Don´t know if I have been lucky or if WG actually adjusted the MM without mentioning it in the patch notes? Or did they mention it and I missed it somehow?

 

Played a lot of TX trying to get into GB when I noticed pretty much all TX games was full TX. Didnt think too much about it until I tried out the newly buffed T54 Proto and noticed I was getting a lot of top tier games. This morning I played a few T8 games and out of 10 or so game only 1 was a TX game,

 

Even had 2 games in the Rev as top tier. In a row. :amazed:

 

Anyone else noticed the same or is this just a fluke? Wouldnt be surprised if WG actually tweaked tier 8 to lessen the bottom tier games as anything hurting T8 prem sales would be bad for them. Also wouldnt surprise me if the forgot to mention it since it would be admitting they messed up with the new MM.

Same here mate,yesterday i played 20 battles with skorpion G and 5-6 times i was top tier and 4-5 times i played tier 9 battles.

 

Before update i played only tier 10 battles,10-15 times in row so i dont know is this luck or they actually tweaked tier 8.

 

Also i cant find anything about mm in new update but as you already said it wouldnt surprise me if the forgot to mention it.

More likely an unintended consequence of grand battles.

Rather an intended consequence? Wasn't one of the goals of the GB to siphon off a lot of tier 10 tanks from the queue and help tier 8?

Still the same for platoons though, always bottom tier pretty much.

 

Solo, did get SOME t10 matches in my tier 8 tanks, but not as many as before.

Dont think that is it. TX seems packed since TX = Full TX games now.

That's how it seemed before the patch too.

Interesting...

I spent some of yesterday grinding at low tiers, but did a couple of hours 'tooning, between III and IX, mostly Vi and VII, and now you mention it, a fairly even top/mid/bottom spread...

Only a couple of weeks ago, I was crying salty tears over a solid run of 13 matches as bottom tier, regardless of what I was playing...

 

That said, I have no TX's, and haven't been leaning on the IX's much, which may skew the experience, but even so -

we tend to notice things only when they seem 'wrong', do we not?

Find myself agreeing that it Feels* like there's een a tweak to MM, and not just at VIII-X...

 

*strictly subjective, and IMHO, natch ;)

I am not sure, I got bottom tier 5 times in a row as Type 64 platoon. Happened even more times when queuing solo.

It was just a fluke.

 

Activated some creditboosters and played 23 games mostly in 252, Skorpion, 112, SP and Rev.

 

- Only 1 tier 6 game.

- 2 full tier 8 games.

- 4 tier 9-7 games

- 16 tier 10 games

 

Worth noting: All pref MM games where tier 9 games without tier 7s. Patriot is still the strongest creditmaker of the Prems I used. 

 

Its really a shame WG broke tier 8. I used to find credit/crew/XP grinding pretty fun using a different premiums. Now its just an exercise in frustration as you are constantly bottom tier in the mercy of your TX to carry the game (which they seldom do). Credit grinding is even more frustrating as you have to be careful with the "2" key giving you even less impact on the outcome. 

 

WG needs to realize the new MM is a failure. Either revert it completely and go back to the drawing board or admit its a problem and start working on a solution.

That's the anti-stat-padding protection working as intended.
