Anyone else notice soon as you enable 100% xp boosters your RNG goes real bad and you get many losses in a row

I'd love to see some proof.

 

Sadly, proof in these cases are as rare as proper Pingplotter reports when people complain about lag. Would sure be interesting if you could show e.g. five games in a row with demonstrably 'bad' RNG. Doubt that will happen, for obvious reasons.

 

(I'd focus on actual issues if I were to post on the forums, but I guess that's a matter of taste.)

I play with HE only with stock componentry, without boosters or premium time, and my WR skyrockets as my teams carry me to victory.

WG is not going to discourage people from buying boosters.

Faster you get to the next tank the less gold ammo you are spamming

Can you show us the data you collected and which led to that claim?

Hi, do you understand the difference between a question and a direct statement?

Wow, you must have used xp boosters from the very begging!

Nope.  I get win streaks or loss streaks regardless of personal reserves.

 

That's random for you.

Let's say it really was a question - last time I checked, questions had a question mark at the end - it was a loaded one with a clear implication/claim.

When you ask "Did you notice how X happened?", you imply that X really happened. You claim X to be a fact.

No it really was a question. Do you actually live on these forums? It seems so, maybe you need something more productive in your life, you seem like a salty forum lurker. Just saying.

Is it a question if it lacks a question mark.

 

See what I did there? Anyway, you're still making a claim with no proof. Did your dog eat the replays, or something?

No... but that might just be me. 

 

But if you feel it's like that, then don't use them. As if you win sooooo much without them. Then the win bonus is a booster on its own anyway.

No. Because it doesn't happen.

Observational bias :)

 

Might feel like it, but in the long run it's just random....with a bit of skill on top to go either above ....or below... average :)

Well here's proof!

Played 12 battles Tuesday evening with 2 hour boosters, XP, free XP and crew XP,  lost 9.

Played last night with same boosters on, 14 battles, lost 4.

So there's proof it's totally RANDOM:)

No, I have normal games, I have no difference in performance no matter what boost I have to my account.

So I can only put the blame loses on my own incompetence
