Surely there is some secret code in the MM to balance the game?

I had about 10 games over the weekend, won 9 of them, had some great fun. This morning (Monday here) I just played 10 losses straight. Even quitting out for a few hours after 7 losses and coming back is still resulting in comical losses.

 Last game we didn't even sink a single enemy ship and my Mahan was killed in a single hit from a Omaha in the first 3m... The rest of the team was annihilated in 5 minutes:( Complete yolo stupidity. Even when I went to my goto ship (New Mexico) is seemed broken, firing a full AP broadside into a Fuji at 7k range did 5k damage yet a Kongo hitting the very tip of my nose with 1 shell wiped 16k off my health pool.. Even firing at the enemy CV did minimal damage to him.

Makes me think the match maker detects an unusual balance of winning and sets about punishing you in the following days.

I should buy more stock in aluminum foil. The mm does not consider your win rate when setting up a match. Streaks will happen in this game.

They always seem to show up and complain during a losing streak. The winning streaks are all because of skill.

Losing 10+ games straight surely is the equivalent of tossing a coin 10 times in the air and having it land on tails everytime?

It's not that unlikely to get either 9/10 heads in a coin toss outcome (~1% for 9/10).

Given how many players there are, how few of us experience this on a regular basis, and how many "player-days" are played it's not at all unexpected to see people get that outcome.

With every toss you have a 50% chance for either result. While it sounds uncommon  to get 10 times the same result it’s still 50% with every toss.

The secret code is your credit card info being placed in wargamings premium shop.

Every time you lost someone else had a win.

10/10 can confirm, win rate went  up a lot after I started whaling up.

You can clearly see this from my stats; WR was hovering right around 52%  and then I started whaling up and you can see my WR has gone up steadily since then.

I'm sure those other players had a great time, particularly the person with a single game played. 

Thanks for your ongoing efforts in griefing new players making the game a fun game for new folks!

What exactly are you trying to track using matchmaking monitor in tier 1?

Research before posting rather than rushing uninformed but sure of yourself.

Here's the page for the poor guy with just "a single game played": https://worldofwarships.com/en/community/accounts/1028809811-/!/pvp/overview/

Here's the page for the other "new" guy: https://worldofwarships.com/en/community/accounts/1029076520-/!/pvp/overview/

...and as an aside, I let them fire at me until I was at about 40% health before answering their fire... just to keep it "a fun game" for them....

Ah, sorry, I didn't realize you only had about 10x as many games in tier one as those players do combined in the entire game in every single ship, I guess that makes it ok for you to farm them.

Almost makes me want to drop down to tier 1 for a while

I keep myself updated on the skilled players in the Tier. They will always be my primary targets. Also, it allows me to discern the sharks with, say, 15 games in a boat but with an AVG frag count of 1 or 2.something-or-other, indicating to me a high skill level and thus likely a rerolled character.
