Both teams had only one DD but I had RPF. It took me a five sorties to finish him off though. That's not five attacks; that's five missions from the CV!

Sortie 1 -- Well, hello little one!

Sortie 2 -- He's gotta be around here somewhere.

Sortie 3 -- Back for more! He is not amused.

Sortie 4 -- Now he's in smoke, I see. RPF shows me the way though!

Sortie 5 -- Final hit! He is one tough egg (or I can't hit for crap).

Postscript. He died well though as he kept me busy for five minutes.

This is sort of the point I was making. RPF may make it too easy for planes to hunt ships. Perhaps the Devs need to look into this.

I am sure they will, but hey use it, abuse it while you can, for me I am giving WT boats a go, fun yet stupid at the same time, nice graphics on them

Indeed and ships cant RPF the planes.

I have been in my DD and thought how the hell am i RPFed then the planes pop up.

Maybe the solution could be to change the point of origin, have RPF show the closest ship to the carrier rather than the planes? That would make it much more of a defensive tool rather than something to go hunting with.

Radio direction finders were used in WWII to show the aircraft the way back to the carrier. If another ship was transmitting on the right frequency though I suppose that they would show the direction to it instead.

Making other players not have fun is always a good idea...

WG really dropped the ball on the balance in this update, not sure how they could ever think aircraft with RPF was a good idea.

Been meaning to ask. Is RPF on aircraft considered OP at this point? I haven't seen it raged over yet (perhaps there are too many other issues). I certainly use it especially on US carriers that have strong attack aircraft but I don't want to get too comfortable with it if it looks like getting yanked.

That's because most players do not know that they are being RPFed by the planes, they think its a ship.

I thought the RPF was only a ship skill, and that it couldn't be used on CVs.  That apparently went out the window with this patch.  Planes with RPF is just wrong.  They can scout out an area quickly as it is, without RPF.  Now, with RPF, they can fly directly from their ship to the closest target without even seeing it first.

The oddity of it all, pre 0.8.0 DD Captains complained about radar post 0.8.0 it is CV's.

As for RPF regardless if it should work on planes or not, a good CV player will for the most part figure out where you are.
