It always seems I'm always just a bit short when it comes to unlocking crates or completing daily missions. I mean, 35 xp. That's what, another shell hit or two? C'mon man. Anyone else know that frustration?

Especially frustrating when you only had time for a few battles and you realize you need one more to get you over but have no time.

That's why I keep ships like the Smith and Tachibana around. A t2 coop game takes just a few minutes, no focus, and is a quick and painless way to get of the the hump when you are a little short.

I was finishing up the grind to unlock the Chappy and needed 14 XP.  Basically spawn in, hit "W" once, then go start getting ready for bedtime.  Come back and unlocked.

 

No, I didn't do it that way.  But it WAS tempting.

More to the point, this is why I keep the Black Swan. With no torpedoes in T1 co-op, the chances of going pink through impatience or inattention under the circumstances prevailing are remote.

The time it took to take ss, then go the ss folder in WOW folder, find the ss, then edit it, then loaded the ss to an online service like imur so you can grab the bb code. Created a new post and link the bb code is enough for you to finish 2 games and earn way more XP then the mere 35xp

Lesson of today: Learn to time management

Same.

Play mostly after 2300, so getting a game like that is like WG saying they don’t want me to go to sleep.

And after you get the XP for the container, you realize you missed completing the daily mission by 50XP. Hit battle one more time.

That is co-op time, charge in and sink but you will get more than enough. Take off and do what you needed to do the crate will be there when you fire the game up again.

And the elephant in the room is ... we keep playing for the next "achievement", instead of playing for fun.  I DO miss the old days.

The very reason why I stay up too late many nights.  Just one more battle . . .  I think I nodded off last night waiting for MM, just to wake up a minute latter and I'm sitting AFK in the spawn :fish_sleep:.  Maybe I'm a bit too undisciplined LOL.
