This is one of the worst games I have ever played when it comes to matchmaking. Every time im a tier 6 german cruiser I go up against tier 8's. Is it really that hard to cap it so you can only join a fight that is either ONE tier below or above you ??? I think not considering how much work was put in to make this game.

Too lazy or too "special" to find the already existing threads about the Matchmaker?!

 

What do you think: Who puts more effort in it? WG developing the game or you developing a certain play skill?

You should play Tier 4 then, it has +-1 Matchmaking ;)

First of all, tier 6 is in a relatively tough spot when it comes to matchmaking, both in the amount of games you get +2 MM and in the quality of the ships on tier 6. So I somewhat understand your frustration.

 

However, secondly, these games tend to be the ones that teach you the most. Doing well in them also ensures more experience and credits.

 

There is a lot of changes WG could make to matchmaking, but in my opinion, what you suggested is not needed.

Tier V, VI and VIII MM are tough spots on the EU server and get uptiered a lot. However WG has stated they won't do away with the +/- 2 MM.

 

That said, if you simply adjust your playstyle to account for the fact that you're the small fish in the pond, it's not terribly hard to do well even when bottom tiered. The german tier VI cruiser in particular is probably the single least effected ship when bottom tiered due to its good range, ballistics and amazing HE pen. Plus with the general lack of armour it doesn't even matter much if it's a tier VIII or a tier V ship shooting at you, they citadel you all the same.

If I at any time feel like the WoWs matchmaking is bad, I just boot up WoT and play a couple of battles. Then the WoWs matchmaker and me are best friends again.

If you think tier 6 is bad wait till you get tier 8 :Smile_teethhappy:

 

6s constantly meet 7s who have pretty good time seemingly being top tier almost as often as tier 10s, as 8s are too busy being cannon fodder for those same 10s.

 

(altho I have to admit, this week my 6s and 7s have met a surprisingly large amount of 8s)

And i thought that getting a 1v1 CV battle in random queue was weird.

The biggest issues with the MM is not the +/- 2 its when it matches uneven numbers of DDs and also when the skill of the CVs are not even ie potato vs unicum , and I know we will never get a skill based MM but having an even number of DDs per side should not be that hard given the population that play them.

But IMHO they should remove CV from the game totally and refund all exp and gold/money until they can balance them correctly, again I know this will NEVER happen but I can dream.

At least there are theoretical ways to make CVs function like other classes, so they are no longer the deciding factor in so many battles.

I don't think they should be removed, even if the CV rework takes longer than anticipated. 

Until then if I take out my Mutsu and end up in a battle with CVs, I'll just have to be okay with getting insta deleted if my CV is trash.

It just means that my Kii, Alabama and AA-cruisers get more play time.
