Last night / early this morning was the worst losing streak yet in Ranked. Went from 9 to 12 with no stars. I hate it when that happens but it's like no matter what was tried aggressive, defensive, both, neither, nothing mattered. Even was in a game where several top tier clan members was involved it just slowly melted and fell apart. I was like "GEEZ"  Then the stubborn side kicked in. Just how deep does this rabbit hole go? So off I went, till was pushed against 12 with no stars irrevocable. Right where I started. Anybody else get a bad case of "keep banging your head against the wall see what happens" 

And before its mentioned. Yes I was trying, no I wasn't throwing. Like I said, one game even had several people from top 10 clan's not going to mention who, but I recognized them and it still fell apart. Normally I have the circuit breaker of 3 losses and out. Just was stubborn, and this time it did not pay off.

I think most players are familiar with this. It's like the game says "nope, you have reached your win quota for today". From here on out, it's all losses for you. It's actually quite amazing how it just keeps going considering the statistical improbability growing exponentially for each loss in a row. Some might say, "uh, well, but the only common denominator here is you. you just got to carry harder and not play tilted". But seriously... Even if you were afk during all those lost matches, the chances of all of them being losses approaches astronomical as they go on. It's like there's a switch being flipped somewhere.

Yep, eventually, I just turned off WoWs and went to play Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE...

When I drop three in a row (random or ranked) I log off and take a break.  No need to add insult to injury...

I think some players don't have the luxury of being able to just postpone their WoWs session. A lot of people set off time specifically to play. They might have some limited free time where they're not busy with other things, so when they hit a loss streak they just keep going.

When I loose more than three games in a row, I take a break. Stand up, drink a glass. When that doesn‘t help I still got a stash of Point n Click Adventures laying around.

Time of reflection and resolve.

I should not have pressed the issue. Have cooled off since last night. I don't recommend doing what I did to anybody. Just got really frustrated and looking at the screen with glaring eyes of fury and disbelief.

Probably won't be able to recover from that foolish move. Was really going to push for the #1 rank mark. Probably not enough time left to do so. Anyways, good luck to everyone else playing ranked.

Finding ranked really difficult in arms race, 2 or 3 games win or lose is all I can take

Man, after four losses in a row (normally I'm 3 L's and I'm done for the day). I was really irritated and determined to win one before going to bed. The hits just kept rolling in. Eventually I was back at spawn. So in one night undoing several days work.

But to your point I suppose so lol. :Smile_teethhappy:
