Great post. It's honestly not rigged, we all have epic winning (and more likely) losing streaks. It's random, sometimes random good, sometimes random bad. What works for me is switching tier or tank, I have no idea why but sometimes certain tanks just seem to be cursed. You switch tank, try a lower tier or different class and switch back again later. I feel the frustration but I overall I think the MM works really well nowadays.

October 2017: deleted the game because of the CORRUPT matchmaking only. Sleeping is more exciting. My best tip after 23.000 battles: DONT SPENT MONEY ON WOT BLITZ!

Best post I've ever seen on this forum.

Ordered one and It didn't match my head size.

Clearly Amazon MM is rigged by WG

Thanks much, MrConway. Long after we're gone, songs will be sung of this moment in pubs all over the continent ... well, in subways, anyway ... hummed, really ...

 

Maybe now we can have constructive-ish conversations, like what do you do, when your 4-heavy/2-med/1-TD team is matched against 2-heavy/5-med team? Do you:

 

A) all take the heavy route and try to steamroll their heavies?

B) all try to meet the red meds on the med flanking route?

C) split the team up?

D) a different solution entirely?

 

Or do I just go with the flow?

E) You stay on spawn and curse at WG and MM in global chat until Reds make a toast out of your tank.

 I do know that the way i express myself to some, if not most, people sound a bit too...aggressive? salty? rude?... but this is the way i speak and the way my thought train rolls...so...yeah...i'm not trying to insult anyone or pick up any fights.

The correct choice is B)

If you meet the meds head-on, you have the advantage because of armour and firepower. If you avoid enemy meds at the beginning, eventually they will use superior mobility to circle your team and cream you

Everything else is just wrong

*cough* http://www.google.com/patents/US8425330 *cough*

 

In any case, could league system like in Clash of Clans and +/-1 Tier group together players with ones of similar battle efficiency removing major wailing threads about noobs everywhere? I'm pretty sure it's been considered and turned down during development phase (competition scan?), would love to know the arguments against it.

 

Groups are frequently heavy on one type of tanks while missing totally type which is rich in numbers in the opposing team. RNG or MM imperfection?

 

Thanks,

B1
