Hi,

I'm finding that Carrier Vessels don't usually do any damage, but rather take it, when attacking any sort of enemy ships. Is this right? Is there any way to tweak this so that they actually serve for something in naval battles ?

Thanks

My carriers usually are pretty effective. Have you changed your attack mode to naval/tactical?

Yep, you need to switch it from fighter/escort to naval/tactical, so you don't send fighters in the hope they will somehow sink BB-s. Right click on them and switch the mode. Keep in mind, in this case they will be very vulnerable to fighters, so keep some nearby other CV on fighter, just in case you need escorts.

Yes, I found this need to change the default mode of carriers to be one of the least obvious and most frustrating aspects of the interface when first learning the game. I still sometimes forget to change it when a new carrier reinforcement enters.

I think it would have been better for the default mode to have been bombers (or even mixed) rather than fighters.

We should have a sticky for this question given how often it is asked...

There's a learning curve, that's for sure. Player's at different skill sets, also.
