Just played a game where there were 3 E25's platooned together. All 3 were unicums. So wargaming, you stopped arty platooning with 3 at a time yet your allowing one of the most op tanks to destroy games. This needs sorting by stopping any premium op tanks to platoon in 3's. This game is getting more pay tor win by the day. Screen shot attached.

Your minimap looks like when I try to make a neat graph in Excel.

It's a mod called pathfinder and yes, it is legal before you say it isn't. I run aslains mods which again, are all legal.

Yeah? I sent a ticket over it, and that's not the reply I got.

Jesus all those colours..does the modpack come with free painkillers? It must feel like you are naked playing after every patch. Idk how anyone can possibly make use of all that info and still be able to play coherently, but each to their own. 

 

At the OP, well there is a world of difference between SPGs and e-25's but lets not go there. Out of interest do you think you would have more or less of a chance if they had been platooned up in any other tier 7's? T-29's maybe, or Jagdpanthers? The problem isn't just the tanks, 3 good players together like that is a challenge whatever they are in. Rather than worry about trying to stop them from doing it, think more about trying to beat them (and I suspect very strongly that the answer to how isn't in that technicolour modpack).

Having just googled it, it shows on the minimap where climb routes are and also puts a line on the terrain in the 3d view of the route to use. The mind boggles that people put this stuff together and / or use it when it can crapon the gameplay so much, but then have the gall to moan about 'op platoons'. 

 

edit- just saw OP says doesnt use it, but still..

I get that some people prefer to play vanilla or minimal, it's just something I use to make my game more enjoyable, as you said, each to their own. My point regarding the platooning is not around worrying about trying to stop them, I'm more on about fairness for arty players who like to platoon but cannot due to current rules. you cannot have one rule for one class and not the others.

Well the class is so very different to the others in it's unique nature to be able to target people all over the map, so it doesn't really play by the same rules to start with. That's the problem.

The point the OP is trying to make is that the effect 3 VERY good players in a crazy mad TD can have is very similar to having platooned artillery.

It's not too hard to have a decisive effect on a battle in an E-25 after all (and I will never be a unicum! - and this is only with 2 average players)
