Tiers and matchmaking for carriers

Curious.. just had a match with a Tier 7 (red team) Ranger and Ryujo facing off against our T6 and T5 carriers. Is this a thing? 

I apparently thought wrong - that a T7 would not face a T5, yes? Nobody was div'd. 

If this is permitted - how the heck does WoWS/WG even begin to consider that a fair fight, a balanced match?

I forget where multi-CV per side games are supposed to end, I think tier 4 though 7 can have them, but it might be 4 though 6 now.

If it is still 4-7, then a tier 5 can still see a tier 7, but both teams will have the same tiers of CV's. It's been mirror match making for a long time. You should never see a tier 6 and 7, v/s a tier 5 and 6.

Sounds like a bug.   I would suggest submitting a ticket and replay.  It happens every now and then, just like those rare matches that still occur with one side getting a CV and the other not, or 2 CVs on one side and 1 on the other.   Extremely rare but due to some bug still occur on occasion.   Submitting a ticket and replay will help WG solve the issue and stop it in the future.

That is VERY strange, Reitz.

 

Personally, I'd like to see a small change to MM that lowers the highest battle tier where you can see 2 CVs per team from tier 7 to tier 6.  My reasoning is that tier 7 CVs are the first of the heavy Fleet Carriers, whereas tier 6 and below are either Escort or Light CVs, which have much smaller hanger compliments.

 

And like Syndicated said, if you have a screen shot or a replay, I'd submit a support ticket to let WG know about this occurrence, so that they can fix it.

Well, thought I screenshot it but nope... I didn't. Replays are flushed too... If I see it again I'll ensure I get a screen capture. I did see a game where two rangers were on one team this morning too... which is kinda strange as that literally becomes a carrier game. 

Next time - as they say - i'll get a screen capture.

Never seen that happen before myself.  Being overtiered seems to be a 61% thing for me though.  30+ game, sample recently, on a Premium Account.  Not even sure how this is possible, if there are supposed to be no bots in the game.
