"Division Issue" or "MM Fail"?

So... because three tier III (probably new players) division up the rest of the team gets to try to carry them?

FTR, I'm not blaming these three division guys at all. They tried but.. they were slightly out gunned. Crap like this makes me less and less willing to even bother trying anymore.

Oh, right, we're still in beta. Forgot that.

Nothing out of the ordinary there. Kiwachi BBs will see tier 6 battles easy. 

 

And that makes it right? Seriously? 

 

"Working as intended"?

Or perhaps you missed the fact that they got the only CV, a tier VI at that. Kinda makes our Kawaii-chis a bit impotent.

MM is fine-tuned based on player feedback, this thread included. However, it does still take time to implement.

 

One can only hope. So, do you have any comments on the match up? As you can tell from my thread title I noticed you place a lot of weight on the "division issue".

Sure. MM dragged up the Kawachis based on their +3 MM spread. Since there were two of them in the match and MM limits the number of battleships per side, there's an issue here. This is different from the previous one I commented on, where the MM issue was due to a division consisting of players moving outside their tier spread

 

I've commented before that MM has its screwy moments - for example, in RG_Kid's thread a while back. However, I will also point out whenever someone blames the MM for a poor decision choice, because that reflects a poor understanding of how MM works.

I still don't understand why WG thinks it's fair to put crappy tier3 BB against tier6 opponents. Everyone can outrun and outrange them.

Heck, I don't understand why all BB have +3 MM in the first place, as if +2 MM in WoT isn't bad enough.

LOL, I don't understand that too

Neither do I - Kawachi/South Carolina ought to be restricted to tier III and below matches, in my opinion. Maybe the occasional tier IV match, but seeing tier V is suicidal for it.

Not to mention a tier VI against air attack and no air support or AA of their own... 

 

This match dumbfounded me. It was practically pointless. Some team members commented on the uselessness of the Kawachis. It didn't register at the moment but yes, not due to any fault of their own, they were entirely useless. I was a bit too busy to notice.
