The composition of tanks in each team is a task of matchmaker. It works in following manner. It takes one tank from the queue and looks at his tier. For example it is IS - russian heavy with tier 7. The matchmaker takes the corresponding line from the table below and sees that the IS has battle tiers from 7 till 9. Randomly is the tier for battle selected. In our example let it be 8 (from 7 to 9 incl.). The matchmaker takes tanks from queue, which can participate in tier 8 battles (see column number 8 in the table) and puts them in 2 teams. In our battle we can face Tiger II and for example M6 (both can participate in tier 8 battles).

There are 12 battle tiers. In the tier 12 battles you will have only tanks from 10 tier and some light scouts from lower tiers. Some players are confusing battle tiers with tank tiers. This values must not be the same. The matchmaker resolves battle tier on the basis of table below. It doesn't try to weigh the tank tiers in both teams. Some tanks have exclusive battle tiers, you can find the in lower half of a table. (Most premium tanks have lowered battle tiers)

Matchmaker doesn't consider:

  • tank configuration (stock/top)
  • training and skills/perks of the crew
  • additional equipment installed on the tank

Its not just what tier!.. Its also has to do with player not really knowing how to play even at tier ten!.. It should come down to play who have ..let's say 10000 battle should be playing 10000 and up to like 20000 !.. That way rookie are stuf with rookie and good ,veteran play are playing together!!!

Well WG missed the mark with patch 9.18.

The only issue with MM was and still is uneven tank layout and not tier 6 light versus tier 9s (which is how you get better). Example: red team has 8 heavies, 4 meds, 3 arty. green team has 1 heavy, 7 meds, 4 lights, 3 arty. How can meds win again that much armor in a corridor map...they can't.

Light tanks: Nerfed...WG doesn't seem to know what to do with them. Not enjoying playing them now.

Arty: the idea of stun is ok, but the radius is too big. Every game arty focused (fine, I can deal with that), but with the increased blast radius, I was constantly perma-tracked....not enjoyable.

Has anyone else noticed the decline in credits per battle when compared to similar matches pre-9.18?

MM is made for making loads of money. It trows you in a unfair battle, you buy gold and exp so .. don`t take it personal, it`s just business. :))))

ps - don`t get me wrong, i just explain you why are you a tier 4 running as hell in 6 or 7 tier battle. i am not saying this is good.

Bonjour je ne suis peux être que débutant dans wot avec mes 9000 batailles mais jamais je n'ai ressenti un MM aussi mal équilibrer que se mois dernier ! Exemple mes 200 dernières batailles je n'ai gagné que 50 batailles en ayant des défaites avec comme score du 3-15. Alors voila ma question serais t'il possible d'améliorer le MM ??? Je sais que vous adorez l'argent et que vous poussez les joueurs a acheter des chars mais la je trouve que c'est devenu trop flagrant et qu'il faudrait faire en sorte de rééquilibrer les parties sinon vous allez perdre beaucoup de joueurs se qui bien sur n'aidera pas votre portefeuille !! Je serais ravi de détailler plus mes arguments donc n'hésiter pas a me contacter.

Ever person on here complaining about being in a tier 4 light in a tier 7/8 game are the tomato's who well never understand the concept of learning how to play. A-20 or the luchs in a tier 7 match on a open map is easy. It's a mix of passive scouting and flanking medium/td's with other players.. Not fucking solo like a idiot. Have a 60% WR in my luchs. And am a 2154 Win8 player...If your tanks gun cant pen the front of a heavy, figure out to stop trying and learn to flank ya noobs.
