  1. wg dont work on wot. i think they have serious problems or simply their work force working on other projects. whatever their reason wot sucks and they dont want fix….


    1. Be patient, I know WG takes some time to balance and fix things. I’ve been to tankfrst and spoke to one of the Devs. He said that the team needs at least 3 months to balance out 2 to 3 tanks. Plus, 9.20 would bring long awaited buffs to kv-5, is-6, type 59……. Plus, the Dev also said that they are currently super testing the change to premium ammo. That is reducing all premium ammo damage by at least 15%. That way, gold would be an alternative rather than a replacement for standard ammo.


        1. Useless to tell that to people, because you know, WG sucks and fiyan could do it 1000 times better.. but ehm… he doesn’t want to.
          You can’t tell them facts. They just see the bad things “I cant pen Maus” but before the same people crieed “my Maus has no armor”. No matter what WG does, its always wrong to these idiots. And still they play it. :)


    1. NA is the least populated server. Its MM is different than the other servers’, especially EU’s.
      To put it short, everywhere outside NA the tier 8 MM is crap.
      Buuut on the other hand, I’ve heard that the lowtier NA MM is even more crap. Can you tell us something about that?


        1. I think it’s impossible to fix. Playing everything below tier 9 is for masochists cause tier 8 is somewhat great step up for every class except mediums. Fighting defenders, lowes and amx m4s with IS or not even challenging. Playing with tier 6 against E25s neither.


  2. T8 on NA see’s a lot of t10’s. But if you are decent it’s not a big deal. I mean you do have other tanks your level to beat up on.

    you get alot of 15v15 t8 fights or 13v13 t8 fights and very rarely are you top tier in the 3/5/7 format. I dont’ play anything below 7 so wouldn’t know about lower tiers.


  3. Being on NA East, playing 7-11 CST, I can attest to some simple stats. In using my Tier 8 i see 3 of 5 games in a tier 9/10 match. the other 2 are pure tier 8 matches.
    In using any of my Tier 6 i see 3 of 5 in a tier 7/8 match and then the other 2 matches is a Tier 6/5 matches.
    So to me MM on NA East is so much better than it used to be….playing tier 10 last night, 10 matches and 3 of those were in Teri 8/9/10, the other 7 were pure Tier 10.

    My issue is i see way more “Uber players” on the other team than i am on and usually ends up a 0-15 or 5-15 loss…that is my big gripe. Player rating imbalance.


    1. 15-5 matches isn’t a player rating imbalance. I do agree with you that there are games where it stacks all the “uber” players on one team, but usually I see this when they are platooned together. This is a kind of proof that WG doesn’t use player rating in the MM.

      When you get 15-5 matches look at the guys who you feel are “uber” players and see what their pen rates are. Chances are that you’ll stumble upon enough bad pen rates to realize that the RNG system has a hand in the 15-5 results. Also look at tanks and the amount of bounces/pens the tanks take. If these tanks are tanks that typically have great armor or don’t get penned often but this match they bounced 1 round then that again is proof of WG’s RNG meddling in the result.
