At long last, after 4786 matches played, I have earned the coveted title of "hacker" (I use a completely vanilla client)

In my final battle while grinding through HMS Devonshire I finally received my "hacker" badge.  I did so by shooting at a Fubuki that had smoked up while hardly moving by holding my guns are where I thought he was for the 5-10 seconds it took to reload.  Two shells hit and one of them caused a detonation.

That is about the highest honor that can be bestowed on someone. :Smile_honoring: Any sufficiently skilled player is indistinguishable from hacking.

Forget Rank 1, you haven't Ranked out until you've been given the coveted title of hacker:Smile_honoring:

 

Honestly though, that guy's out of touch. Smoke firing is really common now. Used to be no one bothered to shoot a smoke ship. But the last year there's so many that people are learning. Smoke up and shoot and chances are someone is going to lob a couple shells at you. People are really starting to counter smoke, and if you're not moving there's a good chance someone is going to tag you. The playerbase does adapt, it just takes a while. Except for this guy apparently.

This evening I got accused of going afk the entire match and called a moron, even though I finished top 3. Guess it's possible /shrug.

Were you in a Sinop?  If so, I think I was in that match with you.  I was surprised when someone from the other side of the map called you out.

Nope, a Nagato. Was hiding behind islands setting fire to t9 ships. I'm no expert at this game at all, total newbie even though I've had an account for many years. . I was not AFK though lol.

That happened to me back in open Beta. I may have used a wand. I think the spell is Super Citadelius and Longinus Extremis.

Yes, there are jackets, pet lizards, a few snakes, a falcon or two, and maybe some cats.

If you are really magical, a blue dragon.

There are various parties we go to. Mostly, masquerade because we really don't want to really reveal ourselves.

Occasionally we do the ghost torpedo in game just to freak out the younger players on Halloween.

I agree it's been 5 years, most of us are working on our advanced doctoral thesis on overmatching at long range whilst in smoke.

Welcome to the club. After you flash that shiny new badge at the door, the first drink will be on the house.

Could be worse, cit a Atago, sailing 12km away broadside im front of my Arizona, to dead. Guy went completely mental and wanted to bring WG and me to court for hacking...

The last time I did what you did, it was a Smolensk that I exploded in smoke with my Thunderer by tracing the shell arcs back.

The Smolensk player had the good grace to admit he'd been nailed fair and square, and congratulated me on the shot.

I have only been accused of hacking once, but I get bonus points because I was accused by a member of my own team.

I see lots of hack accusations leveled at the reds.

Being in coop makes it kind of sad.
