I get bad games, I get bad teams, I get making mistakes and I get arty

 

I see why we lose, i see 6 tanks go beach on overlord for example and know we have only a small chance at best

 

I know where I go wrong

 

game after game players die in minutes, playing on steppes in VK40.02p for example and I heading to 9 line but before I can even get to shoot 6 dead, not 90 seconds into the game

 

sometime MM says not this game when we get amx30bs vs MAus on himmeldorf, although that should not in itself be an issue if players react and adapt but when does that happen

 

what I don't get tho is why you get bad teams game after game, sessions of bad teams.  3 or 4 games you might think can happen, but 10 or more games of zero chance?

 

this is not a rant, I am genuinely curious how these things can happen so regularly? it would seem an impossibility to get really bad sessions but they happen often, and often I have long win streaks when the boot on other foot so its not me only recognising my losing streaks, often games are bad the other way

 

edit  bad title, sorry

Last 24h: 41 games, almost 66% WR

 

I'll be damned if you call that a losing streak...

Because random is not random.

MM is rigged to favour one team over the other.

Balance is meant to be lacking by design.

You got mostly bad players in your team because most players are bad.

And you got long losing streaks because you were unable to carry some of those games.

 

Good/bad luck streaks are normal in games of chance.

So don't worry about it, it's okay.

All we can do as players is try to carry some of the bad games/teams.

And don't throw the good ones, of course. :P

I get losing streaks once a year and even then there's a logical explanation. This year it was when I got Grille, out of my first 30 games I had a 30% WR and 2.2k dpg.

It is really possible to carry games if you ask me. Even if you don't do much damage.

We didn't see you complain about that winning streak, that's a bit selective, isn't it?  :rolleyes:

this is more of a query as to why these things happen, I would expect things to be more consistent, closer to a 'mean' average' with +/- a couple of games either way with more occasional extremes which personally I would expect to be rarer

yep, that I also get, especially when you are grinding a new tank and its stock, that can be painful, KV-4 grind still gives me nightmares!!!!

 

likewise T-54 and E50 were tanks with low 40% win rates until I got top gun, now over 55% and still going up, much happier  :teethhappy:

 

now I try to ensure I got enough free xp to unlock essential modules and get a better chance from first battle

We all get these losing streaks, normally worst during the holiday times when kids are off school or there is a x3.   When it all goes pear shape I tend to play my so called easy win tanks like the luch or kv220 and I find that normally balances me out for the day.
