Hi, I've wondered if the algorithm or rule set represents reality or even comes close to normal.  I say this because I personaly have noticed patterns that make no sense to me.  I can tell very soon in a battle via 'illogical intiuition' whether my random battle 'team' is going to be obliterated or utterly stomp all over the enemy! Even though I DO THE SAME THING the results seem to differ.  What I'm trying to communicate is that I get a sense, a feeling that my epic 8 kill game was simply handed to me at random and my 30 second 'every shot missed the mark' game was equally handed to me at the will of an algorithm (to keep me lured & hooked), and my performance stats don't actually reflect my real life capability.  Am I sensing right? Am I a paranoid android? Your thoughts?

You know on a Wednesday, when you go and see the psychiatrist, and he shows you those ink splodges and you have to say what shape they are?  Well there is no pattern there and there is no pattern in WoT either.

I'd like a wider sample opinion base, minus the personal insults and bs, but that's probably expecting too much, in the same manner that I notice patterns in WoT, I notice patterns in people.

They don't use these anymore.

And clouds, and flames in the fire, and that picture of baby Jesus you saw in that burnt toast.

 

It's human nature to see patterns which aren't there.  That's all.

 

But I have an industrial roll of tin foil if you want to borrow some.

We could give you a wider opinion base but are you just going to choose to believe the ones that agree with your pre-conception?

You tell that to Doctor Aspinall.  I just do as I'm told.  Whatever keeps him happy.  If he wants me to see a bear it's a bear.  Anything but the electric shock therapy.

Years ago my Dr showed me picture with something like wings on it, I said Batman (with a deep voice ofc) and that was the end of it.

No, I'm open to a wider opinion base, but insults as standard WoT player community usage isn't what I'm looking for, I want to know what the general consensus is, is my 58% winrate at tier 1 earned (with a semblance skill) or just a piece of algorithmic bs? Is YOUR percentage earned or just algorithmic bs?

In that case, MM is random outside of a few rules in team vehicle composition so if you've earned a 58% WR then it's entirely down to you. Any patterns that you may think you see are product of your imagination.

Or a general pattern of incompetence? :D

No, that's called seal clubbing.

Come on man, don't you feel like your victories are empty, like you don't get them in unison with your determined effort, but the scant recorded epic win that you post on YT was a charity win?

 Perhaps, but it's random incompetence.

If you feel its profit motivated then how do you believe WG profits by conspiring to artificially suppress your win rate? Surely if they're trying to profit by motivation they should be rigging your games so you win more.

Alright, self doubt begone, those majority battles where clueless morons get obliterated and then by default leave me helpless to be effective are representative of reality! Oh oh! That's a lot worse than I'd hoped.
