Issue with U.S.A carrier

I got the Bogue Tier V carrier and i found this so ridiculous. 2 fighters and 1 dive bomber, really? what a big joke! The most interesting thing when you play carrier is the toperdo bomber. Dive bomber, another big joke - maximum damage 5400. really? Dive bomber automatically dropping is terrible and manual drop is much more difficult compared with toperdo drop. I do almost no damage to the enemies and my mission is to command 2 fighters to shoot enemies aircraft. That so boring? Next tiers have no differences, dissapointed! If i could choose again, i would definitely choose japan carrier and I decided not to up tier this US carrier anymore.

Good for achieving air superiority against enemy carriers to be honest. But that loadout is not really good for offensive strikes or when there are no enemy carriers.

 

Alternatively if you want to play offensive, there is always the offensive setup (0/1/2) or the stock setup.

Bogue has one of the most accurate dive bombers out of all the carriers.Use them properly and you can still take out ships with ease.

Ok then you will find this so boring because your main task is to destroy enemy's aircrafts but not enemy's ships. Japan carrier still have more advantages. Since they deal tons of damage to enemy's ships, they get lots of xp and cash. My highest xp score in a match was about only 700 while Japan carrier can easily get 1500+ xp a match.Also Japan carrier's playstyle is the style that player call "the true carrier", if i choose offensive setup 0/1/2 with 0 fighter and Japan's carrier with the same tier have 1 fighter, 2 toperdo boomber and 1 dive boomber, which one do you think better ?

I still say carriers are boring and all need double the plane squadrons with half the damage potential on each.

Nothing to do for 90% of the time you play a CV.

 

The flooding and blazing chances are double as well due to multiply Squadron

And the amount of planes is based on the CV size and the planes themself

Yes Japan Carrier are fun to play since OBT, before that it was fun for all ships with decent AA Power.

Thats the reason why the majority is saying CV is op, even in NOOB hands.

If you got up against a U.S. Cv with fighter load out you won't be doing much of anything , you planes will be all dead , most IJN cv drivers are crap anyway always try to rush kill the other cv , that's an easy tactic to counter as we'll , and if you stuck with fighter but no cv on other team use em as scout , did hate being lit up all the time

pls go play high tier and fight taiho and hakuryu with figther loadout with your USN ship then shut up. this still isnt much of an issue because most forum peeps still has not reached high tier. all of you would be howling once you reached them.

nope, they will give us's 3-0-2 load a good fight then eat all their ammos as their torpedo bombers kill your CV. then you feel like a real sh8 and utterly useless when no enemy CV.

 

meanwhile, IJN carriers still get good bombers and torpedoes at air superiority setup, so they can safely go for that setup without worrying whether they have an enemy CV or not. REAL BALANCE RIGHT THERE.

What if there is no enemy CV? Command fighters to shoot enemies's ship or being killed by their AA guns ?

Happened to me a couple of times. I announced to my teammates that i was useless in non carrier situation. They told me to scout with my fighters. I scouted the whole match. I spotted a DD 24/7 until it got destroyed, i destroyed enemy ship' artillery spotters, I scout for enemy DDs at crucial points. I scouted near the flag of enemy ships whereabouts. All the while, i manual aimed my dive bombers at enemy most vulnerable ships, the battleship Myougi, and auto aim at the faster more nimble destroyers.

 

We won the match. I did around 790 xp, all good for 2000 xp after the win multiplier and premium multiplier.

Maybe, just maybe scouting and highlighting enemy DDs until they are smashed to death from your team-mates.

Unfortunately at the moment US CVN is only good at air superiority. Play IJN CV if you want more anti ship capabilities.

Probably WG would introduce another US CV line for anti ship in the future/upon release but we just have to wait

when you reach tier 9 and 10, you'll find out that IJN CVs are both good at air superiority and anti ship at the same time.

That's why this is a joke. Aircraft carrier for scouting and drop weak damage booms down to the enemies? It's becoming "too small" for its value. Don't u get the point?

Uh, when i get to USN carrier, i don't expect to get tonnes of XP from sinking enemy ships. I just expect to shoot down a lot of enemy planes. With the occasional job of scouting, it took me a while to adapt to this playstyle, but now i thrive in it. Higher tier USN carrier gameplay may be a lot different though.

Good to know. Still a long way to tier 9 CV :)
