Since i dissabled grand battles and encounter mode, when i want to play tier X, now its not rare to stay 2 minutes sometimes

3 minutes waiting to enter a game, and the most strange thing is that i see around 400 / 500 players also waiting.

 

is anyone experiencing the same? is it because the mm is oriented to grand battles or encounter mode? 

 

*i really dont want to play thouse modes because they turn arty even more anoying.

and  the next bs thread from you - im not suprised

 

encounter and assault disabled and even games with arty let you wait hardly over 1min

 

grand battles happens so few i doubt they got any major impact

 

i wont even ask why so gamemode shouldturn arty more annoying in your strange trail of thoughts well knowing you would be unwilling/unable to answer it anyways

Please dont spout nonsense. I experience aswell long time wait times in tier X tanks (up to 5 min). I guess its a bug in mm algorithm, because if requeue i can get instant match.

I have GB on. Not seen it more then 5 times since it arrived. So I doubt it has that much of an impact.

OP is absolutely correct. I've also has seen this and experienced it myself.

Spoiler

I have no idea what is causing it. Maybe they are trying to "ease off" the Tier 8 MM, but after today's credit making session that I've had for just over 2 hours, I've had 3 out of 24 games where I was Top Tier, and one of them was a full blown Tier 8 matchup. If that's their idea of easing off and fixing Tier 8 MM, I prefer to go back to the old MM system.

 

P.S. : Have Grand Battles and Assault turned off. I loath GB and just not a big fan of Assault since early days.

Well, those pesky tVIII tanks must have found a new place to hide from MM...

It's just the algorithms taking a while to decide if you get to win or lose. No biggy.

Yup, noticed it too, 2 min queues on average for Tier 10. Seems really weird.

I also wonder if this is happening because they are trying to improve somehow the tier 8 mm? 

 

not placing tier X's into games so quickly, so all the tier 8s in queue (majority) wont get bottom tier so much? 

 

i also noticed that most of the time i play tier X games only (wich is perfectly fine for me...)

I dont have this issue, i didnt notice anyway. 

For people who have long queu times,  do you have one or more gamemodes disabled? ( except GB).

IMO that's the direct consequence of matchmaker prioritizing 3-5-7 team composition, when there's too many tier-10 tanks. Since it needs 12 lower tier tanks for his preferred combo and there isn't enough of them available, tier-10 tanks are waiting so long.

 

OTOH if you play tier 10, thus never be low tier, you pay for that privilege with long waiting... ;)

Maybe its something related to that, I have all enabled ( except GB).

Or its jsut me not noticing the queu times since I tab out and watch some youtube or go on the forums during the waiting.

My queue times are pretty fine for my TX battles. Sometimes i got to wait longer (1+ minute), but only had one case that exceeded 2 minutes & that turned into a timeout session (5+ minute wait time kciks you out the queue)

I do have all modes enabled (including Grand Battles)

Good, maybe us Tier 8 players can have a normal battle for once in our life without some triple E100/WZ-111-5A unicum platoons steamrolling powercreeped tier 8 tanks?

I did a few times in my WZ-120-1FT and STA-2, every 20 battles i get 5 battles that are so bad you get a stomach ulcer :teethhappy: like 15-0 bad or top tiers doing one shot and dying bad
