Damage may not have have been as high due to not farming and instead, shooting the right people for the team and the win, you see so many games with people cracking 200k plus damage, and yet they lose the game, due to not shooting the right ships, or simply farming damage expecting others to do what is right for the win.

Nice win, when things click, the game seems effortless.

What benefited the team more than anything was that two of us held several of them at a single cap. If they had just rushed us we would have been toast but they kept drive-by shooting, which allowed us to wear them down. Some players may consistently get over 130k in a Des Moines but I'm not one of them. The server average damage for the Des Moines is a little over 62k per match.

You're right, the damage isn't extraordinary. But you don't get 2.5K BXP by farming from behind islands. The OP clearly was positioned well and was real important to the win. It's not the raw damage number that matters, it's what damage it was. I have a post where I pushed 2K BXP in the old New Orleans with less than 30K damage. Radar, capping, and a few good hits on DDs ending up mattering way more than big damage numbers racked up by HE spamming cruisers.

Is it an epic game? No. Is it clearly a well played game with an above average result? Absolutely. If we all had average games like that people wouldn't complain about random gameplay. I'd be very happy with that result.

Also the only BB in which you have anywhere near that kind of average damage is Bourgogne, so don't get too carried away. And for someone who doesn't play DM (or USN CAs at all for that matter) you're being awfully judgy. When you can pull of DM games like that on a regular basis come back and look down your nose on this game.

I'm gonna guess that the Midway didn't start attacking you until the middle to end of the match, otherwise those aircraft numbers seem a bit low.

Still, over 1 million credits in a Des Moines is DEFINITELY an awesome game. GG Snarg!

To me this seems to be a very ordinary sneer. No exceptional wit, no biting critique.

For who? Who has 134k average (in case your english is as bad as your math let me clarify... ordinary & average are synonymous) damage?

Your 74k average damage is definitely above average but it's still 60k less than 134k...so...it begs to differ in regards to being an "ordinary match damage wise" for you.

Only 1...why aren't you applying yourself...you can do much better than that if you would just apply yourself.

BTW...which one of your BBs has an average of 134k damage again??? 

+1 if you can post a screenshot to back that claim...actually you should start your own thread w/that (farm a lot of forum up-votes w/that actually)...it would be much more impressive than trying (& failing miserably) to derail this 1 w/such easy to look up actual stats provided in our player profiles.

Hmm...will he hide his now & just continue like the rest of the :Smile_trollface:s ???

I think the 2500 base xp is far more important to look at than just the raw damage number. 

200k+ damage games are pointless to brag about if all you did was farm BBs all game.

lol, overall average again you look at the wrong number i have multiple ship that average over 100k a game so 134k in one game is nothing for me , why do people get soo butt hurt when somebody has a different opinion ...

For a dude that has mostly red or orange stats you do have a big mouth :cap_horn: him even surprise that your stats werent even hidden ...

It is not always what you say, but how you say it. 

Someone with your experience should understand by now that damage is hardly the best way to judge a player or a match.

2578 BaseXP in the original post sh*ts on your notion of "performance."

Great play mate.  You did a bit of everything and killed it!

Really nice job. I did the grind to get the DM but she is so short ranged and soft compared to some of the competition I’ve yet to take her out for fear of getting wacked right off the bat. Thanks for the inspiration.

I think that a "great" battle is one that at the end you know that you did what you could with what you had (yes, this is stolen from Tremors). The 2,500 BXP supports the notion that Snag did what he could and that is good enough for me that this was a great battle. I sure would take these results again and again....

Way to go, Snag...

Fantastic job!!

I did chuckle a little, and its NOT because it was a CV that killed you, but because the description of the death cracked me up.

"Destroyed by a bomb"

I don't know why this is funny to me, but it is.  

Again, awesome game!!  Are you using the legendary module?
