Fascinating!  This is the LINK to the World of Tanks Wiki Battle Mechanics section which contains some of the information from the video.

I hope that this video is just a beginning of series of educational videos explaining spotting , camo , penetration mechanics , you name it... :great: . This should be included as mandatory in ingame tutorial.

I was aware of matchmaking system before this video came out, whit current matchmaking everything explained in this video is correct.. yes, the current matchmaking works that way..

But.. I really don't see any good reason that matchmaking should go only one tier higer or lower..  not a single reason.. whit all this parameters that u have mentioned in the video..

Only 1% of games are imbalanced?
Guess my luck strikes yet again, cause i regularly have those games where one team has more hightiers then the other team.
.
Oh and you forgot to explain that part one of the russian devs confirmed, you know the part where when you are playing bad MM puts you ontop of the tierlist and when you play to good it punishes you by putting you at the bottom.
I wonder why that part was left out of the video  :trollface:
.
.
But hey on the bright side, maybe some of the trollplatooners now realize their errors...

Well it's not regularly as it's 1 of 3 out of the possible matches you can get (if you're a Medium, TD, Arty or Heavy). You can basically end up in one of 3 different battles:

Battle tier 5 game with tier 3, tier 4 and tier 5
Battle tier 6 game with tier 4, tier 5 and tier 6
Battle tier 7 game with tier 5, tier 6 and tier 7

The matches won't always have an equal spread. So you could have all tier V for example  (that could be any battle tier but most likely battle tier 6).  Basically you have a one in 3 chance of being matched against tier VII tanks (but that's not a guaranteed average so don't expect to do 30 matches and only ever have 10 matches against tier VII. There is no internal system that makes sure you rotate through your battle tiers equally).

Sugestion: at some point try balancing tier 10 TDs per each team. Tier 10 TDs vs tier 10 medium tanks is pretty unbalancing

As it takes no account of player skill, How can it be considered fair and balanced?
Not talking about putting good players together against good players and bad vs bad, but a decent mix of each in both teams.
I get very tired of looking at my team at the start of the battle and just knowing it will be over in 2 mins flat. As the mm has decided a team with a total efficiency added together of about 70-150 vs a team on about 300-700 is "fair and balanced"

This is a stupid and inefficient implementation.
I could make a better algoritm that would both be better at getting good teams together and would put less stress on the server while doing so.

WG matchmaker is illusion,tanks by tier and sort are good, BUT , players are chosen by eff. .One day i play in team with great top tier player,and winning,but then MM going at different proporcion ,and in my team i have 5-6 red-potatos,while enemy team have top-tier platoon of blue clan players with great skill.Also,my T34 and Lowe MM put with 3-4 tier X tanks in rendom battles. Bla..bla...bla , just empty stories WG .
Where to send ticket with battle screenshoots ,just to prove everyone what i am talking about ???????????
