Ever wondered how World of Tanks selects your allies and enemies each time you join a battle? This video will show you what goes on behind the scenes.

One of WOT mysteries indeed...
Because one does not die when he is killed. One dies when he is forgotten. That's why we will live forever as a legend

"The team balance are roughly the same"

Seeing 8.9 MM so far, it's been good (except for the TD spam in hi tiers >.>) and the only thing that screws it up are failplats.
Good on ya WG

So we don't have to wear a tinfoil hat after watching this then....... :trollface:

Amade, relax.. I am holding on to my shares in aluminium mines, and tin foil manufacturing plants. Why ? I'll answer that with these wise words :

I thought there was info released a while back that said MM takes into account your most recent win rate...?
It's a pity they didn't take time in the video to dispel any of the myths, unless you take the information given as the complete story I guess.

I swear I see more unbalanced battles than that video would imply, unless of course our cluster is still seen as new after 18+ months.

That one is still fairly close. I'm talking more about the ones where one team has 3 more top tiers than the other.

Well, never believe everything you see or hear.

In this video they tell you that the MM does not take into account win/rate and other stats, I say that is a complete lie. I see way too many XVM stat ridden games that prove otherwise.

I have a friend who just came out of a game in his hellcat in which his ENTIRE team was dead in the first 2 minutes ALL doing ZERO damage except for my friend. YES !! THAT IS 14 TANKS DOING ZERO DAMAGE.He then proceeded to go and kill himself rather than let the enemy have another cheap kill. Do you blame him? After the game he looked at the win rates of both teams, 7 of the enemy team were between 50-60% win rates while his team was all sub-50% and down to 44% - He was the only player with a win rate above 50% on his team...

In the new "Team Based" games they admit that players are selected based on their personal abilities so I am sure this same in game mechanic is being used in pub random games

Transparency is crucial to the long term survival of this game for the more experienced gamers. If WG want this game to last they need to ensure that EVERY game is completely random with no match fixing at all.

AALG, you are right after all. Looks like I can still make a profit by selling tin foil hats.

Random battles will always be Random,

thanks for making MM a bit fairer than before =)

aside from the occasional "why does the enemy have an extra tier 10" thanks to a fail plat,

or the ever common tier 5 seal club plats sent to tier 8 games,

We will carry you :3

I closed the video the moment that guy said "Team should be equal in class and tier of vehicle".


Does WG has any shame left?

What if the cause of the red players or the ones you regard with "bad" stats are filling the majority of the player in queue and because it is random, you get matched and paired with them. You can say it's rigged but a RNG system can still generate the number "1" for a thousand time and we can still not determine it rigged or not because it is R-A-N-D-O-M.
