+1/-1 Matchmaking Returns

A few months ago we conducted a trial run of a new matchmaking system that proved to be popular. Our current matchmaking system matches you with vehicles up to two tiers above or below your vehicle's tier, but this test limited that spread to just one tier. Based on the success of this test and the positive feedback from you, we're pleased to announce that we'll be implementing this new +1/-1 matchmaking system with Update 2.9.

With the current matchmaking, if you're in a tier VI vehicle you could potentially see foes from tiers IV-VIII in battle. With this new system, you'll only see vehicles one tier below you, the same tier as you, or one tier above you. 

Because of this change, we've adjusted the profitability of some vehicles:

  • M4A3E8 Fury +25%
  • E 25 "#1" +12%
  • Type 62 Dragon +11%
  • Jagdtiger 8,8 and Jagdtiger 8,8 Snowstorm +20%
  • KV-5 +18%
  • T26E4 Super Pershing +25%
  • IS-6 +10%
  • Type 59 +17%
  • Shinobi +5%

Some vehicle characteristics have been adjusted as well. Full details will be included in the Update 2.9 update notes. Note that the new matchmaking system applies to all vehicles except the Valentine II and Pz.Kpfw. B2 740 (f).

If you're still itching to battle with a wider tier spread, try Training Rooms! There you'll be able to have control over the tiers, plus a variety of other options.
