Now everyone has preferential mm technically, it was originally premium tanks that only had it. Premium tanks had lost its value by a lot. Unless they give premium tanks a larger credit bonus that would be nice. I know some smart mouth is gonna leave a smart a$$ comment. But premium tanks have lost their value by 50%.

I agree but some premium tanks have got an insane buff, like the T34 American you won't need to fire APCR anymore, and the Lowe, it can only see tier 9.

WG will probably buff the Premium tanks if they keep the current mm.

I hope they do, it was one of their major selling points for premium tanks with their MM and not doing anything to substiute that feature would be a slap in the face for those who spent major $$ for the most premiums introduced in the game.

There's a whole subforum dedicated to this.

 

WG has stated it is one patch trial (~1 month) after which they will analyze to bring it back or not, as well as what to do about premium tanks. They acknowledged some tweaking will be needed to premium tanks. So don't panic.

Well, I know WG is still gathering Data on the new MM effects on player experience but I hope what they have in mind is not some minor tweak to premiums. This was a major thing to devalue the premium tanks of their MM.

Premies have never had buff. They just come fully up-graded with 100% crew and some only saw one tier higher matching.  Many times I took my T-34 Victory into a match where I was two tiers below everyone and the other team's lowest tank was a T-34. If that tank was fully up-graded it had 70 more horse power and a better penetrating gun than the Victory. That meant I was paying for the privilege of being the least capable tank in the game. Kinda stupid to pay for that abuse.

I did enjoy the tier preferencing of the IS-6 and KV-5. Now I enjoy better matches in every game. Kudos to you WOT!!!

 

BTW: the really big bonus with Premies are the extra credits and XP.

I am Ok with the current MM as long as the affected premiums like the IS-6 and Type 59 are compensated.

Like better MMing or higher credits. I'm bad enough with these two, I don't need things to be tougher.

Give me what I paid for, sheesh! Talk about bait and switch!!!!!!

Or, another fix... make them ALWAYS top tier if they had pref MM before this 'nerf'

I have to say that the new MM makes me feel like war gaming ripped me off by buying the type 59. One of the selling point they listed was the best mm which has now gone right out the window. Often the only tier 8 in a 9 game. If they don't do something about this, I would never buy another premium tank. The only benefit is the credits and I can earn nearly as much in a kv13. Not a happy tanker.

The tier for tier mm seems more even. BUT the nerfing of the premium tanks that had preferential mm especially the type 59 (they sold us that tank knowing full well that after they got all our money they would nerf the tank) has ensured i wont be spending anymore of my pe money on premium tanks again.  Bad move wargaming. You just lost alot of trust. My prediction....the type 62 will have poor sales.
