Dear WG - if you want to make games like this I will simply log out to start the match.  I'm just not going to play in this type of match...it would be better not to make it or wait for more players.

This had nothing to do with WG. It had everything to do with one of the CV waiting in que to long and forcing the timer to start a game.

This is your answer. The matchmaker waits a maximum of five minutes for a Random match and then starts the match with what it's got. There is some evidence suggesting that Divisions can also lead to this occurring more frequently, as can choosing a high tier ship at a time when there are few players online.

Yep, blame the CV who waited in queue for 5 minutes and more than likely it was the enemy one in a div. IMO once 5 minutes hits it should throw you back to port and not force a battle.

And then deal with the reports. You're going to have to play to make an impact, or suffer consequences of quitting without even trying to win the game. (I've won worse odds.)

Blame the low hightier CV population for this MM. Which is also WG's fault as CV's are currently in such a way that the population will forever stay low.

I will....  i won't play in that game again.  If I was a tier X or even IX I will play but I'm not going to waste my time in the only tier 8 (-2 spread) and that sort of match - this is a game and there shouldn't be sets of time when you are just cannon fodder for other players as if we are all taking a turn having good games and bad games.

At certain times there is just not enough high tier players on. So what should WG do... let the time go to 5 min and start a game or make it so you could wait 5 hours without a game starting. I would rather play a game with less players than not at all.

They should just kick people back to port with a message to try a lower tier ship as its not about "not playing" its about not being able to play quickly in the tier ship you may want.....this simply rewards the people to division up at high tiers like this at certain times to ensure they can stomp the enemy.  However, honestly if this happens again and I am in a equal tier ship to everyone else Id play that out.

I have seen this happen in lower tiers also. Other night i was on and there was less than 2k players online. I had to wait for both high and mid tier games. Being that i work 2nd shift late night games are my thing. So i am used to waiting and teams that are short players.

Yeah, no. Not a good enough reason. You're then confirming your team's loss. You guys had two Battleships to their one. Should've easily been able to sink their Montana and cruisers. You're Midway looks like a potato, there's nothing that can be done there, but it is not impossible to deal with a Midway's drops. Now leaving the game early instead of trying? You're confirming your team's loss and setting it in stone. Just like how in WoT people who suicide because they end up in T10 games are just setting their teams up for a loss instead of using some semblance of skill to try and turn the tide of the match.

I understand why you'd say that and I respect your opinion on the issue.  However, the players in that game played just to end the game feeling it was a loss no matter.  They ended up rushing just to get it over with.  I'm just not interested in playing in a game like that.  MM shouldn't make games that are 90% set to win on one side just to appease that side due to the ships they wanted to insist on taking - and then expect us to be the Bots to face them.

If MM wanted to make it more far we should have received a few more ships and then it could have been entertaining.   Isn't that the point of the game to be entertaining?

I have been in a cv in matches like this, typically only waited a few moments before getting pulled. Typically because the other CV waited for 3+ minutes. On the plus side I usually dominate them.
