Just lost a whole carrier group because they'd rather bomb transports than an enemy carrier group. Which they knew was there.

This is retarded.

I'm done.

Here is a fishnado. It is cleaning up the remains of your fleet.

I used to feel the same frustration...but after a while I realized the transports sinking might be saving my LCU's a lot of future grief...besides....if my carrier pilots are looking at their fuel gauges...they might feel good hitting ANY target...in lieu of none..

Well I guess you dont have the stomach for this sadisticly challenging, utterly troubling, ruthlessly annoying, time consuming, monstrously complicated, heartlessly ignorant, ferociously tempting, and simple game.

As an aside, I just finished reading "Rising Sun, Falling Skies." Given the outrageous (but actual) events detailed there, my primary conclusion is that the players in AE have far too easy a time in managing and directing their military assets!

How do you know they know. The fact that the intel reached you doesn't mean it reach the pilots

Well depending on the detection levels, but I have player against AIs many times and they do cheat, no doubt.

That's right, the AI really puts it to you. If you can't take it you'd probably bail in a PBEM.

On the other hand, I had a bombardment and aircombat battle group encounter a large but poorly escorted Japanese invasion fleet by chance. Oh the glorious carnage! I'll bet the AI wishes it knew how to do save and reload

The easy thing is to quit and go home. You're really not affecting anyone but yourself. Hence, the ridicule you're getting.

Understand during Coral Sea IJN fliers reported they sunk a carrier and battleship when they
bombed USS Neosho and USS Sims.

Because the supreme commander knows the carriers are out there doesn't mean the fliers see them
or recognize what they're attacking.

If you're a relatively new player (or even a player like myself that forgets sometimes) I'm guessing their may have been some stones you left un turned...



Details like what was the air ratings of the commanders involved, what kind of search did you
have on the area, what was fatigue levels, was enough escorts involved, are enemy forces under a cloud bank or other factors...

There are times just poor luck plays out and you have to hope next go 'round lady luck shines on you.

Maybe you'll give it another go when the impact wear's off. Keep in mind this is a very rewarding game and there are some like myself still learning and
refining gameplay and I like others bought this the day it was released 5 years ago.

Best of luck!

Ha! and of course it NEVER happened IRL that a pilot/squadron leader would attack anything other than the perfect highest value target in range!! (can you hear the scornful sarcasm???).

Just because the game emulates reality (rather than doing exactly what you wanted it to do) does not make it 'retarded'. Actually, that's what makes it fun!

Hoping you stick with it a few more turns!

This game takes a certain amount of patience. Some have it, Like all of the above responders, and some don't. If I gave up the first time I lost 3 or 4 CV's in a single action, I would of quite before buying this game 5 or so years ago and thrown WITP in the trash. Restart, Replay, Reload. Never give up....GP

This game is not for everyone.

Sometimes strikes hit the wrong target. And sometimes someone loses a carrier battle spectacularly. Both happened in the real war.
