"One team is always much stronger from the start".

 

I feel like I am now going backwards, unlearning things in those 3-4 minutes of typical "matches", win or lose.

My stats still slowly going up for some reason, but what is the point?

Probably my last Christmas spent playing this steaming pile of dung. 

I pity those who are only starting this game right now.

When I left about 5 months ago I saw you sitting here complaining all day, now I'm back and the first thread I see is you complaining. Just leave dude, it's not that difficult.

He's complaining, because this game used to be great and still has a massive potential, if only it wasn't owned by a greedy multi-bilion company, who just wants to milk it and doesen't give a crap about the playerbase.

Oh noes, qpranger likes all these sorts of threads but he can't like his own posts ... it must be some sort of quantum thing :ohmy:

3 things can happen:

Your team is better - win

Your team is worse - loss

Both teams are about equal - here is where your skill decides how often you can make this situation a winning battle.

A far more pertinent question: Will this be your last Christmas creating all these nonsense threads? Moderators really should take away your ability to create threads...

Having been on a team with OP this weekend I wonder whether his in-chat toxicity is helping is WR?

Actually felt like quite a few were more even towards the end than usual ...

 

ofc there are the "wtf? 9 dead and game is 3 min old ..!?" matches too ...

 

And the ones where MM is on hallucinogens and puts Types and VKs as heavies on one team with frenchies or something on the other ...on himmelsdorf ... but all in all not too bad.

dude you are a community contributor... how can you speak like this?

 

when you feel like that... you have to blame RNG and stalin...

 

How can you progress as CC otherwise?

There is no skill involved (unless you refer to situational awareness) when rng decides for you the outcome of the last (in many cases) decisive shot....cause WG.

(read the following in the narrator voice of Stanley Parable)

 

After playing 27k games (that's about 1600 hours), qpranger was starting to think the game might be boring and not worth his time anymore.

I agree - what is the point in you continuing to play this game which makes you so miserable?  Seriously... have you ever stopped and read the teary-eyed drama you post?  It makes you out to be rather odd, appearing to hate something so much and yet you still do the thing that brings you so much sorrow... it's bizarre!  Save yourself a LOT of anguish, this game isn't for you, stop now!

For a moment there I thought you were talking about supporting QPR.

Funny how Kozzy only pipes up when I post about "balance".

I honestly thought the creature was banned again until this topic :)

'Creature' awww bless you.

 

Serious question though: If this game is rigged and makes you so mad, why not go do something that enrages you less?

Well here is something that I remember from my early halcyon days of supreme suckage in WOT: 

people swearing at me (and other noobs) when we really surpassed ourselves in doing something wrong. 

Strangely enough, I did not feel offended, but instead paid attention to those situations and tried not to repeat those mistakes. 

But of course I did that because I am an old grumpy weirdo who is still keen to learn.

And not a window licking precious little flower who must be mollycoddled ad nauseam to ensure that his dumb bubble never gets burst.

Didn't you start a thread complaining about rigged match-making and how this was the last time you'd be playing the game?

 

In case you don't remember, scroll up a bit.

And you were slinging insults in the countdown.  Really helps the team dynamic.
