I don't think MM is horrible.  Not every match up is perfect, but I don't want every one to be perfect.  Sometimes it's nice to be the best guy on the team, it's fun to carry matches.  I'm not stressing about bad players on the reds or even on my team, they just make me look more badass.

A good heavy driver knows how to make shots bounce off their armor, how to use cover while fighting at the front, when to get out there and just take the shot to protect his team, to keep the reds attention focused so his team can flank, and to consistently do damage while all of that happens.

Lol.  The Society doesn't get a preferential MM.  I'm surprised how many think they do...

 

I really don't think the MM is to blame for game related frustrations.  It's brainless flora and fauna who seem to be doing countdowns every time I hit the battle button.  One guy told me he was getting beaten too badly on FarmVille so he came to Blitz where there's less competition.

Too many threads on this - what makes this one official?

 

I spoke with RibbleStripe about the vast number of Matchmaking threads that take place in general discussion. I asked him if we could create one central Matchmaking thread and pin it.  All other Matchmaking threads would be closed and directed here.  This should cut back on the massive amount of Matchmaking threads that tend to clog up general discussion.

 

At least that was the idea.

Everyone should play standard tanks, no advantage with camouflage, premium shells, tracks, engine ,etc etc, That would solve a lot of the problems, then yes skill would be the advantage.

Your lack of understanding the game is mind blowing.  Any item in the game can be acquired by any player in the game.

What did you think Free XP is for, eye candy? You can go from stock to max just by playing smart in your other, already maxed tanks. Why do you think I grinded my Borsig for nearly 1200 games? The answer: to max out my T-54 before even playing it by getting large amounts of free XP in a tank I enjoy and do well in.

Be careful of what you wish for.

Over at WoT they just "fixed" the MM and now it seems worse than ever.  :trollface:

 

Whatever they did yesterday, I had 2 wins in 25 matches and all of the losses to the red team were steam rolls.

 

I keep bringing this stuff up, because I'm seriously concerned that Blitz is headed in the same directions.

 

As a side note, I couldn't hit the proverbial broad side of a barn. I was missing fully aimed shots from close range after the update.

 

I'm appreciating Blitz more and more. At least a stock tank in Blitz is actually playable, in WoT you are a bonafied target until the crew is up to 100%. It's so bad, I figured out I get more kills by ramming in my Panzer III E than by shooting.

I think tank type balance is a good point to bring up.  Sometimes you'll start a game and it's all heavies and TDs vs medium and lights on red.  Steamroll win.  Then it's the other way round and it's steamroll loss.  Balancing team and tank composition is important to starting a fair match.  I suppose this is not always easy given the players in the queue, but I would try to balance armor and maneuverability on each team.

That's hilarious. I'd like to add that to the opening post but I want to keep it as neutral as possible.  I do agree with all the points made though...

This is a great explanation on why these steamrolls happen.

The only thing about the MM that bugs me is when you get imbalances in tank classes.  Why does it think it’s doing the right thing when Team A is 3 heavies and 4 lights, while Team B is 3 heavies and 4 TDs?  Within the +1/-1 I don’t worry too much about the tier of the tank types.  But that sort of lopsided imbalance in class when the solution is so obvious is just dumb.
The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.
