Just had a match that lasted a grand total of 4 minutes and 43 seconds, when the game stopped and went to the end of battle screen I thought it crashed but nope game ended. That's my record for shortest game ever, what's yours?

Places tin foil hat on

That large clan vs non clan player disparity; is often a indicator. Either the game is gonna be a blowout, or your few good players (if their are any) are going to have to carry hard.

You can find Potatoes in clans also.  The simple matter is the vast majority of the playerbase isn't good at all.  Clan or no clan.

 

OP, that happens every now and then and the only thing you can do is do what you can and try not to lose credits.

Oh it can get worse.  Imagine your team winning big, you help set it up to be that way, and then it somehow throws it for a loss at the end.

These are the worst.

Im pretty certain, a good portion of the playerbase doesnt even know that ships are worth points.

Yep this is what makes me want to throw my mouse through my monitor, instead I’ll take a break for an hour or so and go back to the good old Diablo 2, a lot easier on the wallet

You can easily guess what happened next. 🤣

We've been telling our Colorado to just do nothing because time is on our side. Instead, he searched for the enemy Iowa, came around that small island, and then literally threw all of our teamwork to the bin.

"must be a bot" 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

On the contrary. Those battles are the very best. 

Mainly because I’m typically on the red team, trying my hard wrest to enact a hard carry and pull victory from the jaws of defeat. If you get a battle like the above, then I’ve managed to carry - else I lose.

The funny part is some guys play smart enough to get in that winning position.  And then they go, "Okay now, we for sure got the win," and they get sloppy.  The sound decision making they did earlier to help the team get into a winning position goes out the window.  They take stupid risks to get off a few more salvos, try to get one more kill, do something blatantly stupid to get off a terrible torpedo salvo.  They die.  And then another "winning player" does something similar.  Meanwhile the "losing players" are desperately playing to WIN.  Another bad sign is the last few "losing players" are concentrated together.  That should be a red flag to not get stupid.  But noooooo....

Then you wind up on the wrong side of something like this:

That was a very old game from years ago, the meta has changed, the game has changed.  But player actions I think are still the same.

The only good thing I did that game was to not die.  The reds would have gotten the last points they needed if their pursuit of me was successful.

I hate the games you know your winning. You have all 3 caps and the enemy team is kiting away from caps. All the while your team decides to YOLO rush them while they are kiting.  Basically half your team dies and enemy team gets the win in the end.

Ive had games shorter than three minutes at times. It takes about half that or a little more to get to any of the objectives. Once in a while one team gets summarily sunk and it's over just as you are getting past the foreplay towards the main event as it were.

It's a crap shoot with unknown clans though.

I could plug certain clan names in that right side, and it would indeed have the potential to be a blowout, just with the non-clan team being the winning side.

Yeah, at least 3 matches last night were lost cause team wouldn't stop pushing....clear lead 3 or 4 caps to none, ahead by 400 pts. All we have to do is back off and wait for reds to commit but noooooooo!

It simply astounds sometimes.

Seen that happen too many times.  They feed the last few red ships piecemeal and die one at a time.  Next thing you know the ship superiority your team once had a big advantage in is now gone.

I still vividly remember a game like that years ago.  A bunch of our guys did exactly that and the big win that we had set up earlier was bled away.  But we still had one trump card left:

 

The last DD in the game was on our team, a Yugumo, but he was down to 2k HP.

No Carriers.

No more enemy DDs.

Nothing could catch our Yugumo.

 

The reds however did have a healthy Cleveland.

 

Despite our team's idiocy, we still had time, cap situation in our favor.  The only thing that had to be done to win was for our Yugumo to simply sail away.  The reds can go from 1/3 caps to 2/3 caps in the remaining time, but they didn't have the points and time left to overtake our score.

But our Yugumo decides to attack.

I saw him turn towards the red ships' last spotted location, they were clearly going for the center cap for a comeback attempt.

I begged the Yugumo player to turn around, explained what he had to do to win, and why in team chat.

He kept on going.

I told him if he did what said, we'd win, he'd get Solo Warrior against those last handful of red ships.

He kept on going.

 

So I watched him up run into the stealthy Cleveland.  Spot it, initiated a gunfight as he tried to do a 180 degree turn to fire torpedoes at the Cleveland, who probably popped Hydro just in case.  Cleveland missed its first salvo.  Yugumo popped smoke as it retreated.  Didn't matter.  She was now in Cleveland's Radar range.  Cleveland doesn't miss anymore, nor did Cleveland's teammates.

 

We lose.

 

His torpedoes never arrived at their target because he got shot up, died, ending the game.
