What I'm talking about is the matchmaking. Tanks should only be matched with tanks one tier below or one tier above them. Hear me out. There are two sides to this.

 

The first one is obvious, when you get into a match at the bottom tier and either can't penetrate any of the higher tier tanks, you can't scout because their view range is superior, and you can't brawl because you'll simply get beat down. Now, obviously there are some tanks that usually don't have this problem and I would also like to add I normally don't have these problems when I'm bottom tier because I know how to find the right targets that I can penetrate and so on. However, there are still those tanks out there that can't do much hardly at all simply because they are mediocre tanks.

 

The other side to this is when you have a slow tank in bottom tier, such as the Valentine, and you spend the entire battle with cruise control on and do 0 damage because you can't even get to the front lines before your team annihilates the enemy. This actually happened to me twice in a row in my Valentine. In the first battle I actually managed to get 20 something cap points, but in the 2nd battle I didn't even make it to the cap before the battle was over. I have both replays saved for proof, not that I need it. I've had this happen in other tanks before, even tanks that aren't slow, and it's just as bad as a defeat because you still don't get any xp.

That would be the dream but server population is hindering that greatly. But can't blame people for not wanting to play with the last few patches.

want +1/-1? Get a pref MM tank. If you can't do that, don't bother.

(This is not an add but) Check Rita Gamers Status Report. I think there is something on there about +1/-1 mm but they are working on a giant rebalance update during summer.

Git Gud...

 

and, also... here is the word from WG concerning +/- 1 MM, found in the following Q&A session quotes;

 

Storm’s Q&A session, March 28, 2016:

– Skill MM will definitely not be introduced to random battles

 

April 11, 2016- Storm Q&A

– +/-1 MM will not be introduced, it would completely break the progression

 

Apr. 2016

– There are no plans for +/-1 MM (with the exception of lowest tiers), but if that ever happens, all vehicles will have to be completely rebalanced.

Battles already lack diversity and you would like to cut down 40% of the tanks you can see?

It would open the eyes of the vocal few that the current tier spread is a gift from heavens compared to what it used to be

It's fine, I don't want stupidly long que times. Also I didn't even mind trying to play my stug and getting completely wrecked by type 59 spam back when that was a thing.

If we had the server population it would be great. But there no way NA could handle it with pop.

MM does really makes tier 6-7-8 really [edited]to play because there a 1/3 (often more when the server pops low) that you'll be a food tank and need to spam gold to do anything. Corridor maps really don't help either.

Well maybe if they hurried up and fixed arty and made MM +1 -1 they wouldn't have that issue..
