Good score OP. Regarding your question: I wouldn't have a freaking clue. Even I figured out the amount of frags isn't necessarily directly decisive to the outcome of a match. Neither is the amount of dmg dealt. I P2W (P = Play). I try (and yes often miserably fail) to play my role in that ship i'm playing. So the amount of frags, dmg, or whatever secondary point of interest to me is like said: secondary. The winning part gives me the biggest kick.

I dont have a screenshot of it but 2 years ago I got 5 kills with my Kutusov and noone hit me!

I say it again: I got 100% HP at the end of the battle.

 

And in this time I even didnt used the smoke and I always was 5-10km close to the enemy. A game without kill? 3 times in 1 year. :cap_haloween:

I often have games where I have no kills, and I end up top 3 of the team. 

This is because I do not get 'selfish'. As I play in a division with my son (usually he has a DD and I have  a BB).

We often make a 'pincer movement', I attack the BB or the CL, and he finishes it off from the other side. 

 

The kills I get are usually when he is capping, and he wants me to help defend.

I have a few krakens though, usually when I am in a cruiser.

What i see is a BB that is willing to die of HE spam, but shot maybe only 2 cruisers. Good result anyway, but would you cheer without that Fubuki in your team?

No Kills but high exp is pretty easily to get if you manage to solo cap.

Probably not, but he played his role and so did the Fubuki.

I'd call that an achievement in a BB too. :Smile_playing:

This might be my highest (alltho i didnt check them all), got some close as this as a BB, but as a Cruiser?!

shot-18_02.04_22_23.20-0166.thumb.jpg.1979ccad32cf7745234dffcdbfdf895d.jpg

 

On T4 this is however much worse:

And on T5 i got the last kill when i already had 120k damage i was a bit pissy because all the time DDs were stealing kills. BB burning at 500 HP? lets shoot quick...shot-18_06.29_00_37.46-0867.thumb.jpg.ef7e8830d20203473fbf576415680cb6.jpg

IMO there is no thing such as kill stealing.

What if he squeezes of another loadf and blaps one of your CLs?

 

Finish the enemy if you can.

The kill gives some XP, but the fast majority comes from the 5 HP you take off of him.

As a DD getting spotted its always questionable when u dont have to. And yes, i consider that killstealing. Its not as worse as some ppl hold their fire and shoot when the target is low HP (like BBs/Cruisers), but still... (or CVs dropping something which is focused/burning from the rest of your team)

Might aswell argue, when there are several ships shooting one enemy, then the DD might aswell fire all the time to get it down quicker. So the whole intention is getting the kill, nothing else. Cant even argue to get the target down quicker, since they didnt help before...

Yes i know the most XP is rewarded for the one who gets the most damage on him, but if everyone plays like "im only trying to get the kill" then its a fail-team. Sometimes u see those and u wonder: How did your team get nothing done? Thats when u have those "I hold my shot-guys"

Just had an Atlanta which was ~4 km on the open next to a New York. Didnt shoot once, you can calculate how many minutes he´d had the oppotunity. Only after I smashed my Fiji-Torps into it, which gave him a permaflood, the Atlanta thought, its a good idea to shoot a sinking, 1500 HP BB. Your turn.

Yes you get those types. I usually play in a division with a DD, so we do not care who finishes him.

If he sees one that is barely alive after I just shot him, he will finish him off.

Hahaahahaaaa yes and then you get no kills, and the DD gets 6. Which is sometimes what happens in our little division.

Yup sometimes you are in a fail-team. 

Remember those BBs sitting at the map border? 

They should get a special 'coward stinking vulture' flag IMO. 

 

Maybe we can ask @MrConway to have fields of mines floating there. 

Activated by ships touching map border/region more than 1 minute. :Smile_playing:

Another idea is to have torpedos launched there by submarines. Kill HP to be divided over remaining teammates.

For quite some time im thinking, instead of an engine penalty, ships touching the border should get damage. Maybe for like 20 sec you should get a warning, then little damage, like when you ram your teammates, which after another 20 sec increases. Or if you touch the border, you are instantly spotted by everyone. Nah, too comlicated, those kinda players wouldnt understand nor care.

 

Edit: On a more serious note: Id love to have an "assistent" award in the game. The ship, that does the most damage to an enemy, that got killed, gets this. Just to make you feel better and as a feedback "hey, maybe u didnt got the kill but you made it possible".

Yes it was a good idea. If I were in that NY it would have been that Atalanta that sunk before me (last second kill).

Turn the beast if needed, and last blast would be for teh Atlanta. Probably the first good idea that Atlanta had though. 

 

Hey, when you play with bananas you probably get some monkeys. That Atlanta was one of them.

I can see the annoyance though. Do you think he has 'understood' the permaflood? 

Wouldn't count on it (if he was in the open to a NY).

Yes, that would be a good one (DDs have it, they have 'spotting points').

I never switch target until they are dead (=enough). Sometimes I have to fire a few single turrets (do not want to waste the whole salvo).

The thing is I usually fight in a division. I can just ask for our DD or CL to finish him, before his next (last...?) salvo kills me or a teammate. 

Sometimes they ask me for help, and I shoot at DDs from 10k with AP (and sometimes I manage to blap them too).

Never underestimate the stupidness of stupid. The hit of your torps may have been the first time he noticed the NY. 

Also, YOU see the damage counter ticking (from the flooding) and he doesn't.

 

My experience in the past:

I almost deleted a Danae (in my NY) and he somehow escaped to wreck 2 other BBs.

He was at the other side of my guns though and I didn't bother to finish him.

This game convinced me that recently buffed Admiral Hipper was worth putting a new 10-point captain.

No kills, how about no hits?

 

I don't have a screenshot but quite a while back I came top and got a good score with a Tier 6 or 7 jap destroyer. I didn't fire my guns once and the few torps I launched all missed. However I capped the 3 caps 4 times and did quite a bit of spotting.

Granted, that IS something special. But 1 question remains: Did you win?  :Smile_coin:

Yes. As far as I remember it was 1 DD per side, he capped one cap and I capped another then we both went for the middle one. My torps drove him out of his smoke and my side killed him. I then took the 3rd cap. Both side were being some what cautious and just killing each other at long range, so I only got chances to launch torps at extreme range. Some brave soul on the other side managed to capture the first cap I took but got himself killed in the process so I went and took it back. With 3 caps to us the game finished shortly there after. It's always stuck in my mind because I caused 0 dmg, got not hits, and still came top and got a good score because I captured 3 caps 4 times.
