11 games today all losses. It's like people want to die. They rush in repeatedly and then complain about dying.

They need more than just lame 12v12 randoms. Getting so i don't even want to log in and do them anymore. It's gotten to just be not fun. And i know this game can be fun but it's limitation is the players.

Been there before. I usually play a few random matches to grind xp on my tech boat lines. Then I switch to coop to finish out daily missions. Sometimes I win the randoms. Usually I lose. And usually those losses happen when half the team gets blasted 7 minutes into the game.

Yep, streaks happen both good and bad but we tend to notice the bad ones the most.

That is basically my matches in a nut shell lately. Half the team gets blasted and then the other half hangs on for 10 mins but loses in the end. I get we aren't supposed to win all matches but streaks like this only serve to make people walk away from the game. I'm not proposing a fix by any means but it really doesn't help someone have fun when fun is losing no matter how well you perform as a player.

Yes yes i know there's rank play but that's just too toxic for me. Sprints are great, but not frequent enough.

I honestly cannot remember where i went a 11 win streak like ever queuing solo. Losses on the other hand, well there's no shortage of those in the last couple days. 

Thing is with this "streak" is it's lasted all day inbetween taking breaks and doing other things as i've tried really hard to not go on tilt.

I love this game but i'm getting kindy weary of the mechanics. And lack of options.

Should stop after three. 

I will continue if I feel I am playing good, which is when the bad streaks are the most frustrating, at least for a few more. If I have been stinking the place up I may not make it to three.

That's a fair point. Given all the steamrolls these days, I would definitely trade a few crappy wins for some well-played losses.

I've been grinding campaigns which has been the only reason i continued. Stupidly hoping the next match might go better. 

I guess it's no different than gambling. The next one is a winner for sure!

End up going home broke. It's why i don't gamble heh.

Welcome to world of tanks on water

One of my biggest annoyances with this game is the near line per line copy of WoTs absurd vision and spotting system. Its the biggest reason you have constant blow outs like this. Plus, the neurotic addiction to domination style games which encourage players to yolo so Matches end as soon as possible. One lucky DD player or smart CV player gets a team spotted and they are half dead.

Spotting needs to be more limited to ship to ship engagements or slowed down so it's not instantaneous. This is not WoT , DDs are not tank destroyers, and all engaging ships need more parity.

I think the thing that makes a string of losses sting is when you spend so much time in a match you know is doomed. Two mins into a match where half the team is dead and it takes another 10 to wrap up.

That's 10 mins of demoralizing play time.

I had 2 days of 20% win rates thanks to abysmal match making. Today I went 9 wins straight, this game is so random in the B S luck department..

When you are in the top 3 of your team every time... no.

When you check the stats in-game of the other players in a tier VIII-X match and find out the highest W/R on your team aside from yourself, is 43%... no.

When you are in a tier VII Light Cruiser and you do better that the tier IX Heavy Cruisers and BBs (see above)... no.

 

I have gone from playing 8-12 games a day down to maybe 3 on average and it is entirely due to the quality of the other players.  I don't see the point of playing a game that ends up making me mad.

Every day is an awful day for randoms.

The amount of sheer stupidity one now regularly sees in matches is almost too much to bear.  Been playing co-ops now more than ever, just to cope.

I dunno.  Maybe it's me...

Been there amigo. It's frustrating as hell, and even more so when the win is in the bag and the team throws it in the end because, more damage > win

There is actually some real probability involved here.  There is the basic 50/50 random part that says a purely equal fest will deliver three straight losses 12.5% of the time.  But there is also a skew factor due to divisions and clans.  If a good division is roaming a tier notch without a similar division for balance, on a low queue night, then the odds really are stacked against you.  Instead of the 12/24 (50%), you are now working a 9/27 (33%) which takes that 12.5% chance of three straight loses to about a 30% chance.  A short break often allows the skew to flush out as the division moves along, a counter division enters the queue, or the queue line increases enough to swamp it.
