....Close Quarters Expert was something to be proud of and not something you earned while shaking the Cheetos crumbs off your shirt?

To me, CQE was always earned for teh lulz, and still to this day, it doesn't disappoint.

I earn that award a lot and usually it's because I am having to engage multiple targets at once. :)

My first Close Quarters medal was A Long time ago. Was doing battle with a Destroyer and a Cruiser with my Cleveland, when me secondaries sank a low hp Carrier. Was so surprised and amazed that I got that medal. 

But now I own several premium Battleships who can collect CQE medals, heck I've gotten them with several cruisers. 

One day I'll achieve the Ultimate CQE medal which is done with a Kiev. 

 

LoL just remembered the Carrier Sunday that got a CQE off a low hp Hatsu with its secondaries.

The last time I was proud of earning one was the time I got it with Texas.  That meant so much more than earning it in ships labeled "Made in German."

Before I got my Sharnhorst, most secondary kills were from my Cleveland.  Best one that I remember was my secondaries killed a low HP Atlanta while I was pasting 2 capping Japanese DDs.:izmena:

 

Lots of fun. :)

Now if only the USN secondaries had their historic rate of fire. Cleveland/Baltimore would be fun little DD hunters.

 

I also remember when Clear Skies was possible to achieve.

If I get it with something German, it's not worth anything. If I get it with anything not German (especially with a CV), then it's meaningful, even if it still just is RNG.

You can still go for the thrill by trying to earn CQE in Kiev.

Well... I detonated a Minekaze with Hiryuu secondaries.

 

That something to be proud of?

 

Oh, wait, no detonation kill is something to be proud of.
