I mean, I just don't know what to do, here...

I mean, I blame the MM when I lose, right? cuz no way it's my fault when the MM puts all those skanks/scrubs/noobs/tomatoes/potatoes/<insert other preferred derogatory term for teammates here> on my team, amiright?

And I mean, these were good wins - 50k damage, 1700+ base XP, lots of caps, lived to the end, a kill here and there...but that would mean I played well, and then it wouldn't be the MM's fault, so then I couldn't blame MM when I lose, cuz that would be just pure hypocrisy, so THAT can't be it...

The MM must be paying me back for all my losses lately! Yeah! That must be it!

Except...well gosh, haven't HAD a lot of losses lately...I don't division, so no one else is pulling me down or helping me win...hmm...

Maybe...just maybe...there are games I'm going to win no matter what I do, and games I'm going to lose no matter what I do, and my personal WR is based on what I do in the games I can make a difference in, and maybe those games get all mixed together, and I win some, lose some, have win streaks and have losing streaks (my longest losing streak in the last year is 4, btw) just like you'd expect to see in a Poisson distribution! Maybe we just get the WR we earn (when playing solo, anyway)!

Some of you guys and your tinfoil  hat theories based on psuedo-maths/anecdotal evidence/confirmation bias "facts" about MM rigging are just killin' me...

You’ve jinxed yourself. Enjoy the upcoming losing streak ;-)

 

Edit: No one treats MM with such disdain and has a good time (for long). Tempting fate is a dangerous thing; you know how superstitious sailors are!

Oh, I am sure you're right. I am going to burn in WR hell for this heresy! :Smile_teethhappy:

Edit for your edit: Oh hey, listen. It's worse than that. I was a Sailor AND a helicopter pilot. We didn't appease the gods before take off, we went in the drink!  :etc_swear:

Search the forum...there’s prolly a “MM Hates Me” or “Weekend Potatos My Teams Suck” thread that explains your wins

Blame MM.

Its only heresy if you think MM is out to get YOU. It is still logical if it put you in unbalanced teams via ships.

Eh, pretty even. One game, my team had more DDs, they had more radar, another it was the opposite. One game, their DD players had emblems! We didn't! They had more radars! We won, anyway. No T7's on either team, which was interesting.

Blame the teams you were on for being better than the enemy 

WERE my teams better? Does the better team ALWAYS win? How do we measure "better"? Solo WR? WTR? Better WR in the ship played? I don't know.

Measure it any way you want. I just see which team makes more dumb moves than the other

Oh, and for all the "horrible players on weekends screw up my games!" conspirators?

4-0 Saturday, 5-0 Sunday.

75% WR last weekend.

If the teams are bad for one, they'd have to be bad for all, right? I'd have had bad teams at least once in 9 games, right?

This really is too small a sample size to state there're no problems with player skill on weekends. It's also too small to say there is. We'll see the threads anyway, with less evidence than this.
