I have found that if it draws attention and gets you ganked you must be doing something right. Early on when the carrier upgrade was new I could not see through the swarm and started to cycle for the first squishy that came up as a target. Of course that meant the carrier pets. Guess the carrier was a lead because next thing I know I was the first ganked for the rest of the match. If i had my wits about me I would have given a shout out to my team.
Given that experience I would have to say there is a method to Claydermunch's madness.
Dont bother trying to convince those that think carriers are op. They arnt willing to actually learn and change tactics to exploit the extremely obvious weaknesses. Why would they? Its much easier to come onto the forum and whine about them instead.
