With 381 and 276 games respectively I find it very hard to believe you've never been top tier. It is normal currently to mostly not be top tier though.

Neither, it's designed poorly.

 

When you are in an "all tier 8" game, that counts as being top tier, because there are no tanks higher tier than yours. That's obviously not what we, as players, think should be "top tier" but that's how the game counts it.

 

So if you're in 10 battles, and two of them are all-tier-8, then according to the logic that WG programmed into the MM you had two games as top tier.

Also, have you been platooning? If you platoon in Tier 8 tanks it's practically guaranteed that you'll never be top tier unless it's an all-same-tier battle.

Have you tried standing on one leg, while reading the Bible backwards only wearing a tutu? It works for my Type 59.

A fun fact. If you play in platoons you cancel out the bad luck protection. I have seen 20+ bot/mid tier games in a row while helping new players/friends try out the game. Which sadly, more often then not, means they stop playing after the first session together. 

 

ps. I suck so that doesnt help.

This is the norm for tier 8 prems right now. WG are working on a fix for it (after taking over a year to respond to players complaints about it). They said the fix will "take some time".

Just don't worry about the tier and just try to do as much as you can.  In most cases I see the other teams top tier tanks as bonus xp.  If you want to be on top to bully lower tiers get a tier ten tank.

The matchmaker is laughably terrible, but Wargaming is either unable or unwilling (you decide which is worse) to fix it. Everyone from newcomers to the super-unicums know the MM is a dumpster fire of failure, and there is no change in sight.

 

Best you can do is either play the best you can under the inherently flawed system and make the most of it in a support role, or find another game until Wargaming fixes the MM... which could be some considerable time. Whichever you choose to do, good luck to you. ;)

  Like the Italiano Progresso, I was hoping we could get a shot to earn the 50TP by doing another Marathon.

I think you forgot the "while going commando" stipulation... ;)

Don't own the 50TP but got the Löwe. I can't recall the last time I saw a T7 tank below me while playing that tank. It's all t10 or all T8 battles. In any case, its gun works great in both scenarios so I can't complain. I guess seeing lower tiers too often would be overkill of new players as Lowe is a tough tank with a great gun.

Bugged or broken?

No, it's being run by people too stupid to fix what they messed up, they are too consumed with selling bundles and making money.

You have to realize you are dealing with people of Russian mentality.

Customer satisfaction is a afterthought, unlike the west where it's a priority.

Where this an american or European company, it would have been fixed within a day, but it's Russian and as long as they are making money, there is no need to fix it!!!

There are businesses that are run with retention in mind, this is not one of them.

I assume you have zero business skills?!

My business skills have nothing to do with WG. But your Whine8 is in the darkest purple possible... :facepalm:
