Hey Guys!
I really liked Playing 3 levels higher and I would like to restore it in the form of + - 1 platoons or in the options "draw with vehicles 3 levels higher" I like playing like that because it was like 5 years and I liked it the most in WoT that there was no balance
I would like to restore this option to the game
I invite you to Vote in the poll!

Regards! PlacekDefender

If you are talking about the tier spread in platoons, then no. Hell no. That ruined so many matches because of idiots who thought it was funny to join a platoon in a 100% useless tank. I'm very glad that this doesn't happen anymore.

Yeah, let's add more "no play" into the game and put even more weight on the lucky top tiers while adding even more useless tanks into each battle so the 49% bobs can get their "epic challenge" that they obviously need because they've solved the game already in its current shape.

 

I mean, Type 5s and T-43s in the same battle... what could possibly go wrong? Let me guess, that would add "diversity" to the game and the T-43 would have to aim for the weak spots and flank the Type 5 and all would be good?

 

I won't vote anything because "leave it as it is" would almost be like saying that +2/-2 is good while the game has been needing +1/-1 for a long time.

I think being able to platoon with someone 2 tiers lower or higher than you. Considering the fact you often get games where you have tanks either +2 or -2 of your tier. So why shouldn't a E-100 partner up with a Tiger 2 if they get put into a team with other T8 & T10s?

It just won't work in practice. When a tier 8 tank platoons with a tier 6 tank, they are inevitably scumbags who handicap the team. Yes, the "i pley for fun so i can do retarded stuff" mentality makes you a scumbag and a liability.


If you platoon an E100 with a Tiger II you ensure the Tiger II is a weak, slow, irrelevant paper tank without any camo 100% of the time and it needs the stars to align perfectly to have a good game. No, needing lots of luck and a good team roll to do well doesn't make it "more challenging" for the Tiger II.

 

Fail platooning is consciously handicapping the rest of your team, no matter how one tries to sugarcoat it. I could see light tanks being allowed to fail platoon so the bots who view light tank gameplay as carrying binocs and camo net and sitting in a bush 24/7 because they don't want to learn a more complicated, active role can get their "epic 10k spotting carry" games by sitting in a bush, while recording 48% win rate. These players would do the same with top tier tanks and there would be no real harm in them being 3 tiers lower than the enemy top tiers. Even this would handicap the teams but at least light tanks mostly retain some value even in bad matchmaking. However when you start to add tier 6 heavies or mediums into tier 10 battles, you just hurt the game.

I suspect he meant scout MM. Not tier 7 HT's vs tier X HT's

 

And tbh, I do want the option for it to.  As in lights that had scout MM before. Luchs and Type 64 etc was not even adjusted for it. They remained as was. As I've not played my Luchs since it got +2MM that much. As that had 400 games when it had +4 MM. And I miss trolling IS-3 and Tiger II's etc. Or doing a drive by on a Tiger's side while he did struggle to turn after you. And others could get a minor pen buff if they went for scout MM on tier 4 to 8 lights. As you can't be top tier then. No point for the new tier 9's etc.

 

But as I said, as an option. Not forced. As you can't even be top tier with +3. So it would do no harm if it only worked for non platoons.

 

As for restoring platoons to +2? No. I never did see it an an issue for tier 9 to platoon with tier X. But a tier 6 with an 8. You do get the highest MM them. As in tier 8 to X. And dragging a Cromwell B into a tier X game is not gonna work. And it would be less ideal if you had the lowest limit. As then the tier 8 would be top tier all the time. As in an MM exploit.

​You don't actually need a platoon to join a battle in a 100% useless tank.

No, but if you give players the opportunity there are quite a few who won't really care about the 13 teammates because they "pley for fun".

And for quite a few of those.

The fun IS losing AND pissing of their team mates.

I can confirm you don't get any significant punishment for being a total [edited].
