PvP 6 times in a row

General Discussion
Please, Blizzard... do something
Nerf protoss and zerg. Buff terran problem solved.
You don't like PvP? Play Terran or Zerg. Seriously, that's the only way to avoid it.
There's only 3 races, what do you expect?
They can't. Fortunately for you, you can improve at the match up to the point where you have a huge win percentage.
not much Blizzard can do about it.......

but I feel the OPs pain....

it's not about winning or losing, IMO, it's just that PvP is about as much fun as a kick in the teeth

This is why America is in the current state that it's in.


But...america is made up of multiple states?
There's a 0.1% chance that you'd end up with PvP 6 times in a row. You've played 2700 games.
Protoss should be nerfed.
Protoss players are nerds.

>_>
<_<

In fact, let's nerf the protoss nerds on the forums so we can get more zerg nerds.
Just maybe introduce some kind of variable to increase chances of playing other races if you've played the same more than a few times in a row? I don't think anyone likes mirrors.. PvP is the worst imo, but I might be biased.

I don't much enjoy collosus wars: THE GAME
Blizzard has already done something...

They gave you PvP 6 times in a row.

Did you use those numbers to make a point or do you actually believe that?

Honestly though, I would love to be there the day someone shuffles a deck of cards...into order

Because people feel entitled to have someone else fix their problems?

Boy, Pause, that sure doesn't sound familiar...

No...exactly true. Depends entirely on who's searching at the time he is within his MMR range.

This is a fallacy, because you are misunderstanding the random chance and odds.

Each game is played on its merits, by itself. The opponent's race of your previous game has absolutely no bearing on your opponent's race in the next game.

In each game, you have a 33.3% chance of getting a certain race, assuming equal numbers of players from all races in your MMR range are searching at the same time. In the next game, those odds don't change. It's still a 33.3% chance. Your chances of playing a certain race in the next game don't somehow diminish based on your previous game.

To say "There's a 0.1% chance that you'd end up with PvP 6 times in a row." is false, regardless of whether that 0.1% number is accurate or not. What is correct is "if you play 6 games in a row you'll have a 33.3% chance of a PvP in each game".
blizzard can't push your "find match" button again for you

For any given 6 games to be matched against protoss is a 0.1% chance-- 0.333^6= ~0.0013. Expected value of that over 2700 games is that it'll happen about 3 times.

Please, Blizzard... do something

"I, one of tens of thousands of players on battlenet, got randomly matched with people playing the same race 6 times in a row! Change your whole system because of that statistically insignificant event! DO SOMETHING!"

I'm amazed the developers respond as much as they do, honestly. So much herping and derping from people on this forum.
dont worry once u hit master it will be PvZ 6 times in a row
or play on korean server, i heard protoss is least played in korea
