Hi guys!

 

Well, I finally broke the 200k damage mark for the first time:

It was a loss. Sigh first time I get above 200k and it is a loss. Of course.

 

Well, I look on the bright side. It was in Zao, something I was hoping she'd do, and now the next milestone is 250k!

 

Fair winds and following seas captains! :Smile_honoring:

Nice work, bud.

 

Did the same for the first time last week as well, except was in Missouri.  Sure made for a nice payday.

Congrats :)  I am sure you will get there with a Win. Look forward to seeing a 300k mark ;)

Of course; that's how it goes, 

 

'Boy! I sure am doing pretty good today!" loss, loss, loss, etc...

 

'Seriously, that sucked. What was I just thinking?!?' win...

There is actually some evidence that you are more likely to find defeat in great personal achievements vice victory.  Friendly potatoes, who are unable to kill enemy ships but can otherwise survive, will create a target rich environment for player (because the potatoes can't kill reds), while simultaneously limiting red focus on said player (because the potatoes are surviving to take the heat off the player).  Hence, the player is able to rack up a very impressive damage total, even getting a Kraken here and there, as the potatoes eventually succumb all around.  But the player can't carry the entire team, so as the game winds down and the potatoes thin out, the player gets focused and killed.  

 

Side note.  The more I play, the more I notice some of the unicum players in my matches.  Win or lose, they are usually near the top of the boards.  And sometimes have a substantial points lead over the next on the board.  Again...win or lose.  I have a feeling some of their personal greats stats wise is when they topped out, but couldn't otherwise carry a potato team.

My first 200+ game was a loss as well, in Tirpitz. It sucks. I also recently got back to back Krakens on the test server in Shiratsuyu despite not having a single one on live in 2 years.

Why do you even play zao? Don't you know Conqueror is better in every way and there is no reason to play cruiser anymore?

Just curious, how much of that was fires?

I have the other results in the spoiler. But only 51k. The rest was all shells with the majority being AP damage.

Well done, and I can relate. All my 200K games so far have been losses. Won't post til I get 200K and the win.

That exact thing happens often to me in the Zao.... it just seems to be a potato magnet.

 

The majority of all my other 200k+ wins in other ships are almost always wins it seems... go figure.

 

I believe about 290k is my high and that was quite the battle in my Des Moines.
