    Match Maker is just plain mean to some of us... me especially!

    So do not feel like a lone wolf!

    I might be the only guy who flies against Jets EVERY TIME I fly a Bear Cat which has kept me from getting any upgrades for my Bear Cats.
    Many pilots of the time were the opinion that a fighter pilot in a closed cockpit was an impossible thing, because you should smell the enemy. You could smell them because of the oil they were burning.

    Yeah I loved my tempest mk 5 when it was getting matched with P47s, P51s, Spit mk 9s, 109 G10 and K4s, ect

    but suddenly always seems to be against F80s and Migs.

    and that damn tempest has to high a repair bill to be fucking with that shit.

    The New MM places you in matches based on 2 things, your single highest battle rating of a plane...plus your player proficiency (good players get placed in against higher planes)...

    So for example if you want to fly biplanes against biplanes...all reserve planes are battle rank 1.0

    You will have to ONLY load Battle rank 1.0 planes in your lineup to go against only other biplanes...place other crews on holiday...crew slots 1,2 and 3 must have plane in them others do not require one.

    some other biplanes battle rank can go to 1.3 and 1.7 , sometimes just placing ONE of those planes in your lineup casues you to face the full blunt of rank 1 planes and sometimes rank 2's....depending on available matches...and sometimes you can get away with one or 2 planes with a battle rank of 1.3 or 1.7 IF THE REST OF YOUR LINEUP IS BR 1.0 (reserves,bi-planes)

    it is best to choose your lineup's more precisely with a single highest battle rating as your limit ( MM does no account much plane ranks anymore)

    so if you fly the best rank 1 planes you will likely face some rank 2 planes and maybe a rank 3 or so occasionally... better to have a lineup of high BR rank 1's and low BR rank 2 two and so on.

    This MM makes it easier for folks to fly NEW planes as they move up and unlock them instead of having to wait to unlock and buy a whole a lineup of the next rank...

    Hope that HELPS...It is ALL about the Battle RANK now, not soo much the plane ERA rank/group

    That is very true of arcade, but in realistic where their is a smaller pool of players. It tends to rely on player proficiency more so than BR of planes to match up with. This is due I believe a lot more due to the lack of players in queue though for it to sort thru.

    This is the official post from Gaijin about Match Making: http://forum.warthunder.com/index.ph...making-in-137/

    From the forum post:
    "What does the plane’s rank affect? It guarantees that in random battles a player will not meet aircraft that is more than 1 rank different than the chosen plane in SB and RB modes or the highest-ranked plane in Arcade mode line-up. Thus you can meet planes that are the same rank as you and seldom - planes that are one rank higher or lower. You will never meet a jet while flying rank 2 or 3 planes. Here is a simple illustration showing how the ranks system works."

    Well, I have flown against jets while flying rank 3 planes and rank 4 planes while flying rank 2 therefore maybe it's my Battle efficiency however here is what it says about that:
    "Player’s Battle efficiency - this characteristic does not affect match-making greatly. It is just a small adjustment to the battle rating of the plane. The Player’s battle efficiency is calculated automatically depending on a pilot’s recent battle results."

    I have proven that recent battle results can have an impact on the next game but for me I have to have a lot of really bad games in a row to draw a low tier game. I proved this when I was trying to finish the achievement where we had to kill 4 Japanese planes in RB with an American plane. Every time I loaded a game while flying an American plane and did not get a Japanese match I just quit out. I noticed after about 4 or 5 times of just leaving a game I started to get in games with much lower ranked planes even to the point where I was the only high rank plane flying a level above all others.

    To be honest I have just gotten use to flying against 1 to 2 level planes above me and it's not that big of a deal anymore. I actually get shocked when I fly a plane and all the opponents are of the same level and it happens about 20% of the time.

    For me Match Maker works really well some days and is just out of whack other days.
    Many pilots of the time were the opinion that a fighter pilot in a closed cockpit was an impossible thing, because you should smell the enemy. You could smell them because of the oil they were burning.

    Ya the system still needs some work, battle rank is more important that teir, pay attention to your BT and you will be matched accordinly
