    my computer craps out right as I enter a match, and NOW...

    I am 6'6" and over 300lbs. I don't wear a tutu. I wear a two-two-by-four-four!

    I will say that when I am in my Shimakaze with the sea mines (20km range good, 62km speed meh, can be spotted from space, bad) I shoot my first salvos either as a spread of where I think the enemy will be headed, or if someone is not using the WASD hack and merrily sails in a straight line for me. Otherwise, in THAT ship, it would be impossible for me to fire them off 30 seconds into a match. If I could? whoo BOY what a reload booster THAT would be.

    It's not that. It's just. I don't like being perceived as a poor sport. I put my team at a 1 Battleship disadvantage. I was a top tier ship (Bismarck) in a tier 8 match, and me being afk probably cost those other folks that match. And through no fault of my own (but my equipment's failure IS my failure, so I reckon I will just own it)... I am pink and I work VERY hard to not bump other players or shoot other players and I sure as hell try to be VERY careful with my torpedoes. Just... Not how I wanted those folks to see me OR my clan tag is all... ~B

    pink for 3 matches. dammit...
  7. I am pink for "inactivity or leaving a battle early." I was far from inactive. I was working my butt off to try and get into the match. But I had to do a damn cold restart of my computer and by the time I got back in the match was over. I am SO pissed right now. ~Beorn (the very angry) EDITED TO ADD AS EXPLANATION***-

    Absolute WORST super-container opening?

    And, as if WG wanted to both troll me AND allegedly "help" me (I am collecting coal to get the Salem), I was working on my crates this morning, and first one, SUPER-CONTAINER! You GOTTA be kidding me! No coal!?!? Okay, fine. Keep playing. Get my second one. AND ANOTHER SUPER-CONTAINER! Aw for #%$^&@ SAKE!!! Again with the no coal?!?!? Well played Wargaming. I complain about lame super-containers, you respond with 2 MORE not-quite-as-lame super containers... Can I just PLEASE get back to getting coal please? ~Beorn (the desirous of a Salem)

    Coupon off "selected" WoWS packages... but...

    Yeah, why are SOME barebones premium ships available, and others not? It makes NO sense! ~B

    Coupon off "selected" WoWS packages... but...

    Thanks Radar_X. I mean, hey, it ain't like I don't buy things... But, I HAVE almost all of the ships already, so... I sort of need to know if there is something I can actually USE the coupon for. Much obliged! ~B
  11. They don't TELL you which they are. The coupon says: "20% OFF SELECTED WOWS PACKAGES Enjoy an exclusive 20% discount on a vast selection of World of Warships packages - valid for 7 days." Vast selection... Well, I cruised through the website and I didn't scan one. So, what gives? If y'all want my hard earned old guy money, you should at the very LEAST let me know which things work for which. ~B

    Absolute WORST super-container opening?

    Hey gang! It's your ol' pal Beorn here... So, I just finished the 4th set of missions for Yamamoto Isoroku, and you get 2 Super Containers for it. 1st super container: 100 November Echo Setteseven signals... 2nd super container: 100 Juliet Charlie signals... On the one hand, free signals... But on the other hand... "super" containers? <sigh> ~B

    Mystified a bit about Karma points

    I try to do that, for both my team and the enemy. BUT, as we all know, we are limited to 5-6 a day. And, I will also ding people who are extremely rude in chat or racist, homophobic, or misogynistic. Beorn may be an old cripple recovering from a hip replacement, but I don't play that foolishness. And, that being said, I have received NOTHING BUT AMAZING THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS after my hip replacement. I had complications due to the spinal tap anesthesia, and it got dicey for a bit. Being able to come home and play my "World of ..." games and chat with all the good folks; this has been as good for my healing process as my physical rehab I think. Once again, the Commanders of Warships are, almost to a person, exemplary individuals who love naval warfare and team-play. Tanks is less so, but even THEY have been stepping it up during their Halloween event. You all take care, and thank you all again for your kind words and healing vibes! ~Beorn of the Northern Sea, now with added titanium!

    I JUST cannot win... <sigh>

    close range cruisers... So, you mean like this? https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/171956-a-loss-i-can-be-proud-of/ My Minotaur is one of my favorite ships of all time. And I believe that qualifies. Or would you that I remove the smoke and have hydro and radar? ~B
