    Funniest usernames that you've come across?

    Yah, I saw @Boner_of_Steel today....a little sophomoric, but again, it works.

    Ship that Tip! - 8th - 15th

    T3 Campbeltown This has been one of my favorite boats for a while, mainly because her torpedo range of 7.5km is excellent at tier--and because the detect with CE is only 5.8km; if you're careful, that can be used to victimize the big dogs that can't tell your stalking them. Its torpedo suite has a seeming drawback: Three tubes on each side that can't be aimed both to port and starboard. IIRC, this even led to LWM's review on the C-town being a "Meh-bote". But there's an easy work around--I move up toward the target until dropping on one side while turning away, then keep turning and bring the other side to bear from astern....If you time it right you'll peel off with them at about 6km to get close enough to hit more reliably, and still stay hidden. It can be great fun--and the ship's available for minimum coal so imo, every DD player should have one.

    Ranked Sprint

    Hear hear!!....I still miss having it in the mid-tier fights that were so fun when I started out. It's the purest map and creates the most pitiless results, even when/if I couldn't hack it....taught me what little I know about playing DD in open water. ....Yah when I clicked on "Discuss in Forums" and saw there were already 38 comments in this thread I assumed 37 would be whining little maggots....Sure enough, I was wrong....A few people are actually trying to patiently explain this stuff. ....I'm not an apologist for WG at all, but I do know they are so friggin' generous to us except for the hours we spend (if we insist) that it's almost a crime.... ....The wisest thing I've heard said about this game was "It's free to play, and you can quit any time." ....Why didn't I think of that?

    Check me on that....Their 13th.... IKR. As an arch feminist, I can always appreciate some good ole fashioned woman-empowering bikini-clad chichis....bravissimo!

    Because it's fun, right?

    Same here....pretty much all they do is screw up your aim....I can score hits at top range sometimes, but usually not....And I don't stay that far away from the reds after the first minutes of the match, like a good BB driver.
