Too many tier 10s....that the point?

WG said that they would try to reduce the no of t8s in t10 battles as much as possible. So "working as intended" :)

They didn't say that Tier 8s would never see tier 10s. They said the frequency in which they saw tier 10s is reduced. So until you give me data from 100 battles of you in a tier 8, then we can talk about whether or not the frequency of tier 8s in tier 10 matches have been reduced or not.

FYI: Before this change, the frequency was roughly 60%, give or take 5%

Yup the new MM algorithm, working as intended...

Yes, that would be along the lines of what Wargaming said they wanted to happen as I understand it.

Everyone wants it easy; nobody seems to want a challenge. In the Army (at least in my day) the training was difficult and many of us thought that we'd never get through it. After we graduated, we looked back and said to ourselves "If I got through that then maybe I can get through anything."

Or, maybe WG should issue a special award for those who find themselves up-tiered so that they can feel better.

I don’t play tier Vllls anymore not even my beloved Kutuzov....

Still seems to be lots of Juicy Vlll targets to shoot at when playing my Zao and Hindenburg

Seems to me it is working 100% as intended. 

See, there aren’t another 3-6 T8s in either team also struggling through a T10 battle; instead they are clubbing T6s. :cap_haloween:

OP, you are just the fodder. Embrace it!

Better to have a few lone bottom tier games than forced bottom tier with so few top tiers that a few individuals decide the outcome of every match. Besides, both Atago and Cleveland are great and don't have issues uptiering.

They also said they would try to reduce the number of bottom tiers where there was only one T8 in a T10 match.  Here we have three T8s and two T9s.

Many T8's can compete with T10's. Especially the DD's in particular. An Atago should be able to cope by going into "stealth mode" and using those beautiful torpedoes it has to drop battleships. And escorting DD's is also a viable strategy.

Although I will admit it sucks to be bottom tier, I will also say it's completely do-able. T8 and t10... T5 and T7... what's the difference? It's nothing new to any of WG's games.
