Did you enjoy it?

If yes then good.

If not, well you taught those pesky other ship types a lesson they needed to learn more of :cap_cool:

Ah yes, I love that depiction. Lucifer cast down from Heaven. And enters the depths of Hell. 

And of course, Anakin...gone to the Dark side he has. Just after he killed all those kiddy Jedi. Only Lucas didn't have the gonads to show it all. Just the aftermath. 

Darth Vader is hard core Sith, and that is why I hated Episode 3. At least Rogue One finally showed us the Darth we deserved. 

As for your CV play. Congrats. Learning to team play by spotting, bombing isolated targets, and  strategic use of the infamous mini-map that the (In High Born British Accent) vahhhhhsssstt majoritay of the server ignores with great peril when a CV is lurking like a Dragon. 

I do give high praise when it is much deserved. And as much as you are just starting out, you seem to grasp the fundamentals of multitasking CV tactics and while your red opponents will vilify you on Reddit, YouTube, Twitch, and twitter, Instahammy, and any other social media of vainest contempt; be advised to not take it personal. Instead, take it as the ultimate compliment as they pucker their butts in fear of the buzzing sound of your planes while they poop brown grade diamonds. Enjoy the compliments as they lob bad words, because they are actually good words of love and endearment as you drop your torpedoes and they lose their minds snapping their helms to dodge.

Watch them use Karma to negate you to the low -3000 level, but that is actually +10,000, because that AP bomb drop is not easy unless they was parked like a garbage truck on a Sunday.

Enjoy the DDs throw rotten veggies and flip the bird of salute as you flame them to detonation, because they did in fact forget to add their Juliet signals.

Yes, you are teaching them to be excellent captains. Because before you came along, they used autopilot to plot to a camping spot and fire HE from there. Now you make them move to the devil tune from "The Devil came down to Georgia."

They have to use keys like W, A S, D, and they have to look at mini map. They have to pay attention instead of watching illicit videos on some  weird site. You are making them engage the game, while not exactly making it fun. 

If a Petro is sleeping on a park bench, you make him move it or lose it. (trust me, they lose it.)

Keep working on it. You are well on your way. But remember. You are only 1 ship. You still need a team to win. 

Some day, a PVP tournament of brave players that know how to "cope with the stress and anxiety of CV trauma that makes them curl up into fetal position"  will allow CVs to play.

And players will participate from many brave clans that have a "Can Do attitude when it comes to CVs". And you will be among them. I am certain and optimistic of this some day coming to pass. 

Keep up the good work. Practice makes perfect. And so long as you keep perfecting your craft, you will succeed. 

I salute you captain.

<o

I remember those days of yore when I sailed in my BB swinging my turret like an appendage. "all by myselllllffff."

Then a CV comes along and I think: " I got AA, I can do this." But Remembers I installed range mod and took AA mod off. Ooooopps. 

*tries to turn. "Oh, this is awkward....*bombs drop, engine down....crap!

*calls chat..Help! Cruisers: Don't ask me, I am with Wooster. Wooster: I am with DM. 

"So you are both one AA bubble?"

Cruisers: "Hell yes!"*fidgets wears helmets and looks around a lot. "We are not moving from rocks, rocks safe."

*Unable to move TBs incoming, they drop, AA is haphazardly getting 2 planes. "great"

*two passes later and an AP drop...BB sinks. Team loses. Cruisers still refuse to come out. Red team cap other two caps. 

"I should have stayed with those two, then I can at least lose but not sink. Yeesh."

Step 1. Play OP ship with broken mechanics.

Step 2. Play low-tier OP ships with broken mechanics, at a low tier where the average AA value is generally not much.

Step 3.  Had some GG's, made a post about it.   

 

 

So glad you got some good stats for mechanic abuse.  IMHO this post should have been posted in the new player forum section and called '1 Reason Not To Play - Me'.

Welcome to the club. CVs to me are just an escape from bad teams anymore. You wont be limited by lemming trains or teams that refuse to move out of the spawn point anymore. I hope they break up the redundancy of poor teams for you like they do for me.

Dude go play all the CVs.  Just not the OP lines.  Yea you have even hit the 8s yet.

This is what happens when you focus on killing DDS and not farming for damage.  Starting with the first battles in CV, no 10 point captains out of the gate.

But I do suggest getting some captains up then doing CVs.   I'm so rocking it...not.

Look at what spotting DDS does in Rank?  Team game right.

Skill is relative.  The ability to do good in CVs is often a measure of one's skill in the game in general.  I don't know of any unicum CV player who suck in their aggregate of other ships.  For example, here are a few WRs for a few of OP's (pun not intended) other ships.  

Colorado: 57    73.68%

Wyoming: 37    72.97%

Bogatyr: 29      76.47%

Flint: 55            70.91%

In that regard, the ability to do well in CVs is par for the course.

Hah! I'll soon join the club. 3k random games, none in CVs.

The moment I play my first CV game in FDR (sorry to those who will be on my team) I'll start grinding these bad boys.

When you get your Ranger against AA T8 ships.  Repost!

1602981555_CVbottomtier.thumb.png.0dca73e4aa5c8606a8676beca85b058c.png

So far I got 6 tier 8 matches in the ranger.  5 out of 6 were moderate damage victories like this one.  The two kills in this battle were from a Flint and a Massachusetts.  I will likely play more games in this ship to increase the sample size.

 

I've noticed some interesting things when trying out CV for the first time:

1)  Your karma disappears faster than a pot-roast in front of a 600 lb man in an all you can eat buffet. 

2) I've so far had destroyers try to team kill me at the beginning of two separate games. (One gave up, the other must have been autobanned because he stopped moving after doing some damage.)

3)  No one expects you to brawl in a CV.  This trick caught many people off guard......

4) There is no shortage of ''fan-mail'' in the chat box.  The better you do in a CV, the more fan-mail you get.  Particularly from the enemy team.

 

As requested, I will try to acquire some tier 8 carriers soon.  I don't run premium so it may take me some time.

So far I just unlocked the Weser and Ranger yesterday.  At this point I plan on grinding all of the cv lines except the British.  Patience, proving forum-ites wrong takes some time!  :Smile_teethhappy:   I will try to flip the win-rate in the Weser later next week.

To be fair, I don't think anybody has the gonads.

I can't remember ever seeing anything where a bunch of kids were massacred in graphic detail.

And even if you did have the gonads, you wouldn't put that in if you like box office receipts.

I do pretty good on Ryujo because I played too much Midway and AA isn't good and people don't dodge as much as they do in tier X. Yes I play more Midway than Ryujo.
