Been playing for some time now and the MM has become even worse. Been tracking my games for a while now and the numbers are VERY shocking.

 

Below is a breakdown of my games so far today. As you can see tier 8 only 1 game top tier, with 12 games bottom tier. I have written to wargaming numerous times and now get a repeating string of cut and paste emails. The game is so broken and they know it, they have form emails to send out about why you keep ending up bottom tier. Two of them yesterday kept droning on about in game tactics, which has nothing to do with your tier ranking when starting a game.

 

I'll be posting more of these crazy tier breakdowns in coming days.

 

Stop paying Wargaming money, force them to fix the issue!

Here is my breakdown from yesterday:

 

Bottom tier nearly half of my games with 5 out of 6 in tier 8.

 

The game is broken and they will only fix it when we make them.

 

Stop giving Wargaming money!!!!

Maths don't lie and therefore in a 3/5/7 MM, YOU WILL BE BOTTOM more than you will be top....Nothing is broken.

Well there is like 7 tanks your own tier to shoot at..... 5 Tanks that you have a decent chance to take out. And 3 top tier tanks to avoid..... Bottom tier is really not that bad. Most of my best games are in bottom tiers.

But at the same time, despite being bottom tier you're not longer sole bottom tier, and you're absolutely guaranteed a minimum of 7 of your own tier each battle.

 

A serious improvement over the old MM.

I bought the silly Lazo's M4 today cuz I can use it as my 4th Russian crew trainer in Strongholds play.

 

So, too late not to spend that money.

 

Prolly will buy something else in a few days.  Sorry ahead of time for that.

Yes the new MM is definitely flawed and worse than the old MM

Even when you are low tier, you are not to run in front of high tier. You can perfectly fight half of the enemy team, have a fair chance against other quarter, and be helpful to defeat the last quarter.

 

If you need to be top tier more often, YOU are doing it WRONG

The players CAUSED the issue.  Every time they add rules to the MM it has an unintended side effect.  When the MM just dumped a bunch of tanks into a match (as originally designed) it gave better, FAIRER results over the course of a play session.  YES, there were some whoppers out there (I was in a match once with 7 arty on the red team while we had 5 arty and two mediums) but trying to balance Superheavies, mediums, 3 top tier, 5 middle and 7 bottom tier while capping the number of artillery and balancing the numbers of TDs and whatnot just breaks the system with our population.  

 

What some players don't understand or like is that the random MM is balanced by random factors over time.  Any particular battle can and usually will be somewhat unbalanced which gives a greater variety of challenges (heavies against mediums, underdog or favored, open map or city, arty or no, TD's or light tanks) which keeps the game fresh.  Many players want a balanced match every time, as opposed to over a number of games.  But the more WG tweaks the MM the farther from that result we seem to get.

 

I preferred the original MM, I had a better chance of being top tier even though I hated being the only tier 6 on my team in a tier 8 battle.

You do realize that when there are more players playing lower tier for the spread you have selected it is impossible to be chosen for top tier at an even rate as you will be selected for a middle or lower tier in your match right?

The MM and your position is all based on who is playing what tier when you are and how many there are.

They are not "scamming" you!

This is how it works (as flawed as many may view it or not)

The IFERROR function in Excel is super easy to use and will improve the appearance of your spreadsheets. You should try it.
