Tier 8 Matchmaking is Painful

Tier 8 matchmaking is by far the worst.  People need to be aware of the issues with the amount of times tier 8s get pulled into tier 10 games. 

Just check out the footage of this tier 8 battle below.

For just a few easy payments of doubloons a month, you too can spread tier X bully awareness, and help Poor Prinz Eugen with his undoubted psychological  damage from buying directly into tier 8.

Send all payments into the mail by directly inserting it into your local time machine.  This will spare Prinz Eugen from explaining to his parents why he became an over-glorified reef.      

(Edit) Please take this as satire, no ships were harmed in the making of this image... :cap_like:

I spend my hard-earned premium time so WG will send T8s into my T10 jaws. Converted all my XP by buying doubloons. Ha! Stickin’ it to the man, WG!

Wait a sec...

That was the most recent depiction of t8 MM you could find?  Those citadel ribbons haven't been around for a loooooong time.

It’s really a shame, isn’t it? Some of the best, most historic ships ever built, and most of my favorites, historically speaking, are in this tier. I suspect they just don’t get played as much as they should because of routinely being placed in T10 matches. “Getting Gud” definitely helps and anything that doesn’t get you killed, at this tier, will surely make you stronger.

I'm sorry but if you cant handle +2 matchmaking, then move down a tier. Tier 8s can knock tier 10s just fine

 

Please, downvote me:fish_palm:

I honestly mostly agree, the point of this post is to point out the disparity in tier 8 matchmaking, then to exemplify the over-embellishment of the problem by the community.  Tis a Joke, why you heff to be mad?  :cap_like:

Couldnt agree more with this. Never really like the whole "Getting Gud" saying. its about as useless as the military saying "suck the suck." The whole problem with an 8 ship in a 10 game is they are the first targeted. I mean yeah sure this will get you stronger in time learning how to deal with it. But in the end it only supports passive play. In my opinion tier eight should only be plus one in each category. But im in the minority in this and will most likely be prosecuted for it! but meh! I always try to roll the dice in tier 8. Though im starting to play it less and less.

T8 is definitely painful and I definitely support 1 up 1 down matchmaking, but my Atlanta is the only ship I have ever driven that achieved a Priority Target score of 10 =D

Lots of people have tested this, including Mr Lert if I recall. It's pretty much 50/50.

 

Never mad. Just having a little fun with people beating dead horses. Kinda like the anti radar extremists:Smile_teethhappy:

WG placed most of history's most popular and famous ships in tier 8. It's a real shame.

There is a problem but it is not the MM, it is that it is too easy to play tier 10's regularly. With permanent camouflage it takes a complete face plant to lose any credits. They can't remove those camouflages so they need to incentivize playing in the middle tiers instead of tier 10.

Going from memory he came up with 45% tier 8 or tier 9 matches which is not really bad when you step back and look.

It was 55% of your time fighting tier 10. That is not symmetrical. That is literally the majority of your time spent bottom tier. The remaining 45% was equally distributed between the other 2 possible outcomes.

 

Ideally they'd all be ~33-35%, a roughly even distribution. This is significantly off balance and from a player perspective feels terrible and tiresome.

No, it was 37% tier 8 and 18% tier 9 for the 55 percent number and 45% tier 10. The over population in tier 10 is throwing that ideal out of wack. The question is how to get those people that live in tier 10 to drop down to the middle tiers more often.

Which is why I won't be purchasing T8 premiums anymore.

Wow, I am honestly surprised how few people bothered to take the original post as a form of satire.  Learn to laugh a little guys!

This is precisely the problem. And only the players and WG giving into them are to blame.

I think that you mean that you'd be "persecuted", not "prosecuted".
