Every loss or win, mostly loss, one team  has only had 1,2,3 kills vs 15. You're matchmaking is horrendous. You're gonna lose players if this keeps up. You can use win % to mix up the teams instead of putting all on one side or the other. It's rare to look up and see the match close. Players need to quit going along with it saying "oh it varies". No there's no excuse for it. Actually it's been a problem for many years. FIX IT!

Obviously it's your games if more losses are blowouts than wins since if every game was a blowout like you say then they'd be even. I have not kept track but I'm pretty sure the majority of the games I play are not blowouts but they are to be expected, it's the nature of the game mechanic.

I rarely see blowouts. Most are a 7 -10 min battle. Had a few run to the last couple minutes.

You got my vote, but wots doesn't care. Quit spending money on the flawed game and just maybe that would bring about an improvement to these concerns...just a tomatoes thoughts.

Advantage for (D) is bo-games are fast turnarounds so make more cash. IMO they are designed this way.

Dont tell them how to make the game better 1.) they wont listen 2.) they are arrogant pricks and I want people to quit so they can go in the Russian unemployment line... hopefully people throw rocks at them :)

To be fair to WOT it means the MM is working (based on tanks). Before one tank could could obliterate the other team if MM was off. Now it's a tidal wave effect. You take two tanks on a side and they can't counter then it starts to steam roll and becomes easier to win with each kill. I still hate the 3-5-7 and +-2. Well MM mostly works. There are still those games where the other team has all the skilled players.

You ought to keep track.

Being "pretty sure" is really pretty "not worth the paper it's not written on".

 

The nature of the game has been proven by numbers of people who do keep track, that the game makes way too large a proportion of the matchups sickly biased.   It's pretty close to 50% blowouts for many of the newbies who're still learning the game. 


 

It's really not to much effort to record what is needed.   Seeing your scores over time can be an eyeopener.    Ever wonder why none of the stat-sites follow actual scores?

You can not only discover how often you see blowouts, but you can also tell exactly how often you were on the strong team and how often on the weak one.   That will tell you exactly how your "random" is going.      It takes more than a couple of days to tell whether random is working for or against you.    You might discover there is a huge difference in this game between real random and "variable".

I've started looking at stats after a blowout battle.  Most of the time, the losing team fired lots of shots, but didn't do much damage.  The winning team, fires and does lots of damage.  Also, a much higher rate of "missed" shots.  Shots that either miss the target completely or do no damage.  RNG appears to "pile on", making it tough to dig out of a 2 or 3 tank hole.

You wonder why stat sites don't show scores?  go look in the mirror.  nobody has seen your data either.  Why are you hanging on to it so tightly?  ...hypocrite.

 

It's because you really don't want to find out what's going on.  You just want to come here to btch and moan.  So not only does that make you a hypocrite, but also a troll.

Well I can tell you this, I played quite a few games yesterday trying to unlock some tanks so I could move crews, I don't need to write down that I know I had very few blowouts and one of them was actually close if you looked at more than just kills, my HP counter showed both teams were about even right up until the ten minute mark, lots of one shots on both sides, and unfortunately they had more autoloaders that we did.

Writing down, how primitive.

 

 

Three games out of twenty-three in the last three days with more than a ten tank differential.  That said, anecdotal data is anecdotal.  

 

Why don't the stat sites report differential?  I'm guessing it's not in the API.

Ya, some of it is pretty funny but not half as funny as your brown nose billy goat routine. Didn't anyone warn you that you don't eat the yellow snow? :P

So how did you acquire that?     You don't think others like would like having that info formatted for them (I've already got mine)  ?
