It's usually my own fault when that happens, so at most I'm annoyed at myself for my lack of situational awareness.

Right here, problem is most players don't know how to accept it was the fault

It's even worse when you can't use the repair party to stop the health bleed.

Flood and fire management is a very important part of being a better player. You can learn to play the game in a few minutes, it takes a long time to learn all of the mechanics, strategies and nuances. Then the game evolves and you have to learn it all differently.

I hate situations where a lot of ships are shooting at me and I don't have enough support and the other team has cover and vision control.  Then, while I'm sinking, it occurs to me that I probably made a decision or two that people with better situational awareness wouldn't have.

Does anyone else hate it when you're trying to fight a battle and you get set on fire in multiple places and flooded by a torpedo hit?

Yes I do. That's why I generally take steps to prevent that happening.

Not as much as when I eat a citadel right after that.

That is when I know I have made some poor life choices.

I love doing that, mainly since I play cruisers.

Team call out in chat to inform them when a BB has DCP'd after 1 fire to focus that target.

If we can get 2-3 fires on them, they burn that much quicker.

Arsonist is a great flag to earn 4 minutes into a game.

Made Georgia howl, and burned Atlanta to the ground.

Now THAT...was Northern Aggression.

Who won and why?  Black slaves won.....get a grip. Rich Southern slave owners were A-Holes and got what they deserved.  Sherman BROUGHT it....that is called total war.  It's how you win.  South declared war in case you do not know that. THEY fired first.  Act of war.  Ft Sumter. Their leaders were all from the slave power and greedy fools. For them money trumped human dignity and rights.  Moreover they were lazy as hell..as were their rich coddled kids. Your poor whites in the South were very different and that is why the began to desert by thousands by 1863.  They began to realize they were being used by the slave power.  The went to Eastern Tenn.  Your turn.  

Southerners in Atlanta set fire to the cotton there by the way. They started that fire. You need a Civil War history course.  You seem to still believe crap that was debunked by the early 20th century.

You’re misunderstanding me 180 degrees.

Well if you charge the ennemi fleet alone, there is nothing WG can do to prevent you from being burned and flooded to death

Only when it happens because our DDs are hiding behind our BBs. 

 

At the back of the map.

Pretty sure sherman himself along with his troops spent the night trying to put it out. That being said his path of destruction was pretty savage. And iirc neither he nor lincoln were exactly abolitionists.

If fires and flooding has you down... time to reconsider flags, captain skills, and modules at the very least... if not some positioning and torpbeat tutorials.
