I have played this game for a long time and seen every kind of BS you can imagine. But today, today is special as I have never seen anything like this:-

 

Wins/Battles:   15 (47) (31.9%)

Efficiency/WN8: 1 359 (64)  1 233 (44)

 

It really doesn't matter what tank/tier I play, result is totally imba match up and lose. Tell me this is random and I will point out the probability of this occurring. So what the hell is going on? New missions, new maps, change in game code in last patch?

It’s random so what’s the probability?

Well, the new stage of personal missions are underway. So everyone is playing solo to do those that might affect the outcome of some battles. I've seen lights yolo arty to damage those. HT's yoling open ground to "bounce" etc. 

 

It will go back to the norm in a week or two.

You forgot to quit playing in time.

And somebody told me that winning is not a requirement to beat those missions.

My win rate hit 31.9%. Thus far:-

  • Lots of paper hats and party balloons have appeared from a hole in the universe and drifted off in space.
  • A team of seven three-foot-high market analysts came from the hole and died from a combination of asphyxiation and surprise.
  • 239,000 lightly fried eggs fell out of the hole and onto the famine struck land of Poghril in the Pansel system. This caused the one surviving man of the Poghril tribe to die from cholesterol poisoning some weeks later.
  •  A man with five heads and an elderberry bush full of kippers have appeared in Southend on Sea.

This is a probability level of 5,122,715,595 to 1.

Oddly this is the phone number of the Wargaming phone number in the no longer functioning CA office.

Stop playing for the day and go do something else.

Totally agree. Same here over 13 battles then I baled out. All 6 clan members online reported the same and did the same. Oh, and BTW why can't we transfer crew into Premiums tanks without cost any more?

Its improbability event caused by my win rate. Currently only crew members wearing 1930's evening dress can be re-assigned

I experience the same at the moment , no matter how hard I try , how many dmg I do , I keep getting in 15 - 2 losing games.

My almost 4 skill cromwell cant hit a target and when I hit it doesnt pen , my arty shoots 3 miles next to where I aim , teams dead in 3 minute games.

There's not much you can do about it , all you can do is make the best of it and hope it will turn around at some point.

You can, not sure where you're getting that from.

I can't. I gotta normalise the probability. Reality is breaking down.

One day I win 70% of games, the next I will lose 70%, and so on. There haven't been many occasions in the last few months where one session has played out similarly to the next, or come close to matching my overall average. It's either way up, or way down. It is a bit weird, but then I think maybe it's just me, and my attention level. Some days I'm more distracted than others... Then I think, am I actually a good enough player that my own inconsistency could have such a bearing? Probably not, but the alternative, that WG is fixing things, seems a bit unlikely. Not impossible; just unlikely. 

Of course, if the game were truly random in terms of team composition, then players at either extremes of the luck spectrum would have entirely different experiences over the course of their WOT career. There would be someone out there who gets way more good teams than he should, and someone who is consistently given dross. I'm just rambling by this stage, but I do sometimes wonder if there is some sneaky backdoor code that tries to nudge the odds where necessary. If it were done on a game by game basis, you might never know. On a session by session basis, however...

Are you sure it's not ​2079460347 to 1?

It's so bad I wish I hadn't reinstalled - WR dropped off a cliff, average damage down because one team collapses almost immediately and you're either chasing or getting roflstomped. 

 

The interesting bit is that I started playing arty again. Force of habit from CW I relocate after every shot... Remarkable amount of 44% players able to counter battery me each time I fire. 

 

We've got a month of this - Caern X marathon is just gonna prolong the bot fest.

Glad you're back but your WR for the past month is higher than your global also your DPG is higher!

 

Considering the AX marathon starts the second half of September, do you think we'll still suffer this bot fest?
