A) I've reported this up to the proper channel. Will let you know if I hear something back.
B) In the meantime, while this is an advantage a CV player could have in reference to a submarine which is hunting him, a few points.
b1) The likelihood a CV player will notice the defensive fighters took off, or makes the connection as to why that might have happened... is small. You have a niche advantage in understanding this mechanic better than others, which is interesting in a sense. Some small game mechanic interactions can be cool little tidbits you can roll into an advantage.
b2) You can negate the player's advantage by calling to your friendly CV to briefly spot the enemy CV. The Fighters which protect the hull last for 10 minutes, so as long as the enemy CV has been detected within the last 10 minutes would remove this "early warning".
Anyway, I'll let ya know if I hear anything. Don't be afraid to remind me in a week or two.
