I know you love 3/5/7 from a wallet point of view (screw the players), but even 3/5/7 has statistical probabilities. I was looking to grind T-44 tonight so put on boosters and it was brutal in terms of MM. Rather than previous times going on gut feel - after the first few - I went back, checked and then kept tabs.

 

All based on 3/5/7 unless stated otherwise

-2

-1

-2

-2

-2

-2

-1 (5/10)

Single tier (counted as bottom tier for dramatic effect)

-2

-1

-1 (5/10)

-1 (5/10)

 

Ignoring the single tier match - that's 11 matches with 9 bottom tier, and 2 mid tier.

Not once +1 (5/10)

Not once +2 (3/5/7)

 

Yet you wonder why players are exasperated.

 

I would personally like to thank you for this wonderful grind ...

The later it is, the less chance you have as more and more players move to tier 9 and X to play. So considering when you posted this. I would be amazed if I even saw one top tier game in any tier 8 at that time. Thus why you hear no one says "tonight" and "tier 8 grind" in the same sentence. Those are best done before 9 PM, not 1 AM, even more so if you play on EU2, even before 3-5-7 was a thing.

That's Life at Tier 8...      I live there, I have the Basement Apartment with a View of the Wall nextdoor....        It's not a Bad Nieghborhood, though the Nieghbors at Tier 10 can be a bit Obnoxious at times throwing All Nighters 'til the Break of Noon....

 

Just Patiently waiting for the Frontline Recreation Room to be Finished and the Nieghbors won't be quite as Bothersome.....

But he is talking facts.

 

Anybody that has spent some time with the game knows 3/5/7 MM rails tier 8s in the arse without any lube.

At the moment there are actually even more chance for tier 8's to be top or at least middle tier due to all the buffed PM tanks being played, still tier 8 MM and 3-5-7 sucks a lot.

Imagine how disappointed and astonished my toon mate and I were last night. We chose T6 mediums and what happened?

Yep. in battle with T8's.

I said to my mate, "This is impossible. According to the forum, T8's never get top tier".

Comeon WG, admit it, you screwed up that one.       :trollface:

The top-tier tanks are having fun, though, that's the important part. How could Wargaming, in all their wisdom, imagine that there'd be problems arising? :)

What I love most about 3-5-7 is that the explanation is either 'wallet' and/or 'incompetence'.

You cant count single tiered games as bottom, if you play tier 8 alot you live for single tiered games. But in general, yep thats the way it is and yes it sucks.

Yet, yesterday all my tier VI games were bottom tier matched with Tier VIII and i played 14-15 games - so even worse than what you describe.

Weird thing was that, after some point, i platooned with a guy and then,for 5 matches only once we had a Tier VIII match - all others were either same tier or -1.

go figure with WG...

Because when you started here you had lot of post may be?

Harassing/flamming at 5K posts is better for sure...

I think the problem is not enough people play tier 10 because if they did then there would be more full TX and TX+T IX battles. And the reason for not playing TX is obvious, Most tanks have armor immune to standard rounds so you have to fire full premium ammo and Only a handful of tanks are really worth playing. The rest are just under powered. And when the battle ends, if you don't have a premium account and if you did semi well, you have a bill for -50K credits

Yeah ... the match maker is great fun at tier VIII. I only wonder who are those lucky tier X tanks. Whenever I play tier X it's a tier X only battle and very seldom a tier IX and X game.

I have been playing T6 for the past 3 days and I tell I rarely face T8 since they all get fed to T IX and T X tanks

3-5-7 is just terrible. 

 

Then after all these tier 8 battles being bottom, i would in anger just start playing my M53/M55 then im top tier half the battles i play.

Why would you put a tier 9 arty as 1 of 3 top tier tanks, makes no sence at all.
