What happens when they were all on the other team?

Funny thing is they weren't all potatoes.

Took 105K of HP off of a Nelson and he was a 53% WR player with 243 battles in the Nelson.  He just kept sailing along broadside to me on the other side of an island.  It was glorious.

We tend to remember the turkeys on our team, but quickly forget the turkeys on theirs.

We also forget that we were turkeys once, before we evolved into the proud and noble condors we all are now...

Only one true fact concerning MM, If our team wins it was fair. If we lose, it was clearly rigged. I would bet money on it.

Noticed this as well lately.

Normally when I click on the post game stats of the bottom players when my team was terrible I'm used to seeing 40-45%. Lately I'm seeing more 50 percenters consistently at the bottom. Not sure why the trend is failing upwards.

There's a caveat to that and it's 3 minutes into the battle all of your DD's are dead most of the team lemming one side and the BB's are all at max range taking shots a enemy DD's.

 

Funny thing is it's not just the weekends lol.

When the reds thought they had the game in their bag. Their division of almost a full health Gascogne, Kii and the Kagero decided to brawl me. Took them down in a spawn of 3 minutes changing the game for us :D

Uh, I don't hate weekend players. I still don't understand why anyone would hate someone just because they don't play as much.

I prefer it when both teams play well and battle is hard fought. Those are the exciting battles.

Right, and those close and exciting battles happen regardless of the amount of "weekend players" in the battle. What is desirable is an equal distribution of those players.

Attempt at humor or not, I would feel nothing but insulted if that were said to me.

I've been having some pretty enjoyable games lately. I'm not winning a whole lot of them, but they're enjoyable regardless...

In WOT Blitz where you can more quickly get stats checked after a battle I noticed it is not really the flood of clueless players during Summer Vacation, Holidays, or Weekends that can cUse you to lose, it is the distribution of the good players. If you are only good player on your team, but enemy team got 2-3 good players then you can see how that could be a problem.

I am ready for the kids to go back to school though, so that I can make heavy use of some of my slower Royal Navy BBs again. I can put up good scores in those, but can’t relocate quickly in them. Then I started taking losses because I could not go save a a base in time, so sadly those ships have been mothballed until Fall. Only my fast BBs, Cruisers, CVs, and DDs are able to move around the map fast enough to shore up things as needed. Also the reason I am trying to save up Doubloons for next time Scharnhorst goes on sale so I can have yet another ship to use for doing this.

I'm going back to school later this month. You only have to hold out for a few more weeks.

So many people go into random battles expecting this or that - a close battle, a high level of play, cooperative teammates.. It's absurd to expect these things, and the people who do expect them feel more disappointed than anything else. The wiser approach by far is to simply accept a battle for what it is, without expectation. That way there is relatively little disappointment. And it's much more likely that you'll enjoy the positive aspects of the game since your mind won't be occupied by frustration and disappointment.

If only people understood how much they benefit from the existence of "unskilled" players..

I have benefited so much that my win rate has dropped from 52%+ to barely above 50%. Always in the top 3-5 of the team, but dropping like a stone nonetheless.

I could do without those kind of benefits.

Great philosophy...but do you know what they also have in common?  From the neck up, they are both butt ugly...

Your win rate has dropped because of you, not them. No one has such bad luck, sorry.
