Anyone Else Tired of Losing?

So I've been playing Warzone for over 3 hours now and I have no idea how many games I've got in, but all I know is I've only had 1 victory. What's going on here? I'm a good guy and I do my part. I give it my all, have a pretty good K/D, and TRY to control the map. I even try the old "use a mic to communicate with teammates that don't listen" trick but nothing will help my chances of winning at all. Focused, Balanced, Expanded settings didn't matter either.

Yeah a working with a Spartan Company MIGHT help but I'd rather get right into the game and play what I want when I want. To me it makes sense that the chance of me getting randomly put on the winning team is 50/50. This is apparent at all. This has happened on several play sessions.

So really is there something else I don't know about? Is my rep bad? Is there someway to appease the gods of fate? Or statistically speaking: Is this just normal?
Its probably either your teams sucking or they don't go for "objectives"

True. I just don't know why I'm put on the sucking team every single time. Sure it's okay to lose some, but it's no fun to lose them all. Kinda hard to get REQ packs that way.
One problem I have with this game, which is rather discouraging, is that solo queing players usually get forced into a team of all solo players, vs. A full fireteam of friends and clan mates. So basically, if you solo que, it's slaughter time for you. Yah!
Have you tried winning? :P
Usually solo queue games in warzone have 4ish players carrying the load per team. Everyone else is chasing commendations, messing around or just not very good at the game. Every so often you get a good game, but usually it's what I described earlier, one team of randoms getting curb stomped by another or a tryhard in social modes spartan company curb stomping randoms.

My advice, don't worry too much about warzone wins/losses. If you cannot bring yourself to do this join a tryhard spartan company to curb stomp randoms.
My warzone stats are way worse than Arena. I'm at about 35% win rate for warzone, compared to 50 odd (as expected) for Arena.
I don't think there's any behind the scenes CSR stuff going on behind Warzone (to try to make both teams evenly skilled overall) but there really should be.

No because I still have fun playing the game.
Yea.

Personally though this game is way to competitive for me, though I've played days of it I finally have come to the conclusion that I'm just not having fun with it anymore.

That's just me though, everyone has there own feelings on how they feel about the game.
You can try..... getting good... hahaha yeah I went there.... just kidding... I make it a point to pretty much just go after bosses in warzone. It is the best way to help your team win. Especially the 150 point bosses. Knowing what req to spawn when for the best chance to get the kill of the boss. This can be infuriating when the other team gets them but super sweet when you get it. I know I have won quite a few games for my team by taking bosses.

343 recently tweaked matchmaking to increase team vs. team matching, and also added adjustments to balance solo player teams more evenly. The better player you are, the lower skilled teammates you get matched up with to offset your team's balance.

That actually explains a lot.

Sometimes it's true but who knows what they have in their algorithms.
It's pretty hard to make it as a solo player in this game unless you're really really good. I do well in most games I play, wz and arena, but because I don't run with a team much, increasing my rank to the level I actually play at is all but impossible. In warzone I can go 35-7 and get 2-3 boss kills but if they have team work and get the big bosses be cause of it, you don't stand a chance.
It's streaky. A w/l ratio of about 50% is common, when you lone wolf it.

You don't play WZ for wins or losses, or a good K/D—you play WZ to earn high XP (especially with REQ boosts).

I'm in it to collect armor, assasinations and Certifications. Which I need REQ points to get. Which is much easier to do if you win games.
just cant get any strategy going......??
