I'm excited. I honestly do not fathom why people do not want it. MM is terrible and this will make the matches more competitive. There are issue that can and will likely be adjusted if they were to make this a permanent thing, remember this is a test. A test does not mean that every single issue you all think matters does, cause it's a test. PMM, contracts, balance would obviously need adjustments. I doubt WG would leave those issues alone if this is made permanent, which is likely a reason they've not done it cause it involves an overhaul.

This is a good thing and hats off to WG for listening to the majority. I have PMM tanks but am not going to whine about it as the game will be better without 2 tiers of separation. Interestingly, I see a lot of those who advocate the challenge of two tiers also complain about losing out with their PMM tanks, bit of contradiction, and therefore a false argument. Moreover, why are people attracted to PMM tanks...so they don't have to play against two tiers higher. I like playing PMM tanks because of this, so why can't everyone else enjoy the game more with the +1 -1 opportunity? Just recalibrate the PMM tanks and its all good. truth be told, the PMM diehards just don't want to give up their advantage.

I voted yes for the simple fact that the premium 8 market is over saturated. I am, 90%, double down in my 6s. I dont have the Absolution, but know how to kill them. The V/IV could just be bumped to a 6 and with the 1 up 1 down, would be like the PC model. I own two pmm 7 tanks and have no problem being pushed into 9s since I often will use them with friends that play straight 7s. This trial may force players to use the role of their tanks and help new and veterns alike to know more about the tanks they will be facing, at the very least it will narrow what they see and possibly make them better. I dont play tens much, so I really like my 6 and 7s, but that is just me. I hate being constantly double down in my 6s, and having to play World of Conqs in my 7s. I do hope this sticks sinces we will have no real clan comp on console and all I want is to have fun.

I have heard the Pro's and Con's and both sides have valid points. But I would like to actually try it out and see how it plays.

I think its good to have the test to collect data and make an informed decision.  I also think +1/-1 could work and be good for the game if implemented well, it would require some balance changes I am guessing and there will be players unhappy about pmm tanks so these are things that should be looked at as well

Does this mean we are getting cross platform play? because the late night EU server cannot do full size matches with +/-2mm

There should be a follow up poll or email survey to ask how everyone felt about it.

 

We will do that :)

I can see this being a serious balance issue but at the same time it would also make some tanks a lot stronger

i can see the mm being a lot better for tier 8 tanks. Tiger 2s no longer getting completely annihilated at tier VIII will be good.

Lights will be good, but with the current yolo meta it doesn’t really matter.

I'm looking forward to the test.  It's definitely a mixed bag of pros and cons so it'll be good to have actual experience to judge it by, one way or the other.

 

Also, THANK YOU for letting the community be involved in the process.

That was one of my thoughts as well, that ±1 is now possible because cross platform will come and bring more players. 

But maybe i'm just too optimistic, who knows.

Will a matchmaking chart for the test be published?  Something like what I posted in my thread?  I'll copy it here.

Ist ja lustig nach 5 Jahren und tausend Anfragen/Kommentaren kommt WG auf den Trichter mal +1/ 1 zu probieren. Stets verneint und abgelehnt, vom obersten Chef verschmäht und verschrien so wie die PMM Tanks... aber jetzt wahrscheinlich öffnet der zahlreiche Spielerverlust etwas die Augen und man versucht sich mal Anfängerfreundlich zu präsentieren. 

Ich weis gar nicht wie ich das meinem Tiger 2 erklären soll dass er jetzt neue Spielfreunde findet die auf seiner Stufe sind oder gar darunter. Der kennt nur 10er...

 

Lustiger Funfakt, der bald zu erspielende Premiumpanzer M18 105 ist eine Fan/Spieler Idee welche im Jahr 2014  im Forum in den Raum geworfen wurde. Ich schliesse daraus WG braucht einfach eben einfach seine 5 Jahre Bearbeitungszeit....

Or in the game survey? Not sure how hard that is to implement, but it would ensure those playing give you feedback. I'm not sure what level response rate you achieve via email and that correlating to actual engagement with the item on the survey or not, but this would control for that if you put a minimum battle on it or asked it when the event ended if the person played.

End of passion play, crumbling away I'm your source of self destruction. Veins that pump with fear,sucking darkest clear leading on your death's destruction. Taste me you will see more as you need dedicated to how im killing you.

Community is more than Twitter and the Forums. Also it shouldn't matter what they think of WG as a whole but Feedback (Good or Bad, You need both to move forward) is essential in these tests. For example, i'm not keen on the idea but my thoughts may change with experience. My biggest worry is if it was permanent, how WG would balance the PMM Tanks for example.

Very excited about this test

It seem like a no brainer and that +1/-1 should have been implemented from the start.  It solves so many MM issues and will make the game more enjoyable for many players.

I know it won’t be perfect but it’s just one week so I’m up for atleast trying it out. Would need a bit of changes to some tanks but it will be cool for a week
