1. I pretty much free exp'd to midway having only played about 10 battles in the ranger. And I was Bad in it!

2. My damage and Winrate in hakuryu isn't exactly above average

3. My midway captain is only 14 points. And still paying re-assignment penalty being a ranger captain

4. I have stock planes

5. I don't even have all the upgrades: no fire mod nor concealment upgrades

 

Meet me in the sky for an re-enancement of the great mariana turkey shoot!

Well, I hate to use stats as a basis for anything, but hopefully not as bad as some of the 40% Midways...?

Curious... why do you think you're going to get stomped? I'd say it depends on two factors:  1) How good is the CV player you're going up against? & 2) What kind of AA your opponents have on their other ships? Good luck and check back to tell us how it went.

If you lack in manual drop and manual strafe skill, more than likely you will not do well. That's what it mainly boils down to. You should know by ranger to look for opportune strikes, stay away from cruisers (early game), etc etc.

Its the natural thought of anyone taking out a carrier, apart from a minority who'll think "who am I going to stomp?" due to the massive differences between the super-unicum and plebeian CV captains.

I free-exped to Midway from Wyoming, over 14 battles played, I have a 50% winrate and 135k avg damage so far. Generally I can say that you can easily play Midway if you knowledgeable of Enterprises loadout and planes, and T10 AA, which you'll acquire from playing haku.

Shouldn't be too bad, unless you run into a unicum, then rip.

OP, based on the information you have given, if you did poorly with the Ranger, you might also do poorly in Midway. I suppose it would depend on what you were bad at. If you couldn't coorordinate the aircraft, lost track of them, etc, Midway has more squadrons and you'll find it that much more difficult to control.

 

On the other hand, the US line does now suffer in it's aircraft loadout compared to the Japanese. If you routinely found yourself in battles with IJN CVs and did bad, did you also find yourself doing bad against other Rangers?

You may be the one stomping. When wargaming was hosting their player appreciation tour. I played the Midway on the deck of the USS Midway on their guest accounts.  I'm a bad tier 5 carrier player, but i devastated the enemy team.

I knowledgeable enough to know that Enterprise isn't worth playing for me because my experience with upper tier carriers say I will get nothing but uptiered. That and the ridiculous levels of AA and near universal availability of DF on cruisers make it pointless for me to waste time doing so.

Know Enterprise's planes? I know enough to understand they will get nothing but slaughtered in the games I'm likely to see. I also know that if I hold back until AA is reduced, my team will spud-fail completely and will make holding back yet another pointless exercise.

Where are the competent Greens and moronic Reds that allow such things to happen? Apparently not in any of the games I've played upper-mid tier CVs in.

For the good of your team, leave it in port until you get better. If you didn't do well in the Ranger, you're going to do horrible in the Midway. And stock planes without all modifications mounted, plus captain retraining? 

Put the captain on a premium ship and finish the retraining, and grind credits for the mods. And then rebuy Ranger, get good at T7, and then buy the Lexington, get good at T8, and then buy the Essex, and get good at T9.... And then play your Midway. The class is just so different from everything else in the game that you shouldn't free XP through anything but modules unless you know what you're doing.

This^^^^^ please don't play pvp

Use co-op as a training ground for your 6-7tier cvs and get better, learn how to perform at an above average level... And than go to PvP and kick [edited]!

Midway is far easier to play than Ranger, I feel that's not the greatest comparison.

Just because you think Midway is strong, you will quickly learn just much you can suffer. Please come to tier t10 and play often. I look forward to it.

You should at least go and play the lex. The AP is great in t10 crusier but good luck getting into them. I am going to xp past the essix for sure. 

The case for HE bombs is to kill aa so your stuply under powered torp planes can go in.

If you got to Warships.Today & sort the top Midway players by games played, you will find the information you seek.  And if you then look at that player's overall stats, you will see that he/she has only managed a WR above 50% in one ship (not including ships with 1 game played): the Erie. :Smile_amazed:

wake up, there are bots infused into this game to even out CV play...sure they aren't named :Spruance: but they are there. Our midway captain was 19% with 161 games.

In fact, I had that same Midway captain against this guy while he was teamed with two other exceptional players last night..... And Anumati went full low rent when I pointed out how bad our cv was, he want on to blame the team and not the CV, even after he had sunk our dd and our CV had yet to launch planes.
