Random plane kill score boards

I've been having mixed success after getting back into PvP lately. I'm trying hard not to be bothered by the effect on my PR and so forth... I'm trying to focus on the requirements for the Halsey campaign.

I'm not sure what all these score boards mean but I can say five things:

1. You can kill planes if you want too.

2. Killing planes, even a lot, does not make you immune to plane strikes - though at the end of the game if the CV player is desperate and not attacking sensibly, you CAN knock down all attacking planes before they strike. (Assuming your sector is set right and you use DFAA... sorry bit of a big disclaimer there...)

3. Killing planes appears to enrage some CV players - the more you kill the more they focus you and the more you kill 😛

4. Killing lots of planes gets you reported - a LOT. MAKRA GUD!

5. Driving through the enemy fleet in a hail of fire and barely surviving long enough to ram the enemy CV - gets you reported. GIVE PRAISE TO MAKRA!

"choked on water coughing vigorously" 74 planes?! wow you did save the surprise until the last one

That was a very long game.

It was domination and early on my team lost heaps of ships.

The enemy was ahead on points the whole game.

Somehow me and the survivors from my team managed to Daytona the map and whittle the bad guys down - they suffered what many teams do when they are wildly ahead on points and ships - overconfidence.

I most definitely played AA escort for the brave survivors - we turtled our way around until only the enemy CVs were left and I think the timer was beeping its final countdown as we sunk the last CV...

So yeah, not even really a proper AA build, just sector setting, DFAA and staying with other ships who are getting attacked by CVs.

My most intersting plane kill experience usually involve the dd or cruiser with almost zero AA like the Kagero,the quantity is not the part its how the lack of AA and how one can still survive with this lack of AA at times

That Shokaku wants you dead, but their planes say otherwise. My Neptune had a similar game when the tier 8 CV focused on me, not sure about CV's skill, but my build is not AA build.

They flew into something 😛

Just noticed your small print.

I missed Missouri (I could have got her but for some reason I didn't understand her value... *facepalm*) but I have Kronshtadt, Musashi and Alaska without any exp conversion too.

Feels good to "earn" them doesn't it?

There there. I did not get Kronshtadt that time because I was waiting for Alaska. Now I doubt I will have enough for new ships. "Earning" takes too much time when my time is getting lesser, kind of a silly way of getting one when time is precious. (Yes, I am one)

Ok, that was a bit rough. A win though, so that's good.

The division on my team were all 60%+ win rate and the whole team pushed all 3 caps at once which was awesome too.

The CV attacked me on numerous occasions - even when my team was capping other points and when I was just trying to run/evade its planes - which just seemed vindictive and wasteful.

The enemy DD stayed on back line giving me a free cap straight up.

I was running to try to help the Montana with AA but I screwed up, popping smoke and DFAA too early because I though the planes were coming for me... dammit, might have helped him live longer.

My Kidd is full AA build.

Yeah Seattle can put up pretty good AA with DFAA.

She handles herself pretty decently against Tier 10 planes too.

12 rocket planes, 14 dive bombers, 14 torpedo planes. The last 2 were fighters.

Was running AFT though, as I was using my Atlanta captain. But otherwise no AA related skills or upgrades except AFT, AA flag and AA guns mod 1 (two extra flak puffs).

It took me a while to allocate an (19 point) Atlanta captain to a tech tree ship because Atlanta is so skill hungry.

I ended up actually training him to Clemson... Which kind of feels like a waste (I so rarely go T4 clubbing) BUT although Atlanta needs AFT, most the USN DD line just get the most ridiculous rainbows when firing at max distance (heh, Max_Distance) with AFT and thus is a wasted 4 points (again, IMO). But Clemson is fine with AFT because has such a small range to start with.

But of course, having Monaghan, Sims and Kidd, I needed a pure AA captain, especially as I knew during last free retrain/ship swap we were entering the Age of the CV...

So, I have effectively a full AA captain (ie BFT and AFT) on my Clemson who spends most of his time in Atlanta but can do AA duties in Monaghan, Sims and Kidd (and other premium USN DDs I may gather along the way).

I also have a 19 point captain on my Gearing who is more of an all rounder DD captain - he mostly sees action in my DDs in Ops - where there are of course... no planes... (Dynamo, Dynamo, where for art thou Dynamo...?)

I am a bit put out that Alex Ovenchicken is actually not a good choice for USN DDs... They just don't need extra turret traverse speed. I have him on Seattle at the moment as USN light cruisers are actually the best use of his bonuses (IMO).

IDK I'm not a professor

No captain skill just only flags and AA mod 2 for T10

We were only against T4 CVs but T5 BB AA is pretty bad.  I was our only ship left on that side of the map and the CVs objected to my presence.  They eventually got me but after I got one of them.  Giulio is certainly not known for her AA.  My captain has BFT but not AFT
