Hello,

 

I am here to leave a suggestion and I just wanna know what people think of it.

Suggestion: They should add that you're allowed to play with 1 tier higher and lower in platoons. Just to make platoons more fun to play with friends.

Example: If your teammate chooses a Tier VIII tank that you are allowed to chose VII, VIII and IX. 

 

Let me know what you guys think of this idea.

As had been said numerous times before, that would be manipulation of the matchmaker. Unless of course they both get weighted the same (highest tier). Then it is a failplatoon.

 

So my vote is no.

Thanks for the explanation, If they did want to do this they had to change it a bit yeah.

I never had a problem with people tooning in different tiers as long as it wasn't a huge difference

But back then lights had diff mm already so a T8 light with a t9 or 10 tank wasn't a bad idea I'd say

Anyway I'm afraid it won't be changed back to that so... To bad?

this used to be the way to complete some of the RNG missions. I recall using the 50 100 with a TX toon mate for one of them

 

but alas it got abused

No me neither... Or a maus with a lol tractor.

But that's what I meant with huge tier difference.
If it was just 1 different I never cared much.

My 'favourite' was a Loltractor and a Cunningham tiered with a T9 medium tank on Highway... I was in a T6 Light and thought that was bad enough matchmaking...
Still the Loltractor was one of the last tanks to be killed on our side - we were south spawn and he hid in the darkness of the gully that comes off the river just north of spawn

But back to the point... 2 T8's platooning with a T7 manipulate the MM so the T8's cannot be bottom tier... so there is very little chance of WG going for this

At least base it on maximum Battle Tier.   It's very annoying that you cannot platoon a SMM tank with a tank one tier lower.   When people are playing T8-SMM, I'd often rather take out the Scorpion than the SP.

Agree! I have fond memories of platooning with mates in T-34-3's/Type59's and the T-34-1. Those made some very fun games back in the days.

 

But also as important is not handicapping, down weighting, platoon in the template MM. So that platoon effectively get even more bottom tiered games compared to single played games.
