So I've been running the new and improved match making monitor the past week and really like it, so much more information than the one I was running. It even shows each players karma. 

So what has seeing everyone's karma every game told me?? Fully half of the player base has zero karma. A few people have karma in the double digits and maybe one other person has karma into the triple digits. 

How do people not accumulate karma?? Do they lose it all through chatting and poor play or do they just never get it?? Here I am, supposedly one of the most disliked players on this forum and the karma just keeps rolling in in game.

I noticed that too, I also noticed that many players are sub 50% WR and PRs below 500

 Hard to collect karma when you do nothing for your team?

I have chat disabled through the modpack and yet my Karma keeps going up; it is meaningless and stupid. Ops players seem to give compliments if you come in the top 3 and 5 star and Op and I do lots of ops so I've hit the triple digits with ease despite never actually communicating in game.

I don't think most players pay him any mind as he is neither clever nor interesting nor skilled enough to warrant such concern. Hell @HazeGrayUnderwayhas said more outlandish things than ducky.

I'm guessing this. If you're going to potato around you're probably going to get a good amount of reports thrown at you. Add a tendency to run your mouth in chat and it quickly adds up.

If you're competent, you're going to get a +1 here and there when you do something good. Sure you'll still get reported, but they'll be something to offset it. But again, if you're a unicum and rage at the team all game about they're terrible play, you're going to get reported even if you're right. 

Basically you don't have to do much to get reported. Getting complimented you have to be trying on some level. And we all know that most of the WOWS players aren't the best players.

Yeah but even if you don't care you're still going to collect it. I just noticed I have extra reports/compliments now, so my karma must have gone up. But it's not through any conscious effort on my part. I'm guessing that most people don't even know there is a karma system. But I'm pretty sure everyone knows about the report button.

Also I think my recent forays into DDs have helped. I know if a DD on my team is doing a good job I'm much more likely to compliment him than another ship type. So maybe people are just happy to see a DD who can spot (it's got to be the spotting, I still can't hit squat with torps).

Well, this has turned into a fun, mature mud-slinging fest, hasn't it?

Negative reps for everyone.  Karma that.

If you care enough to be on the forums you're already one of the elite players, I'm guessing most casual players don't even know the forums exist.

I have 129 Karma last time I checked. When I give Compliments, I let whoever I am giving it to know. When some players noticed that I am "not your average CV player", I have been given Compliments because of what I did whether that is capping or engaging and sinking an enemy in close quarters combat. As far as I know, the only thing Karma is good for is that if you were to accidentally team kill you MIGHT be given a free pass and not be pink as I have had this happen to me.

Play good and give and let people know you are giving them a Compliment. I have given entire teams Compliments over how well they performed whether that was a win or a loss because a hard fought yet balanced lost can be a good battle.

Give a Compliment, get a compliment. Just that simple.

About a year ago I started checking my karma after every game out of curiosity. The occasional games where I get a bit salty in chat and I expect to get negative karma I don't.  The games where I stay silent and have really good/great games, I'll somehow get negative karma; I'm assuming that it's coming from the opposing team, but I know I've gotten negative karma on many occasions from teammates when I've had great games and either said nothing in chat or just positive comments.   I can give all sorts of examples, but suffice it to say that it's confounding when people give positive or negative karma.

Having said that, my karma is quite a bit higher than I would have expected it to be, so I guess I'm doing something right.

The only time I really Report (negative Karma) is when an important ally (like a BB) is exceptionally useless and did not contribute to anything. Like a certain player in this battle:

 Pretty much boils down to the last sentence

 No it's not that, but it is an interesting stat, to get somebody to go do the extra work of complimenting or reporting your play style

 It's to bad they got rid of negative karma be interesting to see how many people that are 0 right now that would be really lower if they didn't have a cap on it.

I ignore karma now. If you play a CV or any HE spam ship, the enemy just gives you bad karma.

Kill a DD with rocket planes, almost guaranteed negative karma. 

Light a BB on fire, he uses DCP, then put 4 new fires on his ship = enemy player spending all his karma limit giving you bad hits.

It literally cannot have anything to do with that; I mostly play Ops now, very rarely PvP, and my karma skyrocketed, despite my chat being disabled. All we do is win with 5 stars and people shower you with compliments.
