Geez- What a day...

 Well, it started out good anyway.

 The plan was to use MO, Bama, and possibly others to powergrind the hell out of Nor-Cal's 17 3/4 pt captain.   And it worked well!  Lots of fun had, and an obscene amount of credits were earned!   Captain is now MUCH closer to 18 pts.   Along the way, 2 daily boxes were earned, and the coal mission crushed.

  Then I got bored...

 Decided to work on Queen Elizabeth- in Randoms.   Why?   Longer developing games, and more to shoot at.   Queen is the living embodiment of SLOW- slow everything: speed; reload; turret traverse.   And it's easily trolled by RNG.   Not a great combo for the typical 6 or 7 minute Co-op game.  (with 3+ of that waiting to find each other and chasing down the strays)   Welp,  didn't work.   The ship is just as worthless there...   Good idea, bad execution.

  I decided to cut my losses, and sell this stinking, hot pile of turds, and free xp to KGV.   I had a seriously bad attitude after playing a few games in this stinker.   No more!

KGV turned out to be a much more fun ship to play, and it's even better than I expected!   Added bonus:  I upgraded it entirely for free with upgrades already on hand, lol.   Now to set the WORLD aflame!!! BWAHAHAHA- cough, cough, cough.. er em excuse me...

  Then tried Lyon, a ship I'm far more comfortable in.   Nothing doing.  Not a fun game, trying to hold 3/4 of the reds back with just me and a Nagato.  (rest of the team all charged the other side.)  I got my licks in, but the cumulative damage was telling.

  Off to try the OP of the week.  (cue sad, defeated laughter)  Everything went great- until it didn't.   Then the follow -up waves of reds started pouring in from everywhere.   Yep, we lost.   Now I understand the mega thread discussing this mission.   I don't remember it being THIS nasty- glad I 5 starred it in it's first incarnation.

 Oy- why couldn't I have just stuck with what was working...

  So I went back to MO.   Was having a pretty good game, beat up the red MO,  then went after the Red Hindy that was charging our smoked up, low health DD.   His Torps and my shells hit simultaneously- poor CA never had a chance, lol.    Now on to the annoying pest of a CV that appeared to the South.

  Then my torpedo warning went off, and before I knew it I got hit for 3/4 of my health by a massive salvo!   So I looked around, and all I saw was our Gearing.   I could only guess as to WHY he plugged me like that, was he mad that I got the Hindy kill?   Was he just one of "those"?   I saw RED!  and in a fit of indignation, I blapped him.  And let the flooding sink my ship.  

  There was, of course, some back and forth in chat after.  

  Then came the real kicker:   I noticed in the after game report- I'd been sunk by the Hindenburg!   Yep- had I bothered to LOOK, I'd have seen those torps were RED...  UGH!

  So, if you're reading this; sorry man,  my mistake.    I had a rotten attitude going, and you just happened to be there when the lid blew off.   Again, my apologies. 

  Needless to say, I called it a day and shut the game off.   Not cool to play with that frame of mind.  Nothing like jamming your own foot in your mouth up to the knee!

If you had been hit with freindly fire the chat box would have had a pink message in it. 

Why not just look 5 or so inches to your left.
