Im always playing World of tanks with a friend and i was getting frustrated lately by the matchmaking.

So i Decided to write down 100 games in my IS-3 with one platoon member.This is the result - 

 

66 Tier X games

23 Tier IX games

11 Tier VIII games

 

And yes you can argue that for example it will be few tier X in a tier X game, but a tier VIII game doesnt mean you will meet tier VI either. So if anything the reality is probably even worse. I didnt mark out how many times i met tier VI, but my guess is 2-3 times.

 

This isn't right. I'm pleading to WG to make it less punishing playing with friends. It's sucking the fun out of it.

Yes, i had zero fun with you and your platoon mate when both of you did ZERO dmg.

The new match maker that was implemented to fix the old match maker is terrible I think this point unites the entire player base.

 

The frustration is whenever something is fixed it isn't actually fixed just like the chat issues.

 

OH well 2018 lets see what they break this year :D

I never was a platoon guy, but ever since the new MM i just try to avoid platooning in certain tiers and tanks as it will almost always lead you to being bottom tier. Such is life, i doubt WG give a flying flak about it.

I mostly play in platoon as i find it more enjoyable to play with friends and clan mates on ts. Since the new mm i've kinda just got used to the fact i'm going to be +2 the majority of the time. Think if i raged everytime i was bottom tier i would have quit playing months ago

I platoon about 90% of my battles with my mate and although it does sometimes get frustrating because of the MM I still find it more fun than playing solo.

playing solo is not less frustrating so with friend is at least fun.

It's the result of the fix put in to stop your tier VIII platoon being the only tier VIII tanks in a tier X battle.  That's what happens when WG fix things.  Do you really want them to fix this issue?

Platoons should get exactly the same matchmaking as random players especially since both teams now have platoons equal in tier and number.

 

There is literally no reason to actively punish platooning by giving them far worse matchmaking, this is an online multiplayer game, let people play with their friends on equal footing to those who prefer not to.

Look at the MM thread that is pinned. 200 pages since 5th of July - that is over 4000 posts there. Most of them filled with individual complaints and complex data gathering proving that this new template system is horrible and cancerous to the game on many levels, platoons included.

Now ask yourself - does WG give a damn?

 

The answer consists of only two letters.

You should never see top tier as 3man toon in 3-5-7 MM.Why?,put yourself in enemy team as low tier and you will find out.

 

Being most of the times low tier is harsh also,they should tweak it for middle tiers as average.

I agree, i obviously like to play platoon myself. For me WoT is relaxing game you drink a cup of coffe to while playing with a friend.

But it gets frustrating almost always fighting tanks that are better then your own. Over and over again. 90% of the time.

I mean, i rarely play a tank just for the fun of it. I mostly grind tanks because i like to work against goals. Grinding a stock tank against two tier higher tanks 2/3 of the games is just....... yeah
