So I came home from work, late night, server is low pop and I figure ill play a few games of WoT. Played 10 games, every single one of them I was bottom tier, matched against +2 opponents.

 

Thats just stupid, theres ZERO joy in these games. Make it so you have to wait 5 mins longer for a game but that you play against equal opponents. At MOST +1.

 

Ive completely stopped playing heavy tanks because of this, now I only play light tanks cause they are the least effected by this stupid matchmaking.

 

Its a shame, I wanted to play a few hours, but after 10 games id rater go watch some netflix. So sad.

 

edit: oh and the last 8 games I just suicided the opponents to get it over with, didnt feel like wasting hours on it. So its not really creating a pleasent experience for the other players either. Just all around a waste of time.

I don't want to wait 5 minutes for a battle, even 20 seconds is too long imho, it's boring. Also, I don't want to be wasting most of my booster time sitting in a queue.

Go for the enemy's bottom tier tanks, not top. Hang back, pick your fight...

While not incorrect, it does not really adress OP's issue - that being bottom-tier isn't very fun.

 

Of course, the top-tiers have fun beating up T8s - at least until the point where they realize that their fun is essentially governed by the matchmaker's ability to give them 'easymode' matches.

What if enemy decides to push your hang back? ... its just waste of time.

 

Waste of time trying to shoot something you cant pen. or waste of time "hanging back" and "picking your fights"

Due to this - being bottom tier most of the time - I too stopped playing heavies and tier 8 tanks in general. My stats will suffer as I've been a heavy player for a long time and am not accustomed to lights or paper meds, but I'd rather have fun over being molested by tier 10 goldspamming turds.

45 - 50 % you are in a + 2 games ; 35  - 40 % you are in a + 1 games and the rest of 10 - 15 % games you are the top tier .. WG says that is working very well ... No wonder why new players do not come into game and old ones just stopped playing ...

Listen Kiriath.

 

If you hate playing with opponents 2 tiers higher

Then play tier 10 or tier 9 or tier 8 prem mm tanks or go to tier 1. Alternatively fap from the back with arta.

 

Or delete the game alltogether.

 

Hope this helps.

Don't play Tier 8 then

That was smart.... so you actually only put in effort in 2 games

Thankfully, Frontline eased the pain of grinding shitcan tanks. 10 months ago I went through the VTU experience all the way. I just finished the 110 and eventhough it's heavy, the experience was identical. WG wonder why I don't pay for prem nowadays? Prem time combined with reserves and it's still crap.

 

:great:Keep it up...

There are only 3 +2 targets. So there are 12 other targets you can deal with. And it's not like you have to seek out the +2 and fight those. Hang back, learn where they are so you don't cross their guns unwanted. Even as a HT no one expects you to brawl with a Maus in a Tiger II. Roles changes with MM, so you don't have to go the HT line etc if you can't pen anything there. Support where you can, no point going to a place you are 100% useless. 

 

And wait 5 min to get +1? Then I would rather watch Netflix then wait that long each time tbh. 

 

 

Then again I have a mission to kill targets on my tier or higher. So I want +2 games now. And I don't get them. So activate that and it's fine and dandy.

Thanks for the replies guys. 

 

Its obvious that this is not intended, since when you play on a server with 50k+ pop the majority of the matchups are even tiered (in my experience anyway).

 

So this matching up different tiers is a solution to avoid having queues. 

 

My point just is, that I find no joy playing against higher tier opponents in heavy tanks, none. So what ill do when I get a string of shitty matchups like yesterday is that ill just yolo it, die in 30 secs and start a new game. And ultimately if I keep getting the bad matchups just quit and do something else.

 

I just dont see how this can be intentional? 

 

The solution of playing tanks with preferential matchmaking is okay I guess, If I wanted to play the same few premium tanks 24/7. But I like to try different tanks, ive played on and off since 2014 or something, my highers tier tank is 8, I like to play random stuff.

 

The solution of grinding out a few tier 10 tanks are valid though. I guess I should focus on that. Then again, aint this supposed to be a game where we play to have fun? The idea of grinding 200+ games in the same tank just to get the next one just never stroke me as interesting. 

 

Anyway. Just rambling at this point, nevermind.

I was playing a combination of Tier 6 and 8 but point taken.
