the last few premium tanks i noticed, that i never be low tier at the first day and even the following days its not often

but... the tanks do not have PMM

 

last tank is the russian Tiger: T-VI-100

i bought it thuesday and streamed all my battles from the last 2 days... only once low tier.

and this is what i noticed with all the other new premium tanks, too ( brick, javelin, iron rain, amx cda and more)

 

after a week, maybe 5 days, i am low tier more often.

do you have the same experiance?

is there a hidden PMM? so youtubers can make more great videos and have better games to force other people to buy the tank, too?

or just all, who own that, so they tell in the forum how great the tank is.

 

what do you think?

if you dont believe me, watch yourself: T-VI-100 for example

Played the T-IV a few times yesterday and never saw IX's either.

Don't believe in a hidden pmm though.

There is a hidden pmm in many tanks I would say. In my King Tiger I am 70% low or mid tier. In my Yazi I am 70% top tier. So I believe in it!

A similar feat that actually WAS in the game was called "honeymoon matchmaking".

Pretty cool stuff.

Matchmaking is based on a tank's battle tier rating, rather than simply +2/-2. There are ten tiers, as everybody knows, but there are 11 battle tiers. Some tanks like the lycan have a higher battle tier rating than thier equal tier counterparts, so are almost never top tier. Other tanks the inverse is true. Maybe this has something to do with it?

but than it would be constant ...

 

but the tanks are only have the "benifit PMM" within the first week sold out

I held a flank for a short while in a tier IX team death match on Severogorsk with one of those helping yesterday. Your just getting lucky.

No luck involved what isn't stupid and already admits to Special Matchmaking on your first game with any tank.. how we add one plus one.. people bash tanks they hate or praise tanks they love... In game you are more likely to buy a tank you see do consistently well.. how better to ensure new sales then extend the special Matchmaking a week or so... Everytime a tank dominates it sells...

 

This is be ess but a legit way to sneak some good word of mouth sales

There is definitely hidden tank tier ratings. I have hundreds of battles in my snakebite and don't remember ever being top tier.

Special Matchmaking the first 30 seconds then open it up if nothing can be found.. not even a hard algorithm to implement.

I agree. Good marketing strategy to sell more premiums.  Quick mastery badges and videos showing great results shortly after the release of new tanks that are shown by early bird buyers.

That's because it has scout mm.

I see your new here, welcome to the forums. I'm gonna give you a link to the Battle mechanic that shows how the tanks are set up. There is one caveat though. It is super out of date so don't fully trust the charts especially where light tanks are concerned. Sometime this year (hopefully soon) WGC is working on updating the MM. Rubilleto is correct, some light tanks still get special battle tier match making and weighting and the Snakebite is one of them.

When there are many more people at level 7 and 8 than level 9 and 10 you will be more often top tier than low tier .... when there are more than 9 and 10, it's the opposite . It depends on the meta of the moment. With the exchange program, the personalized offers and the new premium tank there are currently many players in level 7 and 8. If you play at level 6 it's not good, if you play at level 8 it's good for you.

 

This week I saw some games with only level 8 tanks!

Platooned with a random nice guy in our two Tiger 1s and we killed everything in sight.

That isn't hidden. That is scout MM.
