It happens to even the best of us. You get good hits on many ships, lots of citadels and/or torpedo hits, lots of fires and floods but while you and your flank do well, the other side of the map, the team collapses and you're overwhelmed. You stare at the defeat screen, sometimes with high caliber, confederate, Kraken, or some combination of the three. 150k+ damage games are painful to lose, particularly as it could've been the first win of the day in the ship. Yet we all deal with it the same way, hit play and try again.

I was going to share a screenshot of my recent one, but I'm being told it goes over my .5 MB upload limit.

 

But what about you guys, had any losses that were rough to walk away from recently?

Painful defeat is seeing your clan members on my side of the match.

 

Also, literally sunk half the enemy team, still lost. Because ram me with a cactus deeply, that's why...

Don't have any personal great game examples handy.

However, had a couple games yesterday where the team had all or at least two of the caps and a massive point lead.

You take a guess what happened.

Those are just as painful.

Had an 8 kill Cleveland game a couple of years ago. We lost because a Pensacola on a sliver of health decided to Yolo with one minute left in the game. We barely lost on points.

Had one last night in my Kidd. 

Was just melting everything I met.  Surrounded by BB's(4) on all sides of my smoke had them all under 6km ranges just melting broadsides. 

 

Sunk a 2 of them, had amagi broadside to my 5 inchers just smaking off 2k health every couple of seconds. 

 

See all my team members just sink one after the other, see the last guy go and i caught the start of "YOU ARE THE LAST HOPE" 

 

And i crapyou not, I could of pulled that win out of the defeat.. But the second my last friendly sunk and i heard the  YOU ARE THE.... 

 

Game ended on points.. :(

Getting my damage and kill records in my Montana about 3 weeks ago.  280k damage, 7 kills and 2 captures is not enough to carry a team it seems.

This one was extra painful because I just needed to survive another 20 seconds for a Solo Warrior
