As above.

It may well totally somenthing but as i see the MM mirrors teams i think it should least have a try, maybe event-like.

This would ultimately lead to the larger clans decimating randoms and making it unplayable. So it's a no from me.

I've lost count of the amount of times i saw a 3 man toon of decent players just farm a team , make that 5 and some folks here will have 90% Win rates . DO you really want to see a 5 man toon of type 5s on the other side facing a mix of tanks ?

Do you have ANY idea what a platoon of 5 total idiots will do to a team?

5 in randoms no.

 

To start with it would not work with 3-5-7 mm and single tier platoons but the influence of one good platoon would be bad for everyone else.

Play clanstuff when you want larger platoons. It is there for a reason.

No. Use the search function.

 

Hint: If you have an idea or suggestion, it doesn't hurt to invest 10 seconds of your precious lifetime into thinking about the consequences of that idea or suggestion and how it would impact gameplay. That would help a lot.

I'd rather they got rid of platoons formed before the game totally - and made 'random' actually mean 'randiom'

What can a 5 players platoon accomplish that a 3 players can't? i mean considering the team firepower, number of battle events and average time.

Or remove platoons because it's random battle and the game doesn't have enough random in it.

Three total losers in a platoon can do a LOT to lose a battle. Shooting at the scenery, camping, YOLOing and even ramming into each other and shooting each other. Do you REALLY want a platoon of FIVE of these morons in your team?

 

Edit- they are known to gang up on other players and ruin their battle by blocking and ramming as well. The worst platoons, at least.

5 tank platoons in randoms will swing in both directions. Either you get 5 donkeys making your team almost auto-lose or you get 5 unicums farming the whole enemy team in less than 4 minutes... So, overall even more posts will pop up, complaining about 0-15 or 15-0 battles.

WOT console has it. And if you want good clans etc to dominate you even harder for randoms alone. Go ahead. Imagine a 5 man E25 platoon on the enemy team, or a 5 man Cromwell B platoon. Or a 5 man Defender platoon. I see it on console way too often. 5 man platoons if the enemy team has a 3 and a 2 man platoon can dominate a flank on their own, and push around to crush the rest with the others even faster if they all go the same spot and communicate their targets. 3 can do the same, but toss 2 more guns into the mix, and it's 1/3 of your team's guns. It means you don't have to wait for the others to man up and follow you, you just go in there and clean the room and move on. As you have the guns for it. Not always as easy with 3 if you push aggressive on any flank. And the other two you have with you are more passive. And it's a 5 vs 4. 

 

For FL etc? Sure. That's a different setting. Or if even GB got it's own button. But for 15 vs 15 randoms? Nope.

Besides the problems around players and their impact on the outcome of the match, it would now also break the MM template.

You obviously never platoon / are anti-social

 

Platooning is a fun social event for most people who like to interact with friends and clan mates..... not with total strangers

If platooning in its current form was removed then a lot of people would probably stop playing...

5 man toons would have too much of an impact in a team of 15 players - that goes for both exceptionally skilled players as well as total vegetables.

IMO for gamebalance, 3-men-toons are already too much, but that may be just me.

Maybe both of you misunderstood me a little. I am saying to the OP to consider that, a 3 man platoon is effective enough in a team of 15 you won't need a 5 man platoon. Including their combined effort to lose the battle if they choose to. Also putting a third of the team behind a single tactic or idea is very risky.

Frankly the search function returns for most part just a bunch of idiots. Like you, and like this forum.
