The past year has seen the game change to single tier platoons and a single NA server.  Why wouldn't single tier MM be possible? Every time I talk about this in a game, everyone is fine with the idea of waiting 2-3 minutes for a match, if they are guaranteed to fair matches. This would also solve the issue of fixing Preferred MM tanks that seems to stump the developers. Grand Battles were made more accessible by reducing the number of tanks needed to make a match.  Would anyone care if there were 12 or 13 tanks in a tier 8 match instead of 15?  if Low tier numbers are an issue, expand it to +1 tier only, out to tier 3.


 

Grumpy people that have given up on the game tell me that they would come back with fairer MM.


 

Seems like a reasonable thing to me.  What do you guys think?  Lets get this trending!!!


 

BTW: I discussed this with some developers at a "lets battle tour" event last summer and they had no good explanation other than they like the idea of being top tier and pounding lower tiers once in a while......

I think single tier MM would get stale. A little variety is nice.

 

Edit. Additional thought: Would make it easy to club at some tiers. For example I have a 60% win rate in the T-34-85M. Pretty confident that would be higher if I was garrenteed to only see tier 6 battles.

Matchmaker should prioritize the 5-10 MM first, then same tier MM and finally if it really can't find a match the 3-5-7 MM should kick in as a last resort.

I think 5's fighting 6's is fine. Same tier battles are fine too but nothing at all wrong with +/-1 MM.

Why would anyone vote against a one tier battle?

 

Is waiting in queue an extra 30 seconds too much?

I agree dockmaster.  I will wait an extra minute or two, to know that I can use my tank in the intended role, against a balanced opponent.  I bet I survive in the rounds longer enough to cover in the increased wait times.

As a follow up, I have never had anyone in a game say they wouldn't prefer singe tier MM. The poll results are shocking me right now.  Probably a reflection of the higher percentage of long term, dedicated players on the forums and the higher percentage of casual players in the games.

​Because I don't want to be in an all Tier V battle all the time. I have no problem with same tier battles, at all. On occasion they are fun and different. But I wouldn't want to play same tier all the time. I would prefer +/- 1

If you enjoy the challenge, play crappy, underpowered tanks... like most of the British line below tier 9.

Right...the challenge of a platoon of 3 tier 7 heavy tanks in a tier 9 fight when the enemy heavies are 9's. Not fair to the rest of your team.

So, playing 20 matches a day will take an extra 40-60 minutes over and above the time it takes now?  No thanks.  I have a job and a family, and my play time is limited.  MM is fine and is infinitely better than it has been in the past.

i think only heavy armor tanks should have +1-1 tier matching.  that way their armor stays relevant.

The game shouldn't be about what the tank can do but what you can do with it

 

Edit:  As context.  If I played by your definition I should not have taken my T32 on airfield away from the "heavy area" and crossed toward the sea to fend off an enemy push that included lights, mediums and a heavy.  I would have stayed where I was and waited for the inevitable flanking shots from the sides and rear.

 +- 1 tier is likely the sweet spot

I feel a tighter MM would give an even larger advantage to the good players.

Because we like variety?  Also, it may not be an issue if actually implemented, but I can conceptually see the potential it has to break progression.

My objection has little to do in potential change in time to get a match, but a claim of an extra 30 seconds wait is about as supportable as a claim of an extra two minutes.

Based on past behavior, it would seem rather unlikely that match making would be tightened without rebalancing of the vehicles.  Right or wrong, WG has an idea in mind for how they think a match should play out and vehicles would likely be rebalanced around maintaining that concept.
