Another wild losing streak. No wins 9 straight losses. In 3 of the losses, I made some mistakes, played poorly. In 6 of them I was in the top 3 on my team and played well. The teams however in all cases were atrociously bad, making inexplicably bad decisions, game after game after game. I've never had, at least not in recent memory a 9 game win streak, or even a 7 game win streak....but massive losing streaks..they happen all too often.  I guess being 15 games over 500 was enough of a marker to get the patent swinging against me tonight. now I'm back down closer to 50% so maybe I can actually be on a good team for a change.

You must answer me these question three, before the other side ye see....

Do you have premium?

Did you join a clan?

Did you like your twitch?

If the answer to all three is no, there is your answer.

Don't go blaming your team, think of what you can do better as a player.  You definitely can improve on something.

I got 6 out of six with my favourite ship right now (Lyon with gift captain) and called it a night. I was in the top 5 for most, a potato for one when I got too aggressive and was torp-slapped badly, but a kraken in my best--doenst matter--you lose mate.

Really I get the stepping back needed to see the larger pattern with wins and losses, but being put on a total schlub team, losing but being number 1, with no special awards (see LWM post recently on that topic), is demoralizing. If I find it a tough pill to swallow (why do I keep playing this?) I can barely imagine what it must be like for a noob player.

Propaganda. If you are put on a schlub team the best you can do is cause as much damage before they hunt you down and sink you after they wipe out your lamer team mates. ok... any questions?

Some times you could have done better...some times it really is your team. The first step to improving is knowing what the problem is. When half the team dies in under 8 minutes it's probably not you.

Kalishikat... Its really hard to raise your win rate as you approach 50%. I am a similar player to you and ran into the same problem. The MM is not the problem.

If it makes you feel better I had an 80% win rate and a 2200WTR over my last 15 battles. Skill matters when it comes to winning.

After a certain point of people QQing about losing streaks I'm gonna want to start watching replays... if nothing but for entertainment value but also to point things out.

You know, every time you lost someone else got a win. Don't have to always look at it as half empty

It happens to us all my friend.  Of course there are times where there is nothing you can do but more often than not there was more you could have done.  I am not a great player by any definition but I am slowly learning that force projection and taking actions that force an enemy to do things they would rather not do is key.  That and flipping that cap to green!

It is not easy at first but glueing your eyes on the minimap and putting yourself in a place that makes the enemy scared of you, or even the prospect of you will tip the balance.  How many times have you cursed the BB that is sitting in that perfect spot or the DD that ninja-vanishes, caps a base and seemingly fires torps from unexpected angles?  It's this strategic thinking and practice implementing that strategic thinking that facilities the winning streaks.

Review your own replays, ask for help from div mates or watch certain Youtubers play with a critical eye.  Practice playing the map and not the "damage game" and you will do well.

Or you can play the numbers game , load in a ship go forward cap shoot some people then die, exit game load into new ship, and rinse and repeat, teams will win without you there, and who knows you might have a 7 - 3 night, stuff all damage but hey does it matter.

 

But don't start a thread complaining about being reported for botting.

One ship I played had a 58% WR, one had a 54% WR, 6 straight losses despite good numbers. Odds are, based on WR I should have won 50% of my games, or at least 2 of 6, how about 1? 6 losses in a row goes against the odds. The other 3 losses last night were in the ship that hates me, Bretagne. All my other T5 BBs are over 50% WR, except 39% Bretagne, despite good damage numbers. It's like MM says ohhhh he's got Bretagne, time for a crappo team. A 1022 WTR for 9 straight losses. 1230 WTR for the 6 losses in my 2 good WR ships. But it's me right????

Maybe you should switch to DD's. I regularly have a 60-80% win rate in them. Simple reason is I can exert more influence on the outcome of a game in them. Just a thought.

If you've lost 9 in a row, you've played 5 games too many.  4 losses in any session and I quit to do something else.

Remember, sample size!

Also,  playing on a tilt is not a good idea.

If your longer term stats (30 day) has gone down, maybe analyse what you are doing differently? (i.e. playing different class, higher tier etc)

If you get frustrated, I suggest some T4 games in a "comfort ship"

 

To look for trends, if you click on your stats where it says "30 day" etc. It will then show only your games over the last 30 (by ship)

 

I.e. I notice you're playing a CV with 0 from 8. That alone is dropping your win rate over the last 3 days.

https://na.warships.today/player/1021203079/KalishniKat

Also, your performance in Bretagne, Normandie,  Zuiho (another CV) and Fubuki has been very poor over the last 30. Using the last 30 days is better as it is a more reliable sample size of 300+ games.

My 10c: Don't play on a tilt. Avoid CVs and French BBs. Play your Wyoming or Kaiser a bit and chill. Enjoy some lower tier DDs.

I am sure i know what you meant, but what you said was...

You should rejoice in loosing, because someone else won.
