Personally, I'm getting around the horrible mm by going tier 10 most of the time.  But, my problem with the mm at this point is that 80-90% of the games are ending in blowouts (7-0, 7-1).  Not much fun IMO.

 

I don't know how much everyone else has spent on this game but, I'd venture to guess I've spent at least $1k over the past 1.6 yrs.  The past 24 hours has been easily the least enjoyable time of my tenure...and I'm not losing a lot!

That's odd. I found every game was a blowout during +1/-1 while in Tier X. Looks like we're at a standstill here.

Like I wrote in an earlier post of mine, I thought the +1/-1 matchmaking was the most fair. Teams always had an even number from each tier, and the only common blowouts I'd see were 7-3, 7-2. However, I'm enjoying how dang EASY it is to blow out other teams with this +2/-2 matchmaking back in business. No wonder all the super unicorns were complaining about the +1/-1! Now that I've learned so much between December and now, I see what they were talking about when they said +2/-2 was pure bliss!

Heck, I was even blowing X's out of the water with my IS-3D! Those driving X's automatically assumed that they're be able to steamroll right over the tier 8's. I agree with what others have now said. If you can't learn how to win in +2/-2 with a Tier 8 in Tier 8-10 battles, you'll never learn how to be good in Tier X matches with Tier X.

My experience was exactly the opposite. +/-1MM led to near constant blowouts, even as the test went on. The games are back down to two or three tanks at the end, which is much more satisfying.

I like +1/-1 but somehow I get easy steamroll games such as doing 3.5k damage and taking 1-2 unlucky (for me) pens in the IS-6 and our team still wins by 7-3, 7-2, 7-1, or even 7-0 demolition.  And that's today, with +2/-2 MM. Also it's pretty fun to play an awesome game and win

Everybody goes through blowouts, the best thing I find is to switch up the tiers. I think the current mm forces too much pressure on the high tier tanks to do amazing

How does MM impact these games.

Players seem to be the factor.

Today's blow-out losses can be tomorrow's steamroll wins. 

 

Keep hope. Everybody goes through a bad patch sometimes, ok every now and then, all right semi frequently :)

+2mm is so much better. Not because you can generally club tanks 2 tiers lower but you can get awesome games in tanks 2 tiers lower, also top tiers usually tunnel straight on the top tiers.

As I said, my win rate is fine.  It just seems that there are so many blowout games in comparison, that it's not as much fun.  I haven't had nor seen a 1 survivor vs 1 survivor yet today.  Where as with the old mm ide see it on a regular basis.  

 

On on another note, I wish mm would take into account win %'s.

After only 24 hours back at -2/+2 I would say the fun factor is way back up.  That was my one observation about -1/+1, it was just a lot of work to win when bottom tier against 5 top tier reds with a team of potatoes.  I've seen a couple of steamrolls but also a lot more multiple "gg" at the end because it was, win or lose we were back to having fun not just doing our job.
