Anyone else has observed yesterday and today being part of really bad teams? As in 'weekend players' bad teams, full of base camping players or players who have no clue where they should go whatsoever. Terrible experience I had these days...

I have a recent WR over the last 80 battles of around 35%, so yeah I noticed it as well. I was hoping that was due to frontlines, but I saw streamers struggling as well lately, so I'm just staying away from the game for now.

yea the quality of player has gone down rapidly this year. Im only an average player but in some battles its like im the only 1 thats played the game before. Lemming trains, suicide runs etc. etc. It really has been bad this past week but hey, schools are out so its to be expected.

Stop paying,stop supporting WG.Game is going down the wrong path for now a couple of years and they are fine with it,not to mention all of the players that stopped playing.WHY would you support bad meta,bad gameplay,and playing with subpar players?so don't

It seems so that the players are on a boycott against WoT.
 
But it can get worse:
Some of the players are using a secondary account and act like trolls:
They play against their team and try to lose every game they play.
And there are plenty secondary accounts.
 
Just saying….:hiding:

To be fair, I have been playing like an absolutely useless Muppet over the last 3 days. Disgraceful.
But even when I ended up top on damage we lost the battles. It is an awful time since the school holidays started. My dimness plus kids playing... Ugh. Time for a break from wot

I'm getting streaks of battles now where 10-13 players on my team have a sub 50% winrate and half of those are sub 45%. Some days this game feels like a chore to play because of these stupid teams, where does the MM pull teams like this from it's just getting rediculous. Tier 10 games where a third of the team do 0 damage, type 5s and FV 4005s that literally spam HE that guarantees damage do 0 damage, how can one be so inept and useless at a tank game? Play4phun my [edited]there is no fun in dying in the first minute with 0 damage. Even WGs bots are more competent than these people.

Anecdotal evidence at best.  Mainly confirmation bias. 

 

Ultimately there is only one thing you can do anyway.  Play your own game.

I keep getting told the average win rate of players is 49% but in every game 3/4 of my team are RED or light red. So either that stat is an utter lie or the MM is rigging games.

Confirmation bias, majority of teams are just the same as always.

there is no bias.
can not out of 37 games - 34 games being total loss.
that I can not play well is an effect. but I'm above average.

Many of us have noticed a shift these days into quick rofflestomps and losses of 13 to 0, 14 to 0 and even 15 to 0 so it's not just you OP.

Even skill4ltu accepts it is just how it is these days.

I have been pondering this for some time and I think the problem is that WG have made it much easier for junior-tankers to climb the ranks more quickly.

When I started out you had to grind each tier and as you did you learned more and more. I rushed tiers which is why my win rate dropped from 52% to 48.7% but I have been slowly and gradually beavering away, learning with each game and getting just that little bit better each time.

But when someone with just a few hundred games can rush up to tiers 6, 7 or 8 and buy a premium tank it's like delivering lambs to the slaughter.

I am finding it frustrating as an experienced player, but imagine what it must be like for someone with sub-1000 games and a 42% win rate, being defeated each and every game. I can't imagine they will stay around for long.

I posted this video in another thread but I think it is very fitting for many of the one-sided experiences these days.
 
Spoiler

I don't know what the solution is. Most players seem to think that skill-based matchmaking won't work but if that won't, what will?

Note: 7 games tonight and 7 losses.

Keep tanking.

No it won't. Sbmm has 0 effect on snowballs.

I concur with SBMM findings and deliberations, but as I say, if that won't work, what will?
