Hey guys, since last patch hit I can count on one hand the amount of times I've been top tier while platooning in the 3/5/7 system. And then the past few days all of a sudden my platoon seems to be top tier around just under half of the time. Freakish run of games maybe or has some minipatch hit that I've been unaware of?

lol i think you were just really lucky. In last month or something it happened only once to me. Also saw one when i played solo. Really this new mm system is one big disaster.. God how i miss old mm. As always you miss something only when you loose it.. Damn i probably would even pay some euros per month for posibility to play in oldy goody mm..

Definitely more top tier platoons.  That feeling when you get a 3xTier 10 platoon of 45% in a 3/5/7.  Priceless.

Ew, the lack of top-tier platoons were kind of the sweet side of platoon-MM being borked. Adds more to the variance, as platoons are less likely to be of mixed skill and tanks. Probably something WG realized, but largely ignored.

had a lot of single-tier tier 5 games lately,

apart from that I dont notice a difference for me.

I've been grinding a couple of Tier 9 tanks so I've only noticed Tier 10 platoons - definite increase a week ago.  I don't recall seeing a 3 x Tier 10 platoon in a 3/5/7 match until last week and I've seen a few now as well as 2xT10 platoons.  Still not the norm but not rare.

Yeah noticed it too because in one game they had a blunicum top tier toon and we had bots...

The impact of top tier platoons was discussed before the change and I think WG effectively acknowledged it by never picking platoons for the top tier in a 3/5/7 template.  Now they are creeping in presumably because platoons complained that they were being disadvantaged in the new match maker.  They can have a huge impact on the game.  Really is ridiculous if you get a platoon on donkeys or blunicum players as top tier - GG right from the off.
