I swear I must be locked into a "loosing bracket". I recently got the Lynx 6x6 (like this morning) and I after 20 games I have 25% win. Like wth is going on. And this is spread to my other tanks too. 8/10 games the teams just fold with a close to 0/15 loss. I might just be my "bad luck" but I needed to rant about this. The frustration is just making not wanting to play this anymore. Been the same all week. Like what is going on. Is there a carry requirement to break 53% winrate?

Losing*

 

And it's just a delusion, a streak of bad luck.

"losing" correct. Frustration got the better of me

So you had 5 unlucky battles, the rest pretty much went as expected.

 

Come back when you have 200 battles in it.

Don't focus on winning or you'll go nuts in here

Focus on damage and credits with winning as a bonus

Well as I stated. It's not just the Lynx. It's all the tanks. And no I don't focus on pure winning. But when a team folds too fast you can't do much either.

Dont play while tilted, take a break and come back later.

No such thing, no. We all get losing streaks sometimes, no matter how improbable (and they're not even that improbable) they are. In any random system, it'd be surprising if improbable things never happened, it'd be a clear sign that something strange is going on.

 

I also found that particular tank to play quite differently to its predecessor, so you might simply still be learning it (and upgrading it?).

Losing streaks are a thing. Same as win streaks. Don't see people coming here complaining about those though...

Actually, in my case, if I play a game where fast clicking/moving/jumping/whatever is the goal, my brain still runs at that speed for about an hour or so afterwards.

 

It's like an overdrive mode, sounds funny but I've noticed I've made much wiser decisions while playing WoT after I had to do something quickly elsewhere.

Had a good few platoon battles this evening - ended about 20% winrate. Was fun, though :)

Just make sure you really focus on doing damage and don't just pretend that you do.

 

I've had a terrible few weeks. I've been playing some of my favourite Soviet vehicles for Union 12 and I've managed only one First Class tanker award and I've had some terrible walkover losses which I simply couldn't even begin to turn around. 

 

Loss streaks happen both with individual vehicles and just across the board. Even with my best tanks I've had days where nothing goes right. Small sample size is relevant. If you're any good with a vehicle then it should come good. 

 

I've just checked on my Skorpion G stats after something I noticed the other day. The average damage is pretty poor, (I don't like it much) but it's fairly comparable to some of my average damage in other tier VIIIs that aren't awful in terms of WR.

 

1117 HP average is hardly impressive, but enough to deserve only 10 wins from 43 battles? Nope. It will get better if I choose to continue to play it, but I'm not sure that I want to.

You are correct. Some days I win almost every game and all shots seem to hit and penetrate. Other days everything misses or does only critical damage, and I lose all games even I do well myself.

What causes this is a good question. It could be my form that day. But I'm not good enough to carry a team to victory or bad enough to doom one to a loss. It could be selective memory, you only remember the losses, or the day with many losses. Or it could be that WG has a system that gives you a certain RNG each day.

If you use a loose bracket then your TV will fall off the wall. ;-)
