CV, fighter vs fighter t9 advice needed!

Hello all!

 

I need your advice because my experience with carriers is really really low and i have ALOT of trouble playing against other CV captains in tier 9! (and against saipan but that's a different matter)

 

The following:

 

my 2 fighters are about to engage the 2 fighters of the essex/taiho.

What i usually do is dogfight ->exit strafe - strafe but how do i handle if the essex(taiho) does the exact same thing? I usually have always been successful but this time the enemy CV must be anticipating it (which does not suprise me) but they seem to know how to win this easily while i just sit there and watch me getting strafed into oblivion.

 

What happens is this:

*dogfight between our fighters while second squads linger.

*setting mine to strafe and the other to exit strafe.

*enemy cv fighter(dogfight) exit strafes into my second fighter squad which i'm still preparing.

*while my first fighter squad (dogfight) is still stunned? and getting strafed now by his second squad. (exactly what i wanted to do to him)

*all of a sudden my first squad is destroyed completly and the other one heavily crippled while enemy CV squad lost at max 2 planes.

 

 

The solution seems to be simple... just be faster i guess? More reactive maybe? Is that the answer? I still can't be sure. Isn't it a risk to exit strafe a dogfight i to my fighters? i meam i could anticipate exactly that and punish this heavily no? So is what the enem CV does to me just a risk or gamble move? Should i always anticipate this kind of behavior? The problem is that if i hesitate to long with setting all this up he will simply delete my fighter in the dogfight but isn't that kind of the same thing? I'm totaööy confused, can't wrap my head around it please help Q_Q

 

 

Yes i have watched all of Farazelleths videos more then 3 times already, ALL OF THEM *huge fan ♡*

but i can't seem to find him getting into those situations or i simply don't recognise them yet.

and reengage.

Your advice changes everything, thank you very very much. With this, there should be no problem at all ever again! (in theory)

 

Can't wait to try it out on my Taiho after i practiced it in my Shokaku or Kaga first ♡

 

(the most value information was that my fighters aren't stunned after an exitstrafe happens...)

Emphasis mine :Smile-_tongue:

Good luck, though, always nice to see people that come to the Formu asking "how do I do it" rather than insist "this game is broken, WG fix this sh*t and nerf everything that's not me, especially more skilled players" :Smile_honoring:

It's "stunned" till either his exit strafe ends or till you give a movement command :cap_like:

This I did not know. Thank you.

Very useful, thank you.

 

So the first person to 'bail' from a dogfight risks annihilation of that squad if the other player is switched on enough.
