So in summary - he's a poor player that isn't self-aware enough to realize he's his own problem and in order to "prove a point" he pulls an OMK-style protest, further hurting his team.

 

What truly astounds me about so many of these players that get on here and rant about MM is the lack of self-accountability and awareness from them. I get the frustration that comes with a string of bad teams, but it's not hard to look at the individual metrics (damage/tier, KDR, DR, etc) and see that they're not contributing. Furthermore, instead of addressing those shortcomings, they go the tinfoil route of blaming everyone but themselves. 

 

What's even more interesting is how many of these individuals are adults, middle-aged and up, and these are many of the same people that talk about all the shortcomings of Millenials. They'll blame MM, RNG, etc and in the same breath talk about how entitled the younger generation is. The dichotomy is pretty crazy to say the least. 

Younger? Lol, nooooooo. But hes actually very aware of trash mm and rng. Average damage is anything but average.  400 is more like 343. While playing my chieftian I was trading shots with an E50. He managed to roll over 400 every shot. While I managed to roll 301, 303, 327. I gave up. Bet you'll never guess what clan said player was in. Wargaming is 2hat it is. And I think rigged is an over simplification . I will not waste time and or money again. And I thought console was bad. Furthermore, when it walks like a duck and talks like a duck.... it tends to be a duck.

Don’t sweat it.  
 

Today I was 6-4, 3040 avg dmg, with tier avg at 9.75 (1 in 8, 1 in 9 and 8 in X). 

  I got carried the tier 8 game, carried the 9 game, and only managed 50% in my X games despite fairly decent 3,200+ avg dmg. 

  The trick to looking at MM is not concern yourself with short term issues - play your best and over time you get rewarded with results that bear out your Contributions.

Tier 6 teams are terrible today. Trying to grind my M4A3E2 and 3 battles in a row were lost because of rtarded people. :deer:

WEnt to tier 9 in my T92E1 and artied people and won a bunch, that made me happy. MM at higher tiers were fine today. Whats this I hear about MM being redone based on skill level? April fools or actual statements?

Games are 100% without a doubt by 99% of the player base - ABSOLUTELY RIGGED. 

When you go into a game and your shots start ghosting or going 90 degrees sideways on full dispersion... bouncing on rear armour from point blank... and your team loses 0-7... 

RNG dropping to less than 1%... yah... that's just random... sure. sure wargaming, sure. We all believe you.

I've bounced shots off rear armor :3 Especially T29/T34s in my 13 75... which on closer inspection revealed that the shots were the result of autoaimed shells hitting the engine deck and bouncing

Utilizing an ad hominem attack versus actually providing the evidence. Ineffective, but solid attempt at a redirect my friend. Care to try again?

 

You can say whatever you want but until you provide the evidence, we'd have to go off faith to believe you. And guess what? You ain't no prophet. 

 

**EDIT TO ADD** - the premise of what you're suggesting is absolutely plausible and would be easy in implementation. That said, it would go against everything that WG has said to date and would completely undermine how players view the game. Kinda like going to Vegas and finding out that the games are actually rigged. Given this, it's important to see the actual empirical data that has gone in to proving your theory. Just show us the data man.

It’s not unreasonable to get frustrated with the game at times. Whether it be a string of bad teams, a game or two with bad RNG, etc there are times when the game will drive you crazy. However, that does not mean that there is anything going on behind the scenes to cause this and by focusing on how the game is “rigged” rather than focusing on improving, a player will only get more frustrated as they won’t see any benefit. 

 

Surfex has an interesting and plausible premise, but as of right now, it’s purely a hypothesis with nothing to prove it. If it was true, we would want to know it, but to take it at face value without any sort of data to show for it is no different than any other conspiracy theory.

He needs to buy a mirror.  
 

I had a 3.9k loss in my Pantera today. Two of our tier 9 where afk. 
  Before that I got ammoracked at the start zero Damage - but team won. 
 

Over time we all see the same sort of players.  WG doesn’t need to fiddle with anything as the playerbase is so extremely diverse.  
Studies have shown the random MM method is more addicting as it in an unknown.  If WG was meddlesome it would remove any faith in the game or desire to buy in game goods.  
 

If you are losing a lot, evaluate your play.
