past few days grinding my 5/1 mark getting it to second and hopefully 3rd today, I have had a lot of top tier 3/5/7, 5/10 tier 9 games, and full tier 8. Don't have the exact number but I have experienced far less tier 10. Pretty much the whole time I've played the 5/1 it's been like this.

 

could  just be me being super lucky, after all it is impossible for every tier 8 in the queue to be bottom tier every time, but it does feel like something has changed slightly

I watched you last night and it seemed okish.. but -2 matchmaker doesent exist for sure. dunno why WG are lieing about the whole +2 -2 thing. cant remember the last time i saw 2 tiers lower.

I must say I've noticed the same tendency towards better MM in the 5/1.

Had the same experience this weekend while grinding credits on my S1. If it is a fluke or not I don't know.

Perhaps less players playing tier 8 tanks?

 

I virtually stop playing that tier and do my grinds (new tank lines and silver) on strongholds. 

 

But i do remember reading on armoredpatrol (i think) that the DEVs were tweaking the MM algorythm to correct the inbalance on the amount of battles played as bottom tier

Played ~10 games in my Tier V italian medium last night and only 2 of them were as bottom tier in 3/5/7, the rest was evenly dividev between +/-1 and tier V only. So yes, definitely not 70% bottom tier in 3/5/7 matchup.

Played 4 games on the trot in my E25 yesterday, and was top tier in each one.  Statistically insignificant, but ... true story.

I kept track of my last T8 games and the results were actually okay.

 

Progetto:

14 Games

0 - T8 only

4 - T8 (3/5/7)

4  -T9 (3/5/7)

2 - T9 (5/10)

4 - T10

 

Lorraine:

20 Games

5 - T8 only

1 - T8 (3/5/7)

3  -T9 (3/5/7)

2 - T9 (5/10)

9 - T10

 

Standard game mode only, regular server times, no platoon. Not enough battles for statistic relevance, but now you know.

Haha yeah, Dava in the KV-4 me in the Caravan, we even went on separate flanks. 10/11 kills combined can't remember and we did like 8k damage together.

Bet the enemy team had fun......

I have a very stong feeling it depends of the tank you play.

For instance I am 8 times out of 10 top tiers with my Emil II, and much less with the T-10.

They are both tiers 9 heavies, so they should have the same stats.

Same with the tiers 6 japanese HT IV, almost never top tiers / versus much more often with the KV-2.
