Hello caps,
with the glorified tier VIII MM change, I would like to ask you for your personal experience with the change.
Please vote in the poll once you feel you have gathered enough tier VIII battles to judge for yourself.

Please read the patch notes. They are quite spicy.

 

I have seen a Tirpitz complain about being top tier all the time today. I haven't yet played a T8 ship to test it, but I'm looking forward to it.

Added to main post, for clarity.

BTW you have seen the COMPLAINING?
Well I wouldn't be TOO surprised...

quite honestly, I dont think opening a poll on this makes any sense right this second. This wasnt a change that promised "you wont be bottom tier at all anymore" - it'S a gradual change, and as such any answers you give after five or even twenty matches are completely worthless because the sample size is just too small...

i haven't tried tier 8 yet, but as a tier 7 ship, i have been matched against tier 8 3 times in a row, something very unusual for  tier 7 ( that are almost always top tier)

The thread is not going anywhere - people can (and hopefully will) vote once they play enough tier VIII games (as stated in the text).

Indeed. That's why I haven't voted, yet.

One hour after update and is it a poll? Not too early?

Possibly, feel free to vote after you feel you have gathered enough data.

Is it ? Djäämn, I was just considering buying the "First & Last" package for my brother, but since he's just a noob then perhaps not. Don't wanna discourage him right now do we? Hehehe! I told him to grind Coop with his tier 1's until he gets his account level to 7 and actually begins hitting someone with his guns and also gets some Commanders for his ships, then we'll start in division and tier 1 and 2 Randoms hopefully tomorrow. Planning to buy him a Tachibana and Aurora for tier 2 prems and a BB later on (not Mikasa either so as not to depress too much right away, hehe). Unfortunately no suitably OP tier 3 Prem. BB's on sale for now. Curses! Oh well we'll see how that goes anyway. All the best of luck to your Vanguard then, sounds like you might need some. :cap_like:

As I was still skeptical about the changes I went 5 consecutive times into battle with the T8 I knew I'd suffer the less when uptiered, my Kidd.

4 T10 games, 1 T9.

Yeah, too early, too small of a sample, etc etc etc, but thus far certainly seems the stated changes haven't ... "changed" much xD.

I wish this didn't apply to Tier VIII CVs.... and it does seem to have made life harder for Tier VI and VII players: more radars floating around, which is not welcome.

Is it from today's update? Or the last one? Since lately I've seen more of 1-3 tier 8 ships in tier 10 games. So, fewer tier 8 gets to play against tier 10, but the ones that do get to be (almost) alone in their struggle.

The reason someone would complain about being top tier in t8 ship, is because you get more xp in T10 games if you perform well...

So far playing T8 i have always been top tier, for me the problem was never exactly being T8 in a match with T9/T10s, it was the fact that you were usually the sole T8 on your team and that comes with too many problems.

What i've seen so far is quite an even mix of tiers in matches, which is much much better, has improved overall match quality.

This patch is actually really good, positive changes, what have you done with WG, whoever you are.....
