I do have my worst line of loosing streaks today.

I noticed a drop of efficiency between 0.7.5 and 0.8.0. Is there any reason the players are getting worse now?

I feel like I'm playing with bad bots on my side.

I've been having my worst streak ever over the last 4 days or so. Normally a bad run will only last a day. Not sure what the reason is but XVM shows a sea of red most of the time at the moment. The mid tiers seem partcicularly bad (where are all the experienced credit farmers?)

I was looking forward to the Brits arriving but i'm slightly dreading tomorrow now!

haven't seen you posting in some time now. :)
Can anyone think of a reason, why this started to happen after 0.8.0? Is there an influx of new players, of did the old one just became worse?

Maybe we got an flood of new players due to golden joystick award?

They are new to game, so don't know it yet.

Give it time.

More advertisement = More players
More players = More bad players

Yup, that could be a reason too.

Just had a totally and completely ridiculous losing streak myself. Just after I prolonged my premium, but that will definitely have been the last time.
No gold anymore, no dev -support in any form from me.
If they can keep it up and running Ok I will probably play,  but I really hate being cheated or being given the very strong feeling to being cheated by horribly bad game and match making mechanics (e.g. ridiculous high random factors, magic bounces etc. ) and will not pay for it anymore.

You had a loosing streak. Today in the morning i had a winning streak of 9 games in a row with 9 different tanks. I stop playing because i made all my important daily doubles. Only God (MM in WoT) knows when that winning streak would have stoped.

I also had loosing consecutive streaks: 11 with T28 and 8 with batchat, but we, passionate runners never give up until we cross the finish line - in my case, until i make the daily double.

People tend to make to much of a fuss of loosing streaks when the conclusion is very simple: blame it on MM. Welcome to random games!

It is frustrating isnt it? Never had so much losses in a row. And I am quite sure WG is at work there with their horrendous MM, but one can only assume. Only solution is to take break and try later. Or you can stop bother and kill as much robots as you can.

Same here, only I didn't have a winning game at all. 105mm T29 hits directly frontal in 38tnA, no damage and lotsa,lotsa ridiculous misses and dings and no damages. Frankly, f**** this. No more gold for these guys ever.

I feel like yelling at my bad team.
You guys know what I mean? Those suckers in their Tiger2, T34 or IS6 with not more than 700 efficiency...

if you ask me, there aren't any bad players, cause everyone makes a differance and so no one is a bad player
