So I'm buying all the T9 and T10 ships I have unlocked for the Snowflake event. For some reason I click Battle and insta drop into a T10 on Okinawa.

Seattle with Zero pnt Capt, no camo, no modules installed, no premium consumables.

I think this has happened to a lot of us. I know for a fact it has happened to me more than once!

How much of that damage was fire damage?  ;)  I'm betting a lot, cause Seattle without IFHE seems like it would just be laughed at by T10s :)

Good game though...been there and done that with that same ship too lol.

Been there, done that, t-shirt, etc .... but first thing I thought of was ...

Prince Bismarck is said to have remarked, just before his death, that there was a special providence for drunkards, fools, and the United States of America. :cap_like:

 Well Done! +1

As I have said the captain makes more of a difference than skill points, cammo, flags, etc. A good player will do well regardless.

Yeah, but you're WG staff so you get the Super-Duper Secret-Squirrel Matchmaking where you are always top tier and get Supercontainers 90% of the time.

Don't bother denying it.  I know it's true because i read it somewhere on these very forums!

If you mean super duper secret squirrel matchmaking by putting as many bad players on our team as possible you are correct. I played a bunch of games with Ares1967 last night and wow we had some bad teams. Of course you can add me to the bad list as well. I took a 4 month break, came back and played a lot of coop and picked up bad habits. Now I am struggling in randoms with hyper aggression in Battleships.

12k from fire. Most damage came from a Hindy who made a very poor choice and gave me broadside at under 6km. AP to the rescue. :fish_viking:

I told my team the situation at the start and that I was just gonna try to stay alive and be as useful as I could toward the end. It worked.

 Bad teams? I'd have payed doubloons if some of those teams were good enough to be labeled that highly.

It is easy to get the shiny new toy and completely forget to kit it out!

LOL I bought the Black Squadron or Fleet, whatever that package was called and you better believe I went to each ship and fitted them out.

Dropped a Lightning into a Tier X match having planned to be in Co-op.  Lucky for me, I run camouflage and Premium DCP on every ship.  I actually survived and scored two kills.  The captain might not have been was not a 10-point yet either.

Played the Musashi a few weeks back and had forgotten I had shuffled commanders around.  I had a 10/10 pointer on her...just nothing invested.  Thought it felt sluggish in the match and checked the stuff afterwords to realize my error.  Interestingly, it was a hard carry and was one of my better games in the ship.

Lightning is amazing. Maneuvers like a dream, stealthy 5.5k, plenty of 360 degree guns, torps... just wait till jutland... not as stealthy but the ability to heal as a dd? Priceless. Can get well over 20k hps with captain skills too.

So, what you're saying is that both teams had players that were actively resistant to winning & one side, despite their best efforts, failed in that endeavor? :Smile_facepalm:

I must be the only one who does this but I always take a new ship stripped down to see how much I want to invest in before spending all the millions fitting it out
