You forgot to add that there are no hidden algorithms to skew the game when they are activated

 

You are right, my bad. 

There are no hidden algorithms to skew the game when they are activated. :)

Well boohoo.    I just love a great conspiracy theory
 
BF, you could have let us twist in the wind for a couple more days.       Let us get really get a head of steam up about this
 
algorithms are the new coronavirus.     They're everywhere and make us do things that we wouldn't do, if our wives were watching

Same here.

 

"it was CONFIRMATION BIAS all along!"


An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

Booster curse is one of those things that doesn't exist but happens a lot.
C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

Blindfold didn't say there weren't any algorithms, just no "hidden" algorithms.  Vive la Conspiracy!  Related note- after one of my posts got removed from this thread yesterday I had another awful day of flying with some bad losses.  Someone in WG headquarters turned my personal difficulty knob up as punishment :trollface:

Yeah.

Since I have, literally, hundreds and hundreds of the things, I should burn a few some afternoon and keep track.

The other night I played my Tornado and was bottom tier 9 out of 11 battles.  When I got tired of being bottom tier in a MRF, I decided to play T7.

Immediately dumped into a T8 battle, of course.  *sigh*

Actually if you want a real test of theory here is what you do.

Open gaming center and run the repair integrity check.

Open game with the clear cache play button.

Choose only 1 plane that you will commit to 100 battles.

VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT SWITCH PLANES

Click the booster you want to use

Click battle

rinse and repeat until booster ends

Do not fly any battles with out the booster < VERY IMPORTANT >

Make sure you have enough boosters to run through 100 battles

OK i did not fully test the theory because i do not have the time. 

 

I did run a 2 hour crew XP booster with the Tornado and Millie Vanillie pilot. 

After reviewing the battle list : 

10 battles with a 50% win rate

8 top tier and 2 bottom tier. 

2 of those were top tier versus flights resulted in 1 win -1 loss
