Hello everybody, I'm sure every single one of you have at one time felt kicked in the balls by the Matchmaking.
Here's a discussion video of this specific topic. I hope you all enjoy!

really WG plz put back the old matchmaking when t5 was playing against t10s. i think its the only way for the game to get rid of all the whiners that cry every game and in every forum. they wont improve they wont try to learn the game and how they r supposed to shoot the other "low" tanks of the opposite team and wont learn that they need to flank and not go like headless chickens head to head with tanks 2 tiers over them. i really cant stand their cry anymore...

Every time somebody tries to have a rational debate about the current MM someone has to come out with it's not as bad as it used to be with the old MM. Go back to old MM you say, I guess you are trolling, WG changed that MM for a reason, it was terrible. Just because it was +/- 4 in the past doesn't mean it's perfect now or couldn't be done better now.

The current MM needs refining, Sometimes being the lowest tier can be challenging and fun, more often than not it isn't as you have to rely on your top tiers to play efficiently.

No problem with +/- 2 games, I think OP makes some valid points about the way a lot of +/- 2 games seem top tier heavy in numbers.

As for me I found problem with how often I must play being bottom/middle tier

I would agree on 50%, but seems to be WOT give me only about 20% of games against my own tier. Not fun at all

I don't get my I get -3 for this topic, but yes I do NOT think the old MM was good, but I said that it is not perfect and that it needs refining. Right now it focuses on minimizing queue-time and not on matching people fairly. And it would be nice if people choose to come with their own opinions and feedback instead of thumbing down without leaving a comment.
This is a after all a forum, not a gallery, if I didn't want other people's thoughts and opinions on this, I wouldn't have made this video tbh.

MM in 8.8 is worse for T8... in 8,7 I saw mostly t8 in my T69 and Tiger II. Now, it's T10 constantly (11 matches in the T69 and 3 in the KT).

On the other hand, my T30 and E50 saw only T9 today.

MM is broken beyond belief with regards to the vehicles.

However it's even more broken with regards to the player skill. I've had loads of matches that have been either a landslide win or defeat. Usually defeat. I don't have xvm but on one match it was a 33%-er.  That's ridiculous.  


WG needs to implement a skill based MM asap and make the game actually fun.  It's not particularly good to win 15-0. To lose 15-0 is just extracting the urine.

totaly agree, there seems to be no balance, although several times last night I pulled a win from sub 40% games which is a good feeling but I can only do that if im top tier, most of the times last night I was bottom tier for my grinds.
