I like the plus 1 minus 1 matchmaking to me it's more fun I've been playing for 5year on and off cause I was getting frustrated trying to grind tanks tier8's only toget one shotted by tier 10's. I truly hope this becomes permanent

I haven't had so much fun in World of tanks since this event in a long time, I really hope they make this a permanent change.

Pretty annoyed, I only buy PMM premiums, and they are now obsolete. Will I get a gold refund for them all.

I really don’t think there should be any refunds in order. If they received preference on matchmaking in this is simply guaranteeing them such, should be fine w/o refunds. I guess besides technically they’re not changing anything about the tank itself they are changing how the matchmaking works. Basically an update of the game as opposed to individual values of tanks. I understand the frustration, but I own a ton of premium tanks, and I’m not really concerned at all. I think it would serve them well anyway

the worst thing about the +1 event was that it came to an end.

 

the game is much better off being +/- 1 tier. going back to +2 really brings home just how useless some of the tanks are in the +2 environment.

Better but...

 

MM is still terrible. Mismatched tier numbers. Last game reds had 12 top tier and we had 6.

Still seeing massive wipeout games ie. 13-2, 12-3,11-4 far too often.

Too many non standard battle maps.

And the repair wheel still doesn't work! 

 

 

This is why the +1/-1 experiment is a distraction rather than a fix to MM!  If the tanks have already been selected to play in the battle (as per your example), how hard is it to fix the balance across green and red at top tier?   Fixing this has nothing to do with queue times.

 

When we have balanced the same numbers of top tier tanks, maybe we could balance them by tank types (8 heavies and 4 TD’s selected for a battle.  Reds get 5 heavies and 1 TD, and Greens 3 & 3.  (Happens all too often in higher tiers).

 

PS:  Happy to write a quick algorithm to do this - not that hard!

Please make +1/-1 permanent.  Had a few friends come back to the game just for the week because it made the game fun.  Most people play for fun, not be mostly tier 8's against tier 10's.  There are a lot of new players still coming into the game and imagine how they feel in tier 3?  They feel hopeless against fives and driven away.  A game should be fair and players should be playing similar tier tanks.

Bring +1/-1 back, +2/-2 sucks. Contrary to the naysayers, I think it puts the absolution and v/iv in check since they won’t be able to bulldoze through tier 4 and 3 respectively. PMM has been taken away on PC, and those tanks received buffs to compensate, also there way a buyback offer from PC when they did this perhaps next trade in event offer better compensation (hint gold) for PMM tanks and/or buffs to help balance out for +1/-1 integration.

The OnePlus 1 - matchmaking was the best thing that's ever happened to this game since I've been playing it. It makes the value of our tanks that we are near purchase much more valuable. Please consider bringing this back as a permanent solution to matchmakin I would rather wait an additional Thirty Seconds to have a good match then we dropped into a match where I'm two tiers below my appointments. Thank you for considering.

First post after 2 years playing the game and although enjoy +2 -2 in some games grinding stock tanks when facing top tier 9 and 10's in a T T  tier 8 medium is not fun.

Could a compromise be that the match mating changes on alternate weeks +1-1 one week +2-2 the next?.

 

Best of both worlds then.

Also noticed not some many prem rounds being spammed last week.

 

See you out there    :izmena:

Bring back -1+1. That will put the end on huge ammount of players who only enjoy playing t10 against t8.
It was beautiful to play t8 last weekend.
Battles were longer and the sindrom 15-1 was almost gone. It was really pleasure to play. Thanks

+1/-1 was the best thing you’ve done for a while. Some people who stopped the game could be playing back, should be new permanent MM.

I found it was much better for the PMM and all premium tanks that I ran over the testing.  I was even able to have fun in the type 59 again.  Without spamming prem shells.

This is the literal best thing to be added to this game, ever, the only people against it wanna just stomp lower tiers. I always get very annoyed going into games and being unable to do damage without spamming gold rounds because my tank has a weak gun, so please for the love of all that is fun make this a thing it fixes the biggest problem with the game
