Decided to do some tier 8 farm today and found myself over and over again in  a tier 10 match up.
For 21 battles played, the average tier per battle was 9.8, which is +1.8 above my tier.
Is this how a matchmaking should be generally or did I have a unlucky streak of 21 matches?

Going against higher tiers isn't the main issue, but my 2 key is getting worn out, making me remap my keybindings.

They can't keep it 'as intended' like this for very long, people are going to leave in droves.

Klaus kellerman explained it quite well for us noobs or nobs, that with the MM format 3,5,7 tier 8 will always be matched with 9 and 10. Because that is how it works.....so if you play T8 it's always going to be the same:

Play LT or TD for a more kind MM though.
Played Solo T7 light and even got to be top tiered and rarely saw T9 tanks.

Some reddit guy collected data for a few games in medium/heavy compared to TD. The TD was half as likely to be buttom tier as the heavy/medium tank was.

They get Maus, Type 4 and 5 other heavies, we get 3 tier 8 heavies and rest meds but the TD's and arty were matched up so that's alright then ffs.

If someone would play 100 battles, I think that 15 of them can be tier 10 and another 15 tier 9, while the rest can be a mix of top tier / same tier battles. Now it seems the other way around.
It does make me wonder if WoT is a game I should continue playing.

Guess I am lucky than lol.

 

Continued the rest of my day playing anything but tier 8 and finally I have a more diverse MM. Seems tier 8 is screwed in specific.

You would think a profit hungry company would react to the costumers dissatisfaction in a system. As i se a majority dont like it.

Been playing Borsig and Blackdog back-to-back a bunch of hours today and it has been top tier every other game. Guess arty works as well, so it seems like "support" classes are favoured in that regard. Because reasons.

It's curious, I experienced the same. A few ago days ago there was a thread on 'Replay analyzer' and how to use it to get the MM spread. This is data from 9.18 (so since the first iteration of new MM),  but I also got more favorable MM with a TD. (As in, more top tier +2 games).

 

Let me quote myself from here

This ^

 

Udes 03 gets to snack on tier 6 all the time and tier 8 lights like the WZ-132 get frequent top tier MM.

 

59-Patton and Object 252? Not so much, for them good MM is a tier 9 match.

 

Reason is that MM builds a game out of TDs, lights and arty, then uses heavies and mediums to fill in the gaps. So TD/Lt/Arty get MM as intended, and the other two classes get screwed.

I vaguely remember something about MM being set up to put the player as a top tier after several bottom tier battles. Does it mean a single "hand out" top tier battle every now and then, or is it actually programmed to be more consistent with keeping it at the sane levels? if it doesn't now, it certainly should.

Then why don't you come up with the perfect formula to give everybody a fair MM for a 1-3 tier match up?
