Wow you sure got some fun MM here WG, how many more years of testing until you come to your senses and do something about this? -1/+1 this decade?

You know it's bad when even the unicums are getting tired of the matchmaking range.

MM always has, currently is, and always will be a source of anger in these here free to play vid games.  Moreover why OP are you upset with a nice win rate like yours?  Stat slave?

Too agressive?

 

Unless it was a 15-20k Dev Strike, a GS should never have been close enough the NC wanted to shoot at it. Same thing with the Farragut; unless it was going for a point-blank torpedoe ambush from terrain; it never should have been close enough to a Bismark to get spotted, if for no other reason because of the secondaries. (Unless radar, hydro, or pesky aircraft.)

Why should I even play T5 or 6 when it's not even fun, WEEGEE doesn't even realize this.

 

Players do NOT play to get F'd over again and again.

I actually like being uptiered to Tier 8 in my Leander; way more XP for nailing North Carolinas!

 

though, yes, often being uptiered can sap the fun out of the game, particularly for new players.

haha. Right. NC can range out to 27 kms with the right mod choices. I run that in Monty and can put shells on ships all the way out to that range. Graf Spee has no choice but to come under the NC's guns. 

The stupidly fxxked MM for T5 and 6 is why all those ships are port queens in my port. Not fun to be constantly killed by ships two tiers up. Basically, WG has constrained meaningful MM choice to T4 or T9-10. Totally wrong, and frankly, it is hugely unethical to sell all those premiums in those tiers and then announce that those tiers are screwed by the MM revision.

I still think the solution to most of this issue is simply revoking the preferential MM on T4s, allowing them to match with T6 again. This way, T6 goes back to +/-2 instead of the current +2/-1.

T5 still gets a bit shafted, but should hopefully see more middle tier games since T4s would now be getting pulled up to fill slots in T6 games.

I was thinking nearly the exact same thing.

Sorry; been so long since I cared to play NC I couldn't remember the ranges. (As much as I wanted NC, I can't stand the thing because it's constantly getting screwed over because of T10 games. Prefer to use Missouri.)

 

Doesn't change what I said though; GS was too close for it's own good, most likely.

When I get screwed over in a game, I will sometimes go play a "fun" solo game.

 

Well I get bottom tiered so it's even more fun.

Yep, it's why I sold my NC, didn't like the tanky style of play, and got tired of grappling with GKs and Yammys all the time. At T8 I keep Amagi and Tirpitz, but I really only play Kutuzov in Randoms since it uptiers well. I haven't played Atago in a Random match since WG destroyed the MM and took so much fun from the game. I don't play any T8 DDs except Kiev, it's not fun and engaging to play high tier DDs, especially when you are facing DDs two tiers above you. 

MM desperately needs fixed -- they've improved it tremendously, but still needs more work. Every time I load into Domination matches in which one side has only one DD while the other has two, or one side has three radar ships while the other has none, I say to myself "Do the devs even play this game?"

It ain't gonna happen. I've had some great games when I've been bottom tier.

 

The only reason it feels like it's "every game" is because of the protected MM of T4.

 

Honestly they should just let it go back to every tier having the original +/- 2 save T1.

Yeah, there is nothing like the feeling you get while running all over the map in your tier 5 Fujin with it's AA rating of 2 while you are continuously spotted by tier 9 planes off of a Saipan.

I think WG's idea is that playing tiers 5 and 6 is fun.

 

For the tier 7 and 8 players.

No, this game desperately needs its players to stop whining and put their man pants on, or turn on their man cards.  The number of wusses here is pathetic.

As for the last sentence, I do agree that in domination mode, having a mismatch in the numbers of DDs can give the side with the numerical advantage a devastating advantage.  Ditto for radar ships, though in their case, it doesn't matter what the mode is.

Graf Spee is absolutely OP in tier 6. I mean... if some scrab like me can get 66% win rate in it, then you know... it's by definition OP as ffff. 

 

Same tier MM will make many current "average" ships brutally effective all the time. You'll get different sorts of complains by then.

You love pulling the man-pants card, you sure you're not one of those mall-cops that intimidate people for no reason? Seems like you fit the bill.

And yet it can't do anything in T8.

No, I just don't like self-entitled whiners who refuse to suck it up and face a challenge.
