Yadda yadda yadda, whining whining whining. 

 

Now that I'm done crying and wiping my tears of pay2win I just wonder if WG has ever acknowledged the problem in any way.

Has anyone actually proven a problem (and moreso proven the situation worse than before the MM changes) rather than just whining about their own perceptions?

Nope, since its WG they are probably completely unaware. At least until T8 prem sales start to drop. Rest assured that once they do (the sales obviously) a patch will be released the following day that will break something else but make T8 prems top tier most of the time.

As an aspiring CC I would like to acknowledge the aforementioned problem on behalf of WG.

Silly question, but how likely were you to do so anyway? You already have a couple on the 'deemed OP' list.

I own a Skorp G. Would buy it back. But that's because I need Premium German TDs and so it happens that WG has many of those.

OK, is the problem OP t8 premium tanks or constantly playing in t10 battles? Or both, chances for each are kinda same, it is WoT after all. :]

Yes, after 9.18 they acknowledged there were far too many tier 8 only battles and tweaked the mm to make less of them.

 

Or do you have some other problem?

There is no problem of course!

 

I had 24 games in Mutz, 23 Tier X 1 Tier 8 (the first only)

On 48 battles in Lowe I had 2 tier 8 battles, 40 Tier X rest tier 9. (But Lowe is fine in tier X :justwait:)

 

Best performer was panther 88: 30 Battles 30 Tier X

 

T54 First prototype: 15 Battles - 15 Tier X

 

T 34: 10 out of 10 Tier X

 

Problems? I don't see any, just conspiracy theories as usual :girl:

 

Working as Intended :trollface:

Lowe makes good money and training leopard crew is always good :)

 

I don't bother much, probably it will be fixed when acknowledged, however it can be frustrating where you can farm 2,5 3k damage in tier 7-9 games, you will struggle to get 1,5 -2 in tier X games.

 

I just found out for some tanks that have very bad dispersion when sniping to weakspots (like Mutz) is fairly unpleasant experience to play in tier X (unless you load skill ammo) since you need to close in and you know.... 2/3 shots - garage :girl:

 

 

- Preferential MM premiums are still manageable, tier 9 allows you to be useful to the team. :izmena:

 

 

BY the way is not a premium tanks only issue, Tiger 2 and IS 3 are having same painful process (but I admit I didn't play many games with those now).

How bad can it be? Half the team should be Tier VIII?

I'm finding this.  My usual evening will involve some games in Type 59 and of late I've been playing in m Alien a lot.  You never see more than five Tier IX tanks in the worst-case scenario.  I get very little joy from rolling through Tier VI tanks anyway.
