So 2 friends and I decided to give this a jam after playing WOT a few years Back. 
 
What a beautiful game with stunning scenery and detail. the game was incredible for the first two hours, BUT THEN we started playing against carriers... 
 
WTF...   Just simply WTF. Can drop in on you at any stage and just send torps at your hull. You can watch the planes coming but no matter how fast you turn to face them front on, they will almost always be faster than you. 
 
we played 3 games against them and gave up. Seems like a major oversight. Also seems a lot of online hatred towards these ships so maybe no one is listening? 
 
GG WOWS 
 
Beautiful game but died in our hearts just as it as was getting great.

wow. carrier is damn OP

if u think that carrier is OP, then grind to it. get the carrier, and play it.

the best way to know what is that class strong and weak point  is by playing them.

 

after u know what's their strength and weakness, u will also know how to counter them

You show your side to the dive bombers and your bow to the torpedo bombers. Tier 4-5 CVs are easy to deal with since they cannot manual drop. The higher you go up in tier the less amount of CVs you face. But at low tier, there will always be CVs.

:fish_panic: “TORPEDO’S PORT 200 YARDS”

:cap_cool:     “Helm make ready to come hard to port, steady as she goes”

:fish_nerv:“aye captain”

:cap_cool:    “steady”

:cap_cool:    “steady”

...!

:fish_nerv:“now captain!”

:cap_cool:    “steady”

...!

:cap_cool:    “helm”

:fish_nerv:“YES CAPTAIN”

:cap_cool:    “now helm, hard to port”

:fish_nerv: “AYE CAPTAIN HARD TO PORT”.

 

PS, Did you get my comic sketch? No! well then ok, its actually not hard dodging torpedo and dive bombers from tier 4 & 5 carriers, you just need to watch the squadrons as they bear down onto you and pick your moment to maneuver .

Hi there, & welcome...

 

Yes, CV enemies can be very daunting for new players, you don't get to see them until tier 4...

 

At this tier, its the first of the carriers, on the minimap, you will see little circles which are planes, there's 3 types... Torpedo bombers (which have 3 vertical bars on their icon), these are slow planes), next you have bombers which has a bomb picture in its icon, then there are fighters which has a lot of fine lines in its icons. (Fighters won't attack ships, they attack other planes)

 

When you see planes coming at you (you can also see them coming on the minimap) , start turning TOWARDS the planes, this will minimise the amount of torpedoes that can hit you, if you are a slow battleship, be prepared to eat at least 1, there's not much to do about it because the ship is slow.... With bombers attacking you, keep zig zagging, as it throws their aiming off...  Planes can only drop one load at a time then they go back empty, so when you have been attacked, its best to go to a different area...

Ask in the match if anyone has AA to target the planes, or ask your teams CV for fighter support, as he will most likely send his fighters to attack the incoming enemy planes...

 

On YouTube there are bound to be some videos on how to survive CV attacks, as well as many videos on how to play, also different ships & techniques, info. Etc....

The main thing is not to be put off, it can be daunting at first I know, so ask other ships for support as well... Cruisers usually have the best AA (Anti Aircraft guns)

Best of luck, & hope to see you around in the games out there....

ah CV.... if you are in Battleship you will have a hard time againts it... for cruiser and destroyer you can dodge the torpedo bomber.

 

in higher tier CV is not threat for Cruiser since they have AADF that can rekt plane and decreaseit accuracy. for USN battleship you will have good AA..... for IJN Battleship and Destroyer.... CV is DOOM. but you can have an Anti Air build to mitigate the airstrike.

 

so here ismy advice, play French Cruiser :V

- high accuracy

- good burn chance for brainless HE spam

- LOOOOONG RANGE

 

the drawback is La Galissonniere... a Tier 6 cruiser that SUX so much.... other French Ship is good LEL

and as you can see on statistic, they are pretty strong.....

Yes CVs are a pain before you learn how to deal with them. But after practice even a South Carolina can dodge effectively.

The basics are simple, keep an eye on the minimap to watch for incoming planes, don't wait for them to drop torpedoes before you start to make your turn, remember it takes time to get the rudder over, especially on a battleship. Turning earlier will either allow you to dodge entirely, take fewer torpedo hits, or force the CV to reposition and try another attack meaning you get more time to shoot planes down. With practice you'll be dodging them like a pro when you get the timing down.

Also make sure you turn the right way, you want to end up going parallel to the torpedoes. Turn in the direction that requires the least rotation to achieve this. Usually towards the torpedoes works the best, but not always. Changing speed dramatically can also help, but if you drop your speed you may become vulnerable to a future attack until you can get moving again.

If you're playing with friends, group together to make for stronger AA, but make sure to take some ships with some AA to use. Also smaller ships like cruisers and destroyers can reliably dodge low tier torpedo bombers much more effectively.

So it's your first encounter with a CV and you b*tch and moan?? Get over yourself... Learn to use the minimap and develop some "Game-sense"...

I'll let you in on a secret how I deal with bombers... It's called ANTICIPATION...

I'm not gonna rip you and your friends a new one given that you're still new but really CVs aren't really that OP... They can be dealt with... You just need practice dodging torps and bombers...

This game wasn't made for pure casual play, there is a learning curve but it's not that steep...
