I don’t know if todays’ Throw was deliberate or accidental but we’ll take it. A Throw’s a Throw, after all.

  2. Wishing you best of luck for Sunday

    • And soft toilet paper, comfortable seat and a reliable WiFi for a tablet while you’re in the loo all Saturday evening.😅😅😅

    • Highly recommend a cold (chilled) ham/cheese/tomato sandwich after. (had a false positive a few years back, enjoyed my ice cold sandwiches three times in the same year)

  3. “Seven players per side” yes, never change Saltmine Overlord.

  4. 40 seconds in and Jingles thinks this match is 7-a-side. Never change old man 😀

  5. This smells like the Benson throwing on purpose for the shit his team put him through lol

    • Nah, this is a 42% player doing what 42% players do.

    • @axilleastsoulas1036

      Feels about right. Run your lips and you get your comeuppance.

    • I checked his stats out of curiousity and it’s actually a new player (less than 300 random battles and only 2 ranked battle).

    • @Foxtrot_UniformCharlieKilo

      ​@tsu7206 ya mentioned that it was a new player, and for a second, I thought it was me cause I sont play randoms thst much, I’m new to ranked, and played mostly the Benson. Never mind that my 2nd battle in ranked which was in a Benson, was a well fought win on the back of 3 DDs my self included. I had to go so far as to check the names to clear my mind

  6. I believe it was a mutiny.

  7. @Mithril_Antimarr

    Is it just me or did this guy not use priority target during the battle for his secondaries? He clearly had the skill just didn’t appear to select targets to improve secondary accuracy?

  8. Just a quick note. The removal of the safety procedures on British warships appears to be a strictly WW1 issue. There was a massive kerfuffle after the Battle of Jutland where it was found that flash doors were being left open and charges were being improperly stored. The loss of the Hood was really down to some of the worst bad luck I’ve ever seen. Literally everything that could go wrong, did go wrong with the whole operation. The final nail in the coffin being a hit below the armoured belt that detonated her secondary then primary magazines.

    • I mean, not quite everything that could go wrong. PoW got home. The Sea state certainly didn’t help though

      Interestingly, the RNs obsessions with Anti-Flash was part of the reason the quad turret on the KGVs weren’t as reliable as would have been hoped.

      Though as pointed out in Drachs interview episode on the design, by mid war late 42-43 were as good as any other turret

    • @@wierdalien1 I honestly think the fact that the Bismark shell that struck PoW below the waterline didn’t explode is probably on only bright spot in the whole affair.

    • @@LoneWolf-rc4go not strictly fair, the PoW’s underwater hit on Bismarck is what eventually sent her to the bottom

    • this is correct – the hood did not sink due to flash doors being left open, that operational failure was fixed by 1917

    • Also, wasn’t the shell that blew up the Hood from the Prinz Eugen’s 8″ guns? I’m pretty sure I read that somewhere.

  9. @lexmaximaguy8788

    That was a throw out of spite for his team

    • Would be interesting to know why the Benson was getting slagged of. Maybe this isn’t the first time they have done it. Maybe they said from the start that they would do it, if it came down to just them.

  10. You’re probably not going to see this but, your videos Mr. Jingles are one of the very few things that I look forward to, and truly enjoy. Your insightful commentary, and witty humor have really have helped me get through some tough times. Thank you so much. ❤

  11. @thomasembleton1467

    Actually jingles it took 5 salvos for Bismarck to hit hood vs PoW scoring a hit on the sixth! Not bad for PoW as she still had hard workers on her

    • Correction: Bismarck hit Hood with her 3rd salvo on the main rangefinder, the 4th was a straddle and then the 5th was the one that destroyed her… so yeah 3 salvos, not 5

  12. its weird how people invest a 4 point skill for secondaries and never actually activating it

  13. That guy who called out the Benson at the start seems to have had it right. LOL! Cheers Jingles.

  14. Picks secondary build, doesn’t use manual secondaries…

  15. Wow, Jingles sits down to give us all a history, service and engagement lesson and gets just about every ‘fact’ wrong. It’s good to see that some things never change.

