So I was reading up on how the MM works and the template system. I’m new enough that I have only really played the 3/5/7 system. I know that besides tier, the matchmaker tries to match by tank type, but I think I have noticed a pattern with my e-25 that I got in a Christmas box. I frequently notice a longer queue time for battles and rarely end up in a battle where the other team doesn’t also have an e-25 ( it does happen though). The times that I am the only e25 seem to be after the longest queue time also. I’m wondering if the MM sees an e-25 and tries to match it with an opposing e-25. I think that it’s a good idea because the e25 isn’t exactly a “balanced” tank. What do you guys think? Am I crazy? Have you guys noticed this in your e25 or any other tank? Do you think it’s a good idea?

MM will match a heavy against a heavy or a TD against a TD, but not an E 25 against an E 25.

MM will try to balance within 1 the number of TDs per side, but it doesn't care what those TDs are.  It's possible to have 1 TD and the enemy have none as well.

 

The E25 is also a pref MM tank, it will never see a tier 9 unless fail-tooned.  That likely increases the odds of you seeing an E25 as they also have pref 7 matchmaking.

Got it. Thanks for the clarification. I didn’t realize that the e25 has preferential MM (not that it needs it!). I appreciate the replies.

Template for matchmaker atm is 3 5 7 - so you can mix in what ever tanks in that - but normally it tries to match tank types per side : you can read the more detailed information here : http://wiki.wargamin...Matchmaker_(WoT)  and the changes that will come to it here : https://worldoftanks...-status-update/

it's probably slower because it's got preferred MM
