Recently I was in one of those lovely 2 CV game, now we lost but in the process I shot down 100 planes(yeah CV don't have unlimited  planes LOL). Anybody else got any big number of planes kill they would like to share?

 

It was in a random, I was in a Mass. One of the CVs was a Graf the other was IJN I believe.

75 in Kidd, versus two tier VI CVs. Needless to say they weren't thrilled.

Got another one with 71 versus Enterprise, but it was basically fighter consumable after fighter consumable.

From your score screen (good job), I think the problem was your team, not the CVs.

He wasn't complaining about the loss or his team. The fact that he had to deal with that many planes is, however, a real problem, especially when the CV defenders gripe about how they don't have unlimited planes. Other ships with lesser AA capabilities than the Massachusetts get straight up murdered by such swarms in these ridiculous 2 CV per side games. 

This really shows how ineffective AA actually is as a deterrent to sky cancer attacks.

100 planes between two CVs, likely including a number of disposable fighters and/or spotters, in no way suggests that CV plane reserves are massively out of whack.  Sorry.

The reply is gone already, my folder only keeps so many game and I played allot then we had clan battles too. It wasn't hardly any fighters, it was  mainly, bombers and rocket planes.  We where why behind and made a bit of a comeback they didn't need fighters. The rocket planes were hardly doing anything to me.  Why would they drop fighters over me they already knew were I was?

 

 

As far a spotters go don't really remember to many but there was some many planes in the at coming at me hard to tell.

 

The both focused me for the last half of the match, I was really saying anything is broken but was hoping to see others big plane shoot down games.

No measure is an effective deterrent to any sort of attack, if the attacker doesn't care about the consequences. Not caring about the consequences could mean a lack of them, or just...... not caring.

Just as surface ships are different from CVs, so is what constitutes YOLO gameplay.

Good AA is a deterrent for me, because if it costs me 6 planes to make a strike on a particular ship, and I get down to half squadrons, unless he gets his AA stripped, he's effectively immune to my attacks at that point, because I don't have a flying "reserve" to soak hits.

That's possibly why so many planes were shot down, the CVs got their squadron size whittled down to the point where they were just feeding small numbers of planes at a time to AA.

Keeping effective squadrons flying isn't really a matter of how many planes you lose, but how soon you lose them. If I lose 50 planes at a steady rate over the entire match, I can still field effective squadrons. If I lose 50 planes in the first 5-7 minutes, I'm pretty much relegated to spotting, or fishing for 3-digit HP ships by themselves.

A lot of CV players are better than me, but I'll bet the 2 the OP faced aren't.

Amount of planes shot down is a completely worthless metric.

No Kraken?  Carry harder! Do you expect your team to kill and support?

Don't need a replay for that...do you really need to watch a whole replay for something a simple screen shot will show?

Just show the other post battle screen that shows which ones you killed (on the "detailed report" screen)...if you have this post battle screen you posted you have the other 1 too.

PS: If you haven't quit out since then.

Legozer,

  Yes, understood his post but was commenting on his good play, which in the end didn't matter due to his team (most likely).

  But on the subject of AA as "ineffective"....wholly untrue.  Also on "unlimited planes" again very  untrue.  What you don't know is how many were "dropped fighters, other ship's planes, or true CV attack aircraft). 

 I play all ships and yes, even CVs.  I agree having 2xCVs in a match is not good (in his game I know one was a T8, but not the other).  I've been in these types of matches (usually a T8&T6 CV) and good use of AA always helps.  I consider myself a competent CV player and I've had my planes stripped down to only a few in the match.  Sometime you get the better of the CV, sometime the CV gets you (which is no different from any other type of ship).

vr,

vr, 

Actually no, I was just amazed at how many I got and want to see if others have done similar things that's all.  There planes always regenerate, so with in the time limit I feel unlimited is a good description.

Wish the team would have won but we didn't. There weren't many fighters I do remember that.

 

The other was as 6 I believe

If that was a Graf Zeppelin and a Kaga, between the two of them, losing 100 planes would be normal, especially with Kaga and her tendency to litter the battlefield with fragile burning aircraft and still be able to make attacks.

They aren’t saying you made it up.  They are questioning how many of the 100 were strike planes, which count against the hangar capacity of the CVS, and how many were fighters and spotters, which don’t count against the CV’s hangar capacity.
