I am having a string of losses while I am waiting for the service dept to call (car) and they (the losses) have been tough. But this is what I try and remember...

 

1. It will pass. Winning is never a straight line up and a string of losses happens. I have done MUCH worse than 3 wins/8 losses out of 11 matches.

2. Take a break. When it seems like no matter what tank you drive, what tier you play or even if you toon up with a buddy you and you just cannot win then TAKE A BREAK. Which is what I am doing now.

3. When I'm ready to get back into the fight I play 10 battles in one of my favorite tanks. And I track it on a piece of paper with tick marks/tracking wins/losses. If after 10 battles my game is still in the dumpster then I shut it down for the day. If the curse is broken then I go back to SOP.

4. Visit the forum! Sometimes it is a nice mental break.

 

Good luck tankers. Thanks for letting me vent.

3/11 is nothing.  Let me know when you've gone 3/20.  Since 3.5, I've had more runs like that than I thought would be statistically possible.

Yeah I went 4/18 last night. Most guys would say take a break, but I dont know, I guess I’m a masochist (or is a sadist?).

I will raise you 0:6 platooned with a better player than me and 2:10 ... 

 

And, it has happened more than once ...

 

Just try to put the ipad down and walk away

 

you know, instead of throwing it on the floor or against the wall or smacking it on the table ... tossing it out the window ... and then being out of $400-1000 to replace it

Read the writing on the wall guys.  WG doesn’t want you ( and I), anymore.   Your RNG is trashed,  no matter what anyone says, your MM is blinkered. Face4star was correct.  You get past a certain threshold now, ( and I mean now- not a year ago or so,), and WG wants you out.  5.5 totally ruined the game.  And there is no going back now, unlike what they were able to do with 3.8, which drove a ton of players away from this game, much like 5.5 did recently.   I’m seeing bots now at tier 6/7/8.  Players are experiencing 3v3, 5v5, or in my case, several games of +2-2,  and no, they weren’t failtoons either.    WOTB is circling the drain........

You're too good to have a losing streak like that.

 

I don't believe it!

You’ve likely had bad luck like this before but at that time Bubba at the shop wasn’t holding your vehicle for ransom. “You blew out your muffler bearings, worst I done ever seent!

I assume that means 14 games total, 3 wins and 11 losses? I had 17 games with only 3 wins today before I gave up.

I just keep playing thinking it's gotta turn around soon.

Played more than 20 games In my amx30 and got a winrate of 30%.

yup.

 

and I finally aced the thing with 5.5K dmg...

of course when game is all easy win,  last 4 shots failed, I catch fire, lose all hp, got nearly rammed, and won by just a hair.

 

some loss series are worth living through, but some need to be seen to be believed in.

My Blitzstars WN* dropped 200 points in 5-days. My play style has not changed, my skills have not changed (maybe been more aware?). The only thing that has changed is the "randomness" of who my team mates are. Maybe... it is just spring break. 

 

I feel ya.

I ran into UAV in his WT last night. He was the last man standing and carried the win against an enemy TD while most of his dead teammates screamed at him for doing it wrong. I don't have anything meaningful to add to this discussion beyond that. Just wanted to say that it was nice to have a game where green pulled it off for a change.

I don't wait to go 3/20. Who would?? Sounds like you like losing at 3/20.

Thanks man! Don't forget that 2500 assistance damage you racked up for the team. We couldn't have done it without you as well. I think your total damage (actual + assisted) was over 4K. Thanks for your help. It was a team win.

Lost 27 in 31 recently. I had four matches with three zeros on my teams in a row and got a zero bonus of four zeros in the last of that string.

 

I was saddened and more than a little pissed off.
