Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/214763.html Basically what this article says: Storm states that on RU7 server (based in Amsterdam), there is a new MM version implemented, that fixes the issues of the 8.6 patch. Storm states that it’s looking good, it has been tested internally and no problems were found. Storm states that the new MM specifically focuses on: - top 5 vehicles of each team should be of the same tier now. If the timeout (waiting time) reaches 1 minute, this rule is reduced to top 3 tanks - the scout balance (“both sides have the same amount of scouts” rule), that was disabled previously, should also work now. Storm asked the players to give feedback in the comments. From the comments and feedback: - a player reports an issue, that low tier platoons are too often on the bottom of the team. Storm states it’s possible that the new MM on RU7 did affect this, he will check. - Storm states that it’s pointless to explain the mechanism changes, as it is so complicated even he didn’t understand when the developers explained them to him, one has to have deep knowledge of the system to understand - Storm and players noticed a lot of “mirror fights” (with both team having the same vehicles) – he’s not sure if that’s a good thing, or not - the waiting times have increased to 40s-1minute - platoon balancing not only by pieces, but also by MM weight is not planned