    • To be fair there is a lot of myth about the navy that is plain wrong.

    • I think I lost count of how many brain cells i lost during that whole gunnery discussion… which can be best summarised as “impressive, everything you said is wrong”… honestly, jingles is an amazing man, but the amount of inaccurate stuff this time made me close the video

  16. @duncanhamilton5841

    You’ve gone a bit Max Hasting here old chap, need to correct/adjust some of the myths:
    – Hood’s doors weren’t open, that practice was completely stamped out after Jutland. She was under-armoured and seems to have taken a 1 in a million hit (Drach did a video on this).
    – German gunnery was better in 1914 because they had far better optics thanks to a certain Herr K Zeiss. Radar wasn’t a thing in 1916. They also had visual advantage as I think Beatty had the sun to his back?
    – The shiny-ship thing was only part of the lack of training on gunnery – Beatty, for all his faults, IIRC was never given space or time to do gunnery practice with the battlecruiser squadron.
    – the lack of training, plus the generally poor optics, equalled poor accuracy = just lob more shit downrange
    – Beatty was zerg rushing with battlecruisers, like a total spanner.
    – German ship’s sub-division was more comprehensive than the British, in part due to design philosophy brought about by the British need to sail vast distances around the Empire.
    – The Bismarck class (and the others) carried on this excessive subdivision from the WW1 designs because the German designers had picked up from where they’d left off in 1918. Some theories have been put forward that whilst it made the thing an absolute tank, it made for a difficult fighting platform.

  17. *_NO_* Jingles. That was *_NOT_* why Hood exploded.

  18. Drachinifel did an analysis on why the Hood blew up. At the high speed it was running at, it produced a significant bow wave. This wave was high at the bow but low at the middle exposing the bottom of the belt armor. A lucky shell from the Bismark struck this area and penetrated into the secondary magazine setting it off. The secondary magazine was directly adjacent to the main aft magazine and then boom.

    • Well i would never dispute drach in a naval decision. But i feel pretty confident 20-30 of water would do fuck all to the outcome of a battleship grade shell hitting that location.

  19. The issues with British gunnery in WW1 were serious but the Royal Navy did realize in its opening engagements like the Falkland Islands and Heligoland Bight and worked to fix it.

    The problem was that while Scapa Flow was big enough to practice gunnery in but the battlecruisers, in the Firth of Forth, would have to sail into the North Sea to practice. Too risky with the German fleet possibly coming out and submarines all over. This lead to the choice to prioritize rate of fire via removing anti flash measures.

    The Grand fleet was accurate at Jutland, with the Queen Elizabeth class landing some first salvo straddles with extremely tight groupings on Hipper. The battlecruisers really couldn’t hit much.

    By WW2 British gunnery, from the start at the River Plate and onwards was good. Later bolstered by some early adoption of radar fire control.

    Warspite famously scored one of the longest ranged naval gunnery hits ever at Calabria, Duke of York crippled Scharnhorst from great distance at North Cape and Mediterranean DD and CL fights tending to go the Royal Navy’s way, it was certainly a lessons learnt. Warships are for killing, not looking good.

  20. About the issue of RN gunnery, I’ve read the complete opposite. That actually the standard was quite good, the issue was the BCF under Beatty had been moved to the Firth of Forth and obviously due to it being right by Edinburgh the crews couldn’t conduct gunnery practice at anchor as that would rather annoy quite a few people and going out to sea was too risky, so Beatty (unofficially AFAIK) had crews leave doors open and charges stacked to try increase rate of fire. Admiral Hood’s battlecruisers didn’t have that issue I believe as he kept things rather more ship shape and had just finished his squadron’s rotation with the Grand Fleet for gunnery training. As for why they blew up, battlecruisers getting shot at by battleships is not a good thing.
    And Hood’s demise, at least by Drachinifel’s reckoning, was as she turned to bring X and Y turrets to bear a 15″ shell managed to slip into a trough, hit under the armour belt and boom.
