How does MM work with regard to ship numbers?

 

I have never seen more than 2 CVs in a team.

I have never seen less than 2 BBs.

I have never seen less than 2 CA or CL.

I have never seen less than 1 DD.

 

Summary: 

-1 < CV < 3; BB > 1; (CA or CL) > 1; DD > 0.

 

Is this correct? Are there other constraints on numbers? Or is the whole issue more complex?

Thank you for helping this noob.

;D

Hard cap for CV is 2, meaning there will be at most 2 CV on each side.

The number for other classes isn't quite as restricted though, there will be matches without certain classes, I've seen ones with no DD or no BB at all. No CV matches sometime happen too, although I've never seen matches without CL/CA because they are quite popular.

MM doesn't work. This game is actually worse than WoT in terms of MM.

Thank you very much. Appreciate you sharing your experience.

I wonder, considering the way the game is going, if we will see matches with 2 CVs and the rest all CL/CA. Time will tell.

What is this thing you call match making? 

I keed you are fiarly spot on as far as class layouts go, the ships themselves have more complicated MM that i can not be buggered fact checking before posting lol

Maximum for CV in battle is 2 on each side and you are not allowed to play 2 CVs in the division as well. I think 2 CVs is more than enough at the moment.

The rest is dependable, sometime I do get weird MM after midnight or during non peak hours.

Expect MM to have many issues parallel with WoT when it comes to how often you get top tier v bottom. It's one of the remaining failures of WoT. My Panther II, for example, had 1 battle in 7 as top tier (14%), 2 as middle tier (27%), and a stunning 4 (58%) as bottom tier i.e. tier 10 games. At least it did until I decided "[redacted] this for a joke" and stopped playing it. Shortly after, I quit WoT entirely.

 

Also BBs get up to 3 tiers higher, which is stupidly awful as IJN CVs that much higher can smash you in one go. It's as bad as the stupid 'scout' MM they forced on people playing their first tier 4 medium like a Pz38NA in WoT that took genuine newbies in a tier 4 and made them face tier 8s; and that's when there was no gold ammo for CR, too. 

 

Then again, tier 6 heavies fought tier 10s. More stupidity.

 

Only took them 2.5 YEARS to fix some of it, lol.

 

In the hope of avoiding some of this, or at least pointing to lessons that might have been learned, I wrote quite a comprehensive thread on MM.

 

WG appreciated it so much it was deleted when everything was 'archived'.

 

Says it all, really.

 

LOL

War Gaming match making is a complete pile of ****. I have never seen a worse match making before. IJN CV must be nerfed in term of the amount of squadron they have, they should also receive a huge EXP deduction for every ship they killed. IJN ships are always cheaper than US ships and I have no idea whatsoever why on earth they earn about 4 times more exp than US CVs performing at their best and get 2000 exp at most.

IKR US CV get sux rewards meanwhile IJN do nothing get high rewards too.

WG matchmaking is state of the art.

It simply beyond our knowledge to understand how it actually works. 

I believe it's an alien technology.

Even with Aoba, that still does not make any sense (facing a tier IX)

I quite enjoy seeing how the higher level ships operate in game. I just played 150 games of the New York and I am only a noob. Half the time I am teamed with/against superior ships. I watch till the game ends after my early death and it often gives me an idea for a better strategy next time. And I have replays enabled and watch them - which is a really great feature by the way. And I do watch a number of top tier ships handled by very bad captains. And lots of lower tiered ships captained by geniuses. It's all pretty good. I even occasionally play a high scoring game and survive. That's pretty kewl for a late arriving noob.

It's a lot better than a game like Titanfall which I really wanted to love. But all the top players form a clan and so are always on the same team. And they always slaughter their opposition with better weapons and upgrades. And there is no way to work out how they do it. And no way to grind up to their level just constantly being killed. If you don't play 20 hours a day from Day One, you have no chance - a clear marketting choice that I feel very tense about.

The game is quite friendly to late starters. And people help on this forum to bring me up to speed.

Thank you.

This is why MM needed to be overhauled.

How much fun is a T6 carrier vs a T4 average fleet with no air support...

 

InB4 "what you should have done is got your entire team to play with flawless coordination then the CV wouldn't have mattered" comments.

 

:P

 

Mind you, seems you had some pretty 'special' DD players.
