Insta-Service Carrier?

Hi ppl.

Just played a map and saw a Zuiho insta-service it's TB squadrons - like, they flew to the ship, disappeared, reappeared, then started flying right back at me - no wait,  2 TB attack sorties in as much time as it took to fly back to the CV.

Has anyone seen this before because I assume it's some kind of hack.  TBs on the Zuiho have like a 25 second service time, don't they?

 

Cheers

 

Hopfolk.

you do realize the Zuiho has two TB squads? I suspect he landed one and launched the other (possibly had been destroyed elsewhere so you didnt see it return)...

2 x TB squadrons came at me and bracketed me, then the same two squadrons came back at me within 30 seconds.

I wish I knew how :)

 

Then I guess there is no replay. You have to enable it:

 

1. Open for editing the preferences.xml file.

2. Scroll it till the last lines:

</scriptsPreferences>
</root>
 

3. Paste this line before </scriptsPreferences> line

<isReplayEnabled> true </isReplayEnabled>
 

4. This is how you should see the result:

<isReplayEnabled> true </isReplayEnabled>
</scriptsPreferences>
</root>
 

5. Save file & launch the game client.

6. Enjoy the game!

Actually no. With proper captain skills taken IJN TB squads only need 16 seconds to service. Combine that with the fact that you can land 2 squads at a time and you get:

- recovery time: ~10 seconds (you can actually accelerate this a bit by going backwards as soon as your planes are landing. Likewise it's going to take longer if you're moving forwards)

- service time: 16 seconds

- launch time: 20 seconds total (10 seconds for each squad)

Then you need to add flight time, which depends on the proximity of the CV.

Assuming he was in close proximity to you AND he had no deck activity otherwise 30 seconds until he can launch his first squad back into action seems reasonable.

 

EDIT: Totally forgot about it because usually no one ever uses it but there is an upgrade you can slot that cuts down service time even further (so with all skills and the upgrade taken IJN TB service time would be ~14 seconds).  May even make sense to use it on a Zuiho considering your fighters are kinda dead weight anyway as you cannot strafe.

Exactly what I was going to say. While the 1st squad is rearming the 2nd can land, and then while the 2nd is rearming the 1st one is already taking off.

 

To be fair before opening this I expected to see something about Saipan and how fast his 3-plane TB squads rearm :cap_money::cap_haloween:

Not everything you don't understand is a hack or a cheat, in fact most of the things aren't. It's just you not knowing any better

It's probably the Type 98 Automatic Aircraft Launcher and Receiver System on the third upgrade slot. Not a lot has been built during the war due to the constant problems with the steam pressure.

there's 1 golden rule here OP. Replay or it didn't happen. Come back when you can add proof to your claim and we'll be ready to tear the place apart. Until then assume you'll get the LTP card in your face.
