Hey Tankers!

 

So, some of you have been wondering what is going to happen with the +1/-1 matchmaking in the upcoming Update 2.6. Well I am here to answer that question! 

 

This experiment has been incredibly valuable in collecting information on how this change could affect the game as a whole. I would like to extend my thanks to you fine people who helped us put this concept to the test so we could gather this data and feedback! Thank you!

 

Oh right, the news of what is happening.

 

In 2.6 Matchmaking will be reverted to its normal +2/-2 format. It will be like it was in 2.4. As far as if it will be coming back or not, that will take more time to determine. We need to pore over the data and feedback to discuss what the best thing for Blitz is in the long run. The feedback section will remain open until Monday so be sure to provide any feedback you want us to see! 

 

Alright - so I got up this morning to be greeted by an e-mail explaining that the devs have started to look at the data for +1/-1 matchmaking and have come to a realization. They need more data. A single month of data was not enough to properly evaluate how +1/-1 would affect the server and game. As a result of this need to for data the test has been extended another month. That means with 2.6, +1/-1 matchmaking will continue in order to provide the devs with all the information they will need to make a well informed decision! 

 

apologize for the short notice and appreciate your understanding!

Probably a good idea.

The hassles relating to Premium Tanks, is an issue worth avoiding.

Thank you. 

 

As someone who has been low tier 75-80% of the time, for the better part of a whole year, 1MM was refreshing and lot less stressful. Even if it did not raise my WR (due to more and more newbies on - wg really needs to work on education and balancing teams) I will look forward to the return of 1MM in 2.7 ;)

What kind of matchmaking will the premiums have/retain?

The Dork has Spoken!

I'm still a noob, but my luck has changed. Yours can to.

Don't stress about stats. Enjoy the game!

I guess they didn't want the German light tanks to be ridiculously overpowered.
