So far from the data I have collected since the 9.18 change to MM, my tier 8 premiums are bottom tier 94% of the time. It does not matter how many or how few players are logged into the server and playing, it makes no difference. I have over 2,000 game worth of data and climbing. If my data is showing this, what is WoT's data showing? I would like for WoT to correct the MM rotation.

Wargaming doesn't care. You are clearly still playing your premiums and they are selling more. Kaching. F you.

Does it matter? premiums are meant to make money. You make more credits for doing damage to higher tier vehicles. You can also blame it on bonds, as more people play tier 10 more as it is incentivized. by bond farming.

 

think of it like this

- bottom tier match : you have max 3 tier 10's to deal with, 5 tier 9's, 7 tier 8's (optimal credits)

- mid tier match : 5 tier 9's 10 tier 8's, or 3 tier 9's 5 tier 8's 7 tier 7's (optimal enjoyment)

- top tier match : straight up unfair for tier 6's to go up against stuff like the patriot, levelroise, guard, chrysler gf etc... (you should feel ashamed if you enjoy this)

 

for me, I like tier 10 matches in my fv4202, I can just crest a ridge and spot, my turret bounced just about everything when it's sloped. Those are my best games with about 2k dmg and 5k spotting for 60k profit

If you got tier 8 matches all the time you will without a doubt make less than if you saw tier 10s.

You just make more money damaging tier 10 tanks than you would tanks at your own tier or even below that.

 

Would you rather make money from your tanks or sit and bully lower tiers? if you answer the 2nd option then you're buying the tanks for the wrong reason.

Personally, I'd rather see a proportionate amount of battles in every Tier, instead of a disproportionate amount being the lowest Tier in most matches. I do agree that Tier VIII's can be very strong against VI's, but that's the same could be said for for X's fighting VIII's all the time. To make matters even worse, you can get 80-90% of your Tier VIII's in Tier X matches, and then you drop in to a Tier VI where you're fighting Tier VIII's just as much. Basically, the overall balance is off, WarGaming knows it, and they simply don't care about their customers enough to fix it.

 

This whole scenario has led to a lot of players simply not playing Tier VIII's regularly, and thus not buying Tier VIII Premium tanks regularly. It's too bad, because there are tanks for sale that seemed far more useful last year than they do now - and I don't mean they're useless, just that Tier VIII anything just isn't as fun as it was before.

Tier 8 MM went to the crapper once WG decided that taking battle tier 12 out was good for the game.. and we know what WG thinking brings to the game.

For me personally I find tier 8 premiums work fine in the current matchmaking (specifically TDs and LTs are where the fun is at for me)

its fun if you do damage which only the older meta premiums seem to have a problem with but that is why they have pref mm. well at least most of them.. while even in the newer meta premiums they can bounce tier 10s a lot more often. Even some tier 6s have that advantage over tier 8s now.

Wait? What? you mean we are not supposed to bully the lower tiers and only pick on the 10"s....Blasphemy I saw. Burn him at the stake

If you ONLY want to bully lower tier tanks than again that's not the reason premium tanks exist..

Tier 8's are only in the game so the tier 10's can stat-pad.
