There is no longer any doubt! 

The Belorussians were in fact lying in a jar of pure vodka when they wrote the algorithms for the matchmaking.

Use a fooking spoiler!

 

And also, at obscure times the MM doesn't have enough of the tanks it needs to make normal games, so it makes one or two of these games now and then to get rid of the overflow.

 

At least, that's what I think happens.

 

Be happy that you saved the MM for the night for the next hour or so.

Ohh yeah the good old matchmaking.

Sometimes it makes really weird matchups like this with unbalanced number of toptiers but the good thing is: it happens pretty rarely.

They should really fix this because it sucks when the enemy team has an numerous advantage in high tiers because they can steamroll a flank or team much faster.

Maybe it was so screwed because the enemy team had T5/6 Lights while your team had T7/8 Lights.

 

Here a (imo funny) screenshot i just remembered from a year ago where i was the only T5 in a pure T7 matchup.

That happened most likely because

- your scouts were of a higher tier

- your team didn't have any "normal" tier 7s

 

However... still doesn't seem very balanced (neither skill- nor team-wise :P )

I have had it once that I was the only T6 in the battle full of T8 heavies. I was in a kv-2 so had little chance of doing much damage :amazed:

I could give you at least 10 screenshots where i am(or my platoon) the only bottom tier tank in the battle. Is it possible? Yes. Is it in the +/-2 MM bracket? Yes. But i don1t think it's fair to my team that they have a Wolverine instead of an IS....

The MM apparently (according to WG vidoes i've seen) only starts messing about after queueing for more than a minute. Naturally i've had a number of times i get thrown into the game on 59 seconds because the game starts throwing a panic ^_^

 

I've had queues for like 45+ seconds when there were hundreds of people queueing on the very tier i was trying to find a game. On the whole though MM is quite solid these days.
