So I decided to re buy the Kagero yesterday to use for my slowly progressing T8 Campaigns.  I was moving pretty good in the campaigns but it really is the best T8 DD out there. I had not had the ship in my tray for at least a year. I found a 10 point captain and put him on it, a little camo and a couple of flags and went for a cruise in random figuring I would get a nice 6/7/8 or 7/8/9 battle. No luck I of 4 T8s in a 8/9/10 battle with 5 radar boats on the other side. As one of two DDs I decide to move out slow so I have Cruiser coverage. I look at the Chat and I see;

Hey  DD "go cap A"

DD "get In A"

and I'm thinking WTH they have radar and I have like at 10k torp range against 10k radar.

I thinking of a nice way to respond, when I see some one say in Chat" there are 5 radar boats on the other side and maybe he is being a little cautious".

Now I'm wondering; A) every word and spelled right, B) that was fast, and C) very correct assumption.

Then I see who it is ..... Little White Mouse in a Massachusetts.

Now i am really worried I will die quick or smoke early or really screw up and so it goes all in front of LWM, i will most likely miss torps, fail to cap, won't spot hardly anything and find myself too far a head with everyone heading the other way.

Thinking out loud to myself don't let me screw up more, I try to stay alive, spot and move to support the team. I am totally spotting and land 2 shells, no torps in like 7 minutes.

Then as we are losing and the remaining our 8 team members are finally fighting together, two torp hits, 1 shell and a ship dead. OK right, now i am just a low scorer not a loser right( your opinion might differ) but i am watching the chat, the team is focusing, LWM is fighting and people are working together when I get one on one with the last DD on their side who has twice as much life as me....ITS OVER right im a dead man.

WAIT no its not, we are up, dodge, fire ,turn, we are down, dodge, fire, repair, turn , wait, wait, wait smoke.....WTH he is charging me at 5k with deep water torps and I am in Kagero with 4k HP left...torps away and

BOOM. IM ALIVE! Say it with me" IM ALIVE!.................. I feel like Bill Murry in "SCROGGED".

But we are losing. I stepped up fought hard did not fail my team or LWM and we are losing again with 6 minutes to go, so I spot, we are ahead. No we are behind, No we are ahead, we capped. OMG 3 minutes left, Im spotting chasing the BBS, spot, spot, finish them....Come on. OH crap we won.

my 40,000 damage and two kills. I did not let mouse down, I held the line and finished one ship and fought another to destruction.

I have to wonder why i was scared of seeing a little white mouse, when after all she was on my team.

was I trying to impress a girl? or just trying to live up to expectations? or

was it more like The Shepard's Prayer( Allen Shepard) 'Lord Don't Let Me Screw  Up"

Thanks Mouse

If she is in a Massachusetts now, I hope it is for her next review :)   Maybe you'll be in it @StingRayOne  Immortality!

You were trying to impress The Mouse. I'm sure you would have tried just as hard for Flamu.

I didn't asked you to cap A, I asked you to SPOT A - I do it by skirting the southern edge and using the south-central island as hard cover. The idea is to spot any cruisers or a DD entering the cap, launch a volley of torps for area denial and then bait out a wasted radar when you are behind the island. 

It looked to me like you were going straight to the 1 line, which is why I asked for spotting. I was in an Ibuki and did not want a DD lighting me up from the cap while I was trying to position to kite their push.

Great read. I have the same reaction sometimes when I see a CC, youtuber or twitch user I follow. keep telling myself..."Don't let this game be on of my worse ones." or "Just kill me now please so I don't have to embarrass myself."
