As the title says... the rigging this holiday spiraled out of control... mathematically incredible losing streaks... This morning is beyond incredible.... 

 

I always say - rigging is the true Nemesis of this game! You think MM is flawed? You think the problem couldn't be resolved with just a small tiny intervention in tier setups? Every mathematically sane person understand that optimal setup is +1 tier matchup. Everyone with functioning brain understands that the current matchup pushes the incentive to go through tiers up to tier X which could only be done with invensting real money (at least in 99% of cases). But WHY should be all this rigging be incorporated as well!? What's the benefit of that?! Players certainly don't enjoy that....

Rigging?

Ha...

 

Yes, I suppose you're right about that, considering that I pulled a 61% winrate last night over a 31 battle session with some tomato friends. :trollface:

 Nope.

 

I feel no incentive to rush to TX. I was pressured by a previous clan to do so, and eventually got one, but I rarely play it. In fact, reading the moans and complaints in the forum about TX, there is more of an incentive not to grind for them.

Every mathematically sane person ought to be able to understand that if their overall winrate is 50.9% then a weekly average of 50.6% is statistically irrelevant. Everyone with a functioning brain would understand that's well within expectation and not go making themselves look silly posting unsubstantiated rigging accusations without providing supporting evidence..

You're pronouncing it wrong, it's not "rigging", its "randomTM"

Also, the game is certainly not like normal, but I'm glad I'm on the good side of the scale:

statistically, streaks of loses are definitely possible and expected on holiday days. I can imagine that today playerbase is on average either young (people who didn't drink yesterday) or hungover. 
so a chance to get a bad team is quite high and being in the worse out of two teams multiple times in a row is entirely possible.
just before christmas I averaged at 34% daily win ratio when overally I win more than half of matches. 
this is not rigged, this is just result of how playerbase quality isn't constant and that it strongly influences your win ratio unless you're able to win the game practically solo.

Then show us your math.

 

Block Quote

 But not 18 times in row... that happened to me few months ago... There is no randomness in 18 losses in a row...

 

Please demonstrate how there is no randomness involved.

Greetings.

 

I am closing this thread.

 

First of all, discussing about Matchmaking is fine, Complaining about it, and being disrespectful toward fellow tankers is not.

 

Think twice before posting, posting for the sake of being negative, is anything but worth.

Thank you all, and happy new year.
