Well we tried and, once again, we’re done with this game. We will prob come back at some point in the future but we’re not spending one more penny on this poorly developed game. We have been playing for two nights in a row since the recent update and have literally been unable to win ONE round (OK to be fair, we won ONE game out of probably 30 games). We’ve NEVER had such low numbers. Due to the poor mm process, we keep getting the same players on our team and the same players on the opposite side EVERY GAME. So once again, the mm process is pathetic.
On top of that, they weakened frigates to such a low strength that any small ship can take it out. Now, they add bots who do nothing but get into frigates. Lame.
I guess that explains why the game went from 4000 players to 500.
Ever though that you might be the reason of your “win” streak?
Every time i join a new game, or start flying new role, higher tier, new mode, first thing i do, i tell myself: “xKostyan, you sux, big time”, what areas i sux at most? what do i do to get better? how do i ask for information, who do i follow to learn? After EVERY lost game, i spend a minute or 2 and try to remember what mistake i made, not my team, i, personally and how much stronger would’ve my team be if i did not do those mistakes, and what you should have done instead of those mistakes. Or simply remembering why i didnt kill that guy here or there? Is it my dodging? Did i stupidly run over his mine? Did i hit all of my shots, maybe my aim sux? Is sensitivity on my mouse is good enough to perform on those speeds etc etc etc, there are hundreds of factors, no one is perfect, but people that realise that do get better much faster…
It is perfectly feasible to be that much of a contribution weight, even in 12v12 games to tilt a game for your team, the smaller games are, more weight each player has.
Good examples that i just had, 30 minutes ago:
4v4, it is a 4x man [NOVA] squad, 1500-1700 players. We are 3x man [NASA] 1500-1600 +a random guy 1200, obviously he is cut out of our communication, because we use Team Speak, plus this random guy did not have his best game as well, dying 4 times 4-5 minutes into the game, leaving us 3v4. But at the end we won by kills, we had +7 kills, and that considering 4 frags from random guy.
3v3(2 man NASA+random) vs 2 man squad + random. our guy, literally wasted all his ships within 2 minutes, so for 10 minutes it is 2v3 and both of us had NO healer equipped, we killed them all.
My point is, in every single PvP game, there are players that comes in,have no clue how to play but believe they are pros, how hard can it be? get killed by older players, and then blame team mates for everything, while they are at the bottom of efficiency charts with zero points. There are games that are not carriable, and you have to be a god to win those, but 1/30 is not a matchmaking fault, especially judging by the way you comment on frigates, you have no idea how balance works here, even though in T1-T2 frigs are UP they still hurt and can wreck stuff.
Conclusion: Whenever you join a new game for you, never expect to wreck faces and get disappointed because you didn’t, you gonna get wrecked for awhile and you gotta learn from that.
