So I have come to the conclusion that being top tier in this game is a complete hoax or myth, or at least not a possibility. Other than my tier 10, I have never once been top tier in any of my tanks since the new awesome 3 5 7 concept. When I play tier 8, I am always in a tier 10 battle. Yet, amazingly when I play my tier 10, I am only in tier 10 battles. Tier 1 through 3 will always battle only 1 tier higher. Yet tier 4 through 8 will always be in a 2 tier higher battle. This is what I term "tier rigging". This is how game is rigged so you are ALWAYS bottom tier and therefore are always in an uphill struggle. The only way to fix this once great game, is to base battles on player skill. Let all the "pro players" and "Unicums" fight only players of equal skill instead of seal clubbing us players that are not that good. But, alas, this will never happen. I mostly play tier 3 mediums now, for I will only battle tier 4 at the highest. I still will keep my tier 10 Object 140 with a crew that has 4 crew skills, but I dont play it too much, it's just there for show. I have some great premium tanks, HT No 6, Cromwell B, Thunderbolt II, Chi Nu Kai, T-34-85 Rudy, but all of those have poor guns or are weak in someway so I cannot do very well, but they are cheap to fix which is why I play them. Just thought I would share these few points with all of my fellow tankers. Have fun. CT.

I was top tier in my udes on himmelsdorf. I apologized to my team. I did find a spot near the castle and surprised myself but being top tier always seems to pop up when you end up with a team of sap suckers or on a map that doesn't match well with your vehicle type.

So when you were bottom tier, who was top tier?

No really. There's always someone at the top, do they not exist?

chances are that even when you are top tier you will lose the game for your team. Its better if you are not and just a place holder.

If you are always not top tier the system will make you top tier after a while. But they don't tell you the formula.

 

!. I believe it's based on you win rate.

2. The stats I have been keeping when the server is busy when I am playing tier 8 broke down to around 10% tier 8, 13% tier 9 and 77% tier 10.

OP it's about time you quit crying and actually do something. You can try to learn the game already or you can leave, no one cares for your tears. You've been told how to get better but you'll ignore it, 100% the reason why nobody wants to teach noobs, it's because of people like you.

Either you can leave or suck it up, god damn

Wargaming is truly concerned about our thoughts of how the game is going and I am sure they are working diligently on fixing the Tier VIII MM right now as we speak. Have a little patience, they want to make sure they get it fixed the right way. See y'all on the battlefield.

So for someone with over TWENTY SEVEN THOUSAND battles, if you were top tier, is it possible you could do more than your 328 average damage ???

 

Me thinks not.

for 3/5/7 format

20% are top tier, 33.3% are middle tier and 46.7% are bottom tier.

 

5/10

33.3% top tier, 66.6% bottom tier

 

its not a hoax thats just how it works... most the time you get bottom tier aside from the 1/10 game where you get all the same tier

Heh he just PM'ed me a couple of hours ago, thanking me for ruining the game for others by hacking / cheating. Apparently you need to resort to that to get 5 kills in a Lorraine.

How many games have you played since the new MM?

What tiers do you play?

 

I find your claim of never being top tier in any non-10s to be highly statistically unlikely.

Looking up your profile and checking our your last 5 created posts isn't a hard thing to do.

I have already answered you in one of those threads how to get better yet you are ignoring it and here you are still crying.
Quit your princess snowflake crap and get good at the game, otherwise the uninstall button is 100% free.

this new mm made me go back to world of warships.  The bottom mm scenarios are not fun at all especially when you do over 1,000 damage and the team has 3 or 4 0 damage players

This clown spends his time playing thousands of battles trying to prove his conspiracies and then feels that the game is singling him out by rigging him. Wow, what a way to live. You have got way too much time on your hands.
