My personal rating dropped from 50.2% to 48.74 in two weeks time. Everyday I played +- 40 battles a day and win only 10 battles. Its not even worth it to play there anymore and feels like wargaming done nothing about it if you send them a ticket its like theres a computer replied to you same old crap{server choose games randomly} heard that lots of times. I think its time to delete this game and play something else cant go on like this.

Holy crap.  

 

OK... I'm uninstalling too.  I'm convinced.  Your well-written, example-laden text is bulletproof.

 

Thank you.  You're a beacon of light to the tinfoil-wearing amongst us.

 

Bravo Sir.

What do you expect this game to win battles for you?

Well then, see ya later.

 

To be serious, the battles can be pretty atrocious. Platooning appears to be the way to go now, and that's what gets me and my brother the most wins.

What do you want to change exactly? If you're losing 30 battles and only winning 10 during a session, it means it's you causing the losses more than anything. There is only one constant on your teams and that is you. 

 

Every player, even the best in the game can get on losing streaks from time to time. If it keeps happening over and over to you though over multiple sessions in short succession of each other, it is probably due to you playing badly. Either not being used to a tank, a class or just generally not putting yourself in the right positions so you are consistently dying doing little to nothing to help your team.

If you're playing 40 battles a day and losing 30 of them, chances are your psychology is part of your downfall.

 

If I go on a bad losing streak, I get tilted and make mistakes while trying to actively do better. It's sort of a vicious cycle, sometimes you need to just take a break. I've been hovering between 49.5% and 49.9% winrate for well over a year now so I can definitely relate to some of that frustration.

Hey guys, The basketball hoop at my local park is also broken. I shoot about 100 shots a day, but if I'm lucky only 15 to 20 go in. Obviously that park is rigged. No one  go there unless you wanna get screwed over by the park and that faulty hoop.

Part of getting good stats (if that is your thing) is when you play pubs and you start to play like crap and get titled.... just stop. If you still want to play tanks, go drive around in a TTR or play some skirms, and come back to pubs when you cool down.

If I lose 5 in a row, I log out and take a break.  Usually after 2 or 3 losses I'll play a tank I know I can do well in and really help my team get a win.  Lately that has helped a lot, and my win rate has gone up a lot in the last few weeks.

Happens to me sometimes, play 10 battles and won 1, just log out and play other game. Install xvm, so you can see if is you the problem or you are having a very bad "luck with the mm."

I get your frustration but I think you are exaggerating a lot. According to wotlabs (https://wotlabs.net/na/player/Sokkies_1) your stats for 

 

24 hours - 40% wins

7 days - 43.4% wins

30 days - 46.55% win

 

You are getting progressively fewer wins but nowhere near at the rate that you are claiming. It may feel that way, but it is not objectively true.

 

Data is a beautiful thing.

It's not unusual for me to lose up to 10 games in a row and then grind back up to my prev win rate over a week or two worth of playing. Rare that I lose for weeks on end, but not unheard of.

 

Last week I broke down and decided to take the advice of many on this forum. I played only Russian tanks from Tier 4 to 8. Guess what? An absolutely unheard of 70% win rate over 30 games. That has only happened on a slightly smaller scale once before. To make it even more unlikely, half the tanks I used were those I was researching through and not even using the best gun/motor/turret/etc.

 

I then go and get a big head and figure it must be me playing well......well, I lost the next 9 games straight playing US, Swedish, and German tanks that I fully researched already. By the end of the day I was almost 60 games and I think +4 maps on the winning side of 50%.

 

I learned me a good lesson. ALL HAIL THE GLORIOUS STALIN!!!  Harumfff, harumfff, harumff!

 For each of those 30 miserable games you have, there are  about 450 players on the red team, who have good games.

 

They seem to be working on the MM. I have noticed a large portion of battle's rosters being suspiciously matching precisely.

For each T29, there is a red T29. 2 T67's, frequently matching T67's.

Unless they full on have a players stats decide who they play (would kill the game), random, means random. Sometimes you just get a team out for fun, and not stats.

 

Their brother game, just matches ships exactly.

It's not random when you can predict the outcome during countdown.
