My First 300k Game - And Then I Did It Again

So, after more than 6,000 battles I've never broken the magical 300k damage in a game mark.  And now I've done it on consecutive days.  First time was in space battle.  I was in the Paris.  I didn't really count this match because it was a space battle.  I got my Republique and in my 3rd match, 300k broken again.  On Ocean, the most magnificent of maps.  Here's some screens of both matches.  Yes, this is a brag thread.  If you have a problem with that, neener, neener, I don't care.  :cap_rambo::cap_rambo:

Very nice.

Only broke 200k twice, in Warspite and Musashi. 200k will likely forever be a barrier for me.

Interesting. I am on the cusp of getting either the Republique or Montana. Inclined towards the former as my spouse is French... vive la France!

Well played. 

 

I'm loving the Republique but I am struggling to get over 150k with her because games either have 5 DDs a side, or they end too quickly in a steam roll.

NICE! I do find it interesting that you did it in pretty much the same ship... I've yet to crack 200k. Crongrates man!

I’m interested to know if many of your citadels were at long range, as I kinda feel like the republique has better than expected rng for long range citadels, ie. greater than 14k

These are a big part of hitting the 300k and it’s hard to rack this up all at close range which is the niche the Republique is tending to be cast in but I’m thinking it has more versatility than given credit for

I have both and would say that the Montana feels more consistent and would recommend the Montana

That's the thing.  My second game, on ocean, was a 5 DD per side game.  I had no idea how much damage I'd done until I looked up and saw 296k with only a red Khab and Gearing left.  I got a lucky pen on the Khab and a garbage overpen on the Gearing.  Very lucky to have pulled that one out.

They were at long range.  I consider long range 17km plus.  2 were on the Zao at 20km.  Pure luck.  He turned out, when he should have turned in.  3 were on the DM at 18km.  He was slowing down to take cover in a smoke screen.  The others were on an Alabama and a Musashi at 17km and 19km, respectively.

Thanks for the reply, and interesting results for a ship that is being cast as not good at range based on a lot of things I read at least.

My experience is that it does land nice salvos at range as well

Just topped my highest score yesterday (both in Musashi) at 269k (other was 230-240k)...only 2 games above 200k for me...but just recently (while running 10 Yammy battles for HSF containers) started running BBs as mains. IF I reach the 300k mark soon I would expect it to be either the Musashi or Yammy as Yammy is only T10 BB I have camo for (thanx to HSF missions)...although have just enough doubs (5151) saved for Conq camo but only at KGV so it might take awhile for the HE spam queen to get into action (especially as I'll probably drop a few doubs to get camo for 1 of the US cruisers to take advantage of free camos from the split).

Shizzle happens. I can't break the 200,000 barrier, too aggressive I suppose. Nice.

Luck plays a huge amount into it. I had a 300k Yammy game almost a year ago and I'm nowhere near as good as Pope.

I moved from Russia to US in 1994, and have lived here ever since.  This is the very first time I read the term “neener, neener”.  I have an idea what that is, as I heard it before, but I have never read it, so I had no idea it can be written.  Thank you for that.  I shall use it in every battle now.

A childish taunt or jeer pronounced with a nasal sneer, for lack of a more intelligent retort to someone else's jeer or taunt, usually from a peer. Sometimes sung to the tune of "Ring-Around-the-Rosy" for really driving the point home.
or this;
Word of jest or teasing. Similar to saying "ha-ha" or sticking a tongue out at someone.
How was the cafeteria food? I had homecooked turkey and potatoes! Neener-neener!

Congrats on the 300k!!

I had my first match on Ocean in almost a year last weekend, Had my highest scoring game ever (a paltry 184k).

I used to think... "Geez, there's nowhere for me to hide". Now I think... "HAHAHA, there's nowhere for them to hide"

Awesome map

You're absolutely right about the 300k games being more about luck than skill.  I was lucky that I got those long range citadels.  I was lucky that the bad guys didn't focus me down.  I was lucky that we lost 3 DD's inside 3 minutes because they all sat in a single smoke cloud.  I was lucky that I was taking lots of overpens and not full pens.  That made the reds really careless.  Overall, both teams have to be bad enough and the game lasts long enough for you to do your damage.

Hey know what? Bravo being aggressive. I won't rant on about the scardie-cat BBs who float way back, lobbing some hits at long range, and then swan in late battle with high HP and go 'whoo hoo lookit me we won and I killed two ships' (beaten down to near death by your aggressive BBs and CAs way in front of you.

... cowards

Very nice. My current barrier is 400k, max is 386, but I have been able to break that for nearly 2 years now, I've come close server time but no love.
