I really hope not that the matchmaker is still weighting some vehicle types like lights, arty etc in any special way. This is an old mechanic that was based on old game mechanics.

It is changed. Vehicle weight is gone from what I recall. Vehicles are now matched against themselves when able. Failing that, their class & sometimes subclass are taken into account (and tiers as well). So lights get matched versus lights etc etc. Heavies against heavies; If enough folks are queued it takes subclass into account. My armored T28 TD gets matched often with other armored TD's (usually with another T28). Happens often enough that I know at least one tank I'll be fighting when taking out the T28 for fun & that is that I'll fight another T28 (or failing that, a TS-5 TD - seems MM matching considers them similar for matching purposes)

Sometimes this subclass matching is screwy tho. My KV-4 when toptier/midtier gets often matched against the armored pref MM tanks (IS-6, KV-5, 112) at high populations (because there aren't enough KV-4 tanks in the queue I guess)

 

Note that it aren't hard written rules (like the old weight system) The more folks online the more it can adhere to matching same/similar tanks. The less folks online the more MM breaks down (see late night / early morning teams)

Its still in the wiki though, maybe they just didnt remove it from there?

 

However I still think there is some weight, i mean especially lights seem to go up in tier.....

I just didn't know what to make of it. It's like coming on here and simply stating "I hope my partner makes steak and chips for dinner as bangers and mash is so outdated". :)
