Yup. There are so many of those days where I'm trying to get that first win on a ship and I'll be in first place 3 games in a row doing like 140k damage and losing, then the next match I'll do like 43k with no kills and accomplished nothing for the team and it will be the win.

If the other players are worse at dealing damage, then someone will be able to pick up the slack.

Seems to be part of the mind game mixed in ...

For every team slated to lose big, there are one or two on that team with exceptionally good RNG..  Citadel after citadel..  Fire chance around 100%.

If they can stay alive long enough, they can put a huge dent in the red team.

Unless the enemy team gets real stupid at the end...

Same here, most of those win are either got deleted by enemy BB with one salvo at the beginning.

Or, battle ends before doing enough damage. Sometime the battle will just end early with no reason. (No cap, remain enemies, point not 1000)

My friends' experience in WoT too.

Rarely do you come across a good team that you spawn into a match with either they are too good for you to make a decent contribution too or they are underwhelmingly bad for you to carry them.

I don't think that saying is true. Enemy Takao had an epic battle against tier 10s and won.

No I had contributed to the battle but not in a damage count. Usually the matches I have next to nothing in damage done are the matches where I've taken 2+ million damage shot at me, but that doesn't pay for crap. I'll get dreadnought that match and barely get 30-40k dmg.

 

Just the way it is. I'm a punching bag and get diddly for it.

When you win you're actively running the fun of those playing just for fun.

Makes sense if your team isn't performing well then it gives you more opportunities to rack up big damage. Why seemingly "good" games are so often defeats.

             I was in a match like 2 months ago that I won but in the enemy team there was a T10 CV that got 3.7k base exp on the frickin LOSS  !! 

 

 I felt bad for him, had to compliment him.

Yes; unfortunately for me that player is often red!

 Have you been playing battleships long now?

And I'm OK with that, considering the percentage of matches I'm in when they ruin MY fun!

So often, in fact, that someone in the DD section has made a post just for great games you had that were defeats.

The post is like 20 pages long now.

My most recent heartbreaker was my first 200k+ game in my Zaō. I tried so hard, but in the end, my team could not pull out a win.

In this game there is a reason for that.  If you play on a team with a bunch of yolo players and play smart you will often do well.  The yolo play will grab all the attention and to you take low risk shots until they get to you.  On the flip side a smart team players are sharing in the damage.

Looks like the enemy team did work, but it just sucks to lose like that. RIP

If wows numbers was correct last night, this will be #12. I would have had top 10 (i think #8) if i had literally just got another overpen or anything else to add up to 1500 damage lol.
