Carriers are awful

The carrier interface is probably the worst thing I've ever seen. You can't see the entire screen. The POV constantly jumps around. There's no way to actually instruct your planes to do anything. How the hell do you instruct your planes to drop torpedos? The planes can be told to move similar to how normal ship autopilot works, but once they get there, they don't respond. It's infuriating. How are the other ship's controls so intuitive, but carriers are so bad?

Right click

alt + right click for a manual drop (low tier carriers can't do this)

Well it's all going away soon...

I did right click. A little "auto" symbol appeared over the target ship, but nothing happened. My planes keep circling "waiting for orders". No wonder why no one plays carriers.

Sounds like it might be a bug. Consider sending the replay to support.

I would not even try to get to know how to play CV's until the CV rework is initiated. It will be vastly different.

Isn't it left-click now?  They changed a bunch of controls for CVs a while ago.

That's basically how I am.  My carriers are parked till the rework is released.

My carriers are parked, and will be turned in for refunds or just sold when the rework is released.

 

OP -- sounds like something is wrong, the current interface is pretty much point and click, move the mouse to move your view, etc.

open up settings, explore options. Once you understand them, set up a "training room" and practice vs AI bots until you feel comfortable.

Did you turn on the alternate carrier controls from "Controls" section by mistake? There's a checkbox there.
