Sunday evening working on getting that sweet double xp. Decide to take the Udaloi out, load into domination mode on Two Brothers, Not many destroyers but Tier 10 carriers and Oh look at that a wild Noster in a Tier 10 German BB this should be interesting match.

0a0KxVO.jpgTook 4 torpedoes from two torp squadrons while trying to cap A and hid from a near by enemy Des Moines at the same time. Which didn't end well for my ship and the rest of the team went full on camp mode. Well except Notser who did his best and came out on top of a losing team.

Fine, I screwed up and died needlessly but I know I can do better. Lets try again, this time with more feeling and less dying. 

Time to get serious,

Next game Islands of Ice, Domination mode again and an even mix of Tier 8s an 9s. Then the storm hit and things got crazy.

This is the most damage I've ever done in one game.

Ships keep showing their broad sides or running into my torpedoes. Most of the damage was done around B cap and it was an epic battle. 8 of those citadel hits where on a Kutuzov who decided to show his broadside at less than 8k and not focus on the destroyers on his starboard side was a good idea.

Moral of this story; never under estimate a highly motivated captain who is allowed to enter rage mode. :izmena:

Wow. Impressive. I have never done even close to that, not in any ship, let alone Udaloi and Khabarovsk. Now I shall try! :izmena:

Great game, very impressive; especially taking out a Russian cruiser like that, they are very hard. Khab will reward you even more.

Man I'm having a hard time adjusting to Udaloi, ok ok to be fair i haven't fully upgraded her yet...  but i find her pretty slow for a Ru DD and gawd that turning radius blows.. should i invest in improve rudder? Please tell me she gets better or at least a little faster with upgrades. Will be hunkering down and just earning some credits to upgrade her up.

Yes She gets better with up grades. A rudder shift mod will help her turn better. But Its the captain skills that really make her shine. Get BFT and AFT as soon as possible so you can fire faster and from longer ranges. If you can help it keep the big ship at almost max range and just rain HE on them and switch to AP if you can get a broadside on shot at their super structure. You need to think of the Udaloi as a small cruiser without a citadel not as a stealth destroyer. Hope this helps.

Funnily enough RSB, your untimely death made it into Notser's latest video detailing the FDG, he had an awesome match, as you can tell.

The moment I saw a Notser video in my subscription list reviewing the FDG I was worried, than I see its a match on Two Brothers and I knew what was coming. Imagine my shame when he called me out, :facepalm:

But those two videos have had some interesting side effects, random people in game are saying hi to me and complementing my destroyer game which is nice.
