Recently I happened to watch a WG video in that the developer stated that MM did take wr into comsideration.  


I personally would prefer “just random” MM.  


So do you prefer MM with wr as a factor.

Source of the video? 

Because for all we know and have been told for years, MM is random, does not take WR into consideration, and only recently has been tweaked to try to balance the tanks on green and red.

Yeah, this has been discussed before. If this video exists we need to see it.

Individual votes on this topic will depend on what someone is really looking for.

People who don't care at all about stats and just want "balanced" and interesting battles more of the time may opt for MM based on WR.

Let us assume by MM based on WR, we mean that for every 60%er on one team, there is about a 60%er on the other team. etc.

We do not mean that they just sum up all the WR on each side and call that "balanced".

People who like to look at stats should prefer truly random MM.


Let's repeat the logic once more:

If MM is truly random, then over time players' WR will tend to rise or fall based on their skill level relative to the random "average" player.

The above average skill players will see WR rise until it plateaus somewhere.

The below average skill players will see WR drop until it also plateaus somewhere.

If MM is balanced based on WR, then over time everyone will regress towards 49% WR, unless someone suddenly starts playing way better or worse that their WR

would indicate.

There have been more recent tweaks - some divulged, some not, some denials. The timing of those tweaks have been debated. I’m not sure any previous comments still apply and there is enough information in the NA and EU forums that suggests they do not apply. Trust what you want.
