Sacrifice a goat first. Then try harder next time.

I always try my best to damage the enemies, no matter how the round goes. I want to win, but honestly don't mind loosing. I just press Battle again. So my answer is the first one.

If I feel the game is shafting me, then I shut it down and do something else.

The alternative was interesting enough and it took two months for me to play again. I guess some people never come back after the frustration gets too high. It's a shame there is no way to measure the 'natural wastage' of the experienced player base.

Just a personal gripe but there's a big difference between lose and loose, maybe if you leant to spell you'd get more winner teams instead of whiner teams...

I just switch tanks, and if that does not help I play exclusively lower tiers to keep the fail-costs down.

Yesterday was a prime example.Nearly every game my teams down to 3 tanks after a minute.End up getting ganked by tanks from all sides.Killing nearly half the other team myself and watching noobs basecamp.Sooooo fucking annoying.
On a side note tried some of the early soviet td's.....all i can say is utter shite.
Next match the same.Must have been idiot day or a  full moon or something.

Now that we are on it, he probably did not achieve what he meant with "hopping" either.
And if you really have to start correcting other people's typing, maybe you should type properly yourself as well.
Or where were you leaning to? ;)

Depends on the loss. A close combat with a 1 /vs/ 1 situation in the end when my team loses is still better than a win with 15-0.

When having a loosing streak i take a non tier10 tank, and then everything goes back to normal.

Its very weird, but almost every time i play tier10 i get the extreme morons/noobs on my team. You know the maus hiding behind arty. Arty that "accidental" kills two of our teammates. Lemmingtrains that gets to a total stop when spotting a single tank. Batchat that rushes to death within 30 sec without spotting anything. The list is long and new shit happens all the time. A few days ago my team had 3 afk tier10 tanks  :Smile_sad:
My tier10 tanks are so cursed that i consider selling some of them.

Hmm, where's the option to tighten up the loose teams?
Sooooo many of the teams I was on yesterday in my M8A1 were so loose that I'd have to describe them as diarrhoeia rather than shit. I logged in with a 61% WR in that TD, logged out in disgust with a 48% WR in the same.

Astonishingly though, in one of those battles I managed to get two nice shiny medals and Ace Tanker! Maybe the MM was off having a cuppa for that one?

Yes yesterday was a terrible battle day.
Most Wednesdays are terrible.
I lost my first 9 battles did get over 50% after a hard struggle ended that day with 16/16 wins/losses.

There are a hell of a lot more useless teams out there than there were 6 months ago, that's for sure. Massive losing streaks do seem to be becoming more and more common for a lot of people.

Sorry Vuk, but I found this comment to be VERY amusing - and very correct, too.

I would think that many football players feels the same way when their team keep losing (despite their own brilliance  :Smile-hiding:)
- same as every other team-based games I guess....

I voted option D, although its more like :
"I seem to be on a losing streak, the smart choise would be to stop for now" - then clicking "battle" anyway, temper a little bit hotter than before  :Smile_amazed:

Maybe you should force yourself to do 20 push-ups after each lost battle, at least you would get a littler bit stronger (prolonged losing streak might ruin your aim :Smile_veryhappy: )
