Is it possible to get a list of tanks with Preferential Matchmaking?  And if so, what does Preferential Matchmaking mean in WOT?

 

In Blitz, we have 2 tanks (total) that have PM, and they are both Tier 4 tanks: 

 

1) Valentine II

2) PzB2

 

Which means you never see Tier 5 with them if you're solo or platooned with another Val II or PzB2. 


Thank you.

I don't think there is an official list with it but instead of having a +2 spread they get +1 (and in rare cases i think one or two even got a +0, i don't quite remember if that's correct though..)

Just in case anyone didn't know already, all tier 3 vehicles now have pref mm and are +1 only.... or you can look at it another way in that there are no tier 3's with pref mm :)

Also all of those tier 4 LTs are no longer preferential as there's no more scout MM and they are listed because they didn't get scout MM in the past.  Additionally the Crusader at tier 5 is the same deal...that's regular MM...and it's a MT now and no longer  LT.

Questionable use of fonts.

Pointless thread necro.


 

-1


 


 

Yes, ultimately that tank will see T-X.

Excellent deduction.

Tank class.


 

Blue=Light tank

Orange=Medium tank

Purple=Heavy tank

Green=TD


 

Crusader is misclassified. Perhaps it used to be a light before my time?

Correct.

Its an older chart. Still largely relevant.

As previously noted T-III also no longer sees T-IV so all T-III vehicles are now PMM by default.

Just to make sure I understand the chart, it seems like all the tanks Tier 5 and above won't see +2 but also never see -1 or -2. Is never being top-tier "preferential" to never being -2 in terms of power balance?

That isn't quite right. A Tier V tank such as the T14 will see tiers IV, V and VI. A Valentine II will see tiers III and IV enemies, not just Tier IV. Think of the coloured boxes as the possible top tiers you can see.


 

Grrimshok, it's mostly accurate, with a couple of things outdated. For example, the Pz V/IV is now a Tier V tank rather than Tier VI, and the Crusader is now a medium tank rather than a light tank. Still, it's a pretty useful guide.

The chart is awesome.  In case anyone needs a definition: Preferential = a max of 1 tier higher instead of normal 2.  Super Pref = +0 

So a normal Tier 4 sees up to Tier 6

A Pref 4 sees up to tier 5

A Super Pref 4 sees up to tier 4

So the Valentine II as an example will always be the top tier in its battles.
