This weekend has been amazingly bad.

 

The number of Routs this weekend has been in the 40% range, I define that as one team only getting 5 or less kills in a battle.  Even with Random luck kicked in either team should be able to kill 1/3rd of the apposing team.  A fair(ish) match is 7-8 dead, and good is 10+ killed for the loosing side.  If the match maker was working properly we should see about 10% routs as they just happen, but 50% should be the middle and the last 40% Good matches where it comes down to a bit of luck and who worked better as a team.

 

I'm just one person, but it has felt bad this weekend, worse than it has been in a few weeks.

They didn't really do anything to the MM to prevent routs.

No, it has just been blown outta the water by all the new vehicles that have been added since  it's last so called fix.

Not sure about MM...... hasn't been too bad for me but then again it hasn't been great.....

 

But RNG has been 100% complete garbage.....

However... that's fine.....

Its why I will not spend a dime on this game....

 

Great game ..visually and the sounds....

Some great players also commenting on the same issue....

Lately the weekends have been routs like you say. Not worth playing when it is not fun. Its just reality and there is nothing you can do about it so dont worry about things you cant control.

what issue?  rng hasnt changed, MM hasnt changed, since the only thing they dont balance is skill you would think it would be better than it was the last few years.  blowouts have been in the game for years and tbh i am not sure how they can really fix that

MM is the same but the skill levels of the players is wildly different more so than before it seems.

MM balance had no effect on routs and it was not intended to either, it was to keep you from being bottom tier too often and balance tank types. It is still working and much better than before the change in limiting bottom tier battles unless you're playing after 10 - 12:00AM when pop is low.

If they stopped rewarding players who contributed nothing (like next to no movement, 0 shots fired type crap), then the fail to the top would stop and game quality would slowly improve.   They should also not allow anyone to buy a premium tank unless they have already unlocked the tier on a regular tank.   Will never happen, but that will keep the low skill players at the low tiers until they learn to play.

No they have not gone back to THE old MM...

 

Because in that case, you would have AMX40's crawling around in your Tier 10 games - highly enjoyable!

 

Would you like to know more?

That's odd,  I could have sworn that most of the complaints about MM are that there are always MORE blowouts than before.   Seems to happen after every patch.  We should be up to 100% blowouts by now.  Going backwards should reduce blowouts.

crapman, I’m damn near there now. Well, depending on how you define “blowout”. If it is 15 to 5 or less then I feel like that’s a majority of my games. Back to running Wotnumbers though, so I can send you the log file.
