Hi there,

I'm a simple man with stupid questions:

 

How can I identify Pref MM tanks ingame? And in case there is no way to do this: Why is such a fundamental information missing?

 

Cheers

Machine

Preferential MM tanks are very easy to identify.

With them you constantly get into battles against +1 tier higher tanks.

How can I identify Pref MM tanks ingame?

 

 

 

The name of the tank on the loading screen works for me .

Thanks for your input so far. Maybe my question was unclearly phrased. I would like to know if there is a way to identify pref mm tanks INGAME.

Why? what difference would it make to you? You are dealt a hand in the MM randomly, how would identifying them make a difference to your gameplay?

Memorize the chart I linked,

See tank names ingame - done.

It's a strange question

Out of curiosity why would you want to know the answer?

I can see why it might be useful if buying, but in game???

Because it would be nice to know before buying a tank.

 

It is another fault by WG to not make it clearly visible in the game.

Want to have detail stats? Got to website

Want to know effective armor? Go to website

Want to see tank rewards progress? Got to website

Want to know if y tank has preferential matchmaking? go to website

etc

Yes, but OP has made it clear that that was not his question

No, in game. He made that posts after a lot of third party solutions and the wiki were posted.

The garage is in game.

Battles are ingame, so is everything else in the game.

 

And there is no possibility to check for MM ingame, neither in battles, nor in garage.

Wait for patch 2.0, perhaps. :P

And the question remains unanswered. 

 

What would the OP gain by being able to easily identify PMM tanks in battle?

Would it enhance his experience?

Would it help to improve his performance?

Why do u think you need to know my reason in order to answer a simple question?

As the chart is not available ingame the answer is again failing the question

I guess I wasnt clear enough: Ingame = garage <> in match.  For knowing the tank status before buying a tank ingame for example. Or for aligning platoon setups

True, that's why I refered to the garage.

So guys, General Jack seems to be General for a reason. He understood the issue and answered it without any issue. Thanks
