HELLO LADIES and GENTS! THANKS FOR OPENING THIS THREAD

 

Incompetent players and/or freak circumstances... Love em or Hate em, they are an undeniable part of any MMO experience and will not be going away soon or at all... Whether we won or lost and/or sank and took the mouse and keyboard on a sub-orbital trajectory, it's always healthy to look back at these tales and just laugh it off... :teethhappy:

 

Most of us might already know of the tale of a certain CV player who refused to move his boat because he doesn't have to because he's a Carrier and has planes... So, what's yours??

 

I'll start off with mine... It was in the Two Brothers map in my Miyogi and my team (from the South) was getting pushed back and getting our a**es handed over so I had to book it by going north through the narrows in the center... While I was retreating I was being pelted with HE fire but I managed to reach the northern mouth (with barely 1000HP) only to find a low health enemy cruiser waiting. We were directly broadsides at each other so I turned my guns to him and opened a salvo which didn't kill him :ohmy:... and I knew that was it because it takes 30secs for the next round and my secondaries were not hitting enough... When suddenly I noticed a friendly DD(or was it a cruiser) was right directly behind the enemy and opened a torpedo salvo which killed him... and I just had to type a Thank you:teethhappy: to the player for the save... Just while I was still typing I just noticed that he didn't fire 1 salvo but 3 and just when I hit Enter... *BOOM!!blublublublub*...He even replied "You're welcome" after that... Not mad though, I was more dumbstruck as to how the heck did that happen? :amazed:

So that's it... Now to you guys! What's your story???

Guess your ship got scuttled, lol,

 

i was on my zuiho and it was late game where a dd was chasing after me, it got to the point we were in CQC, i noticed that a torp spread was heading towards be but the triangles were blue, i thought it was a bug, and it dawned on me that earlier i had send my TB to hit the dd and i forgot about them, but i died before my own torps hit me, lol

5 minutes into the battle. Using a Mutsuki... Spotted a full health Atago, 9 km away. Fired all of my torps. The Atago managed to dodge them all... Except one... Boom!!!! [player] received "Detonation". I received "Devastating Strike"... Hell Yeah! 6 mins later... Fired a salvo of torps randomly into a small gap... Received "Double Strike"... Holy F***ing Vadim!...

Well I guess you love your boat so much I guess it's kind of a "I'd rather sink my own ship rather than someone else" thing... :)

Now there's a real "Blind Fire" moment right here! :playing:

The Destroyer Run

 

2 mutsukis and a minekaze end up behind enemy lines and chase down the carrier

we managed to sink her after surviving countless air raids and rain from pursuing CAs

we did not make it back alive after completing the mission though.

 

it was in the map like two brothers but smaller.

Was in a game on  zuhio where I had lost all my planes and I mean all...we were ahead of points and I was the only survivor at full hp...noticed a furutaka closing in so I set the direction on waypoint so he cant finish me while I left because I had to do some errand irl...stand up when I realized the furutaka has only 200HP left...sat down and started to manually control my ship evading his salvos...and moving towards his position while taking more fire, repaired with hp left not enough to stand a torp...he torped and luckily I managed to dodged em in between....he tried to salvo but mostly missed, probably was panic unexpecting...I got in range and pew pew pew secondary fired sinking him...press Enter, press Tab and typed HAHAHAHAHAHA...game ended and we won lol...

 

Other than that Ive seen a "battle CV" in two brothers who went ahead of me like he was a CA, I was baffled lol

There was a time where I was in my Fletcher and my div-mate, who was in a Fubuki, was engaging a CA at close range while hiding in his own smoke. The CA was desperate to get him and went closer to his smoke. I made my approach to help him and as I thought his smoke is about to fade and he began accelerating away, I launched my torpedoes at the direction where the guide dictated the CA will get hit and it was also the direction where my div-mate was.

 

There I realized that my presumptions were wrong, his smoke was not really fading and he was still stationary. But more importantly, I killed the CA and saved my div-mate being killed by the enemy.... by killing him first. And my div-mate was Saito-Himea. :trollface:

One of the few funny event that happen to me was when I was in a div with Syanda and Halken Sky in my Minekaze.

 

Game started on Two Brothers, and I decided to sneak up on the enemy through the middle after our planes spotted their fleet heading one direction. As I got close to the middle, I prepared for any sudden encounter with enemy destroyers who was trying the same. I was right, not one but TWO destroyers came up the middle from the other team.

 

Me: "OMG FIRE EVERYTHING!!!!"

Windforce launched all 3 salvos of torpedoes at the incoming destroyers.

Both destroyers split east and west.

The one who split east took the full brunt of the torpedo salvo and died.

The one who split west got him/herself stuck at the side of the passage.

With my torpedoes still on reload, knowing he was going to torpedo me sooner or later, I shouted: "RAMMING SPEED"

He/she was probably too shocked to shoot as he/she never fired a shot.

And so I sailed full speed into the side of the other destroyers, blowing it up, and I survived cause I was a higher tier destroyer.

Windforce : Received "Die Hard"

(I forgot what else I did after that but I think I managed to sink another ship before dying)

 

Syanda and Halken were laughing like crazy and the enemy was facepalming saying "Noob DD"

in my Cleveland

 

saw a Mogami just over a island, range 7km circling.

speed up and turn into her, switch to AP, approaching fast, and when I am close in to 5 km....

fires full salvo of 6" AP to her citadel, 4 citadel hit and 6 penetration, loose 70% of her health

she return fire, all have low damage.:trollface:

fires another full salvo after reload, killed! :izmena:  

 

saw a mutsuki, and I beached, 

she fires torpedo while I am backing up

I switch to full speed ahead fast, and hard to starboard

dodged all the torps (closest torp is near 3-4m at my stern):B *dat skill+ reaction*

switched to HE while I am dodging, fires 3 salvo of back gun, *kill secured* :bajan:

 

saw enemy fubuki, fire 2-3 salvo of all 12 gun at her, bring her down to 1/10 health, but she escaped, got sunk later

 

and than another DD, bring down her health to ~1000, and than burn her to death 

 

 

after 20sec, I turn in back to where I beached, engage a Nagato 1v1, nearly kill her and game ends 

 

 

of course :medal::medal::medal:, best game in WOWS

the weirdest thing I've ever done is firing HE from my battleship New Mexico, for I've just gotta shake off a DD earlier to the enemy Fuso...

Next thing I know is once I load AP to deal with another Pepsi-Cola and succeeded, I got double strike...

 

Fearless on my...

Breath...

 

And I was listening to this song, TeamSpeaking as crazy and this lucky double strike hits... Nice...
And obvious that this Fuso guy is focus on using "Incoming Alert" rather than spending on High Alert skill...

See a friend in a Kongo on the opposite team - 21 Km out, I'm in my Colorado - send up the Scout Plane and start a little smack talk in Chat:

 

Me: 'Give me your Citadels - I have some fresh AP loaded for you'

Friend: 'witty retort'

(Fire a full salvo)

.

.

.

.

.

3 Citadels! (he just avoided getting insta-sunk)

Friend: 'Hey Demon! That's just not Cricket!'

(he then turned tail and ran away to try and repair)
