OK, I'm so close to quiting WOWs if this crappy matchmaking system doesn't give me decent teammates on my team at least 40% of the time. over the past few days I've lost over 75% of my battles just because I had [edited] teammates. and everyone uses win rate as a determiner of skill, and my win rate is going down the drain due to no fault of my own. maybe it's just bad luck, but i'm sick and tired of it.alright enough with the general rant.

I'd like WG to make a better matchmaking system. Coordinate with warships.today and using everyone's wtr, make the total wtr of each team somewhat even. that way there's alot more even matches and alot more fun.

As for carriers matchmaking, I propose that the system take into account not just the fact that it's a cv at a specific tier, but also if it's a ranger, or a saipan, or a kaga. and also make it never put kagas against saipans tier 6 planes vs tier 9 planes is just hell for the kaga. but i've made a whole other thread of the saipans problems. anyways have the matchmaking system put carriers against other carriers with similar numbers of fighters. and due to only one loadout available for most us cvs it makes it easier.

for example at tier 7:

kaga can face ranger, other kagas, or non-as Hiryu

Ranger can face other rangers, kaga, hiryu, or 2 2 0 saipan

2 2 2 Hiryu can face other hiryus, kaga, ranger, or 2 2 0 saipan.            AS hiryu can face other hiryus, or saipan (don't worry plenty of saipans queue up so they wouldn't wait long)

2 2 0 saipan can face other saipans, ranger, or hiryu           3 0 1 saipan can face other saipans or AS Hiryu.

As you can see this isn't too restricting, it just prevents downright unfair match ups.

One more thing, make it so carriers can never be bottom tier in a match. So for example a tier 7 cv would never have to face the AA of tier 9 ships. And don't worry aa lovers, there's still the Cleveland and Atlanta that cv mains avoid at all cost. There has been way too many times I've been placed into a match where AA power is so strong me and the enemy cv barely fight because we're too busy avoiding AA bubbles. adding this will be a step to reduce that and make cvs fight each other more than godlike aa power.

I know they won't change the game just cause one guy said this is what he wants but i just can't keep quiet about this any longer, it's fed me up.

So you are asking for preferential match making for the most powerful class in the game.

Gimme the popcorn

Umm this changing which CVs see others could be greatly abused. This could also greatly increase the wait time for CVs.

Might want to duck under some detonation flags because well Nerd, you are going to have verbal incoming shots when the forumites get home from work.

For the second time I am cutting and pasting my response to two similar posts from earlier:

Matchmaking is the most often cited reason in "Screw You Guys, I Quit" posts here in the forums. If you look at the negative Steam reviews, it is second only to the inability to integrate your Steam account with your standard Wargaming account. IMHO it is about half the forum population who dislikes MM the way it is and about half that like it. Wargaming itself sees no problem with it even though quite a few players leave the game around tier 5/6. WoWS bleeds mid level players like a severed artery, this leads to fewer people at higher tiers. The solution is to drag lower tier ships into higher tiered games which just leads to more people leaving. It is a stupid solution but one that will not be dealt with because Wargaming says it isn't a problem... You go figure...

I put your post into Google translate and got:

"My completely broken t7 kaga is not over performing enough. So let's remove the few things that keep her in check. That way instead of competing with t9s for damage totals only the t10 can compete with her".

I agree and while we're at it lets have kaga count as a BB for match maker too. Just remove the hard mirror completely. I mean kaga only has t6 planes in a t7 cv. It's Not like midway has TBs 2 tiers under hers or that the stock shokaku still uses the same TBs as kaga at t8.
