Yep the match maker is fixed in this latest update. 49 games before I saw one single top tier game. Here are a few of the fixed attributes I've come to love.

 

MM fixed, so you see top tier once a week.

MM fixed, so that platoons never see top tier

MM fixed, so that tier 6 and tier 8 never see top tier

MM fixed, so that people on one team have 8 heavies and the other team has 1

MM fixed, so that light tanks are top tier vs. heavies

MM fixed, so that arty are top tier vs heavies

MM fixed,so that you never see a pure (1) tier game

MM fixed, so that one team has 3 Maus, 2 Type 5 heavies as well as type 4 heavies and give the enemy team a =3500 hit point advantage from the start.

MM fixed.......... so that you rage quite every other game and say [edited]this game.

 

I love all the fixes in the current patch how about you?

Both bullcrap.

 

Arty, Lights and TDs are mirrored on each team by the matchmaker. I have NEVER had a game where this isnt the case.

Not sure, I haven't seen much of these happen that often.

Grinding the Indien Pz for 2 days now.

 

Seen 1 (one!) tier 6 battle in it. Seems legit.

The new MM is a nightmare, and the timing is terrible for me as I'm grinding a few Tier 8 heavies at the moment.

I am still hoping they will go back to the old 9.18 MM.

Can't have that, it was too difficult to get that one 3-5-7 game a month where you kicked [edited]and could tell yourself that buying another T8 prem was a good idea. :P

 

Jokes aside... oh, wait, that's more or less the case. Doomed to follow top-tier tanks until you meet six T8 TDs sitting in the base that are waiting to become relevant. Extreme fun when you itch to actually do something without encountering a tank you essentially can't deal with alone.

 

I get the occasional T6 game now, but they're honestly just annoying. I strictly prefer two-tier games, the variability of having only three relevant top tanks is just insane. In related news I had a 3-3-9 game as top-tier (Type 59). Got pushed into enemy fire by a friendly O-I....

It was spot on so briefly. WG must have realised they can't have their players too happy so they buggered it up again. :(

Why? There was just as much whining about that as there is the current one.

Because it was more fun.

They fixed the MM like i fixed my marriage....:(

MM fixed, so you see top tier once a week. (always top tier in tier X)

MM fixed, so that platoons never see top tier  (play tier X platoons, but I even got toptier in VII platoons)

MM fixed, so that tier 6 and tier 8 never see top tier (lie)

MM fixed, so that people on one team have 8 heavies and the other team has 1 (extreme example but imho heavies and mediums should not be treated equally)

MM fixed, so that light tanks are top tier vs. heavies (lie, seperate classes for MM)

MM fixed, so that arty are top tier vs heavies (dont play arty)

MM fixed,so that you never see a pure (1) tier game  (See those plenty at tier X, but also enough at 9 and 8)

MM fixed, so that one team has 3 Maus, 2 Type 5 heavies as well as type 4 heavies and give the enemy team a =3500 hit point advantage from the start. (imbalance due to heavies and mediums being treated equally by the MM but it really depends all on the map, small city maps without room to manouvre would favor the Heavy team but on a more open map I prefer mediums over Heavy every time).

MM fixed.......... so that you rage quite every other game and say [edited]this game. (mimimimi)

I like them.

Totally right; I just played 20 battles and not only was I always bottom tier, but so where all my teammates and enemies. Complete mystery; my head exploded as I was trying to make sense of it and I'm now scraping the sludge off my screen in order to go and write about it in the forum.

It's funny, the most argument I hear is play tier 10 you will be top tier. If you're into that fine, but there are 10 tiers for a reason and I enjoy all of them I hate to be regulated to tier 10 just so I have a decent matchup.

I think the new MM workes just fine overall.

A few adjustments needed.

- the 3-5-7 works really bad for the tier 8 mediums (bad pen overall) so make sure they get to be top tier more than 1 of 10 battles.

- arty dont have to be top tier at all

- make sure platoons have their share of top tier battles

 

OP, what u say about heavies balanced out against TDs and mediums are not true and it was way worse before the new MM.

T6 feels awful at the moment, might as well play T7 as their MM is almost identical...

Arty and LT should never be top tier.
