yeah, yesterday i wish i had just not played, and not gotten those 3 levels on my battle pass... hopped on at 8:45, out of about 18 battles i won 5. f night teams.


I experienced my first set of PM players yesterday as well.  Sort of a mixed bag but I'd still prefer my day play.  PM play seems to be sort of volatile and incredibly uncertain.

 

Though the Tiger I bouncing almost his entire ammo capacity off my Pravda IS battle last night was hilarious.  I kept the enemy team's heavies occupied the whole match while my team cleaned up.

Doesn't help that it’s made me play only a few games here and there. And now when I do play, I still have the thinking part, but my reactions are slower than normal. My aiming isn’t as coordinated and I can’t maneuver and snapshot like before.

 

Ik I just lost a bit of touch, and it’s not hard to get back. But when you can’t always deal with the percentage of the team you normally do, or take care of the “known” opposing best players, it certainly makes for some extra rough matches.

Then players like me would only play against players like you.  Sorry bud, but I don't like looking bad all the time.

That’s effectively MM balancing - the problem is then morons get carried more often.  
   I can live with the zombies, it’s a mobile game, without the plethora of oxygen thieves, the ace chase would be tough and stats would drop.  
 

 

I’m years passed carrying about my WR in any sort of serious concern.  I just play my best and try to win, If I don’t win, I evaluate my play to see where I could have done better.  
 

Yesterday I had a red in a 183, (from my friends list) put up a near 7 k dmg 5 kill game, and lost to my team.  
   I felt bad for him, as his ‘team’ didn’t break 1k dmg together - and spent most of the game raging at him.   He HESH’d my Patton while I was busy embarrassing two of his heavies - but I managed to still get them, and I knew he had simply gotten the hard shaft for the team - I didn’t even need to track either of them, they just tried to swing their turrets at me while I used them as shields against each other.   
 

In short - I see the zombies coming, but I’m still dropping them as fast as I can ;)

Agree with all of this. It’s not MM...it’s how utterly awful the player base has become. And before you respond Cru, it’s worse than ever before.

For the past 100 games I've maintained about an 80% WR. Between yesterday and today, I have gone from 51.50% WR to 51.90%. Find a good player from your clan and toon...always. That way, at least you know you have at least one other good player on your side. We've had some games with some ridiculous players such as a Type 62 that drove directly from Green spawn to the Red spawn and Yolo'd right into all 7 Reds. He was dead in seconds. Or the Tier VIII Glacier that was playing on my team that only had 14 games to his name and only fired his gun into the air. He never hit anything. We won both of those games I just discussed because my clan mate and I coordinated our attacks to mass our fires and take out as many targets as we could.

BOLO [Boh-Low] verb. US Military slang meaning Failure. Example: Dude, you bolo'd the sh!t out of that. Now sarge is going to smoke the sh!t out of you until you die.

Game on vineyards; team goes town; Chi-Ri AFK

got legendary spots in a T25/2 and I did what I could

2 tanks; Tiger 1 and a *(I forget what it was) did less damage than the AFK

Just another day in Blitz and something that really needs to be addressed

Days I wished I had never hit the battle button? Psssh!! Try months instead lol!!

 

Approximately a year and a half ago I was at 56.63% winrate and almost to my winrate goal of 57% when I went on the losing streak from hell! My winrate dropped down to 55.03% during a 2+ month horribad run.

I've since only managed to bring it up to 55.36% since then with minimal platooning despite almost all my other stats improving. 

At first I blamed teams.. then i thought great advice I had been given was instead bad advice.. but then i bit the bullet and ultimately realized that I was to blame  that it was just bad luck..

Seems like there's a plague of Afk's again.

No one moves forward at spawn anymore.   If I spawn behind a tank, he will twirl his turrett before he moves, I guarantee it.

With all the games everyone has played now, how can you not know where you are going.

Before 2 minutes pass is every game.  7 tanks will be dead.    5, 6, or 7 of them from the same team.

If your team gets a one or two or three tank advantage on one flank or the other, they will not push it.

If you move forward at any point to engage the enemy,  your team will watch and see how it works out for you.

The game is in a sorry state.

I literally quit because of those types of days. I see it this way, if the game isn't fun to play then ain't worth playing. I've played 8 games in the last 3 months, 7 of which were 2 months ago, the latest of which was near the end of December, just to see if I wanted to come back.

 

I guess I just saw one too many idiots try to hunt the last red as a oneshot when we were literally 10 seconds from winning on Supremacy points.

I have become aware that most of the heavy players lately are about as useful as a second sphincter on my rear. So I have started to overcome these fail heavy trends by playing my more aggressive light tanks.  I never was a light tank player much before, but I seem to be carrying my teams better now that I made this adjustment.

Light tanks allow you to spot for yourself as well as your team. If you are in a heavy tank, and the lights on your team don’t spot for you, it is much harder to be effective. I like light tanks a lot.


It’s not the size of the tank in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the tank. Unless yours is bigger than mine.

I guess I am most annoyed at my Patton performance - I've been running it over 70%, as well I'm off my average dmg by 400 in it of late, and my E5 is around 500 off.

What made me post this was a 49% player in a STB who average around 1,100 dmg in his ranting about rigged MM.   Then a 55% super muppet  who started deriding me as a bot - the he drove into the open in an AMX 120 50 and got deleted, 

    I get a chuckle out of those who think MM is rigged again them, at least if they are a 55% or under player.  

 

The player base is just really bad, due to the alignment of the planet's sometimes you get teams that refuse to win.   

 

"I get a chuckle out of those who think MM is rigged again them, at least if they are a 55% or under player"

 

this is hilarious,

Like the stupidity was a prerogative of player below 55%WR.

 

So a 60% (may be re roll playing T1-7) could think that MM is rigged without being considered stupid ?

 

Jesus man you really think you are like the God come to earth just because you are good at this game ? (neither one of the best).

So this "majesty" allow you to be always right and allow you to post something obvious that 99% of the forum are experiencing and know very well.

 

Pretty tired (in fact this is the last time I will even open a your post). We already have a Morphman.

 

I would like to know who you are in the real life, what do you do ? I hope you are young....

Many of us know players better than you showing a little more of modesty.

 

Once you say that causality doesn't matter if you got skills (I imagine you think skills like yours) then you post this stating that sometimes is difficult to win because the player base is very bad........hmmmm  

 

Average IQ players have already understand that is just important to do the best in their possibilities. 

We don't need a post to discover that is plenty of bad, stupid, "I don't care" players.

You ever make a cathartic rant post just to make one?   
    Did you read the rest of my posts in this? 

 

I wasn’t making a MM rant, just a ‘awe, one of those mornings/days/evenings’ post.   
    Small subsets of games can be skewed either way.   
 

I know I’m not god enough to influence battles more, and I pointed out I made many errors and died early too often.
