Sooo, just got a Graf Zep out of a santa box. Never played a CV in my life. Obviously wanna try it out but feel like jumping into a Tier VIII will end in tears. 

 

Would you just go for it and to hell with your random teammates ? I'm guessing most would tell me no but how would YOU acclimatise yourself in this situation ?

Ofc the answer is NO!

 

You will have a horrible time jumping with a T8 CV right in a random game. This is no different for any other ship either. You play coop and you play the lower tier CVs aswell. Might even go to the training room and get a feeling for the controls - thats what I did! This all takes time. After some coop with CVs, you grind the T6 CV and play it in Operations. Once you consistently deal 100k dmg in Operations, you are good to go for randoms.

Step one is to play it in coop to learn the basics. I cannot advise it with good conscience to play CVs at lower tiers first, as there are already too many CVs there.

Play IJN CVs up to T8 to get used to how torp spam + AP bombs plays.

 

Then forget about Graf Zep, because Shokaku is so much better than this floating piece of crap.

Play coop and test rooms until you are comfortable with the general CV gameplay.

 

I maybe switched to randoms too early when I started playing carriers, and now my Ark Royal will probably always sit at 45 % WR.

 

Oh well ... :)
