From 15th - 22nd Oct

 

Two of the best things since sliced bread are combining!

The +1/-1 Matchmaking and the Loaded Dice events are joining forces to bring THE ultimate Combat Experience to Multiplayer!

During this event play against other vehicles that are no more than one tier above or below yours, as well as with reduced damage variability, exact Penetration, and Burn Damage values.

The stage is set. Test your skills, not your luck!

Please note that Preferential Matchmaking tanks will be adjusted to play with vehicles of the same tier or one tier lower.

Seal clubbers, rejoice! Your dream has come true! Not only will you never face tanks 2 tiers higher, you will always pen and never get penned in your Absolutions, Rampanzers, Tiger 131's, etc! Awesome!

 

Well, sounds like a good week to take a break from playing WOT. Commander mode anyone?

commander will be finished, but I'm certain another mode op or mode will be available during  another test period.

Great, can't wait.

The best two matchmaking changes tested so far together? Heck yes from me.

What about PMM Tanks?

Nothing mentioned that they will have a -1/+0 MM next week.

It's right in the Op's post and the article: :great:

Boredom mode on the way...

Definitely not a fan of any of those three changes. One is close; I do like decreased penetration variability, but none at all takes a good thing too far and ruins it.

I'll try to schedule my Autumn Games completion around this.

Thank you Max. Now that you´ve mentioned it. :( Time for a coffee break.

Great news, looking forward for the next test round.

Does this mean that accuracy remains the same?  Can't wait to create craters in the ground.
I'm just saying.....

Craters of exactly 304.74mm diameter each at that!

Yep, they said if they changed Accuracy it would be 0.00 for all tanks so left it as it is.

Thankfully, I didn't notice this dumb decision to re-test (again!) +1 / -1. Was plugging away at the Chisel, playing tiers 9 and 10 only. 

 

WG - if you're reading this, the main problem to "fix" is platoon match making. It's painfully simple. Platoons should wait for equal tier platoon to be matched, none of this 5 Deathstars vs. 5 AT15, everything else equal nonsense. Is it really that hard? Nope, not really.

 

Loaded Dice just sounds a little boring to me. Without RNG, encounters are presumably quite predictable.

This is a mistake. We're no lessons learned last time with top tier Tiger 131s and E25s? 


War is a Democracy and the enemy always gets a vote.

3 MoE's: E-25, M41 Walker Bulldog, E-50, Snakebite, E-75, T32, Tiger 131 - In order obtained

No. No lessons will be learned. Ever.
