Regale us.

 

Shout-out to 321bar for a nice job helping my ATL carry a T7-9 match in his Hiryu. Another to chrrch and Fog_Cruiser_Ranger for a good Saturday run.

 

My highlights:

Most BBs I ever seen in one match:

Somehow I ended up the unicum BB!

Hauling in the prizes in Amagi:

Weird. CA main unicums in the BB during BB weekend. Oh well.

 

Had a good laugh with my div mates when I Detonated a Cleveland in Iron Duke. Finally, completed the first-to-spot enemy ships CV-only mission in Haku and helped my team decisively win vs. an AS Midway.

I got 5 citadels in one volley this weekend. I was in a Kirov vs a Kuma. 

Other than that, just grinding.

I kept up my 2k avg experience for my Z-23, other than that, I was credit farming with my Kutuzov.

Had some good games in Kii, New Mexico and Missouri. Got accused of using something called "war pack" in my NM by a Warspite I beat with a sliver of health left. I'm not sure why he thought I was cheating. I even aimed too low when he was bow-on and bounced almost a full salvo off his bow because I'm stupid. It's like if two boxers have it out, one wins but he's bloody and barely able to stand, and the loser says he cheated. What the heck is that logic?

Moved up to the Colorado on the USN BB tree. Good god she's slow... utterly painful. 

The highlight of my weekend though was sinking a Tirpitz with Kii's torpedoes. Beautiful. :cap_like:

Had a really good weekend working through Roon and FDG.

 

I wasn't much of a Roon fan in the early going, but 20+ matches in and I realize now how great of a ship she is.  Those who claim she needs buffs are doing it wrong.

 

Doing pretty decent with FDG, but those 8 guns seem somewhat underwhelming at T9.  Her upgrade over Bismarck feels marginal at best.  Still, not a bad ship in any way.

I had this happen.

 

 

I also got my super containers from Yamamoto Mission 4. Just have the first 3 tasks to complete to round out the mission.

I spent the weekend grinding my Anshan captain in the mission battles. Oh my god that ship is fun. And those Stalinium rounds. I had one battle where I racked up 31 citadels. In a destroyer. Sure, it's against bots but still.

 

I also finally re-specced my Khab for heals (yeah, I'm an idiot) and tried that out. Had a decent 2-kill, 100k damage game and got a couple of karma bumps from the players there, so that was gratifying. 

 

Also took the Shiratsuyu out for a spin as I've decided I want an Akatsuki. I'm getting used to the lack of smoke (translation: I'm playing like a cowardly bunny) and it's paying off. Last 3 games have been decent wins.

It's been a Bismarck grind kind of weekend. Only ~16k away from FdG. I was in Bismarck to complete Yamamoto mission 4, which yielded 1000 doubloons and a Belfast as the prizes. Really good mood that put me in.

I think I had 3 or 4 BB battles all weekend.  The rest were Algerie and Roon with a single Atago battle mixed in.  Grinding up the French and German cruiser lines.

I had two projects over the weekend: to play a decent Moskva game (I'm 8 games into the ship, and have had my share of derpy "OMG this thing turns like a brick," "spotted?...of course I'm spotted, I'm in a f___ing Moskva," and "how much can I bow tank?...yeah, maybe not THAT much" moments so far), and to rediscover some modicum of ability to play destroyers (Gaede, Akatsuki, Benson) after a lot of cruiser play the last few months.  The first eventually happened, the second was off and on--some bright spots, some four digit early exits.

 

The worst was a three-cap domination game when I was on a three DD team in Akatsuki against four DDs on the other team, something like Fletcher, Z-46, Lo Yang, and Maass, with the last two in a division along with a Takao.  I ended up going to the cap with the Z-46, retreating, and then going back and getting rekt when, unsurprisingly, our team was unable to take any of the other caps either.  Let's see, he outspots me, outguns me, has hydro, and we desperately need a cap--how exactly do I play this one? (Answer: badly.)

I farmed about 150k in free xp, and won about 80% of all games I played.

Fri and Sat were okay, but lots of poor RNG made things really, REALLY frustrating.

Sunday on the other hand...  I couldn't hardly MISS!  Citadels abounded, 100k games were the rule, mega xp and credits gained!   I think RNGesus took pity on me yesterday, as I had a hell of a good time grinding my Nor-Cal. 

  I literally changed nothing.   Salvos that missed embarrassingly the last week or so suddenly started hammering home with a vengeance!  It was literally like someone had swapped out the gun turrets on the ship overnight.   Also, the Bots' hive brain decided to troll someone else yesterday, and I got left alone much of the time.   Whatever- it added up to a great day of playing.  I earned my 16th cptn point and added AFT to my Nor-Cal captain- "Planes? What planes??"

  Okay- I fibbed a little there:  Since I wasn't the focus of every bot from the word go each game, I was quite often able to GET to that flanking position that works so well for the US fast BB's.  With the expected results.    Blowing a tier 10 German BB to hell with my Nor-Cal was just icing on the cake.

  Also, thanks to WG for the BB weekend!  Those XP and credit rewards came in very handy- I took a HUGE chunk out of the needed xp to get to Iowa (down to less than 17k needed!), and my credit pool saw a nice boost, too.

  After a day like that, I'm almost afraid to play today, lol!
