    A contributor of reddit has done a 99% UCL calc on a personal data set and came up with the following: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldofTanks/comments/6dg5tf/the_918_matchmaker_saga_part_two_new_data_and/ I have no idea of whether this could be discerned from the API, but this kind of ninja nerf would be such a WG kind of thing to do. I wonder if the OP is a member here, it'd be interesting to have him present to our math guys.

    Besides the fact that his sample size is far too small (150 games for HT's and 90 games for TD's wtf is that), I think he's drawing the wrong reasoning for the conclusion of the data. He claims that all tanks should have a 20% chance of being top tier, which would make sense in a perfect system as 3/15 is 20%. However, we know that tier 10 and tier 8 are the most heavily played tiers in the game at any given time. I think you would be very hard pressed to find any given time where the proportion of tier 6 tanks was 2.33x that of tier 8 tanks, or even the proportion of tier 7 tanks 1.4x that of tier 8 tanks. According to what WG has claimed, the system attempts to make 3/5/7 games as often as it possibly can, unless it is unable to produce this scenario, in which case it will start creating 5/10 games and then just whatever it can throw together that follows the tank MM rules in order to find you a game quickly. The simple fact is that there aren't enough tier 6's or 7's playing the game for the system to make as many 3/5/7 games with tier 8 on the top as it can with tier 9 or 10 on the top. Because tier 8 is one of the most played tiers and unlike tier 10, can be bottom tier, it just makes sense statistically that tier 8 in general would have a higher probability of being the majority of the team, and with the mm's current attempt to make the majority of the tanks lower tier, tier 8 tanks tend to not be top tier. The other conclusion he draws is that HT's are being treated differently than TD's because, based on his data, it's obvious that TD's appear as the top tier more often. I think that this also has to do with uneven distributions within the MM itself rather than WG specifically punishing heavy tanks. Just as more players tend to play tier 10 and tier 8 than other tiers, more players tend to play HT's than they do TD's. The patch notes specifically state that "The matchmaker considers the number of light tanks and tank destroyers." That generally means that the number of TD's on either side should be +/- 1 of each other but tier usually isn't accounted, and that would be where most of the skewing is going on. Any TD that gets on one side is almost guaranteed to pull another TD into the match to put onto the other side. I think it's likely that TD's tend to get into the more prime 3/5/7 (Which initially would be pretty evenly distributed until the MM runs out of tier 6 and 7 tanks) games because there are fewer of them than the flood of HT's, and then once all the prime spots are taken, they still have a better chance of getting into the 5/10 MM (which would favor tier 9 and tier 8 vs tier 8 and tier 7 based on tier distribution, especially later when all the tier 7 tanks are used up) before all the rest of the HT's and just a few TD's are simply dumped into whatever the MM can come up with (Which is why in his data HT's got single tier MM more than twice as often as TD's did per game). TLDR: Tier 8 HT's get shafted more often than Tier 8 TD's not because WG did something to specifically punish tier 8 HT's, but because there are generally more of them than any other specific class/tier in the MM queue at any given time and so they tend to get thrown into whatever the MM can come up with rather than WG's "fair distribution".

    Being trolled by clan TIM

    It is all good and well to say that, but I called you out on kicking new recruits within an hour of joining when I was in TIM at least twice. One of the recruiters not being in the clan anymore probably just means (in their eyes) they have move on to a better clan. Nothing to do with both parties not being on the same page. Most of this could have been avoided if you had PM'd Manic (or made contact with him in another way) and offered to play a few games with him. Instead you just go on with the "it wasn't my fault" and blame other people. Pro tip: being the CO of a clan usually means taking ownership of what goes on in said clan.

    @dualmaster333 The 132A is like all China mediums. You lose armor, speed, acceleration, gun handling and accuracy for modest accuracy increases relative to the Russian counterpart. The 132-1 is particularly awful. The 132A is at least slightly smaller than the 54LW, and having AP standard with higher pen APCR does mean the gun is decent. I'll be unlocking the 132-1 in hope of a future buff but it's genuinely bad, like AMX30B, 121B, T95E6 bad.

    He could have driven to a point where the bush was transparent, saw where the rock's edge was and then backed up carefully while keeping the reticle on that exact spot. Then he was at least 15 meters behind the bush so it's not transparent anymore and just waited for a few moments for tanks to move forward and take positions, then he fired and got lucky with you being there. In all honesty, I think the UDES was able to hit you was due as much to knowing where to aim as to sheer luck. Probably a combination of both.

    I had to look that show up because I hadn't seen it. It's a little hard to tell from the few screenshots I found of him but it's probably a trilby based solely on how high the crown is. Trilbys have a narrow brim which is quite often turned up at the back and a high crown and are typically mass produced from cheap materials, mostly tweed; which is why they're worn by neckbeards with NFI, because they're cheap. Fedoras have a much wider brim (60mm or more) which is almost always flat, and a shallow crown and are usually made of some sort of felt. Most decent fedoras are made by genuine milliners and as such are much more expensive. Fedoras should be worn low on the head pulled down close to the eyes and trilby's should be worn pushed back as they're a lack of fashion statement rather than as shade, which is what the entire purpose of a hat actually is. As a general rule the wider your shoulders the wider the brim of your hat should be so skinny narrow shouldered guys can get away with trilby's but most men look better in panamas, fedoras, homburgs or bowlers. Akubras or stetsons are also decent choices if you are broad shouldered and have a reasonably rugged face. Pork pie hats should be avoided by most men as they're extremely hard to pull off and generally only suit tall thin men.

    Damn, would have been fun to hear. I used to appreciate the slight improvements to the gun over the t54. Then i realised that both are so much fking better than those fking retarded fking lights, that there was little point with the t55a's slightly better gun. 0.42 accuracy is more than enough. Said no kent ever. Fking lights. The good news is i'm about 3/4 way thru the 132a grind so can try to work out where to put that crew. And ping is back to usable. And rips gibbed me long SS sound. Owe him a hat.

    My T6 knowledge is a bit outdated but here's a brief rundown: God Tier: Warspite: Now with WD40. Roleplay a Yamato in T6 by penetrating everything in tier. Bonus points if you're a fan of slow muzzle velocity guns like I am. Probably my favourite gun in the game. It's also hard as nails provided you don't sail like a potato (ignore reddit, they're stupid). Your damacon strategy is going to be different though because of the fast cooldown/lesser invuln window. Duca D'Aosta: Troll torpedoes, railguns, pencil citadel. Basically it's a Budyonny that trades a gun, rangesuperior gun layout for better survivability and gun dynamics. Farragut: It's a US DD that does US DD things Long smoke, great DPM, workable torps. The only downside is the lack of defensive AA which is kind of RIP in ranked when you encounter a good carrier player. Budyonny: Good guns, punchy (but short range) torps and a citadel that's impossible to hit. Has huge range too. The AA lets it down a bit but who cares when you have this much dakka. Shinonome: "Go fuck yourself smoke meta, I have 9 torps". Also has reasonable guns (build as a gunboat and roleplay a Q ship for funtimes). It's pretty much a fubuki of old but with nerfs to put it at T6 (which tells you how wank the old fubu was). Good Tier: Cleveland: Great AA, obliterating DPM, made of wet tissues. If you're 1v1 against a competent BB at the end of the game you're probably dead. That's the only thing stopping it being top tier (I dislike ships that can't close the deal at the end of the game). Leander: The AA isn't great, it has no HE, it's squishy and it's slow. What saves it are smoke, hydro and torps. That makes it a good team support ship and gives it a tonne of bite against larger warships. Molotov: "Lets put T9 guns on a T6 ship!". "DA TOVARISCH!". Made of paper, turns like an oil tanker. But whatever, you have 180mms of Stalin bias. Anshan/Gnevny: T6 Gremy. Solid long range fighter but you're going to struggle to contest caps because of your amazing turret traverse. If you're the only DD on the team this is not going to be very pleasant. Fuso: Lots of guns. That's all you have. You're not fast, you're not maneuverable, you have no AA and you're not tanky. But you have 12 14 inch guns so you can erase people from mid-range. However, times have changed and there are a lot more tools to deal with you than there were two years ago. It's a strong ship but you're just slightly too easy to counter by Shinonomes, CVs and 155m cruisers for my liking. Arizona: Better sigma than the New Mex makes the AZ a slightly better pick for ranked IMO. You have more consistent guns in exchange for slightly worse AA. Plus I like the ballistics slightly better (slower shells). YMMV. You're too slow to be top tier. 21 knots is painful no matter what the ship. Mediocre Tier: New Mex: Could swap with the Arizona depending on how CV infested your meta is and how you like the gun characteristics. Still too slow. Hard as nails though. Fubuki: Better reload rate, torp range and torp damage than the Shino. Unfortunately you get one less turret which is bad for a line that relies on gun alpha to win DD fights.You will need to fight gun duels in Ranked (and the game in general) and the Fubu loses every time. The difference in torps is negligible (2km doesn't matter that much and 2k damage matters even less). The Shino is a better ship (plus you can put your Yugo or Shima captain on it for lols). Bayern: Hard to kill and can dance. It has an adequate secondary battery which is good because the main battery is bloody awful. Can't hit anything at long range and has weird arcs anyway making aiming difficult. Has too high a velocity at short range so you overpen all the things. A lot of my clanmates really like it. I hate it with the heat of a thousand suns. Potato Tier: Nurnburg: Used to be alright, now it's total shite, walking in a Nurnburg wonderland. Lacks the punch of the Russians, the DPM of the Americans and the team versatility of the RN. Made of paper, doesn't have 360 noscope Bruno turret. Avoid. Hatsuharu: Do you enjoy having a tiny spread of torpedoes that never hits anything? Do you like low DPM guns that do no damage? No? That's okay, no one likes the Hatsuharu. I built it as a gunboat because I got so frustrated with the shit torpedoes. Being able to gun down anything short of a Farragut at <5km was funny. But really it's bad. CVs: Ryujo has more strike power. Indy has a good AS setup. I dunno I'm bad at carriers.

