Hello ladies and gents,

Some of you may noticed that I am not around much more like I used to.

yeah I am one of the guys who quits playing without even feel the need to open a thread sayin "Goodbye wot"

 

anyway,

I quit because of the new template MM,

and stopped lurking in forums for a while too...

 

How is it now? how about the update which was planned to tweak the MM a little bit?

is it still horrible for tier 8? mostly for toons?

Got a bit better, but still far away from perfect.
Yesterday I played five tVIII matches and had at least one toptier and two same tier matches. The session before that I played a few more matches and got mostly bottom tier ones...

Tier 8 toons are more viable now. Not that much,but now you have the pleasure to be toptier now.

Its the same for me always bottom tier. IS6 is long abandoned since the new MM.

In tier 8 nowadays I get more single-tier matches.

Well, it is a bit better now, at least that is my impression.

Been grinding (and still do) Tiger 2 and Pershing. I don’t recall being thrown into T10 games in an extent that I got annoyed, like it was the case before.

Unfortunately. I have stopped uploading my games for a quite while now so cannot pull out the figures, but it just feels better.

Log in, play 20 games with a T8 and get conclusions from the first hand.

You have been missed.

still pure horror in t8.. but quite good in t7, t9-t10. Platoon mm is a bit better but still nowhere close to what we had before these "improvements". Also we got several new t8 prems for 40eur;)

Things have improved a bit. The MM now takes into account the number of top tier superheavies (Maus, Type 5 etc) and tries to balance those. It's still not ideal, but in general it works.

Latest patch did make T8 MM a bit better, no more constant matches in T9 & TX, you actually get some midtier matches too & toptier. So more variety. Still, it's more mid & bottom so far, but doubt that can change due to the fixed pyramid distribution templates.

 

They did something bad to the chat/friendlist servers tho.. they keel over rather often since the latest patch.

Hey there. The MM seems barely tolerable now, as before when you tooned you could expect to be bottom tier all the damn time.

Now i did tooned a bit with some forumites and dingers and the MM gave us some mid tier games and even some top tier ones pretty regularly.

 

Playing solo is a coin flip, had days when the mm was  quite decent, had days when the mm was horrible and getting bottom tier after bottom tier. Still  better then it was before.

I started playing again a few months ago after a long lay off [playing WoWS], and T8 just seems to be fodder for T9/10. Not really concerned TBH as I am still playing ;)

Played my FCM 50t for a few battles the other day and was top tier in a 3/5/7 battle a couple of times.

From what I have noticed I would say they forgot to implement the changes.
