Yep.  WOT is dead.  Its down to 5500 players today versus when I stared it never dropped below 30000.  WOT does not care.  They will never fix the MM problem.  I have written ticket after ticket and all they keep telling me is to read the camo skills better, read where to shoot better, read what ammo to use better.

Matchmaker is horribly broken right now. Horribly. Blow-out after blow-out.

No one who has played lately can argue that MM needs help.  The large influx of inexperienced players in tier 8-10 tanks throw a curve to MM.  Pretty much win rate is now unpredictable, and regardless of your skill ( u too trolls), you most likely cannot carry when heavies snipe and lights do not scout.  Perhaps PR or even WIN 8 might be a better statistic to use in MM?  At least you have some influence over PR and WIN 8.  Just a thought.

I'm still trying to figure out how people who want MM based on skill or whatever skill metric you want to use...don't understand that it will be the very definition of "rigged" MM?   You will see 1000x's more "game is rigged" complaints than you do now...because the game will be rigged. 

 

"Oh, I quit they got the 2600 rated player and we got the 2k rated player"

"Game is rigged, they got the 3k player and we got the 2.3k player"

"Game is rigged they got the 'whatever' and we didn't"

 

The MM needs to be balanced on tank types so one team isn't flooded with high alpha high armored TD's and heavies while the enemy is lights and mediums.  Then it needs to go Fog of War so you don't even see player ratings or names but only tanks in the enemy lineup.  Take the entire notion of "they got the better team" out of it by not even showing things like that.  

 

I, personally, do not want to be cherry picked and hand placed on any team.  I want a random chance.  Sometimes my team will be better, sometimes it wont be...but I'll remain the one constant and my skill (or lack there of) will be the difference maker over the long run.

 

Fog of War would be the best thing introduced in this game in a long time imo.  Not like this thread is actually doing anything anyway.

There is nothing wrong with and has never been anything wrong with match making. The only problem with game is the other MM (MAP MAKING) better maps slow lower their tanks opportunity to truly flank and pen were the can backs and sides. This is the main and only problem wit game. WG tends to make maps where u funnel down a path  or corridor forcing you to try and pen front armor.

WoT got so many inexperienced players into a Tier 8 tanks because of frontline.

You have guys in battle that dont how to jerk it let alone battle and when your MM is 5-10 or the wonderful 3-5-7 it get frustrating fighting with guys who should be at tier 3,4,and 5 learning instead of screwing up a game.

I thought the match maker was working better before the 3 5 7.  Mainly because my tier 8s weren't stuck on bottom tier most of the time.  I suspect tier 5 and 6 suffered the same fate.  Just adjust it so you see more top and middle tier.  Dats it.

Match making has never been the problem with this  game as i stated be for. The one and only problem with this game is the other MM MAP MAKING. Better map is only thing needed in this game ones that you can actually FLANK on and not just funnel down a corridor or lemming up some hill. Better maps gives everyone playing a chance to be part of the larger fight and go to anywhere on the map. Lower tier tank can get better positions on higher tier tank and get penetrating shots from rears and sides. But no..... WOT's map making standards are just garbage. SAME OLE maps just different weathers and backgrounds. for example EL HALUFF, WESTFIELD, and PROVINCE are just basic clones of each other. you can only really effectively play the map edges and venture into the center of map just makes you cannon fodder. Any Map were when its played 80% of all players on the map end up in 1 general area its a terrible maps. Seriously whats the rest of the map for? Any map where its expected that only heavy's can go in certain spots and lites go in this spot  once again its a terrible map.

 

So stop complaining about MATCH MAKING and start DEMANDING BETTER MAPS.

Wargaming does not believe in listening to its players.  they will never do PR or anything remotely close to skill level matchmaking because it would put everybody into three classes:  1) great players which would be less than 10% and it would take 20 minutes to get into a battle, 2) poor players same as one, and everybody else.  In addition, it would mean the loser developers at wargaming would have to admit they have made a mistake for the last several years.... Go ahead and ban me from commenting.... im only telling the truth about wargaming, they dont listen.....

 

It appears you only like to send pm's with insults to people and then add them to ignore...so tell us more about who doesn't listen?  

 

Yup, this little tike here insults and attacks those who have a differing opinion then they do and when you try to talk to them about it...bam (big surprise) you're added to ignore.  Typical little kid.  It was good for a laugh though.
