ever since the beginning of 0.6.14 I was overjoyed that AS Bogue was removed. but after fighting the reworked bogue... now the zuiho needs a rework as now it cant compete with it. the bogue can kick the zuihos [edited]with the fighters while doing massive damage to the zuiho's team. while the zuiho cant do crap. so I think it needs a rework. and if you don't agree with me try zuiho with a 10 skilled captain or less or even try the new bogue. hell I even do better in the bogue and do 70k damage and higher. but I want to go through the IJN carrier line

While true, Zuiho has always had trouble dealing witH AS Bogue...

 

Be prepared for most responses to orbit around "Well it was OP for so long" and "Zuiho deserves it" and similar pointlessly spiteful reactions to the current balance situation.

OP CV captain complaining because his CV isn’t the dominant choice anymore. Classic.

All CV are broken and balancing them will never work. Ride the waves.

I'm having a hard time with Hosho vs Langley too... fighters aren't even close and meeting tier IV ships (and maybe even III) means you can't try to lure his fighters into any that have decent (or good- good would be nice) AA to help you balance the odds. 

Frustrating. 

Smart Langely sends all of his planes together since he knows that while you know his fighters are there you can send your torp squadrons elsewhere- but you can't spend enough time setting up a decent attack on anything since you need to micromanage where your fighters are going to engage his... or you're going to engage the attack planes and be intercepted by his fighters in a place where it's going to be beneficial with the AA of the ship that he's attacking. Or you're going to focus on your attack, your fighters are going to get jumped by his wherever he wants and his planes are going to advance unperturbed and- over the next 3 attack runs- sink a bunch of your ships. Team is mad at you for the rest of the match and vacuum up any Karma that you had accrued over the last 8 months of shutting your mouth and trying to play nice. 

So... needless to say that as an average CV player who generally knows what he's supposed to be doing without always having the capacity / ability to do it- I understand why it is that- at least at low tiers- why people don't hang around and instead charge up the line in hopes of something getting better. This results in very, very weak carrier players. 

To the OP- things should get better for you as you work your way up since your potential disadvantage in fighters can be mitigated by stronger AA on your ships. You still need to pick the time and place that you're going to engage him- and he needs to agree to it- but at LEAST you have been looking for ways to do that since you started the IJN CV line so it's not something that's strange to you. You're used to it. The guy on the other side in the American CV hasn't always had the AA to contend with and in the event you end up against someone who just started playing carriers for the first time at 8am this morning you'll probably have a reasonably easy time baiting his fighters with yours while sitting over a cleveland or a texas. 

But anyone who started playing at 7am this morning or has any more experience than that is going to make you work really, really hard for it for a few tiers more.

Bogue can't even tank any losses to its airgroup.  You have to be very careful...

yes, but zuiho cant tank that much too. yes bogue has little other planes for replacements but bogue makes up for that by sheer firepower with its fighters and that its tb and db are faster

your saying that to someone whos top ships are t6. I'm not a seal clubber. also CVs can be fixed its just that what wargameing does that fuckes up one or the other lines

do I have to mention that I play zuiho and bogue? and I have to admit that bogue is just better? hell even though I have a ten skill captain from a reward and has air group mod 2 I cant win vs a bogue with just tier 5 fighters. zuiho also has a harder time hitting dds and cruisers as its torps are just too spreaded. hell even some bbs only got hit by ONE torp by a good cross drop

Looking at the 1 week stats on Na.warships. You can't get much more balanced.

As opposed to

Pre Bogue buff and manual drops capable. 

Its better to face a more balanced cv at t5 then go up to t6 and have to learn strafing against better player's in independence

Currently Zuiho still outperforms Bogue in both winrate and damage.  Same as before the USN CV changes.  Only difference is that the performance between the 2 ships is now closer.

how odd, because every time I see a bogue vs a zuiho the zuiho gets its [edited]kicked. same thing when I'm playing one of the cvs

This is certainly how it feels- I think I'll need to go on the hunt for strategies and tactics on how to contend with the US CVs.

Just because now the Bogue can't be face rolled anymore. Sorry I'm just laughing my a** off right now.

You have to admit, CV drivers complaining that their OP off-map guided missile cruisers aren't OP enough is rather amusing.

More seriously, in two week data, Zuiho is 4th in win rate among tech tree boats, and it is tops among tech tree boats in damage, behind only the insanely OP Guilio C and the somewhat less OP OktR in overall damage. It doesnt need a buff. If players don't make stats-based arguments for buffs or nerfs, they will rightfully get laughed at.

However, for a player to whine that he has to work to do pointless cancer damage to other players who  have no way to stop him is unconscionable and deserves either scorn or laughter.

Zuiho never had a chance against AS Bogue

The changes didn't change the power balance.

I found the Zuiho to be a much better CV than the Bogue. Since it's a low tier ship you'll typically face newer players, so you should be able to avoid fighters (unless you are trying to CV snipe, in which case you deserve to lose all of your planes).

It's hard to level up in a Bogue. You don't get much in the way of XP for shooting down planes (but you do get Clear Sky awards), and if you are in an AS load out you only get that one dive bomber, which doesn't do much in the way of damage.

If you are up against a seal clubber, there isn't much you can do no matter what.

The Bogue has not changed other than its damage has increased. For auto drop I ran the 1/1 Bogue as the fighter squadron with strafe and the manual drop torpedo bomber was very strong to contest against.

The 1/1/1 is something the Bogue has needed for a long time, plus it allows US CVs to learn the play style. Limited planes against numerous enemy squadrons.

I would voucher that they are now on a more level par than at any previous time.

Remember this moment folks.  Because ever since this game launched, this has been the closest the competition has ever been for Tier V Zuiho.  Before manual attacks were removed for Tier IV-V CVs, Zuiho ran away with the competition.  It was never, ever, EVER close.  AT ALL.

 

On one hand, I can understand how difficult it is for current Zuiho users because the lack of strafe capability means that any air engagement their fighters get into, even against bombers, is costly.  There are no strafes to whittle down Bogue aircraft with skillful, clever strafing.  It's now "Point & Click" and that is EXACTLY the kind of air-to-air fighting USN fighters excel at, unit for unit.

 

On the other hand, Zuiho is still Dmg leader and still the overall performance leader.  2 sets of TBs is still nothing to scoff at.

 

The difference is it's much closer now compared to before.  I just cannot agree with a buff to Zuiho considering her superior game history and that she is still doing well.

I never had problems against the bogue. Your planes are fast and their planes can't be everywhere so you outmanuver them and laugh as you rack up more damage.

ok I get it. they are both on the same level now. but its just that I'm getting tired of the fact that there's captains who have been playing long enough that they now how to carrier better then me. and they probably have higher skilled captains too. and even though I have air group mod 2 and air supremacy too. I just cant beat the bogues fighters on a 1v1 without any AA support. but even though I try to lure his fighters over a bb so I can have aa support. he's just not that dumb. and  I'm pretty sure his fighters are a bit faster so running away is pointless

do I also have to mention that I seem to be facing seal clubbers or people resuming the US CV branch
