Funny I have been criticized for suggesting the same thing, but yeah I hear you, I will be running along nicely before I activate and then the next hour after I do, it goes down hill, and it has been doing that for a while now. I have stopped using reserves.

First 4 games yesterday were losses, then I activated reserves for 2 hours.

 

 

Maybe you're doing it backwards?:)

I stopped using personal reserves because if you activate 3 of them, you will be rigged for loses, so no, it's not you, it's piss poor programing.

My advise is, don't ever use them unless you wish to go on a losing streak.

so then explain why that seems to hit some people and not others, why are you guys selected for this treatment?

​so how bad do you get with them on if this is with not using them?

 

i go back to my original theory and that is people tend to take chances they might not take otherwise with them off as they want to make the most of every game.  otherwise they feel they wasted it.  its nothing sinister its just human nature with some people i use them some times and sometimes i forget to activate them i have never seen a change in my MM or the way the game behaves.  so why am i and QQ getting the same effect as those who believe the boosters are at fault?

 

i saw one post where the poster blamed the boosters then proceeded to say he was playing a line he hated, and rushed through multiple games.  these are also factors that will effect your play over any booster effect you think may be going on

it certainly makes it far more memorable when you activate those 300%ers and have a terrible hour of games.

Tough call - i had an amazing game in my LT432 before popping the boosters referenced above for that 9-2 winning streak.  But as was pointed out, it could have been 11-0, but for those darned boosters....  :(

He's one of those players who uses "chance to win" and suicides if he doesn't like the odds, I've been in several games where he's done this. Reporting him doesn't help of course so he's allowed to keep doing this

so he in fact creates his own losing streaks, gotcha

You are free to use the Big Words "self-fulfilling prophecy."  Many of us here will understand them.  :)

 

I do wonder sometimes if groups are better off without those sorts - but it does seem that they can at least soak up SOME shots and keep them from hitting people who ARE playing.

 

I'll never understand it, though - it seems to me like suicide is telling the other guys they win - and they are going to have to EARN that.  Admittedly it's not going to cost them much when dealing with me, but that's a different issue.:(
