Let the hating happen :)

 

I think its time we bring this back into the game, where we can double/triple arty platoon.

 

For the benefits of the game, bring this back

I really don't see the issue with multi arty platoons.  I often find I am focusing the same player as the other arty in my team quite by accident, or if not then by pressing the T key.  The only people who might suffer are the arty on the other team because two sets of eyes watching for tracer is better than one.

sure, cause arty is balanced and got nerfed anyways, especialy with the increase in HE damage since december

 

I really dont understand why we cant platoon with 3 arty 

 

its almost as if WG knows somethings wrong? :amazed:

Jolly good idea, especially if they are linked via TS, people just do not see the usefulness of arty, how they can support your team, also there can be fun to be had in judiciously killing them in your light tanks:trollface:

All platoons do the same regardless of class. I see no reason why SPGs would not be allowed to.

 

"Game balance", "XVM sniping", "Focus Fire" or "runing my game session" are not valid arguments.

 

Today I had an M55 and a GW Panther shooting me in sucession while I was on the AMX 13 90. They lost.

 

Still, impressed by their remarkable skills in targeting the player that was causing the most amount of damage to their time and how effectively they tried (and the GW eventually got me), I've send that player a message stating so. He did pretty well for someone in a team dependant vehicle.

Their scout was too busy getting himself hammered (T-54 LT, 2K WN8, no reroll, died in the first 2 minutes).

 

I don't like TD platoons but those happen as well.

 

All in all, people don't want SPG platoons because SPGs have the ability of getting a much better grasp as what is happening in the field of battle and be able to influence it directly. That's what they don't like. In effect, SPGs are like chess. You can take my pawn but I'll kill your queen.

I don't really see the issue as a game breaker but more, I see three artys per bout the issue. If they could limit it to two I'd find the idea far more enticing.

Limit arty to 1 per team. But allow it to platoon.

Tell that to the game when the Lefh is on sale next time with 3 man arty platoons. But when you do focus on the same as your non platooned team mate, you fire when reloaded and overlapping your stunns. Not holding back and firing when the stun expires. So that he gets a tier X arty shot in the face every 20 seconds and gets perma stunned more or less. 

 

That and considering how 3-5-7 works with regards to the MM rules for top tier SPG's. You would never be top tier. And would see mostly equal tier games in a tier X platoon I suspect. Not that most would mind it, but still. It's not ideal with the current MM and stuns. Even if you play an arty that lacks stuns, like a 3 man FV304 platoon spamming shots in your face every 3 to 4 seconds with module damage.
