    I completely agree, i is hard task.. But for my part because something is hard, does not stop me from trying! I in general respect and care for my fellow players of the game, and I want us all to have the best time possible, fron the lowest patato to the highest unicom! And feel that is worth doing something hard to achieve 😊

    I kinda agree the system i suggest here is not the most ideal, i as thought experiment what can i make that would better than current system, whilst having to keep the 2 spread tier system, The general way the MM works now! If we drop those constraints... There much better way of doing the MM, but that is more or less redesign of the system! And thank you again for the very well thought out arguments, it is pleasure to read! πŸ‘πŸ‘

    That could be a way to go to.. But i see a problem with tie in only win rate, as odd feed back loop, as you get more fair matches you WR falls towards 50, and then you get unfair matches again! I think the system is going get stuck in some odd oscillation between almost fair MM and very unfair MM! But self feedback system are notorious hard to predict.. Wich makes them, imo, very interesting, but don't know if that's a good idea for MM system πŸ€”

    For the fail division, back when i even tried to play whit doread, it was 2 tier, so it is only one now?? As i have no proff how WG runs thier MM, as their keeo most of how it operates very very secret.. I can see very few reasons to that, And knowing WG, it most likely to be manipulate MM to force/promote more spending! Yes it has ... Naval Training Center.. Among others.. Abd latest CC walkout.. But yes, as i said we as customers has to get lot better at punish WG for not doing things right! As the only thing they us loosing money! But you only argument here is.. WG are assholes, on witch i agree! And would never listen, witch i don't agree.. Make it cost them money, and they will listen! 😊

    Thank you for your well thought out response πŸ‘ You raise very good points πŸ‘ I completely agree the reason that WG wants, an unbalanced crap MM is because it makes them money! But that fact is also why we can make them change it!! If want to that is? A big/massive player protest/boykot/walkout will make them change/improve it, as that cost them more than it makes them! I and know it works, because we done it before 😊 For the argument that the more skilled players are going to ruffle stop the less skilled on, i really doubt that conclusion, as the less skilled players are going to be in better ships that is going conpansate for their lack skill in some part! So they are going to have more fun games in general, compared to now! And the skilled players are going to have more fun games to, as they will a challenge better suited for their skills! Longer games, yes i agree with you there! As teams would much balanced, so we should much less rufflestobs, si longer games! πŸ€” From a player perspective i can't say if that is bad or good rigth now, have to consider thatπŸ€”πŸ˜Š But if want to fix, easy, decrease the number of people per match to 9 per team.. Boom shorter matches.. Plus i think that to would in it self alone make the game more enjoyable for everyone to! We have to remember that we are WG customers, not thier slaves that have give them money! Abd we have to be lot better to speak with our wallets, snapping them shut, if WG does not treat us with respect

    Would probably tend to agree.. And fear they have other reasons to want to keep the matchmaker as is, and very closed on how it works! As kinda get feeling that it is bit rigged towards the high spending playerbase, or at least in way to try to manipulate one spendt money πŸ€” But don't have any proff, just feels a but like that! But we as players know how to get WG to listen and change... Mass revolt πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But kind of sad that is what it takes πŸ€”

    First part, yes in this system you would be able to meet ships with larger spread than one! But the ones the higher Tier ships would less skilled players and the low tier ships would be higher skills players! Thereby balancing out, giving everyone as fair match as possible! Yes it would take a sine matches for the ratings to adjust to you skill level! But can not see how that can be avoided! And much better than now, where player skill is not even considered, abd there for teams can be and often very miss matched! 1, don't see as a big problem, as it should adjust quickly! And you have the exact same problem now, just worse as it never adjust! 2 depends on what you call a lot of battles, i would say between 10 to 50 battles to find you level in ship! Of course if you going for the maximum rating you can, you need to spend more realy getting good at the specific ship! But u see nothing wrong with that? Do you? 3 the free xp and credit was just suggested reward! But beyond that, as guess where you are in the game, it should be more about challenging you self, and getting bragging rights by having good ship ratings! As clearly nit short on resources! But the suggest rewards are good motivation for new players to get better, so we all can more fun abd interesting games! Well that is more down programing as specifics, but not really that hard... A ship with MR if 6.45, would be open for match up with 4 45 to 8.45.. And then you just look how all the ships, currebtly in cue, overlap and when 24 ships do, you put then i a match! A bit basic explanation! But basically what matchmaker is doing now already! Except as itvis now, it has all kinds of extra steps and rules, to try balance matches a little bit.. Like the rule the you be up tied by 2 more that 8 out 20 times! All which is more or less baked in the system i am suggesting! So the MM is probably going to be simpler and have an easier time making matches!

    To be clear 😊 A ship would have 2 ratings, one ship match rating(SMR) from - 2 to +2 and a ship skill rating(SSR) that is % of you placed compared to other using the same ship, wich us the that really is a measure of the players skill 😊

    Yes you completely right.. Win rate stops being a measure of how good you are.. Totally true! But i have complete confidence that most, if not all, can figure out that high +rating mens the.. F.... Same.. Or if a player is in the top 5% it is same Ohh wait.. No it is better, because it measures you up against others use the same ship, so it even better reflect you skills, so uf you get high rating, mening that see that you are top 5% using that ship.. It shows much clearer what massive bad as you, and even more get high combined rating over all you ships!! So truly lay claim to being guud! πŸ€”πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ Would be able to figure that out to?? Or you want me draw you diagram? πŸ˜‰

    1 No you do not get punish for getting playing, you get matched up to something that Match your skill level! What you are saying is equal to you being in turnement, and complaining when reach the final, that you being punish because you have to face a hard opponent!! Your statement us absurd, my god sir!! You are getting rewarded for you skill 1 you get worthy opponents matching your abilities 2 you can show off you abilities, showing that maintain har +rating, earning braging rigths 3 on top of all that you get bonus to both free ex snd credits Punished, can only imagine seal clubbers and greefers say that 🀨 2 as you go you up rating you going to face opponents that is harder, either by having better skills and/or ships! So the general compentcy of you opponents increases! Don't know how you can misunderstand that!

    You can actually test it.. 😊 Make a fail division on player in a tier 8, And the other 2 in a tier 6.. Those 2 in T6 is playing at difficulty still less than having +2 in this system! But as close we can get.. Try ti play just 5 matches like, use the rules from my suggestion, and see you can maintain you +2 rating! I well bet good bananas that you can't, not even close! But you can test it 😊

    While i can understand how can arrive at that conclusion! You made a few mistakes, one as his/her matchmaking score rises, he is going face harder opponents! That means 2 things.. 1. His/her win rate going to drop, as he/she can not affect the match to same extent, and unless he/she is very very good that going to happen quickly! 2. The place he finish one the team is going to drop quickly to, as he again faces harder opponents, and has more compataint team members So at some point it is going level out, Where the skill of the allows him to maintain a aprox 50% win rate abd middle of pack score on games! When that happens, depends on the player, but unless the player is god like in his/her skills, they never reaching +2.. The same goes for the other direction.. Bad'er than average is going to level out at sime minus value.. So no, unless you are total Chad at wows, you never reaching +2.. No matter number of games 😊
