The patch notes for 2.1 state:

 

"Mission distribution algorithm improved: now it considers player’s highest vehicle tier and most frequently used vehicles."

 

The first part of that seems to be working correctly.  It does now consider a player's highest vehicle tier.  However, it's considering that part way too heavily and completely ignoring the second part, about the most frequently used vehicles.

 

In the last week since 2.1 was released, I typically complete 1-2 missions per day, sometimes more.  Almost EVERY mission I've been assigned in that time period has been for Tier X, which if you look at my tier breakdown, is one of my LEAST played tiers.

 

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Battles 46 227 442 470 909 1215 1615 2474 2507 330
% 0.45% 2.22% 4.32% 4.59% 8.88% 11.87% 15.78% 24.17% 24.49% 3.22%

 

My highest-played Tier X tank has only 78 battles in it, with most others having far fewer.  Compare that with my Tier 8 and 9 tanks, some of which have well over 200 or 300 battles in them.

 

The short version is: The "most frequently used vehicles" portion of the mission assignment formula is not working as stated.

Same here - almost all missions I got since 2.1 update are for tier X, even though I spent last 7 days grinding new line from tier 2 to 8, playing them almost exclusively. Tier X missions don't make sense appearing for me too.

Right on. I have one T10 and rarely play it. Two out of three missions so far always for T10. I keep skipping, always replaced with another T10 mission.

Interesting.  All my missions after the update have been tier 6.

My highest owned tier: tier 8
My most frequently played tier: 5
My Average tier: 4.2

When the patch came out I reported a ticket that I completed a mission and it never cleared.  It just sits there, and I never received the reward.  They are still working on it, but it's another mission bug that came with that update...

Yup, Tier 9 missions are all I am getting now. Granted, right after 2.1 I had mostly tier 7 missions which was helpful for the AT-7 grind so my complaint is small.

I do like that the three missions share a tier,  it's easier to fulfill missions when  they stack like that.

True, but as I'm the kind of player that likes completing missions (they give me a goal to progress toward other than just "I wanna raise my WR" ), it's irritating being forced, per se, to play Tier X.

5 new missions between yesterday and this morning.  All Tier X... :sceptic:

I have this too although I think it was even before the patch. I didn't report it because I didn't realize it until I deleted/redownloaded in order to update (and it said I had three "new" missions, although none of them are and one is still complete).

I have been playing lots of X lately and actually welcome this change.  I kept getting tier 3-7 missions before.  And while seal clubbing is fun, it also makes me feel a bit dirty.  OK, maybe not that dirty, but I feel bad for the noobs for all of 10 seconds.

Seen this as well.  I keep getting tier 5 missions.  While I have been rehabbing one tier 5 tank right now, most of my games are still tier 7 or 8. Haven't seen any missions for higher tiers in a while.

Ya,  almost all tier X.

How about the next 4 weeks pumps out a TONS of tier 8 missions so we can tackle multiple contest criteria at once

Have to agree the mission is system is broken. It absolutely is contradictory to what has been stated where it will take into account what you drive. It doesn't. Au contraire. It is the opposite. I am only getting top tier missions. 

 

Recently I have mostly been active in the lower british TD line and three of my mid tier tanks, grinding crew and xp to move them up. So, I play my top tier tank sporadically. My existing missions were high tier and because of that I have largely ignored them. Now having just completed those top tier missions (do x over any number of battles) ... what are my new replacement missions? ALL TOP TIER!  Sad. :(

Same here.  EVERY mission I have received since the 2.1 update except for *1* has been a tier X mission.

All tier X all the time since 2.1 for me. Here is hoping that gets fixed in 2.2!

My too I either get tier X currently have 3 of them and less than 2% of my games are in my 1 tier 10 tank.

 

 

Most of my matches are 7 and 8 but I either get tier 10 or tier 4 missons for some reason

I get all X missions... some you need to fire a bunch of prammo to win.  The reward? Way less silver than the cost of finishing the mission.  Stupid system

Maybe they mean that when they consider your highest tier and most played tank, they mean they will keep giving you missions for your highest tier tank and never giving you missions for your most played tanks.
