OMG I'VE NOT READ IT YET BUT IS THIS TRUE? 

 

THEY ARE MENTIONING THIS AGAIN?

 

ITS A MIRACLE!

 

A CHRISTMAS  END OF JULY MIRACLE 

 

edit -

 

For once i am happy with you WG <3 

 

Any chance to also buff the KV-5 Prem pen as well though? Just a little bit like on the IS-6 would help quite a a lot for that tank

This is a draft solution that we’ll be testing soon.

Normal soon or soon™?

Why bundle? Christmas gambling with boxes is more profitable for them, ppl spent way more then 100EUR to get the t59 :teethhappy:

 We tried to artificially lower the probability of getting preferential Premiums in +1 Tier and same-tier battles. However, this created more problems by increasing the number of single-tier battles and waiting times for not only Tier VIII and IX but tanks tiered VI-X.

 

I don't see an issue with waiting times, compared to WoWs (and especially) WoWp, they're minuscule. But why exactly are single tier battles a bad thing?

Thank you

Maybe finally consider +/-1? 

 

I play really late at night sometimes and I never wait more than a minute and a half for a game. It's instant at peak times. I'd be willing to wait another minute for better MM and you're insulting the player base when you say the wait times will get too long. You think people's attention spans are that short?

So the tests will be carried out on the super test server where the average gold use is slightly higher than the game server's 5%?

the problem with the Jg.Tg 8,8 is that you need to play in close combat because 203, or possibly soon, 212 pen is nowhere near enough to snipe reliably with at equal, and higher tier tanks, meaning you need to be up in peoples face, and to actually do a significant amount you need to be exposed firing away constantly and the terrible hull armour you die pretty much instantly. only works if you can get hull down but even then the flat super structure gets penned easily by prem rounds.

How are the IS6/kv5/112/wz111 supposed to deal with tier 10's with 182 pen standard ammo? Even the 225 pen premium ammo is lacking.

This is not a change that is reasonable.

 

Simple solution for these tanks:

IS6 gets BL9.

KV5 gets 107mm top gun from KV4.

112/WZ111 get 100mm top gun from 110.

 

EZ Peazy Lemon Squeezy, and I am quite certain that there will be minimal BS from players.

They are and you (me as well, I have to add) are an exception. If we compare it to browsing web, at 4 seconds of loading 25 % of people leave, at 10 seconds it's 40 %. Of course, WoT can afford a little bit more (since people expect waiting), but not by much. Cross the "final line" just a bit and you'll be losing enough people that the queue will be slowing down - further losing more people and prolonging the time and losing more people and so on, in a slow spiral of death. It's partially (not the only factor, but it helped a lot) the cause of death of AW on NA/EU.

​I think you misunderstood the article, the preferential matchmaking is staying.

They wont be, Read the article.

 

" Improve the experience for preferential tanks while keeping the preferential matchmaking parameter and their unique characteristics intact."

AHA!!!

 

I was seriously concerned.  If pref MM is staying, then I don't even mind if they don't touch em at all.

They have to buff them to offset p2w powercreep and fail 3/5/7MM.
