I've posted a few times about carriers and destroyers and hope this video of a game I played helps new users, not just learn how to play a CV, but to avoid attacks. The score is only 72K and it was only around my 10th battle in the Kaga, but I missed a few shots and it took me a while to get going.

 

 

Spotting is really important early on and through the game. You'll note that I managed 100k spotting damage this game as I kept lighting up targets!

Rockets are best for agile targets, and 1 or 2 well landed salvos will take a DD out. To avoid these attacks, turning towards the attacker makes it hard for the CV player to land the hit as you shorten the attack distance, thus widening the salvo spread.

 

I find that cruisers can be tricky to hit with torpedo's as they are still relatively maneuverable, often turning away from the spread. I try to come in slightly from the front, and drop as close as possible, looking at the current posture of the ship. if its rudder is hard over, I know there will be several seconds where it cant turn so can use this to my advantage.

Battleships can be easier to hit as they take an eternity to change direction and their size makes them a big target, again, use a similar attack pattern to cruisers, however sometimes coming in an 90 degrees to broadside works, especially on the ships blind side, where they may be focused on another target.

 

Bombs are the most versatility, and can be used to attack any ship type, try to approach from the bow or stern, and land the bombs in the center, to score a citadel hit.

I'm no expert and am still learning so am equally happy for people to comment how I can improve too, but I'm very much enjoying playing Carriers. My next target is to get a kracken and hit over 100k in the Kaga!
