Till they use a player's stats for MM things wont change much .. The new MM setup will be the first step in trying to balance but if you have a platoon of very good wn8 players vs a average wn8  its a mismatch... This mismatch can run through the whole team where you have 10 players below 50% on 1 team but only 5 below on other...

Thanks to the horrible MM of mostly TD battles or Mediums against heavies, it is getting easier and easier to find other games to play or other things to do, instead of playing WOT.

Well the problem here isn't MM, its the fact that we have to have what is 5 or 6 IS-6 clones.  When I started playing tier III and IV was were all the bad players lived.  Mostly because it took more work to progress.  The game got too expensive to advance much beyond that point for the bad players.  Now thanks proliferation of premium tanks, the red tide has begun taking over tier VIII battles. But now WG makes it easy to get to the higher tiers, just send WG money and you can move you up quickly.  WG doesnt appear to care about game play, its all about lining their pockets these days.   Its no wonder that players are leaving the game in droves.

why would wot use win8 when win8 is a third party stat that they had no hand in creating?  and since that is the case what skill rating would you propose using?

​this is the first time they have actually given a timeframe and actual details instead of being vague.   tbh at first I was skeptical but to spend money just to be dishonest doesn't make sense does it?

The only fixing MM needed was balancing the tank classes on each team, I could really care less about the tier spread.

We are experiencing across the game and in all servers MMRage. It is easy to define. A game where you can be in match you cannot possibly/reasonably win.

Technicality and sophistry aside I'd  welcome a  fix or a return to a simpler game without so many variables  i.e imaginary tanks, need to cheat and Voodoo physics.

Look at the really bad stompings and you'll very often see the winning side having the best 4-5 players in the battle and the losing side having the worst 3-4 players.   That's skewing the two sides about 60%.      It would be normal statistically to have stompings without WoT causing those, but the frequency of the WoT caused ones isn't what anyone would call normally occurring.

I didn't get to watch the entire stream.  When did they say the new update would be released?

Balancing classes would certainly help, but tier spread would be nice to address too.  I just got blasted out of a battle where, out of 30 tanks on the map, only 2 were Tier IV, the rest V, VI and VII.  Yes, I was one of the tier IV's and quickly came up against a Tier VII, which just ran over me and I didn't even knock the dirt off his tracks.  I would like to see no more than 2 tier separation and ideally 1 either way.  Since the mid tiers have such drastic improvements with each tier, the spread easily becomes an issue.  Tier VIII, IX and X, not so much, but from a Tier IV to a Tier VII, absolutely.

Sorry you will have to wait until War Shaming has stopped producing and selling PREMIUM TANKS

Things like BALANCE , NEW MAPS , MATCH MAKER have taken a BACKSEAT to the CASH COW MONEY GENERATING SYSTEM THEY HAVE IN PLACE

Essentially, if it doesn't generate Revenue for War Shaming they have little motivation to fix it or do something about it!
