@title.

Anyone else experienced this before? Should I stop for awhile?

 

For the last 3 days my W/R dropped by 0.2% while grinding a few T8s and yes mostly 3-5-7 mid to low placements and it's very fraustrating. 

 

Yes I use XVM and I really don't want to point fingers here, but I don't really see an even distribution of skill levels, e.g more reds (yes reds not oranges) on my side as opposed to the enemy's. There were roughly 8+ or so games where I did jack all and made too many mistakes, so I intend to improve on that.

 

Should i just avoid t8s all together? Or just take a break?

The only 8 I will play at the moment are light tanks.

 

Im finding T9 the sweet spot.

It's skill-based MM at work. Both teams will have the same number of good players.

 

However when they introduced 3:5:7 they forgot to take into account that players will be bottom tier more than half the time. Then when applied with skill-based MM this ensures the you being the good player means your team always has a good player at bottom tier which means the top tier will always be a tomato.

 

If don't believe, observe the distribution of good players on both teams' top tier.

Yep, I've been getting that. Took a massive hit to overall WR as a result, and am still 0.17% below where I was before. I have XVM, but haven't updated the service in a while, so can't tell in game how bad the teams are, but when I had so many games in a row where a third to half of the team do no damage pretty much almost every game, I've come to the expectation that the game will be a loss. I just play to see how spectacularly the next team will fail.

 

Tier 9+ is mostly full of noobs who spam gold (from my experience anyway), because aiming requires too much skill, and since the playerbase has extreme difficulty with the WASD keys and left click as it is, they obviously need a crutch when shooting.

 

Tiers 5-7 aren't much better for win rate, but there's fewer gold noobs*, that's about it.

 

Perhaps you should just take a break for a few days. Go back to a more productive hobby. I know I certainly will.

 

 

*I always hear people talk about the upper tiers not being profitable, but I'm almost exclusively hit by gold from those tiers (tier 10s need to fire gold at tier 8s?). If they're firing ammo that's 5x more expensive than standard then of course they're not going to make any credits.

Yeah, wotlabs says the Sir_Direkin clan isn't found. Odd bug that it'll look under clans.

 

MM has been 'meh' so far, but I've unlocked and bought a tier IX (the M53/M55), bought the AMX 13 75, and two marked the T1 Heavy (at long last; RNG really wasn't helping in that second last game). I'm only about 40k exp away from my target BC 12t, so will pick that up in a few days (won't play this weekend). Not bad for one week I guess.

 

I'd want to free exp the top gun on the M53/M55 before moving the crew over. According to MoE Extended my average damage in the T1 Heavy is above the 95% mark, and I only have 75 games on that, so maybe I'll see if I can 3 mark it within the next 25 games. The thing is I really don't like that tank (gigantic, weak armour, gun handling poor), and I'm not looking forward to playing the M6 either (also gigantic, same weak armour, but one tier higher), so I dunno. Hopefully can unlock/purchase the BC 25t AP by the end of the On Track; all I'll need then is to unlock two more girlies from personal missions to crew it.

If me, I'll save free xp just for 25AP, it got pretty harsh grind. Arty stock grind are easy, and 12T also have pretty nice stock grind. Batchat stock grind also damm easy, its waste to use free xp if you dont have much of it.

MM behaved normally yesterday, a more even distribution of player skills.

Really? Doesn't affect me though. I am still maintaining my zero loss rate. :trollface:
