Nudge me here. Have Ranger and Taiho, so I can give you another shot mid or high-tier. Just be aware ATL and other known AA ships easily get limited chances whereas a less-known like Bayvern/Gnei/Ibuki often has better odds.

Gonna run a battle in MO, then check back here. I'd appreciate it if you simply wait in port for me, so around 10-20min from now I'll check back here. See you in-game!

Edit: I'm taking div mates in order they reply here, easier to track.

You might want to be careful with things like this. I don't know Wargaming's stance on these sort of things but back when I played NF, they'd consider this an "arranged battle" and ban all parties involved.

I think that he is only trying to help people on mission: by div with a CV, you will get into a CV match 100%.

I know, and good on him for trying to help. I just know in the past I've had friends banned for doing similar things in other games.

WG has not said anything about "no divisioning to work on missions" far as I know.

Just div'd up w/ another guy in Ranger. Check back on this after that match ends.

WG isn't as concerned with this. In fact, there is an entire forum section dedicated to this exact thing: https://forum.worldofwarships.com/forum/234-find-your-divisions/

I guess many people in OPG/CONQR...etc might be banned then, because they arrange their clanmates' AA ships CV matches every time by div with CVs

You can do this mission over any number of battles, it shouldn't be hard, especially if you have a CV to play

The problem is getting Tier VI+ games with CVs in them.

yeah, and if a player sucks as a carrier (I suck at carriers), then CV play is out of the question. So that leaves 2 options for those players:

1. Let luck 100% determine whether or not you complete the mission.
2. Div up with a CV and now luck is reduced (still have to get lucky that the enemy CV-player will send aircraft into your AA Range).

You say that, but I was having extreme unluck about getting a CV in any tier yesterday. It wasn't until I requested for a CV player to div up with me, that I completed the mission.

How many other players are having unluck, and not getting CVs?

In fact, I was so unlucky, that it wasn't until I no longer needed carriers, that a carrier showed up in battle, while neither I or div mate were CV. So... majority of the player base is likely having a hard time getting the aircraft kill requirement.

There is literally an entire section dedicated to finding divisions (see my earlier post), and there is even a way to request a division in the game.

 I could use the help . I have been waiting two days for a friend with a tier 7 CV to be online when I am to try and do that mission . I am now in game . As to the others saying how easy it is to get CV's in matches ; my Atlanta is very bad (cursed even) at getting CV battles . I once got in queue  at there were 7 CV's already in queue and I was " Oh boy I get to make fireworks ! " NOPE ; I got into a battle with no CV's . There are others I have div-d with that can verify this ; Sinboto ; Umikami and Alex44 .

 Thank you for offering this opportunity  .

Um Guys, its not 30 planes in a match, its 30 planes during the 2 day time frame. This was actually easy, the MINOTAUR with AA spec no need for a CV since spotter planes count to the tally.  You might get more without CV then with CV in the match because they will avoid you in the first place. But IF you have a ATL in the mid tiers you can punish lower tier CV players. Other then that it was easy.

Yes, divisioning with a CV so that you always see a CV on the other side is perfectly legal.

 

Where it would get illegal, is if both the red and green CVs and got together and said, you attack this guy so that he can shoot down your planes and I'll attack your guy so he can shoot down my planes. That would get you banned.

I did not have problems shooting down 30 planes. Now trying to hunt CV planes with an AA cruisers is not the way to hunt CV planes. Because any CV player with more than two brain cells to rub together will avoid a ship with a high AA rating.  

Now if you want to really hunt CV planes take a Battleship with a decent AA rating and bait those sky jockeys into giving you planes. I shot down 20 planes with my Missouri in one game. 

But if you want a hard mission to complete its "150 Main Armament hits in a battle and WIN the battle." Trying to satisfy this mission with randoms who have a tendency to yolo throw the game is hard.

If you can't find anyone else, I will play my Saipan with you...but I am really really bad with CVs and it would not be a nice thing to do to our team.

 That would be good of you . I can understand that concern as I am think the same . If you do decide to do that I am still waiting in port .  But this is up to you .

 Thank you again for your offer either way .
