Lets face it.The time with big active clans is almost over. Yeah sure...there still might be a few ol' CW clan around but I never liked CW anyway.


 

More into stronghold in tier 6-8 but actually most platooning.


 

It feels that you nowdays almost have to beat people with a stick to join a platoon. Most people stay in their big dead clan and for some reason most of them decide to go completely into solo mode.


 

So what I am saying is: make some "missions" or "quests" that smaller clans can do in random games by platooning or to some extent even solo playing.


 

Perhaps even make tier 4 strongholds or similar mode (on smaller maps?) where you maybe just need 5 players?

Have missions where for example "Earn ___ Amount of XP/DMG/Kills in" But have platoon stuff count to it as well, But can also be done solo.

If it can be done solo then why platoon? It defeats the original purpose, if you want people to platoon then it should be platoon only missions.

You could just leave your dead clan and join one which does do platoons.

I probably platoon 2% of my game time.

 

But I would play SH most of the time if I could. and you don't need to be in clans to do this, just legionnaire up in any that a desperate for that extra tank

The problem with platooning is, that it was most useful/fun in Tier 8 before the MM change. You have enough games to understand, that a player has to be really "thick" upstairs to willingly get even worse MM in platoons than he has playing solo at tier 8:girl:

^ That, platooning below tier 9 is actively punished by the MM so people being reluctant to platoon is understandable. 

 

Credit grinding at tier 8 for example you are generally better off solo.

it would be much easier done in a toon, similar to some of the Personal missions, which people constantly ask me to toon with them for so it works with that..

There are enough platoon for YOU...because you, as most streamers, don't really give a flying cow about teamplay or social gaming.

Besides....this thread is not really primarily about platooning but about what could benefit small clans.

 

I can agree that too some extent its kind of "dumb" as it would probably perhaps be better to just join a bigger clan (as Homer_J pointed out) ...but this is just something I am brainstorming about now....

Just create an alt account, put it in charge of your clan, and draw a fish.  It's as simple as that.

You realize that you have just been trolled right? Fame_Skill4ltu is not the streamer skill4ltu who is the clan skil1 or some such.

I agree there should be more content for solo players and lesser clans.

 

inb4 someone mistakes "more content" with something else.
