Played a game two days ago where I did just over 100k damage, played quite well if I say so myself, and our team still lost. 

I was driving a Yugumo (a new ship for me).  She's setup with consumables and Captain's skills as a torp thrower.  I, along with a cruiser,  engaged almost 1/3 of the red team in contesting the western C cap while 2/3 of my team went for the eastern A cap. I kept sending torps into the cap, and the red team kept turning away.  My cruiser ended up nailing the Gearing as he was dodging my torps.  I think that he was frustrated with me not entering the cap, so he decided to push and got himself killed.  As soon as that happened, two BBs and a cruiser started pushing the cap (silly captains).  It was intense, but by the time that it was over a T10 BB was dead and a T9 cruiser and T9 BB had lost 1/2 of their health and moved away.  I captured the cap.

Meanwhile, my team had capped A (eastern) and were on their way to B cap the last time I checked the minimap.  The fight with the two BBs and cruiser kept my attention forward so once it was done, I glanced at the minimap to see how close the cavalry were and to my amazement, most of them were dying in or near the B cap.  I don't know how or why they got themselves brutalized, but they did.

I kept fighting and throwing torps, but the weight of numbers finally caught up with me.

I'm still chewing over this battle.  I played it right, and we still lost.  Grumble, grumble.  I guess that I wanted to vent to someone.  Feel free to tell your own story.  It'll probably make you feel better.

Yah happens all the time. Hard to control the other flank to keep them from evaporating. If the other side dies even when they have 2:1 advantage, it’s just one of those 30% of games that are unwinnable.
