Extended losses

So has anyone ever got into a series of losses?  I have been playing this game for about 3 years and have always realized that you win some and lose some.  But about a week ago I was on teams 

that lost 11 games in a row.  I got pretty frustrated and quit playing.  Two days later I played and went through 8 losses in a row followed by 2 wins then 3 more losses.  I stopped playing again.

Then today I have quit after 12 straight losses.  Is this just a coincidence?  I'm no great player but usually finish in the top half in teamplay.  So how do they decide teams?  Is it just a roll of the dice to pick players?

I know its just a game but everyone hates to lose most of the time.

Everyone has and there are posts and posts about it and all kinds of conspiracy theories.  MM Matches tier and ships and that is about it - provided there are enough players int he correct ships.  I have been up tiered more today than the last week (playing Rechelieu) and getting a good amount of tier X games..

You aint the only one.  The teams I've been on since starting with the Minsk have been mainly lost matches.  Either the team goes potato or they just throw away the entire match completely.  It happens.  It hurts the win rate but you get over it and move on.  Next.

Lost 7 of 9 on Friday, went 5 for 9 on Saturday, and went 8 of 9 today. Go figure....crap happens in this game. Take a day or two off, especially now that the good weather is here....

Yep, these streaks happen. I’m in a losing streak at the moment, where my teams are refusing to be carried to victory despite me driving my favourite ships with 60%+ WRs. 

You’re doing the right thing by walking away. Try doing it sooner though, say after 5 battles. Still, even if you are going to lose, take the opportunity to practice something, like ambush tactics, or shooting BBs through the bow. Try and be the top of your teams leaderboard. Think critically about what you did wrong before you died, which could have been a few seconds or a few minutes before. All of that is useful salvage from the loss.

Good luck!

Best thing to do is take a break or you can become your own worst enemy. You start to get upset/angry and then you start making your own mistakes so take a break and chill. I play another game till i feel i can play WoWs without a meltdown.

Yeah I take breaks from this game when it's really getting to my nerves. I've gotta say it can be one of the more frustrating games I've played up to this point. I'm currently on a spree, but when I feel the need to take a break, I go back to console games / RPGs which are my main, or do something else altogether.

If you start losing in one ship class, try another. If you are able to find people to div up with, then do it; it will definitely help you win some more battles knowing that at least 2 other people have your back.

What tier/s were you generally playing when you experienced this trend?

I just went through an abysmal weekend. Win rate in the low 20% range. Couldn't complete the Indy task to get a win and 70k damage. Hope this turns around soon.
