kaneaaa posted a topic in Metagame DiscussionI was just wondering this. Sometimes, for example I get the impression when they release a new premium tank they try and programme the mm so that said new premium tank appears once per game to advertise its release to players. Was just wondering if people noticed ways in which the mm was working which wg haven't been clear about.
http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/286163-so-i-made-a-macro/ Basically, anyone with pair of eyes and few working brain cells could do this at low server population. I sometimes used this "exploit" when server population was under 10-15k (late night on EU server, NA server is prob easier to rig). Problem starts when tomatoes start using this macro to alter MM and it causes problems due to widespread usage. Then WG is forced to take action, easiest one being disabling leave queue button for 5 seconds after joining (edit: or removing tank count from interface). Either way, he is an idiot for publishing it on official forum. EDIT2: Post was about using client side macro that enters queue , checks amount of players waiting in each tier , takes screenshot and then does the math about favorable match probability ( being top tier!) . It takes screenshot of tank counts throughout tiers and then picks best moment to join match. According to authors post, it had 90%+ success in doing so. Again, nothing players didnt do manually before, but making such mod available for mass use is dangerous. Should have taken screen of an opening post....
