"Both suck."

 

Probably, but I went down the Japanese carrier line just to have some fun in coop mode when torps ruin the day for every other boat in random battles. And maybe one day, carriers won't be as underpowered. 

 

But out I don't know if I picked out the right line to grind. The Japanese carriers end up putting more squadrons into the air while the Americans put in less but they do contain more aircraft. The Japanese carriers also have better concealment values, which is somewhat important when your boat has trouble defending itself from surface combatants.

 

But controlling just one squadron of torpedo bombers is hard enough. Two looked great on paper but now it seems like youll waste enough time setting up just one that the second will rarely be used.

 

I don't know. I'm about halfway through the Zuiho. Should I just stop and switch over?

More plane groups is better as you move up the line, so Japanese CV line is better

The german battleship line, the tier X Großer Kurfürs, is so big that you can see it from the moon... :P

 

 

 

 

 

what im trying to say whit this is that, the best you can do is wait, i mean, even when I like the game, right now is a mees that needs to be clean (i mean, you have to post this in the friking WOT forum becaus the WOW forum is not working since the game was release :facepalm:) ...

 

 

also, the carrier clase has been the lest played and more hated line in WOW since the beta for a reason, is borimg, and realy needs a serious re-work

I saw a comparison on the Founders Discord server comparing the two tier 10 CV's and the US was ahead in almost every category. I decided to switch and go US first for that reason and also there are less squads to worry about. I may do the IJN line after i'm a better player.

 

Also, we will talk about whatever we want in Off Topic, thanks.

interesting. The dive bombers are far easier to use and having more of them simplifies the gameplay a lot. There hasn't been any balancing work announced on any ship yet so I wonder if this will change in the future.

FLAMU an elite PC player streamer did a best of 7 tournament between tier 10 Air Craft Carrier battles of the IJN and US nations. The US AirCraft carrier AA totally annihilated the IJN squads. it was 12 v 12. US won 5-1.  FLAMU blatantly said the US carriers dominate.

Hopefully this isn't too dumb of a question, can you trade in the torpedo squadron for dive bombers? I did the tutorial for carriers and I'm not very confident in the torpedo squadrons lol. To be fair, I've only unlocked the first us carrier and don't play that often. I like dive bombers since they seem to be easier to control. Also, do the fighter squadrons automatically deploy against incoming threats?

No, and not a stupid question becasue I recall PC players had some more options in regards to carrier loadouts.

 

The squadrons you get are the squadrons you get, no trades, but some equipment does let you trade planes of one type for more of a second type. This won't affect squadron size but you'll get more reserve planes. 

 

Torps are hard to use, I recommend using cv's mostly for coop. Get the bombers flying first, then worry about aiming once they get close to the target. Keep changing the circle around as you see fit and use the timer to try and line up an attack run. It'll take some practice, and I recommend using torpedo bombers on bb's because they are generally the biggest targets, making a hit more likely.

Good advice, thanks! I generally start a match by launching my bombers towards the red spawn corner and refining the aiming as targets reveal themselves. I try to target enemy cv's first. Figure if I deny the enemy of airpower that will allow me to focus on their bigger surface threats and keep my team safe from air attacks.

not a bad idea against a human cv, but bot cv's are extremely dumb and they won't launch until a boat gets within their view range. Also, be wary of enemy aa fire. The further you send your planes, the more boats they might encounter along the way and there might not be much of a squadron left to attack with.

Well I haven’t played and cv yet but I’ve been thinking about it the Langley has no torpedo bombers so in my head that sounds like a huge disadvantage but now I see you guys saying the torpedo bombers suck

​On the receiving end, I find that torpedo bombers can be more dangerous if the carrier captain is competent.

Agreed but I’m not sure if it’s like pc or not if it is then I really have nothing to worry about

bogue gets a squadron of 4 though, and it's planes seem better than the biplanes on the Zuiho.

free xp'ed through it. I don't even bother playing the bogue or Zuiho in random battles either, just coop. Started out around 30k in Zuiho over there but now i typically club the bots for 40k in both.
