Anyone Else Having National Flavor MM?

Hey anyone else having lots of match making where all of one nation or most of it is on one team and all or most of the other nation is on the other team?

 

Attached a screenshot of what I'm talking about.

I've really noticed this with cv's, bb's, and crusiers. I have not noticed this with dd's, but I don't play dd much and just treat them all the same.  Stealth Ninjas of death to the unwary.

This can be a real game decider before the match starts, (like 3 Pepsis on 1 team and 3 Myokos or ARP Crusiers on the other). Had that happen today too.

 

I also noticed this happening only since 5.8 has come out.

Probably because a major feature of 5.8 was changes to MM. Read the patch notes.

 

Yes, I did read the patch notes.  They never said anything about undoing a MM fix that they had fixed in an earlier patch.  Which I patch I can't remember, but this was a problem before. 

WG!

PLACING 5 AOBA AGAINST 5 CLEVELAND IS NOT FUNNY AT ALL!

Or having 2 Hoshos vs 2 Langleys

or 3 USN BBs vs 4 IJN BBs

That gets a little mismatched right there.

You'd see it more on DD matchups where one side has a lot of torpedo boats and the other side has a lot of gunboats.

 

It is still subject to luck. Whenever I played DDs after the patch, I recorded 5 games where it is really skewed but 7 games where it is with only -1/0/+1 variation in nationality(only for DDs).

What, shouldn't you be happy that the ship classes are mirrored?

 

There's nothing wrong with Aobas.

 

Best RoF for 203mm guns, stronk bow armor.

Then again, MM could've distributed some Myokos and Pepsis around...

 

Perhaps they're grouped via ship-class (ie Myoko-class) before being distributed?

 

Like:

 

In a list of T7 cruisers...

Available:

 

Player 1: Myoko

Player 2: Myoko

Player 3: Arp Myoko

Player 4: Arp Ashigara

Player 5: Pensacola

Player 6: Schors

 

Because they're organized in that order, it'll be...

 

Team 1: T7 cruisers: Myoko, Myoko, Arp Myoko

Team 2: T7 cruisers: Arp Ashigara, Pensacola, Schors

 

Kind of like a conga line that gets split in half.

 

Just a hunch.

Seen quite a few (T4-5) destroyer line ups of Japanese vs US/Russian lately.

Yeah,

That's a game maker with that line up.  6 dds and all 3 USN DD on 1 side and all 3 IJN DD on the other?

That's going to make capping really hard for 1 team.  Guess which one.

Yes had a few MM like that few days ago. Although our fubukis were outplaying them, but that does not justify this MM policy. Nations usually have their own flavor and to make team balanced, they must be mixed up (well may be only exception is when that is 1v1 etc).
