Playing some tier 3's with a newbie this weekend and we kept being the only tier 3's in tier 5 matches!! What happened to -1/+1 for tier 3?? This was also very discouraging for the new guy because we kept being 1 or 2 shotted at the beginning of the game!

Were you playing the Blitzen by any chance? Some tier III's have "special" +2/-1 matchmaking.

Yes, I was in the Blitzen. So that's it?! Still not fair for that to have +2 matchmaking...the Blitzen can't hold up against tier 5's, no chance.

Yup. According to WG it has "op guns" and as such has to see tier V. :facepalm:

That's a joke. They actually changed the gun on the Blitzen, a total nerf!

Ridiculous!!!!

They didn't change anything about the Blitzen. They simply didn't give it +1 MM like all the other tier 3s.

They did change the gun. They gun used to shoot like a flake gun...now it shoots in short bursts and damage has been reduced.

No, they did not. Gun is exactly as it used to be.

Well I am not here to argue the shmantics of the gun.....it should have -1/+1 MM like every other tier 3.

Premium rounds on the Blitzen will decimate a Fury if you can flank it. They can be dangerous and underestimated tanks. But stick it up against a heavily armoured tier 5 and it can be very frustrating. It's always been that way though. The number of 3s that see 5s is very small these days though, just use a Father Frost or one of the other giveaways.

Try "decimating" a KV-1 or any of the Italian tanks you may meet at tier IV & V. It's stupid Blitzen gets the crap +2 matchmaking. There is no reason to play it now and in tier V matches you're cannon fodder. Why single out a tank like that is beyond me when actually op tanks like the T-rex are still roaming free.

Sorry for having to ask, but which tank are you calling the T-Rex?

If the Luchs doesn't see +2, no tank should.

There's a couple of other tanks between tiers 2-4 that don't get the +1 MM : 

Blitzen / MTLS, M2 Light, AMX 40, Ke-Ho, UK Valantine.

Reason given was they have either OP guns or armour for their tiers.

It's a real comfort when I'm facing of against an ABSO in my Valantine that I'm in such an OP tank...

And yet the Matilda gets +1/-1. Even though the Defiance literally is a Matilda that sees tier VI the TT one at tier IV is just too weak to do it. :facepalm:
