So, this is a whine that you don't have any friends?

Platoons are matched against each other. So if you have two loving bois in enemy team, you also have two loving bois in your team. That means its fair. So live with it or deinstall the game.

Yes, as well as jealousy and cry for attention. It's spring, after all. No wonder he feels lonely. Question that will remain unanswered is if this thread is an attempt to make someone specific take a hint and reciprocate his feelings, regular old jealousy, or desperate cry for anyone to ask him out.

True, there's so much denial in one post I almost thought we were in Egypt.

Not unless you give us a good reason to.

This is the best argument that i have ever seen.

You are totally right, we all agree with you and WG should do this just because you say so.... kappa

Is it far too much to ask for a  reason for this request?  Or just link us the replay of the battle that triggered it?

I guess some bad players grouped up and touched very bad places on you together..

Shame on them..

but your complains has to go to Brazzers.com

because of the group violation you have endured...

How about putting a tiny bit of effort in? There's some potential for a decent thread here.

 

I don't want a divided matchmaker myself, but platoons do cause some issues. They are not directly tied to platoons, but tend to 'amplify' the issues inherent in the 3-5-7 system. 

The matchmaker matches platoons, or is strongly biased to do so. This causes issues with matchmaking for platoons.

 

In a 3-5-7 game, a top-tier platoon needs to have an equivalent on the enemy team. Most likely for the mid-tier tanks too, bottom-tier does not seem to require a 'platoon match'. Regardless, it causes hiccups when three tanks have to fit into three or five slots in a battle. It's hard to fit them into the slots, and even harder to find a 'match'.

This is likely the cause of what seems to be an utterly borked matchmaking for platoons. Two-man platoons can have very good matchmaking - if there's another platoon with the same setup. Two heavies or HT/MT combo seems to be ideal here. Works well for getting shoddy MM for LTs, though, so that's something.

 

Furthermore, platoons enhances the effects of having only three tanks on top. Randomly selecting three tanks for the top-tier slots tend to cause some mismatch - but using platoons to fill those slots causes more. The reason why is that players with roughly the same skill level tend to platoon.

If you pick platoons randomly, there's likely more potential to get a 'skill mismatch' because the platoons are 'stacked'.

 

This makes for incredibly uninteresting games for just about anyone involved (well, average-ish players likely find it refreshing to manhandle an enemy 'play4fun' platoon). Steamrolls are not fun. It's frustrating to be on the losing end, and often frustrating to be on the winning side as well. It becomes a 'metagame simulator' when it's less about winning and more about finding damage to do before you win/lose.

UNless you have a dirty re-roll you DON'T play WoT. Considering you haven't played on this account since December.
