I just pulled the most clutch win of my entire career, in front of @Pigeon_of_War spectating! The adrenaline ....

Unfortunately I don't have the replay, because of a local bug it got corrupted, I DC'd half way during the match and came back to pull off that carry. But, man, I'm shaking.

Please, Pigeon, tell me you have the replay of that?

<edit>

We were fighting a losing battle all match long. The team lemming trained hard east, the red team pushed west. Fortunately enough flexed back to help delay the red team. I fought a fighting retreat until I fell victim to a bug and had to restart my client. fortunately I was still alive when I reconnected and continued my flight east.

At one point we were two ships to three or four, I can't quite remember in the haze. Pigeon in his Zep, me in Alsace, Pigeon almost out of planes, me almost out of health. Pigeon was killed, there was an Alabama and a Myoko left on the red team. I managed to sink the Alabama with a lucky HE salvo and my secondaries, that just left me on low health vs a Myoko that wasn't lit.

WASD'ing every inch of the way, I still drove straight in to a salvo of the Myoko's fish and ate two that would've killed me if I hadn't smashed my DCP and repair right before they hit - I swear I was down to single hitpoints as those two fish hit me.

Then the Myoko comitted a mistake. He got greedy. He came around the island, firing, letting me know where he was. If he'd remained dark they would've won on points. But he fired, wanted to finish me off as I was desperately trying not to sink after those torpedoes. I hit him with an AP salvo from my fore turrets, he survived.  I waited for the reload ... Got bad dispersion with my next salvo from my front turrets. He was beating me down, turning to give me the other side of fish ...

I got him with my rear turret.

Man ...

@Lert Here you go. Also you should check the Pigeon's Nest in the forums.

I believe I owe you something...

Great game! Congrats to @Lert for earning a Coo of Boom Flag! :Smile_honoring:

 

I was heartbroken when I saw those torpedoes about to hit you---I thought it was over for sure. That game had me on the edge of my seat. Everything came together in the end though!

I think I was at single digits for a moment, my heart was beating about as fast as I was hammering that R and T.

Would you mind if I e-mail this replay from your perspective to Jingles and other youtubers?

Lol a lot of times if I am working on carrying that hard I get Torpedo or something by allied ship...

:fish_palm:

Makes your battle all the more impressive Lert since all too often if you get such an opportunity to have magnificent battle result. You often have some TKers added into your team that contribute to the bad luck that you fight to overcome.

Love the story. Congratulations!

One of my favorite victories was similar. Got dropped from a game in a Bismark (WoWS crashed the system and I had to reboot). I get back in almost 5 minutes later to find us behind, and end up getting 150k damage, 4 kills, and outlast a 2 on 1 situation against an Alabama and a Des Moines to win the match as the sole survivor.

But to do it in front of Pidgeon? Nice!!!!!

Agreed! I never liked tier 9 / 10 meta, but this ship is a keeper and makes me play high tier.

The highest French ship i earned in a crate was tier7.

As soon as the line released, me and 2 clanmates free exp to tier 9....

I did not understand, at the time, what I had done....

So many ships sit o. Port as you just can't play 1 game in her.

Good or bad game doesn't matter, those secondaries and planes dropping....

My god what have I done?

I run secondary arm survival, main batter accuracy and as range. 

I have 9.8 secondaries, and fly swatting with BFT and AFT. 

Still messing around to see if main accuracy is really needed.
