I seem to be having a phase where my very first game ever in a ship is great...

First the Nagato, now this little beast. I just got her today from a Santa Crate and, to quote Humphrey Bogart, "I think this may be the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

How did you get a tech tree ship in a Santa crate?

The Kidd is a premium ship. That's how.

It is how the game is programmed.  Your first few matches are always pretty good, then the bottom falls out.

I've seen it happen too many times for it to be a coincidence.

This is absolutely right. The mm favors you forst three games or so. In tech tree lines the last two or three before you earn enough xp to unlock the next ship are the same.

Laugh about tinfoil theories, but there is a precedent in WoT.

Indeed.  If every match I've ever played turned out like the first few matches in nearly every ship I've unlocked, I'd be an 85% Dark Purple Hyper-Unicum.

Mine is the opposite. The first game is terribad. The 3rd one is when it turns around.

WOT has a forum... perhaps you should go there....with heresy and confirmation bias....there are players who are above 80% and those below 40, so your theories are just theories and opinions of bad games....no one here has ever had indisputable proof of any conspiracy to keep the player base at bay with rigged battles and MM... just accusations and speculation... its shameful... but everyone has to have a reason to be bad, and they blame WG instead of getting better... I aint good at all, and I blame MYSELF... whats your excuse??

 

and BTW confirmation bias is not PRECEDENT...its just one guy saying why he is not doing well... and not accepting blame for not doing well...

I've had this happen to me so many times.  First battle is awesome, then BLAP!  It then takes time to figure out the ship and if I'll do well in her.

Am just pointing out there is something similar going on in WoT; Even a WG employee confirmed it as you can find on the link of the reddit thread. Is it tinfoil and conspiracy theory to say there could be similarities between the two games as far as the first few battles are concerned?

Stop using words you don’t understand. Somebody once said confirmation bias now you spurt it whenever you see someone saying something you dont comprehend

No conspiracy,  just a comment based on observation, and talking to others that I know personally that play the game.

I distinctly remember suboctavian mentioning that there was a MM "nice mode" for the first few battles in a new ship.  It was several years ago and it'll probably take me hours to find it, but I'll try.  It's possible I'm remembering wrong and it's also possible they've removed it if it did exist.

you really are apiece of work... I dont have to be burdened with proof #1... #2  only people who seem to NOT grasp the game as well as others scream that MM is rigged, and other factors that they are bad, except the fact that they are just BAD at the game.. Most people who rant and whine about MM and bad ships and such are sub par players.. I have not seen a player over 60% rant and whine about MM the way this guy is...
And it has already been pointed out that this guy is just bad... and that bad is brought into the WR equation. and adds to the lessr % of WR..
Remember lower % have a bigger effect on dropping the WR% than higher number % WR do.. there is no proof needed, its basic math..
If you lose a game your WR% drops farther than if you were to win a game.. and after thousands of  battels it has a bigger effect. although not lrger NUMBERS.. a loss drops WR more than a win brings it up..
Now the fact that you yourself are as good as most of the above average player base (like me) Seems to make you think more on the side of conspiracy and then you would need PROOF that MM is rigged to make YOU fail (what about the other 11 members of the team?) And poor you...
Well thats not true, and you cannot prove its true.. I DO NOT HAVE TO PROVE ITS NOT TRUE, because it is just simply NOT TRUE.,. there are no numbers to prove that validity of a rigged GAME.. and the numbers of the entire player base PROVES THAT.. if it was rigged NO ONE WOULD BE ABOVE A CERTAIN NUMBER THAT WE WOULD ALL BE HELD AT BECAUSE MM WOULD MAKE EVERYONE (lets say...) 55%... and if you went ABOVE 55% the MM would group you all on one team to lose 4 games to bring you down to about 54 53%... it onlt takes a few games to drop about, on average, 1-1.5% per loss... and you would go up about a half percent a win, after a fewe thousand games...
Now I know EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW about all the words I use.. you come here and sput all this [edited], without knowing me (the real me not this account) and think, "ah, this guy doesnt know a thing with 500 games or so) well you are wrong, and every single word you have said is wrong..
the proof that the game is not rigged is in the ENTIRE PLAYER BASE... the proof that it is rigged has NEVER EVER been shown and can never be... 

Now go crawl back under that GD rock you came out of you POS TROLL and stop being someone that has NO CLUE what he is talking about and come to intimidate someone he MISCALCULATED as a child... you are nothing, and your "OPINION" means less than nothing to me, and everyone else that knows YOU and all the other tinfoil hat wearing trolls are just that... Trolls that come here to start flame wars...
I have no use for you at all, and my ignore list grows daily... YOU sir are awarded no points, and my GOD have mercy on your soul...

You dont have any proving the contrary either. We have our observations, and are clearly more attentive than you.

Oh really, I am sorry I did not realize that you having an OBSERVATION is an actual FACT and is UNDISPUTED PROOF that it is actually TRUE, not just something you THINK IS TRUE CAUSE OF A HANDFUL OF GAMES...
Really??
my bad...
