I would like an Option to que for Randoms with a skill-based Matchmaker. Could change the name from Random to something like Even Matches. That way they are not decided before they start, in many cases. If others had rather que for matches that are purported to be Random that is fine. Freedom of choice is good. 

 

I would also like to be able to que for matches where there is no "artillery". And again, if others wish to que for artillery matches that is fine. Freedom of choice is good. It grows the player base!

 

Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing all the positive responses!

and just how do you suppose that they decide what is skill?  is it overall or by tank?

 

how about.. if you get the option .. then you can only choose 1.. either skill based matchmaking or no arty.. but not both...

well we are at it..   I am sure there are players who would like not to play against td's or heavies or mediums ... or not playing with players below a certain wr.

 

what are you going to use to decide skill ... 

 

You continue to post about wanting skill based matching making and no arty yet provide no suggestions on how it should be implemented.

 

Don't like arty..  there are other tank games that offer that ... believe Jingles did a video on one...  and that game was suppose to kill World of Tanks.   lol

I didn't know fragmenting the playerbase is called "growing"

ah yes the old anyone who disagrees is a fanboi tactic, too funny.  but please clarify do you want skill balanced or skill based?  one having equal or close to skill on both teams while the other is skill tiered system.  The issue i have with the first is that the more balance and predictability you bring to a game the less variety you have and after a while that can start to get boring.  not to mention i wonder how well platoons would affect this kind of MM.  then there is the tiered system, again the platoon issue comes up but to add to is those who are close to the split line would be forever bouncing between tiers

 

the ability to choose what vehicles you face imo is always going to be a bad idea.  players should never have that power to affect another players queue times based on whether or not they find the vehicle other players like to play or even have to play unacceptable

Given the current server pop, this wouldn't be advisable, at least not for NA.

 

What would you hope to achieve from this ability to opt out?

 

Unanswered questions for every SBMM thread include:

What would be used to judge "skill"?

Where/how would you set the various dividing lines for "skill" levels?

How would you account for the various levels of "skill" demonstrated by different players? (there are some that are very good at T-VI but abysmal at T-VIII)

 

Let's start with these 3.

Just another topic repeated ad nauseam from someone that wants to be carried because they continually fail to learn the basics themselves.

How many posts can one person make whining about removing artillery from the game, or removing artillery from THEIR games? Like, it's not going to happen.

So you did not want a discussion, you're just trolling by reposting your same old failed crap ideas.  I see.  GG.  :B

 

BTW, it is queue, not que.  Maybe you should post in your native language forum.

If they didn't release that crappy format for team battles and ranked battles, those could have been exactly what SBMM people were looking for.  Then the SBMM crowd could see that it isn't the MM afterall.

OP....

We barely have enough players around here to screw in a light bulb.  

 

Seriously. That would just make it worse.

 

*Besides, if you ever want to play some superly fun and close battles, you should come join one of my training room battles. I use a proprietary technique of Skill Balance when making up the team roster. I've learned that when SBMM is used effectively, it actually does work. And after a few preliminary battles {and once I see how people play} we usually have some pretty close and amazing battles. Always fast, always furious, and always fun! If you like to brawl, look for me on weekends/nights on the Central server.

 

~Cheers!

Never going to happen in Random battles.

 

This is not an insult, or an argument, just pointing out reality. You're asking for something that WG is never going to do. There are some things that they will change about this game, like maybe they'll make Frontline mode a permanent or semi-permanent addition to the game. But any of the various forms of skill based matchmaking will never be part of Random battles, that's just simple reality.
