Matchmaking Improvements for EU

The same improvements that have been applied for US server recently now available for EU (since today's server restart).

This includes smart matchmaking system that takes into account the number of battles played on each particular vehicle. See the chart below:

First N battles (N varies according to vehicle tier, class, premium/non-premium status) on each vehicle are chosen not according to full spread, e.g. 8-12 for tier 7 heavy tanks, but according to decreased combat tier spread, allowing this vehicle to be at the top part of the team list.

Being only the first step of many, this improvement is aimed at helping players adjust to their newly-obtained vehicles.

October 15 - October 21 Poll Results

3169 players took part in the recent poll expressing their opinion on the new community portal for US server.

Almost part of the voters (49%) either like both designs or don't care much about the appearance of the main WoT portal. The other half mostly was positive about the new web resource (36% against 15%)

As always a new poll is up.
