Although it's clear your best is still not great and you can always improve, this is the reason I uninstalled.

I got tired of my division killing 10 ships between us and having my team still manage to lose. I mean, I have a game where I sunk 9 ships myself AND MY TEAM STILL LOST.

WG have done a great job of nullifying the positive effects one person can have on the game, so that bad players still feel valued and can spend money.

Understandable....but your game isn't anywhere close to others disappointments.   There is a big difference in carrying a team verses trying to carrying a lost cause...just do your best and move on.

That was no reason to uninstall the game.  Yea I get mad but I've never uninstalled.  I just take long breaks.

VR,

The sad thing is I wasn't even trying to carry.  I was just doing my own thing.  I even have the chat box completely disabled so I don't have to listen to the toxic gas when it comes.  I've been playing all day lol I just deal with it.  This is why I quit caring about my statistics.

So, two points.   You cut yourself off of info...it's salty sometimes, but sometimes there's good info in chat.  2...not caring about your stats...so how do you track your progress to improve your game...and I'm not talking about Win rate....stats on accuracy, capture/defend, avg damage and the most important...AVG XP.    These stats help you in determining if you're really helping a team or just being carried.

I actually find that I do better at the game with no chat box.  The chat box for me is just a huge distraction.  I generally tend to go where the rest of the team is going unless its a Domination.  I can usually see what everybody else is doing.  Plus having chat box disabled is helping and preventing me from being a complete ***** back at the player being toxic.  Just better for me to avoid that all together lol.

Not trying to be disrespectful, but that is call LEMMING...not a good tactic and usually leads to loses.   There is a huge difference in moving to the objective with some, and moving with the herd to oblivion and shame.

It is not damage done or the best that you can do. It is capped points to win the game you only had one assisted cap. See you can farm damage all day long and only get two kills and still lose.

I was one of 4 dds that match, the other dds could have capped but a dd player can't always rush in and cap a point.  I wont always want to rush into an immediate death.  Then that would be no good.  If I feel I can cap and get away with it then yes I'll cap if not then I'm out.

I understand...

But in Tier 1 a single player CAN make a difference...

I expected bigger numbers to be honest. Here is what my best usually looks like.

What’s wrong with finishing top on a losing team?  Would you prefer to rank lower in a loss?  I take issue with the title as well, I go into *every* match planning doing my best, with no expectation or sense of entitlement that I will win any match given my efforts.

Have to balance games like this with the ones where you did something stupid, got deleted early, & rage quit to port only to find out later your team won...

Since the end of the Indianapolis marathon, I've stopped worrying about lost games (and when I had "any number of battles" tasks, I also didn't care). All I care about is whether I feel happy with the performance I put in.

My main gripe is when I sink two or three ships and my team gets wiped out and I say to myself, "If an incompetent potato like me can take two ships down with him, why couldn't the rest of us? That would have won it!"

Or how about when its the highest? Yeah thats irritating, I recently had a match where I carried as hard as I could but we still lost. I sank 2 of the enemy DDs early game & lit up the 3rd one badly, he was avoiding me (lower detection) the rest of the match & counter caping points I took. The main problem I think was my team was trying so hard not to die (hiding/kiting) that they failed to do any meaningful good in the match. The simple reality is, if you play to lose (hiding/kiting) you will seldom be disappointed. In order to do damage you have to be willing to take it.

Cool, but how many 200K games do you have that were losses? I have 19 200K losses in Hindenburg alone. It's the HC Conf and Kraken that were the big deal. If Red is Dead they lose. My 200K losses boiled down to two things.

1. My team really sucked and dealt minimal damage before dying a potatoes death.

2. I was able to farm the reds but there collective HP was just too much.
