You know how they say that an angel gets their wings when a bell rings?  We I think they get a flaming sward when a POS, coward CV dies early in a match.

GJ!

Kudos to the DD spotting.  Got some karma for that one.

Good shooting, nice luck on the dispersion, and good teamwork.  Well played.

O that poor CV. Struck from afar by a method it could neither retaliate against nor stop. Must have really sucked for it.

Why couldn't it move or sink either the Hood or the spotting DD?

I wonder if part of the issue on both sides is that people decide not to try and do anything about their situation....

One thing about the Hood, is when you aren't a pinpioint shooter (I'm not) or misjudge the lead, sometimes the dispersion shell (off the aim point) is the one that hits home.  Look at that last cit.  My aim was off (lead too much).  Three shells landed close to aim point. That forth shell went kinda wacky (a Hood attribute I hear), but the whacky cancelled out my lead error and delivered the cit.

As a CV captain myself, when you're on a sortie, the feedback on the CV being spotted, getting targeted, and on taking damage is not very good.  Nothing like you get when you are on the ship getting plastered.  To be fair, the data is displayed, but the method of display is suboptimal compared to what you get when captaining the ship itself.  You literally have to LEARN a brand new scan sequence when playing CV because the information is different, and located in different locations on the screen.  This takes time and experience.

Due to the above, there is a vulnerability window.  If you can spot a CV, and get powerful ordnance on it very quickly thereafter, you can often operate inside the situational awareness window of the CV captain.  By the time it dawns on the captain that he's been spotted and whacked, it's too late to fire up the boilers and get away.  There is also the angle SA factor.  Those times when you think you're covered by terrain, but you're not.

I've played  CVs a  LOT and feel like I have a good handle on this SA situation.  But even with a good bit of experience, task saturation (on a sortie) can sometimes overcome my SA and I can still get whacked.  Being on both sides of this equation helps play better on the other side of the equation.  As a regular ship captain, I know about this vulnerability window and will take advantage whenever it comes up.  In the video above, it was pure serendipity.  CV spotted...in range...guns loaded...and pointing in the right direction...with a flank angle.   As a CV captain, I know about this vulnerability window and will try to play to avoid getting in that situation in the first place.  All said, it takes being there several times to avoid being there.

I dunno, I figure the indicators that tell you that you're spotted, then under attack, and your HP bar moving, are pretty clear.

I know when I'm driving a CV, I realise that I'm not getting the same feedback, so I keep a weather eye on the feedback I do get.

BULLSH!T!

It would help your cause if we knew who you were calling out and why. Otherwise you are just raging in the darkness, at God knows who (or what).

You can absolutely do something about it. Drive to the border to start the match till things pan out. With all the spotting and long range bbs you aRe asking to get blowed up

When I drive BB, CA/CL and DD, I agree completely.

When driving a CV, not so much. 

They can hurt you badly at range if you misplay, but catch them flat-footed and they are about as survivable as a king on the chessboard faced with three queens and having pawn moves available to disallow stalemate.

That's the icing on the CV cake.  They make the game incredibly painful to play and then when you do get to finally kill them, they are typically one of the dumbest kills you'll ever get.  It's almost like you're killing an AFK.

So unsatisfying on every single level.

That brought a tear to my eye, even more so than usual when I watch a CV being dispatched.

Great job! You have contributed positively to the game and community sharing this.

What the hell are you doing stationary in a CV?

The only time you should be stationary is when you are behind hard cover and know where all the enemy ships are (roughly)...

You need to pick up your situational awareness game and also up your APM and this wont be a problem.
