I was playing the skorpion a lot today to 3 mark it, played 41 games and noticed I got a lot of toptier games.

So I analysed the results and they confirmed my suspiscions:

Almost half of my ter8 games where toptier.

Whats wrong with the MM? Did WG do something or is it just TDs that get much better MM?

TD'S and lights get better MM, at least 3-4 weeks ago when I played.

Quite a lot better.

There's been a few comments around that maybe points to tanks that are balanced for both teams get 'better' MM than others.

Same with me. My 110 was top tier suspiciously often, what was even more suspicious was that I was top of the list often as well. :sceptic:

Something, something, MM rule about equal number of top tier TDs and LTs in opposing teams. 

Not sure tho, you gotta check that for yourself with more trustworthy source.

My Obj.416 is definitely not feeling that luck/friendly matchmaking.

Luckily the goldpen on that thing is good in tier 10s. Running into a JgPzE100 isnt. :girl:

I was in more than usual all tier VIII games yesterday, I saw the credits I was earning, I thought 'I wonder if everybody else is going for maximum credit farming on a x5 weekend like I am?'

TDs and lights get better mm. Dunno why but they do. It's been like this the entire patch actually..

The MM starts by adding lights and arty into the template:

however in 3/5/7 it usuaslly doesn't put more than 1 arty + 1 light into the "3"

then the MM adds the TDs (so it can give both teams the same number and same tier) - guess where in 90% of all battles a TD goes? - in the last of the "3" spots.

 

 

The effect is most visible with T7/8 Arty and T9 lights - you basically get 50% toptier battles, 30% same-tier battles and only occasionally anything else..

> Something is wrong, I was toptier in a tier8 tank a lot.

41 is rather small sample number. For ScorpG was my stat near 25% from (IIRC) 320 battles.

You can see it if you play tier 6 tanks. In tier 8 games the toptiers are never medium or heavy tanks.

Yes but didn't you used to be a member of FAME?

I mean it's pretty obvious when you think about it isn't it?

Same effect when i played arty to finish the SPG-15 mission.

 

Same goes for LT's and TD's.  They get far better MM then MT's or HT's, esp the tier 7-8 ones.
