MM matches the total ship weights of both teams, as low tier ships are still able to take down higher tier ones though requiring better skill

True, although I do feel that bad MM in a Kawachi is like stubbing your Toe and Pinching your hand at a door. The Kawachi can be such a pain to grind at times due to the gun range.

I first thought that the MM spread would be 2 tiers above or lower... not until I find myself fighting enemies 3 tiers higher from me...

 

pretty much the same with WoT before they changed the MM

 

 

seeing the game is still in Beta and lots of things were yet to be fixed or applied

not when you're on cv and the enemy cv is 3 tier above you.

 

sample of WG "Ballance" my team has 4 tier 5 while the enemy team lowest tier is tier 6. bonus, we got no DD on our team.

 

"working as intended" seem legit to me.

That matchmaking is actually possible, look here:

 

http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/18094-matchmaker/

 

Or if you are too lazy to create an EU account, then here:

 

 

Greetings Captains,

 

there are a lot of questions about the Matchmaker (MM) and many of the new captains are surprised when they get into high tier battle with their low tier ship. The battle's tier is characteristic that shows the minimal and maximal tier of the enemy ships if they are not in division. The MM is different for each class, but it's possible to set it for each individual ship and there are some with special MM.

For now it's random in which battle you will get (as top tier or as lowest tier) it simply depends which battle tier will be filled first. There are plans to limit the amount of battles where you can end up as the lowest tier and after few such battles in a row the MM will let you wait for battle where you will be top tier.

Exceptions:

 

Iwaki Alpha(IV): 4-5

Yubari (IV): 4-5

Atlanta (VII): 7-9

Arkansas Beta (IV): 4-6

Ishizuchi (IV) - 4-5

 

 

All regular Battleships have +-3 tier matchmaking, meaning your tier3 Kawachi can meet tier6 ships.

What I found strange is that battleships being the more tier-dependent class of this game actually gets the worst matchmaking spread.

As if the life of slow Battleships not hard enough already...

Ah, I really hate the MM, but. 

"Cheer myself up"

BANZAI CHARGE

Anyways, 2 tier Difference MM is too much, hell back in CBT, I was an insolent Nagato and never met the Yummah-Toh before, so I don't know how to act when there's a Yamato, lol took 2 salvos from Yummah Toh, then,

Seriously If even OBT is still like this, I don't want to imagine the Tragedies after full release.

 

Matchmaking, Surely easier to fix a game mechanic?

 

CVs: Equal Total amount of tier (Tier 6+Tier 8 vs Tier 7+Tier 7)

BBs: Tier 4 or lower should get +/-1 for the lack of AA.

its largely being in the right place at the right time but Kawachi is hopeless due to its bad range and horrific dispersion

 

You might be able to kill a random CA who derps too close to you but a Battleship will wreck you due to bigger guns will pen your armor easily, while your 30.5cm guns won't do anything (that calibre seems to have alot of trouble penning battleships)

It was that during CBT, i do not ever remember having to fight tier 10 ships in one of my tier 7 ships, or vice versa i never remember fighting tier 7 ships in my des moines. (unless it was one of the rare games with 6 or so ships in total.) 

 

Sooo idk why they changed it especially considering nearly 10 times as many people are online now compared to CBT.... 

It is almost like they are trying to make ships more frustrating to grind.
