We had just loaded in and our CV states (see chat below)  and with that he's gone AFK sitting dead in the water.  We reported him as AFK, but deliberately dropping from a match should give a more serious penalty. GRR! Just had to vent.

Yep. I do not play T 8 because of the matchmaking. I tried , once last week PvE just to play my Atago. Two t 8 one to and the rest t10. Why bother.

But I did play out the match, for as long as I  lasted anyway. Will not be back or getting any t8 or higher ships for a long time.

T8 MM is the worst in the game. Not only is it very rare to be top tiered you usually find yourself & 1 or 2 other T8's against a slew of T10 ships. This does get frustrating.

one of the many reasons I wish they would switch to a +1/-1 MM system...

T8 always gets screwed and he is not the only player I have heard of leaving a match because of it. Not to mention players who have left the game entirely because they thought the match making was never fair. I know personally I would wait an extra minute or so for better match making in my T8s... but its a rant that WG will never acknowledge. As of know they are basically unplayable.

Thought this thread was about Texas. I was disappointed. :Smile_great:

Nah, Texas is tier 5, never see a TX battle. You are just a victim of acronym creation like me most of the time.

It can be rough at times, especially in stock ships. First 5 battles in thr new Shokaku stock were vs t10. Didn't get a t8 match until I already had the planes upgraded. Thankfully people kept splitting up so I still had work to do.

 

I'd like to see them bring back the skill that uptiers your planes a bit when facing higher tiers

I'm so tired of the MM complaints, particularly Tier VIII.  Give me a break, suck it up and play as best as you can.  Some of the best games I've had are in Tier VIII ships when I'm bottom tier.  No, Tier VIII isn't bottom tier all the time, probably not even 50% of the time.

SMH, just complain in chat like everyone else and continue playing like a good teammate, because after all this is a TEAM game.  I have an 86% win rate in my Atago and they’ve all been tier 10 matches.  

Unlike my GK with a 44% win rate because of terrible teammates like you who either suicide or leave the game because....

Item #1:  Tier 8 planes are expensive at 9,000 credits a splash.

Item #2:  Tier 10 AA is way overpowered for anything tier 8.  Need to approach Worchesters and Des Moines with FULL SQUADS just to have a survivor score any hits.  Otherwise, those planes are vaporized.  Some ships, I've approached with a full flight - at high speed, just to have them never make it far enough to drop.

Item #3:  The Bombs and torps have been nerfed to just an annoyance - the only RNG luck is to score fire or flooding.  In the Graf, it's common to have 32K flooding and 5K torp damage (in a good game).

Item #4:  Out of 6 games I tracked (to look at economy), ZERO games at top tier.  Half were tier 9, and the other tier 10.  Usually ending up lower middle to bottom in the ranks.  There were exceptions, but silly-good RNG was carrying me on those.

THAT BEING SAID...

The operator goofed.  He should have left his planes on the deck and auto-pilot'd the ship into the nearest cap.  Those secondaries will seriously cripple and outright delete any cocky DD stupid enough to get close without cover.  And if the cap is contested...   It's a wonderful RAM.   And hey!  No Ammo costs in the repair column!

EDIT:  And some Important NEED TO KNOW information about US - 5" secondaries...    They are worthless against the Graf.

You should always give it a go. I'm not affected too much by T8 MM but my buddies and I are almost always surprised when we're top tier, more so than other tiers. "Holy crap we're top tier," T8 life in a nutshell.

Some ships just don't uptier well. This is a major issue and WG is overdue to bring in +/-1 MM, at least for T7-10.

Going afk or dc'ing just because you don't like the MM spread is unsporting and childish, regardless of tier or ship type.

Seriously?  The CV player thought that THAT was "too many tier 10's"????   I see 4 tier 8 BBs and a pair of DDs that would make excellent targets.  And that's half the enemy team.

I remember the days when MM was +/-3 tiers.

Well, WG clearly doesn't agree with you.  At a recent CC event in St Petersburg,I remember watching the video of a dog and pony show and part of it was a Q&A.  And someone asked about +/-1 tier MM, and got quickly shut down.  It seems that +/-1 tier MM is a total no-go for WG.

Honestly I am suprised I haven't seen more of this.

You need to play tier 8 cvs in tier X games.   You are pretty much useless especially if there are few DDs.    You may get lucky and get that one low AA ship alone in the water but its VERY rare.    I am lucky to break 20-30k in Tier X games.   Your planes get eaten alive.   Its boring.    So I completely see where this CV captain is coming from.  I DO NOT agree with what he did.  But I understand

Well, he is in the Graf Zeppelin, and probably only the Bismarck would be an easy target, if it’s alone.  Everything else, including the DDs, would have been a pain in the but to go after.

Hey look, another week, another record 

http://maplesyrup.sweet.coocan.jp/wows/ranking/20190720/na_week/average_class.html

Lowest CV players and match totals since the rework, 8.5 is breaking records every week.   Great balancing job WG.  :fish_palm:

High Tier CV games played on NA is down 36% from pre-8.5 to today.     Even low tier CV games is falling, after a short up-tick as the player who enjoy CV attempted to avoid the AA by going down in tiers, but I guess its not much better there.
