Now I am a sucker for tooning with other players, but I have heard from some of the WoT veterans that once upon a time you could platoon in different tier vehicles, is this true?

 

Would be great to toon with my mates say for instance in my A45 or AT15a whilst they are in their KV2 or Thunderbolt, being regulated to the same tier is the only gripe I have about 'tooning.'

Correct, however too many people would put a low tier vehicle in a platoon of T10s or similar, resulting in their team coming at a disadvantage.

It wasn't a good thing at all. it was so innefficient that I forgot it was a thing until you mentioned that. Imagine people playing tier X and bringing a tier 1 I to battle for lols.

The problem was.  You had platoons consisting of a T1 Cunningham and a Maus.  Because, you know, "It;s funny"

but yes you used to be able too. I had a clan mate who would only take his S-51 out in tier 10 toons. I also did  a number of missions in troll toons (kill TD/Heavy 2 tiers higher for example). They stopped it as you would occasionally see tier 1/2s with 8/9s and it was deemed bad. but I would rather have an active tier 2 in a tier 8 battle than 2 afk scum.

I guess it wouldn't work with the 3-5-7 matchmaking anyway.

Still strange that they let you play pref mm tanks in platoon with normal mm tanks. :confused:

Yes ,those terrible times are over ,thank God.

So you are one of those idiots that tended to put their team in a disadvantage by using KV2s in t10 battles,eh?

GG

Side note, if you insist on being a *edited*, you can take a pref MM tank and platoon with a normal one, be hasty, they r removing pref MM.

Edit @NoobySkooby I like you, but I found that behaviour just unacceptable. It showed disrespect to the other 13 players on your team

Yeah, but there were other times. Arty had +3 MM had some dpm not like now, and with monster alpha. S-51 was the best arty in its tier, one who could oneshot a tier 9 or 10. So it wasn't really that bad as i regularly seen good arty players with that thing outperforming other "top" arties in the match. I mean the top arty was tier 8 so playing a tier 7 is not the end of the world. Maus+T1Cunningham on the other hand is another thing altogether...

Where do you see him saying he wants to, or as you say has, done what you say? It seems he didn't; you did.

Well, considering AT15a is tier 7 with PMM (at least IIRC), that would not be a fail platoon, because both tanks can see at most tier 8.

Indeed.

But you are condemning the t6 in the platoon (Skooby's friend in this case) to always be middle and bottom tier.

The A45 on the other hand doesnt have pref MM at all.

I am imagining old open tier toons with the team damage system of today... oh my that sounds like a lot of trolling.

T7, T7, T6, T6.

Over to you.

KV-2 works better as bottom tier! More HP to farm! :trollface:

 

But, on a serious note, I agree with WG decision to limit platoon to same tier only. Less stress on MM and no troll platoon allowed.

Yes, and thankfully they changed that......getting Tier 2 with Tier 6 was not funny....

Not strange, just lazyness on WGs part (comparing tiers is easy, comparing maximum MM tier requires work). Plus WG wanted to get rid of PMM tanks and forget that they exist for years.

Oh the rage in chat whenever a fail toon like that happened. Happy memories...
