Has the MM been much better lately?

I don't think it's a coincidence but the last 20 to 25 battles I have played has been very well balanced. I have played BBs, DDs and Cruisers and have noticed that the teams have been much better. Have still lost a fair share but at least feel I had a chance to win or do well. Just want to see if anyone else noticed. Thanks

I'm pretty sure that the matchmaker is operating like it always has. What shows up in your match depends a lot on what the matchmaker has available to pick from and how long players have been waiting for a match. Recently, I got put into a 7v7 Random match with a DD and a sub on one team and only one DD on the other.

Players have complained about the matchmaker since this game was released.  I have been playing since the beginning of Open Beta...and I really just don't see an issue with the matchmaking.  Sometimes you are top tier, sometimes you are not.  There was a time when I agreed with many of those I saw complaining on this forum that I was bottom tier the majority of the time.  So, I started keeping track and have continued to do so to this day.  The results of that quickly refuted my initial beliefs.  I kept track of every game played in tiers 5 through 8 ships.  Here are my results:

Tier 5:  467 games played, 298 were bottom tier, or 64%.  However, 123 of those bottom tier games were only -1 tier.  Tier 5 is unique in this aspect.

Tier 6:  983 games played, 355 were bottom tier, or 36%.

Tier 7:  1176 games played, 305 were bottom tier, or 26%.

Tier 8:  1424 games played, 567 were bottom tier, or 40%.

Matchmaking is not as broken as I initially though it was.  The human mind simply tends to remember the negative experiences and minimizes the positive ones.

It all depends on how you look at it. I was just in a full tier 10 match where all 3 of our DD, 1 BB, and 2 CA were dead in the first 8 minutes. They did not die because of the MM, they died over the fact that they pretty much committed suicide. Both cruisers were lost at sea while sailing broadside to battleships. The DD died by rushing into caps, getting radared and killed. The BB died after going in with one of the DD right at the start. He then put out a single fire, set it on fire again, and then got torpedoed and died. So can you call this the fault of the MM? Not really. Needless to say, we lost.

I applaud your record keeping!

Negatives?

Like in Co-op? 

Force feeding either or both CVs and subs when no human has selected them?

Nah. I had another 2cv, 3 sub tier 8 game yesterday (I personally enjoy the change of pace, but almost everyone else despises them). Another 3 sub game today.

Two days ago was my weekly poopfest where I won 2 of 12, despite 2 krakens and 3 high calibers (included one tier 6 team that couldn’t break 400bxp).

Add HE spamming CAs/DDs from concealment to that list and it might be realistic.

Not from my side where most of the time - for the last week - where we lose the first ship (usually a DD), throw games late, and have the first 4 ships die in the first 5 minutes.  More than once - a BB was the first to die without subs/CVs in the game.

Hit or miss for me.  Friday, no losses in random/really nice games (great close games down to the wire), a real joy to play.  Now on Saturday and Sunday, shaking my head wondering where some of these players came from.  Frankly, a total crap shoot (it is what it is).  So, can I see any changes in MM?  No, just the luck of the draw as usual.
