On the open ocean map, we had one player in a cruiser state that he would draw their fire while we capped.  Despite our overwhelming objection, and begging him to stay with the group, he was firm in his belief that his master plan would work.  He sailed off by himself, was killed in a hail of fire by the enemy, who were not the least bit distracted since no one else was in range yet.

 

On tierra del fuego, we had captured B and were picking apart the enemy that was doing circles in the open water around A.  An enemy DD was pinned down behind an island between the two cap points.  He was already low health, and if he left the strip of shore he was hiding behind he was sure to get hit.  Suddenly our South Carolina swings and heads around the island...to fire at some cruiser in the distance.  Sure enough, the DD sends a full spread of torps into him from about 1km away.  Full health to dead in a split second.

 

In the same location, different battle, an enemy Tirpitz on low health was passing between two islands from A going towards B.  Another South Carolina captain at about 3/4 health turned and headed right towards the Tirpitz.  I yelled in chat, "WATCH HIS TORPS!" but it was too late, the SC thought he was going to exchange broadsides with the Tirpitz and finish him off.  The Tirpitz continued on to taking B away from us.

 

Start of the battle, we're trying to decide where to go, when one of the team happily announces that he's drunk.  To which another replies that he's just been smoking his bong.  The game went about as you would expect with such serious competitors.

 

Edit: replace all references of South Carolina with North Carolina. *oops*

I was in a battle that had a North Carolina sail past two caps because he was chasing the carrier.

He didn't shoot at stuff either, said it'd mess up his stealth.

I lost two battles getting to rank 10, it was horrific.

 

A friend of mine has been having a similar string of luck with his teams.  He and I started playing on the same day, and he's rank four.  I got within one win of rank six before suffering loss after loss that has left me yo-yo'ing back and forth in rank nine.

I went from rank 4 3 stars to rank 8 3 stars in one night

 

I'm still recovering from that night and probably will never get back up.

 

Also had this battle earlier, why me

Was that Tirpitz me? I did this to a NoCal just the other day on that map.

Just got out of a ranked battle where 2 of my team mates were arguing and trying to shoot each other.    The other 5 of us picked up the slack and we still won.

I used to have a life

 

I've never played ranked outside of the first public test for it and likely never will.

And I'm more sane and happy for it.

I don't know if I should laugh or cry. But everyone knows how stealthy the North Carolina is. It's about as subtle as a sasquatch walking through the family picnic.

Second battle at Rank 10...got my NC out, waited what seemed like 25 minutes-to be matched with 4 dd's on each team, 1 ca, 1 bb....Equally as hard for other team, but seemed kinda crazy. Not to mention, it messed with my stealth...sneaking up on a Fubuki from 14 km out.

promised my team not to cap being annoyed at them not helping me at the beginning of the game

didn't cap

ended in the position when if the game was lost or possibly won was decided by if i could  reach a cap in time

suddenly disconnect in a kilometer from the cap

when i reconnect my dd is standing still near the buoys, we lose, my team thinks i fulfilled my promise and trolled them

 

 

3 disconnects in 2 games, thanks for the amazing patch wg, will we have some compensation (haha)

Most of my horror stories would just be the 100 accounts I have of our DDs getting annihilated one way or another within 3 minutes of the game start and leaving the rest of our team up the creek without a paddle.
