Hello everybody, I would like to know how matchmaking works regarding arty because, as you can see from title, yesterday it happened: I was the only arty in the game. Now since matchmaking modification, but also in the past, I can't remember another game where I was the only arty. So is it supposed to be possible or was it kind of a matchmaking bug?

Classes can differ by one at the most.... That inc if there is only one arty one one team. Thus when there is none on the enemy team, the difference is still one. As pr the limit.

 

As the general rules says "If MM allows it", and it did. Rare, but it can still happen.

It seems to me that in the small hours, the MM can descend rarely-used code paths to make some sort of game from limited resources (palyers/vehicles/tiers). My thought is that was what happened.

I think that you were lucky. I wasn't recently be the only arty but often there is 1 against 2 artys, i think that they wouldn't want to throw you out from game and since there was less arty players at the moment, you had chance to play.

Had several variations of this: me as only LT in game (my counterpart was a MT), MT vs HT, etc. MM tries to stick to its main template, but sometimes (I guess in order to save queing time) will go to its second or even third protocol.
