I lost my will to play. Win Rate and Wn8 are inverse. I simply cannot win a game to save my life.

It has been a trying period I agree, though I do have some good games I seem to be struggling getting damage or surviving or winning.  As with anything there are slumps, the harder you try to break the slump the harder the slump is to break.  When I use to coach hockey I would tell the players that you have to just keep trying keep playing and not focus on the slump.  Go back to the basics that got you where you are and work on those.  The slump will pass.  I keep telling my self this every time I go into a battle and eventually the slump does pass/  Hang in there GA in time this too shall pass.

 

Cheers

Hang in there, man.  I know that since around May or so, I have been slowly, steadily edging downwards in overall WR.  That can only mean one thing: I'm losing more than I'm winning overall and since I made my Turn Around Moment at 6687 matches,  my 'normal' has been running at or around 53% up until this last May or so.

 

In the last two weeks I have, since May, seen my overall WR tick back upwards.  We're talking from the start of May to the Beginning of September, man.  That's 4 full months of losing more than winning, which means I've been playing at least 4% below my competency level for some reason.  For 4 months.

 

I quit paying attention to my WR and just started focusing on playing my best.  When I find myself in bad games, I have, lately, really felt like taking it out in chat and that's really not me, but there it is, wanting to jump out and be mean from frustration at losing.  In fact, I acted poorly yesterday in one match and I still feel sort of crap about my behavior, even though, at the time, I felt 'justified,' the truth is that I acted poorly and I knew I was and I still did it -- I do feel bad about that.

 

Less for the insult it was to someone else and more for the fact that I chose to descend to such a level in the first place.  Loss of face ensues.

 

And THAT is an indication of me being a bit triggered that I could let myself behave like that in the first place!  So I can tell you I feel you, because that is WAY out of character for me.  I'm still feeling the pinch of 4 months of losing even though I seem to be coming out of that slump just now.  It's a habitual event and I have to get used to not letting that make me act against my true nature.  Especially not out of a habit response.

 

My will to play has now become dedicated to just playing my best and not letting losses get to me.  I think, honestly, that the better I do that, the more likely I am to win those matches where I have that sort of chance to affect the outcome, because I'm not letting my feels get in the way of my ability to play, which allows me to be a better player even when the proverbial fecal matter strikes the air circulator.

 

Hang in there, man.  Take a break and get some other things to distract you for a bit.  And never forget, it's a game and there's always a reason things happen the way they do.  Just gotta figure out what that is.  For me, I think I was getting a bit complacent in my actions.  Since I refocused, even on bad days, I'm kicking butt left and right and holding my end of the social contract of my team's objective to win.

 

GL, HF & HSYBF!

I sympathize too GA,

 

         I'm pretty much at that point as well.... doesn't matter the tank or the tier... I can't hardly scrape out a win. Most days I'm averaging 1000-1200 dpg and a green WN8 (which has pretty much been my overall average for the last few thousand battles) and nothing has been working.  Even more frustrating is the fact my few wins seem to come in battles where I don't contribute much (I hate being carried more than losing). I work hard to get my overall win rate over 48%.... and then go right back on the wheel for a few days and undo a week or two of hard work.

 

Hate to say it but I've let my temper get the best of me quite a bit recently and have been doing a bit of raging in chat.... but a man can only take so many lemming rushes and top tier AFKs in T9-10 battles before losing it. Seriously, T9-10 have been looking like T3 the last few days.... I've never seen it so bad. 

 

I'm only here for the scavenger hunt right now.... and to keep grinding for the Obj. 268 (only a few days away from unlocking it). Frontline can't come fast enough....

Looks like a heck of a game can't wait to see it.

Me too. I think that is part of the problem. I just cannot find anything to hold my interest. Maybe if I had more time to play....

Ironically the match before that was a blow out. So badly in fact I was only able to squeak out 1.2k in the rev.

I haven't played in a month or so.  Had some other things to do (analog) that seemed more fun than getting frustrated at the game.  Maybe when FL comes back around I'll give it another go.
