I swear that some of mine are

 

T20 ...............58% WR

T71 CMD ..... 52% WR

T71 DA .........36% WR !

 

SU85B .........56% WR

SU85 ............39% WR, and I've got an MoE mark on it !

SU122-44 .....55% WR

 

AC4 Exp ......25% WR (recently bought but still)

 

M4A3E8 ......27% WR

 

And so on and so forth. Now I'm not the best WoT player there is so my performance will vary a bit and I will sometimes do really stupid things but I've got the basics down and I'm close to getting my WR up to 50% so I'm not useless and totally dependent on other players to carry me.

Not suggesting that the game is rigged against some tank, me or a combination of the two but you can't help sit there sometimes, look at your WR for various tanks and wonder what the heck is going on. Some tanks I don't "like" and they probably don't suit my playing style but but the diff between the 2 T71's should me minor when you play them mostly as scouts, and yet ..... anyone have a tin foil hat I can borrow ?

To me that number of battles are just luck.  (those tanks you posted are under 100)

Need to go over 500 battles to get sort of true performance of the tank (this is just me)

I don't necessarily disagree with you as I'm not a total stranger to statistics and math but every now now and then you get a "sense" of things not going your way at all, that things seems to be stacked against you (no they're not, I know this)

 

I can switch from either of my other Soviet TD's and do well, get in the SU85 and things go down the toilet

 

I'm not suggesting anything is rigged or anything, just venting a bit since I'm having a less than stellar day on WoT

I cannot explain the T71 dilemma, as it would seem they would be closer in W/R.

 

The SU-85B and the SU-122-44 have similar play styles, in that they both hit hard for their tier, are both pretty fast, and pretty maneuverable. The SU-85 is not fast and maneuverable and for its tier the gun doesn't hit very hard.

 

I'll send the Reynolds Wrap via UPS Express :honoring:

All of mine are cursed, and I have the stats to prove it.

Illuminati confirmed.

My E100

 

battles: 281

dpg:  2291

kpg: 1.03

blocked: 1733

WN8: 1849

win rate: 41.28%

 

I see players that do far less in their E100s, yet win more.

it's not a feeling, it's a fact.

 

this almost seems typical of the teams I get.  yes the enemy platoon had a good game, but when a bottom tier light not only gets his initial spots in, but then also out damages a tier 10 platooned set of russian hover meds... (and everyone else on the team, on steppes of all places)

 

 

I should be somewhat happy that after rage selling it 3 years ago, and buying it back this past December, that I was able to drag the win rate in it up over 50%...  (from ~47is if memory serves correctly)

 

it's literally the only former "end game" tier 8 LT that I could not make work then, and barely now.

 

I think I'm 3 battles shy of 500, at which point I'll probably sell it for good

T54 for me.  After hundreds of battles, it will always remain below 40%

I have two cursed tanks: the JPE100 and the Leopard 1. 

 

I swear, the accuracy on each of these tanks is .80. no matter how fully I am, and how close the enemy tank is, the shell will burry itself into the ground or go flying off into the stratosphere. On the odd chance it does manage to hit the back side of a T110E5, there is a 50% chance it will just not pen for some reason. 

 

It blows my mind when I watch replays of these two tanks and people actually hit/pen normal shots. That is not my experience with these two vehicles at all.

Last time i checked, i was 27% in my defender.  I've lost since then, so it's lower now.  For me, it's cursed because everyone else finds this tank easy to win in

Yes, but no. It's not so much my tanks as... me. Or my account? Something. Probably me. I'm cursed. RNG hates me. Not just this game, either. That's the main reason i don't gamble - so i guess there's an up side to it.

 

It feels like: if there's a 25% chance to outright miss on an aimed shot, i have a 75% chance to fall in the 25%. Hence my chosen game name.

My experience is that WG favors some tanks for a while and then move to others.  But they sometimes go around the horn and then what was unfavored before is now in the current favored position.  Yeah, I'm wearing tinfoil, but I believe this to be true.  It is why I became a tank collector (see other post on this topic - too many tanks). 

 

I don't sell the tanks any more, not even in a rage.  I just put them in a far corner of the garage and let them gather dust and take them out every once in a while to see if they are back on the winning side of MM or not.  When they come back, I pull them out of "reserve" and play them again.

 

It is kind of a shame because I like and sometimes LOVE the playstyle of certain tanks, but I can't abide being in the designated "you shall lose" tank for battle after battle after battle...even when I play well and rank decently at the end battle screen (by XP).

Czech Tier 10. No matter how good the team is I'm on it generally loses. And in the most f@cked up way. Of course I suck in it, which doesn't help.

Some tanks definitely have worse MM and others have more favorable MM. It's a huge part of why the game is considered rigged.
