on Asia server, getting timeouts (exceeding 5 mins) with TDs on tier X with 6k players on, 250 odd people in the queue. Funny cant actually use end game content.

 

Is game in decline that much that we cant get a tier X game now?

Maybe bots that run 24/7 have figured out there is no tier 11

maybe most players don't like playing at the loss that comes with Tier 10. Did you ever think of that?

I have a Tier 10 tank and I think I have had 1 game in it...

They are just to expensive to play and not worth it if you ask me.

And when you finally get a premium time or enough money to cover tier X game cost, you can't enter regular game or join GB which you are not familiar yet, which discourage you to play tier X further.

 


Back to World of Tanks for now.

Hmm, I often play T10 arty and have never had a time-out; in fact, I've quite often got into a GB, which previously was an exquisite rarity. These matches suit my 'sit safely at the back and occasionally click on something' play style quite well.

I was getting this a lot in the afternoon on HK as well. If I was to guess, maybe the game is trying to make grand battles and you have this turned off, or it is making countless 3-5-7ish games but you have already been in many and are waiting for the game to make a 15v15 tier 10?

The problem is they are trying to force 3 tier matches again.
All same tier should be priority, followed by 2 tier split, with 3 tier as final possible solution.

The new mm experiment is bullshit. Being t8 bottom tier vs 4 t10's and 5 t9's is less fun than 3 5 7 ever was.

 

Go back to the 2 tier split please WG, it seemed less rapey and more customer friendly.

Fix t10 timeouts by improving the t10 economy to make it viable for pubbies. Not by screwing t8. Put lipstick on the pig and we will still call it a pig. Put the same pig on tinder with photoshop, and we know it's a catfish.

Yeah, I've been getting it too.

I'm wondering if the MM is struggling too hard to put together large TX games (15 v 15 or a GB) when there's a lot of TXs in the queue, such that there's an ugly spot where you have maybe 16 - 24 TX tanks in the queue picked to try and fill a specific match the MM is building. So the MM may be switching back and forth, trying and failing to make a larger match, then switching to make a smaller match but now being saddled with excess tanks again.

 

I've certainly noticed there's fewer T9/X matches, which is a good way of dealing with a pool of 12-16 TX tanks. It's possible they need to bump that back up in terms of MM selection priority.

My suspicion is that when the old 357 was the preferred template people avoided 8s by playing 9s and 10s. When 8s were made more tolerable people shifted back. Add in the inevitable all tier 10 heavy td meta and it's no wonder queue times are longer.

It's like a false flag operation ....
T10 is unattractive coz economy.
T10 LT's & Mediums are unattractive coz tiny corridor maps.
These 2 factors = very few playing T10 in anything but HT or TD.
Long wait times.
Blame matchmaker for current meta and economy issues.
Screw T8.

Yeah, the preponderance of TDs and HTs in TX is just insane now.

 

Sometimes you can make out like a bandit in a MT now though.

3 tier MM taking less tier X tanks out of the queue, compared to the 2 tier MM which was taking double/triple the amount of tier X tanks out of the queue.

ok so it looks like no one is happy with current state.

 

WG what is your plan? Milk the player base and run?

 

Also tanks capable of one shot kills should be removed. Playing FV-4005 lately and that is stupid. One game I single shot 3 players from full HP. Tier IX & X LT is rubbish, low HP and no armor. I cringe every time i see a leopard 1 on my team as well. Amazing how the Russian lines are the best of everything...
