For battle Tier 11 of course :P. Remember battle tiers are not tank tier. Battle Tier 11 would be equal to a Tank Tier match of 9's and 10's only.

Gotcha. I’ve seen it mentioned before, but never quite knew there was a difference in tank tier vs. battle tier.

It means there will be no tier 8's in the match.

EDIT: Ninja'd twice by posting the question below.

 

Thanks for posting this up Max!

 

Still curious if the AMX Chaffee has just regular scout matchmaking or if it got a little funky with the light tank changes and if the Snakebite has standard tier 6 matchmaking or kept its "preferential scout" matchmaking.

 

Keep on tankin'! :honoring:

It's on the chart for unique matchmaking to view what it has.

I see the AMX Chaffee is now the one remaining tank for unis to show off their light tank skills

Again, I have managed to learn something new. Cool! Here I thought there were tier elevens entering the game at some point down the road. LOL

So.......What tier does the AwPanther see?  I am seeing lots of mentions of other tanks but I haven't seen anyone mention the aPanther.  It would be a nice thing for it to be top tier now.

290+ tanks played haven't caught 'em all yet  539543

 

Think you are the best at WOT this link might explain why you are so good at this game.

Thanks for the info, although It is not as clearly presented as it could be.

 

The above charts showing the actual tiers that tanks can see instead of "battle tiers" (whatever they are) would be much easier for us old casual gamers to understand.

This. They gave us a chart with no explanation for how to translate it. How bout just a simple 

X-tank sees X-X tiers. Why's everything gotta be coded? Simple question, what's tiers does the AMX Chaffee play now? What's the highest tier it will see?

Sorry but why do the Snakebite and AMX Chaffee still get screwed over with the matchmaking still ??? why not let them see Tier 6 also

It isn't that complicated...

 

The AMX chaffee will see battle tiers 7 8 and 9. 

The highest tier tank that can be in battle tier 9 is 9... so you it will at worst (or best) see tier 9s.

The lowest battle tier 7 can have tier 5s.

When a person resorts to attacking the other person rather than focusing on the issue (aka argumentum ad hominem), it becomes pretty clear they have nothing else to contribute and are wrong.

Becuase they weren't nerfed to fit tier 6.

 

They are essentially tier 7 tanks with an extra bonus boost from being tier 6. (not exactly but thats the general idea) 

 

WG could probably move them to tier 7 and add whatever the different bonuses were into their premium bonuses but people would probably complain about that too :hiding:

That wouldn't work as there are so many if/and/buts on what tier's it would face. Battle Tiers is how matchmaking works and is the most clear way to show what see's what. If you want to learn more, you can read the Matchmaking guide. This thread was only giving players the new charts as the Guide is still in the process of being updated.

I'm actually a little gutted the AMX Chaffee DOESN'T see tier X anymore, all the spotting assist that comes with those games is bloody juicy.
