The last 7 days I have 24% wins, which is way below my average. It could be that Im just a bad player, or MM is targeting specific players to loose...

When loosing this amount of matches the game isnt fun playing at all. It might be that Im just a bad player, but the result would end up being the same. Me quitting my premium account, because I dont see any reason to support a game thats no fun playing...

I quit my premium back in Feb, I think. I wasn't happy the way the game was heading.

I genuinely care less whether I win or not now. 

The freaky thing ?  I win more.

Yep, 48 matches today trying to grind silver to buy 3 tier X and 4 tier IX + equipment,..and my mod tells me I only won 11 of those 48 matches, but I performed with a wn8 overall of 1689, which is not bad. So even if I was doing considerably well I still lost, I lost so much that it became, normal. Like yourself, I am also really fed up with this game and I have 6 days of premium left which I certainly will not be renewing, nor will I buy a premium tank till 'they' at least fix 3 things on my list of hate. :sceptic:

Streaks of loses and wins are just part of the natural pattern of results, individuals only effect the outcomes marginally, you're a 48% win player I'm a 52% player, I can expect to have 4 games out of 100 different to you woohoo!

 

You'll have a win streak soon enough but won't remember it as much.

Why do you think would WG target you to lose if it means you'll stop giving them money?

The WG is tempting you to buy back Premium ;). I decided not to extend premium as well once it's finished as i reached my retardation allowance.

Wn8 does not necessarily correlate to winrate.

It's probably a combination of both being unlucky and not a very good player. And it might have to do with what tiers you play as well. Your damage numbers on tier 8 and up don't look very pretty, which leaves you at the mercy of other players playing well, which might or might not happen for several games in a row.

The MM sucks in this regard, seeing 7-10 good players on one team versus 2-3 is frustrating, and the end result is easy to predict.

They put so much effort into matching tanks on both teams, but what they should have also done is to distribute players evenly too. It should be easy to do - just add additional step of distibution when players and tanks are already selected for battle.

Im in the same boat (kinda) saturday was an epic day, i had a 79% WR over nearly 50 games, yet sunday and monday ive had 27% WR yet ive played no differently. One game in the 50b, its was 0-0 when i first clipped a tank, which then died, by the time i was reloaded it was 1-6. What the hell can you do when the team just dies like that.

If you play OK, you'll likely have higher e-peen8 value in the games you lose. 

 

You win some, you lose some.

From my own experience MM is not the guilty one for losing streaks but RNG is and you can't do much about it. Yes, you can overcome it to some point but it might be useless since the game is already lost. This is why I canceled my almost 4 year premium account, because I saw no entertaining whatsoever.

 

Regarding MM, there is no such thing as bad team or good team. There are teams with good spots and teams with bad spots or no spots at all (they all camp).

That is only a problem if you are one of the not good players and if you are not good then why should you win as much as a good player?  And really 7-10 good players on a team?  More like 2-3 on one and none on the other.

And if they did that you would not have good and bad players any more, you would just have average players.  Then how do you distribute the "skill" across teams?

Why does anyone think that, with millions of players playing the game, WG would bother to make individual players lose?

 

When this will just happen naturally anyway.

Well for me before update 1 I was around the 55-65% WR normally for a session since update one I'm lucky to hit 50% usually 45%. The teams seems so coin flippish, you either get an ok team or one full of complete numpties that fold within 2 minutes.

What you have to realise is that in the short term, you will have periods where the MM seems to be screwing with you. Even over longer periods your WR may decline to an extent. However, if you are a reasonable player your WR should increase slowly.

 

Consider that average WR is around 49% and something "good" is in the 52-53% region. This is only like 4-5 games out of 100 that you need to do well in over and above doing your average. It's not really that many and for the rest of the time, you are going to either be carried by your team or your team is going to just fail.

 

What you have to get over is getting upset about it, because that just affects your game play. You try harder, do silly things and end up getting frustrated, which is counter productive.

 

It is for this reason I uninstalled XVM, as although it can be useful tool, it just gets too frustrating when you see that yet again all your team is tomato.

 

The other aspect is playing with stock tanks or noobie crews. This has a huge effect that you might not realise. Basically never play stock and never play over tier 5/6 with a newbie crew. Save up your free XP to unlock the top tank modules and train up your crews at tier 5/6 before you move on.

Well without seeing how you played the last week, it is hard to say if it was you that messed up more than usual or you were just unlucky. Usually it evens out in the long run.

 

I too have days where my average WR plummets down to below 40%. That sort of thing happens sometimes. However in the long run it won't stay that way unless you give up and don't think about what you could have done differently. Sometimes there isn't much you could have changed, but those times are rare. Still, 3/5/7 will net you more uphill battles, so it is more difficult to have an impact there, but you still do have an impact. It's all about learning how to deal with it and make the best of an unfortunate situation.
