It can happen

Well, it can indeed happen!

 

During the opening minutes of a battle - with a bit of confusion going on - while the green team was capping A I did not pay the necessary attention and I collided with a Dallas. I was trying to pass of his stern and he made a hard break to port and... Well, ... ship happens. That I already knew. What I did not know however, is that the Kamikaze can be embedded in the Dallas.

 

I hit the Dallas a bit aft of the aft funnel and as you can see in the attached images the Kamikaze is well inside the Dallas that is dragging it along.

Notice the sea on the starboard side of the Kamikaze and the increasing speed of the Kamikaze. I thought that this was because I was still 1/4 ahead but no. I watched the replay and the Dallas was really dragging the Kamikaze along, like those mothers that grab their child from the hand and pull it while it is crying.

 

Normally, the Dallas would feel a bump and turn the Kamikaze to port, rub a bit and it would be going its way.

 

Anyway the Dallas dragged the Kamikaze for about 50 seconds and only when it turned to starboard we "disengaged"

If anyone takes a look at the replay, please, disregard my foul language in chat.

 

Enjoy

Saltface

Yeah, this can happen with bigger ships aswell. Ive been stuck couple of times even with BBs. Someone else is impaling you, and they dont stop. If the Dallas would have slowed down, you could have gotten free. But those players usually dont accnowledge that anything is their fault. They keep dragging you along because they are "right" :cap_old: Sometimes they even start to insult you :cap_fainting:

Happens more often than most people would think.

 

Especially infuriating when the larger ship just drags you with it (not even pushing, but bonafide dragging you along) and you try to tell him to slow down for just a couple seconds so you can get unstuck but they either ignore you or plain don't understand what's happening. Bonus points for one of the ships getting smacked by an enemy volley putting it so low that the little scraping damage results in a teamkill!

Yeah this happens. 

 

But I must be honest, the fact you are running windows vista with the classic taskbar is more intriguing to me. :cap_hmm:

Maybe he was "right" but he did a rather hard break to port instead of pushing in the cap to finish capping it. Or, as some reds were on their way he could had gone behind the island to the west of A.

I was on my way to pass west of the island as I was undetected to torp them as they would be pushing. He did a very unexpected maneuvering.

Happened to me as well, another ship embbed in me and you can't do anything. The idea this is about Windows Vista is a red herring. 

 

Edit : I've been using Win 10 since before re-joining WoWs.

ye getting stuck like that can be quite annoying... but at times it also takes a turn into the hilarious-to-absurd, especially when it creates "working" submarines.

 

...or when something like this happens.

This video is indeed funny as hell!

But it can start a vendetta (LOL)

 

Like...and this is only hypothetical....one takes down your name and if you are on same team ever again one sails next to you, sounds the horn, asks you in chat "do you remember me?", and....hypothetical...gives you his carte visite...if the form of a nicely timed salvo of torpedoes so you first hit your R button and then you get to see the back side of the card where it is written "with compliments of the management". Always hypothetically it would be for one a wonderful two pink games with some Rose Brut (a Bollinger par preferance), nice grapes and some brie.

 

Kids don't do this at home.

There is nothing wrong with a pocket square (unless it matches your tie), I would never wear a suit without one.

I make a very greedy misplay - start firing from smoke while very low on hp in order to force a repair before the second set of torps. One blind shot from enemy JB...

You see, Sasuke, when you put your ship vertically your guns will stick over the island for the chance of shooting gaijins at an angle they would not be expecting.
