So last night, we were running our T9/T10 ships and we had a very interesting encounter I wanted to share with you all.  Keep in mind, everyone says never go up the middle of Two Brothers..... Let the Battle of the Gap begin...

 

(And thanks guys, it was a great laugh last night!)

Crazy. I have yet to go through the gap in 700+ battles.

Bloody hell, that situation is the perfect time to have a group of destroyers and a Kitakami rather than a line of battleships.

ram kill needs to be made into a mission. we have enough torpedo and plane kill missions

 

That would be different for sure.  Imagine all the ships in the match trying to ram each other...  lol

I think I've been through it once. I did torpedo a Colorado that came through the gap, once, though.

I ran my Tirpitz through the gap a week or two ago. I went east with 3 other ships. We quickly met the whole enemy team and my escorts went all "RETREAT!!" I had no choice to turn tail and run as well. The gap actually gave me some cover from the hundreds of shells coming at me. It paid off because I was able to help cap with a friendly DD.

I lead 2 other BBs through the gap once after routing the east flank. West was getting there rear handed to them and would have been dead if we went all the way around the long way, so up the gap we went, popped out behind the enemy fleet, and proceeded to obliterate 2 BBs and 2 cruisers before they even got their guns aimed at us. It was spectacular.

Sometimes that tactic pays off, you just need the team to commit.

 

It pays off when the team you are doing it to is full players like on this guys team..        I never seen so much incompetence  LoL.   And that's bad since I am not even good.

Seen plenty of battles play out like this and also been on the giving end of it as well.  This was posted back when people thought you couldn't pull this kind of thing off.  The gap was always a "fail".  Which it wasn't ;)
