OK, so, I was last place. My question is, was my contribution a factor? Battleship with first blood, we won, but I was bottom on the team, was my sacrifice worth it, would you have played it another way? I followed  @Space_Jimmy after I was sunk, I think he did no bad moves. I complimented the team, until my compliments ran out. WOWs, my compliments ran out in 1 battle, go figure. Couple of pictures and a replay. The other team held well too. I am happy with my contribution, last place player on a Victory is still first place and if you believe that the victory is because of your own self ....

Take out a DD right? That's NASTY poke out the enemies eyes.

Tank some damage. Was my play critical in this battle. Jimmy and his NASTY bunch were also critical to the conclusion.

@Lord_Zath what do you think?

No Matter Just Asking. It was a great Battle by all involved.

I would be unhappy with my performance if I did only 25k damage in a tier 9 BB.  Even with the win I would be pissed at myself for dying early and not contributing more.  Good job on taking a ship with you, but no, I would feel like I hadn't done my part in that particular battle.

25K damage in the Alsace is not something the game rewards. Judging on the damage you did to your DD kill, it was a KS. Sorry, man. This wasn't a great battle for you.

Also, the best player in that match was sailing a Smolensk. Go figure.

As for the data...  1.4m potential damage shows you were indeed attracting a lot of attention.  While not getting much XP, you can definitely help the team by ensuring enemies are shooting at YOU rather than your teammates (assuming you're actively dodging shells - otherwise you're just dying and giving up points).

 

I also note you received a lot of damage...  perhaps you got hit by a bunch of torps or showed broadside to BBs a little too long...  or got farmed by HE spammers (looking at sources of damage, torps are out so it's probably farmed by HE spammers).  You did spot 10 torps but none hit, so good dodging.  So you were forced back and had to keep your presence on the field but couldn't get close enough to get your secondaries going.  The lack of damage could be because of the increased range and resulting difficulty in hitting enemy targets reliably.  You also mainly shot AP where perhaps HE would have been the most consistent damage dealer at longer ranges.  You died halfway through the battle duration, so you were probably either overextended or were on the enemy's push side by yourself and got overrun (Alsace + engine boost makes me think it was the first possibility).

 

This is what I can glean from your screenshots.  If people vote for your replay, we can see if I'm right with some of these :).  Otherwise, at least the above anlaysis might help.

It is like a game of Chess, you make a certain move at a certain time and you can give your team just enough of a leg up to pull off a win! 

So yes you contributed to the win! 

But always look to improve your game performance, your ship positioning and the protection of your team mates and how you can help.
