So lately once I see that matchmaker has decided the battle from the start, and things go predictably badly, I get pissed off and rage quit. 

 

This is not something I do in the other WG games because it's at least theoretically possible to turn bad situations around, but this game wins & loses seem so preordained that I have been allowing myself to succumb to my anger and quit mid battle. But I still kinda feel bad about it.

 

This latest battle had me as the only human tier 8 against a flight of guys in tier 8 premiums, my two teammates were in undertiered attack planes (which has never gone well for me). I know the enemy human RB-17 is going for the MPlant so I rush there, cant hit him enough with my "sniper" cannons on my Ta 152, and he kills me. I go back for revenge and kill him, but his buddy in a P-80A swats me out. By this time they have air superiority and I quit, leaving my hapless attack planes to ride out the loss. 

 

How big of a c**t am I for leaving them and can I / should I stop doing this?

The MM dealt you a bad hand.  You had the wrong plane for this battle - you needed to have a heavy fighter at T8 to get the job done, or at least a flightmate to cover your tail.  It happens, sometimes.  No, you're not being c**t for quitting, but you are one for leaving your human team mates in a bind.  You could have helped them out by covering their tails, even in a loss.  At least you did what you could, and built some goodwill with other players.

I think you should do what you want in this game.  But I will say that I very often am in a battle that is going hopelessly wrong to begin with that suddenly turns completely around.

If you care about your teammates or the community, stay in the match and try to turn it around.

So you're posting on the public forums about how you break the game rules - leaving is technically ban-able.

These two things, right here.

 

It would be easy to find the difference between a drop-to-hangar request and a disconnect.  A drop-to-hangar requires a key press and a mouse click in the client.  If those two things happen, 24-hour ban.  If they happen more than 4 times, a one-week ban.  If it happens more than ten times, sorry, Charlie - this account is done.

 

I am almost positive this would require less than ten lines of code.  I guess displaying your rage-quitting might require a display modification and an e-mail notification, and that would take more lines.

If you finish a match you still get 1000 points, win lose or draw.

 

It was not match maker that decided the loss it was you and playing the match all wrong.

If you played the way you described then it was a loss from the beginning.

 

However you are new and still are not sure how to play the matches to a win.

 

Your first mistake was using the TAB key and allowing it to dictate how you played your battle

Personally, I never use the tab key, it only has negative influence on the match,

 

This game is about superiority not who and how many you kill.

Take out the ADA and capture sectors, let your bots do the rest of the work for you.

 

Yes you will have some guaranteed losses but you will win more than you lose.

 

Try a different play style:

Stop TABBING

Go for ADA and capturing sectors

read after battle report.

well, in other WG title's quitting early is a punishable act. quit enough time get auto banned. in this game with the small player base your only hurting your few other teammates.

 

i thing the reason they don't have a auto ban system in place is:

 

*edited*

 

don't quit out of battles find way of farming personal points to or try and out cap the enemy. as Cap U.P. said; games can turn around, sometime the bots activate and flip 3 caps in an instant and if you can find a way to capitalize on that, you can turn the match around.

Answer is C.The number of disconnects pre and post flight was absolutely horrific.Throw in the queue bug along with the ground and mountain spawn crashes and it turns into a real head scratcher as to why to even try playing at all.If they shelled out $25k in currency for each of those programming failures I imagine there would be some incentive to work on something other than new finding ways to ding people for game currency or cash!

One of the reasons why I rage quit tanks, more than 3 years ago.

Was because people could not understand  that if you defend the capture point

You could win by superiority. Too many players would capture then run off and try to kill the enemy.

Giving up the win.

 

Stopped playing Ships for the same reason. People would run around killing stuff instead of

concentrating on capturing and staying alive.

 

I played PLANES because it was about KILLING and being the last man standing.

There was a chance to win by superiority but it was difficult. It was about domination.

 

Then 2.o comes along and WG changes to a superiority model of winning matches by adding Re-spawn.

If it was not for my FUN of flying games, flight model, shooting stuff. I would quit this game again.

I can put up with the re-spawn, lack of " last human left " just to play airplanes.

The promise of a PvP mode keeps me coming back to play " stupid superiority " matches for training purposes.

 

Did not take long to learn how to win matches in planes and the superiority model.

I consider the pre-game TAB to be essential.  How many humans?  what are they flying?  WHO are the humans?  That is VERY valuable intel to plan your strategy around.  It's the only way to get better at the meta.  "Kill ADA and capture sectors" is the basics of "not sucking", I will agree, but to disregard pregame intel limits your ability to improve beyond that level.

The answers to your questions are MASSIVE and YES.  

 

Please let me know if you need additional clarification. 


"Don't mess with me because I can squish you like a bug, that is If I should decide to notice your existence in the first place".  

 

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.
