One recent game, I hid all my CV to row 47xx, south to Guadalcanal, to avoid IJN CV and hoped to ambush them when they focused on my transported.


But she did not


Instead, IJN CVs came in from the west of Guadalcanal, I managed to kill one medium CV, with the help of flights from Henderson (probably Junyō) and heavily damage the other which was still operational. Soon the IJN retaliated using her heavy CVs and laid waste to all my CV which happened to appear south of Guadalcanal, but closer to the island itself.


The surviving cruisers from the CV TF was joined by a BB-led TF from New Caledonia heading towards Henderson, chased down the IJN main CV TF. the IJN CV TF managed to wipe out the original CV TF using the very wicked torpedo salvo, but the BB fleet managed to wipe-out-everything-single-gorram-ships (i.e. 2 CVA, 1 CVE, 1 CVL and all the escorts) in the subsequent turns by main guns only.


It was sure crazy.


Some thoughts: I don't know why the setup allows IJN coming from the west in the first place.


Second, I am thinking the IJN should have 3 CVA, not 4...

Correct me if I was wrong.

Finishing enemy carriers with main guns would be the dream of any IJN Admiral  Okay
