Damn, that's a rough one. Hell of a game, though. 

                         Be Slow To Anger and Deliberate of Action. 

 However, When Moved to Violence, Strike Hard and Win at all Costs.

intertex's game reminded me of this one:

 

2-cap Domination on North:

Started out with taking an opportunistic torpedo spread on an Atago, devastating him while spotting a Fubuki and doing damage to the Fubuki while an allied cruiser took him out.  Pretty uneventful with only a couple hits here and there until at the 7:30min mark we were down to me, a mogami at 9k health and a tirpitz at 30k against their 3x montana (one full, one 56k, one 50k), a 30k zao, 13k Amagi and 45k Iowa. While their Zao was chasing our mogami and heading to our cap and our tirpitz was getting focused, I was left with the 5 battleships and just enough time to take out 4 of them and win on points if I hit 4/4 salvos. The first salvo (fired at 7:32) took out the 56k montana, second the full health montana and I started to have a hope. A big whiff on the 3rd at the Iowa (didn't think he was going to keep turning, but he did) led to me knowing the game was lost, but despite knowing at that I fired the last salvo on the remaining Montana just to see if I could get him and sure enough he went down with 3 seconds left in the match.

 

What made it so soul crushing was that I essentially lost it for us by poor mid-game play, had a chance to redeem myself by making 4 perfect devastating strikes and came so close to making it happen. 

 

And as an aside, doing 100% damage to a Montana in a single salvo feels pretty dang good.

not a loss, but a draw.  my highest dmg  game with minekazi. just today.   at the end  I was down to me down to nearly dead  and the carrier  vs  2 BB  both heavily damaged.          launched a salvo at one when the time ran out.

It makes it even worse that we lost on cap points and I was 5 feet from the last cap circle they had.  If only I hadn't used my boosts earlier!  So close :C

Nice game CH3CKM8, but isn't this thread about defeats (of the soul-crushing variety)?

This one one of my last matches before taking a hiatus from the game for a few months.

All massive torp losses.  I'll take another angle.  Serious gunning in this loss :(

Not even all that great of a game, except I'm impressed at how much MM RNG has been screwing my Gnenvy record with 7 straight losses now.

I think I just broke the Minekaze. Over 200k damage and 6 kills, that was a sad battle. I died 10s away from a draw

I got to knife fighting range of kongo when the game ended.     I am loving gnevny.   totally opposite of minekaze, but so much fun.

This game is killing my soul.....died ~7-8 minutes into the match, watch one of my teammates go afk and sail straight into the jaws of the enemy, watched a destroyer do stupid things (really, really stupid things,) saw my cruisers going broadside, all the time. While the enemy team worked together......(i'd have two more kills, if they hadn't been stolen.....)


I am insane. But I am not stupid. Maybe a little psychotic...
