Since artillery is now reduced to a non-threat, rare to see and inaccurate as hell when you do, many people are playing their tier 10s like they're Chihuahas in Beverly Hills.

I've never run into that issue solo-grinding. Where you platooned?

lowe has suffered a very serious power creep.  but it can still be a viable credit earner when played more in a sniper roll.

It's actually impossible for you to get a tier 10 match if you are Solo pubbing. You can not get tiered in anything higher than a nine match with how the tiering system works.
If you don't like 10 matches, stop tooning or have your mates use tier 7s. Or use tier 8 meds to lower the tier weight.

Learn the LOWE and T34, as both can and do get T10 matching. All other T8 premiums have sucky guns (low pen) and only see T9 matches.

Dude, the lowe does not get preferred mm. The gun is good enough to pen tier 10 so it can fight them, just like the fcm, and t34.

have all prizes level 8, and lowe with over 3000 battles and I can say that the lowe changed nothing remains the same maker credits, the only problem is its slowness with his well trained crew is great he has a cannon spectacular with a great accuracy not forget the lowe is not a tank fight is a snipe. :playing:

Despite having 212 pen, the FCM still gets preferred MM. Probably one of the more fun tier 8 premiums to play because of it.

It didn't get worse; everything else just got better.

Your understanding is incorrect. I play solo with my Lowe regularly and it is very common for me to be placed in a Tier X game.  Rather sucks for credit earning.

How you could go 13000 games without figuring out how MM works is beyond me.

First, Lowe sees tier 10 battles all the time, just like every other tier 8 that doesn't get preferential MM.

Second, the MM only takes the highest MM tier into account when dealing with platoons.

Third, there is no such thing as "tier weight". Tier 8 mediums see the exact same types of battles a tier 8 heavies.

I get stuck in tier 10 all the time, and also it seems to me it doesn't make the money it use to.

The lowe is victim of every other tank getting better. They are a rarity to see now a days, when they used to be scads of them.

Now they are not much more than slow targets.

That's the reason I no longer play mine. Constant tier 10 battles and if I'm lucky tier 9. RARE do I get an all tier 8 battle.

I asked for a refund already because of it. But they said no.

Lowe used to be a good, fun tank. That's why it is my most played tank.

I bought a Panther M10 and took the lowe crew out... Put them in there and redid the skills.

My lowe just sits stripped in the garage now.

Funny thing is, T34 is a better tank... I get alot of tier 8 battles. Even in a platoon.

So, your not alone.
