Just watched this video, really good video. The previous one about CV is also pretty good. I only have a T4 CV so can't try this out.

Hope WG gonna watch this and address this issue.

BTW, a question, what's gonna happen if you division in 3 Haku and use this strategy(if division in 3 Haku is possible)? Kind of want to see what's gonna happen....

When players learn to watch out for Hakuryu torpedoes this tactic won't be all that useful. In fact today I've had games where I couldn't do much damage because players used a cheat called WASD. You may still annoy battleships by forcing them to turn, but with AA screening, fighter support, or hydrocoustic search that won't really work out too well either. It will take a while, but players will learn to adapt.

Iirc you can only have 1 CV in a division - a hard limit.

I just faced iChase and another guy in paired Hakuryus (not in a division), while in my Musashi. I started out in a group of three other ships. All of them bugged out on me as soon as the planes started coming in. Suffice to say, mine was the first ship to die in the battle. :Smile_unsure:

You should have seen the team chat. The other BB and the cruiser with me were going on like they had CV PTSD. The plan had been to stick together for mutual AA, but as soon as the planes appeared, it was abject panic. Thanks for putting in the work with the CVs lately, it’s important that we see what these things can do in the hands of really good players.

I subscribe to iChaseGaming on you tube and boy am I glad I do.  He never disappoints.  I have all of his Captain's Academy videos.  Great info in all of them.

His last two videos were pretty amazing.  Back to back carrier videos both showing unbeatable tactics.  I knew he was one of the very best CV drivers, but holy crap!  I never could have figured this stuff out, but it looks like anyone can do it with a little practice.

This makes me want to free xp my way to tier 10 so I can vomit rocket planes and flood the seas with eleventybazillion torpedoes too!

Hey, WG!  Are you watching this?
