Tactic... Not the best tactic applied, but it is what it is.

Well for one, as a CV player, stragglers are my bread and butter.  Grouped up AA can really be a wall of death to my planes.  A lone ship out away from the group by itself is the target.

It's a lot like a lion taking down a wildebeest.  Trying to get the one in the middle of the pack is going to cost, probably more than I want to pay. 

That one straggler way over there by itself though...is dinner time.

It is sadly not a new thing. The thing people don’t consider with lemming trains, especially at high tiers, is at some point you can’t angle against all sides and your team melts. It can work and can be more successful at lower tiers but more often than not it’s a fail. #DefendYourFlank

If they had did that when I was in the Navy the Soviets would have started doing drugs trying to figure out wth the US Navy was doing

I was on Carrier, stragglers might be good for you but I have a really small German sub thats hard to hit and I hunt you

That is called carriers.

I don't think I'll be doing carriers, although after last night when I was in a battle with two enemy carriers that seemed to not like My Charleston I might, although I think a Navy battle on a map this small  shroud be ships, submarines , freighters, and such, not carriers, but thats probably from 23 years on REAL carriers in a ocean that it takes two wees Minimum to get across

I'm guessing when that happens my best bet is to sink as many ships as I can before I sunk by the three enemy battle cruisers coming at me LOL

I think carriers have really crippled this game in terms of strategy.  In clan battles there are counters and tools that can be used.  A destroyer wants to cap, but there is a radar ship.  They can either get them to use their radar and escape the cap, or teammates can counter the radar ship so the destroyer can then cap.  The game becomes like a chess match.  In randoms with carriers, whether of not your ship will be farmed freely by a hidden carrier is decided before the match begins.  The destroyer population is way down because of how oppressive carriers are for destroyers.  So ships not having a real counter to planes, and less destroyers gives us what we have now.  Ships grouped up with no one capping.

The people telling you to group up for AA defense aren't unicums.
