I was told WG is planning to return back to the old MM where a tier 4 would meet tier 8, if joined a tier 6 platoon. IDK if that's true but if it is, it would be better if WG returned also the derp guns that were removed from vehicles, like VK28.01 for instance. Otherwise these vehicles would be unplayable.

 

Do you guys know if it's true? I like the current MM and limitations for tiers in platoons and I would hate to see the game returning to ancient times.

Never going to happen. OP, you should give some serious consideration over where you source your news from.

I actually quite liked platooning with tanks in a +1/-1 setup. My buddies would play T10 tanks and I'd play Tier 9.

And lets not forget taking my KV-2 into T10 matches and still coming out top damage frequently because players in this game are terrible. XD

In the old days I've one shotted Jagdtiger with KV-1's derp gun (122 mm) by shooting at its lower frontal plate but that difference you like worked only for derp gun vehicles. All others were suffering of constant ricochets due to the too low penetration and that wasn't fun at all. That's what I'm hoping it won't happen ever again.

I didn't trust the source, that's why I came here to ask if it was true. I don't read the news section of the website unless there's a major update, much less news from other websites. So I figured the best way to know would be to ask here.

I don't see why they would. As in scout MM, or having the 3601 brawl with a Maus considering the feedback when they removed it.

 

Tho as pointed out above, some + 1 MM in platoons, like 9 with X should be allowed again.

I wouldn't mind of WG went with the old tank weight system. So you could, once again, have a difference between teams in number of TD/heavy/medium tanks. And also allowing for a greater variance in tier setup.

Some of the funniest games was the full T7 heavy tank battles. Filled with prinarily Tiger H, and IS. And then some T29/KV-3 etc.

I hate the current MM for Tier 10 ATM..... Im trying to get into it but with full T10 lineup, it feels like im back to being a new player again at Tier 1 as it just drops you in the deep end like that and its most annoying and off putting because i want to learn but just cant..... Yet when i play Tier 8 or 9, i am seeing T10 more often than not, just dont see that when im in T10 :/

no it shouldnt be allowed, because then everyone will exploit it, 2 tier 10s +1 tier 9 with current mm templates means, that those 2 platoon mates will always be top tier.

Old MM was garbage and so were the stupid lack of platoon restrictions.

Not if the MM treats them like a tier 12MM platoon, or always puts them in tier 9/X games vs with 8. Now, this could potentially only work on tier 9 and X. Less so lower down.

I agree with the bit about the VK 28.01 getting its derp gun back. :great:
