I SOOO wish I could name this person.

A VERY popular member of these forums was on my team in my last match.

Before a single shot was fired.. before we even left spawn was already saying to people that this was a probable loss already because they had better players on the red team.

I HAD to Bark back at that [edited].  I did.

GUESS WHO DIED FIRST???

Yep.

This happened after we rallied to prove that lame pre-quitter person wrong!

Look at the time it took too!

The APP that makes this possible is prob the main reason for rollovers. even LONGTIME players just quit..and worse DEMOTIVATE others because of it.

You are 100% correct.   This exact thing is what killed off WoT or at least made it miserable to play.  The use of XVM to "predict" wining and losing based on the collective win rates of the time, created a self-fulfilling prophecy where the team rated as having the least chance to win, just gave up from the start which is what guaranteed that XVM's prediction was right.  I honestly don't understand why people are so stupid about this sort of thing.   I mean most of us would easily bet $100 to win $1000 on a 40% chance to win, but when they feel that they have a 60% chance to lose a match, they just give up and go complain in the corner how bad each of their teammates are.

Send us all a DM through forums, we won't spill it. Its against rules anyway. But at least we know, so we can plan accordingly. :cap_cool:

Just give us a DM. We want to know who uses such a stupid app. We can't name, but at least they are well known by us all to use it. We can better prepare if we see them again.

You don't play randoms to win.

You play to get credits and experience, winning is a happy side-effect.

A few years after open beta. A player in randoms told my team I was a sub 50% player and that Colorado I have is barely new. He predicted my team would lose. He also pointed out 3 other players as having bad win records. 

After much discussion amongst ourselves, our team proceeded to whip their arses. We all got flaming mad, whipped it out, and flogged that red team in 11 minutes. The guy that called us out hugged that back line like he was going to end up in another dimension. But a team mate nailed him from downtown with his Colorado. 

After that incident, I never heard of this kind of behavior until rework.

Stat shaming, or even stat shaming your own team has dire consequences I agree. 

It can make the arrogant humble and the mighty fall flat on their butts. 

The games are played. Don't believe some app. 

Great work. Shame you disappointed him. I predict that player will stop. 

Awesome team to snatch that from a purported super duper team. Or it could be that you guys were just way better than some stupid app.

To quote the baseball great Yogi Berra, "It ain’t over till it’s over". In other words never quit.

In the 5 years I have been playing I have seen this happen once. Not sure if it is worth creating a thread about it though.

Obviously, because you have only seen it once it must never happen then.

Personally, I see some form of this nearly every day.

I guess I am lucky. I did not see many players quiting a match in WOT due to XVM either. I did see people complaining about the win chance but not just giving up. I just take it as a bonus when you win.

100% agree OP.  I have had that a few times where they:

1.  Quit because of the MM tool

2.  Quit because of a specific class (usually CV)

3.  Quit because there were 1 or 2 pinkies or players they claimed to know and dislike

4.  Yolo'd for any reason or combo above

5. Sailed to the back of the cap for any of the reason above and hurled insults while everyone else played.

Hopefully they get weeded out or leave under their own power.

Yes, not all quit that is what I meant by "some form of it". Many whine or complain and then do not try so hard to win.

1 letter every day through a series of separate threads. Itll be like a scavenger hunt.

Yeah I only seen it twice . Though the last time was yesterday in ranked. Zao decided that the team wasn't spread out well enough ( which it really wasn't)  so he anounced to the reds that his team was all bad and hiding behind the same islands and headed to J1 and sat there for 10 minutes doing nothing.... Once he realised that despite all the camping behind the same island we were actually winning due to efforts from my Grozi and a Somers, he joined us to get a bit of damage from the last kill.

Sends me into a rage when guys state "This is a loss" right at game start then suicide their ship or drive off to a corner.

Obviously due to MMM. 

They need to ban it. It serves no purpose other than poisoning the well.
