It is currently 12:55 AM EST.

So I took my T-44-100 out for a spin tonight for the first time in almost 2-3 weeks and I went on a 6-game tear in which I only won two games and in 4 of those games I was bottom tier and in one game I was mid-tier. For this session I have an awful 1,253.80 WN8 and a paltry average damage of 1,063. My favorite match of the evening was the final one I had - tier 10 game. On Ruinberg War (seriously Ruinberg needs to be removed). My first shot of the game BOUNCED off the front of an AMX50B and his first shot into me set me on fire and removed 3/4 of my health and also damaged my ammo rack and I'd already used my repair kit. At that point I quit the match turned the game off.

 

Idk why but late nights have often been an awesome time to play, ESPECIALLY on NA-West back when it was still active but now late nights have become an awful time to play; I'm almost never top-tier anymore and the amount of tier 10's hogging the MM is absolutely ridiculous.

 

Methinks the server merger brought the overall quality of gameplay down quite a bit for late night tanking now.

 

Late nights used to be that "hidden gem"-like time to play but that has not been the case the past few months in my experience :facepalm::D

Welcome to my world.  PMM is my friend.

 

I'd gladly wait an extra minute for MM balance.

I take a nap during the day so I can stay up at night. 

 

Do you ever post threads anymore that aren't small sample size freakouts?

My win rate solo on week days late at night is in the 30% range.

Please don't post a thread about getting the T-44-100 removed as you're bad in it. It's one of my favourites.

Also they won't remove maps unless absolutely required.

I play at NA East until 1:30am from time to time. Last night I noticed I was bottom-tiered a lot in my tier VIII. Maybe it was the Tusk contract or the ride on ops idk. I agree PMM is the way to go.

Did some late night tanking Wednesday night, and it wasn't so bad in Tier 5-7. Once I got into Tier 8 though it all turned to [edited].

I've had some great night tanking over the last couple of weeks, but do have the odd howler game and it turned into a few last night. Pick tanks and tiers depending on your tiredness and queue sizes. I sometimes pick tanks that I like playing as bottom tier late at night.

I have no idea what is going on but the T-44-100 doesn't feel right. My stats are awful in it lately and it's ruining my overall K/D ratio and damage per match. Most of my shots don't pen and some of them are missing heavily. It feels like this tank was stealth-nerfed recently....

I am on summer holiday.  I work as a special education staff member during the school year, so I get the summer off.  I usually stay up a little later during the summer months, as I am still busy during the day, but I do get to stay up later until the school year begins.  I suspect that is the case with a lot of players.

When there are fewer players in the lobby, the matchmaking engine has to look for desperate measures to allow battles to take place!

Thus, strange teams composition happen.

I was playing the EU server late two days ago, and if picking a Tier IX tank, all the battles I was confined to were 7 versus 7;

picking a Tier X, battles were 15 against 15.

I did the switch between Tier IX 13-90 and Tier X 13-105 several times, to verify.

I usually play only late nights, as a few of my friends live in New Zealand. Only time we get to talk, and play together. Some nights are good, some nights are bad. We play a lot of tier 10's also by the way.

From my experience it's always been that way. Late night you get the 20 something college age crowd that has a lot of time on it's hands to sink into the game.  The casual folks are in bed getting ready to work, and the school kids are in bed getting ready for school. 

 

So you really should play tier 10 or pmm tanks if you don't want to be cannon fodder with your tier 8 tank. During the day the tier 8 works because there are more tier 8s and plenty of bad players are in their tier 10 tanks but not late night. Tier 8 gets owned after midnight.

I am a "casual folk", and can get by with only a few hours of sleep, or skip sleep altogether if on a crusade.... the exception to the rule maybe?
