Is it just me or anyone else noticed truly horrific teams over last week? I’ve tried everything, every tier and normal teams are beyond the pale, with ranked being either 7-0 or 0-7 steamrolls which is also not fun. I’ve played the game since the start, have 35,000 battles and have never ever seen it this bad.

 

I don’t subscribe to the tinfoil hat “WG are personally nerfing me!!!”  nutjobs, but something has changed lately and I strongly suspect they are ranking players and giving us afkers and trolls to balance the teams. Anyone else?

It is appalling, I stated in a different thread that for 3 years my 30 day wr has virtually never moved....since 5.3 it has plummeted. I've got higher tier in 95% of battles and am getting strange goings on with tanks that are normally solid and reliable.

Wg is certainly trying to bring everyone to 50%.... and not in a very subtle way.

Below are my stats since 26th of sept and 30th of sept. A lot of those losses have been in the st emil which is difficult to carry in if the team is BAD. I'd say the teams have been bad but not worse than before. Seems like bad players come in force for a week or two and then go back to their ca caves\rocks\zoos for a month or so.

It's harder to carry because the playerbase you meet has become more experienced since 5.3 (no more players below 5000 games, as WG has de facto admitted). As I have always been saying: less noobs, less WR. The reason why you think there are more noobs is the same that some think there are more noobs in Tier X than in Tier VI: The better the overall player quality the harder noobish performance is punished. If everyone is bad you don't realise how bad they are. If you have a few good players on both teams you do.

MM was changed recently, WG confirmed it in a way. Like it was discussed under MM thread, sixty_three observed (and some others confirmed after monitoring their battles) that, normally, are no longer players with less than 5000 battles in up tiers (most likely they are playing in a separated queue). 

 

What I observed is that number of players with no / low damage increased and this is the most visible in tier 10.


Thank you for removing timers and spare parts, now please do the same with Military Honor !

Funny funny...I’m still trying to work things out after last week experiences to become an improved version of one major forum caricature...

 

...but it’s very confusing lately, things that used to work don’t work meta wise. Teams sitting near spawn turning turrets and don’t act is very usual even in t9-10 to an extent that makes me get repulsive atm.

 

or it’s just a statistic variation that grow in my head, nerfing me effectively

 

#tinfoil #shootme (like everyone else atm)

High tiers seem to work better for me than before.

Bad teams mean better chance to improve your winrate (if u can carry that is)

 

i find that after school times between 16-20 many kids will play. Same as weekends.

Shocking teams. I can handle the odd team of 35%-45% players but when you get them 10 to 15 games in a row it's making me want to give up.

I’ve had loads of bad runs over 35k battles and one epic losing streak in my IS4 of over 20 games in a row. But I’ve not had days of appalling teams, whatever the tier. By appalling I mean 3-4 players per game made up of afk, trolls, malicious downvotes, campers and window lickers, most with around 40% wr. Something has changed and I strongly suspect it’s skill based mm.

I guess then my averageness is confirmed, not really noticed a change apart from it is a bit more of a struggle.

Just wondering if this is skill based, is anyone liking it better? It seems so many have asked for that, that if it was introduced there should be great rejoicing.

I've sent tickets in to customer support and the reply is always the same. 'Nothing has changed'.....[edited]. The endless run of bad teams is blatant. Wg know damn well what's going on, but their sole interest is new blood. And the experienced player is now no longer valued. New blood brings new money, old hands are wise to the game, wg don't like that.

Hi, where WG has confirmed this? I have never heard about this league-like MM feature.

 

I think the previous events 50%-XP discounts are in works. Noobs get faster to tier X. Why grind and practice?

 

Psycho, I think you are just tired. I check your stats and your spot rate is abnormally high (1.90) compared to your 90 days average of 1.51:

 

I know it is a constant crap-show out there. So bad teams game after game. My wife said me yesterday that she can't play PUPG at the same room with me since I keep swearing so loud. I don't think anything has changed. I know that I need few days of rest from the game to recharge my mental battery.

Wow-wow. What happened? Does this mean there a real mod here? I am sorry for your Warning Point, but think the bright side of life:
