the player base seems to have fallen yet again by several tactical bounds.  Seems regardless of the server, there appears to many more new or just noncompetitive players on.  This usually means they are on the same team as I am.  I grow tired of being one of the better players (and if you look at my stats, that is saying a bunch about how bad my team mates are), and I simply don't have the skill to carry teams like this.  this leads to less XP, less credits etc...

 

How about since no one plays as a team anymore, we get rid of the team aspect and simply have an 'every tanker for themselves' kind of game with the payout to the players that do better regardless of side?  at least when I do poorly, I cant blame a bunch of others for the loss.

 

1 for 9 today, all teams have been good players (them) against not so good players (us).  

 

Frustrating as hell!!!

Unfortunately this has been my expirence as well.   I usually cant carry the game, but I try to make good decisions... crapRNG today, and terrible games playing against groups of IS3A's and the like.   I had not played for 5 days or so before yesterday/today.  I come here to play a game and enjoy, but the gameplay has become terrible and frustrating instead.  This seems to be the future of WOT it seems. I will just go play something else instead of wasting any more money in this game if its going to always be this way.

It's a school vacation week.  You're playing with 8 zillion pre-teens.

But I sympathize.  That's a crappy start to a day.

There are times where you cannot win all of the matches or a majority. You are being near sighted, keep an eye out on your W/L metrics over 1k battles to tell if it is you or your teams. You are also the only constant on your teams, so you should figure out a more effective way to change your matches in your favor.

 

Also as mentioned before its a holiday where kids are at home having fun playing game.

 

My advice OP is to chill out.

I have had days like that.  They suck.  I have said 100 times on these forums that a bad losing streak is always much worse than a good winning streak ever is.  Human nature.

Completely agree, I have had 1-12 starts only to come back and finish 16-14 I dont get many hours to play in a day but you got to get in there and do damage and get kills if you want wins to swing more your way.

Totally relate to this experience.  Everyone in here says no cheat mods, but lately, seems weak spot hits are at a significant increase.  Call me crazy, but the evidence is there.  When mid level rank players pen every time and at the weak spots, I call BS.

Had a couple 7-9 loss streaks the past few days. MM Rng and all.

Yesterday i thought a t29 with 'decent' stats would help me fight a lor40t so i could get my x5 VTU daily.

Just sat there 10m away never fired or moved while the lor peaked out and we traded shots as i fell back.... waiting for support.

Relocated 50m away and he got farmed doing 0 damage.:hiding:

And the common denominator to your crappy teams is YOU... :facepalm:

 

 

But in today's society, it's never one's own fault. It's always best to blame others, for their shortcomings... :great:

Can I earn my "big boy pants" too.

 

Unfortunately, I am pointing out the obvious and I don't give sympathy to someone that "thinks" they are good at a video game and chooses to blame everyone but themselves...

 

Op is the common denominator to their crappy teams and has no one to blame but themselves for their current streak.

Had a bad 3 week skid went from 52.61 to 52.51 I couldn't buy a win streak. It happens sometimes you get the bull sometimes you get the horns. It all evens out in the long run.

I literally start every day with 3-5 losses in a row.  Maybe 1 day a month, it's only 2 losses.  I do not care.  I only care that I'm a good player and that I'm getting better.  I love the game and although I want to win every battle, there are too many factors beyond my control to make me care about it.  Let me pick my team or give me SBMM and then we can talk about whether wins/losses matter.

Any player from great to terrible can have a streak of wins or losses through no fault or effort of their own.

Lets try thinking here for a minute. Aimbot mods ONLY AIM, they don't magically guarantee you're going to hit let alone pen so using the fact that someone penned you multiple times IS NOT proof of them using an aim bot. More than likely they just aimed well and got lucky since aim bot suck at aiming unless you're completely stationary.

That's how my day started yesterday. Poured my first drink after loss 10 and soon poured another, then didn't really care at that point anymore....
