Sunday evening session

 

Posted Image

 

It's as if WoT has suddenly had a change of heart and smiled down upon the green team. Teams were mostly balanced in green's favor but when not..., we had a bunch of players working together to pull a win out or the bag. Also.... totally acceptable RNG which should be the rule rather than the exception.

 

What makes this even more remarkable is that these are all my 'not fully researched' tanks. Most of the tier 9's  were acquired over the weekend to take advantage of the discount and most have stock everything!....

 

However, I am a little suspicious after dropping a fist full of dollars in WG's pocked to pay for the upgrades - can't help wondering if this is their way of saying thank-you!.... :)

I was thinking the same thing, but surely WG would not be so blatant in demonstrating how well they can manipulate the game!.... :)

which advocates choosing the simplest/most obvious . I don't believe that ....

i.   an 11 battle winning streak

ii. for a sub par player

iii. who has just paid a large sum of money

iv. running stock tanks

v. on a 4x XP weekend

vi. having a string of good teams

vii. with players who work together and support each other....

 

is the simplest or most obvious reason for my good fortune!.... :)

I went 19-6 early last week but the last 3 days 4-8 for a 7 day total of 23-14 which looks good right now. It wvens out in the long run I guess.

So you do not believe in Occam's Razor?

 

Perhaps it is your Apophenia that is showing up.

That's not what I said - try reading it again slowly. You can use your finger to point to each word as you read it!.... :)

So you believe that all of these unrealistic events are all connected and it is "rigged", instead of a good run of games?

 

Remind me to buy stock in Alcan.

So, despite your lack of comprehension, you are now an expert on what I believe and do not believe?....

 

You're a hoot!.... :)

Have a look at http://wotnumbers.com

 

It's an app which keeps track of all your battles and stores the results in a database on your PC...

I can only go on what you say. You are looking for explanations on a win streak and I suggested the simplest explanation.

 

For sone reason you are determined to look for a more complicated answer without any evidence.

It's as if WoT has suddenly had a change of heart and smiled down upon the green team. Teams were mostly balanced in green's favor but when not..., we had a bunch of players working together to pull a win out or the bag. Also.... totally acceptable RNG which should be the rule rather than the exception.

 

What makes this even more remarkable is that these are all my 'not fully researched' tanks. Most of the tier 9's  were acquired over the weekend to take advantage of the discount and most have stock everything!....

 

However, I am a little suspicious after dropping a fist full of dollars in WG's pocked to pay for the upgrades - can't help wondering if this is their way of saying thank-you!.... :)

You don't think it's possible for you to get a lucky streak?

 

You were being carried in most of those games. When you play enough battles, eventually, you'll get a run of teams that are capable of carrying you. That's evidence of randomness at work, not some malicious agency that you want to see.

I did read again. I comprehend that you are stuck in a confirmation bias loop, but the only person that can help you is you. Based on your posting, then there is little hope for you.

 

Without sufficient valid and non-anecdotal evidence it just looks like a lucky streak.
