QE...CV escort extraordinaire

Had an Epicenter game the other day in my QE.  I pushed forward to a good slug distance...popped some damage on a few BBs and CAs....and noticed the enemy CV was making a long west side alpha strike on our CV...so I haul around to position myself between the strike package and the CV.  The CV captain was on to them and had fighters in support....so between his fighters, his CV AA, and my AA, we pretty much obliterated them.  I then turn back to the main fight.  As I start to engage again, I notice a red DD on the minimap also making a west side flank move on the CV...but we have a DD intercepting so I continue my move forward.

I then get a call from the  CV for support..."DD stalking".  I look at the minimap and notice their DD had taken out our DD on the west run...so I turned around to put myself inbetween the CV and the DD (now unseen...but pretty obvious where he's going).  The CV captain...very good player, by the way....headed my way...and we sort of passed each other.  It was at this moment a second DD appears from the EAST side..."oh crap...two of them"!  Fortunately, the West side was already damaged a good deal from his run in with our DD, so I was able to get several good hits and take him out.  

But the East DD...he was almost full strength.   This was going to be interesting.  On the plus side...he wasn't getting the CV...because I was in the way...and the CV was hauling forward.  I started the engagement.  By this time a friendly DD showed up and began to ping him...so between myself, the CV, and the DD...he was dispatched quickly.

Fun game.  I've never played a game in a QE before where the predominate action was basically escorting a CV!?  That said, the red continuing the TBD/SBD alpha strike once it was detected was not very smart; lots of wasted time.  And attempting a pincer move with two DDs (running the East/West lines) pretty much put those DDs out of the fight for the predominate part of the game.  And in the end....zero payoff.

Sounds like a great game!  Would love to see the replay.  I have the Warspite so didn't keep the QE, and I am starting to rethink that decision.

I play QE to basically troll CVs.  I have her fully air spec'd, including flag.  I even like T8 CVs to bring it.  If no CVs show, she still holds her own in ship to ship...up tiers very well...and in tier.
