I'v been toonin here and there  since the new MM hit the live servers. And i honestly can't remember more then 1-2 games while in tier 6-7-8 to get a top tier game as a toon.

 

Heck even a same tier game would be  a god send, but no, get 3 people tooning and best you will get is mid tier/bottom tier alternating over and over and over and over with a same tier MM once in a blue moon?

 

So i started recording the statistics  for the latest sessions.

 

In 47 games as tier 8 toon, NONE were as top tier, ONE was same tier MM and the rest was either tier 9-10 games.

26 games as tier 7, ONE was top tier, 2 were same tier the rest mostly tier 9 8.

As tier  5-6 25 games played NONE as top tier, 4 as same tier MM the rest tier 6-7-8.

 

It seems like if you toon with friends to enjoy the game basicly you handicap yourself to the worst possible MM possible most of the time, it seems like a 3 man toon has somewhere the 1% ratio to get a top tier battle, and i think that is dumb.an unfair.

 

You should get even while tooning at least 10% 15% games as top tier or freaking same tier MM, but no, it' ain't happening.

 

 

So any body else noticed this, or i had the worst possible luck since the patch?

Yes, tooning is broken. You get much worse MM if tooning now.

Confirmed as well here. 1 top tier game in 30, in a 2 man platoon.

 

Because obviously, platooning is bad and WG prefers to push people to solo

Platoons are either a friends getting together or force multipliers, and sometimes both. It's a shame if friends getting together for a battle are penalised, but if it is true that MM is harsher for platoons then it's a good thing if the force multiplier aspect is balanced this way.

Yeh does seem this way, platoons are screwed over quite a lot.

It seems to me that platooning with SMM tanks works decently. Had a mix of top mid bottom at tier 7 and 8 in a two man platoon.

Trying tier 8 with 3-man was tier X all the time.

Aye, platooning since 9.19 is an absolute mess. Tracked my platoon battles over a few days and had 1 (yes,1) top tier battle in the 3/5/7 setup, 4 midtier and all the rest were bottom tier out of a total of 48 games.

Now that's a darn good idea.

However, I do agree with the 3/5/7 structure, platoons of 3 are penalized.

I was really enjoying the one tier and two tier battles.

It shows that they are possible.

I have no idea why WG would limit them.

Its actually not so bad. As a platoon you almost never get to be top tier ofcourse (nuuuu that would be unfair to some tomato pleb!) but apart from that the matchmaking is pretty "soft"...that is - not putting you against TOO many higher tier tanks usually...

Because then, you will almost certainly have to load gold (or most players will automatically) use gold to shoot at the +1 Tier or +2 tier tanks....

Make a new thread if you want to whine about gold ammo, I'm sure no one has ever written one before. This thread is about platoons in the new MM post 9.19

I'm trying to grind my 59-16 which is utterly useless in tier 8 games. Me and 2 friends were all grinding it together but we've had to split up and play separately just to make the matchmaking bearable.

Well, since platooning is one of my favorite activities, I think I will take a break from WoT and wait to see if this is changed in the next update.  I've started messing around in the PC version of Blitz and I am enjoying it.  So essentially, I am voting with my feet.  See you guys in a while.  No sense complaining.  :popcorn:
