Things are going really intense, ships are sinking left and right. Then after the melee your team somehow comes out on top and process to win the match. Then you feel kinda like this:

Sometimes, when you have one cap and the enemy has two and they attack one by one into the corner your team has gotten in to and they throw their ships away.  Huddling into a corner is like 4d badplay.

It's called luck, happenstance, serendipity... I mean x% of battles you can sit afk AND WIN.

Ive been in a battle we was winning strongly and had around 7 friendly ships left and almost the end of the battle so i decided to go in strong and take some enemy ships out before the end.

I got into a bad situation and looked for some support.

There was 1 friendly left he died i died we lost the battle i never realised it had gone so wrong so fast.

You can be way ahead and a sneaky DD gets on your cap and all are too far away to stop it.  Happens all the time.

If the battle was lost anyway then you did the right thing--yolo without the help of this lamer team and take as many with you as you can. No need to make excuses for that!

But if you went at that before it was clearly a lost battle, then bad on you.

Happens lots. Yup.  Part of the game. Very depressing when your team is nicely ahead and gets capped in this way. There are DDs captains that cultivate this kinda thing and are good at it. Sneaky guys but it's fair and I give em credit for it. Especially if they are on my team.

Sometimes it’s just a Clueless Cleveland...

Basically sailed from our spawn to the Red’s cap by a mildly roundabout route.

Didn’t do much, wasn’t spotted much...

’Hey look, the cap is open... la-de-da...’

’Wut?!? Everyone’s dead but me...?!?’

Victory jingle.

‘WUT x inf...???

Total contribution in what was also my first Solo Warrior?

One shell hit on a destroyer, and 12 planes shot down in the Red Ryujo’s desperate attempt to reset the cap.

Sea of Fortune. Everyone unusually rushes into the caps, game ends in a quick few minutes and my team happened to be the one with the better shots. I just barely took B cap and went, "Did taking B somehow win us the game or something?".

That's a blessing. You don't want to over analyze every match. Ending up ruining the game.

I had one yesterday which completely caught me by surprise. Didn't have a single second to pay attention to much as was in the New Orleans playing anti-DD support to our BBs - we crushed one flank 2 caps a side - we are 6 ships up, and had a whole host of ships encounter 5 of their BBs - suddenly a guy in a Richelieu rams a full health Missouri and everything switches - we lose all our other ships but manage to take out a couple of BBs - but looking grim at 2 vs 6 of them - I manage to catch a Neptune with my last radar - land a bunch of cits - he flees and then tries to ambush me, hides in smoke - managed to follow his progression into smoke as he grounds - land a kill, then notice my ally is dead, see an Algerie about to go out of LOS and snap a shot off with my rear turret - double citadel kill - and the game freezes and I'm thinking oh crap how did we lose this from where we were - and then realize its the victory screen. Wasn't a great game, but I guess RNG loved me at the right time for a change. The number of times It happens due to the run out of points unexpected win/loss is also pretty surprising.

Agree. I claim no skill. In fact I claim anti-skill (i.e. skilled in the lack of skill) given my profile so far and am only just starting to string together decent matches (Jianwei is just horrible - will be glad to be past it).
