All right people, it's time to jump right in! I've been planning to make this post since weeks now because I hoped that the next patch will adjust some vehicles, but it came out today and the gameplay is still the same. I've been playing ground forces since beta mainly with german tanks. After I researched my first T5 tank, I stopped the german trees and focused on russian and american vehicles. Currently I'm going for the M26 Pershing altough american vehicles have nothing to do with this post. Lately, I've been playing Realistic battles.

Battle ratings are used by War Thunder to determine matchmaking in-game. Battle ratings are calculated by examining how well an aircraft or ground unit fares in different game modes, and they may differ for each game mode for the same vehicle for example, an aircraft or ground unit may perform considerably better in arcade mode than realistic battles mode, and so will have a higher battle rating in the former. This allows for a balanced game at all ranks and using all vehicles, meaning that certain nations having technological advantages at different periods in the game's timeline is not an issue when playing, and planes that are too powerful do not ruin gameplay for those flying less effective aircraft. For Arcade Air Battles, a formula is in place that calculates your overall Battle Rating, aka the Battle Rating that the Matchmaker will use to match opponents against you, based on the three highest aircraft in your lineup in regards to their individual BR. What does that mean for you, as a player? As you progress through the research trees, it may happen that you unlock a new aircraft of considerably higher BR than the other aircraft in your current lineup. This system, to a certain extent, will allow you to use this new aircraft, while keeping your overall lineup competitive against other players you may face.
I have this feelng but in high tier maybe they should Still doesn't provide any valid excuse as to why the Germans can't squad with the Brits or the Americans. What even is the problem? It's a ww2 game based on that, to a point..
