IJN.

Wrecking USN fighter squadron since 2017

(note "squadron" not "squadrons")

Edit: Don't bully me

Here's the thing, I'm grinding USN carriers because I like their planes more plus great fighters, but at the same time, IJN carriers have more strike potential against ships because of their number of squadrons.

 

So...

IJN CV are infinitely better at every single tier, you are gimped in every single way possible when you go USN CV. Until War Gaming buff USN CV in June or July this year, you may as well forget about USN CVs altogether.

Do we even need a vote. IJN CV has forever been the go to no matter how hard RNG try to screw you.

IJN fits any meta with their sheer utility and raw damage output.

No. Hiryu get face beaten by Saipan give or take. IT is the single stink ship in the line , and even then not so much.

With 0.6.0 Hiryu and Ranger now have access to DFE with only 11 captain pts. I'd say the advantage now goes to Hiryu because it can one shot Saipan in 1 wave while Saipan can't do the same to Hiryu.

That's why I've taken to playing my CVs only in coop battles. At tier 4 though Langley is still decent, despite being slow as hell. It's at tier 5, at which picking whether you'll be AS or Strike starts to matter, where IJN CVs start to dominate. I hope they'll either buff USN CVs or nerf IJN CV's strike/AS capabilities.

 

I've seen good USN CV captains that despite being in a Independence/Ranger/013 Lexington, they still contribute massively to the team. But then, they're one in a million. :tea_cap:

 

Players: "IJN" no "USN" no "IJN" no "USN"

Weebs: GRAF!

Cue a million whines when the Graf falls short of their expectations. :hiding:

It's strange that most USN CV strike loadouts I saw do better than AS. A strike Essex even outdamaged and killed more ships than a Taiho once.

I really miss the old Midway and Essex with their cross drop torpedo strike. They even deleted my full health NC once without losing a single plane. Terrifying :playing:

Not particularly far down the CV line atm but I prefer the USN. Strike loadout's tricky, sure, after evading enemy fighter squadrons I'd rather my planes survive the bomb/torpedo run on the enemy ship without getting wrecked by AA. USN's a tad slower and less squadrons, sure, but I find those squadrons harder to shoot down than anything else, personally.

This is the strangest thing, that "Great Marianas Turkey Shoot" in which Taihō,Shōkaku, Hiyō all were sunk by US Air planes ... the USN strong planes, but i guess having 300 more planes than the IJN did help.... its strange that the US line is not as equal to the IJN at least?

poor USN only 3 out of 25 votes

#Buff USN

 

even though my best performing CV is ranger (even I can't explain why that is I thought that even honsho was a lot better) I didn't vote USN.

No. The USN CV are strong , but they are extremely inflexible compare to overwhelming demands from many areas required by the team. "The Great Marianas Turkey Shoot" do not happen in game for the following reason :

Unlike IRL , IJN captains are smart enough not to manfight US FT head on but go around the defence and utilize squadron advantage to swarm targets not defended or are meat shielded by their own FT

Unlike IRL , IJN captains are clever enough not to go over escort elements and ignore the brutal AA defence from US cruisers and BBs.

Unlike IRL , IJN captains are able to adjust a flexible defence and offence combination to tire enemy ships spreading throughout the map instead of sticking into one big stack of doom.

I really want to play carriers but I only got them both at tier 5 :( so IJN are just dead for me at this stage. Does anyone know whats the best way to set up a bogue and the captain skills for this patch? Plus what load out to use. I was thinking maybe 201?

 

Edit - IJN still feel a lot better at tier 4/5 as you can still manage to take out dds (if they're stupid0). If your in a USN CV and a dds chasing you and you've got no support your basically screwed.
