Lopsided Battles

Has anyone noticed or felt that a lot of battles lately were lopsided one way or the other.  Maybe its just me, but it feels lately that I'm either on a team that is being curb stomped or on a team that's curb stomping the other team.  Not much even fighting. I have no statistics to back this up or anything, just curious if something is out of whack or maybe I'm just going through an odd luck period. Thanks.

You really need to keep a spreadsheet on stuff like this. Every lopsided score registers, while the rest fade in memory. You might very well be right, but the suggestion plants a seed that you focus on.

Confirmation bias, lopsided results come and go and like with the weekend team complaints people tend to discount or forget about the ones that are not what they are complaining about.

It comes in goes - sometimes in the same day - not much different than when I started over a year ago.

When one team seems to just melt away and the other team wins overwhelmingly, it may not be that the one was all that much better than the other but that the losing team suffered what is known as a systemic collapse. In any fight there are certain key players and positions that when lost will almost always lead to a defeat. A well-organized team of even moderate-level players should be able to overwhelm most random teams because a random team relies on each individual to position themselves where they can best help the team, and this rarely happens.

This and I have had the reverse happen, you are certain the match is all but over and you look at the score and it is 880 - 220.

Oh no doubt. Worst feeling in the world. Damage inflicted is piling up, fire after fire is breaking on red ships.....aaaand doesn't matter, we're about to lose.
