I thought the new MM did not allow failed divisions? The other day I was in a division with a Tirpitz while playing Akatsuki and we got pulled into a tier 10 battle. I'm not complaining I just thought that it could not happen. Anyone else run in to that?

You got pulled up to T10 because you divisioned with a T8 ship.  MM will always base the MM on the highest tier ship in a div, which in your case was the Tirpitz (which is exposed to T10 matchmaking).

 

The only way to prevent this is by only divisioning with same tier ships.

Right I understand why it happened I just thought it couldn't. I guess I assumed they went by the lowest tier ship in a division. Again it's not that I mind all that much, tier 7 in a 10 match just makes me a bunch of credits.

So basically you assumed that divisioning a T7 with a T8 would mean the T8 would never see T10 battles anymore? That's a bit exploitable / abusable, don't you think?

I suppose it could be - T7/T8 Div in a tier 9 wouldn't be but in a T5 bottom tier, it would be a seal clubbing.

And for that reason is why MM is based on the highest tier ship.

I wonder if there are any lower tier ships that would actually have an advantage in a high tier battle.  Maybe something absurd, like a V-25 with concealment expert (4.9km detection range) and torpedo armament expert (34 second torpedo reloads).  I know it would be dealing with radar and hydro, but it's so small it's kind of hard to hit even if you can see it.  Maybe add the flag that gives the 5% speed boost (from 36 kts up to 37.8, and with the speed boost consumable it would be  what? Around 40 kts?).  Of course, if it gets hit by ANYTHING from a tier 9-10 ship, it's instantly deleted.  But if it manages to actually kill a tier 9-10 ship, the points would be outrageous.

Lert was almost correct - I actually thought it was based on both ships in the division so a T7/T8 division I thought would only see T6 bottom to T9 top which would be normal for both ships.

It would be fun to take a V-25 into the Training Room and beat on a Montana, it would take all day to kill it.
