I am getting pissed off about the horrible matchmaking. It's as bad as WOT. Either you get roffle stomped or vice versa. I played right after 2.0 came out and it wasn't this bad. Last week or two, I get one day a week where the teams are competitive with each other. The rest of the time it seems it's constantly crap teams. I love the game, but getting really pissed at matchmaking. Sorry, but had to rant

Whoever said it was going to be easy and fun:B

Did someone promise you something and then,....what you receive is different?

This game prepares you for life, :ohmy:at times it sucks,....:angry:but in-between those bad times are s few good times that you, just might remember. :popcorn:

Did you really think that a free game is going to cater to all your wants and needs? :facepalm:

Like what was said earlier..... Suck it in ....release and repeat !! ".:great:

It just might be the way you are playing the map or your plane. 

WHen I look back and review my blowouts I see where I made mistakes and contributed to the blow out

I agree. Last night I was playing, you and chaingun flighted tier 10,  l  was in 9 on your team. Red had flighted 9's and a 10 bomber. Mismatch. Gotta be disheartening to see that match at start.

 


 
So say we all.

Yes - finally someone on this forum is talking about it. We really need to discuss the bad matchmaking.
Doesn't someone have a screen-shot of a really unfair team composition that can prove it ?
I'm surprised that no one has ever noticed this before !!!!
We must finally talk about this grievance and must no longer accept it silently.
Silence is not a solution ! :izmena:


I have no idea about this game and just shoot down as many red and white planes as possible.

Yes, it sux. No, they ain't gonna fix it.  I think it is the main way they keep players close to their average in win rate, plane kills, bomb kills, etc.

Addition: I find it extremely unfair when I have to play against 12"Hawk. I always lose and that should be stopped by the MM ...

I'm not sure what your point is.  You've got 1k games played and are sitting at 52%.  Where is your gripe?  Winning is what matters.  You're winning more, than not.  So, fix the problem with the "not" winning and everything will be fine.

Have you been living under a rock since 2.0 came out? :amazed:

There has probably been over 50 Topic posted about " mismatched battles" and in those post probably another 20 posts from players about the mismatches,

Hell, i probably posted at least 10 of them on that topic.

They turned the light off on the subject of Battle Mismatches, they don't see it as any major problem that needs to be addressed. :sceptic:

It is probably the single most griped about component of the game.  So why don't they fix it?

 

If you get cheesed off by yet another battle with potato bots/team mates maybe/probably you will want to create a carry plane.  So you purchase gold or boosters to improve it.

 

Maybe that Premium plane can do it for you, so you buy it.

 

Maybe if you were Spec in that plane it would be good enough to blow everyone away.  So you buy some gold to convert that plane XP to free XP.

 

Maybe if your pilot had more skill points you could dominate so, again, you buy some free XP to pour into him.

 

It goes on and on.  Equipment, skills, gold, special ammo,and consumables,Premium Time, etc.  Follow the money.

Over 50 by some person with Polio who uses multiple accounts.

LOL. 

 

And just like magic, blowouts won't happen?  Because, why?

 

WG has no incentive to fix the matchmaking, or to prevent blowout battles.  They make more money when battles are as short as possible.  Why?  More gold consumables used on a per-hour basis.  Less progress on getting free stuff like tokens or the Pogo - harder to get epic medals when the battle lasts 4 - 5 minutes.  Less materials for equipment improvements, less silver earned (so better sales of premium planes and time).  They REALLY have zero incentive to cut down on the humans per battle nor increase the queue time.  So single-tier battles will just never happen.  Might as well wish for a return to 1.x gameplay and physics.  Or unicorns.  Wish for unicorns.

He's just trolling.  It was sarcasm.

Probably because it's working as intended.

 

It really is that simple.  Occam's Razor is probably at work.
