One way to force people into low-mid tiers is a harsher economy...

 

The other way is to make low-mid tiers fun to play.

 

Or just make low tiers profitable again.

Gaijin reduced the profits of flying higher tiers but bots give rewards anyway, feeding cash into economy. Not sure if intended.

 

Low tiers take forever to grind a good sum of lions or get a level of experience. I do not think scraping up for repairs that way will work. Only enthusiasts and new players will play those.

It's not like MM is actually working, you are still fighting an uphill battle in tiers 3-5.

 

Limiting tiers or nations can force people back into Arcade.

 

I vote for increased wait times if it helps.

People would be half forced to fill the low tiers for money? I'd rather go with the fun.

Low tiers are plenty fun already. Don't see how you would want to improve them.

The only thing making the low tiers no fun is the occasional invasion of roflstomp by planes double the tier.

That would be one.

 

The fun is not guaranteed. Sometimes just by looking at the team lists, you know you should quit immediately. Usually I am too lazy to do so, and thus end up speding a few minutes in queue and a few minutes flying to my certain doom knowing that only little fun will be included.

 

In those battles, I know I will get shot down. Even getting a heroic balancer kill will not fix it, as a sentiment of hopelessness and frustration is rarely fun.

So fix the matchmaker. We've been through this already.

Heh... It's the circle of life: fix the matchmaker -> populate the lower tiers to fix matchmaking -> fix matchmaking to populate the lower tiers, and so on...

 

By the way, there are also significant balance issues in lower tiers, though you tend to not notice those so much as the MM gets all the attention.
