I feel your pain

I was on the verge of a 51% overall and the last 3 days have found me with turd teammates. Kill 4.. lose. Kill 3.. lose. Get the highest points on the team by double - lose.

Platooning with FYYFF's helped on several rounds but even then there were teams that were beyond help.
I'm now 49%.

It has to get better right?

Perfect example was a round just now; screen cap right as the schooling "battle" ended. I was second last tank standing:


I dunno if the match maker is not programmed right or what.. but it seems far fewer battles are coming down to "3 vs 3" or other close battles and more are resulting in blow-outs like this one.

I have quit looking at my stats. The game is fun if I let it be.

On a happy note, I'm getting pretty good at drifting my Luchs It verges on uncontrollable when I'm trying to get a quick shot off on the run.

I stopped caring a while ago......If I make money on the game that is ok....heck I usually do ok even on the high tier tanks...but only by a few hundred or so.

First or second place, every game this morning - 3 losses, 1 win.... and the onyl reason we won was because I saw the tier-8 team wanted to lose, so I switched to Gold rounds and started doing everyone's work. I had over 3,600 damage in a tier 8 medium tank, where none of my team even reached 2000 damage.

I can even out-damage most tier 8 players I'm getting this morning with a T21 tier-6 light tank - that's how bad they're playing. There was serious mental-hospital playing going on.

This happens whenever the kiddies are out of school. Odds are you'll be on the winning side once in a while. Just roll with it.

Every time I need coins I go in and sell all the barrels/radios/turrets/etc I'm not using but had used in the past.

It usually ends up being quite a bit!
