Attention Tankers!

 

There are plans to release Micropatch 0.9.18_2 on April 27th, 2017

 

Maintenance will begin at 03:30 PT (10:30 UTC) and will last approximately one hour.

 

During maintenance, the World of Tanks servers will be unavailable.

 

Patch notes:

 

The matchmaking mechanics were adjusted as follows:

  • The top tier of three-tier battles will comprise the same number of tank destroyers, SPGs, and light tanks (of both Platoon and solo players) in both teams. For each of these vehicle types, the number of vehicles will be the same in both teams (i.e. they will be treated separately).
  • In addition, the top tier will comprise the same aggregate number of medium and heavy tanks in both teams, but these vehicle types will not be treated separately.
  • The top tier of three-tier battles can have only one SPG.

Too bad. I liked the wierd matches. One arty and two heavies against one light and two mediums was challenging.

Nice going, WG. Almost there on heavy and med balance, but good changes nonetheless.

Please add a change to Tanks without crews (Tanks without crews will now be visible)

Good stuff. While there's going to be less variation in battles now (this can be both good and bad), it'll be nice not seeing all three top tiers be arty.

I have quitted playing this game since last September because of unbalanced MM.  I was so disappointed to the point that nothing was good enough after that could bring me back to this game.  I will try to play again to see if it is improved.  I wish WG would balance the players's skills in both teams as well (It is one of the most important things to make the MM more fair)

Ah yes...very much needed.  I've seen 3 top tier arty vs 3 top tier arty...something that the developers specifically said was something you didn't want.  I've also been in a tier 10 LT with no opposing tier 10 LT but tier 10 HTs.  That hurts.

 

It does bring into view that when i run my Rhm Pzw I'm going to have longer queue times though.  I guess we will see.

Finally...WG listens. Because having to face 2-E75s when your top tier has 2 spgs was crap

I am confused by the legal/IT speak here. So we can only have one SPG per team now?

no... In a 3 tier match, and the top tier is 9, you can only have 1 T9 arty. You'll still be able to have 2 other arties in your lower tiers on your team.

you still get a max of 3 SPGs non platooned in your games. SPGs won't be top tier against heavies anymore. This should also iron out 1 team getting 6-8 heavies while 1 teams gets 1-3 heavies.

Other than needing to balance teams with regard to player skill, MM is really improving. Good work, devs.
