The number of times I've went to rat PBs only to hear completly defeatist comments from the start, rats who kept repeating they couldn't "linefight", couldn't "play like the nats", yet there's often more rats with TMTDs than NOs with Invincibles in the other fleet. Sure, rats don't get Thundering Broadside but that doesn't mean we need to charge immediatly. I've seen rats shout for charges at close haul, I've seen rats give up way superior positions only because "they couldn't fight like nats".
The rats are their worst enemy. Until they lose that defeatist mentality, they won't be going anywhere.
