A brand new Matchmaker will be tested on the European servers for a few days in the near future. To avoid different playing behaviour during this test, Wargaming will not share the exact date or timeframe, this allows them to get the best and most accurate results according to them.
What will it look like?
If you’re wondering how this will affect your game experience, it’s pretty simple. These introductions will reduce the number of battles you have to play against higher tiers. Same-tier battles, in particular, will become more frequent, as you can see below.
Why the changes?
At the moment, there are two main issues with the current system:
- Tanks often are bottom of the list and have to battle against adversaries of higher tiers, which is not always enjoyable. This is especially true for Tier VI and VIII vehicles.
- Players with preferential Premium vehicles play most their battles against vehicles one tier higher, in the 5-10 template and are rarely getting matched with vehicles of their tier and one-tier lower. As a result, such a situation eliminates the benefits of preferential matchmaking.
To resolve these issues, Wargaming plans on introducing dynamic templates, allowing the Matchmaker to use the following match-ups:
- Two-tier battles: 6-9, 7-8, 5-10 and 4-11
- Three-tier battles: 3-5-7, 4-5-6, 3-6-6 and 4-4-7
Keep an eye for these new templates and let us know how your experience has been with them.
