World of Tanks Improves its Matchmaking System


World of Tanks receives today a new content update introducing Tier X light tanks, new SPG mechanics and major improvements to the matchmaking system. This update addresses players' major concerns. Watch the trailer below.

The new matchmaking system uses server-based algorithms so teams always have the same number of tanks at the top/middle/bottom of the list. It also reduces the instances of map duplications and limits the number of SPGs (self-propelled guns) to 3 per team.

Regarding SPGs, with this update, these vehicles become long-range support fire vehicles that can debilite enemy tanks and support their teammates from afar.

“9.18 is one of the most significant updates ever introduced, both in terms of the importance of the issues it tackles and sheer scope of fundamental changes it simultaneously brings into the game,” said Thaine Lyman, World of Tanks Product Director. “It’s been a massive quest for the team. We are thankful to players who pitched in to help us improve the core gameplay aspects. We’ll continue refining these newly introduced features, while also working on further improvements that fundamentally push the quality of the game forward.”
