Tankers!

The World of Tanks development team is excited to announce that update 8.0 has been successfully released for the NA server on September 26, 2012.


7.4 and 7.5 saw a lot of reworking and re-balancing of individual tanks and tank tree's as well as the introduction of T10 TD's and Mediums.

This has been a progression towards implementing and providing you our players with what we believe is a much better and fairer Matchmaker.

The Match-Making as been reworked for the majority of vehicles and provides a tighter tier spread.
Now players won't normally see vehicles of more than two tiers difference to the tier of his/her own vehicle

Spoiler                     

Please continue to provide any feedback or suggestions on the matchmaker, into this thread.

Can you please modify the S-35 captured's matchmaking so it will no longer see tier 5 matches, like the 'preferred' matchmaking of the other premiums of its tier?

I must take my hat off to you guys at WG, you've done a very good job re-working the matchmaker engine. There are still some issues such as numbers of artillery though.............................

Other than that Ive got no complaints :Smile_Default:

I accidentally ended up in a Tier 9 battle in my KV-1S, as I was platooning with a VK3002(DB) and meant to select my KV-13.  Result?  Awesomeness!  I just played to my tank's strengths and make a significant impact on the game.  I like the new matchmaking, but there is nothing quite like the feeling of taking out a much higher tiered tank.

That being said, I feel like my little troll tank (mini-maus pz38H735(f)) is seeing way too many tier 3's . . . but that is probably on purpose, and they are still good battles.

Edit to add:  Now the Tier 2 TD's are OP in the battle tier instead of the mini-mice, but it is what it is.

Will the the Crusader from the British tree be allowed into Medium tank companies? I know that most are not allowed but this one is even allowed in tie 5 battles and I don't see it as being much of a stretch to allow it. it at least might add some variety to the tanks used in TC's

Is it really necessary to have the US: T2 LT (premium) get into tier 4 matches? It may be fast, but has a pew pew gun so damaging things is really hard :)

Everything is great except for the highest tier battles being full of 5+ arty per side. 1-3 arty per side is fine but after that it really slows down the gameplay.

+1

I own a S35 as well and i think, since it uses tha same gun and has even less HP and is one Tier lower, it should belong to the same MM as Pz B2. Pz B2 only see matches with enemies up to Tier 4.

I wondered why my Type 59 hadn't been seeing Tier 10s any more. Or has this been since 7.5 as well? Either way, thanks for the updates as usual Rampage!

That is a battle tier not a tank tier. There is a difference.
There was always 12 battle tiers.

Even though the chart says otherwise, i feel like the MM for the KV-5 and the SP have been nerfed slightly. I am rarely top tier anymore, and contantly get into battles with all tier 9 tanks against me.

The fact that the general tier spread is 2 since the change has made me very content with the MM. However there are still problems that are not tier related, like number of arty per side, or the infamous heavy vs. medium battle, and many others.

Still an outstanding issue: When is the Ram 2 going to get the same match making as the Churchill? It has the same gun ,less armour and a smaller HP pool than the Churchill, yet it sees tier 7 tanks whereas the Churchill only sees up to tier 6.

Need a 3 arty cap and/or a reduction of the tier spread for tier X from 3 to 2.  The low tiers tend to be okay, it's just in high tiers because the tier 8 population is so concentrated.
