What do you do? Because lets face it...its not fun. Do you quit? Change tanks? Shift to tier 3? Get good? (that's a joke), one tank can only carry so much. I'm out of ideas.

Just push through it, I bought the STRV S1 last night and lost my first 6 or 7 games in it... Just keep playing, you'll turn it around eventually. I finished last night with a 45% win rate after 22 battles, still had fun, even with a stock crew.

Been there - not fun. When I get in a bad streak I switch to arty to calm down!

I once had a 53 game losing streak, and since that point I try my best to just stop after 5-10 losses. You are never guaranteed a win while losing game after game, and you'll often start playing worse the more you lose, so it's usually a good idea to just step away for a while.

Take a break, step back and do something else or play something else then go back later and see how you get on.

 

I find the more you play and lose the worse you play.

If you got a Conqueror gun carriage with silver to burn I highly recommend firing all premium HE with the food consumable mounted. Then after a while you won't care about winning or losing because it's hilarious to use something so utterly broken like that.

 

Better yet, I found out in another thread that an arty player was able to FaceTime their SO while playing so if you need to talk to someone or prepare a pot noodle or something else in between reloads, you can! It'll help take the load off in no time.

 

Of course that's if you don't mind being seen as a completely sadistic bar steward. :)

I don't pay too much attention to whether the team wins or loses unless, there's a X5 on,i'm grinding and have used XP multipliers, am pulling top 10 numbers across both teams and am still unable to get a win.


 

Playing it safe

So I gave that a try and my first map was Himmelsdorph. Go figure! Talk about getting trolled. Oh yeah, we lost that match too and I dished out 1400 damage. Sometimes you're better off banging your head against a wall. It may hurt a bit more, but it will make you forget about WOT for awhile.

I try to pick a tank with which i know that i will punch above my weight and hope that MM is at least providing a fighting chance.

That brings me to idea posted somewhere in this forum that good preformers on the losing side should not get penalized. That would decrease the unhappiness related to MM or just bad teams.

there was a time where losing streaks were fantastic, and that was the ops that required you to be in the top 5.

reason is if your team does awful (hence the loss) it will be very easy to place first.

 

other than that though if you get a losing streak, either keep playing untill it is over or get off for a bit and then try again later.

If you feel like RNG hate you today just close the game. Play something else.

Works just great.

Because I'm dumb and hate myself enough I usually just keep going until I break even on wins. I think the smart idea may just be to take a break for a bit.
