"This is beta"™ means not having enough players to form proper teams with ±1 (2?) tier spread. Just have to deal with it for now.

If you can't deal with it go play co-op battles.

when i play , there is enough players , you can see them in the list , but i think you right they are just throwing anyone in games , hopefully they will fix it before release.

It is a feature of the match maker. There may have not been enough players on Tier 7-8 so the MM put you there. 

 

I am pretty sure WoWS Match maker is modeled after WoT's match maker.

That is a easy out many time i see well enough player in the same tier but yet we get a vast range. its not Beta, its idiotic

You are not the only one playing. There are other people playing on other tier spreads. If the Match maker cannot find balanced a match for those in a certain amount then it will randomly put anything into the match to make it complete regardless of tier spread and or balance.  

There may very well be enough in your tier spread tier 3-5 or tier 4-6 but not enough higher like 6-8 or 7-9

Sometimes if some higher tier have no equal on their tier in queue then they try to check in lower tier, sometimes the one that messing the mm is the big gap divisions as far as i remembering...

Mix tier of ships doesn't worry me.

On the other hand I have now had battles where MM as pitted 4v4, 3v3, 2v2 and twice 1v1. Playing a aircraft carrier (tier 4) vs tier 4 destroyer, was no fun at all.

I dont think you'll stay calm when you find out that there is only one tier 6 CV on your team and two tier 8 CV on the other side...

that would be totally disaster

Try being in the Tier IV carrier vs two tier VII see how much fun that is game after game, when one of their fighter groups wipes out every single plane you have and there is nothing you can do about it. but you can bet the people going its beta are the one's in the high tier.

oh my way to the essex i currently have i have played through so many unbalanced MM games that i lost count the last few I can still remember is playing as a lexington vs 2 Essex. But since this is beta and they expanded the tier function for the MM so there are more games played, i suggest to just keep to yourself and endure.

Are we supposed to have 1 or 2 tier spread? Cos from the markings on the table it looks like its supposed to be a 1 tier spread by default but for sake of beta its now at a 3+.

Try being in a match with 5 heavys on your side, 3 on the other with 2 cv's, and more ships (DD 4, Cru 3) than mine. Happened in my Nagato.

MM needs to be fixed for matches where your side or other our not only sre out numbered, but have a better ship loadout

MM is in open state at the moment to allow for more games to occur. When WG have finished collecting the data they need, they will switch MM to normal.

 

 

This is yet another thread that needs to die off as people are too lazy to read.

Its still CBT. ( Closed Beta Test ) What do you expect? This is not World of Tanks you know.

But i wonder why there's 800 peeps in Main Menu when there's 25 peeps in waiting room. If not they commentary or wasting their time. But i see their POInt.

the idea of closed beta is to test the game , bit hard to do when you get 1 shot 2 min into a game .
