To restore overall happiness and faith in the integrity of WoT, I propose WG implement a new set of controls that will provide players with greater granular control over those aspects of the game causing the pain, displeasure and angst so often expressed in this forum.  For the sake of this discussion, lets put these proposed settings under the umbrella term "Trouble Free" mode.   Your thoughts and suggestions on my proposed changes (below) or new ones are welcome.

 

PROPOSED TROUBLE-FREE MODE OPTIONS

ONE:  "Top Tier Only" Check-box option [_] .  If checked the player is never middle or bottom when in a 3/5/7 template and never teamed with armor all in the same tier.

TWO:  "OP Filter."  Player has the option to select armor not to be on the opposing team.  Examples, if IS-7, KV-2, Grille 15 and Matilda are selected, MM will never assign player to fight a team with the selected OP armor.  OP armor of course can be on the friendly team and used by the player.

THREE: "Premium Armor" Check-box option [_].  If checked, the player will never face Premium armor.

FOUR: "WIN8 Ceiling".  Player selects a "do not exceed" WIN8 rating for opponents.  For example if 550  is selected, MM will not allow opponents with a higher rating than 550.  No such restriction applies to the friendly team.

FIVE: "Win Rate Ceiling": Player selects a do not exceed ceiling Win Rate for opponents.  For example if 45% is selected opponents with higher winrates will not be encountered.  No such restriction applies to the friendly team.

SIX: "Premium Ammo" Check-box option [_], If checked, MM will eliminate players with premium ammo from the opposition.    No such restriction applies to the friendly team.

SEVEN: "Armor Type" Filter, Player can eliminate entire armor types from the opposition team.  Any combination of TD, Heavy, Medium, Light, SPG and Wheeled is allowed.  No such restriction applies to the friendly team.

 

Any combination of "Trouble Free" Mode settings will be allowed.

You left out the contingent that selecting any of the available options disables the Battle button.

Sounds like a good set of options for a new PvE training mode with these new bots they’re testing

Many of these proposed Trouble Free mode settings are those already recommended by disgruntled players.  The remainder are IMO are common-sense solutions to prevalent forum rages.

Had you included a no arty mode I may have considered this a serious post.

Sure, then be prepared to sit in queue all day for your one battle ... which you will likely lose anyway.

But it does include a no arty mode.  Recommended changes or additions  to the existing draft list are welcome.

Considered your critique and made this major mod, in bold.  Also included is the All Unicom option proposed by another contributor.

You must not mind waiting two hours or more for a match.
