Crew training in the progresso, only seeing tier x games. WTF WG? 

 

I don't mind a challenge occasionally, but this is no incentive to play.

 

:(

Three games in a row the other night I was top tier in my T-44 in 3/5/7 battles. It confused me so much I'm scared to go back into the game in case it was all a dream. :ohmy:

To answer your question: No!

Tier 8 also sometimes sees tier 9 battles and if Stars align right also tier 8 battles but it's rare.

Thanks to 3/5/7 template system.

For me the biggest issues in the game due to tier 8 being/were credit farming tanks

Naw, my stock Cent l regularly gets top tier spot when 3-5-7. Fun. Much carry with that 150 alpha 170 pen.

No, but it will mostly see tier 10 battles due to the template system.

No, unless you buy Fort Knox package, then you get to be top tier at least once in your next session

Well, i have a session stats tracker mod in the garage and when i do some farming with my tier 8 premiums the battle tier is usually between 9.3-9.6, so yes tier 8 mostly fight higher tiers.

They do have a gamemode for that: it's called Frontline (available May 7th)

Maybe you play in a 3man Platoon. I have seen this if i play with my friends in a 3man Platoon than we get most of the time low tier but in a 2man it still works normal and we get all Matches (Top/Mid/Low).

From what I notice, it fluctuates alot.

Some days it's TX or go home in your T8 tanks, other days the MM is more varied. Still plenty of TX (thanks to the MM templates) but you get some T9 (5-10) & T8 (full T8) matches too, & occasionally a 3-5-7 match where you are toptier (oddly it seems 3-5-7 where T8 is midtier seems to be rarer then that, 5-10 with T8 toptier is darn rare too)

 

PS: KV-4 being toptier in 3-5-7 reveals how broken that template is; can stroll around racking in the damage & blocked damage in such matches. Don't wanna know what it is in better HT's.

They need to change the template for tier 8.  

 

I had a 2-4-9 game as bottom tier and it was actually kind of enjoyable. 

2 tier 10 meant broken tanks / bad players didn't have that much influence as 3 would have.

4 tier 9 also has broken tanks...the less the better

9 tier 8 means you have a chance to win with numbers. 

 

It's always a 2 vs 1 situation between tiers.

 

One downside is that a 3 man tier 10 toon will never see tier 8 but 5-10 MM should be enough compensation for that. They are always top tier after all.

Just to verify. Nothing has changed as of today. Played 10 games in TP53 tier 8 polish tank. 4 tier 9 games 6 tier 10 games. You get outgunned, out spotted, out armoured. It is outrageous they can fix this. Tier 8 is the most broken tier in all game. Easier to play 9 and 10. But grinding you have to have between 50 and 100 games in a tank, so you are forced to play as low-tier 90 % of the time.

It's not just T8 that suffers in 3-5-7 - Went on a run of 10 Consecutive battles as bottom tier in 3-5-7 in my T6 heavy's. Incredible fun facing IS3/6/Defenders. T150's are made to be flankers kappa.

 

3-5-7 is just as broken when T6 is top tier btw, Deal with the red teams T6's and press W for the win.

I keep one tier 8 tank around for any of my clan mates who want to play higher tiers.

Since I do not plan to give any more money to WG, climbing the higher tiers is uneconomical for me.

And quite frankly, I prefer Seal Clubbing.

Tier 8 always sees tier 10 and tier 6 always sees tier 8.  Figure that out if you can.
