That's it, fix the damn matchmaker. This game no longer has the appeal it once did. Just stop with the gimmicks and put your effort into making a matchmaker that actually works. Constant games of steamrolling is just no fun and makes the game unappealing. Fix it or lose yet another long time player, this game is no longer fun to play. Or, maybe you have a special membership where one pays to get on the decent teams?

I've never heard it put quite like that before. 

Welp, I'm a believer now

These people talk as if steamrolls happen all the time. No matter what they do with the matchmaker, steamrolls will always happen. ALWAYS. You'll just have to get over it.

MM isnt in charge of how a battle unfolds.  

 

Team 1 takes guns off the battlefield by focus firing, Team 2 spreads the damage by not focus firing..  Team 1 wins in a landslide.   MM cant fix tactics.  MM cant fix the steamroll effect once a team gets up by a few guns.  Thats how most steamrolls happen.  Its all about gun removal from the battlefield.

 

MM however does insure that the tanks are more or less evenly matched in total value.   No one side wont have the same number of a type that the other side has.  But, the totals will be close to the same in value.  It has its flaws.  It doesnt take into account the difference between a stock tank and an upgraded one.  Doesnt take into account any equipment mounted.  And, the obligatory, doesnt take into account skill of the players.

They should limit TDs to like 3 per team and Arty to 1 per team.

It's not a matchmaking issue. It's just an element of the game. I hate those matches as well but they're going to happen.

So... You're asking for actual pay to win?

 

Let's say you have this type of system, you get put on the "winning" team, and your whole team believes they will win regardless of what they do. Of course, you can't just hand them the win, they still have to earn it, right? Right? Seriously, this is what happens now! I've seen 95% chance to win matches fold in 3 minutes because the team just believes they have already won and do stupid stuff - or nothing at all.

 

All you can do is play to the best of your ability and win when your whole team plays accordingly - or at least better than the opposition. To ask for anything else is, in fact, rigging, because you would be asking to be gifted a win while not performing to your abilities.

MM is working as intended to support their dam scam.  The last 3 weeks had been pure [edited]and if WG knows what's good for them they will stop the harassment and clean this scam up befor things get out of hand.  Their time is running out.

Its called playing intelligently, being patient, and to quote Arnold Swartzeneggar "STOP WHINING!"

 

Those 3 things help hone your gameplay to the point where you can maximize each loss or have an actual influence on the outcome of the match.

Your post implies that you think steamrolls used to be less common, which is not true. It sounds like you're forgetting that the game has always been the game and are imagining that things used to be different.

Based on my statistics (which I can document) over the last 14 months about 24% of the games are wipeouts (win or loss by 15-5 or less) if you break it down by months some months have been as high as 33%, if you break it down by days, the worst is 52% out of 33 battles...so something is not right.

Nope, not broke at all.

4/2 or 5/2 would probably be a good first step.  Like the idea, but even at 4/2 things would feel better and probably have a lot less impact on queues.  I don't usually even notice bad feels in games with tank compositions until it hits 3 arty or over a third tds.

 

Only other thing I'd like to see is the game preference 5/10, 15, 3/5/7 in that order.

If MM is so broken, then come up with a solution for it and share it with us instead of saying you lose battles 15-X?

I guess even the players are as dense as WGA. Do you really think the pay to win was a serious comment? Geez, no wonder there are so many steam rolls.

 

And yes, I see many more lopsided games since the last couple MM updates.

 

The way I see it WGA is more interested in making things look pretty than actually fixing game issues. They do all sorts of fixes for graphics, but a big fat nothing to make game play better.

And gungrave,

FYI it does not matter how intelligent you play when you repeatedly get a team that is full of idiots. How do you cover for a team when over half just charge blatantly? Nope, nothing one tank can do to offset darwinistic tankers.
