Well, Ryujo has 3 deck options in total; stock 1/1/2 and 2 upgrade options: 3/1/1 or 1/2/2. (fighters/torpedo bombers/dive bombers)

Ryuujo air superiority loadout. It is terrible, but it exists. The ship can choose between 1 fighter, 2 dive bomber, 2 torpedo bomber loadout and 3 fighter, one dive bomber, one torpedo bomber loadout. If you hate having proper influence on the game, you opt for the latter, because good luck getting anything done with the single dive bomber and torp bomber squad. Bonus points for sending your fighters around in one big blob, then getting them strafed out of the sky by the single enemy Ryuujo fighter squad.

AS Ruyjo like others said...

NOT met a single decent one of those so far,only lost to 1(!!!) game to AS setup player so far and that was a double carrier game,where the teammate Hiryu(I was in Independence,and even that game would gone different if I strafe the crap out of the friendly fighters when he locked...but my bad) was a Click Muppet(same goes for all the guys who play AS in random battles) they always want to play the Click on thingie whit their fighters wich only works vs another Click on Muppet.

Bait fighter blob whit some bomber get behind its blob strafe it done.

Had a game yesterday against one wich got so desperate vs my Independence so it actualy tryed to strafe,and got killed 2 of his squadrons in the process:Smile_facepalm:.(put him out of its misery after that stun)

Yes, an AS (air superiority CAW/flight mod) Ryujo. USN CVs had their available CAWs limited to 1 a few patches ago, while the IJN ones were untouched until recently (and the only modified one has been Hakuryu so far).

 

AS relies on winning the air battle and the team being better than the reds, because the punch it can deliver is quite pitiable (they still have quite the scouting potential, though). OTOH, people that choose to follow that way aren't usually that skilled and tend to group the fighter squadrons for a click fight, hence even discarding the scouting. If you practice and master strafing you can outplay them with ease, so I'd recommend doing so.

 

Salute.

AS settup of a IJN CV. Don't worry, well over 99% of the time when you see a CV using AS setup he's so bad there's no hope for him. Bait him with your fighters, do 1 drop with your DBs / TBs and you've already done more that that guy in his last 5 games combined

now i understand xd

It's worth pointing out as well that although IJN CVs have more squadrons at a time than USN CVs the individual squadrons are smaller than US ones (4 aircraft per squad IJN, 5 aircraft per squad USN, I believe).

 

Though this also has exceptions (Saipan).

4...5 planes per squad on IJN (depending on captain skills) and 6...7 planes per squad on US (depending on captain skills). Premium CVs may differ

Nor he has a real will to learn...

2 clicks would have told him what some just did.

Some people prefer to ask others over looking stuff up. He asked here, which is indicative of wanting to learn. Then he replied saying he understands. I don't see what the problem is.

US CVs have just 1 flight setup. He has no reason to think IJN CVs have it any different.

 

Lets say he always sees 1-2-2 Ryujos. Maybe even mistakes 1-1-2 for that same, not hard to do it. Suddenly there's a 3-1-1.

Remember that he has just 1 flight setup, has never had a reason to doubt that IJN CVs have 1 flight setup aswell, and has not seen a different flight setup on any Ryujos. That 3-1-1 doesn't fit in there.

 

And so he asks us = tries to understand, a.k.a. learn.

 

Simple, isn't it?
