Are Japanese carriers still better?

I'm going to go down a carrier line, and I'm just going to check with the forums before I do. I haven't seriously played carriers for over a year, so I'm wondering what the best overall line is? Is it the japanese? Is american AS as good as it was?

I am not a carrier player but I would say that for now the Japanese are a the better choice because of still having loadout options. Just keep in mind that the carrier revamp will throw out pretty much everything of the current CV system for something that hopefully isn't rubbing your stomach while patting your head all while juggling vials of nitroglycerin we currently have.

IJN is still more flexible, and usually more predictable, which makes them better.

USN CV's are better than they were, which isn't saying much, their previous state left a lot for improvement.

Let me ask a specific question- which nation has better carriers for operations (VI and VII)? That's what I'm primarily going to use them for. I'm very sure the IJN carriers are but it never hurts to ask.

One on one, pretty much yes. Although I find Japanese carrier planes easier for my AA to deal with.

IJN, hands down. Ryujo is the best at tier 6. Tier 7 ops are pretty hateful for CV's, when you can bring them at all, Kaga's usually my number one pick, but Hiryu can do nearly as well.

Ijn are better for the simple fact that they don't get targeted nerfs.

 

Ijn CVS get nerfed when all CVS get nerfed, but they never seem to get ijn specific nerfs like the usn CVS do.

Ijn for sure.  You get better and more consistent/predictable alpha strike potential from tbs, as well as quicker plane turn around.  Both are essential for dealing with the large number of bots thrown at you at once.  The weak fighters are a moot point since the bots always use unupgraded planes and never strafe (meaning you can strafe all day long to control the skies)
