Grab your Pitchforks, light your torches!

 

Dear Commanders,

 

Here in APAC, we are implementing several experiments as detailed in the news article. We know everyone's been pining for changes. however, we would like to make it clear that we're testing these out on live but it does not necessarily mean they will be the final product. 

Our promised changes to Matchmaker is still on schedule. Apart from that, we have also put in AI players in the lower tiers for the ANZ Periphery, this is to help not only with the player count in ANZ low tier, but also to give our newer players something to shoot at and practice (before being obliterated by seal clubbers). 

 

This thread is for all your violent reactions towards the experiments we are performing. What you say is quite important. How? You ask? We're the only region doing it, so what you say will count. 

 

Thank you for keeping the feedback objective, clear, and concise.

They’re finally fixing the MM!!!!!

Yay my 112 will no longer suffer from meeting tier 9’s all the time

 

But where the hell is the removal of the stock 25tp gun and the buff of the 40tp p/w ratio

 

Excessive use of all caps.  Case converted, user warned.

a welcome change to be sure, although I would prefer if the 3-5-7 format would just be out of the game completely so that playing tier 8s would be a viable way of having fun again

As much as I want bots in-game, I would like them in high tier as well. Not fun spending 30min trying to find a tier 9/10 match

The trial matchmaker will switch its priority and increase the amount of two-tier battles when compared to the classic 3-5-7. This means that there are new templates:

  • 6-9 (for Tiers X and IX)
  • 7-8 (for all Tiers) [Note: This will become the main template for all players]

Also, those who take to battle in preferential Premium vehicles will see an increasing amount of battles with vehicles the same or one-tier lower. While it will be possible to get into a battle with vehicles one-tier higher, these instances will be rarer due to switching priorities.

This is just the first step based on the old architecture and we are adjusting it with a trial period. The statistics and feedback from this trial will be collected and analyzed later this year and will help create the future matchmaker architecture.

 

Holy moly I didn't see this coming from WG and this is exclusive to asia :amazed: 

 

6 T10s and 9 t9s then 7 top tiers and 8 bottom tiers sounds quite nice to me. This take away the impact of having "under performing" tanks and/or players to a deficit to the team as top tiers. 

 

I wonder how much skill Bots will the have, and another question about the bots will the frequency in the types of tanks would be what WG is aiming for? which is mostly HTs then Mts and TDs and lastly arty.

This will no doubt be a huge blow to the viability of pref MM tanks...

 

But is overall good since my Defender can finally get a winrate above 55%


Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

Just sayin'...

 

But at least they're also fiddling with a few of the templates.

nah it’s actually beneficial for pref mm tanks as they see tier 9s less, according to Conan
