a gearing and a shima.

More proof the Saipan needs the nerf bat.

The Saipan;s issue is she was never balanced with strafe in mind. No more, no less. Without strafe her fighters can hurt opponents, even buy her time to make strikes, but she can't dominate the air war.

Duh? You aren't exactly uncovering some shrouded psychological insight. People like to share their achievements from time to time -- and yes, this includes hobbies.

 

Still, having two carrier matches over the span of a weekend where active enemy CVs killed a combined total of one airplane is unusual, wouldn't you agree?

It doesn't need a "nerf bat", but I'll be the first one to tell you that some re-adjustment could be done.

 

Personally, I'd increase the strafe-out ammunition consumption for all fighters in the game by x2 or x2.5 (only for strafe out, regular strafe would remain same). That would make Saipan's strafe-out less potent, without directly nerfing the premium ship (which WG prefers not to do).

US CVs going strike, when will they ever learn?  I'm not saying a strike US cv can't have a good game, but if you have an enemy cv who even has the slightest bit of map awareness then you're going to be shut down pretty easily.

Not when one player is using a CV that is far superior in AS (even when not AS setup) than the one its facing. Ranger is the worst tier 7, Saipan is best at killing planes. Im glad I had largely finished the Ranger grind before the Saipan abomination was released, I likely would have bailed on the US CV line there.

 

I rarely play my Kaga because of the Saipan, its such a chore to face that ship. I would rather face a competent Ranger AS setup or even a Hiryu AS setup in my Kaga than Saipan.

 Not with the level of most CV captains out there. It's more times than not where 1 CV is of a much higher skill level and ROFLstomps the lower skilled captain, and so goes the game with it, often enough.

 

No different than me knife fighting the life out of lesser skilled DD captains, only difference is that there are usually more than 1 DD a side so it might go less noticed.

 

Last weekend I got a clear skies in Texas because of a CV with a learning disability, doesn't make me awesome, only highlights his shortcomings.

Strike is not bad for T7-T9 USN CVs, but you really have to know what you're doing in order to make it work.

No, not at all. In fact I see games like the two you posted 5x more than games with equally skilled cv's. I am sure that you are a very good cv player. Playing an OP ship against inferior ships simply magnify your results. But even I can pop those types of numbers in tier4-5 games against some cv drivers and I suck.

the thing that you have advertised, and thank you for doing so, is what a cancer CV's are to the game. You were right, the opposing team had no chance. Until WG puts in extensive training programs for cv's and actually teaches players how to use them games like yours will continue to sour people on the game and cv play in general.

You can have a tier 4-5 CV game where the enemy carrier doesn't get any airplane kills, while you take out most of his airplanes? Sorry, but that's almost impossible currently, since you don't get strafe at that tier.

 

In case it wasn't clear, I'll repeat: the unusual part for me wasn't dumpstering all over the enemy carrier (this happens all the time); it was not losing any airplanes to a 2/2/2 Hiryu while taking out most of his.
