Welp, in that case, I'm off to bed. My most kills in a game, ever.

(Sometimes the potatoes are on the other team... yes you just ate a torpedo salvo... no, don't use WASD hack... I'm sure the best response is to continue in a straight line...)

Certainly didn't have anything to do with the fact that you were using a gamebreaking OP ship that effectively monsters the lower to mid tiers. Nope absolutely not.

I don't make the rules, buddy. I just play by 'em.

Should I sell it?

But in all seriousness, yeah, sure, sometimes when I load up a T8 and get a potato team and get slain by a Yamato 3 games in a row and then I go back to a T7 ship and get bottom tiered AGAIN and slaughtered by T9 pros many games in a row I need something to keep me enthused...

True, getting curb stomped in the higher tiers is definitely annoying and demoralizing, though I still laugh whenever I set fire to a Conqueror in my Zao. 

But try getting that result with a Mitsuki or the Minekaze. The Kamikaze R is still a broken ship, like the Belfast and the Kutuzov, one of those with the right amount of potatoes/bots on both teams and the player can absolutely dominate.

I have no doubt that many players could get a Kraken if everyone else in the game is a bot and at 4 in the morning that's a possibility, considering you said they continued to sail in a straight line after encountering a salvo of torps.

Thanks for explaining for I did not know any of this.

I am grateful for your chastisement and correction.

I'm certainly a better and wiser person for your observations.

Your sarcasm is duly noted. Thank you for accepting the services of Bait4You.

Also well done on killing half the enemy team.

LOL!

Yeah it was one of those rare 14 players a side game.

You don't see them that often any more.

Yep, as I said, monsters the lower to mid tiers. I don't mind if people play Belfast, Kamikaze R or even Kutuzov, they own them and they have a right to play them. But getting 5, 6, 7, or even 8 kills is considerably easier than the non gamebreaking ships.

I'd imagine it would also very easy to TK your entire team with a Kitakami, it's just that WG won't let people test that theory out anymore.

to be honest, it used to be much more easy to get monster kills when people still had no idea how to play the game in low/mid tiers, now the middle tiers are flushed with fishing teams, seal clubbers and nubs

 

(and don't worry about meeting me in a Belfast or MK, I sold them both)

Eh, the scariest ship I have to worry about at the moment would be the Bourgogne. One was in a match on the enemy team where it did actually break the game, by firing an entire HE broadside straight through a mountain range. I detonated and then the entire game crashed.

So, fun times.:cap_haloween:

Bbbut my Mutsuki WTR is almost double of my Kamikaze wtr... I must be a really bad kamikaze player...

I have only one question. Why were you playing WoWs at 4 in the morning?!?!

I have no circadian rhythm. Sometimes I'm awake for 24 hours at a time.
