I played a random match in my thunderer this morning. It was my first t10 ship and then I got the kremlin. In all, these are my only t10 ships. According to 3rd party stats,  reverse phone lookup I am a below average player, barely even touched average I guess. Even by wows profile stats, my WR is 50% last time I checked (a few days ago) and I am certain I have yet to hit the 2k battles mark.  nba reddit I racked up nearly 300k dmg on the thunderer today. How is it possible that this ship is not being removed from the armory??  pcpartpicker At the hands on my noob [edited]I racked up so much damage and got 6 achievements. Mind you the game I’m talking about was a lemmigtrain from the start. I just wanted to see what y’all have to say about this.

One game is a statistical anomaly still. Also, this should go into "Gameplay" or the battleship section, not historical discussion. Also, did you play against bots?

Since ships exist, they fight in fleets. Even today this proves very effective when you put the right ships on the right place.

Still there are people though, who use the word 'lemming train' in a warships game.

Apparently when they do what they have to, some people adress them as 'lemmings'.

I wonder if they know what this game (Lemmings) was about before placing posts like this.

'Stats' tell me nothing as they are for 90% depending on the players around you.

As the win rate is what your TEAM has been doing (win or lose).

Unless one is so arrogant to think the whole battle depends on him, that is not relevant.

One can even win a battle and get less XP as number one player than the number one of the losing team.

Then the Thunderer. At start of the british BB line there was the Conqueror.

The Conqueror could be fitted with the double barrelled 'super' guns or the lesser calibre, but higher firing rate triple barrelled guns.
It was pretty simple in the end no one put the big guns on, as the performance was lower to have them on.

So they were actually hardly used.

Now they are taken away from the Conqueror and WG introduced a 'new' BB. And guess what? :cap_look:

And a lemming rain today...(Well, last year :cap_tea:)

 

Can we now stop using that very stupid term in this game that should reflect war at sea?

Other terms equally or even more stupid are 'sniping' and 'sniper'.

It tells more about the user of the word than about practicing what is meant.

LOL What? Guess you missed the /s at the end, didn't you?

 

The only similarity of WoWs with naval warfare is the name of some ships.

Actually, pretty sure sailors are known to use similar language to the chat in most Random battles...

Also I'm wondering about the definition of Lemming train. I know Lemmings only as suicidal. Being grouped doesn't automatically means "suiciding"
