This is why almost nobody plays WoWP. Wargaming at all cost does not want to implement a skill based MM in their games. I guess it's a patent issue, but they just don't admit it.
Wrong...So wrong and way out in left field it doesn't even qualify for a foul ball. .
Wargaming did try to institute a " skill based " Match Maker in 2 forms for patch 1.5-1.6.
There was the " new player protection " and " Karma system "
Both systems failed miserably.
The Match Maker queue times were longer than 3 minutes and matches would end up being 1 versus 1 to 3 versus 3.
The algorithm was designed to " match " players but after 3 minutes it would drop whoever was in queue into a match.
The result was player alpha 12K games versus player beta's 100 games in a 1 versus 1 match up.
This gave the experienced pilots the ability to farm THUNDER medals in fighters or pub rush the new player for a 2 second match.
This caused many players to quit playing due to HOW LONG THE QUEUE TIMES and matches up would result.
The " fixes " took way to long as in a time frame of 6 months ( exaggerated )
The resulting fixes are of course the current game...WELCOME TO BOT WORLD.
The " Karma System " was suppose to eliminate the more than 3 losses in a row.
It would track your " winning or losses " and try to place you into an easier match up.
Did WG rescind the " player protection " ? it was broken anyway and did not work so why take out the coding.
Did WG rescind the " Karma System " ? I do not know nor can I tell. I can just bolo a couple of matches then get an easy winning match.
So from my experience and perception the " karma system is still in effect.
However what i have seen others posting on the forums states otherwise since they lose more than 10 games in a row.
WELCOME TO WOWP AND THE END RESULT OF PATCHES !.5 thru 1.7 and how WG destroyed the population
trying to help the new player that whined on the forums about how hard this game was and is.
It is certainly not the players destroying this game.
KUDOS to WG for trying and trying to rvive the current game.
