If this isn't going to get it done today, then I don't know what will. Guess I'll try again tomorrow.

But when a CV takes a, b, and c, then something has gone horribly wrong.

Wow! Good job there. 8 ships and 76 planes. Too bad you had a bad team.

Just curious -- how do you down an allied aircraft?

How's your back? It must suck to a carry a team as hard as you did only to lose.

Ah. Thanks.

I don’t regret buying Saipan and Kaga for a second.  I don’t normally play carriers, but I do take them out few times a week.  Playing those two CVs gave me an invaluable insight into how CVs play in general, and now CV players have my respect and understanding.  You will not hear me say sky cancer or complain about CVs or lack of air cover in game.  Having said that, I do not consider getting T10 CV any time in the foreseeable future.

The ryujo was as, and had all 3 squadrons in a dogfight with the friendly CV. When there was 1 plane left, I strafed them all. 1 friendly for 10 enemy.

*Holy sounding tenor note*

Thanks for understanding how difficult it is (starting my grind up the IJN tree), with 1 fighter squadron, life is hard, especially if our Ranger is dead and it is against OP get out of jail free Saipan (against Ryujo at least).

Good job.

Why the (redacted) does it seem like such carrier drivers are always on the other team?

Sorry I had to laugh as I was listening to NPR on the radio talking about schadenfreude, and I had just got out of a battle where I was King of the Potatoes, again.

Your team makes my team look like unicoms.

WOW I do not even have words for that. Was the rest of your team AFK?

A lot of very bad shots. Only 6k in spotting damage, and it wasn't for a lack of spotting. Fighters were constantly intercepting bombers, and keeping them at bay, which also kept the reds lit up.

All I can say is random battles have been horrible since the French BB line came out. It may just be me, bad RNG or something more but every battle is a curb stomp for one side or the other.

The games that I am on the winning side of end with very little damage as they are over so fast and it is even worse damage wise if I am on the loosing side of the battle.

At least you can hold your head high after that loss you posted. It still makes you go wth? That was a damn fine job though!

AAAAAAAaand you wonder why players hate CVS especially new players getting dumpsterd on by experienced CV drivers using alt attacks while your AA is garbage and doesn't shoot down a plane.  Bust out the doritos and mountain dew cometguy. :Smile_teethhappy:

I wonder if being bad shots is amplified by cowering shooting at max range all the bloddy time...

Haha, Friday was tough sledding, while everyone was running the shoot down 30 planes mission. It seems a lot could be done to bring down CVs by giving players the proper motivation.

Wow impressive and you had more base xp by a large margin than anyone on the winning team in a CV.

I have seen a lot of poor play this weekend, from BBs nose in to (humping) islands in Neighbors trying to act like cruisers, to yoloing, to rushing with poor map position.

I honestly think it has to do with the missions and campaigns encouraging poor play just to get them complete instead of just playing the game and letting them come together.

I don't hate good CVs I hate bad CVs the skill gap is the problem with them. I have seen CVs using the auto attack at tier 10! Nerfing the tier 4 and 5 CV to auto attack only was the worst thing they ever did to that line. Now you get CV drivers that go all the way up the line and never figure out how to do a manual drop. I do not know what the answer to that is but something needs to be done about it.

when you're not only the highest scoring person on your own team, but also score higher than the losing team, that's when you know you got stuck in a match where both team's were composed of nothing but a bunch of monkey's flinging poo at a wall and hoping some of it will stick.

But comet, the other 11 people on your team were just having fun! Do you really expect them to know how to play the game they downloaded? That seems an awful lot to ask! Why do you believe their fun is less important than yours?
