Sorry, this is yet another rage thread. But im almost to the point of throwing my computer out my window.

I've been playing for about an hour or so tonight. 17 games. 3 wins.

10 out of the 13 have been in my stock T29. Not a single win in it yet. No stars. Nothing.

This is becoming a weekly thing. 1 out of the 4 nights during the week, that I play, I just can't win. Pick any tank, and you and your team will lose. Im getting sick of it. Every single tank, besides 1 arty and you (the bottom tank, in a tier 10 game) go to the valley in steppes? Really?

Im averaging 1/2 kill a battle. Top was 3 and low was 0. I think im doing what im supposed to do. Teammates, on the other hand, are not.

I need a cookie and a hug.

*Rage button to off*

Edit-Took me 14 games to get 1 win in my T29. <_<

Edit 2-New day, new tanking. Didn't really need the +'s mates, but thank you.

The cookies also helped. OMNOMNOMNOM. ;)

Well there is your main problem, "Stock T29". The tank realy sucks until you get up to speed on your upgrades. As for the wins, unless it is from MM's drunken rampage on poor innocent players the last few days, its just the hand you were dealt. But just stand tall, put your head out, grind thorugh it, and it will get better.  :)

Tell us more about it...

From 10 battles as top tank with IS-3 today I had 5 victories and 5 defeats. After summarizing them I discovered that I earned more credits on defeats...

Ive had so many days like this.  The best solution to solve team dilemmas is to get yourself a platoon and work with them preferably with 3 so you know there are 2 others that will work together.

The games I joined were also unusually high tier compared to the norm (e.g. there were a couple that were almost solid T9 games, with 1 or 2 non arties that were below T8).  Made for some interesting matches.

Just buy a premium tank like half the remaining server population did obviously and you're done with the whole "stock tank" issue, OP. then throw some more money at WG to convert XP so you can skip the stock phase on a given tank. Or just don't cave in to the "Pay2Win" model and check out a different game. Lots of possibilities to be pursued. :Smile_harp:

Well, my highest tank is only Tier 5, but I still have that exact problem today.  Yesterday I was about 50/50 and... it was fun!  It felt like it really did matter what I did or didn't do and I really could survive some amazing odds.

Today, even with matches that should be balanced in my favor I die and end up losing the round.  

  • If there are 2 routes to take, the entire team seems to go the way I'm not, leaving me the lone tank going up against half the enemy team.
  • Our scouts like to commit suicide at the very start and leave me blind to most of the incoming tanks for the entire round.
  • As a scout, my own artillery seems oblivious to the enemy artillery that I scouted and camped out for a good 30 seconds before getting tracked and dying.
  • As a scout, my driver and engine are the two things that get hit by the very first goddamned shot in most of the rounds today!
  • In my Heavy, a maneuver I've pulled off 99 times before backfires on me, costing me my life and the round.  A soda-can sized rock knocks my entire tank so far of balance in that last half inch of roll after I stop the throttle, that my shot gets launched into orbit at point blank range to the enemy.

I really just can't win.  It's like every streak of bad luck or odd-ball chance of something happening is being cashed in today.

It can be random. Last few days have been awful, yesterday I had a 2-10 w/l ratio. Today I had a 10 game win streak and in solo mode I have gone 6-1 w/l so far.

Keep at it, man.  We all have those kinds of nights.  If it's too much, I heard there's a new Elder Scrolls game out that may be able to help take your mind off of it...  :Smile_honoring:

There are nights like that where you always get the noob teams.  I would call it quit early and get some sleep.

Having the same experience as many others - a dozen games in the T-50 and KV-13, all either convincing losses or rollover ones. I'm getting my kills, and these are not bad tanks.

I turned off WoT and may try again later; this has been absurd.

Same here. I had a game in my Hotchkiss. 9 kills,then got ganked by the remainder. Nobody came to help,nobody bothered to moe from their camping spots. Then they got steam rolled.

Or my Hetzer,went to the Mine in Mines,took on a KV derp,Hetzer,and PZ 3/4. Either AFK or camping out on the cap or holding the rocks with no arty. Died but took down the PZ and the other Hetzer.


Seriously,its scary how many times teams are getting totally roflstomped lately :o

Take a break for a bit. Although I must say when people come into a game and start spouting another fail team after one tank gets killed I really don't even try very hard. You want to piss and moan fine do it here in the forums but in the game spend less time railing against the team and more time trying to win. I don't care how fast a typist you are if you are chatting about anything other than what is happening in the battle you are a liability. Anymore when someone starts berating the team or anyone on the team I really don't care if we lose at that point.
