Hi Captains,

Earlier, we announced some upcoming changes to the matchmaker which are designed to reduce the number of aircraft carriers in Tier IV-V battles. Today, we are ready to share the details of the updated matchmaker system, which is currently in testing.

With the matchmaker update, special settings will be applied for all battles of all tiers, which will limit the maximum number of ships of a certain level and class:

  • A fixed limit is set on the number of ships of a certain class:

    • With the change, the presence of aircraft carriers in battles will become more stable, but the number of battles with two aircraft carriers per team will be significantly reduced. We also plan to completely eliminate battles with three aircraft carriers, but this change requires additional testing and we will report on its results at a later date.

    • The number of destroyers in a battle will not exceed 4 - 6 for tier V-X battles. For tier X battles, the maximum number of destroyers will be four, under normal circumstances of saturation of the matchmaker queue.

    • The number of battleships in a battle will not exceed 5 - 6 for tier V-X battles. For tier X battles, the maximum number of battleships will be five, under normal circumstances of saturation of the matchmaker queue.
    • The number of cruisers in a battle is not limited.
  • A limit is set on the number of ships 2 tiers lower than the tier of battle. This will avoid cases when the player, for example, is the only tier V in a battle dominated by tier VII ships.

Each tier of battle will have specific limits to class and tier which will change depending on the waiting time in the queue: the longer the waiting time, the softer the limitations become. This is done so that the first players in the matchmaking queue don't have to wait long periods of time for the limits to be met; while at the same time maintaining the maximum level of comfort of team compositions.

As an example, see the settings below for tier V battles (battles involving tier IV-V ships) and tier X battles (battles involving tier VIII-X ships):

The detailed settings of the matchmaker for each tier of battles will be announced later and may change during testing.

Please note that the information in the Development Blog is preliminary and subject to change.

A welcome change.

However, why test on the 3 CV at T4 when it is clear that 2 CV limit is the solution.
How can new players learn and enjoy the game when they are constantly harrassed by 3 hornets.
2 is a company, 3 is a crowd.

Another reason why many players prefer to play T4 CV is due to CV economics.
CV's gets negative credit returns at T6, while BB, CA/CL, DD gets negative credit returns at T8.
Might want to take a look at CV economics as well.

 

Also, just a heads up, your texts is not visible at dark mode theme.
