Win 4 in a row, lose 4 in a row

SDS

This seems to be how my RS has played out all year long. I'm currently on a 5-game winning streak but know the fall back down to the 500s probably starts tonight. Anyone else seem to ride the rollercoaster like this? I'm very much average (20 games over .500) but really don't feel like my performance changes much from game to game but these wild swings still happen.

I'm there with you.. almost exactly the same.. I was 45-50 games over 500.. my record is not great, but played a lot..

This season i'm sitting 3 games over 500.. in 60 games or so.. I'll win 3.. lose 5 or so.. Highest i got this season is about 700.. back down to 570.. just can't get it together.. a lot of changing the line up because of this that may be the issue, but trying to find the right balance.. .I'm going to cut down on the games played, and focus more on finishing up the FOTF, getting ready for the chase... but it sucks man..

Play less. Whether you believe it or not, your play will deteriorate the longer you play. This is do to a number of factors ranging from muscle fatigue, mental fatigue, visual fatigue and a number of other factors which you cant physically feel going on. Limit your time playing ranked seasons to one or two games per sitting and then go do something else within the game whether it be events or showdown or just plain stat grind offline. It will also limit the amount of trolls that you will have to endure playing RS. Also the longer you play the more likelihood that you’ll be matched up with someone that is clearly superior to your level of play. And one last thing. I definitely hang it up when I lose. Your mood definitely plays into the quality of your gameplay. Hope this helps.

It really does. I love playing RS, I really do. I think it's a blast and haven't experienced all the problems a lot of people have on a consistent basis, but I just can't avoid these streaks. Of course it's fun when winning but there's not much worse than a 4-game skid where your ranking drops 150 points lol. One thing I've tried to do is keep my lineup consistent through the losing because I know it will eventually stop and it helps me get better with their swings when the Ws come back.

Preciate it! That all makes sense. I typically play a game or two a night and that's been a good balance for me whether I'm on a winning streak or a losing streak. And I can definitely tell when I'm matched up with a superior opponent. Those games are over in a hurry lol. It's amazing how some guys literally punish even the tiniest mistake over and over again.
