I find when you are 3ppl platoon the matchmaking is match toward high tier and you are bottom tier most of the time even WG promise that after few matches you get at least top tier once. I played 5 games with friends and no top tier even once. Its happening several times now. Is this a issue?

No it's a good thing. Top tier platoons in a 3/5/7 format will break battles, the are too effective in terms of team work to be able to be properly balanced.

 

AFAIK platoons have always gotten worse MM by the very design of the "get into a game fast" method WG use for their match maker. Trying to find "the right game" for three people who must be put into the same team makes the MM think more, which in turn means you'll be put into worse games as the match makers priority distrubutor is que time.

My platoons seem able to do just fine in battles as bottom tier. More often than not occuying the top three damage and xp spots on the team and winning the game.

 

Guess it's just the people you're platooning with?
