Never play after midnight on the weekend.

 

OK I know that the idiots, drunks and otherwise impaired will be out in force, especially on a x5 weekend, but they should be randomly distributed between teams but they never are, at least not for me. 25 battles 5 wins 18 defeats and strangely 2 draws and my longest losing streak ever of 11 in a row.

I am just curious how you see yourself. Have you, at any point, had a good look at your stats? Maybe you should try and improve your own game before you complain?

If 11 defeats in a row is your worst losing streak, just keep in mind that you are still relatively new here...

And If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.  I recommend a nice big glass of single malt -no ice- to put you in the right frame of mind.

Good players are still better drunk than most others are playing sober. Cheers!

I work nights so I tend to keep the same schedule on the weekends. It's abysmal.  Haven't won a single game tonight.  The teams are getting dumber by the day.  I never thought I would see people this stupid but alas, every single game, five dead in the first minute.  There's nothing you can do either.  The normal spots you go to in order to fight it out using your tank to an advantage all overrun, nowhere to go.  Lemmings all balled up in a corner. And tier doesn't matter either.  This game has seriously gone the way of the dodo.

You know the drill, it's not him, he just got bad teams 3330 times.  If it wasn't for everyone else he would have 100% win rate.

I guess I should say thanks for the 8 wins in a row in a tank I'm normally not even allowed to win 50%? :hiding:

I dont understand ? You should feel pretty comfy with your stats between all the idiots, drunks and otherwise impaired...

Nah you got it wrong there dude, open the game have a good chat with your mates, don't press battle, and the go and do something else, I have played many  an online game, just ten minutes in his one and I am actually ready to kill someone, and that is not just a figure of speech.

It is the only game I have ever played where it has this effect, the game is costly, costing me real money at least three times a week, and that is not buying premium tanks, nothing works as it should, but sadly all my mates insist on playing this crap, if I manage ten games at this, then I am doing well.

I see this a lot now, Mediums where TD's should go, and what really can you say about a game that encourages mods?

Allow me to demonstrate how a failure of logic works using your own example.  Idiots and drunks play after midnight; you play after midnight, you are in one of the listed groups.  This is obviously incorrect, yet you use the same form of reasoning to create your argument. 

 

Why should I take you seriously?

Hey OP. Big losing streaks are all part of the game. Get used to those bad days and look forward to the good ones. Just keep trying to improve and those losses will get less (except in the school holidays).

I'm well aware of my own stats and my overall win rate but I'm improving with a 52% win rate for my last 309 battles and the tanks I'm playing just now all have over 50% MOE damage stats with one over 80% so last night was not all my fault.  I know enough about random stats to know that there will be good days and bad days but I seem to have bad days playing late on the weekend even sober.  I'll hold my hands up and admit if I'd played better one of those draws would have been a win so that would make a massive 6 wins out of 25. Please tell me what my win rate should be before I'm allowed to vent after a bad night.

You could perfectly balance the skill of players between both teams and you'll still get loss streaks. Yes it's frustrating when it happens but happen it will even with some sort of skillbased MM. It's the nature of the game unless you want WG to actively force results on teams.

OP you need to read up on large numbers and how they tend to produce unlikely results rather frequently.

Yea I know random doesn't always feel like random. Once had a 7 battle losing streak one day followed by a 9 battle winning streak the next day. Also I know perception is not necessarily reality but I'm not playing late at the weekend any more.

It does? I admit I don't read every article the WG produce but I can't remember WG ever actively promoting the use of mods.I know they created the "mod centre", but that would have been as a reaction to players desires to use mods, not WG's wish for player to use them. Its more like, if you are going to use mods then make sure you use safe mods.

Personally, WG never encouraged me to use mods, it was other players who encouraged me. Now I play without mods and I am much more relaxed.

You should never vent after a bad night on WoT.

 

If it is affecting your mood so much, stop playing and find something more enjoyable to do with your time.

On EU2? Yes. Tbh that never goes well for me neither, less so on lights for some reason. On EU1 after midnight, well that can go both ways. And last night I cut my grind short and went to play something else for a bit. It happens.
