I’ve played all the scenarios multiple times, but I can’t figure out what the point of revenge raids is. I start with one carrier south of Shortland. Do I move NW/N/NE and look for transports? I’ve played this a dozen times and sure as the sun rises, I get attacked from Rabul by 11:40 am. Then I have to retreat south. I don’t have the range to launch before that against any targets. Is there some way to avoid detection? I have no idea what the search patterns for the IJN player are, what ships he has to target or any strategy except to get hit and retreat. Is that supposed to be fun?

I think this is rather an introductory scenario designed for players to get familiar with the rules and mechanisms of the game but i agree it should be most probably revised. Personally i first try to raid Rabaul and then to find japanese ships if possible but i recognize it is very difficult to achieve surprise with the current gameplay and rules.
