I discuss the importance of flexing to prevent a flank from collapsing and the arguments against capping too early instead of pressing an advantage.
The Preferential matchmaking tanks What is a preferential matchmaking tank? For instance, the Tier 8 Russian heavy, the IS-6, has an atrocious canon, but that is the trade to get pref.
The new matchmaking system A while ago a new matchmaking system was introduced. It aimed to solve a bunch of problems, such as matchups with, for instance, 10 tier 9 and 5 tier 8. Now it did fix that.
However, this paper will not go in depth with the matchmaker itself, as that is only the stage in which the preferential matchmaking tanks compete in.
That being said, the matchmaker is one of many things that adds to the troubles that those tanks are facing. The opposition However, the MM is not the only thing that contributes to the troubles that the pref.
The opposition itself has made it harder for them to compete. This comes in many variations. For instance, the Japanese line with their very heavy armor and derp canons, or the newly introduced VK German heavy tanks. Those tanks, but also the trend with newly introduced tanks being both faster, better armored and better armed adds to the problems.
The preferential matchmaking tanks — what do they trade. I will take on two cases and examine them Super Pershing: First the Super Pershing.
The super Pershing trades in a variety of things. The gun handling on the Super Pershing, was recently buffed with penetration. However, among the tanks measured against it, it has the worst gun handling stats where it is almost 1 round a minute behind most of its competitors with the exception being the Panther II.
The gun handling is not where it lacks the most. The real trade happens with its mobility. The Super Pershing is not fast, not at all. It has an atrocious power to weight ratio, which is rivalled by heavy tanks. Which is that it can and often should be driven as a heavy tank.
It has armor which can be very tough — but mainly against tier 7 and sometimes tier 8. The matchmaking as it is right now leaves the Super Pershing in an odd spot.
Most tier 8 and most definitely tier 9 will punch holes in the Super Pershing.I, on the other hand, benefits from unique matchmaking, as it will never encounter tier 3 tanks.
