I have some news that I know you all have been looking out for. In May we shared our plans for preferential matchmaking, which were later detailed in July. We went through our plan to improve pref MM vehicles and address the current issues with matchmaker. Today, I'm happy to share the latest info on the improvements to preferential matchmaking vehicles. We have a nifty widget that details all the changes in our article, but I'll also list them in the spoiler below: Preferential Matchmaking Vehicles in Update 1. Here are the steps we have already taken.
The ultimate division is the most challenging — is Gold! Only the best of the best can reach the top. These are far from the only changes in Ranked Battles, but perhaps the most interesting.
This year we completely reworked the in-game shop, so players can purchase items, equipment, and directives for Bonds. In , we want to add the ability to purchase vehicles for Bonds.
These include gift tanks and vehicles removed from the tech tree but are still owned by players. We plan to add vehicles to the Bonds shop in two rounds. The first lot in the spring of , which includes more affordable units. The second one contains more exclusive tanks and goes on sale in the second half of We also plan to gradually increase Bonds sources in the game.
The new year brings a fundamental change to Premium Account. The 8-year-old current version has some features players consider less important. For instance, Personal Reserves offer similar — and sometimes even better — bonuses, so the appeal of the Premium Account has lessened.
Our ultimate goal is to make Premium Account more profitable and, most important, convenient for everyone. Your feedback will be key for what the future holds. Don't expect the Premium Account concept to be revised quickly, however. Our plans call for a comprehensive approach to this issue, which requires a lot of time and attention. The whole scope of potential changes is still under active development, so stay tuned for more news!
This year we have released many cool customization styles, let us refresh your memory: We'll continue to work on customization and development of new unique 3D styles. Many vehicles will pleasantly surprise you! But wait, there's more: A very special treat awaits in More information on this later!

Current Situation Earlier this year we took the first step toward rebalancing Premium ammo by removing the feature of purchasing ammo and consumables for Gold. When it comes to high explosive shells, these tactics are justified.

We all know these shells are almost always guaranteed to cause damage, but this damage is usually much less than the damage dealt with standard shells. Basically, HE shells are used to fire on unarmored vehicles, for inflicting maximum damage per shot, or for targets with few hit points left.
In any game situation, the pros and cons of these shells are clear to everyone. Therefore, it's obvious that constantly using HE shells, while you have standard shells, is simply ineffective.
What Do We Want to Do? The percentage of damage reduction will depend on the amount of damage per shot — the more damage per shot, the greater the percentage of reduction. We are well aware that these changes will significantly affect some tanks.T8 Matchmaking is Broken in World of Tanks
All vehicles will be evaluated individually, on a case-by-case basis! Templates will become more flexible, depending on the current situation in the queue In addition to the classic and , new templates may appear in order to help sort the queue For a two-Tier battle, there may be and For a three-Tier battle, there may be and even Templates may also appear with a larger number of tanks in the top than in the bottom for two-Tier battles.
Kozzy, on 18 July - You know well that's not what I'm talking about. I know that you won't have an identical WR on all vehicles you play. I also had tanks with nice wn8 and low winrate.

Drumefy 1 Posted 18 July - The vehicle tier should be taken into consideration as it reflects a preordained operating range of a vehicle also known as classification. The range of each tier gradually increases with technology and tiers can overlap. If you are in a platoon, the entire platoon is placed into battles according to the platoon member in the vehicle with the highest battle tier.
This can produce unwanted results in particular for new players at the lower tiers. For example, a tier 4 scout can enter battles up to tier 7, whereas a tier 4 medium tank on its own can only join battles up to tier 6. If these platoon together, the scout will pull the other tank up into its battle tier, where the other tank will usually be hopelessly outclassed.
The same thing happens when a tank with preferential match making is platooning with a normal tank. Please take this into account when forming platoons. A special case of this is when you see a top tier tank platooned with one or two tier 1 tank. This is sometimes done on purpose. If you look above, a tier 10 heavy tank weighs points, whereas a tier 1 tank weighs only 2. Thus the platoon's team a priority has a massive point deficit, which the match-maker will balance out by either dragging more lower tier tanks into the enemy team or by dragging more high tier tanks into the platoon's team.

The tactic is frowned upon but permissible. It has become rare these days, likely because the success chances are mediocre. With two tier 1 tanks the team is missing The matchmaker does balance the number of tanks in platoons, but not the weight of the platooned tanks.
This means one team can have 2 three-man-platoons with T8 tanks, whereas the other team has 3 two-man-platoons with T6 tanks. This rule may not apply, when the server is low populated. Introduced in Patch 9. Standard Battles in battle tiers 1 to 3 take place on a limited subset of the available maps only.
