Poor communication was the problem with that DD in that battle, but it should have been said (if it hadn't already anyway) communicate what you are doing! In military terms, it is known as "Failure to Communicate" and it is an actionable offence. In game terms, it might mean a high aggression rating with a low naval rating . . .
U.S. TF commander Arleigh Burke became known as "Thirty One Knot Burke because just before daybreak, he would have all his ships get up to that speed in order to be ready for incoming orders to intercept possible enemy activity.
According to book that I read, his DD squadron was ordered to proceed to a certain location at best possible speed. Unfortunately, a DD had a paint brush or something in a pipe when it had been repaired and it's best possible speed was 31 knots. So he had a message sent that he was proceeding at 31 knots, hence the nickname.
Also, during a shore bombardment, the time to cease firing as (for example) 10 a.m. but when it came time to quit firing, one DD had two guns still loaded. Permission was asked to unload them through the muzzle and not the breach. Permission was granted and the guns were trained onto another island and fired. Whereupon, two 5 inch shell impacted at an ammo storage dump . . .
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
