Is Midway actually worse than Lexington?

I know I found Hak not really an upgrade to Shokaku, but I think a lot of that is due to not having a difference in the amount of ordnance per strike. (even the upgraded planes seem more of a "when I get there" instead of a "must have")

I mean, at least a Midway strike has more torps than Lexington

I think it has more to do with the fact that you will always face T10 AA in a Midway. The planes don't seem to get appreciably faster or tankier (at least not without captain skills).

That being said, the alpha strike on the HE bombers and torpedoes if you can land them are quite strong. The rockets though, in my opinion, are a lot less accurate than Lexington HVARs even if the Tiny Tim's do more damage on paper.

Back around the start of the CV rework, the Midway was in a pretty good place. However, WG started nerfing CVs globally to bring the Hakuryū down from its broken-status pinnacle. Continued global nerfs and the introduction of new CVs has placed the Midway dead last where tier X CVs are concerned. Unfortunately, it's my only tier X CV and I have a permacamo for it so its the one I must play. Soon, I expect another global CV nerf to make the Midway an even a poorer contender as the FDR seems to be doing a bit too well.

Franklin D. Roosevelt U.S.A. 15 513 52.53 % 0.94 104 566 1 816 3.96 4.16 Manfred von Richthofen Germany 87 471 51.18 % 1.00 93 665 1 819 4.87 5.20 Audacious U.K. 203 168 49.64 % 0.92 80 546 1 835 4.55 4.52 Hakuryū Japan 478 211 49.35 % 0.90 80 356 1 780 5.08 4.64 Midway U.S.A. 844 934 46.78 % 0.80 71 114 1 733 5.35 3.66

It's Ironic that many in the game will check the MMM and then call you out for being a noob CV player when your stats are pretty much the server average for the ship. And people here wonder why I hide my stats.

And why don't they give each player a tier 8 German light cruiser?

I mean look, if we call it the Mainz (pronounced like mines), then make it so. Otherwise just call it the Yourz.

Have you tried pressing "battle"?  That might solve your issue.

Midway used to have jets and the US CV line was the first line I decided to grind because of it.

 

They removed the jets before I got to Midway

T4 easy mode probably isn't the best example to use. Just sayin'.

Well, it was a screen shot I had handy, from a battle this morning in which I earned a Naval Battle star for my Clan.

Langley is the slowest CV in the game, being a former collier.  But, her planes are decent for her tier.

I have the Ranger and the Lexington, as well.  And they're playable, too.

DBs are a clear upgrade. You get more planes and more bombs per strike.

Torpedos only get you a ton of them with relatively short maintenance time.

Rockets are a clear downgrade, because Shokaku's rockets are laser accurate and it is not hard to get tons of hits, while Hak's rockets can't hit the broadside of a barn from the inside.

I dont think you all seem to have realised but the OP appears to be trolling.

Midway. Mid-way. The Mid Way point of the line. Thats what they are implying.

Most Midway players are more akin to doing like your opponent in this game. Congrats on doing that well in the Midway -- it's not all that easy for most of us to do. You have a much higher win rate in it than the server average win rate.
