A CV is NOT a glorified scout ship designed to cover for your lack of skill. It amazes me that BBs expect CV drivers to micromanage half a dozen flights at once and yet cannot manage to control ONE measly little plane... cmon admiral.
i agree with this, but only to an extent.
when i drive my bb, i do my best to manage my scout so that it doesn't splash. its alot easier to do that if you have a t5 scout though. Still, even with my T5 scout, I have run out of scout planes on my bb and have requested that a CV scout for me. Usually when i ask (i mean Ask, not ridicule or insult), somebody manages to get a scout to the area.
But on the other hand, there is a reason i run out of scouts in some of these games. Sure, i may launch not realizing i'm swarmed with enemy FP at the time because i'm more focused on the enemy BB line, and i'll take the blame for that all day long. BUT in such circumstances, if my CV cannot compete with these enemy FP, then they need to adjust their altitude, and drag them to the enemy BB line. So, if nothing else, said CV will have a better chance at killing an enemy BB's scout.
So, with all this being said, I usually run a FW CV. I notice higher winning rates when i do so because I provide vision for my BB's, and attempt to keep the enemy blind. And considering the fact that nearly EVERY BATTLE somebody gets their panties in a wad and starts to complain about their CV not providing vision, I think it would be an excellent idea to provide extra incentive to CV's who do scout. Doing so would increase the amount of CV's attempting to provide vision, and lessen the argument of those who wish to rant and preventing the flaming from discouraging CV drivers from bringing out their CV's.
