So I've been collecting some information today, only playing in my Tier 8 Amagi. I have half-decent stats so I'm starting to think that factors into it.

 

Anyhow, can you guess what percentage of my games were in Tier X? Let's see how many people get it correct.

 

I played 16 games in my Amagi today which the information was collected from. Although a small sample size, I will continue to note down the relevant information.

Might want to make it clearer in the question that this relates to T8 ships!:Smile_hiding:

You also need to try your experiment at different times of day, to see how number of players online affects things

16 games is not a lot. Give us feedback after 160.

True. Hence why I said it was a small sample size. Though if you roll a die 16 times, it should be approximately the same results as if it was rolled 160 times.

 

Just an update though, up to now:

 

In 19 Tier 8 games:

 

5 Battles as top tier.

 

14 as bottom tier in Tier X games.

 

Of those 14 games, I was the ONLY Tier VIII in my team for 6 of those.

 

That's approximately 78% of games I am up-tiered to Tier X.

 

As you suggest though, I will keep a record.

Not really. The results are very different.

There is a reason why the "Law of large numbers" has the word "large" in it.

I hope for you that you were bottom tier 100% of the time. More exp :D

I'd rather be able to participate in a battle. Not have 8km less range, 50mm less gun size and half the health.

 

As for the LLM, has matchmaking information been released that specifies the exact percentage of games where you should be up-tiered? Otherwise I won't know exactly how many top tier battles I have to look forward to!

 

As for the past 22 battles, 17 of those have been tier X battles. I can't wait for my 17/22 being top tier. I shall certainly let you know when that occurs. :Smile_great:

It's a "problem" all the way through the tech-tree.

 

The difference in power is too big for ships 2 tiers apart, which is most notacibly for BB and CL's.

 

There are ships that are able to cope with the Tier +2, but most are strugling, some even does not like a Tier +1.

 

DD's may be the exception, they can stay concealed, unless directly engaged by higher tier DD's dedicated DD hunters.

 

It would be nice if there was a spread of 1 instead of the current 2.

 

In my opinion at least.

Not saying it is fun having such a bad mm streak, but range in Amagi should be somewhat sufficient imho...

Range is that last thing thats keeping the Amagi down... In fact if you shoot at more than 20 km in most BBs, youre doing it wrong.

I think that last sentence is formulated a bit unfortunate.

I think you want to state that in 78% of your T8 games you were in T10 battles.

It reads, however, like 6/14=0.78 and that ain't right.

I personally believe that MM should not allow single ship of a given tier. There should be a minimum for that. Unfortunatelly that leads to even worse MM.

The thing that I would like to have is option to exclude my T10 from T8 games (it is fun only first three times to devstrike a NC while in Yamato).

As stated previously (by me) that this is not an option because we have Asashio (that for some reason is supposed to actually be of some use).
