Just had a personal 'oh crap' moment happen to me: 

The Moment where my game crashed  and I was in front of a moskva, in an IJN DD no less. 

 

Needless to say by time I had gotten back in I was dead. 

 

What's a few of your 'oh crap' moments captains?

Whenever I sail a little too close to enemy battleships and have to give broadside to turn away.

Pushing a side in Hood, dueling an enemy battleship in binoculars, then zooming out and seeing that my other teammates are dead, or have retreated, and I'm now alone on that side of the map...

I sailed around a corner in my Harekaze and an Edinburge and a a Cleveland were sitting there, less than 2.5km away, waiting for me... I shat myself and then killed the Edin with a torp spread and chased off the Cleveland after hitting him with a single torp... and lost 90% of my hp for the trouble... =w=

When I'm pushing a base in my BB blazing away with my guns to realize too late that my team left me to fight a third of the team alone. But that's alright because that just means more glory for me. Live fast, die young. VALHALLA AWAITS!!!:fish_viking::cap_viking::Smile_izmena:

At that point it's ramming speed for me. Especially if they're a couple tiers higher. I'll gladly take them to Hell with me.

I should probably do that as well. It would be more exciting at least.

When I forget to swap back my ship loadout from KoTS back to randoms.

That feeling when you have AFT instead of SE on DM

When you're minding your own business in a BB and and enemy DD gets spotted at 5.7km off to your bow with engine boost on charging you and your main guns won't be loaded in the next 20 seconds.

Context: The first few minutes of a match, spotted by an unseen destroyer and realized I moved a bit too close to the caps with none of the main enemy ships spotted yet.

My most recent one was a game I had a week or so ago.  I'd gone to D on North in my Perth in a T8 game  The enemy had push through C south to north, taken it and an NC tried to push the little channel into D.  I shanked him with single shot torps and was feeling pretty good about myself.  I thought that the south side was going to be clear.  I was wrong.  I sailed south along the coast, hoping to get around their flank, and a Fiji lit up at 4km like a christmas tree coming around the end of the island.  Torps were still down from the NC.

I had about zero interest in getting into a point blank knife fight with a Fiji while using a Perth with no torps.  The pucker factor was pretty high.  I mananged to get enough angle to survive the fight and ended up 3 salvoing him since he gave me nice, flat broadsides to shoot at but when he lit up at that close of range, my butt definitely clinched.

One time my game crashed while playing the ARP Kongo. When I return I find myself bow tanking 5 people on the enemy team. Still managed to survive the battle. :cap_cool:

 

Another time its the end of the game, my Perth only has 100hp, I've just came out of using my repair after ramming an enemy DD, my team is leading in points and its a 2v2. Perth & Perth vs Kongo & Ryujo. I'm broadside to the Kongo against landmass. The carrier is about to send their planes near me, but thanks to the other Perth getting closer and engaging the Kongo, i'm spared and we won the game.

LOL...Ya try that in a DD, Your BB might make it 3 whole minutes and maybe score a kill, I'm lucky to make 30 seconds with " No battle contribution":Smile_facepalm:

  Patting yourself on the back while in a BB for just barely WASD hacking an enemy's 8 torp spead...and then seeing your idiot DD's 8 torp spread heading full speed straight for your broadside. :cap_old:
