So..I'm headed toward another one of those Textbook Tiger engagements.  DD in front of me, charging toward an open mid cap...my radar/smoke at the ready.  If a red DD shows...we'll get  him.

Only thing for me to do is chat out to my friendly green Yugumo the strategy.

I touch type, so I have Yugumo typed on the  keyboard in about half a second.  The problem?  I'm not in chat mode.  

I've done this from time to time, but not at the consequences experienced herein.  You see, Tiger's smoke is on "Y".  Radar is on "U".  So instead of getting Yugumo in chat...I pop smoke and radar...significantly premature to the cap.  Ultimate Fubar.  And yeah..a DD was there.  Dammit.

I don't normally curse in chat.  But I made an exception this time.

Yeah...I can imagine...

Not sure if I would have risked something else bad happening (even if just missing a potential good shot...to try to make up for the fubar) while I was typing in chat after that...but everybody in the house sure would have heard about it.

Soshi:

 

I have fat fingered and or not realized that chat did not come up many times before and will probably do it many times in the future.  It is embarrassing but I bet you will not do it again for awhile because you will be extra cautious until you get comfortable again.

I have seen people type "wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" in chat, probably trying to accelerate/turn ship while in chat mode. It happens, laugh about it and move on.

Similar thing occurs to me on occasion.  When I forget that the chat box goes away, and iIm typing away then I realised that I have activated the radar/hydro...at 15km away from any targets.
