...again as Castor has said random as ever. Main problem being the massive strikes that use the fighters spunges.

The model in Air to air leaves a lot to be desired for and the flak is well not much either.

Just taking a step back and looking at all the results and the response of people to these results.

What would you think a reasonable result for intercepting raids?

edit:

The things you can do:
- Set altitude in the band where you expect the raid to come in
- Set sufficient CAP

I have started reducing escorts if expecting a carrier battle or expecting long range torpedo bombers to attack enemy CAPped shipping.. I try to guestimate the amount of fighters available to the other player, guestimate his CAP percentage and set the escorting fighters to about 2/3s of the expected CAP (or more if I don't have ships to protect with my fighters).

The fighters will take a beating but it is plausible that, even when outnumbered, escorting fighters can keep the CAP at bay for the most part in the window you have from DETECTION to ENTERING FLAK RANGE.

If your CAP outnumers the enemy escort by sufficient number you'll be able to shoot down bombers disrupting the strike and it's effectiveness... That is what is important!

That's easy, I think there's a clear pattern. Every time I get result I like, it's reasonable. Every time I get result I don't like, the air model leaves lot to be desire...

So true... and not just true for the air game. It was absolutely outrageous that BB Haruna took 3 torpedo hits from US destroyers in a night fight.. We all know US destroyers are crap at torpedoing anything...

Definately... it is called AE airwar random generator. Nothing else and nothing less.

I start to have difficulties to understand what the discussion is all about.


If we are talking about the air war in general, claiming that the results are non-influencable rolls of the dice, is obviousely not true.
Every new player who stood up against a vet and got taught a lesson in appropriate air warfare can tell you that.
The combat results are to a certain part influenced by random events, but over time statistics even those random events out - when
luck turns one way and next time the other way - and the average result is measurably influenced by player settings.


There is a difference to carrier battles: those are often major single events where - compared to LBA combat - one or two days decides over
the outcome of a whole TOO for the next year.

This is the only major difference to LBA battles. It is a rare event! The rarer an event, the slower statistic build up.

This can leave the impression that carrier battles are not equally influenced by player action as LBA is, and frustrated players might conclude
that nothing they do has any impact on the battle outcome.

Which is wrong. Simple as that.

If you take the carrier battles in all the AARs as an example, you easily spot a tendency:
those players paying attention to their settings, use their assets in a more intelligent way, have an advantage in force relation, aircraft, or pilot
qualtiy, not per se but a combination of the list above, win carrier battles with a high probability.

Sure, there are exceptions to this rule, and these exceptions are often displayed and discussed the loudest, understandable because the player who
lost such a battle might say "I did everything right, why did I lose?", but they are relatively rare compared to the statistical norm.



And I´d like to point out something which is often forgotten when using the word "random" in this context:

The outcome of the Battle of Midway was for nearly 6 decades thought to be the result of a huge stroke of luck combined with exceptional heroism.
Exactly what I would translate into game terms as randomizer. Only in Shattered Sword, very recently, it was suggested that the outcome was not
as exceptional and lucky as it was thought since WWII.

Is it clear what this implies? It took historians and naval strategy theoreticians 60 years to get accustomed to the idea that Midway went exactly the
way force relations favoured, and was not the most heroic act in USN history against overwhelming odds.
But those complaining here about a random
factor are convinced they are able to exclude the presence of any deciding factors governed by the player?

Hm.

Look at the other carrier battles in history which were not decided in advance (Marianas Turkey Shoot was decided in advance, if you set up the same conditions
in game you will probably see one IJN victory in 1000 engagements). Coral Sea? Solomons? In both those battles there were random events inlfluencing the final
battle outcome.



It is so funny: You could critizise the same random generator in WWII CV engagements. The only difference is the scale, there were no carrier engagements
which equal those happening in game.



Anyways, just a few c´s.
I just won a large carrier battle and am in the mood to celebrate. Must have been my lucky day...

For everyone who is pondering whats going on here I have a youth photo from Castor Troy and LoBaron.

Here is the snapshot showing them both discussing the air system when they were a bit younger.






If you ask me then it is time for both to start a PBEM against each other

While I apreciate your input Gräfin, an enjoyable (is there any other that makes sense?) PBEM requires
the players to like, or at least at some level comprehend each other. This aint no WWII.

I can think of less masochistic ways to spend my precious spare time over the next 5 years.

I could poke at my eyeballs for example. With a toothpick.
