So tomorrow is the big day for the introduction of the test of +1/-1 MM.

However, I have two personal issues with MM, that I wonder if this "test" will actually go some way towards addressing my own gripes with the current MM.

Firstly, the being bottom tier game after game after game. I know with the spread that +1/-1 MM should produce being bottom tier should not be such a demoralizing thing. But it would be nice if it were a set rule that one could not be bottom tier three games in a row.

Secondly, the lop sided teams the current MM produces, what is to stop this happening tomorrow? For example today just played a standard match on Swamp, tier VIII - IX, where the MM put all the heavy tanks on the Opposition side. So even in a +1/-1 game there was an imbalance in the team line ups. And no it wasn't a sortage of players as there were over 100 players in the game queue just before that match kicked off.

I feel that rather than actually addressing the real issues/problems with the current MM this "test" is just a lazy re-arranging of the deckchairs on the Titanic exercise by Consol.

Anyway fingers crossed we all get to enjoy this new experience.

Good luck tomorrow!

The mm fix that's has been coming soon, looks like it isn't coming.

I foresee a LOT of Light tanks in the queues the next week.

The 59-16, T21 and Lycan are going to get a work out. With some V/IV mixed in for good measure.

Seems more likely that it will cause issues not solve them.

It sounds like a good thing to me so hopefully it will be permanent and at least this game seems to be go in the right direction again

I am actually quite looking forward to tomorrow to see how the new MM pans out. I have my reservations but willing not to judge at this point. Will sort of miss taking tanks out 2 tiers higher, plus what happens to that medal you got?

 

I am worried about queue times especially in off peak times.

 

The sooner they implement Crossplay and Progression the better. I think this could really help MM if done right. Maybe this is a pre test for when it does come?

That is the one thing I wonder about. You would think they would've thought about light tanks and at least exempt them from the test. Still it's not like I've never seen a +1 match or high tier before.

It's going to take longer to get matches, or you'll see more 7v7 at low server population.

not too sure how this will go but i think it will suck to play tiers 7 and also 9. 

tier 7 will no longer see tier 5 granted 9 as well but will permantly see all the op premium tier 6 and 8's

same with tier 9 no more tier 7 but plenty more defenders, freedoms and other op premiums as well as the tens.

but the lower tiers should be a lot better, no more getting wrecked from a tank 2 tiers higher...

Ohhhh!! there will be problems. Of that I have no doubt what so ever.

because they don't see those tanks already?  

MY prediction:

I'm sure there will be people who automatically think they are going to straight destroy now because they won't see tanks two tiers higher (I"m probably one of them). I'm also sure those people will quickly realize it's not that different. Because potato gonna' potato, YOLO gonna YOLO, and op tank is op tank. We will see the same type of matches we already see, just at different frequencies and who knows maybe more competitive ones.
