I got a weird experience. The game is rigged?

I played STB1 on the worst map you can play this tank on, Himmelsdorf. 

It started really bad for us. In start I lost down to about 300 hp and only traded one shot myself. Some other died in my team, we went down to 4-7 in running tanks.  We were all spread around the map. I got trapped in a corner by a French HT and Russian TD. But somehow both kept bouncing on me. Even the TD bounced in my back! I lucky destroyed the TD and escaped from the HT. 

It ended with all us 4 tanks left in my team sourvived and won. Even some of the red players wrote in chat he can't believe how they lost this game, looked like a win for them whole battle.

Looking at postgame I found this strange thing.

This battle was my number exact 36000! Wuhu!

I could see that some in my team also had taken a lot bounces. More than normal.

This makes me think that WG wanted to congratulate me with a victory, even though it should had been a loss. I dont have replay from it.

Do you think the game is rigged or have experienced something like this also?

Yes I experienced something similar yesterday on my second game. I was in an IS2 (1945) on desert sands. Went the normal heavy route, along with a KV2 and we had a commanding position raining fire on the reds, who were is disarray. I clobbered a poor Tiger 1, who was really too aggressive and the reds had an AMX, SU100Y, Hellfire, Sherman and another tank all in trouble. I knew the KV2 was on my left and we both pushed up together, as the reds were now down to almost no hit points - easy win. Alas, nope - all our team were dead! We lost, big time. 

 

Now i wouldn't say it is rigged, we just had a bad team, lost sight of the mini map and got tunnel visioned. It goes to show that you really do need to keep an eye on the mini map and know what is happening around you at all times!


Ours is not to reason why, ours is just to kill, kill kill

War is hell...maybe

I think you need an expert opinion.

Well, I was in my BT-7 in Himmelsdorf, having activated my ‘protected player’, ‘noob protect’ and ‘super stalinium’ consumables, in platoon with a 43% player, driving their IS-6 Fearless...despite getting off to a good start - driving into red spawn, ramming a Grille for 450HP, setting an engine fire on their Maus, I saw the rest of the team had gone to the E cap at the port, so I took a shortcut through the mountains and via the tunnel, and arrived to see the last of our heavies being pushed off the boat into the bay by 2 E100’s and our IS-7, IS-4 and T110E5 had been pummelled by their AMX 50’s and T57 double platoons...

 

Things were looking grim...  I went head to head with the lot of them, taking out all three E100’s, one AMX, and finished off a T57 with a lucky ammorack, but I was on 23 HP...  was this the end? Luckily, our Stürer Emil and came down from the windmill, and took out their Deathstar, Jageru, and took their Maus down to 400 HP, however a lucky HE shot took then both out.

 

I had to COD the Maus until 6:57... when I won by capping....

 

I agree with the OP.  This game is rigged.

You can bounce a 152 mm with a front plate of the SPC, nothing is impossible.

I the first evening game with T34 (1776) the turret blocked, haven't yet replayed to see what was wrong. It wasn't module damage though. so might have been some temp line failure or huge temp increase in ping. Otherwise all are v. 5.3. normal!!  

Interestingly though this morning I was playing in the same team with Calisota (1st time I see a CC playing in the general population), which might mean that CC's are out there evaluating the performance of the game. If that is happening it's, imo, a good thing.

Be grateful when the game is rigged for you. You definitely don't want it to rig against you and you know there are "examples" already. ;)

A dedicated hater of KV-2 since day one. (Unpopular opinion :P )

We really would want some protected players to recount their experience here to be able to asses the level of protection and the required steps to achieve it.

Could you buy or rent such an account and test it by yourself since you seem to have a great passion for this kind of things?

I would like to try the wombat or schnitzel one. If you can convince them, why not? :teethhappy:

Well start by platooning or doing countdowns with them and such a things to build a trust, establish a voice communication, analyze results together through replays, have a convention at Vienna and then ask if you could borrow their accounts in the name of science.

No, I am quite poor interacting with other humanoids, I don't understand them and they usually don't like me.

Alternative approach: star a new F2P account attached to disposable mail account, share login information with SSK and WB, agree which tanks to research, have multiple test runs, compare results. How about that?
