Welp, that's something you don't see every day... (double Midway Kraken?!?)

I left the CV's names visible in the screenshot as I don't believe this qualifies as name-and-shame when I'm complimenting both players... But how often do you see a game where both CVs kraken, much less a pair of Midways?

Very good and hard-fought game by both sides, which is a rarity on its own...its not like either team rolled over and let the CVs duke it out, the CVs just both played very well (red CV played me brilliantly...holding one torp squadron just out of my AA range while the other squad torped me, then hitting me with the second literally one second after my repair finished, so I flooded out. :cap_fainting: )

Knew this one was getting screenshotted for forums before game even ended. :D

 Its an equivalent of getting a royal flush in poker, this things are possible however rare as hell. One in a life time match, I think the red CV player was carrying for his team. IF he had more time he probably would have carried for the win. Valiant effort  by both.  Congrats

Goes to show, that actually learning how to play, is still a viable strategy :Smile_teethhappy:  GG to all

To the OP: Did you compliment both CV cap'ns?

It was quite common back when Strafing wasn't a thing and USN CVs were dominating in all tiers (iChased for example farmed his win rate by playing more than 70% of his games in USN CVs). In the sense of CV balance, the Strafing implementation is pretty good, overall.

Damn straight I did.

 

I always compliment good CV players to counteract the people who rage at and report them.

First time I've seen two Midways Kraken in same game in 13k games including about 2k t10 games. We must have vastly different gaming experiences.

I see two very low XP players on the red team. That was probably the difference right there.

Would that be two DD's that got nuked early trying to cap?

What!? You got a game where both CVs were evenly matched? I call hax!
