When on Green, please don't play like these cruisers and get greedy for a kill when you will win by just waiting for the clock to run out.

We started well and then collapsed with over 5 minutes left on the clock.  

It was me against a red Zao and DM.  The Zao was capping C, which I had reset a few times.  B was held by red and A had never been capped.  The DM was last seen near A/B. 

I head into A/B, the DM radars me as the Zao resets me.  

Radar runs out and I get A and B, but we will never catch the points deficit.  Red just need to let the clock run out and they win.

I see blind torps come into the cap, and I send two sets out into the southern gap hoping for a hit.  There are still over 2 minutes on the clock.

Too my surprise a torp hits and a red cruiser appears.  I start firing at it. 

The kill symbol appears but I still see the red ship alive.  I keep firing, thinking there is a graphics glitch and the game is crashing. I realise later both ships were side by side charging me.

The Zao does the turn of doom and falls to my guns with 1:15 on the clock and  we win with all red dead.

The last two red are circled.

At 1:15 on the clock, when the last red died the points were 645 green to 639 red.  The death of a red cruiser is +40 to green and -60 to red. 

If both reds cruisers were alive at 1:15 the points would have been 565:759.

With green holding 2 caps and red holding one at 1:15 the extra points until the 20 minute mark would have been (+2 points per cap every 3 seconds) an extra 300 points to green and 150 points to red, or 865:909 for a red win.

Always play for the win.

Ah, the old snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Even the best players get greedy some times.

After this mourning I don't know if I can take anymore ranked. I played 18 matches, started at rank 11 and ended up where I started.....

 

The amount of clueless, awful, drone morons on both sides were worse then randoms...

Learn the clock, this season is 40 pts per cap.   Per minute. Math is your friend :)
