Just a poll to gauge player opinion on how often this situation arises post the MM changes.

I don't get that often a game in my tier 8 where the top tier is 8 or 9. Most of the times I get put into tier 10.

But WG said that this fact is true and are looking into it.

None, but then I don't play solo, I believe that solol players get one every time there is a full moon.

*slightly* biased poll in difference between 'very regularly' and 'days ago'. I don't see a problem with t8 MM - works the same as all other tiers, only difference seemingly that T8 premium owners not used to playing other tiers and so whining about having 3 T10 tanks in their games - big deal.

Days ago = before yesterday, very regularly = yesterday or more recently. Its not worth being too specific because most people won't recall very accurately.

During the trade in I changed my FCM for a Rev and that took until the mid twenties to get a top tier game in 3-5-7. So know how you feel.

Could those who are answering 'very regularly' post what tank they are using and what time of day they are playing to give me some idea why I can't make this happen.

Mostly lights (wz-132 and BC-12t) and the UDES, but I play at least one game in my t25 Pilot every session as well and haven't experienced the MM to be "bad" in that either.

 

Time of day is whenever I have time, no real structure in that. I think most of my games are played between 10:00 - 14:00 and 18:00 and 01:00.

I don't have any t8 lights so that's not really an option for me. I play the t9 Amx 13 90 regularly as I'm grinding it out and it has pretty good MM, although I'd say the t9 heavies I play have decent MM also so that probably just means tier 9 MM is ok. 

 

I asked about the time of play because when I play tier 8 after about 11pm it's utterly hopeless, every game without exception is tier 10 then in my experience.

I typically get one atleast once per day. However, still get much, much more bottom tier battles when the amount of best and worst matchups should be roughyl equal

I play about 7 tier 8 battles a day, all in a platoon. The last time I saw 3-5-7 with me top tier was before the MM change. The best MM I got since the MM change was full tier 8 battle.

I was proper 3-5-7 top in my AMX CDC last night for the first time in a long while. But I really wish I wasn't, awful match even by WG's current low standards. Full implosion in 2.5 minutes.

 

I will risk getting crucified for heresy now, but I would rather be bottom tier all the time but have semi-reliable (human) team mates.

Meaning you'd rather be carried all the time instead of doing it yourself once in a while?

Nope.

Meaning that I want to contribute to a team effort aimed at winning instead of mass suicide.

I can do more damage, etc., while bottom in a coherent team, and not top in a bot/child crowd.

The answer is simple - I don't play with my tier VIII tanks anymore.

 

I suggest you to do the same thing, because this tier is doomed.

Maybe every second day? It's obviously way more rare than it should be - any research (if it actually would have mattered) needs to be backed up by the replay analyzer. Problem is that being on top in a platoon is even more rare (which while still bad, is more of a 'feature' in terms of statistics), and I don't think the analyzer can filter for solo/platoons. 

 

Regardless I think 3-5-7 is inherently flawed due to the low number of top tiers, not to mention that in 12/15 games you are typically limited on what you can actually do. Three players effectively having the power to decide a battle, that leads to more variability (chance of the top tiers being off in class/equipment/player skill) - and more roflstomps. More top players leads to less variability, which at one point was something WG actually tried to fix.

Really? That's about what you should expect, especially with the occasional single- and two-tier battles.

It wasn't like that before and I'm very sure about it. It's impossible to grind any tier 8 in these conditions we have today. I had to grind AMX AC 48 and it was a very cancerous experience.
