My best (recent) memory was of taking out an enemy CV in one salvo during a battle - from a distance of 20km while driving Fuso.  He made the mistake of hiding behind an island, thinking he was safe.

Early on when I still played PVP I came around an island thinking I would find a BB hiding but instead there was two and they were not paying attention.  I was in my Clemson so I sailed right between them firing off torps from both sides.   It was a beautiful thing.

I haven't actually gotten any of the anniversary goods so I don't feel like I can comment.

 

No missions, no containers, nothing appears in my client.

My favorite World of Warships memory was the first time I played it at PAX. Getting into the small booth with only 4 machines and thinking "Well I can't as bad at it as I am with World of Tanks". Turns out my first time playing I was. Though getting the shirt saying "Warships Happens" was great. My hope for the next year is for adding of other nation's fleets and adding more branches on the current existing trees.

Mine is from my best match, right before fubuki got moved to t6.  fubuki was my favorite DD at the time and great way to end its career.      this was great match filled with good players on both teams.    the map was tear of cruisers and was epicenter .         hard fought match  where our team managed to control the center early by defeating red team's DDs, followed by strong push from red team  to win it.  They almost succeeded.    There was  lot of strong play by players on both team and very memorable for me.   too bad the replay got lost when wowsreplay got taken offline.  (not that we could play it back)

 Happy birthday WG!  Still love the game. 

 

Other than the NEW sale anniversary box stuff, I'm not seeing any price drops especially on all regular items. The same price as always for everything.   I spent quite a lot of money on this game and been here from the start. So wish they'd offer some better bargains instead of earning rewards through copious play.  When the "percentage off specials" are always the same, it's not a special!  Example: All Bonus Flags, -26% forever, still $14.99    

Won't buy them for $20, and won't buy them for $15. 

 It feels like a constant state of manipulation. But you can play for FREE!

 

Oh I forgot, it's THEIR birthday. I should be spending more, not less :Smile_great:

 

 Seriously, happy birthday WG

I used to try to chase down carriers in a St Louis. There it's out in the open now and I feel better. Sort of.

My most vivid memory is seeing a commercial for a new game called "World of Warships" on the TV (Maybe during the Super Bowl?).  Being a huge Naval buff, I was extremely interested and excited, however at the time, I didn't think my PC could run the game, so I did nothing.  A few months later, I decided to try the game, which ended up working perfectly on my PC.  I've been a WoWs addict ever since.  

 

Thanks WG!  Happy Birthday and keep up the good work! :Smile_honoring:

Back when it was just USN vs IJN.  Torpedo rushed two BBs in close proximity to each other.  While driving the Clemson in a straight line right between them, I blasted one BB with all six port torpedoes then immediately blasted the other with all starboard torpedoes.  Sunk both and survived the match to tell the tale.  Felt [edited] awesome.

 

I'll never forget it.

Broke 200k with Strike Ranger. That was my best game ever.

 

Aside from that, I think the Montana battle where I citted a GK through the bow was pretty good. What was funnier was that I immediately did it again afterwards.

My fondest memory was when 2 of my friends introduced me to this game in October 2015 and they started me in co-op ( I did not know what co-op was) and I was wondering why I kept seeing those same names over and over again on the red team =)

My greatest memory was an interesting one. 

 

Last ranked season, I  was in my Myoko on Ice Islands. My team wasn't doing well, so I decided to flank North-East and try to attack an enemy DD. I kill him, and return to the fleet.

Anyhoo, about 5 minutes later, I launch torpedoes at another enemy Myoko. (I had 3 kills at this point.) I was feeling pretty good about my points, and carrying the team. A few seconds later, I hear a boom and realize that I took out our Mahan. Apparently, he had set up a smoke screen right after I had launched my torps. *Sigh*

I lose one kill. I'm down to 2 kills. Maybe 4 minutes later, I see another enemy, this time a Colorado. (I was playing Ranked Battles) I launch torps again. 

 

 

LITERALLY 30 SECONDS LATER:

"You've killed a friendly!" 

WHAAAAATTT?????? :cap_fainting:

I'm down to 1 kill! ONE KILL! On ranked battles! I just doomed my team to die!

 

I even announced to my team when I was launching them and what direction.

 

Needless to say, my team was a good one. They didn't got mad, and instead thanked me for carrying the game. o7 guys. :Smile_medal:

 

 

Now, for a short paragraph?

 

I loved love trolling enemy CVs in my DDs by blocking the enemy from hitting me. :Smile_teethhappy: I also trolled them in chat, like:

Hey there! I don't want to hurt you. I even got in a Youtube vid once for that.
