 For me, after a long session of tier 10 games I jumped down to tier four for some fun and relaxing seal clubbing. I have the Arkansas Beta but as crazy as it sounds I like the Ishizuchi better. I had back to back Krackens while in a division with @IronMike11B4O. We couldn't stop laughing, I think the speed of the  Ishizuchi trumps some of the Arkansas beta's stronger points.

I saw that the Huanghe was for sale again and thought - Wynaut get the ship and play it... It was so weird to start out at level 1 with a tier 6 premium and then had to painstakingly grind to a 10 point captain (the leveling up gave me enough free xp to get it to level 7, and then after 20 or so random battles and a 5 star operation, I was able to achieve commander level 10!). Honestly, I didn't know what I was expecting when I took the leap of faith to by the little cruiser, but I have been pleasantly surprised at how versatile and fun this boat is to use. I plan on continuing my push to the top of NA Huanghe leaderboard, and I am currently 4th with a goal of being #1. I plan on making a guide for others who have this ship and would like to play her to her strengths (People who don't have all the xp to just make commanders 19 will find it useful too). 

This is the only ship this account has- I plan to see you on the water, but will see you me? I think not <3

I got a ton of capping ribbons in my Khabarovsk and Udaloi. High tier DD numbers are really down. 

Had a couple MM dumps during prime time that had uneven numbers of DDs on the teams. O.o

Had a couple games with 5 DDs per side, but they were the exception. 

Had one game where my Republieque was the only BB on our team. 

LOL penned an Eugen through the stern for half his health. 

Bullied Clevelands with my Udaloi.

Saw a khaba get flanked flanked and killed by a dm that was spotted the entire time.

 Went 3-5 with Kutuzov on sat then 13-3 on sun. Sometimes you just gotta stop thinking.

Two very weird things happened to me this weekend.

1) had a tier X game in my z23 where I solo'd a Des Moines, sank a Fletcher and Kagero, and my entire team was sunk in 10 minutes, having sunk only those 3 ships. It's odd because I only have 278 games in destroyers since I started playing, so you would think that I wouldn't have been the strongest asset on the team in that game.

2) While working on getting the Marianas Turkey Shoot flag, I experienced what that battle must have felt like. Had a game where I got two torp hits, 2 bomb hits, and 272k spotting damage, while losing 65 planes to the red team, of which 0 were lost to the red CV. It wasn't a battle, it was a slaughter.

Twice, in a row (both times in Montana), I was the only player on my teams to get kills. One match was 4 kills and confederate. The other was 2 kills. 

I have never seen a team disintegrate that like before. I think we were down 3 ships before the 3 minute mark.

Came within a second of getting a Double Strike with Okhotnik, blasted right through a division of BB's sailing in formation, tossed 6 fish to the left, 6 fish to the right. TOG boat is much fun.

ROFLMAO, I wish I could have seen it and I wish I could have heard the panic on the other team.

100K in my Edinburgh on a loss.

I got the 70K and a win that I needed eventually, but man... best game ever in that ship in damage terms, and all for naught.

Perspective - on any other day, when I didn't badly need to fulfil a particular requirement, I would have been very proud of that game.  And when I eventually DID have that requirement, this particular loss seemed just a little less bitter.  :Smile_Default:

Man, that's putting your money where your mouth is.  I thought @theLaalaa was specialised in his love for the Black Swan, but you take specialisation to a whole new level! I will be looking out for you on the high seas, and I look forward to your guide as I'm sure I'll get one in a Santa Crate or a Supercontainer at some stage.

Thanks! I have begun development of the "How to" guide of this ship, and I plan on finishing it in the next few days. A few of my friends have gotten this ship by way of super-container don't know what to do with it; I want them to be able to use it sufficiently and not see it as just another port ornament. I hope to see you on the high seas as well, while also respectfully declining to alert you of my location on the map (If you are on the enemy team) <3 .

One of my wife's best friends who's just two weeks ahead of our schedule on the due date of her baby ended up having her water break on Saturday and the baby was born yesterday, on Father's Day.  Pretty freaking cool.  Baby came a whole month early but is healthy.  But now my wife, with 6 weeks to go, is freaking out thinking what happens if our baby arrives a month early so she went into panic mode and we spent the whole weekend preparing in case we're early too.  The latest technology and features of car seats and stroller contraptions are pretty neat but like WoWs, they come with a steep learning curve.  Sorting all the stuff out in the nursery I lost track of how many times I said to myself, "Never had any of this $#^% when I was a kid."  Rail guard cushions for the sides of the crib?  Really?  Back in my day, we banged our heads and knees and stubbed our toes on those rails, and often.  Made us grow up with a sense of reality.

My weekend summed up in one game, pretty much. 

*cries into pile of silver*

Oh, I also got told to go eff myself for daring to call out a target whilst playing my Mahan because...I have no idea. I wasn't spamming chat or anything. I really not sure what happened, but will check the replay.

That was the same game that our Freddy (top tier BB) told us we all suck and that he's heading back to port -- so he turned his boat around and went AFK. 

We were winning by 200 points at the time. :cap_like:

I went on to finish third with 70K or so spotting, two solo caps, and a kill of one of their DDs despite being in a bottom tier in a DD that can be seen from space and having almost all my health gone in the first three minutes because radar is balanced, yo.

:cap_yes:

 

Overall, though, had fun, so I guess that counts for something.

WOW, it is sad to see such a great individual effort go to waste.
