When I played Omaha, i get about 1000 exp for around 40k damage. But when i played Bogue, I get only about 900 exp for 80k damage. What gives? Is carrier get less exp than other ship type?

Because WG wanted to make CV extinct. :hiding:

 

jk, CV were OP quite a while ago and they nerfed their exp and credits gain. With new patch CV got nerfed again due to reward mechanism changes but WG forgot to un-nerf it (though what they actually said is that CV earns just as much as before, no idea)

Because you do not tank, and you do not spot. :P Go tank in your CV. And kill a lot of plane. I mean lots. Only way to gain xp.

Any detailed report?

If you want to get more xp you need spot and cancel cap

20 plane kill gives qlmost the same exp as a solo cap. Go play fighter loadouts.

You gotta shoot down planes for XP in a carrier. Shooting down planes is a CV's main XP source. BB/CA main source of XP tend to be hits with guns, and I think DDs are cap and torpedo ribbons.

Well, I did played fighter loadout in Bogue sometimes. I ignore the DB and only play the fighters. I shot down over 20 planes in several occasion. But if remember correctly, I only get about 500xp for those which make me return to the 1 fighter, 1 TB loadout. 

 

On other issue, for a carrier, there should be an indicator that warn us when our planes have been spotted by the enemy.

There is an interesting opportunity to research regarding these in our very forums. Just compare Hall of fame Q3 and Q4. You will be able to see what changes in the score cards that causes XP rise and falls.
