The story behind this is simple: I have a daily job and I need to play during nighttime if I want to, so I decided to make a small experiment due to some suspicions that I had.

Some time before this I had the impression that during night time, if I play tier 8, I get into far more tier 10 games than during daytime.

So, what I did is reserve some time off my summer off-work time to compare what is the ratio of tier 10 games in night time compared to daytime and I played every day 25 games (25 daytime and 25 nighttime) for this during 6 days. Every day I was playing either night or day, but never one after the other, so that I don't get tired, thing that would serious impact the results.

Daytime 9:00 am - 21:00 pm interval / Nighttime 22:00 pm - 5:00 am interval

What I observed was that during daytime the ratio of tier 10 games in a tier 8 tank was 2 out of 5 as an average while during nighttime it was 4 out of 5 average.

The tank I used for the whole experiment was the French Revalorise.

 

Is this a known thing? I am asking as this would seriously impact the tier diversity during night time.

 

I don't want this to be a "crying" topic, but more of one to help me/us understand how matchmaking functions on nighttime compared to daytime.

If you knew how many players played the different tiers at different times of day I think your mystery would be solved - MM does what it needs to do with the mix it has to put a game together in a time limit.

Less kids and occasional players at night, so players skill and tier 9-10 use go up. And because players skill go up you need to take out checked big toys tier 9-10 with good mm, not time to joke tanks.

 

Plus: around 2:00 arty use also go up, people too tired to ride their tanks

I agree with what you are saying, but I am thinking that most people would find it fair to wait 1 minute(just an example) for a game when there is low population, compared to a few seconds when there is high population, rather than have a system that would put you almost exclusively in high tiers, just so that it does it very fast.

Don't get me wrong, I don't want only same tier battles. I just want a balanced amount of each, during any time of the day, with the expense of waiting a bit more when needed.

But what do you do when you just can't play during daytime(in my case it's work related) and you have to grind some silver to buy "the big toys"? The fun factor of the game seriously drops, when you know that you have to face almost every match tanks that are 2 tiers higher.

And some of us may prefer waiting longer in the day too if it meant fewer bottom tier games but WG seem to prefer a super fast match maker at all times.

I agree, but the bottom line is that WG should do what they PROMISED to do and that is provide an healthy mix of top/bottom tier games.

I really hope they do and this regardless of the hour at which you play the game

Very good answer, hope it doesn't get overlooked.

 

Tier VIII is good for Skirmishes and Team Battles.

Do those if you feel that 3 Tier X vehicles on the enemy team are too much.

Or buy a preferential MM premium tank. :)
