When running 5 in a platoon the worst decision was to implement the same tier as the leader. 5 out of 25 games the platoon will be low tier in the group of 15 with the occasional showing in the top 7 of 15. It's horrible. 

Prior to the change using the same standards of tiers as single play was way better! This way platooning could adjust fire and selection becomes wider for players! 

IF you're going to punish players for platooning maybe limit it to 1 tier difference. We see a lot of 3 tier difference, like way too much! Tier VII in a Tier X match? Tier III in a tier VI? C'mon,,, it's literally shooting fish in a barrel and being punished for playing with friends.

What world of tanks are you playing? The matchmaker only looks for +-2.

But anyway, 5 man platoons gives you a significant advantage, so wg tries to match you up against another five man, or 2 platoons etc. (At least that is how I think it works from experience) and if there isn't enough players then of course you're gonna get the short end of the stick...

Worst decision was allowing 5 in a platoon

This is categorically not true.

It only puts MY platoon (2-5 man) under tiered against the red teams top tier platoon(s).

Rarely if ever do I ever see any other green team under tiered platoons, unless we're all under tiered, facing the reds with one or more platoons in tier, usually in heavies.....

So unless you happen to be in the other green team platoon with mine, you must be on the red team's top tiered platoon(s).

If you are on the green team with me, my condolences.

There's not enough pluses for this comment.  Should have reduced it to 3, like PC did.  They figured that part out, at least.  Why can't we?

It was better than having 7 man platoons that’s for sure.

There are no three tier differences anymore, though there were when fail platooning was an easy to do thing. 

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.
