I am so tiered of complaining about CV play! But then I realized I had not tried it, which country do you suggest trying.

Go with IJN.  Once you get that down then you can try USN.  IJN is far more flexible.

IJN for sure...
But if you feel like wanting to get Clear Sky... go to USN CVs but please, don't get the strike ones

Tiers 4 and 5, begin with USN, then when you feel comfortable with them, switch over to IJN and repeat tiers 4&5, once you have done this, make a decision where to spend your time (although honestly, it is quite possible to explore the CV tiers 4-10 of both nations at the same time.) Play what you enjoy the most.

Can't really say that way, air supremacy, stock and strike mods are so different on US CV's. The simplest to play is stock US CV's. However most say IJN  first, you have a ton of squadrons and always have fighters , and you can learn while making mistakes and still win.

 

IMO Buy both IJN and US and play both teir by tier as you go. Dynamics change every tier and mod for US except T4-8 LOL. The IJN are kinda boring because their mods ain't much different, but they can be a PITA because you got so many squadrons to command.

IJN still better.

 

IJN fighter loadouts have similar numbers of fighters in the air as USN, except it's split into more squads for more flexibility in terms of strafing.

 

Plus, they bring more damage to the table even with fighter loadouts.

 

There's a reason IJN CVs are the meta CVs even in ranked, where the CV meta is more fighter focused.

 

I personally do my shootdown/clear skies missions in a fighter focused Shokaku, and I assure you, it completely destroys a fighter Lexington.

IJN is better, even as a non CV player I know that.

IJN is basically where most of the "OP CV" complains come from.  From running up the US line and not really having that much fun at high tiers, I'd say go IJN.

Don’t care which. It will just open your eyes of the pain of playing a CV when everyone screams at you they need spotting, fighters or bombers.

I can  barely keep track of what I and the opposing

CV are doing,  no time to read chat.

I tend to think USN is actually more noob friendly.  

 

Less air groups to manage and more specific focus. 

So very very true.  +1 mate.

Yes, I remember a DD yelling at me that a Sipan had his fighters spotting him and I'm in a Kaga, after throwing my tier 6 fighters at his tier 9s and losing them, he had the loving gall to say I did nothing to help.

 

Or just today an atago was complaining he had no air cover... while my fighters stopped a wave of dive bombers. Also neglecting that I'm in an Independence and the cursiurs attacking him was escorted by a Cleveland.

IJN are the sprinters, get out early and be damage wh0res. Zerg bombers FTW.

USN are the marathoners, struggle to control early and own the skies late game. few but mighty squads.

whats your style?
