Hi everyone, am i the only one thats noticing a GREAT increase in steamroll matches since the new patch got released? Now an average battle lasts 3/4 min and one team ends up winning with a very big advantage (10 or more tanks still alive). I have only played around 30 matches since the patch came out and only 5 or 6 were not steamrolls. 

P.S. who the hell decided it was a good idea to have a medium with more armor than an heavy (430U) and a td with no frontal weakspots AT ALL except for a small plate that you can't reliably hit in any tank?

430u has huge frontal weakspot on lfp easy hit even for tier 8's and 268ver4 has weakspot on the top and bottom and desperate accuracy.

Have you tried to actually fight a 268 ver 4? even if hes standing still you still miss the weakspots because they are waaaaaaaaay too small to be hit reliably, and about the 430U... so if it has a "weak" lfp it can have op ufp armor and turret armor?lol even the cupolas are hard to pen without gold ammo.

You reckon people need their mods to not play like trash?

Teams are full of red Czech, Hungarian and PL players. Not saying they are bad, but the stats tell a different story.

For the past two days almost all random battles have been steamrolls and unfortunately I have been on the losing side in most of them. There is little I can do in a slow low tier heavy. Go to an empty flank to die alone, follow the main group and arrive when your team mates are almost all already dead, stay close to base and wait to be surrounded.

 

I am pretty sure the MM is putting me in a lousy losing position to try to make me use gold ammo and convert free xp and thus spend hard currency. They have seen I am willing to buy stuff so they could try to make me spend more. At least it is a believable theory. If Facebook makes psychology experiments on its users why not WG, too? Just a small adjustment in MM might bring in considerable revenue.

 

Oh, I know the standard forum response: "Show your replays so we can teach you to play better." I am not trying to become unicum but I would like to maintain the balanced 50/50 win rate. I understand the fact that I can make a difference in only some battles, the others are lost or won regardless of my performance. But when I get steamrolled 5-10 battles in a row it takes a lot of winning to get the win rate back up.

 

Oh well, the only way up is to get better.

Not yet they are. But tomorrow evening I get my hands on my so-called OP Obj 257. Too bad I'm an UP (under performer).
