Tier 6, 7 and 8 are all primary victims of the new, "improved" MM. 

 

Especially on tier 8 you will land as a bottom tier around 75% of the time, and this is NOT an exaggeration - this means, your poor little tier 8 will have to deal with all the overbuffed superheavies, like Maus or Type 5 on regular basis. It will have to deal with tanks such as deathstar of Jagdtiger E100 that can cripple it into uselessness in one shot. 

 

Now, don't get me wrong - low tiers are not in very good state due to lack of truly fun machines, but at least tier III is better than ever. And most importantly, low tier grinds are at the very least SHORT.

Trier8 is the biggest victim as there is a huge jump in tanks ability t8 to t9 which means even tanks 1 trier higher are much better. T9 tanks get more alpha, dpm, armor, vr, gun handling. This is especially visible for meds. 

 

T6 is fine if it wasn't for new broken t8 prems since their prem ammo can usually pen t8 heavies and the vr disparity isn't that big. T7 is fine. You see t9 but max 3 so it's ok. The only issue is WG uses this trier as a free exp sink so there are many bad tanks here.

Worst tier is whatever you play now. Even tier 10, its no fun getting blown up in seconds if that happens... :trollface:

And if you are low tier, but still ruin high tier tank, that improves mood fast...

 

You gona have to find tank you like and keep it. For me those are some premium tanks.

Due to new MM (made from a person that never ever played the game i presume) tier 8 is the worst as well as tier 6. Always bottom tier and for premium tanks with pref MM now is a nightmare.

WG lost me as a paying customer for good. My relatives already uninstalled the game and many of my friends left till this is fixed. Not even the desperate free premiums and "good" missions succeeded to

bring them back. Probably i will join them when i find (and am searching) a game that gives me FUN to play.

I certainly agree with HidesHisFace. And you have to endure this for a long time, until you have the required (approximately) 100,000 XP to get to tier 9.

 

The saving grace of tier 8 (in my humble opinion) is skirmishes. I find that using a particular tank regularly in skirmishes with a clan makes the grind a LOT easier.

 

At the moment I have only one tank in tier 9 (the RU 251, because it was moved from tier 8 to 9 some patches ago). The XP grind to tier 10 is so steep that I don't have any incentive to grind that, nor do I have enough enjoyment from the RU251 at tier 9 to play it much. Will have to wait and see how it goes with other tier 9's when I eventually get them.

 

Regards, C.

I liked the game better before the new 'improved' MM.
Anyway, T8 is horribly bad atm.

I think tier 9 is best, tier 10 on occasions and that's about it.

High tiers. Too expensive (in terms of time, commitment, knowledge, nerves ...) for the fun they offer.

I've always disliked 1-3. I still mostly play a game or two in every tank instead of free exp, at least for the 2x. The game starts to make sense at tier 4 imo.

After that it's more about the tank and the map.

Tier 8 as it's going to see so many tier 10 games due to new mm meaning tier three tier 10's are always going to be looking for seven tier 8's to beat up.  Tier 3 as the difference between tier 3/4/5 is massive so you face too many tanks that you can't even damage yet they can 1 shot you.

Tier 3 doesn't face tier5 anymore. So sad for the derps and OI exps out there.

tier 8 is the beeyatch tier

you pretty much bend over and let higher tier do you in the butt. 

 

tier 10 can be bad cuz a lot of free exp kiddies/baddies running around being useless, not to mention a lot of vehicles in tier 10 are simply noncompetitive/crap

I still like the new mm. Fighting 3 t10s is not a problem.

With the current MM only tiers that are either always top tier or have +1 max MM are playable for me.

Tiers from one to ten are the worst, all others are just joy.
