Tier 2 has Loooong queue times, just waited 5 minutes to join a match and was booted from queue for waiting too long.

 

If new people play this game and have such long wait times at tier 2 they're gonna leave.

 

I think WG needs to tweak the algorithm and shorten it to like 2 min max waiting time, and if it can't find a match just put tier 2's in an AI only match.

I have virtually been to South America when WGC decided to send me there. The que times are very long there.

Otherwise, I thought the 1 1/2 minute que times were long at tier 9.

If you can't get low tier battles on NA server, go to SA. Agree they should do the same thing in NA as they do in SA: if not enough tanks to fill a battle, split the humans equally and fill the rest with bots. New players won't know to go to SA server.

They already have bots on na as well as sa.  They might just have different limits to the amount of players vs bots in a match.

Why would you even want to play tier II unless you were new and had too?

new players dont have that issue because they are playing with only new players and bots, not older players trying to beat them up for free wn8

I play tier 2 because there are a few premiums at tier 2 that I enjoy playing. Also the gameplay itself at tier 2 is much more enjoyable at times.

 

I also enjoy ww1 and early ww2 tanks, it's cool playing smaller tanks with their own unique designs, playstyles, guns, etc.

To be honest for low tier play SA is by far the best choice as there are far fewer padder clubbers to contend with and frankly is much less toxic as one doesn't have to carry mountains of crap while WG's bots are fairly decent. Just deal with the one or several actual players in reasonable time then just enjoy farming the bots.

The new MM system will make higher skilled players wait longer in low tier queues because it is looking for other higher skilled players to pair them with, before tossing in low skilled/new players

Use the SA server. I haven't had any trouble getting tier 1 to 5 battles.

well for instance some long time players have about 30-60 tier 2-3 premium crew trainers that wargaming has given to us FREE over the years and quite frankly at a tier 2 premium tank you might get an extra 350-600 exp per battle over a tier 6 or 8 premium giving you maybe as mush as 150 on a near godlike battle. the bonus exp you get for crew driving a premium is MORE the lower tier you go and less the higher tier you go

tier 9 premium STRV might only give you 28 extra exp for the crew on a normal battle. So in short if you want 6 skill crew in your tier 10 russian light run everday X2 in your 20 or more russian premium light tanks. on a X5 weekends running crew boosters you can earn as much as 5 million exp extra for your 1 single crew running boosters and X5 .. simply use the same crew in each and every light tank premium.

The bots on NA are only for New Player status. It's extremely easy to get out of that status. I made a reroll recently and had 1 New Player battle, then it kicked me to regular queue.

 

On SA the bots are for all accounts.
