I had checked my Karma prior to the starting out this morning.  Played the below game,  Checked Karma  to see if I at least got a good job.

Wow, was I surprised.  Didnt chat at all and loose a karma point?  I guess I just dont understand.  Maybe someone expected more fires from a British BB, LOL.

Yep, it happens, 

I tend to gain karma during the week only to see it evaporate on weekends. 

 

The karma system really says more about those doing the upvote/downvote than it does about those on the receiving end.

 

Remember, "it's all made up and the points don't matter "

Your second screencap is out of sync; it's a Monarch rather than a Thunderer.

Remember you are playing against 13 other players, 7 reds and 6 greens. 

I am batting 50% in ranked because I keep playing to win and help the team. When I get second place and lose it's almost always to a long range spammer who survives long enough to steal meaningless XP, except it isn't meaningless in the ranked environment. The huge blowouts I have noticed are normally from teams that ignore the buffs and flank the entire map and farm the saps in the middle who are trying to get the buffs.

Additionally, many times frustration boils over after consecutive losses and you get reported because of players previous games where teammates play poorly and then it is taken out on someone else.

It was likely one of your fire victims. Not everyone enjoys being on fire the entire match.  Image result for ship on fire

Could have been a simple mistake. I have accidentally downed someone’s karma when I meant to upvote them, just grabbed the wrong pulldown by mistake trying to rush through it. I tried to fix it the times I happened to catch it but I am sure there are other times where I didn’t notice.

I'm guessing someone on the losing end was upset with the loss and decided to give a negative hit out of spite.

Here's a co-op battle where I had the high score and lost a point.

The CV got killed and then complained in chat about the DDs not protecting him, so I'm guessing he was the culprit.

Had a fun idea and didn't play my smolly for a week ( been grinding my 19 pnt commanders ) Karma went from 1 to 9  Started playing it again.. back to 1 in one weekend!

 GET THIS,  that's without playing it in a single random!

Karma and those silly bored faces on the forums are there to help weak anon people feel they matter.

If you have something to say,  say it out in the open. I guess that's a generational thing.

WG is a major enabler of these people. That's why they keep anon features that are basically useless active here.

Flip the script! Turn them into Triggered meters and laugh at the people who use them. 

I do : )

Holy crap unless there was TKing going on it’s hard for me to fathom voting karma down in co-op.

Happens more often than you might think. Sometimes you can figure out why, most often it's a mystery.

And in co-op you know it was a teammate - bots can't report you.

It's salt. Pure, white salt.

I once had a CV player lose his mind because I torped him in a DD, and he had missed me with about 8 thousand rockets by the time he went down. He accused me of cheating, and worse, and he even started a toxic chat after the game. Dude went clean out of his mind.

It happens.

To lose your Karma points easily, simply play a CV for a few games (and not that badly either ... came top in a couple of games). I went from 29 - 11 when playing a few games in my Ark Royal for the "Start xx fires in a CV" mission in the Directives.

The QQ makes me chuckle! .... "Here's a wee box of tissues for you to wipe those salty tears from your eyes!" :cap_haloween:

Karma used to bother me.  Not any more.  I know when I've played a good game and when I don't.  Most bad karma comes from people who have no clue about what you are trying to do or are just mad because you deleted them or from some elite who thinks they know everything.  Ignore it.  I do still  appreciate the up votes when I have a good game though.

How dangerous is a loose karma point? Will it go feral?

 

Sorry, could not resist. ;)

Salty players be salty.

Some people simply get [edited] over getting shot at, well done, you made someone, somewhere, cry on their keyboard, it is a feat well earned by loosing 1 karma.

But why would you let a karma point go? Just so they can roam free? It is said that you should let something that you love go free, so maybe that is the reason. ;)

 

No PC, so can't play, so imposing my sense of humor on y'all.
