For the last five days I have averaged a 63% win rate over 55 games.  Apparently, I should have quit early today.  9 loses out of 12 games.

 

It was pretty brutal.  One of the worst was when both our scout yoloed straight out and immediately died.  They were in the same platoon. Had they not done that, we could have won without problem.

 

I kept thinking, we'll win the next one....nope.  My team kept finding ways to squander a lead, in the games we had one. Mostly yoloing and being too cocky.

I played 7 games today and only won 3, survived 2. It was at that point that I decided to call it a day! Lol

Yeah I feel your pain too. The other night I had about 12 losses in a row. Different tanks, different tiers didn't matter. I also noticed a lot of people playing aggressively.

​wierd for me ive been noticing the opposite with teams who fail to move from the spawn.

This sounds like typical days for me. If I win one game I know that the next few games will all be guaranteed defeats. I am a very poor player. It just seems WG knows this and purposely places me in horrible teams time after time. I have come to expect this pattern of play. I have developed the attitude to expect this.

My day has been pretty good I must say.

 

 

 

Yesterday I kept getting rushed by yolotards who'd die in the next 15 seconds or less. 


 Screw my elders!!!!

Yesterday was great. The day before that better yet. So guess I had it coming.  I should have known and carried harder.

I had a too many shots hitting the dirt or the sky.  Many that hit bounced. If you NEED to carry the match you can not afford to miss or bounce shots. RNG is a lot like a casino.  Sometimes you can't buy a win.

Currently 5/15 33% and the [edited]is real. Getting ridiculous snap shots hitting me, set on fire more times than a bbq and my own gun is trolling the [edited]out of me. 

When all else fails use the report button.

So my question is, what do you guys do in situations like this?  Do you keep pushing or take a break and play something else?

I have a 3 game rule that prevents me from having a bad time on WoT. Tonight it ended with me getting 1 shot by a T92. :arta:

I can't blame the guy he was preventing camping right, silly IS-7 doing 35km/h leading a charge i guess i deserved it.

Since I don't especially care if I earn any of the free tanks I've started playing other games as soon as I stop having fun playing WoT. Which sadly is happening sooner every day. 


I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

seriously,  what is the point of RNG? When it behaves the game is enjoyable and your good play is rewarded but when it kicks in it totally sucks the fun out of the game and just frustrates the hell out of you.

My rule is simple,  if I'm on bad teams and getting blown out and win rate after ten games is below 50% I call it quits.  If close games and having fun then I don't care.  I use wininfo to keep track.

Same here, but I will quit earlier next time.  I think 3 loses sounds like a good rule of thumb.  Although today 2 may be enough.

I was getting decent points, but I quit caring about points some time ago.  I may get the first tank and sell it for the slot.

 

It seems many people do not know how to he points and/or are simply incapable of getting points which leads to poor game play.  They still want points so the change it up, for the worse.  Play too aggressive without the skill and/or tank to back it up.  This leads to getting destroyed pretty quick. 

 

Those two scouts on one of my team were tier 6 in a tier 9 match, although there were not very many 9's.  They must have not liked the match up and drove straight into their death.  One drove straight for the best central spotting location, but went right past. I knew we were about into get screwed over then.  He could have easily been in contention for top tank and points if he would have just spotted instead of rushed the red base.

 

The afternoon was a long sad story of bad RNG, lemming trains to no where, and bad teams.

 

I am just glad I don't care if I earn any of the tanks.  Hopefully things will calm down a bit for a week or two in September between ops.

​depends on how stubborn I am that day, normally I take a break and try again a few hours later, but every so often (typically when im playing well yet still loosing) I get a rush of [edited]to the brain and start thinking this can't possibly continue normally ending with disastrous results.

I decided to take a break. Today all day.  

Someone on the forums said instead of playing wot, one could doing something like learn the guitar.  So I dusted off Rocksmith and played that instead.  No I still can't play the guitar, but it was more relaxing.
