This will reduce stress - but also reduce the challenge!  I love going after Tier 8 TDs in my Victory!

 

I applaud WG for jumping in and seeing how this works, and giving us the heads up that they are going to try a new recipe for MM.  I can only imagine it will be warmly received.

What happens with tanks that have pref MM?

I am not sure about the effect the matchmaking will have on the gameplay. All I can think of is that rebalancing will be necessary, as most of the tanks were not originally designed to encounter enemies of only one tier higher. (This can be compared to the balancing necessary for scout tanks in the PC version, which would be very overpowered in a match of their own tier.)

I personally have not had any problems with long queues when using the mobile version, and I think that plus-or-minus 2 matchmaking puts a significant element of variety into the game. Only when playing the Windows 10 client do I have long queues, and that is most certainly attributed to the lack of people actually using it. I understand that it is impossible to change the matchmaking for Windows 10 only; it will too greatly unbalance the field between mobile and Windows players, but I think that the Windows platform has to be changed so that we actually can get matches.

Overall, I do not believe such a matchmaking change is necessary for the mobile version, at least, and that if it does, in fact, become a permanent feature, that there will have to be some rebalancing done and that we will lose a great amount of variety that comes from a wider spread of possible opponents. To test this new system is a good idea, though, and we will see what comes of it.

I've been suggesting this for a while now. There should be enough players now that this would work.

I suspect they just won't have it for the duration of 2.5.  Though I would love my E25 to be +0/-1 for a while ;)

OK - so tier 10 games will only include tiers 9 and 10 then?

I guess all tanks now have a form of pref matchmaking? I highly doubt they would move pref to always highest tier.

 

thanks for the opportunity to test this out on the NA server. I'm sure there will be LOTS of feedback coming your way. Exciting!

Well I guess this won't happen anymore, here's a game with only tier 7's and 5's. No tier 6's.

Oh. My. Gawd.

 

How long?  Just the NA server?  What do you feel is an acceptable wait time versus an un-acceptable wait time?  Will this result in Re-balancing the tanks?

 

What's the best way to send you my digital hugs?  Do you guys have big enough reservoirs at WG'ing HQ to keep up with all the tears from people cry about how you "nerfed" their Premium with Pref Match Making?  Did you prepare for the forum explosions?

 

That's all for now, but I'm reserving the space below this for Edits...

Emphasis added: Can you imagine if the IS6 and HYPE 59 get -1/+0 "adjustments" if the test is made permanent?  OH MY!

Wow, I remember a genius posting this back in November. Who was he....

 

 

http://forum.wotblit...atch-maker-1-1/

 

looks like War Gaming listened to me.  Yinz can thank me in game for this. I spent tireless hours emailing and sending boxes of Pirmanti's sandwiches to Minsk asking for a more balanced gameplay. I took Serb to a Stillers game and pumped him full of Prada Vodka while listening to his stories in the KGB when they would make new recruits drive a MS-1 and parallel park in downtown Moscow during rush hour just for fun. 

 

Cheers


Tier 10's: FV 183, T110E3, T110E4, T110E5, T57, Patton M48, IS-4, IS-7, T-62a, Obj 140

 

There is only one TD, and 183 is her name.
