lately I see a lot of Tier IX or X DDs score 200-300 base XP in losing games.

Are they considered to be pretty bad? yet they grind up to Tier X! LOL

so do you think they are pretty awful if they play high tier DD and score 200-300 base XP in random game? I mean, that's coop standard, isn't?

Yes, 200-300 base XP is really bad for random battles. Though sometimes stuff happens, even unicum DDs may randomly die to a stray torp or an ambush at the start of the match once in a blue moon.

Why wouldn't they grind up to T10? They are obviously convinced that better ships = better performance.

At high tier 200 is bad for coop.  Low 300s is possible in a short game where everyone does about the same.

Random torps and completely crazy unexpected potatoe yolo rushes. Like your just transitioning behind an island to get from one side to Center and someone pops up right in front of you and 4 allies.  He has no way to survive but manages to take you with him.

Even though CV rockets have been nerfed, they can still provide spotting for the rest of the team.  Getting harassed and dying early can still happen.

Barring unlucky ambush or something, I dismiss players with that low base XP as potatoes that don't have any business playing there.

Yeah 200-300 XP is really bad but sometimes in some matches is kinda unavoidable... that's why I hate Epicenter so much...

I've spent Epicenter matches basically wasting time without earning any XP. Some times you "need" to sit in the damned center circle to stop the reds from capping, you sacrifice most of your match just in order to stall the cap, you earn no XP for that. You neither earn XP by laying smoke to cover your team mates, XP from spotting is also very low. Unless you can complete the cap or deal some damage (which sometimes is really complicated by being shackled to that damned center circle) your XP will be really poor. 

Yesterday had an Epicenter match in a Hsiengyang (or whatever it is called) I was paired against an Asashio and a Cossack (my team other DD was a "big gunboat" and was consequently operating on the flank), it fell on me to stall the center, against 2 DDs that outspotted me by a wide margin, without even the possibility to torp them in return, couldn't charge 2 of them and expected to live, couldn't back down and flank without conceding a severe points advantage... it was just hang around there for about 7-8 minutes until the match was lost elsewhere and I punched below 300XP.

Unfortunately, that's 80-90% of the player base there. I admit to being a spudnik for the first 2 years before I decided I need to get better.

Could it be they went to cap and expected their team to kill what they spot?

Instead they get no support and die from enemy focus fire?
