Had a rare match earlier where less than a minute on the clock, I nabbed a cap, and we're set to win on pts after time expires (Akatsuki). Smoked in cap, and decided to charge out with 20 seconds left even though I know he might have the bombers camping my smoke.

Ranger destroys me and we lose because of my oh derp moment. Ugh! That carelessness still rankles some 5 hours later.

My derp was on them, other team ahead on points.. all that’s left of our teal, me in a DD and a lone Cruiser ...the enemy had just one low health BB... I cap as B.B. appears and nails me 10 seconds to go I blow up but get off 1 volly at BB one shell hits they blow up .. we win ... a freakin miracle

I should have looked.

So intent on sinking this cruiser.... and I did... and turned to leave the area because the fighting was getting intense, so many ships trying to take the cap .... straight into the side of an enemy BB..... glug glug

My last oh derp moment wasn't from me, it was from an enemy shima. He was running F3 torps, and showed up at 4km. I wasn't moving. Needless to say, he missed every single torpedo.

Earlier I trusted my team to actually push and contend caps as I hammered the enemy in my Iowa. The derp moment was yet again mistakenly trusting my team to do anything but run away or die in foolish charges even by my standard. And I'm the guy that just attacked 3 DD's in my GK on my own. Though in my defense I dodged all but 2 of their torps (no flooding) till one got lucky at point blank range with them only to be detonated by a team torp instead of destroyed by my secondaries as well as all the damned fires the reds set on my ship (seriously, fire damage or burn time on BB's and CV's needs a nerf too), inflicted decent damage on the others and they were so focused on trying to kill me my team capped the caps and sunk the rest of the reds.

We were winning on points. I was in the gunsights of a Normandie and Lyon while I was backing up in my Nagato, at 7000 HP. One HE shell somehow hit me at the last 30 seconds of the game while both my DCP and RP were on cooldown and started a fire that started a chain reaction that ultimately made us lose.

Would've been easily a win if our Sims didn't go pewpewpew against 3 BBs and our CV actually bothered to give me air cover, as it was the dive bombers and the fires that wore me down.

I was in my Yugumo on a Standard Battle match on Tears of the Desert. Our team had suffered a near catastrophic collapse on the other side from where I was. I managed to get a good few torps off, but only hit one torp on most volleys. Slowly, all the other ships on my side of the map were picked off, as were the stray remnants of the other side of the map. Soon enough- by the 15 minute mark I think- I was the last ship left. I fought my way back toward the cap, but was just outside gun range of the enemy cruiser that was capping our base. It managed to cap just before my shells landed.

Selected Musashi in port, pressed the battle button. 

Pressed the purchase button in the premium shop with the Gascogne selected. 

As you can see, mistakes have been made.

Turned broadside against a yamato, which obviously didn't end too well. One of those horrible situations where, it was either going to be that, or rammed, or get wall of skilled by a shima nearby, while can't do much thanks to a random island blocking your escape vector.

after playing arma for 4+ hours and working that day, i decided to do one last game after several hours of WoWs to finish a mission....   which lead to that poor decision.   i didn't think he was doing a hard turn.

Yesterday I entered a Cap with a friendly DD, sure that I was out of range of radar or hydro. The friendly DD got hydro'd by a German DD and got deleted pretty quick.

I berated the friendly DD for not paying attention to the enemy hydro but less than 20 seconds later I got radared by a CC testing the new U.S cruiser ' Buffalo'.

Needless to say I got deleted quickly, kicking myself for not following my own advice.

Ouch that hurt! :cap_haloween:

A day or two ago, I smoked up in a cap in Lo Yang. Ate torps and thought to myself “why didn’t you engage hydro you moron?”

yea. i saw him go from my right to left, and thought he was clear, not realizing what he was doing.   after he passed, i just discounted what he was doing.  playing WoWs when you are tired is just a bad idea.(especially at 5AM)

 

 

and i know i will do that one day in the german DDs.  or, even when my hydro is on, still eat a torp.

In an Independence, on the New Dawn map...

5ce95ea2-36b9-11e5-9e72-ac162d8bc1e4.jpg

This one

...I'm on the lower left side of the map, heading North. I know there's at least one DD coming for me down the 1-2 line, but I can't turn around, they're pushing hard on my right flank.

