The news of upcoming changes is welcome - we've been asking and waiting far too long for major improvements.  There is still one big fallacy in the theory that if you are in the low tier of e.g.  a tier 8-tier 9- tier 10 battle you 'get to fight the enemy tanks of your own tier'. You can't choose who you end up fighting in most cases, especially on the frequent corridor type maps.  If I play a tier 8 medium on a city map I can pick a flank and hope that it isn't an enemy tier 10 heavy that's coming the other way....if it is, I can try to support from behind my team's heavies if they are with me...otherwise it's run away time.

So basically nothing new, just another SOON ™ announcement. What an impressive speed almost as fast as the buff of OBJ 279e, a buff they could do on a very small amount of players actually having the tanks.

... but still ... here is my opinion ...

 

Well, WG, no matter what new MM you will bring to us (the players), there will be always players who will complain about the MM ...

... unless you balance the teams by the players' abilities/skills (at least for the high tier tanks or even only for the Heavy Tanks), good players vs good players, bad players vs bad players, etc.

 

The thing that the players hate the most is the lost battles because of of a few Bad Players.

The chart makes no sense to me, is it supposed to change when you click the buttons above?

Oh, and my browser does not support the video format! when did that change?

 The technical part of the architecture is ready and has successfully passed through testing. In the near future, after some extra improvements and technical tweaks, we will launch a new matchmaker on one of the "live" servers.

First of all, we will check the stability and resiliency of the new matchmaker in a real server environment, as well as collect real data on the distribution of tanks in battles. And, of course, we'll put some finishing touches to the template settings.

After testing is completed, we'll carefully analyze the results obtained and your feedback. If we make sure that the new matchmaker changes the quality of battles for the better, we will launch it on other servers around the world.

 

Isn't the new template system in testing on the SEA servers since the 13th of November already? Or does this mean that the devs are nearing the feedback analyzing stage?

I am looking forward to WG's proposal of implementing 'bots' into random battles at quieter periods as I feel this will drastically improve the quality of my teams:trollface:.

 

 

 

.......trouble is.....this jest could turn out to be true, especially at weekends:unsure:

I just hope that you guys are better at balancing matchmaking than drawing charts.

Thank god you're finally doing something. :) I would say that tier 8 and tier 10 mm are the problems. Tier 8 tier and tank type wise, tier 10 player skill and tank type wise.

I hope that near future means like a few months. I expect the new MM to be on all of the live servers not later than April.

when players are playing a certain tier more than other tiers, and population is cramped in tier 10s, there is only so much you can do.

 

Perhaps they will fix tier 8s, and penaltize tier 6s, who will pick all the burden?

I dont know.

I currently see current MM, as a necessary evil, not satisfied from it, but not really blaming WG for it either. Only by changing the whole game balancing (like grand battles did, to take away the load of tier 10s) can the tier-pyramid be reversed.

If anything the odd numbered tiers will be the ones to pick up the slack (e.g. tier 9 for 10 and tier 7 for 8) and will get worse. Whereas atm the odd numbered tiers (especially tier 9) get the better deal.

Replace +/-2 with just +/-1. I just solved the MM PUZZLE AND MYSTERY THAT YOU'RE WORKING SO HARD FOR YEARS NOW.

 

You don't even have to pay me for the idea, really
