I know its just confirmation bias because I don't notice it the other way round so often... when you still have your X2/3/4/5

But you get 1st place on a team with steel wall, top gun and or high calibur and you lose.  Next battle you win with 0 Damage...

Had that happen several times over the weekend. 4k dmg in my E50 and lose. Do 1 shot of dmg (and then get wrecked by 3 arty) and win. #feelsbadman

I get this too a really nice game / performance but we loose and then a crap performance or one of those steam rolls where low damage is shared around but the daily x2 win.  Sometimes I stay and watch willing the team to loose so I can have a better crack at the daily :)

Yes it happens. 

Saturday, playing in platoon, we had a good battle, lots of dmg, but we lost.

Next battle, a X5 both died early, no dmg, easy win, bottom of the team sheet. 

 

Not sure how this fits in, but the 3rd platoon member was top scorer in both battles.

 

It only happened the once during our session.

Why have you been MANAGED to a 45%WR and not 50 or 55%?  Why specifically that number and why were you selected?

It happens a lot here, especially with Maus & Kranvagn... 

Every time I deal 4k+ damage my team lose, but when I die.... my team start farming HP all a sudden.... ._.

Because they haven’t bought enough premium tanks yet?

Most part of huge dmg, frag battles is defeats or draws. Why?

Weak teammates, wrong tactic on your side by teammates, redline camping toptiers or flankers on your side, teammates rushing into deathtrap in first minutes (cliff's mid, fishermans greenline etc. ;) gives you opportunity to use almost all HP pool of enemy team. Sometimes skilled players can win these battles but mostly they ends with defeat 1vs5 etc. And again - even if u are able to outplay 1vs3 or even 1vs5 casual tanks in good hulldown, you cant outplay focusing SPG's. 

 

This time Im not talking about 7+k from redline in camping battles.

Not 0 damage but I notice that when there is a big roflstomp everyone does less damage and it's more spread out among the team. The max is like 2-3k and almost everyone has at least 1000 damage done. Not really fun. While the enemy team has like 6-7 players with 0 damage lmao. Even less fun.

Well every time you press battle it could swing either way. Either your team has 14 players with an average WR of 45% or the enemy does.

 Wow the infamously qoute ‘the game is as bent as a nine Bob note’ is by wsatnutter from the ‘dice’ thread from 2012 which held the record for the longest thread at about 50pages on this forum for about 6years until beaten by , ‘the right to be forgotten’ thread started by I can’t remember but I swear his username stated with the letter T:unsure:

 

ps I know way too much about this game :hiding:and off to the pub to blot it out :izmena:

Its not just you, its «players like you». Get better > do better. Stop trying to explain your failures by blaming others. Its YOU who is the problem.

 Computers do what we tell them.  And they're pretty good at random numbers. 

 

It's people who are notorious at patterns - seeing them where they don't exist, that is.

RNG: *exists for everyone*

Tomato: "It's your fault I suck"

 

Ever considered that a large part of the skill in this game is to engineer situations where you don't rely on the RNG?

Like flanking an enemy to easily pen it in the side or rear,  instead of engaging from the front.

 You do more on defeats because your team are less likely to be hoovering up the easy damage.

 What about when I had a win streak of 16 in a row?

Was I outgunned and outclassed in all those games?

If so,  I guess that's a very well done to me.

 

Or just maybe,  it's not rigged and it's because you are bad at the game and outmatched most of the time by default?

To be fair, he did start with

"I know its just confirmation bias"

 

OP is just a vent, and not a serious post.

That awkward moment when winning while doing nothing means someone else carried and got good XP but let's pretend it's all a big conspiracy instead.
