    If I count all the times I've been ragequitted on as wins, I'm about 50/50 W/L

    If I don't count that, I'm like 45/55 W/L

    Just wondering if winning half the time, losing half the time is pretty regular, or if some of you out there are like 90/10 or something O_o

    Edit : Also, and I know this is generalizing but... I notice the Japanese players (Who I'm mostly put against) seem in general to be harder to beat than all the other ones.

    I almost let out a sigh of relief when I see a players name in actual ABC letters, because I know it won't be a brutal beatdown.

    Really pisses me off when I go on a massive losing streak, that just happened to me all night here, and of course.... every last one of them was Japanese & the last win I recall was against an english person.

    Damn higher average IQ countries! damn them to hell! I kind of wish they would allow an option to opt out of international play, a game is supposed to be fun but it's not fun when you lose 99% of the time (sometimes). Like I said, somehow it evens out to where I win about half the time overall, but grrrr when I go on mass losing streaks....

      Very POOR at the moment. Started battling a couple months ago, but took a break out of frustration. Tried getting back in to it the other day and am still having a rough time. I agree, the Japanese always put down a good beating.

      I have tried to start to play rated battles now, in hopes that once my rating is lowered, I will get people that more evenly match my skill level. That is not the case, and I am still getting matched with people 2-300 points above my level.

      I really like battling, but it seems so unregulated and just a mess at this point.

      Right now I'm roughly 5w/15l for the season, first time I tried I went 5/25. Don't know my free rating off the top of my head, but it's similarly placed at about 25% win.

        I dont play over wi-fi, but instead use a battlesimulator. I win about 3 for every one that I lose but that is including ragequits which happen quite often if I get set up.

        At the moment, my singles ratio is something like 10-90 w/l. Doubles is something like 70-30 but drops down to something like 20-80 against trick room. I hate trick room.

        I'm 7-1 overall atm, just started battling last week or something like that.

        As long as these struggles are aimless, we will all be standing still.

          If I count the ragequits as wins, then I'm like a 89% (rounded) win percentage. If I don't count them at all, it goes up to like 93% for some reason. I kept a detailed record of my fights, and it turns out that using chess-thinking makes people hate you :/
