I knew you could have flights with lower tiers, but that low ??

Had a battle flying my XP-58 and one of the enemy had a tier II Bulldog ...

Because his wonderfully smart wingmate with tier VIII plane decided it would be so cool to take a friend in a Buldog there.

stats were invented by Satan himself to suck the carefree fun out of gaming

Yeah, I know why it happened, but why does our wonderful matchmaker allow that ?? How can it 'balance' a tier II plane against VII/VIII's ??

I did that with a tier 1-10 flight it was incredible. My only disappointment was, that I wasn't match made into a tier 1 game!

 

Imagine an XF90 vs that Type 91,  I wouldn't  even bother too shoot at enemies

 

I'd just try and break my record for ram kills in a single battle!

The general rule is that the maximum tier difference between the battle and any aircraft in it should be “-1”. This means that a Tier VII battle can include Tier VI aircraft, but not vice-versa. The only exclusion from this rule are situations when there is a flight that has one aircraft several tiers lower than their wingman. When finding them a battle, the matchmaker will match them based on the higher tier aircraft, and simply assume the lower one’s tier to be the lowest possible for that battle. So, when entering a Tier VII battle, a “7+3” flight will be considered as “7+6” and subsequently balanced by a “7+6” or “7+7” flight. Naturally such flights decrease their team’s chance of success quite drastically.

Well I've seen that kind of flight only once in one and a half thousand battles, so it's not even close to be as common as it was in WoT, when mixed tiers were still allowed. Pilots generally seem to be of a much more mature type of player than the tankers are, and the WoWP devs should concentrate on the real, existing problems and there are a lot. Thanks.

Yes but this would be really easy to fix - just don't allow matchmaking teams with more than +-1. Only allow to hit the READY button if both planes in the team are max one tier apart. If they are more apart give a warning and don't do anyhing else.

Chalk up another tier I/X flight seen by me.  Obviously people doing this are having a laugh, but it’s an annoyance if you happen to be on their team.
