Not the fail platoons as such but there was never anything wrong with platooning up in say an E25 with someone in an SU-100 as an example. Same MM range so that should be our choice.

its not ruining everyone's fun, even in a proper game with good matchmaking there will always be that one player with no dmg done and being preety much useless, and isnt there a ranked mode for tier10 tanks?

But you can still failplatoon by taking a Valentine II with a regular tier 4 light, or a tier 4 heavy with a tier 4 medium, or a SMM premium with a regular MM tank of the same tier.

 

And they never really did ruin anyone's game.  What ruined the games were the idiots who thought it was a huge problem and would spend half the battle whining about it then TK the low tier tank.

its not really about the act of doing a failplatoon, what i really want is to get back the ability to platoon with a tier or two lower than you since i have a few friends who start playing now and i dont wanna spend all my credits on low rank tanks [which gets even worse cuz my account got cracked while i wasnt playing and got a few of my high tier tanks sold and now i need to farm back for them]

You aren't doing them any favours though constantly dragging them into battles against tanks four tiers higher.  Just buy those low tier tanks, they won't cost you anything in the long run.  Even less if you can get them on a discount.  Use the opportunity to start researching a new tree.

But low tier tank earn credit almost for free. You spend 50k for a tier 3 and in 5 game you're already on par and start earning. 

Do as Homer_J said: start a new line you play with your friend. You will still get money while having fun platooning with them. ;)

Of course it did. 

 

You are essentially fighting 14 v 15, and in some cases it used to be 13 v 15 because the idiot's would bring two useless tanks with them. 

 

You basically got punished and were more likely to have a crap game because idiots were allowed the option to purposely ruin a game by the game's code, screwing over 12 or 13 other people.

 

One of the best decisions WG ever made to be honest.

But you by failplatooning might add a second one who does nothing. And no, atm, there's no ranked.

If that were the case Simeon would have said 11 or 12 v 15.

Mixed tier platoons sometimes made personal missions easier.

 

In any mission to "Do a lot of damage", taking a tier 8 with tier 9s or 10s eliminated the possibility of being top tier in a 6/7/8 game and so increased the chances of doing the mission.

Or we just leave it as it is, because failplatoons were a really bad thing. There are 23756 tanks in the game, it should not be hard to find a few ones that can platoon with each other.

Actually, I quite liked platooning with various +1/-1 tiered tanks especially when grinding lines. Say I'm grinding a tier 9 tank I used to platoon with guys that wanted to play tier 10, everyone happy. I can grind my tier 9 while they can still play their tier 10 tank.

 

And let's not talk about bringing the KV-2 into a tier 10 match for the lols and still ending up top XP and maybe even damage.
