I understand you (asuming you are not one of those that are sometimes on my team, and completely ignore the objectives and keep trying to kill the captain alone or carrying the bomb to the furthest station instead of the neares or if you are that kind of interceptor that loves to Thud! or if you are that guy with a 20k surv guard with nothing fitted or if you are the dude flying and engeneer without heal for team or if you are a lone charger, or if you are the kinda guy that sees an int crushing your engie and you ignore) it is hard to endure a defeat streak when you try your best, to carry the team and even so doesnt win.
Raging will get you nowhere, that’s for sure. Bad teams happens, all the time, you have to deal with it and still give your best to try and keep a good performance. Sometimes you can even help that “bad” team and achieve a victory, but it takes playing for the objectives, and writing to your teammates (with respect) asking them to come with you and help you.
I agree with you, but i also disagree. Sure, if i know that im flying with people that know what to do, such as if i flew with some dudes from NASA, WPK, ESB that i know they are doing their best i would be the most polite person in the world, but that is not necessary, because if i am flying with good persons/pilots they already know what needs to be done, they know that in beacon hunt one must go to the other beacon before the timer of the current ends, thus eliminating the need to asses a problem to them. But when typing to other players become necessary it is usually because they are brain-dead pilots that sometimes doesnt even know how to read, and with those i noticed that yelling (CAPITAL LETTERS) and cursing work better, since noone tends to notice other things in chat, only when you poke their pride sometimes they do what is told and sometimes we manage to turn the tide and win. So, basically, with brain-dead pilot/zombies yelling and cursing seems to work slightly better.
Or you can squad up, it’s easier to turn the tide of the battle if you fight side by side with a trustworthy partner, or 2 of them.
Rarely had the oportunity to fly in a good 3-man or 4-man squad that everyone could pull their weight, but i’ve been fked by the MM sometimes with that equal squads in each side. On my side 4 dudes from a random corp all with 1000 or less in rating, against a 4-man wpk squad, or NASA squad, or some of those with some ESB in the middle. My point being, if 2 low skilled pilots squad up, it will only get worse for them with this wicked MM we have now.
In the end, you can always uninstall this and go play a single-player game, because in every MMO you’ll find good players, regular players and bad players.
More like an ocean of bad players, some algae of regulars and some pearls of good ones.
All in all, raging against the RNG is useless. Rage against the system then, but as SoldiersofFortune said, it is like beating a dead horse. I created another post on bug reports regarding the MM, but i dont see much future there too.
My advice, if you run into a bad luck streak, log out, wait 1 hour and come back, maybe things will be better. HEHHEHEHE It is what i do sometimes.
