Dunno, but experience for destroying planes seems to be too low.. I wonder if CV's suffer from the experience penalty TD's and SPG's used to have in WoT...

You can shoot down 62 planes and only earn 670 EXP.

 

It's the reason why the game is oversaturated with carriers using torpedo bombers - it's that much more rewarding...and in turn, makes fighter carriers have a field day of playing with them...

Almost te same happens with CL capping 2 basses and giving AA cover shoting 12 planes and preventing 'capping' by enemy 4 times and after game won getting only a bit over 200 exp.

Is there any list of exp breakdown for doing certain things in battle?

Cheers.

Still in the early stages of trials and errors. Slowly things will be mended and ironed out.  I hope ???

I think this is another reason it's hard to cultivate teamwork. Why escort the BBs with your CL when you get crap for experience. The other thing I've wondered about is when a player dukes it out with another BB and reduces the oh by 90% only to have a torp bomber finish it off giving most of the experience to the CV. Or a torp squadron gets 5 hits on a BB only to have a CA finish off the last few hp and get kill. I'm sure that it is still a work in progress and have faith they will get it ironed out.

by the time this game hits release, people are going to learn really quick that they HAVE TO rely on each other and work together. Yes, the lack of XP is frustrating, especially because a fighter carrier can ensure that enemy bombers never get back to their carriers, or to their targets in the first place. and i'll tell you now, any team made up of people with half a brain appreciates a good escort carrier. unfortunately, the name of the game is destroying ships, so that's where the most XP is to be had, battleship AA gets the same XP for shooting down a plane as a carrier's fighter squadron, and the fighters can take down enemy planes easier, so i guess i understand the lack of XP.

However... I am ALL for a bonus if carrier borne fighters manage to take down enemy bombers before they drop their payload, i think that would be very fair. it encourages teamwork, proper targeting priority, and might just make people shut up about how OP torpedo bombers are, if fighters are actually shooting them down before they strike.

 

just my humble thoughts
