My Cleveland, the only T6 (opposite also had 1 T6), in T7-T8 match.

We win, First x3 XP used, but my score 300, so grab 900xp, Hurray ! .. I guess.

Can't do anything in that match, each time try to get enemy under my shooting range, all enemy in synergy always target the weakest one, which is me.

Lucky I guess, survive the battle, but only got 4 hits and 5 airplanes kill, plus assist capture.

 

WG dudes, in that match, I can be called spectator instead a player, as I can only watching the battle progress without able to do anything.

I'm not butthurt of wasted the x3 XP, I'm butthurt because being useless to teammate.

Enemy T6's fate ? First Blood ... victim.

Pls, change MM to be 1 Tier gap.

I agree that it should be a +/- tier MM but apparently it's to compensate for when there's a low number of players on the server at any given time.

This would explain that early today when I was playing during the peak period that I had 2 matches in a row where the majority of players were 2 tiers above me.

However, in these instances I still do not play the spectator role and try to have an impact on the enemy, what little damage I can do before my ultimate demise from being an easy kill for the opposition could still result in a victory.

I vote or +/- 1 tier gaps instead of 2.

my guess is. the MM was pretty much balanced..... so he cant show it here as rage bait

 

No, I don't believe this is the case. +/-2 match making is WG worst mechanic in this game, especially so for those in lower tiers. They can barely compete against ships 2 tiers above them. It doesn't make it fun to be at the bottom and face ships that outrange you, out damage you, who are either faster and/or more maneuverable than you that can bounce your shots even showing their broadside to you. And no, spamming HE is not the answer. AW did it right by making their match making 1 tier spread. Here, WoWS follows the exact same system that WoT uses. Neither promotes fun for those stuck at the bottom; however, it only provides the top tier credit and XP farming chances. WG WoWS devs would be wise to reduce it to 1 tier spread to promote a fair and fun manner to compete; otherwise, the current system will have the same results as WoT, players giving up game because it isn't fun anymore. If you don't believe me, go read the AW forums concerning WoT's match making. It's pretty eye opening. It is one of the top reasons why people quit playing the game next to 'toxicity' and 'arty.'

You want terrible matching making? In my Hipper tier X. I'm one of 2 tier 8s, we have one tier 9 and the rest are tier 10s. Otherside, 3 tier 2s, 2 tier 9s and rest tier 10s. I spent my time escorting our Midway. Couldn't shoot at anyone until a Mogami came into range and put 7 hits into it. Then engaged tier X Russian DD and Fletcher to protect our lone tier 9 (Izumo). Put myself between the mass of torpedoes coming for him. We still lost. Everyone fought from 10 to 15km back from the islands and would not close. After 7 straight losses today I simply gave up. Jingles was right, play long enough even people who have very questionable skill can still make it to tier X. This is why I believe, fervently, that the tier spread should not be more than -/+1, period. I almost, already had the screen up to do it, quit to port when the game went live. But the Midway begged for help and no one answered him. So I stayed...got crap for credits (lost 50k) minimum XP. Yeah...playing against 2 against ships 2 tiers above me is sooo fun. Yeah right.

This match, not only did our team have no DDs. vs their 2 DDs, all the T8s were killed off 5 minutes into the match then it was just the T10s fighting while all the T8s went back to port. Minutes after this screenshot I was sent to the moon by the 3 Zao's.

ok that's a really shitty MM, poor u...:(

 

Just because atago is tier 8 doesnt mean it can stand up to the withering fire of its cousin the mogami....

But how about this? Its plausible, to have a beast game. 

Well, Flamu is bit lucky too. I dont know about your matches.

 

It also helps that he's so experienced and good at the game that he can comfortably club higher tier players, especially in a strong ship like the Cleveland. :D:D

Keep that thing aside, I learned a lot from him I started to improved a bit up a notch. I got lots of beast game for few last weeks. I wish I can give him a real medal.:medal: :D

WoW_Unbalance_MM_zps5pvmxpvr.jpg

People said CV is like spectator, can only watch when others on pain ... and with this match misMatchMaking ... it's so perfect.

I'm totally became full time spectator in this match. Try to do a bombing run with 1-1-1 setting, their BB were defended by Mister Premium Mikhail.

Let's say Mister Mikhail had 10km AA range ... if my plane try to force attack it, around 5km, my Bombers already kiss the sea, and I'm talking about both of my TB and DB try to attack simultaneously. That Mikhail don't need to focus AA attack, leave it as it is, it's gun like a laser gatling gun attacking WW2 airfighter. So then, I wait ... I wait till their BB had gap with Mister Mikhail, till the end of the match.

When our team on the other side get destroyed and the enemy pinch us and kill us all. In the end, I do nothing big. Thankfully, there's a rambo Benson that on critical condition, I did succeed hit him with DB, burn him for a short time and I get 1 kill, but truthfully, it's a steal kill rather than my own effort cause my team already shooting the Benson from all direction.

So ... here it is ... support me or defend this bs system as you wish, I'm just state the fact.

Lucky me I'm in Colorado, but these 2 babies can only hide from Island to Island, hope can sneak shot, long enough before they became attention to the big monsters. But in the end, in this match, obviously they are die quickly. The CV T7 ? done nothing significant damage. Taiho and Essex ? King of the game, everything killed by them, well, Taiho's better score. #STOPMISMATCHMAKING

Check out the Attached - 6 High Tier DDs per side.

 

was an absolute *expletive* Game - could barely do anything because constantly having to avoid Wall of Torps, every time a DD would pop up, they would disappear before I could fire.

 

This is the kind of [content removed] match making that WG need to sort out.
