No wonder so many think this game is rigged.  Got 11k battles, been playing a week on a "hot streak" to improve my win rate a meager .07%, wipe out half of that in a day.

 

Still waiting for the day where I have a 75% win rate with more than 4 games, will never freakin' happen.  I am 1 for 7 to start the day at least twice a week, been 6 for 7 maybe once in a year.

 

Trying to grind on track tanks, get 4 or 5 losses on same tank in a day.  Anyone ever get 4 wins for 4 battles on the same tank in a day?  

 

Going to bed.  This game so frustrating.

If you track your stats under in under 100 game increments then all you are doing is setting yourself up for misery. I've had 100 game runs where I was barely able to keep it over 50% then the next hundred would boost me up 10%. This is why recent stats are based off 1000 games.

I've logged on for one battle over the last 4 days and lost every one of them. I consistently get teams that disintegrate in the first 30-60 seconds of a battle. And when I look up the team make up the other team has most of their players at 5000+ WR or higher and we maybe have one 6000 WR player. I struggle to log on everyday just for one battle to get my 100 points towards tank rewards because I know how much of a **** show it is.

 

Another thing I've noticed that is a bit off topic is game chat has pretty much been existent since they put in that system that monitors chat for chat bans. Literally no one says anything. As far as I'm concerned it's just another nail in the coffin for this game.

As mentioned above stop looking at your WR from day to day or even week to week as not only will it drive you nuts it's absolutely meaningless from a statistical POV, just don't

 

I had a quick look at your stats and you're a solid 48-49% player over the past 1k-2k battles but at the same time your WN8 is going up slightly and your avg tier is going up so despite moving to higher tiers you are more less holding your own

To me that suggest that you've improved slightly but not by a too significant amount if that matters to you. With your battle count you've obviously gotten the hang of the basics and probably know the maps fairly well at this point and it might be a good time to take a step and see what you can improve that will change things to the better for you. I'm not saying you are bad or anything like that, far from it, but we all have things that can be improved and bad habits we need to get rid of and especially with so many low skill players filling up the teams these days this might be the perfect opportunity to have a good look in the mirror and see what you can do to start carrying some of these battles or if you're not one of the better players on your team then how you can best carry more of the load

 

Sometimes there's simply nothing you can and you'll get days like those you describe, but for those 48-49% days all you have to do is be the player who tips the scales in your team's favour for a couple of battles and all of a sudden you're above 50% more consistently

 

Small samples are meaningless, stop looking at them

This is what I have been saying for some time. You need to look at the last 1000 games at least to get an accurate idea of how you are doing. Anything less will likely show streaks which may or may not be reflective of your performance. For example, within 100 games, it is quite likely that you had a run of games that boost your WR to more than what you can sustain because the MM blessed you with great teams. And the reverse is also true, where you can be doing poorly trying to figure out what you are doing wrong while in reality you are just at a losing streak.

One thing I have noticed lately - Games that start off looking like a blowout get turned around to either a respectable match or a win.  Had a couple of 5-0 matches turn into wins.  Mostly by a couple of good TDs breaking up the flank attack or arty picking the hot spots to target.

 

Bottom line - Never give up.  Give it your best shot no matter the pending outcome.  Die on your feet with an empty magazine.

Yeah games have been very weird lately, when a flank is won people insist on pushing into their base not realising that one of the reasons they won that flank so easily was their TDs were camping too far back to be useful at first but pushing to their base just allows them to sit and farm dmg

 

"When you've won a flank, stop and have a good look at the minimap before you do anything and then head back to base and help win the other flank almost no matter what the minimap shows" :)

I just had a bad loss and got curious about my team (no xvm). 11 of 15 players were under 43% WR. How is this possible?

It means that 11 of the 15 have lost 57% or more of their games? 

 

 

Not including draws, of course, but that's a different thread.

I remember one day I played 20 battles and won those 20 battles. I played all of those 20 battles in a platoon -we were not 3 unicums, but regular players- playing tier 6 (type 58 - cromwell b - t34-85). 20/20, not going to happen again anytime soon but at least it got stuck in my mind forever lol

Tanksgg says you were 27-37 for the last 24hrs. If at one point you were 7-21 that means you also had a winning streak of 20-10. Why not point out how good your teams were and how MM and RNG loves you for those 30 games.

Interesting theory, have you run this by the local number gurus like NeatoMan to make sure it's accurate ?

Don't need to - if any wrong numbers appear anywhere in the forum, their Statty Senses start to tingle and they'll show up like magic.  :teethhappy:

Sounds like a fairly standard plan, based on what I've seen here.
