Platoons already get a different match making.   If you are in a platoon, you tend to get placed into more difficult situations.

 

Naturally the machine is not foolproof.   Yesterday had the privilege of being on a team with a FIVE man Ram 2 patoon.     The reds had FIVE man Tiger 131 platoon.

Game over in about... 5 minutes.

You can’t have a poll on platoons on the forums

It’s a waste of time

The better players realized years ago that platoons allow them to further improve their well above average win rates because of the inherent flaw in having squad play within a random selection of players

And WGC ignore the issue of platoons and the MM and rather encourage players to platoon

It took them years to sort out fail platoons. Have never addressed 4-5 man platoons despite not being allowed on PC. Have never properly addressed mismatched tier platoons despite Paingod himself saying that he’d put in a ticket during a weekly post a year or so ago.

So just accept it’s The World of Platoons. Sometimes it works for you and sometimes against you. Overall it probably balances out but it can be terribly frustrating at times.

Better idea is to just fix the MM so that it puts even numbers tiers of tanks on both sides.

That is the basis, there is no need to poll, i think everyone already agree with that one! or may be not, since alot of players dont like equality
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

I voted no, all that needs to happen is MM needs to balance each team with the same tier Platoon, it's not rocket science.

1st game in tonight

5 man red platoon v 4 man green platoon

That’s 9 out of 30 platooned

Red platoon takes 4 of top 5 places

Green team platoon does not

Enter 2nd game 11 platooned players over 5 platoons

WGC developers - just play your own game and realize what’s happening with your World of Platoons

Played last night and literally me on green was only one not platooned and one red. Everyone else was in one.
I have a screenshot if I need to prove it.

Not complaining though. Just doesn’t happen to me very much.

It was very quiet.

Yes.

Platooning is just a legit cheat. And also a silly excuse for WG for the unfair MM. 


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

Yes platoons need to be eradicated! This platoon tyranny has been going on for too long! Platoons are bad for the game because they make people play with their friends! Those bastards. This is a team game, goddamn it! There is no place here to play with friends, only with team! Ideally random team! Enough with the unfair coordination and tactics and bullying poor, clueless solo players who can't seal club in peace! Clan battles need to be banned too! Come to think of it, ban the clans altogether, they promote platoon play and platoon play is bad because reasons! You people who can pick platoons apart solo, you have a separate server too! Hackers! Game is unfair and too hard! Needs to be fair and easy. All have to drive same tank, on same map, at same time, in circles, foreeeeeevaaaa!

 

So... did I read the vibe of this thread right, or did I miss something?

 

I'm sorry, but you're not actually expecting me to be serious after reading all this nonsense, do you? :)

 

You know how we often complain WG is disconnected and doesn't listen to the community? Yeah, this ain't it. Eot.

yesterday i got a team with a squad of 5 players, they all had the FV215b (183), i think it should not be allowed

 

I don't think splitting the playerbase under most circumstances is a good idea. It will just break things further. I'm also not a fan of blanket approaches like this, that are poorly thought out and then set in stone. They tend to have far broader  consequences than the limited set of irresponsible behaviours they were trying to prevent.

In my experience I see far more Fun platoons than Doom Platoons. I think most players platoon for fun and to improve their gaming experience, than to improve their gaming performance. I think the same is true of people playing the same or similar tanks - they are doing it to play together rather than to bring a larger number of OP tanks together. There are obvious exceptions, but I think they are the minority.

This is the sad reality.

Unfortunately, a lot of good players are not upset that the game is unfair, unsportsmanlike at the moment.  Many of them think they are playing very well but the truth is that they are only taking advantage of a bad system to the detriment of others.  Apparently they don't want a fair game.

And the bigger problem is that WG doesn't want fair game.

yea, they’re pretty rare now. 
 

I don’t have any problems with platoons except arty platoons.

So let me make sure I understand this....

 

 

Those opposed to platoons want an ONLINE MULTIPLAYER VIDEO GAME ON PLATFORMS GEARED TOWARDS SOCIAL INTERACTION to eradicate the option for friends to play together because you "feel" that it's unfair. 

 

Did I get that right?

Are there other games that prevent friends from pairing up against the general player population?

 

My experience is fairly limited, as I tend to really only play 1 or 2 games at a time, and when I find something I like, I stick with it thru the life cycle.

 

Gears of War in various titles. Battlefield in various iterations. WoWs PC. All of these allow friends to pair up and play in the general player population.
