No Spotting -- I'm Going Home!

A teammate complains that nobody is spotting for him before "First Blood" and says he's going home. Then, our Edinburgh sends a broadside of torps into my hull for some reason and turns pink, though I was nowhere near an enemy ship. Made me wonder how the game was going to turn out.

However, then, the enemy CV decides that two of the best AA ships on our team are the ones that need to be attacked, even though we were side by side and covering each other with AA fire and our CV decides that if he can't sink anything at least he can run around and spot the enemy, which he does well. We win by a landslide. I had shells in the air for a Kraken but the game ended before they landed. I simply love playing the Massey when it's top tier in a  game with CVs.

Wow- maybe the kraken would have pushed you over 70k damage in your high tier BB.

What amazed me is that they knew exactly where I was as their CV kept sending planes at me yet they still would drive by me in low-health ships.

Mass is OP, great success. 

It is a beast but it takes more than simple yoloing in to get good results.

If you look at WG's guide to DD..... it says nothing about spotting... nothing. So, when a new DD driver looks up what WG is telling the capt what to do.. spotting isn't even mentioned...

As I said in one of my last vids, WG can be their own worst enemy because of what they do not do...

All the enemies high tier BBs were still alive, and the OP still had 4 kills.  Seems like he was targeting DDs and CA/CLs To finish them off instead of farming damage.  Like everyone recommends.

That's how you get the big XP rewards, wax the smaller ships to farm the majority of their HP.

True, but the formula doesnt require wizardry. Its the most comfortable of the no-need-aim BBs because of the superior secondaries and that 4 commander points can be turned to survival tasks.

This is called "Winning".
