OK, for everyone who has had a bad day, please put down here your longest losing streak from this well balanced and fair game.  That is in a row.  Whether or not you got to the point of just getting into a battle and just pushing your tank forward and shooting so you aren't warned, to suicide by accidentally falling off a cliff, it's the team you were on losing streak.

 

So far for me, it was 9 straight games on the Asian server last week.

 

Beat that

Are you contributing to your teams or just expect to win by clicking the battle button ? I will admit it was a horrible weekend and its only going to get worse as more bot like players end up in high tier games.

I don't know but these teams are [edited]terrible. 38% win rate out of 34 battles because every time I go to where I'm supposed to by the time I get there, or by the time I begin engaging enemy tanks, the other flank implodes like it's being guarded by amoebas. Every single time I get put on the team with window lickers while the other team gets stacked to high heaven. It's getting to the point where I'm ready to walk away from the game. When you have a Match Making system in place to blatantly [edited]people over they will get tired of it. 

 

Exactly my experience last night. I had to claw and scratch for every win. Not one easy game.

I remember just laughing the whole way.  I played well, played poorly, got lucky, got unlucky, and they all ended in losses.

Some little guy behind the curtain at OZ flipping the levers on you. But it does make us feel better knowing everyone gets the shaft in this game.

Last weekend I started the On-Track for the Italian line. 

 

Got to the Tier V everybody was whining about and won six games in a row while stock.  I must be a superstar.  Where is all that Blue and Purple in my signature. 

Just absolutely HAD to jump into TeamSpeak and tell the world - or actually just the clan members whose mother woke them up early to get the chores done - "This tank is a BEAST in the RIGHT hands!!!"

 

Pride goes before destruction,

and a haughty spirit before a fall.

 

Then the 'fall' came.  It came with a vengeance.  It was my high (low) water mark for losses in a row - 7.  Teams were seas of Red, teams were seas of Blue.  No matter.  Pride goeth before destruction...

 

Lucky for me it was late in the evening.  Called it a night and hit the sack

 

Popped up in the morning all refreshed and ready for action.  Forgot the travails of the night before.  Figured I'd start by crew grinding in my Matilda.  Lost 3 in a row for a multi-session record of 10 straight losses.  Almost went tilt then saw that a Newb (CannonTarget) in our clan logged into TeamSpeak so decided to yak with him.  He was platooning with CocoBabyGirl so I jumped in.  I had walked CannonTarget through some basic techniques earlier in the week so this was a chance to see them in action live and in color.  Being recently humbled, I was in a mind to teach and guide

 

It is better to be lowly in spirit among the humble

than to divide the spoil with the proud.

 

It was fun.  Got out of the losing streak.  Didn't dominate, but had fun at Tier V and watched a new player grow.  Hope he sticks with it.

NA.

18 as I recall.

Long time ago, like the first year after the game went live.

Longest losing streak I recorded was

13 (2 were draws), in my JPanther2, NA east, during patch 9.13

 

longest win streak

13, in my luchs, NA east, patch 8.19

13, in various tanks, NA east, patch 8.6

 

I seem to get more long streaks when I stick to one tank. I usually switch up my tanks/tiers, which probably limits long streaks

My worst losing streak was 13 straight losses.  Only has happened one time.  I came close a couple times up to 12, but beyond that it's been 8 or 9 before a win.

 

 

On the plus side, my best winning streak so far is 16.  Think I'm ahead of the House in that regard.

17 in the Mutz.  I remember it like it was yesterday.  It was back when you could get crewmen by playing a tier 8 rental that you unlocked by playing some low tier rental.  I was grinding the last crewman on a Sunday night/Monday morning.  Two straight hours of losses, 12am-2am.  The thing that killed me was before that streak I was +10 WvsL.  At the end of the grind I was -10 around 3:30ish in the morning.

Warning: Math follows.

 

Assuming we'd get alarmed and start spouting conspiracy theories if we experienced a losing streak that was, say, 20 long.

Assuming the average chance of losing is 50%, the chance of 20 losses in a row is 1 in 2^20, which is approx 1 in 1 million.

 

For every thousand battles you play, there is one chance in one thousand of having such a streak.

For every thousand players who play a thousand games, one of them will probably have such a streak.

 

Or alternatively,

The US server averages about 6.8 million games per week, so on average, one player will experience a 20-game losing streak every day.

Must suck to be that One Player.  Can you imagine it?  That One Player losing 20 times a day.  They must have a serious determined streak in them.  Or did I get that wrong?

I am sure there was a longer losing streak when I first started playing back in 2011, but maybe 4 or 5 in a row that I can remember (of course I am also drunk most of the time...)

everyone know what Im talking about but theres more to losing streaks than just bad games, you can predict a losing streak because its more than often over hours and then for no reason it stops - this is why people get frustrated with the game, from your very first three games you can tell how the next few hours that day will be like - playing better dosent break it its almost like something you just survive through - put the game down for a few days and hope it changes - wins and losses are absurd in this game but if you lose 4/5 games just better to put the game down, I have never once went from a losing streak to a winning streak in this game - its always been consistent one way or the other

I took time to flip a coin 500 times and the most heads or tails I could get in a row was 5.

Lost 9 in a row last night, then finally broke the string with a good game in the Progetto.

I tried different tanks, different tank classes - nothing would work.

Like Guido, I performed well (top in XP in three of the 9 losses), I had some bad games (in one game I delivered one damaging shot before getting nailed by 5 guns - put myself in a bad situation that time).  

It "feels" to me like your armor can't block anything during these losing streaks (I played the Obj 252U a few times thinking that would break the string...it didn't).

It "feels" like every module gets damaged and every crew member gets killed during these streaks. 

Call it luck, call it rigging...I know for sure it's not fun.
