Well I wanted to improve the ridiculously old MM section of the Wiki and remembered that vehicles from tier 8 up are now grouped so that AMX 50 100s would not be matched against O-HOs, but against softer Heavy tanks, etc..

 

I looked for the article on the WoT-website and found it (https://worldoftanks...r-improvements/) however it was not up to date and as it seemed that WG wanted the Wiki to be more up to date, (cuz they just recently made a post on the Website about it) I figured it would be a good Idea to ask the support to maybe get some more recent information; well thats what happened: [I had to recreate the text, to comply with the forum rules] 

 

 

Yep they didnt even read the first line properly, they just read "Matchmaking" - comletely ignored some highly unusual words about cliche "Skrew you WG facking MM alweys put me low tier"-Tickets, like "improve" or "Wiki" and decided to copy-paste an anwser that had absolutly nothing to do with my question and instantly closed the ticket so that I didnt even had the chance to reply and tell them about that high quality copy-paste anwser that totally answered my question. 

 

Cheers and screw the WG support and wiki. :medal:

This feature have never been implemented (or it was really quickly removed) as it caused disbalances in battles as far as I know.

Why even try to update the wiki? WG is obviously looking for idiots willing to waste their time for no compensation, doing something WG or CCs should be doing in the first place....

I thought it was clip gun's... as if your team has a clip gun on top. The enemy team will too. But an HT is still an HT. And as far as I know... the game doesn't differentiate between a support HT and a super heavy sadly.

I doubt they're even going to acknowledge that the Wiki exists. It seems to be pretty much forgotten.

 

It's worth keeping in mind that the Wiki is among the first results on any search for a tank - so make sure to keep those articles well updated. Wouldn't want anyone to be misled, would we?

This article claims that the MM would differentiate much more (according to this article heavies are put in three different groups); but WG also claimed with the new MM introduction, that the MM would put you in Top-Tier battles if u get into low-tier match after low-tier match, yet they announced a few weeks ago that that feature had not been implemented and will take development time till Christmas.

They definitely do, they just made a post on the front page about it.

Considering some of the replies I have had when opening a ticket, I wouldn't be surprised if the 1st line support was done by bots. I don't mean low skilled players like me but actual computer programs mimicking humans and responding to keywords with standard responses.

It did, and they made a big deal about introducing it.  But I suspect it has been quietly dropped.

Remember. Wiki is PR tool for WG. Not a fact-platform. Bear this in mind when creating content.

Dude, don't you know you are not allowed to show that Support is a bunch of completely useless bunch? You can't post their answers here because it will illustrate they just try to fob you off as quickly as possible.

I'll give you the most recent information about that feature: It's not working at all. Seriously. At the beginning they tried to get it working somewhat, but pretty sure they disabled or abandoned it after a few weeks already.

Pretty much this. If I would be happy with the game, maybe, but in this state, ofc I wont waste a singel second doing something WG should do by themselfs in teh first place.
