Whats up with people being proud doing useless damage?

Like last match a t57 did 1k dmg for whole 6 mins then after team died he unloaded 2 clips on enemy and ended with 4k+ dmg (he had either way no chance to win alone as there were 8 tanks alive).

Blamed the team for lose and braged about his damage.

 

So on paper he should have unicum stats (dont have xvm so dont know if he was really one), yet he did nothing to contribute even trying to win this.

 

Why are people so proud about this useless damage or like i call it "trash damage"?

If you are a WN8 addict there's no such thing as useless damage, winning doesn't matter either.  All that matters is the final damage done number - everything else is someone else's fault.

Why talk about another player? Let's talk about how much you contributed?

 

And why do people feel the need to create utterly pointless threads about what happened in a single game?

that t57 is preparing for ranked battles where useless dmg will actually be a valid strategy of obtaining chevrons :trollface:

Like most of these threads it has far more to do with buffing the thread creators ego than anything else.

You need to upgrade your reading comprehension. Its not about this one dude. Its about the type of behavior which you are able to notice often.

Do you need some tinfoil? At least its new theory "Forums are only there to buff ego of those people who create threads".

Lets look at it this way.. Just look at the enemy team as a single steaming pile of poop. And your job, as the designated poop scooper, is to get your shovel and scoop that poop until the pile is gone, one shovel at a time (pls don't bother asking where to leave the poop, or what kind of animal produced it, as this story is horribly fragile and purely for metaphorical reasons).

What part of the poop shoveling would you call useless, as long as you're scooping away the pile of poop and thus attempt to reach the final the goal of your endeavour?

Is it the first scoops, the part where the stench still bothers you as it finds its way up into your nostrils and the pile of poop is looming over you like the Eiger Nordwand on a sunlit winter day in the Swiss alps? Or is it the final shovels, when the scent of your sweat mixes with the sweet ripe stench of the spread out remains of poop?

 

Crap, the missus is yelling.. I'll get back to this later,.

Nothing wrong with it really. You simply need to learn to write properly then. Or better yet, just don't bother to write at all if this is the best you can do. You felt compelled to start this nonsense thread seemingly because of a single game you had just before. And it's not just utter nonsense on paper, it is in general. For real.

Winning a battle is still the most important subject in making "good" stats. But quite a lot players do like you described: 'let the guys take most of the hitting, I'll mop up and get the kills'. I understand that attitude if player has bottom tier or thinly armored vehicle... ...but T57... that should be in the near of the heat of the battle, so to say.

 

Moreover, if he's accomplishing a mission in which he gets rewarded for making damage, he probably priorizes that over winning the battle.

Probably to provoke other forumists to make childish questions.

Or have simpletons pitch in with nonsensical remarks, which they could have edited in their previous post instead of needlessly double posting.

I've even read guides that say damage over capping...

I play WoWS purely to win but I've had to adapt slightly and it's worked so far.
