Now stepping up as the most OP CV (so I am told) after the Big E's sad demise.

 

So what is the best way to use those fragile T 7 planes against the ferocious AA of T8 9 and 10?

Don't buy it mate.... probably too late hahahahaha!

 

The way to use it is fast in-fast out, but you have to avoid the FLAK...

There's two ways to avoid FLAK:

1. wiggle like hell (which will ruin your speed so forget that);

2. time it right... and go in full blast. I suggest you try that. 

 

Aim, pick your target, boost like hell and after the drop, swerve a bit while boosting out.

Best would be if you "curve ball" in as well.

Use this build https://wowsft.com/ship?index=PJSA518&modules=111111&upgrades=124210&commander=PCW001&skills=2282365096&consumables=11&lang=en

 

As for the tactic... i think that the trailer exemplifies it; just attack, attack, attack (it's my tactic), as soon as you finish with one squadron pick un the next one.

Except they have as much hp as Shokaku ones and are only pinch slower...

Since 0.8.7 it’s much better indeed. Rocket fighters suck but 4 x torp runs are brutal.

Just cause Enterprise isn't sold anymore doesn't mean it doesn't exist anymore.

Why not? Imho it's the least punishing CV in the game when you make a mistake. It's not as effective as Enterprise but still very good one. You'll hardly be deplaned and having HE bombs it's easier to use by newer players . I'm having fun in my Kaga, not having big carry potential on higher tiers like Enterprise but doing it's job.

HAhahahahahhaha well enjoy, if you are in game over the weekend and have Discord I'll be happy to help out.

I don't have kaga but it's on my list if it is on sale. I expect it to be a "faster Ark Royal". Little flak-ditching, K-BOOM here goes half your planes. :Smile_trollface:

Still he'll do in Kaga better than in any other premium CV. I can even say that he'll be having better games than on other standard CVs on T8.

Likely - I hope so, for him. He'll learn eventually and sort of "Git Gud". 

I got Ark Royal so I could git gud. In that thing, it is easy to do "meh"and hard to do any good.

Not there yet... but getting there. And then I'll go slamming the higher tier campers.

I really like the Kaga. I tend to perform very unevenly on her, but that's probably me not the ship.

 

It's more vulnerable to groups sailing together imho, so you need to take care in the first quarter of a battle. Afterward - the buffet is open.

You can drop on anything (you'll be accused of cheating though whenever you bomb a dd in smoke :P) and few things cope well with this amount of torpedoes.

 

Just remember to take torpedo acceleration and survivability expert, and you're ready to roll.

Double the torpedo load of the shokaku and better HE bombs + larger aircraft complement. Doesn’t sound p2w at all.

Although it is less effective as a destroyer hunter due to the tier 6 fighters.

AP bombs are actually much preferable to HE ones in the current meta and superior RF performance is nothing to scoff at. These are tools to singlehandedly win matches with.

And it's not like Shokaku TBs are particularly bad, either.

 

Unless when faced with a pure or near pure BB match I'd prefer Shokaku over Kaga any time.

AP bombs are typically more useful and Kaga torps are on a per torp base worse than Shokek torps. Kaga torp drop has only 50% more damage potential than Shokaku one. The Kaga isn't bad, but it certainly is less versatile than Shokaku.

Love the Kaga... but at the moment cant put the Ark Royal down :D.      Enterprise dont play mine much as its the goto op CV ZZZzzzzzzzzz      maybe i should try getting the Graf Z to work :/ but them weak arse planes :(

 

HMS Audacious is my fav t10 (bias yup :P )  But if your looking for a solid good CV Kaga is great... if you fuk up it will punish you less with the plane pool the ship has, and is quite easy to rack up the Damage, not Enterprise size damage... but still good. If you pull T10 games you can try avoid the AA ships or if they are solo try killing them! but AA can be punishing trying to get fires on the ships to destroy the AA on them :/
