Do you think sometimes the game just hates you?

My 1st 2 coops have not been good. They were wins but today my DD has encountered an Atlanta & Fiji plus the ship I was targeting. It appears I have a isolated target & fire. Then it's like they spawn & fire the moment I press the fire button.

Well the 3rd time was a charm, no Fiji's or Atlanta's to spawn after I engage an enemy target.

 

BTW, please don't take post like this one too seriously.

Haven’t even bothered playing Randoms in PT except for a very few times.

Pretty much all bots anyway, so might as well just play Co-op.

it was all real players in this case, they have missions for rewards on the main server but yeah they want you playing randoms.  Tomorrow once submarine battles open up i hope it will be t6's  but I am not holding my breath...

I just unlocked a new ship. Thus far I've been coming in first or second on my team in every game I play with it. The only problem is that it's been on the losing team.

I'm about as evidence and science based as they get.   And even I sometimes really, really wonder whether or not there's some sort of MM switch that can be used nefariously by the folks behind the curtain.

But that would almost certainly show up in the global stats and since everyone seems to trend towards 50%...when I'm sober and not particularly angry about anything, I have to admit it's probably just mostly anecdote and selection bias.

Understand that WG is only in business to make money. 

The very best in behavior analysis and AI goes into categorizing your personality and finding what drives your interest and investment in this game.

I'd like to say I'm impervious to their efforts, but...  yeah...   they get me a few times.  But it's amazing to see how the system worked me over.

See my stats in the Nelson vs other battleships.

Thats eye opening on how the system 'works'...

The game?  Sometimes I think life in general hates me.  The game is just along for the ride.

The MM and gameplay feed the monetization strategy...

for sure, but this was PTS, and they give you all T6 and all T8 ships... not sure if the 10's are available...  i should be gittin good... but i am finding randoms so frustrating... and taking the easy way ou to coops... i'll never improve if i do that...  but +2's don't help... they don't happen all the time... (well they do on PTS)
