Weirdest thing I've seen so far, joined yesterday and has a thunderer with only 24 matches. (randoms and co-op combined)

 

Any idea who this is?

Other than spending a metric ton of money on some containers that have a coal drop I can't think of anything else than maybe having the ship given for press purposes, though there are press accounts around anyway.

Also there's a no name and shame rule on the forums; while I don't think you are shaming said player, it might be taken down if the name is kept visible.

Im also inclined to say whoopie.

Someone is a whale of a wallet and got piles of coal or whatever through containers. Its possible. It would have to be a mountain of dollars though. Possibly thousands.

Even if the player is brand new to the game its not difficult to point and click a BB to shoot something.

There are several ways someone could have a Thunderer with so few random/co-op battles: 

1) Someone whaled hard on crates that can drop coal until they got enough to buy Thunderer

2) Press account of some sort, which would have all ships available on it besides test and reward ships

3) It’s an account reroll - if you reset/reroll your account, it doesn’t remove premium/special/resource ships among other things, since some can no longer be acquired

4) The in-game stats page only tracks random, co-op, and old/new ranked battles, but that doesn’t mean this player has only played 24 battles total - ops, clan battles, and all of the event modes will only display on your forum battle count, but plenty of them award xp (for crates) or other resources

 

Of those four, the last one definitely out since the account was registered yesterday and there wouldn’t be time to acquire the resources for Thunderer in a single day of playtime.

They could of spent their money better, IMO. The ship does nothing for me and should get the award for spending more time in or in back of spawn area. Does nothing for team play. Only a pad your stats ship. I am a below average player at 49% and only have 32 games in it and suck with it. But, to be fair, I support caps in my BBs and unless you play AP with it which and I have tried , it is useless. Many better ships out there. Ohio anytime over it.

I really doubt it's a press account, the name is a bit off, and playing thunderer continuously is an even bigger eh. However, some facts support it such as the person is somewhat okay-good.

We have to much time on our hands, when we start to question those around us...

Who cares... Be happy you found someone with 22 battles...

The way the game is headed, those type of players are going extinct as the doo doo bird...

I can't see any images, so... It could be 24 matches in Random Battles.  He may have had tons of battles in Co-Op and ended up queuing up in Randoms by mistake.

How many battles can a player have had in what now would amount to 1 (one) day?

Random Battles take long, but let's say 15 minutes.  Not surprising to go the full 20.

15 minutes x 22 games = 330 minutes

330 minutes / 60 minutes = 5.5 hours

 

Easily doable if a player is having fun and just hitting battle after battle.  I have had stretches of play on the weekend for longer when I was heavily into the game.

Oh I understand that.  Just thinking that even maximizing time while playing battles, a player's not going to get far in just one day.  Certainly not enough for a Thunderer unless there was some severe whaling going on.

He could also be a reroll, especially if the stats on the "new" account are any decent.  Again, I cannot see the images because this forum is problematic for me.

This has to be some kind of special account. No way he could have the Thud by regular means.Plus there is the protected MM. So......this is some kind of "special" account.
