Carrier Combat for Tier 5

Ever since WoWs removed manual aiming for tier 5 and lower carriers, it's been a real pain...

I use Japanese ships. My squadrons have only 4 planes whereas when I go up against a Bogue, I have 0 chance of being useful. Their squadrons come with 6-7 planes, how the heck am I supposed to fight against that without manual fire? My planes just get crapped on.
There was even one match where the matchmaking was so awesome I got matched with a tier 6 CV on opposite team. Holy crap was that a bullshit round.

 

Anyone have any idea of strategies?

You basically have two options:

 

1.) Hope that your opponent is bad and won't be able to counter play you effective.

First try to lure his fighters away with the DBs, then add your own fighters for good measure.

Remember, no fighting, just kiting.

 

If it works, yay, your torp bombers can now drop on a target of opportunity.

 

The rest is pretty much the same, try to lure his fighters away, if he is somewhat awake he'll ignore your DBs

after the 1st to 2nd attempt and search for your TBs.

In this case lure him away with one TB squadron while the other one and the DBs deal damage where possible.

 

Also remember that bombers are faster without their payload, try to get an early hit in with your DBs to improve their speed.

 

2.) Free exp to Ryuujou
