Back in the day we would count 3-2-1 and all click battle together.  If you got lucky you would get a few platoons all in the same battle.

 

These days you have to get very lucky or do it at a quiet time.

It should be punishable or not possible at all.

Seen it happen in Ranked.

I can only assume that in order to include players in a clan, if there is only four playing, they have split into two platoons, done the countdown, hoping to have two opposing toons, instead they have both ended up on the same side.

Did they win?:D

Countdown toons used to be a thing. I seem to remember that WG counts this as cheating and some people got banned a good while back. Possibly during the T-22 fiasco. Maybe someone has a better memory or more up to date view on whether this is allowed or if its fine?

I'm pretty sure this was the tactic cheaters used when rigging the T-22.

Countdown is allowed, using it to rig missions would be different.

 

Most people use it to have fun with friends, or at least casual acquaintances.

That's rigging.

 

Ain't that bannable?

 

Not sure if that's something you wanna be openly admitting, especially with your current status. Just saying...

Not really since WG can never prove you counted down in the first place. And although it's rare, take for example morning, or late hours. Big clans with many active players ,or with sub clans  can get  without foul play per say in the same game. It's rare but it happens.

 

People got banned because they rigged missions, not because they were in the same game.

In modes when it is meant to be you or your platoon, vs everyone else, no, it's seen as a cheat. I forget the name of the mode but its coming up again next month as part of a year long event.

you recall that mode where you upgraded one of three different tanks by running over item packs? It was last year and people were complaining some clans were 3 2 1 ing to stack the odds to them being in the last 3 alive. WG decided it was against the rules, but I don't know what the punishment was.

Rare?

 

My foot!

 

My soon likes to peek on my screen and click 'Battle' when he sees me doing so and nearly each time he ends up in the same battle as me, which is very annoying since that little brat is unicum, I should report him to teach him a lesson!

Which has nothing at all to do with random battles.

 

That would be, as I said, using it to rig missions.

 

If all you do is join the same battle and play normally just for once you actually know someone on the other team then that is not a problem.
