Is it just me or are the games just being thrown away?

  I'm not sure if it's just me but lately it just seems as if the games are just literally thrown away.  I mean I haven't been playing that great lately either but I still try.  Just another lost match in the end.  Seems like players are just throwing away the game to the other team.  It's aggravating, and it sure doesn't help with working to improve win rates either.  Like I asked is it just me?  Or is anybody else having this same issue?

What you see is simply potatoes--posh word for bad players that always play badly. Lookup their stats, often they have hundreds or thousands of battles, but generally low average damage, low survival, low everything that matters.

Most of my games are digital, so I haven't thrown one away for quite a few years.

You are just seeing the ever growing separation in skills between some very good players that keep getting better and a larger group that isn't very good and doesn't improve.  The average player can only hope to get more of the former on his team.

It's summer, school is out and online games are full of ADHD twelve year olds. 

Back in the days when I did PvP my WR would always drop a few percentage points in the summer due to yoloing teenage tomatoes.

I aint the greatest player out there no way.  I'm trying to get to at least 50 percent.  I'm stuck in a rut at 47 percent but this is just getting to be ridiculous lol.  It aint helpin much.  I am though seeing the difference.

i don't know about throwing a game...but been playing in matches with players making some dumb [edited] choices. 

i dont know if its intentional or they just don't know what they are doing or "supposed" to do.

Consider running in a division with similarly skilled players, also consider using premium consumables (if you don't already) and only playing the best/OP ships. A lot of these guys who stat pad, that's how they do it.

Well I'm not one for divisioning.  I'm more of a solo person.  In this game anyway.  I think I'm just more frustrated with the lost match after lost match.  Well at least next week I'll be able to play with fire and hot metal to take a break.  But this is just getting to be a bit ridiculous.  Is summer vacation over yet?

I've got a low survival rate right now, trying to work on it.  But I still try to average out as a 50 percent daily player but some days is just BLAH.

You're going to have to be VERY good to solopub and have an over 50% WR.

Remember, 48% is actually average... because draws to exist. So at 47% you aren't that far off.

I did a lot of solopubbing over in WoT and got to 52% average before finally throwing in the towel on WG's particular flavor of PvP.

I totally agree. As time goes on and the game gets some age on it this happens.  I saw this in tanks.

The unicorn platoons that "mysteriously" get on the same team (sometimes 3 platoons) can make that game extremely frustrating to play if you are a solo player. Stomps.But it's allowed and it's more prevalent now in ships. Just have to deal with it. Random, at times, is simply not random at all. It's just how it is. I have all the respect in the world for a solo player that can pull a high win rate in these WG random matches. I sure can't.

Certain games lol I use to be good enough to be on competitive clan type. My old game, I use to be the guy that would run around knifing all the snipers in the back but saying look behind you before it would happen.  The less you play you loose your skills for gaming I'm finding.  Now as I get older it seems like my interest in gaming just slowly drops lol.  Its just a gap filler.  I mean its still enjoyable but I'm starting to find outside hobbies more enjoyable than staring at pixels lol.
