Greetings to all who read this; I hope you've had a good day and had some happy hunting on the high seas! I started four or five days ago, and I'm genuinely curious as to whether this score is good or not considering the fact that I'm rather new. Can you help me?

78k in a Kongo is quite good, especially for a newer player.

I actually got the two citadels from 10 KM away. I couldn't believe it; Kongo tends to miss from what I've seen.

It's above average for the average player.  The only thing that's particularly special is that you got a close quarters expert medal, which isn't entirely easy to do in the Kongo.

Way better than I've ever got in a Kongo. But that isn't saying much since I've never captained a Kongo. That is really a great score for someone just starting out.

I got Kongo yesterday or the day before, then got the second hull today. The transition from brawling to fighting at long distance and then brawling was... Pretty damn jarring, to say the least.

The forum only allows pictures/links from a few, approved sites. The easiest site to use - imho - is tiny pic. Just go here. Follow the instructions - it's like two maybe three steps. Then use the link it provides in your "image" post option and you're done.

 

Most folks tuck their image inside a spoiler (think html div). 

 

And yes, that's pretty good Kongo score. She is an excellent ship. Keep it up and you'll go far.

Ah, thank you for the advice and compliments! After this fight I can definitely see why people have a burning love for this ship; after the hull upgrade it's extremely fun to play. I don't think I'm ever gonna sell her.

Ah Kongo, used to be my favorite mid-tier battleship but sadly the matchmaking rework makes it see Tier VIIs all the time.

 

NIce job man!

That is quite a good result, especially for someone as new as you. Well done, and keep it up.

Nah, I'm busy at Tier VII farming poor Tier V seals.

 

Just kidding, I would love to.  Send me a message in-game whenever.

You did significantly more damage than the server average for a tier 5 battleship for that game, possibly double the server average. I see you are able to hit citadels, I had severe difficulty hitting anything not broadside at tier 5 myself so keep up the good work!

Unless you're suicidal like me; and use Kongou as a battering ram/brute force weapon when the opportunity presents itself (esp. vs those DDs that dropped torps then dropped smoke and thought they could hide as I supposedly ran away).

Oh my Kongo is secondary specced alright and I try to brawl when the opportunity presents itself, but if I played 5 rounds in it today looking to get that close quarters expert medal, I'd probably wouldn't get it, despite having experienced 185 battles with the Kongo.  It's tricky to get those tier 5 secondaries to deal the killing blow.

Fair enough.

 

As far as my Kongous are concerned, every one of their CQC medals were from DDs either attempting to camp smoke or attempting a suicide run (that moment when you tank all the torps to the exact same area and don't take any further damage due to saturation).
