Pantera, Stb, Pro65, all nice tanks, want nice crew so I need to grind this crap now. Thought about only running 1h booster today, should be enough for 5x on 2 tanks atleast, but neh, might as well do 2 hours today as well. Surely this streak of bad streaks every [edited]day must end some day right?

 

Yeah, it kinda did, it got even [edited]worse. Couldn't get a single [edited] 5x in 2 hours playing 3 tanks.

 

I have no tin foil hats but this really is getting frustrating beyond anything I've ever experienced in gaming...

Log off after 3rd loss in a row. The game will start to treat you better when you don't put up with this crap.

That's nothing. I have had losses in League of Legends for almost one week nonstop.

1.Random teams

2. RNG on penetration, damage, shell deviation from target

3. Not playing with purple equipment, food, directives, "special" shells, OP Premium tank

 

Its like playing poker, it's luck, but if you get good your wins will be more than the losses...

You must understand that you are gambling, not playing a game.

That's why this game is not taken seriously as an e-sport, i see games won or lost purely because of RNG.

Playing top tiers with the marathon going on is an exercise in herding cats as every Rommel_1337_Sniper is out in their Tier X tank that they play once in 3months, trying to take the shortcut by doing the Mastery -route that will literally happen 1/1000 battles for them when they get the perfect conditions for it.

 

I'd strongly suggest platooning up if you plan on playing anything that isn't extremely strong in the current meta or has armor to make the pushes happen when your teammates are all incapable of doing it.

Things are sure to get better. It's the last weekend of the marathon tomorrow ... :unsure:

I always try swapping server first, that often works.

Im pretty confident that its all just confirmation bias when it comes to activating boosters of which i do fully agree with you on though, hence why ive got thousands and i mean thousands of them, just dont use them unless its REALLY needed like and even then i get anxious of using it for this very reason lol

Thanks for comments as I was not able to understand the reason for making this post.

 

Interesting enough when I play for 2h i use the reserves and have never seen any changes to my results.

To be fair they cannot be much worse so that could be a case that you are just too good and try too hard when they are on?

Yeah, a whole bunch of ongoing events in combination with x5 weekends is a recipe for defeats.

 

Like suggested above, a good tactics in such circumstances is to swap servers after 3 losses, and if you lose 1 more, Alt-F4 and call it a day. Tomorrow will be better.

Hearthstone full of RNG and still good E-sports game.

Poker, full of RNG and still competitive game.

It's not about what game has RNG and what doesn't. It's about what players make of it. Everyone has the same RNG yet the top players are always on top.

If it's just crew XP you want. Grind credits on other tanks, buy books, save you the hassle.

Hearth stone is card game, of course it has RNG.

Also last time i checked you can't "buy" an advantage in Poker...

 

The problem is that most players have no idea what kind of game they are playing, and they complain about loosing streaks!

 

Even Skill4ltu, who has almost every tank 3marked, there was a time a month ago ,if i remember corectly, that he completely stopped playing on the EU server

because he had terrible teams and bad RNG in general. Turned to RU for a couple of weeks and then returned.

 

Even the best can have loosing streaks, but the fact that you get players regularly complaining about it shows that most people have no idea how this game works....

I was the same, then I started using them regardless on the basis that more xp is more xp and that's what I needed win or lose. Now when I put them on I often forget I've done it, which is aggravating anyway because I hate wasting time I could be earning bonuses in another tank. :D

This.

 

All of mine have either come free of charge, or have been part of some bundle as a bonus. The absolute best thing to do is to just activate them no matter what and forget about them, because even in the baddest of session streaks you still reap benefits from them. I've had a pretty bad week in the game, but it still gave me enough credits to buy a new T10 and a T8 I unlocked, on top of this I got the last couple of thousand free XP I needed for the UDES 16 top gun, because of the reserves. These things really makes bad streaks easier to live with.
