after 30 Battles: 25% WR

after 60 Battles: 38% WR

 

THANK YOU WARGAMING for the most balanced game I have ever played.

I reserved today a lot time to push hard my Chisel contract, but if big RNGesus say you are not allowed to win, then there is no way to turn this arround.

But as many like to say here, you have to fight harder and yeah I could increase todays WR to an impressive 38%.

 

I used to have a 55% WR which is more I ever wanted, but days like that which become more often are just no fun at all. I would even not complain if it would be fair battles, hard fights and you get at least a change. But every match was a blowout more than once even a 0:15. 

Also great when a Tier 8 Artillery could one shot me in my Tier 10 Heavy.

 

And if I see that WG does nothing against this at all, it´s very frustrating and dissapointing.

But this should be no whining or complaining topic as it will nothing change at all, instead you maybe like to share your worst days and I´m curious if somebody could beat my 25% WR after 30 Battles.

 

I hope you all haven´t been in my team today and had a lot more success with the String-Theory?

I will now enjoy the new Wolfenstein Shooter with a few German Beers.

Cheers and a great sunday to you all.

The biggest problem is when you play 400 games and have 37% win rate, how is it possible in a random game? it's not!
The biggest problem is when you lose 20 in a streak! no it's not possible to win lottery every week...

Notice that they only ever blame the team for low win rates? Or just generally look for anything to blame rather than considering what they could have done themselves to turn those losses into wins.

It happens to all of us, get over it. The game most definitely "allows" you to win. 60 or even 100 battles with sub 40% WR means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

it's not about complain, its focusing on a exsiting  problem, i never got 20 win streak, there are some idden metrics out there, but for example who play solo is in disadvantage against platons because because multiple reasons and one of them being that plattons distort the tier balance of the game, there is a trend to make the team with mroe squads also the team with more amount of the highest tier

No kidding. Don’t ever hear how “my teams were great today, carrying me to a 60% win rate”. 

 

If you're the common denominator over 20, 40, 100 games and you lose significantly more than you win....well, it MIGHT not just be your team mates.

They do not post because they want the credit for winning for themselfs, they are ocupied playing in tier 2, with super conqueror in squad, premium tank or some other broken vehicle.
The ones who are not cursed to death do not complain, they think the game is ok, they think they win rate is just based on skill so they can feel good, but no this game is the most random game i haver played

i have had the same streaks as this guy, though not as bad. i had one day at 44% for 40+ games.  last week i had a streak of about 20 games with 87%+ wins.

 

 

winning streaks are fun (though not so when they are constant rolls and you are fighting your own team for damage more than the enemy team)

 

losing streaks, make people want to throw the game in the trash. i.e they are bad for the game.

 

 

this is the MM either giving one team an overwhelming skill, or tank advantage. an issue compounded by bad tank balance.

 

how well do 3x 3500 WN8 super unis in Conquerors match up against little billy (980 WN8) in his 50 TP, Dave (1420 WN8) in his Leopard Prototype, And Bob (1319 WN8) in his M103?

Lol there is no conspiracy. It's pure mathematics. Toss a coin enough times and eventually you will get your 20 times streak. The difference here is that you can get comfortable enough with the game to be able to influence those odds. I played 23 batlles today, solo, won 65% of them. I don't feel the universe is out to get me.

Another good point. I rock out a bad run or two every couple of weeks, at least. Heck, on a micro level, out of 40 games, I might run a losing streak of 6 or 7. The next night, I might win 6 or 8 in a row.

well, to be fair, I have. and my winrate is, indeed, over 60%. there are times when no matter how good a person is, they can't carry. and having  5+ of those in a row? either the system is failing to account for something (player skill, poor tank balance reliant on weights that haven't been updated in half a decade, inadvertently biased team composition relative to map (himmelsdorf, one team gets 4 lights and 6 mediums, 2 mobile heavies, the other gets 4 heavy TDs, 6 Heavies, 2 heavy mediums... )

 

winning streaks are nice, but not necessary to enjoy the game so long as you aren't getting constant losing streaks. losing streaks that go on so that you win practically 25% over 20+ games? those force people away.

 

a player with a high win rate, is good at tipping the balance in close matches, but we all know how close matches are these days.

I play for fun and 100% solo. Never look or check my win rate. Doesn't really bother me. + I'm not a good player and never will be. For me yesterday was bad and today its better. This games like a Lucky Bag. You never know what you're getting.

It happens.

that was a great game you played on Abbey. the definition of a good player winning a close match, through doing essentially all the work.

Thanks. I fought hard in that one. Almost 7K direct damage but I did make a bad judgment call at the very end and died.


I think I had over 4K more than the next highest damage teammate.

yup. was so disappointed our primo didn't push you with the tiger 2. he was playing way too passive just trading shots with you over the ridgeline.  you did just enough to let your team fumble their way to the win ;) .  I feel my mistake was finishing the Caernarvon rather than trying to put my last shell into you when our flank was overwhelmed.
