  1. yo dan, the problem you had with dd flitting in and out of time and space could be a ping/internet issue perhaps ( i have had the same issue, along with some clan mates) or as I have heard, some "people" for a lack of a better term have some kind of mod called ping blocker. so you get a terrible disadvantage when those "people" are using it. either way buddy, keep pluggin along

    A few words to new players in regards to team play

    "kill stealing" is a lie, KILL THE ENEMY is rule 1. a dead enemy cant shoot back (except sneaky pre death torps) HIT THE SAME TARGET... simple really, refer to rule 1.

    Gamebreaking bug with fighters

    cheers for the info on japanese D/B very interesting. very tight reticle sounds good. I have just started going for japanese CV now after running US CV to tier 8. I just wanted to use a thousand squadrons in every game lol. Who cares if its balanced, it is what it is, but I do love US CV`s

    A Ranger captain requesting for help

    well, good points, but personaly, nothing but bombers here. stack your carrier with as many AA buffs as you can, skill up the comander for AA as well. then smile as japanese planes burn up like little bits of paper. send your bombers after threats, DD is high on the list of threats. DD are the worst enemy of any CV IMO. enemy fighters can be an issue, but then use team mates for AA to bust enemy fighters. putting your ranger in a "torp neutral" spot between 2 islands works well. the only time I put the fighter deck on the ranger is to do the shoot down enemy planes mission, then I switch back ASAP. as for the original 1/1/1 load..... that is the worst thing out, your missing a whole flight of planes.

    CV's and their lack of movement

    But also, if you do see a CV sitting somewhere (behind an island etc) and there is no one near to him (10 km or so) go and back him up. chances are the CV is on a bombing mission or some other priority engagement that is taking up more of their concentration than it should, and they are not looking at the mini map. by the time they spot the fact no one bothered to keep an eye on them to provide DD protection and get moving, it`s usually too late and a DD pops up to ruin the day. granted it is a bummer for all, but a CV is only a CV if he is looked after. map awareness is EVERY ONES responsibility

    Dive Bombers or Torpedo Bombers?

    as a yank CV bloke, I only use the bomber set up (unless I have to do a flaming skies mission) torps are kick ass damage dealers..... but 1 flight of them is a limitation that sux (but keeps the CV from being OP). they are good against big slow ships (unless you have some exp in thier use). they can be launched manually to hit DD in smoke that think they are safe (suckers) Dive bombers are really good too....... but you have to pick your targets well.Manual aim is best(but controlling 4 flights of planes and doing manuals can be tricky) the fires are a good earner, the dives are great for hitting those nasty little DD/light cruisers that are giving you the guns and they have a fast turn around which is nice. the indy has good AA so i never worried about fighters, the ranger is even better but in the end, whatever floats ya boat
