You should learn from your mistakes.   Learn from the anomolies you see in backtester versus history.   Stop complaining about it!   Or just stop trading.  Trading is a great, great business when you work at it methodically.   And it has real risks.   Don't be a fool. 

Step 1 - design a robust search screen based on backtester and "trading common sense".   Don't expect fills on thinly traded stocks to equal the backtester.

Step 2 -  paper trade the robust search screen - offline or with a free paper trading account

Step 3 -  run the backtester for the time period of the paper trading - compare and analyze

Step 4 -  wait for the targeted search screen to under perform its longer term backtest average

Step 5 -  trade with real money starting during an under performance period if you have sound statistical confidence in your screen.
