Hey guys!  I've been seeing quite a few posts lately where people get Kraken, High Caliber, Confederate, etc. and still lose.  Post your most insane defeat here! (I guess victories too, but those aren't as fun to see) 

 

No screenshots?  No problem!  Just write a story, though try not to embellish too much.

This isn't my worst but a good example of the lose but did all you could.  If I remember right I was about a hair from getting a kraken, shots inbound at one of the reds and time expired. In a way the worst of it is I earned more base xp on the losing side than the top scorer on the winning side. :fish_palm:
I think my worst that I can recall was similar with a confederate, high caliber, few devastating strikes, kraken (6 kills), dreadnought, few close quarters expert, and about 180~190k damage on my Bismarck. That one still stings a bit.
Sometimes you just can't "carry harder", or at least not anymore than you already did.

My most epic defeat happened on Land of Fire while sailing my new Tirpitz. I spent my time trying to carry my suicidal team to victory while holding C and taking B from two Destroyers. I ran out of time to sink the last two enemy ships, an almost dead Edinburgh and a half HP New Mex. This game is still my most damage done record and given 2 more minutes I could have collected a Solo Warrior. Enemy team won the game on time and by 20 some points.

I sometimes laugh at the phrase "Carry Harder" because this game proved that there are limits to how much a player can carry. I could not do enough damage fast enough to keep sinking the ship coming at me. I was limited by Gun range, Gun Reloads, and by the Game Clock itself. Sometimes you just do the very best you can and except the results you can achieve.

3rd Highest fuso damage in Ranked NA. Wouldve been over 200k if not for user input errors (im a potato.)
As well as let's kill 8 different ships and still lose because the rest of my team(11 others) cannot beat 3.

Lastly, that xp would be a lot more impressive if CVs could mount more than 4 signal flags....and if we won.

You'd have won if you broke 300K.  Carry harder.  XD

Lets see:

Strike Ranger (me) vs. Saipan (enemy) on the Neighbors map
 

>I immediately find the enemy CV, charging out ahead of his destroyers, and nuke him

>"Liquidator"

>Proceed to get 5 more kills (4 with DoT), and racking-up 220k damage over the entire enemy team

>I look at the score bar to see how much we're winning by

>We're down one ship: It's me and a Gnevny versus a Gneisenau, a Mahan, and a cruiser of some sort. I'll say it was a Pensacola, 'cause it really isn't important.

>Gnevny suicide-charges the Gneisenau and attempts to ram.

>Gnevny gets Fun and Engaged

>Me versus 3 enemies
>I sink the Gneisenau (finally), and then start re-arming my squads to take on the Pensacola

>A Wild Mahan Appeared

>I go immediately to Brown Alert

>The Wild Mahan has Fled

>Whut?

>Mahan captures the last point we had

>I make a valiant effort to go and try to capture A

>The game times out right as I'm about to capture A

>FML
