Ever battle im in with my M2 medium, I get put into a tier 5 game where its impossible for me to shoot KVs and M4s etc. I thought this game was supposted to be easy to get to the next tank

Don't worry, it get's worse when you get to tier 4.

Yes worse.

 

If you play a LT, you're probably a scout, which... judging by your battles means you will be about as effective for your team as concrete is as a bandaid. 
If you're not in a LT, it's still worse, because you'll see tier 6s. If you think 3s seeing 5s cant be beat in terms of worseness, just wait until you're derping around in, say, an M3 Lee, and see an O-I. 

 

You will not doubt me then.

TBH, WG needs to make tier 4 and below 'pref' MM. They shouldn't be seeing 5s at 3 and 6s at 4. Tier 4 is actually regarded as the worst tier oftentimes because of this, with a few exceptions.

Yes, and I cant earn xp to get to the next tier because I cant pen crapeven with ACPR and always get one shot

It will get better for you, sub tier 5 is horrible. The power difference between tanks there is massive. Once you progress farther you will find the spread to be smaller (even though it remains the same +-2tier). Good luck!

KV1 doesn't see tier 7 battles,  1 reason  you have FAIL platoon someone with light tank , tier 5 arty or tier 6 tank...

Most likely MM had less tanks to pull from the lower tiers, placing you in higher ones.  

 

Match Maker is not really broken but it can only do so well depending on what players are playing.

KV-1's are a tier five tank, it sees tier seven battles.

Go where the mediums and lights hang out you will be able to do damage to them, or hang back until you can break through and hunt arty ... you going up against a KV-1 is suicide and the only useful thing you could do to them is track them.  There is a 2 two tier spread so you will have to get used to this it is part of the game.

Yeah, Dutch_81 had a good point.  If you are in a match you feel like you can not contribute much, pair up with tracks that can and try to support them.

the KV1 100% sees tier 7, how do you have 37k battles and not know this?

The tier 5 KV-1 does indeed see tier 7 battles.

 

How much did you pay for that account?

Yes it does, there is a +- 2 tier spread for that tank. You need to lay off the paint chips and read the wiki.

Tbh I think tier 3 is probably the worst tier in the game because of the difference between tier 3s and tier 5s and how often they get uptiered. Just get past it to tier 5 and it gets better.

Tier 3 is the worse IMHO for mm it gets it should never see anything above tier 4, I do realise however that saying it is like beating a dead horse :confused:

T1-4 are garbage for the most part. And no it's not easy to get to the next teir.

yup, although tier 3 is a problem.  MM only seems to schedule matches lower than tier 5 when it has to use tanks with preferred mm.  And since there are fewer of them....
