An official place for us to fill our mugs with tears and lament our Herculean, but failed efforts to carry a team

For your own best interests I remind you to avoid "Naming and Shaming"

 

Let me get the ball rolling...

Hah, once I made the same thread but it was almost 200k dmg in an Akatsuki and a Kraken and all the bitter people on this forum flamed me be for 'bragging.' Never mind it was was also my best game ever in that or any DD till that point. Oh and when I told off the crap excuse for people who flamed me the terrible soviet mods struck me down for doing so. Pretty dumb of them ultimately since I only became more powerful than they could ever imagine.

Yea, these sort of threads don't tend to create a positive response in these forums.

My highest damage game, a 293k Republique game was a massive carry, pull team over to the win, but the vast majority of my over 200k damage games are losses.  Usually when your team is losing, target rich environment, you are not competing with your teammates, since in many cases they are dead, so you can rack up some damage numbers.  So for me damage a bad indicator of “carry” for a team

What's wrong with bragging?

Clear evidence of sitting on the border and sniping this loss was your fault

360 hits with secondaries.  Nah.  It is clear he withheld the normally generous grog rations from his secondary gunners who did all the work while suffering through it with hangovers, and now he is trying to take credit for all their work.

For the past 4 days i have lost far more than I have won. I guess its all my fault.  I've stopped caring about my win rate anymore. I have a very high dmg rate, I frag a high level of ships and my rank score is pretty good, but 1 person cannot carry 11 others the Random system MM just matches up ships not the skill of the player and so nothing will ever be done until that is addressed.  It is frustrating beyond explanation. 4 days of less than 40% win rate while previously i was over 68% for almost a week (6 days just checked). I usually play over 30 matches a day when I'm off from work and the only conclusion i can put to this odd occurrence is a lot of poorly skilled players must be on for the Halloween event.

Your gym meme does not accurately reflect the level of carrying you didn't really do in your match.  Gotta at least break 2000 base xp, preferably 2500 base xp to be a worthy carry.  Kills mean nothing when your base xp is that low because it means most of the damage done to those ships you killed were at the hands of your team mates.  You did best on your team, don't get me wrong, but for your match, this meme is more appropriate:

68% is just as much of a statistical abnormality as is sub-40% win rate for a vast majority of players in this game. Just accept the fact that sometimes you get more lucky than usual and you have more wins than your "true" average, and sometimes you don't get lucky and you have less wins than the "true" average.

Unless you believe that you deserve the 68% win rate, and that only bad teammates hold you back.

What stat site are you using because you have a 40% win rate over the last 180 battles played (comprising of the last 7 days) and a .81 kill / death ratio which is anything but a high frag rate.  And a very high average damage?  How do you figure?  Your average tier is 9.1 and 63% of the time that's in battleships, the highest average damage dealing ship type and you're only averaging 46k which is insanely below average for that tier.  Even in the cherry picked post battle screenshots your avg base xp is in the toilet, even when your team performed mostly worse than you.  Your survival rate is an abysmal 20% which means the primary reason why you're performing so far below average is because you're taking too much damage and dying early.  Dial back the aggression meter a bit and your performance will improve tremendously.

This game was quite a while ago, and sadly i don't have the other results screens, nonetheless though I do remember it being an extremely dumb loss.

Enemy midway kept throwing planes at me while i had to fight off half the enemy team in A cap alone while my team all ran off to C.

Can't really say much else to be honest...you win some you lose some.

sitting back is never my thing, and i appreciate the advice but how is it you know so much when you barely play the game ?

Read my signature, it explains everything.  And if sitting back isn't your thing, that is the result of a play style that runs against the grain of the fundamental game mechanics (not to mention the game wouldn't give you 20+km gun range unless there was some value in making use of that range, nor would the engineers who design the cannons for battleships in RL build them for that range without purpose).   If suicidal, fast action aggression is more your play style, you'll have more enjoyment playing die every 5 minutes, rinse and repeat first person shooters.  This game is a tactical simulator that requires patience, planning, forecasting and delayed gratification to be successful. 

It's ok if you still prefer to go against the grain, but it's a contradiction to get frustrated as if it's the fault of RNG as you claim or other factors.  In other words, consciously going against the grain forfeits your right to blame anything external for your frustration if that makes sense.

It would be like me refusing to dribble a basketball and complaining in frustration that it's the ref's fault for calling me for traveling.

i see a guy with 71 battles giving advice. i have almost 4000 and i'm not complaining as i stated in the first line all those losses are obviously my fault. Just played one in my mass and virtually my whole team died in the first 9 minutes. game ended with 11 minutes to play. i have been playing just under a year and in my clan i always play aggressively as a BB its your job to push and i do my job a Mass or a GK are better brawlers and thats how i play them its the grain they flow on. opinions vary but many players have helped me get better that post in here

Let me translate:  "He's trying to say that his signature explains that he has a lot more battles on his main account."

in the last week or so i had these games...

 

only 3-4 people got any kills on my team.  ran out of time to kill the last enemy. 

Spoiler

A6C8540017FCF46E4BAF94418D8776552439EA54

 

tanked a lot, but couldn't get the win.

C9A91DA4FDD5209A123ED4287E44436BCF17D331

had this game.   Couldn't kill fast enough to keep up with my team's loses.

Spoiler

4F8A1C9FA6C04AD83F21E64FFBC78AA231185761

so the following game after that i had to win a 2v1 against a wooster and haragumo to get the win.

Spoiler

E0DCBC86CA214FAE68AA8D3C3AC0EE3F94320346

and after this game the other day, i just called it a day. killing 2 dds and 2 bbs(did all the work on one but someone else got the kill) and a cruiser on my flank just wasn't enough to overcome my team melting.
