Playing As a Lower Tier Carrier

One of the most frustrating things for new carrier players is getting rekt by higher tier US carrier fighters.

So just avoid them, and use your other carrier's planes as bait. :P

At the start of the game, don't use your planes to scout, instead, keep them flying over allies near you. If enemy fighters come, immediately send them back to your carrier (they cant get shot down while on your flight deck, at least in WOWS)

When the enemy fighters go back to their base, then you send out your torpedo bombers. This requires a lot of looking at your map though.

Normally I play Ninja Planes when that happens. Might try it out. But if it's a 2 v 1 CV match, both of you can coordinate attacks, one will have to be sacrificial pig while the other the main attack

 

Yes I agreed ..

 

But for me if i using IJN CV currently tier VI (Ryujo with offensive flight mod), better try take out one of enemy CV (especially that had fighter superiority  - sneak out your main forces (usually TB) , meanwhile the DB will go directly through center map if possible attack enemy CV to get fire damage ..) assuming dmg CV will use Repair Kits) after several minutes then your Main forces TB will finished the CV ( at least 4-6 torpedo hit and let flooding dmg do the job) coz it need more than 120sec to use other repair kit .

 

But it different when using USN CV currently tier 8 (Lexington with stock flight mod) will try use 2 fighter to gain some air superiority but if outnumber ...try to drag enemy Fighter to nearest USN Cruiser than dogfight there (it works when engaging fighter group form IJN CV Taiho and Hakuryu class) then use TB and DB to dmg any ship especially CV and BB then other depend of situation ...

 

Just share my opinion ...

Not a lot,

You are right not many people really thought of that idea all they do is to send their planes and fight or just die like that especially IJN CV players IJN fighters aren't meant to fight they can be really useful in escorting your ship and escorting your attacking planes why? Because if let's say a USN fighters coming in bunch to try attack your planes if your fighters are escorting they would buy some time for your attacking planes to launch a full attack in your target is Okay if you lose your fighters I am sure there are few left in your hanger use them to escort your ship this is for starting the game. For the late games since you don't have much fighters just let them hang around flying around your ship as your first line of defence while your attacking planes plot your planes well during late games there must be a gap where your opponent did not notice your planes I mean come we are all human can't multitask a lot XD so plot your attacking planes smartly that's all from me~ daniel98 poi :honoring:
