I have had few months break until recently. Been playing some games and now especially last weekend noticed even in prime time T5 matchmaking was taking surprisingly long (was playing D-Day missions with historical vehicles) and I don't want even mention B2's MM time... Earlier I liked to play game or two when drinking morning coffee before leaving to work, tried it today and when I had waited over 2 minutes with Pz IV H I thought no games for me this morning.

 

What I recall usually it was quite insta MM when clicked battle and in mornings if you had wait over 30 seconds it was a long wait. Of course summer is here so players might have something else to do but if I put on my robe and wiz...tinfoil hat is the low mid tier population reason for no-effort T5 premium and basically dirt cheap preorder T5 med ?

the reason is imo the introduction of blockable maps.

that makes the matchmaking all the more difficult.

one good thing in this game WAS the near instant matchmaking.

now it is rare for me to find a match in less than 1 minutes very often its 2 minutes.

in 1000 battles wg wastes 17 Hours of MY time with this and i do not even have a map blocked.

i can live with much of the other crap wg does but im not staring at matchmaking cues.

ill do my personal goal of researching all tanks (pretty close now) and if the matchmaking times are not fixed i am out of here.

People whine about maps and mm and would agree to wait more for better mm, yet, when wg did that, people whine for waiting.
I haven't found any major delays. Maybe just personal opinion.

in tier 6-7 i see delays up to 1.30 minutes lately but that's the highest ive seen, and only at those two tiers.

Last night i had 5-6 games where the waiting was more than a minute at tier 7 .

Haven't had any delays more than 10-15 secs in tiers 8-9.

But yeah, prolly it is a result of the  combo of map blocking and MM changes

So why doesnt this delay happen in higher tiers? And the delay isn't like few seconds, its over a minute.

 

My guess is WG added also some other MM magic to increase queue time, maybe some balancing. Who knows.

There is an event on that has rewarded a tier 5 TD that everyone want's to play. Going by the TD population in wait vs my mid tiers. I suspect that's a huge factor to it mixed in with the recent MM changes. As I see 3 to 5 M10's on each team even in a +1 game as a tier 6 TD.

Personally, I am OK with the 1 -- 1.5 minute wait time.

I really prefer the new MM, and I am willing to wait so I am not low tier 80% of the time.

Also, a number of Dingers like to platoon with the PZ.IV H, so I sent you a Player Mail.

First of all this wasn't meant to be complaint of any sort, just pondering that why matchmaking times have skyrocketed in few months. What games I've played I found improved MM very, very much more enjoyable than before and if it takes little longer to get MM like this sure, why not.
