I am not the best Battleship player... so when I got these, I was very surprised:

The battle ended with myself, and a Wyoming still alive on my team. I thought for sure I was going to die, so that in itself is a nice surprise. I didn't top the charts but I came close, only 58 base experience from being tied for first:

We came upon the carrier, not purposefully hunting it down, but since we spotted it, might as well, right? But I did not kill the carrier. The ship I killed:

I received Dreadnaught 2 games in a row (there was one game between the OP and these two, in which dreadnaught was not received)

I forgot to screenshot the detailed report screen, but the kill I made was against the enemy aircraft carrier... dude ran his ship straight up the middle, which brought him in line with me. Replay: 20181019_231237_PJSB007-Kongo-1942_10_NE_big_race.wowsreplay

This next one in my Musashi (Yes I suck at BBs, and Yes, I still purchased this ship anyway, bugger off). First kill was an enemy Iowa, second the enemy Worcester, and the third was enemy Montana. Replay: 20181019_232728_PJSB509-Musashi_15_NE_north.wowsreplay

That brings my total Dreadnaught to 4.

Congratulations on the results!

I see you are a Japanese DD main.  How are you enjoying the different pace of the Musashi?  

I’m a DD gunboat and CL fan due to the high rate of fire.  I now have enough coal to get Musashi, but have my doubts about enjoying the different play style.

 Thanks for sharing!

Musashi takes some getting used to, especially since my focus has been on IJN DD for so long. But I think I am starting to get the hang of her. It also helps that I am slowly grinding my way up the IJN BB line as well, but the Musashi is far more accurate with her guns than Kongo was. I haven't played Fuso yet, though she is waiting for her commander to be retrained, so I'll be playing Musashi a bit more just to retrain the commander.

If you ever plan on going down the IJN BB line, I recommend grabbing the Musashi. I would also recommend using her only after you get a feel for Battleships, and not what I did, and pretty much play her with little experience, though enough to know what is expected of me in the high tier matches.

Thanks for the feedback.  I’m about 2/3 thru the Kongo grind now with thoughts of slowly working my way up the line.  I just don’t enjoy the long wait for that next salvo after a missed shot to keep the grind a focused effort.  Hopefully with better accuracy as the ships improve it will become more enjoyable.

Happy Battles,