    The problem with this approach is that it's focused too much on good gameplay mechanics, rather than WG profitability.

    PTA is an extremely competitive tank at tier 9, unlike the Leo 1 at tier 10, which is essentially just a PTA with more health but a shittier turret.

    KT does not yolo nor does he take but the most calculated risks! The PTA was recently buffed again! It's seen some of the most buffs on live of any tank, three cycles I believe. It got 8 depression up from 6. I've not unlocked it yet but I'm real close, and looking forward to it. Welcome back KT friend, I approve of all of this except the part where you've not accepted any of my platoon invites! And 500 assisted you chchchchai sniper!

    I was just in a game with my Leo. I got shot at three times by one arty and none of them hit me, just all near misses. Nothing else hit me the whole game. In those three near misses that pos motherfucker killed me. Arty is just as bad if not worse than it ever was, just in a different way. Maybe in heavy tanks its a little better but tanks with little to no armor its much worse. Fuck arty. If any of you here enjoy playing arty then fuck you. Just sayin'

    Actually, in proper German, Untermenschen. You think you're being cute? Much of my extended family died because of that exact word and the "casual racism" it employs. Fox advises we focus on the "actual issue." What is the actual issue? A new premium tank with good frontal armor? Sir Foch being treated unfairly by WG? WG being a business and trying to make money? You guys getting your panties in a twist because there's a new premium you can't afford to buy or don't want in a game, or someone was mean to your favorite streamer? Sorry, those aren't real issues. Fuck the Chrysler K, and fuck Sir Foch. And, most particularly, fuck "casual racists." "Hard" enough for you, Fox? I'm sorry if you guys feel I've "derailed" this oh so important topic to call attention to something actually worth addressing. The ironic thing is that this thread would have stayed on topic (to the extent there actually was one) if some of you guys hadn't spent so much of it defending the "casual racism" and telling the rest of us to get over it in terms that perpetuated it or made it worse

    My favorite fake news. http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/22/europe/manchester-arena-incident/ The blast occurred just before 10:35 p.m. local time as the concert was wrapping up, according to Manchester police. The explosion, which apparently took place in the arena's main corridor, sent panicked fans running for the exits. "We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack," British PM May said in a statement. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/22/world/europe/ariana-grande-manchester-police.html But wait! What is your brain thinking?
