It's not really an issue if you properly take your time to learn to play and to get some experience. Then it becomes a good source of variation and tactical depth.
Only works with a proper balance, though...

Hint: The goal of the game isn't to reach tX...

Why are you trying to fight three tier 10 in your tier 8? You have tier 10 of your own, it's their job to fight the enemy tier 10. Your job is to help them.

Shoot full gold, or free xp better gun when you hit ~tier8 stock grind. If you need tracks to mount the better gun / turret, you can buy the suspension equipment that buffs your load limit by +10%.

 

Stock grinds are pain at tier 8 and 9, if you don't want to just pay for free xp, save up and don't blow it on anything that's not a gun at those tiers.

Unless all those +2 tier tanks are Type 5s, Mauses ( or should I say Mice?), and 430Us, then you are more than fine. Being stock is a whole different matter. But when you have the top gun, you be a support tank. No one has forced you to fight those T9s on your own.You have a role to fulfill and so do your teammates. Don't try to carry for everyone. You can't. No one can.

Some tanks are terrible regardless of what they face, and can't even bully lower tiers. While others can't even pen an equal tier HT on the HT lane fully elite. Some tanks are terrible vs +2 stock, but great once elite vs anything on the HT lane.

 

But on this? That stock suffering is or less payment for the 3K DPM you get elite.

So lower tiers have more HP?

That's the reason why the MM has always sucked and always will: to capitalize on players' passion for the game expecting them to pay to relief the frustration.

And it works, as disgusting as it may sound.

But WG has never been a gaming company, maybe in its infancy won't argue about that, but over the years it has become a pure marketing company where accountants make the decisions.

Not sure whether they even still have a dev team worthy of that name.

The joy of +2 matchmaking is that my KV cannot meet T9 tanks any more. Even if one of my most amazing battles was fought in such a match.

Can you come back with the same complaint when you are tier 8 in a tier 6 game?  Until then, typical self-entitled whine.

And bring back that brutal cannons like the tanks had in that times. And bring back the old open maps, where the small ones had not to fight in a shitty tube against the top tiers.

 

For example:

Pz4 had panther gun

T34-85 had t44 gun

And so on.

 

They have changed the mm after the cryings of the community, but they also nerfed all tanks. The reason is: they have to keep the unfairness in the game, because the players have to be pushed to pay more, and more money if they want to be succesfull.

 

Fuckin pay to win.

Choose a tier X tank.

Playing in a tier +-2 match will be fun.

It won't change until all players start to desert when they see MM+2. I'm sure the fix will arrive in 1 day then.

Or if the game gets bought by Tencent.. Else not too much chances since MM+2 is the major motivation to spend gold in game.

Well I'm impressed. I don't think I could fight a Type 5, IS7 and Super Conq in a stock Caernarvon. I'd struggle with one at a time to be fair though so hats off to you!

yeah but you will never be able to achieve that.

now they changed the matchmaker into forcing him to put at fewer +2 matches for t8 players......this leads to constantly being +2 lowtier in any t6 vehicles :D
but hey, most premium tanks are t8 so i see what wg did there :D

i would rather wait twice or three times as long for my matches and have them only -+1

 

+2 is such a dumb thing especially in a game that is SO bad balanced like wot, even encountering a defender in a tiger 2(stock or not) is just awful, but who tf came up with +2 in such a horribly balanced game?!
