After a few good weeks, MM became sh*t again.

A few weeks ago, I was really surprised how well the MM was working. The number of matches -2 and +2 was balanced, and the most matches were the same tier (in my opinion - the most interesting setup).

 

Now the pain of constant +2 battles returns which is really annoying (except for battles in which you have chosen TD or SPG)

This is WoT

RNG decides

Skill comes a not very close second

Skill is to negate that rng as well as possible. That is one of the reasons why some win more than 60% of their games and you less than 45%.

I think the new MM depends on the amount of people online and playing.

If there aren't enough you're more likely to get the +2 / -2 situations

I found that if you play during prime time (6-9pm where I am in the UK usually) I tend to get same tier match ups a lot but any time outside that I get a lot of +2

1. Does this have anything to do with the MM, which is- IMHO- a legitimate observation on how we are all still frequently bottom tier?


 

2. Your skill comes 16th, after every other player on your team as, left to your own devices- you would probably lose all the time.

Sorry to hear that and I think I might be to blame.

After quite a long break I just started playing again this weekend, which might have broken the MM since it does not know where to place me and my inconsistent playstyle....

Even if all the enemy team drove at you backwards having already used all their ammo to kill your team mates?

 

It could happen!

 

 

(But yes, bringing RNG to a MM discussion is like trying to give out free hugs during an MMA fight)

 

(Also, you'd probably run out of ammo before you could kill all the enemy and it would rely on ramming or turn into a draw.)&gt

^ this.

 

Had what felt like 90% same tier matchups last weekend.

Fewer +-2 than ever before, seems like totally opposite experience from what the OP says.

And yes that's all anecdotal, but I play a lot...

I was the same, a lot more T8 same tier games over the last week than is usual

 

RNG decides

 

..although I have been playing heavier more powerful T8 tonks over the last week

I noticed that as soon as I played my T8 lights again it was T10 T10 T9 T10

 

Soooo... may depend on the tonks you play

 

Most T9 and T10 players play overpowered meds and heavies so the system will probably be looking for lights from the lower tiers to pad things out in a +2 matchup

Not just people, but classes. As that's not the same either each day or even week. So depending on what you play vs the rest, you might see more +0 games, or more +2 games. Changing server might even help if you feel you get bad MM too much in terms of class spread pr team or even +2 etc vs what you play. But WG doesn't show tier population anymore in queue after a mod came to ruin that fun.

 

As most of the new lines of late have been LT's. Something you notice when I play high tier LT's vs Meds in terms of how often they see +2 or LT heavy games etc.

You must have been very unlucky then.

I suspect there are a huge number of Tier 8 premium tanks in the EU player population at the moment that are giving the matchmaker indigestion.

MM was hardly ever been good.

I very much like the same tier MM we have in Frontlines tho. +1/-1 would also be great. Just stop that +2/-2, yikes!
