Anyone knows that this is a lame mode manual for fighters..

Should we remove this or not?

But why?

 

Cuz it eats bombers like no tomorrow. I use it all the time to troll low tier CV players.

 

Personally I'd like a manual control mode for Fighter vs Fighter combat, but not something that can just straight up eats all the bombers in 1 go. Removing/replacing suicide loadout (USN Strike pack tier5-8) is also neccessary.

So everyone can use the even lamer point-and-click-then-leave fighter control instead of strafe that actually require a bit of skill? How about no? :D

strafe needs to be changed in 2 ways 

 

1. it does not work on any planes dog fighting 

2. it uses all the planes ammo

*Strafe* :trollface:

 

But seriously though, strafe exists to keep the balance. Otherwise the CV with more fighters will win most of the time because they can achieve air superiority much more easily.

Existence of saipan will prevent strafe from being removed

Lemme tell you a story.

 

Long ago before this strafing function implemented, there were whines & critics about carriers being destroyed early in the game and this was mostly done by coordinated/spam attack from a CV or 2. WG responds by giving the fighters the holy strafing & CV re-balance. Although it did improved in resolving the situation but in the higher tier, it was still an issue. Then comes WG giving tier 8~10 carriers the AA Defense consumable.

 
And the journey lives on.....

 

But seriously it's like that. There are still coordinated attack from enemy carriers until this day & newbie carrier players are unaware of this function.

Um. Seem like you is the one who lost a lot of TB and DB planes to fighter with manual fighter attack. You could say, this mode very usefull "With Some Of Sacrifices" for IJN CV where enemy fighter attack your planes and you just could run your attacked planes straight and your fighter going straight your ongoing attacked planes while enemy fighter following your planes in straight line.
