Weekend Woes

This weekend was how should we say special.

I do not want to say bad but it was not good as to many teams just vaporized so quickly.

After looking back at the majority of the games i dare to blame most of it on Match Making.

Not the matching of the ships but the balancing of the talent among the two teams.

When you have 3 players from MLGB and 2 palyers from OPGS and another player from MIA all on the enemy team all with 60% or better WR and your team has none of the above well at the 12 minute mark it was check mate game over.

This was the case match after match one team loaded the other team not and the games never made it to the halfway mark.

I literally fired 3 salvos in my Kurfurst one match before the team went negative and the match was over.

I wish they could design MM to balance teams better player wise but i guess it is their way of making sure you get challenged on some weekends for all the killing you did during the week lol.  (KARMA)

But I loved this weekend besides carrying a few games. Best carry besides this one was in my Conq against a three Khab division.

it gets worse with campaign mission on weekend because so many are worried more about their mission objective compared to winning.  add in unicum divisions and you have even worse romp.      I've seen lot of CVs as well , which compounds the situation.    at least they are fixing smoke so BBs can't hide anymore.

I seen the server top out at 14,100 online at 8:30 p.m sunday.  I agree lots of CV action and some impressive displays from some Graf  players.

I witnessed a N.C get deleted from almost full health in 1 strike and a Bismarck almost get deleted in 1 strike if he had not started repairing just before the bombers hit.

It's like flipping a coin. Some people just have better luck than others. This was a reverse weekend for me. I should probably have gone to a Casino. I had Such good luck on Friday and Saturday that I didn't even play Sunday for fear of ruining a good weekend winning team streak.

I had a very good weekend. MM seems to be working better than ever. I had some of my best games, even in losing efforts. Very close, very fun.

Premium time, +200% XP bonuses, decent to good team teams, had a good supply of special camo and Signal Flags saved up so I made out quite well. Gained the last few thousand XP needed for Amagi, got Amagi mostly upgraded and the Captain quickly trained, plus put some good XP totals on some other ships and huge pile of free XP. Yes very good weekend lol.

Had many games that looked like sure losses only for the enemy team to throw their ships away. Of course also had a few games where my own team got curb stomped into the ground too.....

pretty much a pattern of my team losing quickly, followed by the enemy the next match.  some matches were over before you could even do anything.  very very few went until the end of the match.  quite a few matches felt like no matter how well i played, the match was over 5 minutes prior.

I was on the team that threw their ships away, like every time. No carry was even close to hard enough.

It happens, I had a pretty decent weekend though. 70+% WR, made 800k commander xp and 300k free xp. :Smile_Default:

I had above average weekend, thanks to the Camo and signal flags, I got all the needed XP one of the Cruisers I wanted, and working my up towards the XP needed for my first Tier 7 battleship, just got to save up the credits for both now.

Did not get some of the special collection done, thanks to work (God I hate call-offs), but had fun and that is the main thing.

To be honest, today's games are more weekend'y than the weekend-games themselves. The things I've seen today...

Yeah there were alot of matches launching with one side having a division and the other side not. Despite that Saturday was a good day for me.

If you don't like the MM, you could pick up ijn CVs, and support your team. It's like going 1 on 1 with the MM itself.

I honestly find the weekends to be just like any other day on the seas =). I just go in with the mindset of play my best and carry.

Confirmation bias? Expectation too high? Your WR over the weekend was 60%, I doubt most people would consider that as bad. You generally have to fight like hell for most games to maintain a WR that high, so it's not really a weekend thing.

Mine was all over the place.  I managed to spam enough DD matches to finish the DD weekend missions, finished the collection, etc.  However,

 Sunday I couldn't BUY a decent game...  Nothing but crappy low damage matches- primarily due to the massive numbers of people using pve as easy mode to do missions.  This was present all weekend, but Sunday was the worst as people tried to beat the clock...   I ended up shutting the game off in disgust.

  I did manage one really good romp in Izzy:  The red BB's kept coming right for me- while shooting at my pal in a BB.  One after the other after the other,lol.  I did what any self respecting RU DD captain would do: Hammered them relentlessly with HE- while moving into torp range.  I ended up wiping out half the enemy team this way, before the CV got wise and cut my party short,lol.
