Ah, you're too young to remember this, but once upon a time they actually did, at least for platoons of 4-7 players.

 

As we don't have the feature anymore, you can guess how well it did, even with a playerbase thrice the size it is now.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

Was just about to post this. This is why we now have 5 man platoons instead of just 3. When they scrapped the 7v7 game mode, they changed platoon limit to 5. A very bad choice imo.

OP the player base isn't big enough for what you're suggesting. I'm 100% solo and have no problems playing against Platoons. 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

No, but toons should be matched against  same tier toons.

 

^^this^^

But that implies overall rebalancing of the MM, hence clearly don't hold your breath.

That is going to be all kinds of impossible to even do that. You want longer wait times? That's how you get them. And solo player match ups would have it so much worse

Even longer times? this game is fast matching players, its one of the fastest mm i ever saw and somewhat they are being so fast that theres unbalance, at night it may be longer thorugh... but its becasaue there are too much tiers and few people, they should remove tier 1, 2, and 3, no one play there other then farmers and new player may get a bad impression from the game
Often times, people simply deny the existence of what they do not understand, and anyone who tells them otherwise is a liar. What they don't know stays unexplained and they are happy with that

 No one wants longer wait times, but we will get them anyway. Platoon MM is broken for some time and they (Gamewarring) are refusing to adress those issues. Even thou it's the most frequent reason for overall bad MM.

What do you expected to see in forums? is not to talk the things that are wrong with the game? i dont' get why should we expect other things from it,WG says people to go to forums and let there the suggestions and problems the game have

I don't think there is anyone on here that believes the MM doesn't need to be fixed in some way.  Do a search.  You will find many, many threads.

 

But this suggestion is not realistic.

Is well known in other games the disadvantages of mixing the mm, in alot of games who search solo should be matched with only solo players, what do you think? would you like it? 

 

Personally I don’t mind platoons per se, but as stated I think they should be evenly matched per team, and limited to how many of one tank are in each platoon. Like you said a platoon of 5 Deathstars isn’t right. 
But, wouldn’t it be fun to have like maybe 7 man platoons of same tier Artillery in an event? Sorta like Ranked Battles but for instance tier VIII Arty playing on Mines, and Province type maps.

There was a time when they did. The results were not good.

 

Platoon size was up to 7 and any platoon of 4-7 people got put into a separate matchmaking queue. 


War is a Democracy and the enemy always gets a vote.

3 MoE's: E-25, M41 Walker Bulldog, E-50, Snakebite, E-75, T32, Tiger 131, Skoda T25 - In order obtained

This.

Platoon limit switch back to 3 and Wr should be tracked separately for platoon play than for solo play!

When platoon matchmaking was a thing, the wait times could honestly be over 5 mins.

I say over, as it actually times out after 5 mins, or it did then.
