I'm sick and tired of skillwise imbalanced teams. In 90% of the games, the teams are totally lopsided. So from now on, if it's 0:4 or 0:5 I quit the match immediately Maybe if we all do it, WG will learm to balance the teams (yeah right, but one may dream...). .

Is it WG's fault that monkeys decide to yolo-suicide?

Hint: it isn't.

Or, maybe you could learn to get one kill so it wouldn't be 0:5 but 1:5.

I think it is time for WG to add a wheel of fortune style gameplay to those who barely contribute to the battle.

Just a nice big sparkly wheel that spins when you press battle and then you get an outcome, or perhaps a chicken dinner...winner….

Won a game yesterday where we were 1-8 behind at one point. Never give up!

Once i had a game, 6-11.

Noobs died, and good players on my team side carried, and i was there in my Obj 264 v4, with only 29 HP left, we won and i destroyed last monkey (ebr) on enemy side.

The solution is not that easy, but it's more reliable, learn to carry your own weight and win more.

But those battles where you stage a comeback from that kind of score are the second best kind, after complete steamrolls of the opposition.

Ofc, this can happen. But be honest: how often is that the case? In my experience from 32K battles, once it's 0:4, it's a 90% chance you will lose the match, no matter how good you or even your platoon are.

If there are such, I'm already doing that. If not, well, TBH, I don't give a damn about warning points.

So what? A victory obtained against all odds is much MUCH sweeter.

Stand your ground and fight till the end.

 

This kind of defetist attitude gets my nerves every single time, real life or videogames alike.

 

do you give up that easily irl?

Still not a good option, as you have "32k experience", you must say what i just told you, not the opposite. :)

I made a one line post and you couldn't read to the end of it.

The battles that are close, or you're behind and fighting against the odds to win, are always the best.

 

I had one last night, three of us did most of the work when several team mates died quickly without doing any damage. It was a truly gratifying game.

Recently platooned with a friend; it was 4 versus 11, and we won. One of the greatest battles I ever had :)

Do I see it often? Tbh not really. According to my replay manager, the past week I've average one in about 2 every 10 games, as in scores from 15-5 or lower. So they are not super rare either. But not constant. 

 

MM removing all the "tomatoes" from your team might reduce some. But it's a bit naive to think they will go away with that alone. As even team dispersion is a huge factor to name one.

 

Now ofc there are small easy fixes to the MM WG can do to reduce them at least in terms of balancing the team lineups more. Like giving both teams a stock top tier, vs one team having a stock top tier HT, and them a bottom tier one. 75% crew vs 3 skill crew on lights at least, or clip vs clip, and super heavies vs super heavies. So we don't get a stock 50 120 vs an elite Type 4's on the front, and a light outspotting the other team as they had a sub 100% crew scout with less camo and view range to be as effective as the enemy light... Even with a skill gap.

i come from 5 battles. 2 were water, 2 hard to find  such, and one was decent lost.

It is wg fault, who made those op tanks, gold ammo spam and broken mm? Is it my fault that i play with amx50b in city map vs maus or type 5? If it is, then please, tell me, how can i fix it? Or even better, im playing with is7 and then i have 2 tvp with heat clips, is it my fault again that armor is so useless these days? Or jpze100 who spams heat ammo, because 299mm pen is not enough for that gun?

Just shoot tonks until you die or there are no more tonks to shoot

 

Don't over analyse it

 

Maybe WoT will sort things out, maybe they won't

 

Be ready

Be prepared

Be a future unicom

and always brush your teeth at night before bed
