I have a theory why platoon players often see +2 tier match making these few latest patches.

I believe it is related to the fact that the match maker as of late keeps track of individual player last played maps and tries to put the platoon on a map where they have not yet been. And the amount of maps you can get in each tier is highly limited. The biggest difference in maps you can get is in let's say tiers 6 / 8 / 10. So the MM keeps track of 2 or 3 players at the same time. It sees a tier 6 platoon and it goes like - these guys have not been in Stalingrad lately (Min tier 8.) etc. etc.

 

I hope this topic is still relevant!

Is it easier to put a platoon into a group of 7 or a group of 3?

WG have also said that not putting platoons as the top three was deliberate but the last patch, maybe one before, had increased the chance of this happening.

I've seen it happen a few times, lately. However, you need to have a platoon of different tank types. The MM does not put three heavy tanks as the top tier tanks in a 3:5:7 match.SO, if you can form a platoon of 1 heavy, 1 medium and 1 TD you have a chance

3/5/7 MM just needs to die painfully in a fire, no real discussion about it
