Well, RIP my chances of getting first but maybe I can clutch a Tachibana (in doubloons since I have one already)

...welp, there go my dreams. :hiding:

Unless maybe I work my way up to Minekaze and suddenly become amazing at DDs. (...yeah, no.)


If you happen to catch me online, feel free to hit me up for a division. Currently, I have at least one ship of every tier except 9.

The MM plays a huge role, then you have to capitalize. Reds score will be tough to follow but there is a second place and you never know the stars could align:)

Right now, I have second place...XD Somewhat by default as there's only the two scores so far (I edited in an actual submission into my first post, in case you hadn't noticed), but hey.

Still going to keep trying for first place - Scharnhorst is something I'd buy for myself if I could, but I don't have the funds available right now and probably won't before the sale ends, so very much want - but I haven't had a damage total period that matches Red's score up until now (highest damage done in one battle: 125,799), so that kind of ridiculous number is a bit disheartening. There's always the hope of another contest with a Scharnhorst prize, though.

 

Come to think of it, when you say "Campbeltown or equivalent in doubloons," do you mean "your choice of Campbeltown or Doubloons", or is it "Campbeltown, or Doubloons if you already have it"?

I will give anybody Doubloons over a prize if they prefer it, some people may not want a low tier prem and if you sell it all you get is Creds. Or I can gift the equivalent in Doubs and players can save them up and buy something they want, like the Atago:). If a player already owns the gifted prem they get Doubloons. Makes no difference to me one way or the other, but If i could only have one premium in game it would be Atlanta or Atago and you can save up for those with Doubs.

I'm going to brainstorm and come up with a way that will even the playing field, wanted to do a T1 AP contest for this but WG nerfed the Hermelin:(, regardless it is still a game and rewarding skill and performance is as good a metric that exists. Scharn will come up for sale again if you miss out on her this time, or WG will release some other awesome new ship.

 

Make sure you post a score though, I won't be posting mine for obvious reasons but I rarely put up a number like Red did even when Im trying to kill any red ship on the map:D.

I think the new HE should still work though, because everything is nerfed it would be even harder to get high damage counts in low tier games :)

I would have had a better score if the first Kaiser I saw hadn't used WASD hax to dodge my wave of torps into him. But the joke was on him, he WASD right into another wave of torps from a friendly destroyer.

I'd like to think I played a small part in this, if even only minuscule :) . Its like a perfect storm, offer a cool ship and have about 10000 BBs in the que:D

I think if/when I do this again Im going to let players submit three, maybe five scores and then take an average. Make rewards based off of a either avg base exp or damage over a set amount of games.
