Carriers are a joke

Impact is insane. Our carrier lost all his planes within minutes to the enemy's carrier; we were obliterated just from the scouting; forget about the damage ... this is a joke.

 

Edit: This is not about the torps or bombs the carrier drops; this is about the scouting that it can do. You can't maneuver from that.

Grammar and punctuation are your best friends, you shouldn't turn your back on them.
Once you've properly formatted your complaint, then we can begin to address it.

Learn how to maneuver/evade, stay with the fleet, and spec for AA is you dont want to suffer against CVs. There are very few good CV players out there, and those that are good arent all that hard to counter.

Ulthwey has the right idea here, WASD hacks are generally the solution when dealing with carriers. Most of the time it's a case of being aware of your surroundings, I'm guessing you're in a battleship since a cruiser or destroyer would normally be able to dance away, being big and slow gives you time to watch the battle and plan your movements.
And you can't blame one player for your lost match, there are 30 players in a battle, unless the match is a straight 1v1 not 30v30 then you can't pin the loss on any one person, it's a team effort whether you do 1 damage by accident or sink 7-8 ships single-handed. The team in some way contributed, and blame can never be placed on a single ship

lol From the sound of your original post, it seems like the Red's CV deplaned your CV, provided effective spotting and dealt damage. Yeah, that is no joke which is contradictory to the title of your thread but whatever you say.

CV balance is a joke though.

But certain people and decisions will have a greater effect than others.

super battle simulator, where world of warships is expanded into one, super compressed, gigantic, laggy battle, and no one wins for ages.

Langley, Hosho.  

That's about the only ones I can think of unless the CV goes full potato.

A really bad one in low tiers.  I'm by no means an expert, but I got a Clear Sky in my Bogue in the first 5min of a match recently.

To bring up grammar in a forum that is for a GAME you show that you have issues in your own life and this is how you deal with said issues. Also you assume the person typing is native to the English language (assuming anything in this day in age on any forum) shows how small minded you really are and shows that you REALLY have issues you need to deal with.  I have a friend from China that has been here 10 years and STILL is not anywhere near perfect with English but people like you who ride in on your big pale horse think you are doing something good, but you are just showing your small minded issues still remain unsolved.

Low tier CVs can be, in very quick order too, even by the crappy AA at those tiers, one or two in every strike doesn't seem like a whole lot, but the hangars that those low tier CVs have are ridiculously low.

As to CVs being OP, well yes, yes they are, because no one tries to mitigate their effect ever. CVs would be much, much less OP, if the teams organised themselves into AA groups, in which everyone was well covered, and stayed close to each other, it is only in situations where teams do not overlap each other with their AA fire that CVs can use their strike power. But nobody does this, they don't even try, I have played hundreds of games in a CV, and maybe ten times have I seen a team try to coordinate themselves into effective defence bubbles. Of course CVs are going to be OP if teams don't try to counter them, of course they will be. To say that CVs are OP because they kill things fast is like saying IJN DDs are OP when the entire enemy team does not change course at all, or very rarely. It is very unfair to blame CVs for being the problem when every single player in the game makes themselves a very weak target.

To be blunt, CVs are not the issue, the issue is a meta in which CVs are not actively being countered by players.

I could see maybe hosho, but deplaning a Langley without strafe, did the fighter fight occur over a friendly Texas or something?

Also, Angel, grammar is what shapes the English language, and what can turn what would be a hateful insult into a harmless joke. Grammar is essential to expressing the mood of a sentence, as well as showing that you have put time and effort into formulating your thoughts. It is much harder to take someone seriously when they show up writing in essentially the same style as a drunk man in a bar, it shows a lack of thought, and is hard to understand. I realise it might be hard to format your posts correctly, but if you put some effort into them people would take you seriously, and probably stop telling you your grammar is atrocious.

Not sure of the entire issue that OP has, but I must admit, T8 CVs can have a hard time against T10 cruisers in a game. I am not looking for balance, but I believe we cannot correct any CV play issues until we addressed MM issues when Cvs are in the game.

MM should be +1/-1 with any Tier CV in play

A sleepy mind is not good with maths   xD    I meant 15v15, but I wouldn't mind seeing a 30v30 like that thing they're doing in WoT
