If you had plans to quickly finish missions from the premium campaign by fighting bots at low tiers in PvP mode then I have to worry you. Bots have been “turned off”.
Turned off at least when it comes to “older” players. There is also a problem with MM +3, but let’s take a look at the SS’s explanation in this matter:
That’s intended. The patchnotes weren’t very clear in this regard, but to clarify: Tier 1 and Tier 2 vehicles have two different MMs. One for new players, one for experienced ones (or, rather, anyone who is not a new player).
The problem was, new players that are supposed to play together on T1 and T2 were ending up in battles with T3, which was not intended. Right now, only experienced T1 and T2 players are ending up in battles with T3, which is fine.
Who are these “new players”? These are players who have not yet get a tier 4 vehicle. They will play with each other and bots at tiers 1-2. The others will play together, and here the problem arises.
Sometimes MM may throw us into battle, where we will find an opponent in a machine 3 tiers higher than us. Apparently, this should be rare, but if it is widespread, the developers will look at it.
What do you think about such solution, which will facilitate the start for new players, and will also make it harder to “play” at the low tiers for the older ones. 😛
