This is not an uncommon occurrence for me.

But would some of you CV players refrain from strafing friendly fighters when they're already winning the engagement...

Getting tired of watching near full squadron of fighters being wiped out by a greedy friendly CV to pick up 1 or 2 plane kills.

The old bait and strafe is a tactic but doing that is just plain Griefing

Thx

Happened to me in a game with Langley I had my fighters chasing down a squadron of enemy planes then the Muppet CV ally did a strafing attack on the enemy squadron when my squadron was closer and in between the two so I lost my entire squadron and struggled the rest of the match with one squadron of fighters which eventually got wiped out. Along with the majority of my torpedo bombers muppets planes were all over the map and not really contributing to the battle after that, I didn't even know at first what had happened because I was watching my torpedo bomber squadron attacking a BB so I feel your pain.

I really agree with you Apex, it is frustating to see our plane die a meaningless fight from ally...

 

 

If you want to use bait, then use your own plane! stop sacrifice your ally and the team pleaseeeeee

Back before strafing was as important I had my fighter squad escort the allied CV fighters so they could be more effective as a team. They follow closely and engage any fighters that attack the friendly.

 

So what did he do? made a bee-line for every AA gun on the enemy team. Didn't even scout anything useful! I was working my torpedo bombers somewhere else, so didn't notice straight away. Very annoying.

 

Now I don't try to help their planes, just a recipe to lose my own planes when they do stupid things.

It wasn't inexperience or lack of knowledge, as the player (US Air Superiority) stacked both fighter squads on top of each other (doubles the damage with 0 casualties)

problem is it's not the first time this has happened, luckily i knew what he/she was going to do and was able to move a fighter squadron that wasn't locked down out of harm's way.

 

Protip : strafe him back and teach him a lesson (when winning)

 

 

If only i went Balanced Module, it would of been worth turning pink for...

There should be a penalty mechanism when killing friendly planes, except yours for baiting reasons.

What if this nut job CV player kills off your entire torpedo squadron for lols.

As a CV player I know that feeling when an entire squadron gets shot down over nothing.
