Had a fun game with the Kuma again last night. Managed to sink a Phoenix whose player pro'ly left the game because it was unresponsive. Sank her with a full torpedo salvo. I got promptly sunk by her team mates hehehehe
Great game with the Albany last night, too! Started out as oy vey with me eating some torps from a Tenryu, then lots of shells from a Clemson I think and another cruiser. Had my rudder damaged and on fire with repair crew still offline. Steaming in circles but my team mates - in their glorious individuality hehehe - managed to keep the enemy's attention off me. When I was repaired, I was only a 1000 hit points left I think, just a single salvo and I'm done.
With that state, I managed to sink three cruisers in quick succession which were all shooting at my other team mates, until I got sunk by an enemy DD's guns. Our team won the battle.
Yesterday, my mood at the office was bad, and so I did some online retail therapy by plonking real money for some doubloons - yes, not a sound financial move on my part.
Anyhow, my exchange credits were running low already and besides, I could really need some doubloons to convert the XP from my elite ships to free XP. And so I did, and awash with credits and much free XP, plonked down to buy a Mikasa which was on special discount sale, a Myogi with all the bells and whistles, and upgraded a few other ships as well. I played the Myogi and that's where I learned to use the recon plane. WOW! Myogi in upgraded form isn't bad. I managed to survive the battle and able to contribute to the team's victory. Slow as hell to steer but isn't as bad as the Kawachi. I think I'll sell off the Kawachi later since I won't be using her that much anymore. I'm still keeping some of my low tier elite ships because I am not so skilled fighting with other more experienced players in high tier ships (my Atago is a hotel as a result hahahahahahahahaha!).
