Sooo..

Yesterday I played 20, tier 8 battles with my mates and out of those 20 battles, in 17 we were bottom tiers, and in 3 we were mid tiers. Not a single top tier battle, not even a full tier 8 battle occured.

 

Question:

IS this a bug, or is it an intended feature of the new MM to screw platoons? Like.. seriously? How is this fun for us? 

Sure I could play alone but at the moment I don't want to. Is this why we deserved to be f**ked by MM? :o

 

I rarely come here on the forums to whine, but boy I sure as hell upset. I'm not saying I don't like the new MM, if I play alone it works as intended (more or less) but whats up with platoons? C'mon..

I opened a topic like yours a bit down..and it seems many players are unsatisfied about this setup !! in tier 10 platoons you will never see an tier 8 tank,but in tier 8 platoons you will find them battle by battle thanks to Wargaming "smart" staff workers !!! i`m sick of them,they f*cked us with every update they relase !!

Feature to reduce the power of platoons

It's a sensible feature to stop seal clubbing lower tiers with OP Cromwell (etc.) platoons. The only people who don't like it are those that suddenly realise where their WR came from.

Wrong !! many tanks at tier 8 don`t have enought pen to fight against tier 8 heavy tank,how it`s souppose to fight against tier 10 !! in platoon you know that sometimes you have on someone who keep your back as long in random players don`t give a f*ck about you !!

So because some players 'abuse' platoons your average player who enjoys the social side of randoms should be punished. How does that even begin to make sense.

i dont even know where do people get the nerves to ask for favourable MM while they platoon

 

coordination on teamspeak is not enough for you? you need more advantages? :teethhappy:

I only play this game with friends, with about 50-60 games since last patch, not a single match as top tier.

95% of the games are vs tier x, the main problem is that you cant earn any silver(more then 10-20k with prem acc) with this matchup with a tier 8 premium tank because you have to use so much premium ammo.

And with tier x like they are today, its hard to earn silver there too. It wouldnt be as big of a problem if WG had not removed most of tier 9-10 tanks weakspots. Like Maus, Type 5 and so on..

 

So WG, how am I supposed to earn silver (without buying it from store) if I only play in platoons?

It's not asking for favourable MM is it.

you get to play with friends and coordinate your play to get an advantage at the cost of frequent +2 games...play solo you get the disadvantage of relying on your own play at the cost of not so frequent +2 games

 

seems pretty balanced to me,its been 5 years of platoons farming winrate - wasnt that enough? it was time for a change

I don't really see why people complain about the mm anymore. Only 3 top tier tanks kinda guarantee you'll be competitive anyway.

Which is not what you said at all. You claimed that platoons were asking for favourable MM when clearly they are not.

what the f*ck is "i dont like playing as bottom tier in platoons" if not asking for favourable MM? they want not to play as bottom tiers as often which is clearly in their favour as a platoon...platoons should have "harder" MM than solo,period

 

if you give platoons same MM as solo you favour them,as it was the case for last 6 years or whatever wot is out

Yet what's being asked for is basically the same MM as non-platooned players which is not asking for favourable MM, as you stated, is it.

MM is a joke...just bulls*it !!! I don`t care if I play platoon or not..why they didn`t set the MM to be 3-5-7 but like 3(tier9)-5(tier8)-7(tier7) why I have to fight agains tier 10 every battle...how you would play pr example if you are with Pilot and you have to kill an Type 5 Heavy on Himmlersdorf !! 80% from tier 8 tanks don`t have enought penetration to fight agains tier 8,but what can we say against tier 10...MM is a joke,WG pee on players every time they have the chance !!
