You are playing Japanese BS boxes.

The latest patch seemed to have messed up the MM a little bit.

 

It has happened only once so far, but given how they announced their new 3/5/7 MM (along with the 5/10 for +1 battles) as the best thing since sliced bread actually getting into a 3/3/9 match was kinda confusing:

My first game in Skoda t40 was mid tier. I guess the MM might favor a top tier match but not force it. Dunno. This was the first ever non top tier first game that I remember.

Japanese clicker should never be top tier.

The MM will ATTEMPT to put you as top tier in your first game, as the game assumes the tank is stock and may struggle.

 

There is no guarantee. The MMs prime target is que times. That is it, if you wait too long you get into any game.

O-Ho barely cares what tier the match is.

New MM removed the rule of "first battle being top tier". It is still possible that its increased chance to be top tier, but its no longer quarantee.

This from a guy that seal clubs at tier 1 and 2.  Much irony.

This was never the case in my opinion. Although it has been stated by Wargaming, quite some years (and matchmakers) ago that you were *more likely* to get "softer" match-ups in stock tanks I have my doubts it was ever true and even if it was this is not something they have spoken about for a long time and would likely no longer hold true, especially given how much the MM has changed in the interim.

The first battle with a new tank isn't guaranteed to be top tier. This is myth.

My first battle with Emil 1 or 2 (I forget which) was as bottom tier also. It does seem like there's an increased chance of being top tier though, just no guarantee.

For your first 10 battles in a vehicle you have a higher chance of being top tier. But since O-Ho is tier 8 you're screwed.

In fact this feature is one of the things protected by the infamous patent which everyone wheels out to support their tin-foil theories. Except that in this case it is clearly described.
