The guys I play online with are all on TS and sometimes there's as many as six of us, is there any way to link platoons or play as a group, or does it have to go down the clan route?

no, more than 3 would have too much influence and be too hard to match in the MM.

 

If you want to do stuff with 5 or 6 players then you need to do clan stuff.

Try Team battles, if platoon was allowed to 6 people then it wouldn't  be called random battles mode

No because the last think I want to see is 5+ red twats with 46% dying in the first 10 seconds. its bad enough as it is.

I've played PvP games which do allow larger "platoons" and it does as people have indicated above. It becomes relatively easy for a group of mates to get together and really dominate games, which isn't much fun for anyone else.

Yeah that makes sense.

Console has 5 man platoons. And they dominate the match way to hard if the enemy  team only has a 2 man platoon. If ppl think MM is broken now. Having 6 would def screw it over.

 

Then again.. MM is 3-5-7, not 6-5-4. With 6 you can't even get a 5-10 game, tho he will cheat by 1. He won't do that all the time. And getting equal tier games more due to a 6 man platoon. Could even be considered an exploit by some with the current MM.

Turn options to standard battle only and see if you can click platoons into the same battle.
Often misses, often on opposite, but yeah getting the clan into randoms is great fun.
However 6 co-ordinated by TS in a platoon in the same random, oh yeah that would be fair.
Then again MM is so f****** what the hell go for it as its a stat padders wet dream.

Do a countdown and click battle at the same time and go up and down tiers like we used to for fun as occasionally its good crack and doesn't create super OP platoons from hell.

Team battles or similar gamemodes. Bigger platoons would completely break the game, it's already bad enough as it is sometimes.

The proposal is... original. Responses are unexpected as well... 

I can only add, that waiting queue for the game would be fairly long, as MM would try to match you against similar set of tonks in platoons.

Yeah lets just put a six man platoon of 46% players on one side, and a FAME platoon on other side.

Platoons of 3 can already carry games or throw them. For gods sake keep it at 3.