On the Southern tip of that apostrophe-shaped island on the 2 line when two DDs pop-up on the map on the 1 line, about 2 squares North of me. My bombers were still on reload so I couldn't scout ahead, but I'm lucky; they're done right around that time. First my dive bombers take-off. Nicholas is low health, I kill him quickly, but the Minekaze is still rushing me. I spot his torps and dodge them. He's only got his guns now. My torpedo bombers take-off as our range drops to about 4km. He's still ahead of me but coming hard. I align my bombers to drop, he starts to turn. I realign and drop, it's not certain, those things can turn on a dime.

But it's no use. One of the torps hit and I kill him.

.

.

.

Then I kill myself.

.............................

I was so target fixated on this guy that I didn't realise I was sailing straight into the path of my own torps.

I facepalm at such high velocity that my head goes right through my hand. But the team is cool about it, victory was all but certain at this point. We all have a big laugh and I burn that moment in my memory anticipating to tell it to my grandkids 30 years down the line.

Good times.

I just got Yamato yesterday or the day before. Took a few battles to get used to it, get captain skills set right-ish, etc., but I'm starting to do okay with it. Last 4 battles I've averaged 104k. First place on three of the teams, second place on the fourth.

Of course, they've been losses. In fact, out of 11 battles in that ship so far, there's only been one win. 

Just firing up the game seems like a massive derp, these past couple days.

Saturday night, I took the shiny horse to the races. 

First match is tier 9 with several fletchers. While in game I thought there was only one. 

 

I noticed them pop up and started turning away expecting torps. 

They came. Right into my broadside. Some really nice torps by the Fletcher.

Jesus christ. 2 more losses after the whining I did just above (91,882 damage and 175,363 damage), so I went over to coop, figured I'd just knock out the Normandie mission for today that way.

Bzzt. Nope.

image.png.5d5fd3d15db324970803d4ddcc12a3d7.png

I'd just hit my opposite Yamato for ~35,000 damage, and my guns were about 3.5 seconds away from finishing off the last 6500 when... nope. Bot carrier hit him with 4 torpedoes. Of course, the fifth one hit me and started me flooding to the point where the enemy bot Alabama zapped me the rest of the way.

Got a win out of it, sure, but even losing a battle in random gets more XP than that, and I still didn't get the [edited]Normandie stuff done. FML.

Was n my gearing. Had 300 point lead, 4 boats vs 3 red. I was with a Kagero and a New Orleans trying to get final cap. An expertly driven hipper, with lady luck herself at the wheel dodged almost two dissent torps at 9km and was somehow able to kill the kagero and scare off the new orleans. The clock was winding down. It was now just him and I. I’m tearing into him in a drive by as I am about to leave my smoke with AP.  Had 4 secs until torp reload. Then he hits me with hydro (oh derp !! I thought he used it to dodge torps a while back) and the Iowa a cap zone away nukes me. Lost the match. Feel my shame!

Nerf B.B. AP and nerf hydro!! Lol, just kidding.

I did rip 30k from that hoppers hide w just ap....

At one point I was playing in my Vampire (one of my first games during its release , so team was asking me about it).  I was heading over to that part on Big Race where all the DDs go. While typing, looked down anddidn't know I had been spotted by a Campeltown 2 km away. He shoved some torps into my bote and I was dead without doing pretty much anything.

Seeing you repeatedly firing HE on a broad siding cruiser sub 5km is also pretty derpy.

My Ryujo and a NM escort ended up pushing the enemy cap from the SW side because it was empty. A Yorck that retreated from the NE ended up fighting us. First torpedo salvo missed me, so he started shooting the NM, second torpedo salvo sunk the NM, first torpedo salvo rearmed and sank me as I killed him with my Secondaries. I believe we won the battle.

Depends what ship I'm running and the range. I've generally had mixed results from BB AP (save MO/Montana/Yammy) beyond 15km.

Look at my stats.  I tend to have a derp moment nearly every match.

 

The most recent one I can think of, I was in the Cesare.  I was chasing down an enemy cruiser near the end of the match, pretty well tunnel visioned.  I completely forgot about the enemy Cesare that was last spotted on the far side of an island about 10km away from me.  He sails past the island, and I'm a perfect broadside target for him.  Devastating Striked me from 3/4s health.  When I asked, he said he scored 7 citadels on me.
