I am a very average player. I entered the contest over the weekend for a chance at the camouflage.
I have an epic battle in my Lightning to get the last of the 7 achievements needed for Exeter. The rest of the elements of that marathon were best run in Co-op for me, so there I went without another thought.
Getting the damage wasn't too bad, but getting the third kill for the penultimate element turned out to be a chore and took me a couple days.
It also took me a couple days to accumulate the 20 citadels needed to complete the marathon. I did that tonight.
This is when I got confused. I added the ship to my notes. I updated my captains list. Then I was summarizing my status. That was when I found that I had an extra Port Slot that I could not account for. Looking through my notices, I found the addition of the Slot, a Captain, and 9,600 doubloons. (I hadn't noticed the extra there as I had not expected it to change, so I did not look.)
Apparently, that epic battle was in the Top 10 of participants in Tier 8 DDs.
