I nailed every torp drop, but I cant help think that maybe if I had flags up, or got another strafe in, or if I ran AP rather than HE, or simply micro'd better.

10 seconds more would have done it on points.

Oh well, next game, thanks for listening.

Very good game, congratulations. Unfortunately team let you down. The least they could've done to show their appreciation was to get together and win, but they failed hard.

Awesome game at this point I can only dream of doing that lol. But even with a defeat like that I would only feel bad about the result not my performace. Athough a good player like yourself always looks to see how he can possibly do better.

That's rough man. Been a while since I had one like that in a CV. Most of my rough games are like one I had yesterday, where we were down 3 ships before I even launched my second sortie.

Close games are the most stressful!

I understand you 100%. Nice stats! I even checked my defeat results, don't remember if it is my max damage still. But the battle was great:

Says you lost on points, so naturally Midway can do well and get a lot of kills even if your DDs all die and never get a cap

Did you spot caps and provide air cover for your DDs - that might have made more of a difference?

This wasnt one of those games.

Two DDs per side. I spotted both of them and nearly killed their shima with bombs. On of ours got moskva radar early on and taken out. Other one was flanking and harassing but not capping.

Biggest issue was that for most of the first half of the game I was further forward than our BB horde, so that when I swung the game by nuking their GK, conq, motana and eventually iowa the enemy already had 3/4 caps and I was closest to capping one of theirs. Too passive a play, not enough time. Enemy Midway was last standing and in far corner... not enough strike power to one-shot him in the last minute through DFAA.

I hate to say this, but it seems like CV air cover and radar have the 2 greatest impacts … at least at the start of the game and for controlling caps.

It wasn't you, but radar sounds like a pretty good explanation for such a crazy result?

I know the radar reactionaries will immediately troll this response, so I'll point the finger at you for mentioning it first :)

Look on the bright side.  You got some steak with those potatoes.

The only thing I could think of was to follow closer to a screening cruiser so that a lot of attention would come your way. That would have reduced the strain of winning on your team, but it's very hard to kite a carrier.
