I usually play in the early mornings when server populations are lower.  As a result, I get thrown in a disproportionate number of 7 v 7 games.  It is very annoying, even if I am top tier because there simply isn't a large enough hit point pool to make the matches worth it.


 

After thinking about it, I would much rather be thrown into a 15 v 15 even if I am down 3 tiers (aka low tier with scout match making) in most tanks.  I play mostly lights and mediums so it really wouldn't change much about how I would approach the match.


 

I don't think WG would ever make this change but curious what others thing about it.

How are 7V7 not worth it? XP and silver are altered to account for this and I can get better XP and silver from these games because I can usually get a fair percentage of the damage. If I was -3 this wouldn't be so easy. Or are you just worried about your WN8?

No I don't worry about my WN8.  And that is a good thing because I imagine it isn't very good anymore.  (Backstory:  I used to care too much and would get very irritated anytime I wasn't a Super Uni for the week.  While I was able to maintain that, it was more work than fun.  Now, I could care less and my play reflects that at times).

 

But I DO care about marks.  So I tend to stay away from tanks I am trying to three mark at those times.


 

But to be honest, I never realized the XP and silver earnings were modified during 7 v 7s.  If that is true, my argument really holds no water at all.

I chose 15vs15 with scout mm

But I would like to get rid of the restrictions.

If I play a tier 5 and the match maker doesn't find a only tier 5 game in lets say 20 seconds it should widen it about -1/+1 every 20 seconds. I don't care if I am in a tier 3 in a tier 10 battle. That could be great fun.

Of course only for more experienced players. So let's say a player that has at least 5000 games can be thrown in this match maker pool or any other kind of new player protection.

Nope, Ill rather deal with 7v7 or wait longer. Being taken out in a hit or two is even worse. 
“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

Have you tried switching to the other server if the population on one is too low for your games?

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

Only way i know for you to get those kinds of number is super low pops. how the hell are you getting that many games? Was playing a year ago at 1am-5am and didn't get that many.

^^this.

If you're not switching servers, I understand the many 7vs7, but if you just switch to the most populated server at any given time there's no way you can't find enough pop for 15vs15.
I only get 7vs7 occasionally when I seal club in tier 3 (which are quite rare tbh).
