I am trying to Ace my T6 Medium, I have noticed that if you select the 105mm you tend to get Tier 6 games, but if you select the 75mm howitzer you tend to get tier 4 or 5 games. Anybody else notice this?

never tried the t6 so i cant say.

but similar situation happened to me when i want to use my 76mm gun in my jumbo to fight same tier or lower, i get uptier to 8s that makes me regrate not using the 105mm instead.

The gun selected will not affect your matchmaking.

That's just a coincidence, or possibly you're being attacked by confirmation bias (not your fault, it's easy for that to happen). But either way the gun makes no difference, that's now how matchmaking works in this game.

I ran it with 105 and got nothing but tier 4 games. It's called Random MM for a reason.

I play better in my Jumbo E2 when I don't wear pants.

Friend, I'm not sure that gold and derping go hand in hand with this tank.

The 105 mm M4 would care to disagree.

Play the T6 on the SA server, you can fight bots.

Play it how you like, but my experience has been better shooting HE rather than HEAT.

The only thing I have noticed is people tend to notice things that don't mean anything then ascribe meaning to them.

I would agree.   My experience at tiers 5, & 6 with my Jumbo E2 is to just shoot the HE and save the credits.

Playing on SA and it gets tier 4 most of the time, but the OP team always has a Matilda played by a seal clubber

That's in your head.  Your tanks configuration has ZERO bearing on the match maker or your weight.

T6 Medium w/105 is the KV-2 of low tier.

I played my T6 last night and forgot that I picked it. I thought for sure I was in my M8a1 and was getting irritated that it was taking so long to reload.
