    No t20 love?

    And whaddya know, I was wrong: This is my first-ever 3rd MoE. What a fabulous total package this is. Definitely can rack up the spotting damage, I've gotten my VR to 485 in this, which is pretty insane for a tier 7 medium. I went into full-on try-hard mode, but I still swung back and forth between about 93.5% and 94.5% for a bunch of games, hoping I wouldn't take it so far that that one magical game wouldn't be enough, but things came through for me in the end...

    Some of the community contributors said that at Tankfest that they were told by Wargaming employees the matchmaking mechanic that increases your chance of being top tier or middle tier after being bottom tier has not worked since 9.18 was released. It looks like they are speaking the truth. I kept track of my last 600 solo pub battles (all battles since 1.0 was released) in an excel spreadsheet. I played mostly tier 8 through 10 with the occasional tier 6 and 7 battle. I included tank played, tank tier, battle tier, type of matchmaking(all 1 tier, 5/10. or 3/5/7), and other details. Most of the battles were played between 7 PM and 11 PM east coast time when the server population is highest. This is what I found... Tier 8 3/5/7 battles: 155 Top tier: 22 battles 14.19% of 3/5/7 battles Middle Tier: 34 battles 21.94% of 3/5/7 battles Bottom Tier: 99 battles 63.87% of 3/5/7 battles Tier 8 5/10 battles: 66 Top tier: 8 battles 12.12% of 5/10 battles Bottom Tier: 58 battles 87.88% of 5/10 battles All tier 8 tanks in a battle: 14 Out of the 221 battles where I played a tier 8 tank and the battle was more than 1 tier, I was top tier 30 times. That's 13.56% of my tier 8 multi tier battles are top tier. Its obvious 3/5/7 and 5/10 matchmaking doesn't work properly. I had days where I was playing tier 8 premiums to grind credits and I was getting tier 9 and 10 battles all day. Wargaming wonders why players dislike the new matchmaker? Maybe we should boycott buying tier 8 premium tanks, or all premium tanks, until the matchmaking is fixed. When playing my tier 8 tanks I rarely had to wait more than 7 to 10 seconds before I was dropped into a battle. Maybe if Matchmaker worked correctly, I'd have to wait up to 20 seconds for a battle, but I wouldn't be bottom tier all the time.

    at this point tier 7 is the new best tier for credit farming IMO (especially pref tier 7's albeit there aren't many to chose from). tier 8 premium tanks are basically dust collectors until front-line returns, and thats under the assumption they dont change the modes tier when it dose return..... whats worse is that WG officially refuses to just straight up admit their mistake. its a shame to considering that tier 8 used to be my favorite tier to play, now i rarely touch anything outside of tier 10.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    We havent done one of these in a while, and a lot has changed, so I think we can do another. Im choosing tier 9 because I feel that its currently one of the most balanced tiers in the game right now - I believe tier 10 would just end up being a shootout between Super conq/268v4/etc. But there are a lot of new tier 9s, a lot of old, rebalanced tier 9s, and not a lot of clear "best in tier" tanks. Along with this, from my searching, the last tier 9 one we did was back in 2016, with the winner being the Skoda T50. So lets see whats changed. As usual, Upvote your BEST tank by 1 point and downvote your WORST tank by 3 points. One vote per person per day. You must give a brief explanation for your choices. Please highlight your upvote in Green, and downvote in Red Ill do my best to track the elimination order. T49: 30 T54E1: 30 T30: 30 T95: 30 M46 Patton: 30 M103: 30 WT Auf Pz.

    Good way to revitalise this place. We may not have the numbers of reddit or the official forums, but at least our mean IQ is higher than 90 (probably). With that said: T49: 30 T54E1: 30 T30: 30 T95: 30 M46 Patton: 30 M103: 30 WT Auf Pz. IV: 30 Jagdtiger: 30 VK4502B: 30 Mauschen: 30 E75: 30 E50: 30 Leopard PTA: 30 RU251: 30 Object 704: 30 Object 263: 30 T-54 LW: 30 T-54: 30 Object 430: 30 Object 430 V2: 30-3=27 fuck this PoS the light tanks are probably objectively worse but I will leave those in scout haters' capable hands. Just good enough of a gun to tempt you not to fire HEAT (a mistake) and not good enough to do anything with it. Likewise, just enough armour to weigh down the tank and not enough to matter. Some Tier 8s are better. Object 705: 30 Object 257: 30 T-10: 30+1=31: good mobility, great firepower and very abusable armour, all contained in a package greater than the sum of its parts. A very fun tank to play, suited to the current meta, and leads to a (somewhat) competitive 277. (T-)10/10 would grind again. ST-I: 30 Centurion 7/1: 27 Tortoise: 30 Conqueror: 30 Conway: 30 Foch: 30 AMX M4 51: 30 AMX 50 120: 30 B-C 25t AP: 30 AMX 13 90: 30 AMX 30: 30 Skoda T50: 30 Type 61: 30 Type 4 Heavy: 31 WZ-111G FT: 30 WZ-132A: 30 WZ-120: 30 WZ-111 1-4: 30 50TP: 30 STRV 103-0: 30 Emil II: 30 Standard B: 30

    I managed to one-shot kill an enemy T49 in my T49 by knocking out all his crew. This is the first time i have ever seen that happen. I smacked him for 940 and thought he was shot beforehand, but apparently not.

    I may be an ass, but I always enjoyed loading up a CGC, TKing any other arty on the team, then getting TK'd by the inevitable angry pub on my team, and stating "Mission Accomplished". I probably wouldn't do it in ranked just because I wanted to play as little ranked as possible. But doing it after you hit Rank 15 is solid thinking so +1 to Exo. Pro tip: Load up a FV4005 and shoot the ground under an arty with HE. Splash counts differently so you can actually TK two arty without turning blue.
