USS Ranger: How bad is she really? (Tips for new Ranger captain)

So thanks to a rare SUPERCONTAINER that was kind enough to give me 50,000 free exp I now own USS Ranger CV-4. I've heard a thing or two that this ship is less than great, but I haven't gotten much of a chance to play her all that much. All I know is she has 1 Fighter, 1 TB, 2 DB. I'm not likely to torture myself in Randoms, so I'll likely stick to Co-op for awhile, at least until I can figure out where she works and doesn't (and how to handle 2 DB squadrons at the same time).

Any tips for a new Ranger captain? Anything I should know, or any tricks you know of that would ease along the adjustment into higher-tier CV play? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

As a CV main, you are going to hate the Ranger grind.  It's a weird ship, and you'll end up facing off against a lot of Saipans.  Just group up for an Alpha strike, and send it at anything that is south of the enemies fighters if your facing a Saipan, it is a slow game.  Versus another Ranger, go nuts, the person who has mastered straffing will decide the winner as your fighters are golden, so use them sparingly.

You should have used the 50k to skip it.

Or the Lexington, but at least Lexy has a few things going for it.
