I've played around 15 games this morning, and in these two games the teams were just so incredibly bad, I had to take a screenshot...

 

Is everyone on a hangover after the combination of Easter and April Fools? :facepalm: Both matches ended within 5 minutes from the start, and came one after the other.

You are lucky!

My teams are made from multiple lists like yours.

MM gets the bottom two players from 7 lists and adds me as a 15th player.

:B

i think its just a continuation from before patch 1.0 - very high % of games end in team wipes

I have had a week of tomato loser teams, my win rate has taken a serious dive. I am about 20 losses behind now, it will take a long time to climb back to my "normal" win rate. I know I can have an impact in only some games, but still statistically I should be getting about 50%/50% winning and losing teams. For example I am grinding a Tier VII Japanese heavy, O-Ni I think it is called. I had a 56% win rate on that tank but now I am losing in it practically every game.

 

I have a theory why I have such lousy MM for many days in a row: Wargames is trying to make me frustrated and spend money on the game. It was December when I spent real money on this game the last time and now their algorithm tries to make me spend again.


The last time I wrote about this theory the whole thread disappeared quickly. Let us see how it goes this time.

Looks like a normal game to me.

 

Ended within 5 minutes you say? I thought 2 mins 49 was average.

I've had some phenomenally bad teams recently too, I couldn't face doing this weekends mini marathon due to the rage I'm sure trying to win 15 battles would induce :)

 

Hopefully, normal service will be resumed soon !

Yet another discussion of how badly a player is done to by the MM.

 

Quite oddly of course  This MM clearly gives people the flip side.  No one ever comes onto the forums complaining about that.

 

Today I got 2 top guns and 3 high calibres due to the MM.  I hope that restores cosmic balance.

If they are the worst teams you have ever had then you have been very lucky.  Almost everyone did damage,

Seems normal.

shot_049.jpg

Ensk battle.

You see, our batchat 25t ap decided to farm damage and instead of intercepting 13 75 going mid for our arties, went to hit some td .... so 13 75 (unintercepted by batchat and others) ended up smack in the middle of our arties, so our slow stuff had to go and deal with that while their team fully went and flanked our heavies ..... he lived long enough to reload his drum o.0.

I've removed everyone's name to not name and shame, but that batchat was unapologetic XXXXXXXXX.

 

shot_050.jpg

Mannerheim line .... our scout decided to camp base, wz-132 .... he didn't counter spot for us, so we lost the mid to vision games, followed by a quick push through the north. I got spotted after shooting against their scouts (seems i hit a blind shot :) ) .... turns out a rock there is very badly modeled. :(

When ppl poked him over it, he decided to suicide scout into their heavies.

No comment, though the guy did write back some very racist/xenophobic stuff.

 

The huge influx of really bad lights like the 13 57 has not helped MM either.

How come no-one EVER comes on here to complain about winning 10 games on the trot?

I want to complain.

I just had a battle on Glacier, in my Wolverine. We won 15-14, it went the full distance, the time warning was sounding. 

Thats almost a full 15 minutes. 

Ok so I got Ace Tanker, 5 kills, was the only survivor out of 30, but come on WG, what are you playing at? Making me play for 15minutes!

Unfair. 

 

Will that do as a complaint when everything goes right for a change?

15 minutes is way too long.  They should be paying you for that level of endurance.

If I wrote that, yes, it would be a complaint, because I would be a nervous wreck by the end of that match. I start shaking violently under pressure...heartbeat jumps to 200BPM... I'd think WG is trying to kill me! :izmena:

 

:P
