Another very good case that players should try all classes.  I am not saying we make it mandatory of course, but it would at least lessen some of that in game.  I enjoyed the red response lol.

The Midway's fighters are not too terribly bad but I have yet to down a single plane with the fighters of the Furious -- they are worthless.

However, you are the CV player in that match, therefore, all poor performance by the other 11 players is in fact your responsibility entirely...

Oh the fighters work themselves... barely. The consumable as a whole just doesn't work in premise. As in... all they accomplish is an "area of denial".

They take upwards 10 seconds to latch onto anything so they're near useless as a means of impromptu defense. Which is what everybody screams for when they want AA support.

I've literally boosted right through fighters dropped on my squadron and I laugh at enemy CV players who waste them trying to intercept me...

You can protect your teammates from frustrating airstrikes by not playing a CV.  Then you won't be prompting the matchmaker to bring in an enemy CV that you can't really do anything about.

Silly surface ships made the mistake of not playing a superior ship class. They deserve to be farmed for their ignorance.

Fighter consumable rarely protects on the first attack run ... but is pretty much guaranteed to shred much of the remaining squadron, depending on the number of fighters dropped. Enterprise especially has a nasty fighter consumable that drops 10 fighters which can shred even the largest squadrons.

I actually feel better watching the fighters uselessly circle me while I get dropped and they do nothing.

Fighters just increase the cost of a drop in lost planes. Sometimes that's a deterrent, sometimes it's not.

The best actual defenses against a CV are:

  • Don't be seen
  • Don't be stationary
  • Be in a group
  • Angle to the planes (turn in toward TBs, etc.)
  • RNG

Nowhere on that list is "beg friendly CV for fighters that last 45 seconds".

You miss:

Dont ask for a fighter if you are close (6- km) to enemy, thats useless  the fighters will melt before do anything.

Requesting support isn't a bad thing at all, it's what you do if you don't get it that matters and determines the kind of person you are.

This above Quote of mine should have read as follows:

However, you are the CV player in that match, therefore, all poor performance by the other TWENTY-THREE players is in fact your responsibility, BUT can be a SHARED responsibility with all players to have ever played a CV, and is not restricted to this one match instance or any time frame.

Really need to make the fighter consumable separate from the attack squad. I'd hope people can walk and talk at the same time.

Actually it can but it requires the CV player to have their planes very close to where the attack is going and dropping them in time to kill the attacking planes.

WG clearly believes CV players are incapable of doing two things at once or CV players could sensibly be allowed to control their planes and boats at the same time.

Don't you guys know? CV is supposed to be spotter plane and fighter consumable for the rest of the ships, get serious already.
