Tier 6 MM is a total crap. I constantly get into battles where three or four Tier 6 ships in a team challenge a horde of Tier 8s and a few Tier 7s.

 

WG PLEASE FIX DIS

They cant fix this.

It is down to what people are playing - simple math. The same math which puts T8 into T10 MM often too.

 

Many people play T10 because they see it as "endgame" content. T9 is usually a tier with fewer players (simply because you can play T10 right away), while T8 has more players, because there are a lot of iconic ships on that tier. Also many premium CVs are around now because they just released them.

T5-6 are played less, because most people only grind through those tiers. I dont see a reason to play T6 either :cap_old: If anything, i pick T7.

 

But there is no way to fix this, if anything, it will get worse the less people are playing on certain tiers.

Of course they can:

 

- patterns like in WOT
- divide T8 and T10 players by giving these tiers more 1-level battles

I still pick t6 over t7

With two exceptions, but those two ships doesn't make a full tier.

t6 MM is fine.

I like to fight against Gneisenau and Bismarck, now I'm so used to them..

But they could return Cleveland to t6, now t8 has a premium Cleveland and they could give Columbia? to t8 has a silver ship.

T6 is a fun tier. Some great ships, in fact T6 overall has some of the most balanced ships Tier for Tier. Aoba, Leander, La Gal, Fuso, Ryujo, Icarus, Farragut, Fubuki, Budyonny and Nuremberg are just a few. And some of the prem ships are flat out great. Arizona, De Grasse, Duca D’Aosta, Anshan, Monaghan, Makarov and Perth are just a few also. Also T-61 is one of the strongest DD’s in game for its tier.

 

Love playing Tier 6.

Have to admit Ranger isn’t one I played. Do like Ryujo. Yet to give Furious a real outing.

Tier 6 only get to see tier 6 and 8 carriers? Whereas tier 5 gets tier 4 and 6 carriers, tier 8 gets tier 6/8/10 carriers.

 

Tier 6 never gets to see tier 4’s, they effectively have a -1/+2 matchmaker, same as tier 5 that also has -1/+2.

 

Tier 5 gets the Gulio Cesare :cap_cool:

 

I’m not sure why the tier 6 should be worse than tier 5? Other than being exposed to better carriers?

 

Try tier 4, it’s a fun tier, max 5, min 3, and the tier spread is only +/-1.

T5 vs T7 is bad, but T6 vs T8 is just worse.

 

T5 DDs have very good concealment compared to T6/7 DDs, so thats usually no problem.

T5 Cruisers are extremely squishy, but it doesnt matter so much if you fight same tier cruisers or higher ones

T5 BBs are still dreadnought style, so they have better armor, usually only thin armor at Bow/aft section which other BBs can overmatch.

 

Now if you look at T6 BBs, which have paper armor all around which gets overmatched by T8 BBs, while at the same time they cant overmatch the T8 BBs because they are covered in 32mm armor. Its like every T8 BB would be a Yamato if you would compare it to hightiers.

For DDs, T8 has Concealment module.

Cruisers same as always, they struggle mostly when -2 on any tier.

All in all, I agree.

 

This is also where cruisers learn to be annoying, hiding behind islands, or kiting at max range.... One of the most annoying aspects when running high level BB’s.:cap_viking:

 

On the other hand, I do the same :cap_cool:

I've had it a few times especially as tier VI is now my favourite tier, but for the times I get into predominately tier VIII battles I just relax and think that there is also some other poor idiot on the enemy team thinking the same as me. The pressure is off, time for some artistry rather than the 'do this or do that' diatribe, it can be fun. Play to the situation you are in.

Not really, at tier 6. Even if you lose, if you do at the least SOMETHING during the game you still tend to earn anyways. Never had a game when I actually lost cretin... I mean creDITS, unless I was playing at tier 9 or 10.:cap_hmm:

 

But of course, I usually get myself premium time for the weekends (just a weekend player here).:Smile_Default:

In general my advice would be - dont play weak ships that are horrendously bad when bottom tier...

 

IF you HAVE to do it (ie a grind for something worthwile up the line and dont want to throw freexp on skipping it) either load up on camos and flags with +xp or go grind it out in ops (i know some ops hardcore tryhards will jump on me now but f* it) at least for t6 and 7 ships respectively when the apropriate op is running, t5 still gets decent mm in general and doesnt take so long to get through so you can do it in coop in a pinch as well so shouldnt be much of an issue and t8+ is, well high tiers, either take your medicine when bottom tier (more often then not) but get more xp and money for damage or wait for the rank season featuring the repective tier
