Gonna be later, use what's left of my premium time from Shipsgiving mission to farm XP on Biz and Takao captains, and maybe a bit more ship XP in Kiev. Anyway:

 

Usual drove of some potato teams, carrying as usual is royal pain. Did have some good matches where I placed in top 5 and/or did 80k+ damage in my ARP kongoes.

 

High-tier divs seem to be only motivation now for running Taiho. Two matches, with both of them losses, but enemy team both times was probably relieved they won. First match I sank two of them, with another 2 badly damaged for a total of some 140K. Second match we lost because caps did not get contested early enough and my teammates spread out too much for me to cover with my fighters (apparently randoms are generally too stupid to realize enabling their CV to pull strafes on bombers is the best AA they can get), but at least I pulled my ship's HP more than 3x over that match and set a new personal best:

fLR5YfQ.pngReally people, learn how to free up your CV's fighters. Gamble, yes, but if he's competent he'll be strafing the bombers in return for focusing AA on the enemy fighters. Short of a dedicated AA ship, that's the most reliable way of knocking down bombers. Especially at high tiers w/ the limited fighter ammo and hangar reserves, make it possible for the CV to spend it strafing bombers or enjoy being smashed by the bombers.

 

Kiev needs a bit more XP for the hull upgrade, and she's not particularly nimble, but blazes a nice trail. Pretty nice to have a DD that can mimic cruisers' nasty AP when BBs foolishly broadside. Caught several BBs including a CO broadside and repeatedly knocked off 2-4K a volley. A NC ignores me for like 15 seconds and this happens :D

Lol moment--weakened the above CO low enough that a teammate's torp finished him off. Typed "BB, meet AP." Chased another BB same match despite being spotted, he drops me with HE and says "DD, meet HE."

 

Another lol moment, this in Danae: figured out Langley's location from his planes' direction, catch him, but I mess up my torps cause didn't realize he was moving forward, and I ram him! He got Die-Hard, but another spectating player observed he had only 29HP left after that and the flood DoT wiped him before he could repair!

 

Div'd with Buttkicker and another of his friends for a couple matches before bed. I run in Takao, both matches are losses, but satisfied I understand how to Takao. First match I go down, but not before nearly 120K damage (about 3x my ship's HP in damage). Second I survived; Fiji I dueled from 14km away in AP-only decides to risk his ship, and I finished him off, and near end of 2nd match a Mutsuki charges me, but I torpedobeat, fire my own torps to force his retreat not to try any dodges, and pocket him--did say that was a nice try.

The Potato Ben hit Thursday and didn't let up all weekend. 

But I got a Free Port Slot from a Try Your Luck container which was nice.

Got a Ibuki, Fubuki, Anshan a Solo warrior and a 15 point Cpt. It was a good weekend. I wish WG would extend this Takao mission, 100k free exp is a lot.

My 2 buddies and myself played together this weekend and we had probably some of the worst battles in months, at one point had a 13 game losing streak. Late last night we jumped ship and headed to WoT, games w ere a little more bearable.

Been pretty poor.  Just played 3 matches in my Scharnhorst and all 3 defeats, getting about 65k dmg/game.

 

Weekend was just as bad.

Ground through the last bits of Izumo and Bismarck to pick up Hotel and Big Fred on discount. Epic losing streak on the Izumo though but trading her in for Yamato was very satisfying

Friday and Saturday I was lucky, got my 3 million credits grinding in BBs, DDs, and CA/CLs, with a 60%+ win rate. At the price they were selling it it made sense for me to go Premium for a year. Then I started to grind Fiji toward Edinburgh on Sunday. Result? Might as well have stayed in bed at 30% win rate. Started the weekend at 47 million credits and ended it at 58 and change. That's the way it goes most long weekends on the NA server. Finally quit early and watched the Vanier Cup and Grey Cup games instead!

Decent enough weekend, despite the usual potato harvest.  At least I had a few games where I was on the good side of them - seems like they were roughly equal to the number of games where I killed a couple of reds in my general area and looked up to find I was the only green left alive 8 minutes into the match. :/

Finished the Takao grind, and also finished off Königsberg finally.  I know lots of players like that ship, but I've had horrid luck in it, so glad to see that one over with.  I will say that the last match in her was nice - 3 kills, close to 100K damage dealt.  I always seem to have a good game to close out ships.  Haven't bought Nurnberg yet, hoping a Tier VI discount is around the corner.

Unlocked and purchased a New Orleans on sale.  I'm hoping for upgrade module discounts sometime soon...maybe even this week.  Gameplay wise, it was middle of the road.  Certainly some bad teams (if you're in a carrier, could you not be AFK, pretty please?), but I also spent the last ten minutes of one game watching two friendly destroyers pull out a match we had no business winning, so can't complain.

Too gullible. Some of the anime girl wallpapers I admire from time to time like this one:

kKB0lfq.jpg

Seem to require sifting through the entire content, so I don't even notice the hentai images. Last one was kind of wasted effort, only two images from 76 or so total pages, from approx. 3000 results.

 

Would offer the entire collection, but doubtful WG would allow that here, since it's not WOWS save for Arpeggio, Haifui, and other WW2-themed anime.

Nothing wrong with that, I'm just teasing.

Respectable 2-day figures (See below) on an otherwise complicated holiday weekend.

 

Iowa grind feels like forever, as does the FuSlow and my Pensacola scraped out a win but that grind seems eternal as well. Surprisingly enough, my King Albert took a rare beating all weekend - don't think I scraped out a single victory in it (one can only carry so hard when facing a small armada of Destroyers).

Yeah, you'd think folks would hide their anime porn searches before posting screen caps.

My average damage is climbing steadily.

My average experience is climbing steadily.

My WTR rating is steadily climbing.

My win rate is plunging like a stone.

I had a decent weekend. I learned how to play carriers so that I could get the Shipsgiving bonus. While I completed the event, after 16 games, I just turned it off... useless premium time (sigh). 

 

Anyway, I got to above 110 million silver. I bought two new ships. I could buy eight or so new ships, but then I'd be getting into the higher tiers and I just like playing 4-7. With a few super containers, my free XP topped 200,000. Still can't decide to use it or not. 


Win rate out of the 16 games was 81%, way higher than my average. It's been trending up, but it's only about 53%.

All in all, a decent weekend.

Overall it was a pretty good weekend. Friday was dismal but Saturday and Sunday made up for it.

 

I got Confederate and High Caliber in my first ever Brit cruiser game and held off 4 of those dastardly reds on our cap so my team mates could cap theirs. Black Swan ROCKS! :child:

Got a Kraken in Arizona on a ram with 7 secs left. :izmena:

 

Had a humorous moment in New Mexico where a Fiji and I popped around an island at about the same time. He All chatted, "Uh Oh. I'm dead.". I let loose a broadside from about 5km and he was indeed. :red_button:

Brawled a Kaiser in Wyoming and got torped by my own CV. :facepalm:

 

Oh yeah...I almost forgot. I pulled a SuperContainer with 100K Free XP. :great:
