Hi 

Ive been playing on/off for several years but after returning to the game ive poorer results than usual?

 

Ive always had a positive curve om my stats but the new MM is making my stats decrease rapidly for some reason

 

Currenly grinding 110/pershing and using mostly tier 8 premium tanks makes me really wonder if im doing anything wrong atm?

 

Had a drunk session this saturday in premiums with 19 matches in my løwe ending at 26%win rate? Seriosly i would have gotten just as good stats just going afk?

 

anyway, game is frustrating atm,  is it only me?

Just accept it as a learning stage and try to pay more attention to that maybe?

meaningless small sample sizes. You said yourself you've just returned after a break and you were drunk... just sounds like anothr one wanting carried all the time and whining when the team does as well as he does.

Small sample size doesn't mean much, everyone has runs of bad teams.

 

Also, playing drunk might not help you, it's a lot of fun, but not great when you want good results. Add to that that tier 8 MM is hell at the moment and you've got a recipe for disaster.

Ive played 400+ matches since i returned, and IT has never been like this.

The løwe driving is just abysmal, even if i was drinking.Ive NEVER had results like this drinking or not.

Something is off, and im guessing its the new MM.
And NO, im not usally carried, its the other way around. Mr positive.

Don't platoon, you get terrible MM when platooned.

 

Roughly 90% of your matches when platooned will see you in the bottom tier.

Solo you'll get roughly 50% in the bottom tier.

 

MM is broken at the moment, play tier 9/10 or light tanks (they seem to get better MM)

Yesterday, playing G.W.E 100: Big map 30:30 five times in a row. Defeat five times in a row. Can't blame on my gameplay, playing arty, shooting as soon as reloaded, hitting for full damage, by the time my second shell hits we're 0:5 already, and we're finishing 6:30, out of these 6 three are my kills. I'm good but I'm no miracle worker. I'm thrown into the big map a lot recently, haven't won it even once. One draw, maybe 10 defeats. Usually either MM screws us giving all good players to the enemy team, splitting tanks roughly equally, or it just gives our side all the crap tanks. Interestingly, on other maps I'm getting much better results.

I was rolling avg 1600 WN8 for 200 games with 44% WR. Lost games were 70% steamrolls with almost no time to do anything which makes this avg quite decent. And no, I was not camping.

 

That was a full week (and more) of total cr.p.

It culminated last night with 1900 wn8 and 37% WR. I even cried in shared channel chat that I will stop playing... What a pu$$i.

 

Then I have decided to try to yolo to change my luck. Ofc, I could not do that... Just played 3 games with 10% of effort. And what happens next?

My WR climbed to 56% with me doing around 1000 WN8 with 1400 in avg for a whole session...

 

Conclusion: if you want to win - cry in clan chat and play like a donkey. :great:

Tier 8 Premiums, there's a big part of your problem.  MM is dumping from a great height on T8's under the current algorithm.  If you have Pref MM Tier 8's they'll work out better for you - I've found the WZ-111 to give the best results.

Sorry to burst your bubble but noobmeters 48% over the last 400 games tells something different. I think you need to relearn the game since it has changed quite a bit especially for a player who plays the game once in a while. The game is easy to play, playing well takes a bit more effort.

Most tanks that I have recently bought are yielding much worse win rates than I have had on average. And I don't play stock, I always free XP stuff not to be a burden to my team. Chinese IS-2, Centurion 7/1, Primo Victoria ... all with win rate under 40%. This just feels so weird. In older tanks I still do OK.

Thats exactly what im saying?

IT has never been like this before.

Sure ive had periods, but not like this were several tanks get red stats.

So what has changed besides the new MM?

Exactly my feeling as well.

More and more mongoloids are rising through the lower tiers all the way to the top and further ruining the random balance. You know the map features and the reasonable deployment options, but then your "team" just goes and throws all sanity out of the window and you watch incredulously as everything just falls apart. I like to joke at the start of the match that this map is new, but the joke is on me because it indeed looks new to most players. In the old days you had more good players surviving on the team to be able to carry, nowadays you often have to rely on yourself alone - and not all of us are unicum enough.

Too much changed in the 8 months you didn't play. You can fill pages with it. Many broken tanks have been introduced, LTs have been uptiered. You can't expect to know everything in two months and play as usual after such a long break. It's not like CoD where you play one title, come back a year later to play it again. You still need some time to get used to it again but the game is static, nothing changes...WoT does.

I had 6 of 6 wins with my is5 last night. Ok, I got Kolobanov medal in one battle (I left alone against 5 tanks and 2 arties when I was top tier and ended with 7 kills), but MM was surprisingly good for me. 2x top tier (5+10 and 3-5-7), 2x bottom tier (5-10 and 3-5-7) and 2x mid tier (both 3-5-7). Maybe MM rewarded me for 0-10 streak few days ago...
