So recently I've been playing WOT and decided that I'd record the number of games played and number of games played as bottom tier. 

 

This has ended up around 400. From this I've had 93.75% of my games as bottom tier. 

 

Now I know I'm a new player-ish, less than 1,000 games and all that but it's very difficult to learn the game when you're up against tanks you can't pen, you can't out run, who can pretty much one shot you, occurring games at 93.75% of the time. 

 

Anyone else with similar bottom tier experiences? 

 

P.S. Don't even say "get tier X and you'll always be top tier". That's a stupid argument. How is someone going to stick around playing when they're not enjoying over 70% of their games. Without new players sticking around till higher tiers, this game will slowly die. That's the mechanics of MMOs.

Well new matchmaking is bad. Like, really bad. 

I still don't believe in 93% though

It's been over the last month or so, so it would be about an even split over the update.

 

I'd also like to say I'm playing at around Tier 5 and 6 most games.

Which is interesting, because, reportedly, all tier 8s end up in tier 10 battles.

Look at the bright side: he's a new player AND bothered to do the math instead of jumping into conclusions given by tinfoil hattery, while exposing a valid point. Some of our senior members can't even do half of that right.

With 7 tanks out of 15 being lowest tier in mm, 93% doesn't very plausible or trustworthy.

Did he?

 

BTW I've recorded all my battles with tier 8 tanks since the new mm and I've been top tier 39.8625% of the time.

 

What, you want evidence?

Unless WG gives some accounts preferential treatment for whatever morally bankrupt reason they may come up with.

I have played 1000 games in T8 the last week or so. Its close to 90% bottom teir. Either 10 or 9 top. Top teir in T8is close to mythical.

I only play up to tier 6 as I play for free and it gets expensive to replace ammo and carry out repairs over this.

I often enjoy fighting the Marder 38t TD and have recently found that the MM frequently puts approx 75% of Tier 3 vehicles in the line up on both sides and Tier 4 is the highest vehicle.

I have also seen a lot of games where TDs are the highest number of vehicles in the game. 

I have seen as many as 6 per side, fairly frequently.

Some of the MM has improved i.e. you don't get the frequency of 6 heavies vs 2-3 heavies as often as you used to.

It is true that somebody starting in wot gets stuck in the bottom tier and on the same two or three tired old maps to begin with.

Copy/paste is your friend regarding evidence.

 

It's generally said 89% of statistics are made up.  On this forum it's more like 97.85%

Some noobs will look for someone who is aligned to their own (hopelessly idiotic) beliefs and swallow their BS without thinking.  It does not matter that he has made up some stat it only matters that this 'stat' is what the noobs want to hear and regurgitate.

 

They've done studies for making stats up on the spot, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.

Well, the new MM dictates two things:

 

1: You are more often bottom tier than you are not, and you are top tier less than 1/3rd of the time, not counting same-tier matches.

2: Whatever your tier placement is within a match - you always have opponents you can deal with unless your tank already sucks on its own tier.

 

I have much more good matches and much less matches I feel hopeless in since the new MM, bottom tier or not. It is a major improvement.

Dear OP - sorry the local whiners overtook your thread to [edited]about Tier 8 (which you haven't sampled the delights of yet). Its not like there arent 50 other T8 MM threads to [edited]in.
