OK I don't know what is happening with the game as it stands at the moment and it seems there is no transparency so I can see why the current state of the game is the way it is. To provide some basic stats noting my grievance I was @ 1k games W/L ratio of 86% now @ 3.6k aprox games it has dropped to 50.8 and dropping. From what I can see and from others in my stream the game losing its player base and I'm reluctant to continue streaming it (Who wants to watch a player losing consistently?). I am presently struggling to get more than 1 win in 4 hours of game play. WG pls take note this is not a good player experience. It seems that my current losing streak (Going on 1 week now) is not uncommon as I have been informed by viewers of my stream. Where I used to attract new players to the game I now get responses like "Why would I want to play this game". 

So before you lose another person streaming your game resolve the issue that is being suffered by more than just myself.

Note to the haters: before you pew pew my post saying stuff like "GIT GUD, stop QQ ect ect", realise that these are the honest thoughts of a streamer that is on the point of moving to another game and promoting that instead.

I am afraid that I understand what you mean about the game losing its player base. In most of my games over the past couple of weeks, at least half of the "players" appear to be bots! So there is very little teamwork or coordination. You are really screwed if the other team has a couple of real players flying bombers and the corresponding bombers on your team are being flown by bots -- a simple comparison of the point scores at the end of the game is very telling. Real bombers score 6,000+ points, while the bot bombers score 2,000. It's real hard to win with that kind of difference.

 

It wasn't like then when I started playing -- what happened?

Hmm, more players on the verge of leaving, I don't blame ya. I've recently been starting to play other games with some old pals of mine (and some of my mates as well), the bleeding of the player base continues unfortunately. Though I'm still holding onto that little shard of happiness that is my Chinese aircraft lineup to keep me invested.

 

Still, for you to lose so many matches over such a long period of time... that's... strange. Usually there's always a match where (hopefully your own) bots go on a rampage tearing apart the enemy team and massively helping you out every so often, usually it takes considerably less than 4 hours (or a week if you genuinely haven't won for that large of a time period) for the stars to align with or against you in a situation like that. I don't want to sound like an arrogant [edited] but it might be worthwhile to flight up and improve upon your situational and strategic awareness, because you shouldn't be losing that much unless you keep on getting destroyed by other players.

 

Thus far it seems like, population is shrinking, meaning more boring matches.

More boring matches means people don't want to play.

People not wanting to play means population shrinks.

Repeat process.

 

Still, good luck on your ventures in streaming, I'll support your departure or residency either way, WoWp is a mess.


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

As far as I can tell my w/l has always been about the same, if anything it has gone up a bit lately. If you've gone from an 86% w/l to 50% then it's not the game.

 

 I also find it hilarious that not having an 86% win rate is such a horrible thing, who would want to play a game where you almost always win? If I was winning that often I doubt I'd have played the game for more than a week.

 

Stay away from WoT, even the best of the best players are in the 60% bracket.

Very simple. 

Because wining isn't determined by "you" the player, you achieved wins early on that you didn't deserve because of you lack of "experience and proficiency". 

It took me 2,000 battles in the old game to "click". 2,000 battles of getting shot down and carried by someone else before I was finally able to carry myself. 

The game's slogan used to be, "Easy to learn, hard to master." Which was admittedly to it's detriment.

Now game is still "easy to learn", however the "strategy" component of it is a bit quicker to grasp than the true knowledge of your own and your enemy's aircraft.  Therefore leading people to believe they are good at the game when in, they really aren't.

Take what I say with a grain of salt. I could be wrong and knowledge of aircraft could be totally irrelevant to the game as it stands.

Ahh Chilli, been watching your streams for awhile now and really enjoy them. The gameplay is secondary to why I watch, you seem a really good, decent guy in real life man.

 

couple things.....

Who wants to watch a player lose consistently? Are you kidding here? People, imo, are inherently negative and enjoy watching other people fail. People also enjoy watching others getting frustrated , raging, throwing headphones, etc. I don't really think that's your thing in stream however.

 

Why would I want to play this game? Play it for the fun of meeting other people that have stuck with this mess. Most of the old vets and alot of the new players ask themselves that question. From what I've seen, this community is mostly some really decent people. Took me awhile to get out of the clan vs clan thing where you are almost obligated to not like the players from other clans, but holy crap there are some really decent human beings playing this game.

 

GIT GUD. This made me laugh.....notice that no one thus far has said that to you? Yeah you have room for improvement, just like everyone else. I suck so bad in BnZ that I won't play them anymore unless I've got a wingman. Even then I'm a detriment to the team 50% of the time.

 

Kinda told you last night on your discord, take a break. Not a week off,  less days per week streaming planes. You've got a good following and I'm sure most would watch while you play a different game a few times a week.

 

Anyway, whatever you decide man, I'm with ya. Would continue watching your stuff, even if you started playing something else. Cheers.

If you want I could help you get a few entertaining games. I'm returning today from my vacation, just need to pass the jet lag and remember the controls
This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

Howdy!

 

As far as changes, there have not been any that would affect your gameplay in this manner. However, I will see if there is anything I missed and make sure our Devs are aware. In the meantime, you should keep posting your Streams here on the Forums and we will gladly check out your Stream. Keep on going with Flights and hopefully it was just a rough patch.

Thanks for your reply The streak has now extended to over 7 days y'day was my most positive day coming out with a 40% win rate for the day. It gave me hope but the games I have played today I see im back to a 15% win rate. In these games I constantly finish top 2 (Majority 1st).I know this game is very hard to carry a team in but a little more equality in the spreading out of the skill levels of both teams would be something I would love to see.

Again I appreciate the reply.
