Today was one of those days in world of tanks where no matter what I did I would lose. So I lost 8 battles in a row. I was about to give up of WoT for today. Then I changed server, and I used my IS-3 and had an very good battle with 4k damage and I won it. So I finally won after 8 losses. Not only that, but this victory motivated me to have one of the best games later with my SU-122/44 with 9 kills (I can post replay if you want). Another battle was 4k damage and 6 kills but lost. I literally never had this happen. I was so motivated that I was so good almost every battle. And after 19 games in total today I got almost 5k wn8. Which I never had before. So my point is not to give up even when you have row of bad games at start. I didnt give up and had one of the best days in wot :)

8? Lucky you, I have lost almost all battles today. even top gun or 5k damage in some match would just not cut it. Indeed today's battles were all very fast, after 5 minutes it was usually lost.

 

Yes, I am giving up after this losing streak, probably I fail too much

Well SU-122/44 made a good day for me in WoT today. You just need to find a right tank :)

I didn't have a streak but enough bad luck to score a "50k 100wn8 sub 45% level winrate".....no matter what i did...shouldn't have played that day...next day which was yesterday by now was much better though.

I usually quit after 5 consecutive losses...

 

fortunately one night when I was drunk, I didn't quit playing the VK 100.01p and had my best game yet. :^)

Sometimes not even 8k damage is enough to win a game.

I usually don't give up when I contiuously lose. That's probably the reason my WR in the TVP is poor. I probably shouldn't be a stubborn donkey and should stop when I keep losing/playing badly.

Been on a 12 month downward losing streak.

When will it be my turn for a 'fair streak'?

I had a few amazing games today after being tired of trying to win in T28HTC, after 5 tries, still no win. This tank is doomed for me if I don`t have a good team.

 

Did 5k dmg in is-6 in one game (tier 9 game). Had a decent game in KV-5 on prokhorovka where I even managed to ram a poor lorraine for 800/900 dmg :D. And nother fun game in the KR Patton where I shot a KV-3, bounced and damaged the enemy T-32 next to him. :)

 

Tried again in the T28HTC and lost again. :facepalm:

 

Edit: 10 defeats in a row in the T28HTC... :medal:

I agree with what you said, I'm an average player, no bad not good but I had a similar experience a few times this month alone; so I took a break, changed servers and even un/re-installed; the resulting 8 losses in a row nearly ended my monitors existence. So faced with a tough month of ruined stats, (3 epic losing streaks) I am endeavouring to persevere but I can't help thinking this patch does seem to be handing my a** to me a lot recently, way too many 1-15 matches

I would call it a bad advice. Really bad.

 

When I was still playing - change of server would only frustrate me further. I have a good ping on EU1, on EU2 my ping tends to be higher by around 20 - may not be that much, but given that my ping on average is around 50, that is a difference of around 40% and is noticeable. Second of all - my ping on EU2 tends to be strangely unstable and prone to magical jumps here and there. So this part of the advice won't work for everybody.

 

Second part of the advice depends purely on player's attitude. As far as my experience goes - this kind of persistence is POINTLESS, unless you have a solid reason to play, like a bloody marathon or something, when you are basically on a timer.

I say - you have a bad day? Quit, make a break, play something relaxing and return later, after you vented your frustration and stopped giving a damn.

The thing is - if you have a losing streak and you even consider quitting in the first place, this means you got FRUSTRATED - and when frustrated, there is a certain point, upon reaching it you actually start playing badly without realising it. Frustration gets the better of you. At this point, even if you break the losing streak, you will still have no joy or satisfaction from it, and you will likely simply play further to prove your point that you have a bad day and feed your frustration further. Been there, did that. Many times, too many times.

 

When you have few battles on your account, that may not be the case this much - but the more you play, the more BS you see in this game on regular basis, the more prone you get to frustration jumps - ESPECIALLY if you are no bloody unicum, just a Joe average player with win rate around 49%, 1.0 kill and damage ratio, and your actual impact on battle is that you don't contribute to the loss but you do not contribute to the win either. Your average Joe in this game is like a movie extra - you are a FILLER for the better players to play around. When you add it to the matchmaking that throws you as bottom tier literally 70% of the time, you realise how hopeless the situation of average player is, how unfun and frustrating it is.

And when I said the game presents you with a streak of pre-lost matches where all RNG is set to max minus variables, followed by a pre-win streak of pluses...

This isn't a thread ranting about "rigging" and "pre-determined results" which does not happen. When you actually learn the meaning of the word "Random" you might learn to accept that.
