Hi,

Can we please have mixed tier platoons back for tiers 8-10?

Tiers 8-10 all see tier X battles so it's not fail platooning, and it increases the ability of people to platoon with friends in a more flexible and fun way. Especially with the various ops/events/contracts available.

I don't know about being able to platoon 8's with 10's but you should be able to platoon 9's with 10's. Fully upgraded 9's are more than capable of performing well in tier 10 games.

Seriously, if it's just for fun then why can't you or your friend use same tier tanks?  If someone does not have tier X then others have to go down to same tier and help him to grind the tier X tank

there are some tanks that are quite synergistic with each other. And fun to play even when bottom tier.

 

And it's nice to ensure everyone gets their X2 s out of the way, or to help them get mission/contract requirements out of the way while in platoon.

 

Given how mm tends to put our platoons in bottom tier, having a mixed tier platoon is less of a detriment to the team.

Some of us don't like playing the same tank endlessly, and because we all have different tanks/classes and tier spreads of tanks it can be hard enough putting together a platoon of tanks that compliment each other and not become a liability.

I would be interested to know what the options are from WGs perspective.

For example can MM accept tanks of the same tier OR play up to the same battle tier? Can it accept MM +1 only from the leader (so if leader is 8, the rest have to be either 8 or 9)? 

 

This would seriously help me use PMM 8s, but would also help on contracts where people who play together might be on different stages.

Yeah, I wonder if it's a technical matchmaking/team balance issue. I know back in the day, mm used to have big problems trying to fit platoons into matches in a balanced way.

This is all fine and dandy, accept it would mean that most t8 matches wouldn’t have any tier 8 platoons in it, t9 would be worse, poor guys in t7 platoons would be garunteed bottom tier almost every single time.

9's with 10's sounds good.

 

I'm not sold on 8's with 9's.   Even less so with non-PMM 8's with 10's.


  

Some people claim Ensk should be tier restricted.   I don't believe their lies. 

Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of bad advice from players who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.
