... But Langley and Bogue drivers in particular.
Pay attention to the minimap. Pay attention to the flow of the battle.
If you sit there stationary for the first half of the match while one flank slowly collapses, then spam F7 and F8 when enemy destroyers start pelting you with packing peanuts, I have very little motivation to actually come and swat those pesky flies away for you.
A flank collapse takes time and is quite obvious if you look at the minimap. Use your engine. Move away from the collapsing flank.
"But we're so slow, we can't run away from destroyers! We're the two slowest ships in the game!"
All the more reason to pay attention and start moving early, before the flank collapses.
