Very useful thank you, especially Part 2. 

 

With 3.6K DD games under my belt I should know the theory and perform like a hero crumble under pressure and make stupid mistakes!  :Smile_izmena:

 

The heat of battle I guess. I also feel too obliged to please my teammates especially at the start of battles which can lead to disappointing outcomes for everyone. :fish_palm:

 

When I keep calm though, yeh, I can be a :Smile_medal: haha!

Heh, the theory part is the easiest, putting it into practice every match... I we all wished we perform like hero's - I seem to get my fair share of "humbling experiences!" 

 

Part 1, I intentionally made very basic for newer players. Similar to my Game settings video, except in the setting video, i have come across players with 3000 games who had no idea about resizing mini map, adding ship names to the mini map, or about the adaptive interface to improve targeting data ..

 

Making these tips video's, I have had to force myself to try remember how much i did not know some 13000+ games ago - This game is actually pretty darned complicated!

The charts from the Part 1 Video for anyone who might find them useful ...

printing these off and keeping them handy can aid your survival... I did this for the radar forever - was far worse before WG standardized some of the ranges ...
