A serious question about Matchmaking (and a bit of a rant, too)

How does matchmaking work?

...or should I say, NOT WORK?

 

 

I admit, I got upset and potatoed in the last few games which badly brought my performance down, but I carried my weight and was often in the top 3 on the team in many of the rest.

 

I get it. Some people are going to say "In some battles, you contributed to the loss" or "Stop caring. If you carry your weight it's not your fault and you've done enough." Yes. I agree. I review what I do wrong and what I do right after any battle.

 

But a question I've asked before goes unanswered. If your team of [insult here] potatoes melts and loses in 10 minutes over and over again... Where are all the wins going? What can be done to break a streak alone?

As you said, being on tilt is a major contributer. Sometimes you win some sometimes you lose some. 

 

Its time for a break, weekend potatoes are coming...

Or div with deathskyz. :teethhappy:

 

I'm no stranger to losing streaks as well Interkon. Happens to me numerous times as well. Either grit yr teeth and carry on or take a break. Me... I will stop if it's 3 loses in a row and MM is not favorable.

Yeah I think we all get those days or evenings when it appears the world is against you no matter how hard you carry.

I think the best advice is posted grin and bare it or quit and take a break.

At the point where that happened, it was literally my 2nd ever battle in a destroyer like that, so that's not at all your fault. I actually became decent at it after the initial struggle, but Matchmaker opposed.

Now that I think about it, today was particularly unlucky.

 

Minus Matchmaker opposing me...

 

 

-The 5th battle I had in Farragut, I landed 130 shells. For ONE fire.

 

-And the 6th battle... Every other DD on my team, and a battleship too... DETONATED.

Honestly, weekends are the days of my best win streak. (looks back at the screenshots of 35 win streak - in division of course). Potatoes are present in both teams, you just have to kill their potatoes before they kill your potatoes. Also, you need to a little bit research. Some tiers are better to play (and some ship classes) at specific server times ;)
