There is a middle ground: start your own team, leave the slots open for randoms to be inserted, and set it so they have to have T8s. Anybody says they can only bring a 5, say "sorry bye" and boot them.
Sure, I know what it takes to MAKE it work, but that does nothing to address the total suckiness in dealing with auto search. You are not using the auto search function yourself. You are only offering work arounds that do nothing to address why auto search mode sucks. Until people get a clue and start avoiding this mode, and leaving it to the tier8s, auto search will continue to suck.
So what will make this mode work? remove a whole lot of players who don't know how it works (i.e. severely limit participation). Or remove auto search mode for everything but tier 8 tanks (i.e. severely limit variety).
I am not complaining that I can't get good teams together. I just go with my clan mates if that's all I wanted. I wanted to see what the entire game mode experience was like from ALL PERSPECTIVES. All you have demonstrated with your solutions is confirmed just how limited this new game mode is in scope and variety.
