Kill stealer! :Smile_honoring:

It certainly felt that way.  The Cleveland was the only kill I got on a ship that was already under fire. All of the others was chasing down badly mauled ships that had already disengaged.

Welcome to the life of a CV captain and often the captain of any other ship. A Kraken requires more than a little luck no matter how good you are.

We ought to have a forum contest to see who can get a Kraken with the least amount of damage caused to enemy ships.

One of the CCs/streamers had a discord contest somewhat similar to that a month or so ago but it was pulled very quickly

My only question: Did you kill the Bismarck PROPERLY by disabling her rudder and letting flooding do the rest whilst everyone else pounded away at them?:Smile-_tongue:

That's not a bad idea, but to make it fair, it would have to be open for a long time.  It would probably need some ground rules too.

  1. A range of eligible dates / patches.
  2. A fixed tier.
  3. No divisions.
  4. No synch drops.

Sycnch drops would be hard it prove as running into clan mates is not rare.

Maybe just have them submit a replay too? You'd only have to look at the "top" scorers at most, just to make sure there wasn't any obvious rigging going on.

Hey man, that's part of your job as a carrier: delivering the coup de grace so they can't limp off an heal.

I picked up a Kraken in my Ranger yesterday. Didn't screen shot the results page but have the replay until the next update. Was similar to what LWM is showing. Just things fell into place with some badly wounded ships.

 

Congratulations to LWM! :Smile_honoring:

Congrats.

 

My record low Kraken was 21k damage, 6 kills in a GC. Disconnected early on, reconnected and proceded to secure a bunch of kills.

 

Team was super not happy with me.

Picking off wounded targets is probably what CVs are best at given the rework took away a lot of their alpha damage.

I cannot remember the last time I knew a particular kill would give me a kraken.  I often play so intensely I don't notice my kill count until the game ends...or...I get a kraken....lol.

I can! I had to take a yolo shot and hope that, as the WoT players would say, Comrade Stalin reached out from hell to guide my shells to the enemy Duke of York's citadel so that I could kill last remaining capitalist dog with Peter the Leaky to secure Kraken for glorious motherland.

I think I know why, but really, if it's only a forum contest, it will be a minimal amount of people participating.

Oddly enough, Royal Navy doctrine used to be that the CV's planes were there to cripple the enemy to prevent their escape and allow the fleet to nail them (bitter lessons of Jutland). However, WOWS doesn't model torpedo damage that way and the doctrine as you state it is more appropriate to ships with no guaranteed one-shot kill capability against healthy major units.

Even still, it should not be encouraged.
