    First time passing 300k damage

    Huge battle, well done. And you even managed a win from that effort too!! I’ve not even come close to breaking 300k!!

    Why didn't I complete this mission?

    It’s ok, others have worked out what the issue was and helped the OP already. Even managed to do it without a reference to power creep.

    QE Finds a Ranger

    Really not sure why the CV didn’t get rolling as soon as A was capped and he ran out of team on that side of that map. Or at least once you started engaging the beaching Kongo, given you were spotted and moving to the edge of the carriers detection range. CV earnt being killed.

    Potential Damage Calculation

    Hmm. I thought it was anything that landed within 700 metres of your ship, aimed or not. @Midshipman_Hornblower, getting shot at by battleships is the best way to accumulate PD, as long as you can. Dodging torp walls are great too. Ramming, even if it did count and I think it does not, wouldn’t add very much - a 70k HP battleship would only be one broadside, or even less, worth of PD. Good luck in your efforts though!

    What are the odds....

    Most of that is meaningless, you realise that right? Someone could have played 1 ranked battle and this count for your exercise, or someone could have ranked out. I tried ranking out but couldn’t even in an OP ship - so players even at high ranks can be awful. Yes, it’s odd that the numbers are so out, but you would expect the enemy to have more ranked players on average precisely because you haven’t played ranked so your team is always -1.

    I can't believe it

    Hi. Welcome to WoWS. I think others have answered your hardware questions. And you shouldnt sell premium ships in case you get them back again through random drops - there is nothing more deeply frustrating. Still, you might be interested in my Premium Ship for New Players guide, which talks about how premium ships generate value, and which premium ships are good for new players (both easier to play and represent good value). In addition, I have copied some information below that you might find useful as a new player. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask. If you'd like to division, feel free to send me a message in-game and if we're both online at the same time, then I'd be happy to oblige.

You are under absolutely no obligation to spend money on this game - it is entirely free to play including at high tiers.

The second post in this thread has some good advice on how to rapidly become a better player through teamwork and positioning - see Section 3 - its worth a read!

    Worst teams EVER

    Skynet has taken note of your tone and has selected an appropriate punishment. It continues to bide its time...

    Weekend Spree, June 12-14 2020

    Well done on your achievements. I tried ranking out this weekend. Instead, I got balanced. 22 battles later I am still at R4 with 1 star - made zero net progress. Highest I got was R4 with 3 stars. So I’ve run out of time. And patience. Obviously I’m a rubbish player given I can’t rank out in a Belfast.

    Damage Disparity

    Hi, welcome to WoWS. I think the posters above me, particularly Lert and Kenjister, have directly answered your questions quite well. Still, you may be interested in some of the guides I have pasted below. Also, I would be happy to division up with you in-game if you would like help with the Gneisenau, as it’s one of my favourite ships in the game. Good luck!

    Tankiest cruiser tree?

    German and USN heavy cruiser lines are fairly tanky for cruisers from about T7 and above. The French cruisers have spaced armour that can make them surprisingly resilient even at low tiers like T3. But really, there isnt such a thing as a tanky cruiser - driving them like a battleship will get you killed. Have a look at my Ship Role Quick Reference Guide for some other suggestions. Good luck!

    Spinning wheel of death...

    I'm sorry, if they made a port screen that takes 22 minutes to load on a decent computer - at least, sufficient to run the game - then they're doing it wrong...

    Spinning wheel of death...

    Not sure I want to find out, tbh. I might run a WG Check over MOO before loading it up... tomorrow...

    Get a Load of This

    These are clever and well done, @SeaKnight_1990, but I think you're missing an opportunity for when Hitler refers to Stalin to complain about Soviet bias, along the lines of 'and their shells are guided by the hand of Stalin!!' and line it up right :).
