This is the dumbest comment ever, because anyone who has played this game knows you can literally play your [edited]off in a game and due to the games ridiculous matchmaking there is nothing you can do to win that match alone or with a decent team.  There are times when I can predict before the match starts if my team is going to lose due to the craptastic matchmaking.  Another WG apologist.

 

Bull, as I got to understand the game better and play better, I won my fair share of "impossible to win games."

What do you think the Kolobanov's medal is for?

People underestimate the impact an individual can have in this game.

What matchmaking are you referring to?

 

Either way, the fact you are only 1/15 of your team matters a lot more than how good you are. I am one of the top players on console and I still win 63% of the time because of it. You aren't going to win every game just because you're good though, which people seem to think.

You have misconstrued my statement to another poster. 

 

I agree with everything you have said regarding game play above - except the last bit about matchmaking. "Bad" MM might give some advantage to one team, but I would not call it a reliable indicator of outcome.  On the other hand i find how the team disperses and acts in the first minute  is a strong indicator of win or loss - assuming the red team isn't as bad, or worse.

 

But the poster said he could tell how the game will go based on the first shot he fires .  Which cannot be taken seriously, and hence my comment that he suggesting the game was in charge of his wins, (and therefore his next 20 shots had no impact on the outcome of the game.)   And additionally it suggests that the game outcome is orientated to him above the other 29 players... etc.

this is the way i see the game :

 

you do good one day & give a boost to your wn8, then the next day the RNG is ramped up slightly against you.

 

you dont do a good, you seem to be having to fight harder for less results.

 

i feel that this game tries to balance you out.

 

Sometimes that what it seems like. My buddy and I played our 45TP's Sunday night and won 11 out of 14 games. Last night got our butts kicked running the same tanks 3 games in a row and gave up.

Sorry, but 1 individual isn't going to make a difference in a 15-2 or 15-5 loss.

According to Wn8 I've only won 5 battles out of 22 played since the 12th. 19 out of 47 before that. I have a 52% WR that was increasing, but I can't get past 52.88% before the string of losses begins and I've had nothing and I do mean NOTHING! but complete steamrolls or just plain idiotic people with out a single clue. Wn8 increasing but it seems that every match is unbalanced and don't get me started on the RNG rolls that fail to kill the enemy or send the shells in the dirt at 50 meters or into the upper plate of the enemy who is a one shot to you.

I know stats aren't a big deal, but seeing the long strings of losses really just pisses me off. Especially when there isn't a damn thing you can do to prevent them except turn this broken pile off.

 

 

EDIT: just lost another battle. Almost tinfoil hat territory since I have x2 xp bonus for the rest of the month.

When you get above 51.5%W/L you ARE put on statistically weaker teams. You are there: 1. As the hard carry for your team so that those weaker players have "potentially" high W/L and so that they feel like they have a chance/like playing 2. You are there to probably lose to maintain balance.

 

No need for a tinfoil hat. It's real. You were right all along.

 

(Console ported the same basic MM and tank value weights from the original PC game. If you go back and look at years of games and their XVM % alongside a cross section of crap-unicum players the trend is clear. Tweaks have been made over the years by both platforms but many structural elements are still in play)


Tanks must always push the battle, maneuver terrain, gain position, coordinate, and devastate the enemy.

Play like a TANK not a pill box! 

Move away from bad engagements and towards favourable ones.

Relocating does not make you a coward loser.

Gets frustrating and seriously makes the game start to feel so much less fun. I like a challenge, but there are times where it doesn't actually challenge you and just makes you instantly lose multiple times. That's not balanced at all, thats borderline rigging.

It shouldn't happen. Multiple complete steamrolls is insane! It doesn't make sense and it's not even the same players each time. I've never had a streak this bad and I've had the game a long time.

 

The never ending one sided steam rolls is why I quit. Nothing worse that reloading for the third or fourth time since the game started and you notice you're the last player alive.

Actually... They definitely can but it needs to be done in the beginning to prevent it from being 15-1 in the first place. Those matches only happen because of snowball.

Have you got a source for this?

Depends on what the individual does throughout the battle. I have ganes where i denolish people, get denolished and other games i play sort of middle ground. Take my iron rain for example, i know fine well i can dump a full clip into one tank and eliminate it, when i come across 3 enemies, i have a tendancy to dump my 3 shotd into each player to slowly witlle all HPs down rather than kill one player. It may seem donkey if taken in the way if i done it in the later stages of the game but if i flank a stronghold/chokepoint. Dumping one full clip into one tank could mean i kill a tomato but leave 2 unis unscaved. Whereas if i damage all 3 i have their attention and the min they turn their back and go into panic mode, mistakes are made when my team pushes and wrecks them like what happened earlier today which led to a win.

Isn't this in the description of their MM on how it works? It's been brought up many times and there was one of their documents that described it.
