I have played a few games in the last 24 hours. Out of those games, I have seen about 3-4 matches where it was only tier 8, or tier 10. Is this a new common theme with match making?

The new matchmaking of having a fixed percentage of games where you have to be top tier seems to force a all tier match on occasion.  T10 gets dragged affected because T9 matches also get forced to being top.

I saw the same thing with tier 8 yesterday. Had a match just all tier 8s (was the only time I played tier 8 top tier and not bottom tier).

match making can be bad at certain times of day. 

 

When the player count is around 3,000 this can happen when there is more ships in a higher tier than your same tier to choose from in the queue, 

at the peak time of around 13,000 players it has a tenancy to do this also

Yes, it is. I don't mind it in the least, because I can live with not beating up T6 if I don't have to be T10's whipping boy.

So here's a question--

How fun was that game where all ships participating were the same tier?

Another question--

How would you rate how fun it was compared to a game where most of your opponents have a 2-tier advantage on you?

I actually don't mind being bottom tier. For all of the tier 8 games that I was bottom tier, I came in the top 5. It actually provides more credits and xp. I didn't have as much fun with all 1 tier.

I didn't ask about credits/Xp. Credits/xp is a post-match thing, not something that impacts you during the match.

Was the actual battle fun?

Much more fun. 

 

Not very. In a t7 CA playing against a bunch of t9 dd and BB  with some t8 CA is just really tough, and is usually a quick trip back to port for me unless my team is the far better of the two.

 

I play off and on between 1400 and 0400 est. I find best mm in the mid afternoon. After 0000 it gets really bad. Would be interesting to see a statistical chart of a average 24 hour cycle of how many players are on at the top of each hour.

Yeah. I think it's fun to be bottom and out do upper classed ships. This is a video game and video games should present challenge. When it's all tier 10 or all tier 8 etc. people tend to stay back even more.
