Back in July 2016, I this game caught my eye. Being an Ex Service member and History teacher I jumped at it because I love old warships. BB's CA, CL, and DD's. Yes I left CV's out, lol. I started playing on an old laptop that was NOT built for gaming and it used to overheat and crash during games quite a lot. I have a daughter that liked to play also so we just sailed around having fun not knowing what we were doing. Heck, I didn't know what a Capts skill was for 6 months! Needless to say my stats were horrible.

2 years ago the competitive side in me took over and I was learning the game pretty good and really trying hard and my numbers SLOWLY started rising. Received a lot of help from players here in the forum. Joined a clan and learned from them. Larened the bad that goes along with a clan also. Anyway to make a long story short, I just passed 50 percent on my win rate. I have other stats that are very average also but at least they are heading in the right direction. Thanks to all who have helped me achieve being an average player. Lol.:cap_horn::cap_horn:

Good work, it's hard to change an average when you have 13,000 data points.

Congrats!  I reached the same milestone last fall, and it felt really good!  I’ve never killed 9 ships in one battle though!  Good God!  :cap_wander:

Heck I remember when I was at 45% and 27,000 damage a game. It's been a heck of a grind.

Bizarrely, my highest kill game in Randoms (7) is in a ship I don’t particularly like, Belfast.

I am at high 50-51% WR as a solo player, up from 38%...  I would like to it be higher but the only way that is happening is with re-rolling or creating a second account and not willing to do that.... :)

Congrats...!
