You know, where you get detonated at the start, and your team loses, or you run aground, and your team loses, or you do VERY well (2-3 enemy ships sunk, +/- 100k damage) and STILL lose?

 

Yeah, I am doing poorly, then great, then poorly, then above average...  And yet, still losing.

 

But I am still having fun.  However, I feel bad for my teammates when I make stupid rookie mistakes.

Totally. My first game in my shiny new Kii was a 128k damage loss:

Then, later on last night I had an epic Akizuki game to make up for some lackluster games prior:

Just goes to show that even heartbreaks can lead to awesomeness.

OP, seems like a win/win to me.  1) You're still having fun.  Without that why play the game?  and 2) You feel bad when you make a mistake that hurts your team. That tells me you still care about improving and you feel a sense of teamwork, thus making you a growing asset to any team.  Keep those two points functioning and the rest is just statistical gibberish.

Yes, oh yes.

 

At the moment, it's a story of getting stuck on teams that are either AFK, didn't load, or would have in many cases been more useful AFK, and getting nothing to show for it no matter how good or bad my game actually was.

I've lost battles with 7 kills and over 150k damage with Kamikaze. 

If there force isn't with you there's nothing you can do.

I hate when it happens.  Mainly because it makes me start rethinking the match and wondering what I needed to do even better, in a good game to have pulled off the win...  For instance one that stands out for me was a 163k damage game with Dreadnought, fireproof, Kraken, devastating strike, high caliber, confederate.  In the USS Texas.  Made 591k credits on the loss though. 

Second one was a game in my Belfast.  182k damage, Witherer, Arsonist, High Caliber, and Confederate awards.  640k credits on that one though.

I generally do above average damage, but I'm not very often in position where I can carry. I've been on a downhill slide for losses for about 2 weeks now. Still at 53%, but won't be at this rate.

Tell me about it.  It took me 4 games in my shiny new Zao to get a win... though on the bright side, I'm averaging 108k dmg over those 4 games, so I must be doing something right (just not winning).

My Großer Kurfürst is STILL not the Bismarck for me, and yes I know, my Bismarck Captain is a 17 pointer while my GK's is 14 points, but he's got the Advanced Firing Training AND the Manual Secondaries, so...  I can do some nasty damage with it.

 

I just get impatient.  It seems as if my Bismarck works for me better.  But I will NOT GIVE UP!

This is a bad feeling this game can generate. The frustration of making a mistake that may cause your team to lose the battle.

 

This match comes to mind every time I think about playing WoWs since it happened yesterday.

I still feel frustrated for not finishing off that Bayern when he had 9k hp at the start. At the end, our team was less than 10 points behind and we lost when time ran out. The Bayern survived with less than 4k hp and only the Kamikaze wouldn't be enough to win the game for the enemy. If only that Bayern was dead we would have enough points to win, but who knows...
