Hello again everyone who remembers me..

 

Anyway I wanted to make this post after coming back to this game at such a great and inspiring moment. (I mean the (+1/-1 Matchmaking test.) Also to say that I'm coming back to WoT after a few month break. I also wanted to state my opinion on the recent event or test.

 

My Opinion:

 

+1/-1 Is a different experience over the more well known +2/-2 normal match making. +1/-1 Added in the ability to safely play stock tanks without fear of meeting some of the more fearsome vehicles 2 tiers higher than it, this for me made helping my friend at lower tiers (Tier 4 and below, they had to restart their account) a significant amount easier than it usually is. It also helped out in higher tiered tanks, where my another friend also just unlocked a new vehicle and was play it stock. While in +2\-2 it is almost impossible to try and grind out certain unpowered vehicles that need a buff, such as a stock Comet in a full tier 9 match (this was my experience.) 

 

+1/-1 Also went to show how differently some classes play without having to see 2 tiered higher vehicles. In my case I saw some more rare vehicles (not Premium levels of rare, just more uncommon and underplayed tanks). When I dabbled around at tier 8 I saw a lot more medium tanks, and light tanks that are never played. While at mid tier I saw a rise in regular tanks over premium tanks (might have been due to easier grinding down at that tier since it was +1\-1). Then at low tier I was able to grind out the chinese tank destroyers relatively easily, of course I saw the occasional teir 5 game but it wasn't unfair to me or my team or rather the enemy team. With this test I saw great improvements to the low tier population.

 

+1\-1 gave way to some more interesting things that never really happen. One example is the severe lack of Pz. 5/4's in the matches, this was a very nice change of pace. Then at higher tiers there was less arty pop in games, which resulted in very few annoying games.

 

To sum up my opinion, +1/-1 matchmaking is really a healthy decision for the future of the game but wouldn't get rid of +2/-2 all together but rather reduce its strenuous effects on the players. Next, the event made grinding out the more unfair and difficult tiers even easier. Whcih allowed mant newer players to get a good grip of the game instead of quitting the moment they enter a tier 5 match with 4 broken tanks on either side. 

 

Anyway this is just my opinion on the test, I hope that it helps Wargaming out. If you don't agree with me or rather have some creative critism just feel free to post, I didn't make this post to upset anyone. 


 I'll always Wonder what is it like to win...

Really I just want to know how many people played during the test week vs how many will go back to other games. Already back to double down 80% of the time and T6 is again worthless because of the over saturated T8 premiums. I feel I have been given a treat only to have it pulled away as I was about to enjoy it. Welcome btw

It would suit me fine if it became permanent.

Cheers, welcome back .

But besides an opinion you always may have.

Making an example of a stock tank fighting tier 9 is crazy.

My Polish stock tier 5 basicly can only fight tier 3 to do good

So what would you suggest MM do about that ?

Sure a fully upgraded Comet / Banshee has troubles in a tier 9 game.

But sometimes ya have to realize a tank can be of great importance without being able to do much damage.

My tier 9 Patton was in a great position to prevent the reds to move up and take shots, cause then i would have a easy shot.

On the other hand, out team (higher positioned) had great shots on them, so i just holded position took shots when i had the option, had half their team worrying about me cause basicly without my at that position would have gave them options to move forward into shooting positions.

End of game i got 3rd place or so but i had not much damage myself, but i did great for the team.

Now you know like i do the tier 9 Patton can have great games, this was a game where i had to accept i had a important role but no option to shine like a mtf.

Like in every sports-team there is a player who does the dirty work so others can shine !

So your comet (upgraded) has a role in a tier 9 game, you just have to figur it out ;)

But again welcome back, don't wanna scare you off, but stock tanks are shjit 9 out of 10 so they can't be used as a example in the way you just did (imo)
