So, first off, please forgive me as I am sure it has been brought up a 1000000000 times already lol. (But am on my phone)  But the matchmaking in this slow moving behemoth with a big gun seems REALLY unbalanced. Out of all the games I have played in it whether solo (or platooned) I have only had 2 games vs 6's (top tier), generally get 7's and the 8's come at about a 3-1 ratio to the 6's. I know of preferred matchmaking for some tanks, and light tanks over acheiving with their +3, but why oh why is this slow monster almost always out matched tier wise?

What do you expect you're an f*&^ing OI. In a t6 game your essentially kicking puppies so of course your going to have crap MM.

Well, I have been away from the game for 15 months or so. Last played on the 360, until about a week and a half ago. I decide to try something new and find even worse mm than I did going down the line for my kv4 and t32...which were horrible back then too

The human mind has an enormous tendency to remember the bad matchmaking games over the good ones.

Same way that bad news travels faster than good news.

Welcome to the broken Japanese heavy line. You're OP when top tier, pretty useless when bottom tier.

Don't one shot much above 4. I know the rng lol, but the most common 6's I run into are Shermans and I go ping, wait 30 seconds and go ping again. It will get better...was just frustrated not being able to do anything lol

I love my OI. Just like I love my Kaiju (shock, I know).

 

Japanese heavies are situationally awesome. Just get the hang of them.

 

If you're top tier, you will dominate (or should, I guess). 

If you aren't, pick your spots. Remember that you have a beast of a gun and amazing front armor, but you're also slow and a magnet for every arty and TD out there. 

 

The tank doesn't make the player; the player makes the tank.

Tier 6 is almost always a filler for tier 7 & 8 games these days.
Which is really unfortunate because if MM was only +1 maximum, it would be a whole lot more fun.

Now is not a good time to play tier 6. Matchmaking is flooded with tier 8 premiums. So you're gonna get a lot of bottom tier matches.

Park it for a while until tier population goes back to normal.


 

P.S. I had a game in my 140 yesterday, where I was the only tier X (save for one on the enemy team) and there were no tier IXs...only VIIIs.

Of course I couldn't do anything memorable because the enemy team melted in less than 3 mins. I'm sure I will never get another chance like that.

Premature ejaculation capping is fine. A win is a win, right? Who cares about greedy women chasing orgasms stett pedders chasing MOEs?

The Kaiju works fine, even when low tier. You just can't sit out in the open like a moron.
Try to hide your massive hull when possible and play more of a support role. ... Pretty much normal low-tier heavy play.

 

The gun still works well even with AP. Use gold on higher-tier Japanese heavies and IS-6's.

Preferential MM in an O-I? ... You might as well give PMM to everything.  :)

Never like to see a Japanese heavy coming straight at me at close range, whatever tier it is.

 

Side on however...

The two turrets on the front. You're welcome.

 

 

To the OP, the O-I and the O-I EXP are the 2 most OP tanks in the whole line.

Played with a bit of situational awareness they can turn the battle even in a T8 battle. I find the DERP good fun as well as the AP canon, so play around with that and see which one suits your play style, if you are in T8 matches alot go the DERP as some damage is better than no damage any day of the week. Especially with the Grille OP on atm you have the chance to ruin Borsigs with HE goodness.

An O-Ni managed to surprise my 131 last night, he was capping with a panther and a cromwell. Snapshot on the Cromwell to reset the cap and somehow bounced, he bizarrely tried to come at me and just face hugged me, bouncing all his shots (he had the time/space to go around me...). 3 shotted him. Panther than does EXACTLY The same, coming at me in a straight line and bounces ALL his shots, I ammo rack and engine him for full health. O-Ni still capping, our tank appears to have come off their cap so I have to stop this guy to win. I bounce my first APCR round off his cupola...he sits and does nothing. I think odd, ok maybe he's AFK. I sit behind the Cromwell anyway for cover and wait six seconds for the reload. Bounce again, this time off his LFG...he ruins me for 700 and kills me...damn derp gun. It's the only O-Ni I've ever seen run the derp. I assume whilst I was killing his buddies he was busy missing his shots, hence why he looked so still at the end.

Don't shoot the cupola or LFG on any of the O-I line tanks, go for the two canons on the front, you should have been able to pen them with your Tiger easy as.

If you can manage it in your tiger try and side hug him which should give you that guaranteed pen goodness

Tiger 131? It has the short 88 which has the boosted pen buff but even with prem it's still a lot less than the long 88 and you need RNG to be able to pen reliably. In theory ~194mm should be able to pen even the upper plate flat on in places.

Been playing the O-I recently and got 5 points pretty much every time. It's a beast at all tiers, out of 23 battles in it I won 18... Need I say any more?

 

DERP

 

That is all.
