What I could have done differently to win?

judging by your medals you spammed h.e all game which made no impactful damage to the enemy. British bb arent really carry ships aside from maybe thunderer, just too squishy to tank through and make a hard carry.

1.  Dodged torps better.

2.  Chosen a different ship.

3.  Been in the Red Fleet.

4.  Sank more ships.

5.  Nice match for you though.   Well played!

Hard to tell from just post-battle screens -- post a replay.

Need to see a replay to know for sure, but.

Looking at your team, 4 of your team would have placed on the winning team above the guy that obviously died early. Actually not a bad sign.

The other team had 2 cruisers and 2 battleships that had a field day wrecking your team, and much of the red team did somewhat better than average.

From what little I can tell from your own stats, missing the all important screen showing the details of what your ship did, it looks like you spent the whole match spamming HE. It might result in nice damage numbers over the length of the match, but it will not remove guns from the other fleet quickly. Your fires and HE spam was killing the other ships after they had wrecked your fleet. Those Izumo's did a lot of damage even if someone else got the kills judging by their scores. You''re gonna want to hit the cruisers with AP when given the chance in order to wreck them, and if an Izumo gave you broadside, you needed to punish that with AP, as they can't heal Citadel damage like that can Fire damage.

Yup. Too much HE spam. Rule of thumb: 179K HE damage is worth a little over 100K AP damage. You'd be better off using HE situationally and AP most of the time. All my 200K games in UK BBs were majority-AP games and they were mostly wins.

HE gets damage. AP wins games.

Warspite and Hood, particularly Hood, are quite tanky.  Hood's difficulty in carrying is due to lackluster offense.  Warspite can carry quite nicely.
