So, need 2 wins to finsh French progression mission. After 2 days of playing i give in and admit defeat. So far today i have played 11 games for 11 straight defeats in a variety of ships, tiers and classes.. I did quite well in most games, i was in top 2 or 3 in team result but not a single win. In every game the enemy capped, pushed forward and dominated while my teams milled about and achieved nothing. In my last game i was in Montana, pushed forward to tank damage for team and was basically abandoned to my fate by the team who as usual pulled back and ran to border. When playing as a DD i push toward cap engage enemy DD and i am focused by ALL enemy in range but not one of my team will shoot at the DD or help at all. I tried a Belfast game and was again abandoned and then overwhelmed. Now gonna go watch a movie and try to regain some sanity. Anyone else getting similar results ?

Sometimes playing more selfishly can help a lot. It forces other people to make a move (if they want to win). Sometimes they have more influence on the fleet or their flotilla and/or you can capitalise on their action rather than hoping they act on yours.

I made the decision to stop burning me out altogether for those missions. If I make it, fine. If not, evenly fine. I can only bother myself if it's a realistic grind, depending on skill and stamina. Like gain x XP, credits, deal X damage a.s.o. But those "win x" battles is the best way to get into a losing streak. Or win/ top 3. I either win in the bottom 8 or lose in the top 3.

Yeah, same. I just play and when I accidentally finish a mission it's nice.

 

However this mission gives a unique captain and I really want to unlock that. It's just unclear to me if I have to finish the entire collection (3 pages) or only one of the tabs.

I think the best solution to that is to join a division. Especially if you need wins and if you are with people you've already played with and you know each others playstyle, and of course having 3 different classes in the division helps a lot (DD-CA-BB) as you can support each other and even hold the flank when outnumbered or push if needed which 3 man BB division or 3 man DD division can't really do.

Whenever I hit 3 successive defeats, I log out, turn off the computer, (do something else), restart the computer and relog in the game.

Nope... usually I am lucky enough to manage to get at least a 10% winrate by being lucky to have at least a 1 in 10 "not getting a potato team" quota.

I disagree :)

we were in a 3x shima toon yesterday

all loaded with 20km torps

held the enemy lemming train quite nicely :)

and it was hilarious.. the reaction from the enemy team was priceless

a coordinated play from 3 shimas...

at some point the enemy DM said, "Feck it, it doesnt worth the stress!" and he bailed!

I had a very similar experience last night.

I needed 6 more wins to complete the French Progression mission.

I started to play around 19:15 and until 22:00 I played 15 battles out of which 3 was a win, 12 was a loss. Ship tiers varied from V to X and switched ship classes as well. Nothing helped. The typical battle was in which my team lost 5-6 ships in the first 8-10 minutes and enemy had landslide victory.

Additional wins were not possible till 23:00, up till this point in time I played solo.

After that a clan-mate joined me to division up but even with that it was 00:20 the next day (1.5hours) by the time we managed to pull out 3 wins out of which 1 was also almost a loss. In division we did 50% winrate.

 

To be honest, this is ridiculous.

I do know that I'm by far not a good player. But even with this considered having 25% winrate in a 3 hrs period is a very severe statistical extreme.

 

Had completed the job, but...

The French campaign missions where only hard because of the 'wins' required, which is not very easy when the MM has decided to give you a beating.

 

I've played this game long enough now to know that the MM is far from random, the casino gives better odds. It flips players between cannot lose and cannot win modes. The latter can be so bad it is absolutely demoralising.

 

It doesn't matter if I have a good game or a shocker, I am far a good player, but hopefully better than a half-baked potato. If the MM has put me into win mode, I will win regardless of performance. If the MM has put me into carry mode, I'm just not good enough to carry. The worse thing is, is that sometimes you top the exp board despite playing badly, raising the question if some people are playing cruising simulator. Even a really good game won't win the match, because one individual has sunk more ships and caused more damage then the rest of the team combined.

 

But the losing streaks can be so long and vicious that is puts me off wanting to play the game. We tend not to notice the winning runs so much, but recently I went from a 60%+ weekly win rate to 40%. After a brief respite of a daily 85% win rate, it was back to the constant losing streak again. These things can happen for lengths of up to 3 weeks which is enough to lose the will to live.

This will, in the long term, kill the game for many players. Why play a game where no matter how high my contribution, I will lose? Why spend money on such game?

WG says the MM works and is fair, but they have a history of lying, so no one believes them. In the end the only victims are the players that get bored with constantly losing and leave the game.
