Germany has played in five top international hockey tournaments since the Berlin Wall fell. Their record against good teams is a sad 1-17:
Whatever sadness any other country's fans have experienced, it doesn't seem like it compares. Germany had a solid win against the Czechs in the 1996 World Cup and followed it up with precisely zero games in which they managed three goals, even though they've always been knocking on the door to establish themselves as a top team. And it's not as though they've been particularly unlucky - their pythagorean winning percentage is 8.9% or 1.5 wins out of 18 games.
