This is crazy. +-1 is obviously better for the game. The only logical argument against.it that i have ever heard was the player base,which we now have crossplay. It went off without a hitch this weekend proving it can be done.+-1 increases competition by simply making every tank a threat to every tank by in which increases excitement. These are the two components  that make any game worthwhile.It is why we play. Theres a reason chess is still played today.(Every piece is relevant).

 

I wouldn't mind if +1/-1 was introduced permanently (and it would be the popular thing to do) but I do genuinely find +2/-2 more exciting. As I've said, more than a few times, just fixing mm would solve more issues that spoil the fun in wot for me than the +1/-1 sticking plaster.

Not gonna vote, the choices don’t represent some of the options I’d vote for, so I’d end up having to vote for something I don’t want just to give an answer. But mostly, I don’t want to validate the weird conspiracy theory stuff he threw in there. And this is not a petition. 

 

I’d rather keep +2,-2 than switch completely to +1,-1. Because of variety and challenge as Fusion explained well. Heavies are the only class that particularly struggle to contribute when down two tiers, so I’d agree if Heavies got special matchmaking to only be top or middle tier. Every other class stays +2,-2. 
 

Platoons limited to 3. 

 

Silver only for premium, but give them less alpha like they just reworked them on PC.

 

Matchmaker. It needs some work, but I think it’s better at the moment than it was last year. Still see weird things, like having the same clan platooned on the red team and the green team. I’d like to see arty limited to 2. Three is too much when they decide to focus you.
 

Keep crossplay as is, not sure I’ve noticed lag between consoles.

 

Let WG do their thing with big partnerships and unique events. But have a set annual schedule of certain events; Tank Bowl, Halloween, Lunar and Togs need to happen every year.

 

Powercreep. Update older tanks AND consider nerfing new arrivals until they settle in, when they can be buffed if their performance is bad after a month.

Implement MM+/-1, add option for MM+/-2 for people who like vArIeTy. That was easy.

I think what scares me the most are the number of ppl who believe there are boosts and nerfs going on with PS4 and MM. 

 

It scares me even more to think that some of these people vote. And have jobs.

The capacity for believing something stupid has long since lost its shock value.  The tendency for people who know better still trying to reason with these imbeciles is what gives me pause after all of these years.

 

There are two kinds of people you can't reason with.  People who know they are right, and people too stupid to ever see that they are wrong.  

 

The fact that OP proudly states things that are obviously untrue to the casual observer indicates that this is one of the kind of people you can't reason with.

 

 

By the way, polls are garbage.  A skilled pollster gets the answer they want based on the wording of the question.

Premuim rounds are necessary while tanks with no frontal weakspots exist. Tier has less to do with it. 

 

Tier 3 tanks can't do anything against tier 5 heavies and hardly against many mediums. They have hard times even against tier 4s. You may think it's extreme, but tier 8 can hardly do anything against tier 10 heavies and some mediums and TDs. It's a fact. Try penning an e5 with regular rounds from is3, or a Badger, or any Soviet medium.

 

Tier level has a lot to do about it. 2 tiers down put you in a game against tanks much more powerful tanks than yours, and if the player you are against is any worth, he will take the initiative and send you to the garage without much loss. Removing premium rounds will put you in an even worst situation.

 

Two tiers down you are supposed to die, but you shouldn't do it with 0 damage most games or spend your game fleeing from tier 10s and looking for 8s or 9s, hopping your tier 10 teammates are any worth to kill theirs.

My thoughts on premium rounds.

 

Obviously put in to raise revenue. But... 99.9% of us wouldn’t and still won’t pay $0.25-$0.75 per shot. So they added the silver option instead of just removing it. A quick fix brought up during beta and implemented in the first few months of the game (PC). Since we got a bastardized copy of the PC game we inherited this gold/silver premium round buying structure.

 

I personally would like to see the premium rounds go away. I see no need for a “god” round. It simply breaks the armor mechanic that WG has worked so hard on. This won’t happen for two main reasons. First, too many people accidentally forget to switch it. WG probably sees good revenue from this, hence why there is a “no refund” policy written in exactly this occurrence. Second, too many of the “good/great” player rely on these rounds for their stats. My opinion on this is they would just have to work a touch harder. They’ll still be “good/great” players since all of us would be in the same boat.

 

There should be no magical rounds that allows bypassing the armor mechanic. Since this is a video game I can see putting this back to real money. This is a worse case for me, but hey I barely use them now lol.

 

Thoughts?

 

Can NOT agree more! Thumbs up!

You can die as fast top tier as two tiers lower. I finished for today with 3 kills and 2.8k damage with Stone Cold in a tier 10 game. So, not impossible. I have many games bottom 2 tiers with highest damage in my team. Just get gud. :D

 

And about gold spam - I hate it and I need it - just imagine tier 10 heavies against mediums...Maus will be a king, E100 will go through the lines, obj705a will be immortal.

Congrats on proving my point. Remember when you “HAVE TO POINT OUT EXCEPTIONS, YOU HAVE PROVEN THE RULE”. And yes, I have also had good games once in a while being low tier. Even a blind and deaf squirrel finds a nut once in a while.


Going head to head with higher tiers is inevitable. Usually you end up head to head with multiple opponents during every game.

Why would you assume this is an exception? Many of us do well when bottom tier ALL THE TIME. It's just a matter of properly adjusting to the battle conditions. You need to consider the tank you're driving, the map you're on, enemy line-up, etc. It's a skill that can be acquired over time. Of course, it's much easier to cry -2 matchmaking isn't fair.

To end the debate on +2/-2 or +1/-1:

 

Who here would like to 1vs1 anyone (me included)?

Player can choose any tank same class.

Best of 3

 

1st round:

Me - Tier 6

You - Tier 4

 

2nd Round:

Me - Tier 8

You - Tier 6

 

3rd Round:

 

Me - T10

You - T8

 

Try this and let me know who wins every round.

 

Oh and go ahead and try platoons this way.

No you don’t. A common lie from padders. No ones crying, it is what it is.

 

The crying starts when +1/-1 is permanent. And those tears will be purple.

 

I tell you what, take me on in a T8 vs me in a T10 and see what happens.
