Hello tankers!

 

Jeff Gregg (WoTConsole's Lead Game Designer) mentioned in his latest Developer Insight video, of current internal conversations regarding clan and platoon rewards.  

 

Clans and Platoons are an essential part of World of Tanks Mercenaries.  That said, we also want to hear from you and find out what your thoughts or ideas are in regards to Clan and platoon rewards.  

 

Please share your feedback or any ideas you have in mind.  

 

Thanks!

I feel that clans and platoons are, as  you said, an integral part of WoTC and as such, should be allowed bonuses for participating. Who knows...such a thing may promote more teamwork which teams have been lacking for awhile now.

 

But of course, that's merely my opinion and may not be shared by all!

 

As for rewards, I'll have to ponder that further before I can make suggestions.

Does anybody have a link to the developer insight video or is that posted on one of the subforums? Would like to know what WarGaming has planned really before I give any feedback to get an idea of what exactly is meant by clan and platoon rewards.

I like the idea, if platoon carries the battle, rewards should be more (Xp for example).

More reasons to be part of a clan would be very nice, as it is the only reason to be in a clan is to have the tag that doesn't do much. Being in a big clan brings a target on some players, that's why I like my small clans.

I don't know if encouraging platoon in the game is a good idea, as it messes up with MM, but let's say that what was written in the 4.13 article is true, and platoon MM will be improved, i would suggest a 10% xp and credit fixed bonus to all clan members, and for platoons, the platoon leader will have the bonus control, either xp or credit, and both in the same time with half the value, each player in the platoon would give a 5% bonus, i.e.: 3 players platoon, with commander selected both xp and credit bonus = 7,5% on xp and credit to every player in every match., but some people like to group to grind tanks, and then, the xp bonus would be better, or also to grind credits, so credit option would be better, this would make me so more inclined to accept platoon invites lol

The issue is less with platoons and more with the current matchmaking not having set parameters on tanks in game. There is a 3 arty per team limit so it's entirely possible to have similar limits with top tier tanks. I can see the issues with 3/5/7 but I see a lot more issues with what we have where there's no limit and matches all too often end up with 7 top tier tanks, 5 mid tier, 3 bottom tier to a team. Sometimes even less bottom tiers resulting in even less fun matches for those few tanks that are often knocked out first as the enemy has a much easier target.

A couple of things which I've raised previously are:

 

1.  Permanent Crew XP bonus Multiplier

 

Increases with size of Platoon

x2 - 2 man

x3 - 3 man

x4 - 4 man

x5 - 5 man

 

Make it a Clan bonus, must be in a Clan to activate.

 

2.  A Monthly Clan Ladder Competition

 

Each month Clans vie to be in top 3 places in multiplayer games with a Monthly or Quarterly reward for the top 3 Clans.  Each month the objective changes from:

a.  Total base XP

b.  Total damage

c.  Total destroyed vehicles

etc

 

Total Damage done by the Clan divided by the number of Clan members who participated in that month equals Clans Total.  That way all Clans are playing on a level playing field.

 

Have a Clan Ladder tab in garage so everyone can see how each Clan has performed in the previous month.

 

Only Clan members who played during month would be entitled to rewards if their Clan Ranked in top positions.

I'm honestly not sure platoons need any extra bonus or incentive.  Platoons of good players have a built in XP bonus simply because they win more games than when playing solo.  If an extra bonus is applied, I would recommend only a small one - perhaps 10% extra silver or xp.

 

As for clans, some unique opportunities exist to reward clans.  I suggest focusing on activity and longevity of clans as opposed to how good their players are.  An ability focused reward will encourage the agglomeration of the best players into a few large 'elite' clans.  To encourage clan activity and overall game participation without driving all the best players into select 'elite' clans I would reward clans that have long term active players of all ability levels.

For example:
a. If a clan has at least 10 active members over a period of a year (active defined as playing at least 100 battles per month) then reward all active members of the clan with some vouchers.

b. If a clan has at least 20 active members over a period of at least two years then reward the clan with a custom all season camo available only to active clan members who remain with that clan.
c. If a clan has at least 30 active members over a period of at least three years then reward the clan with a custom emblem, inscription or flag of their design (WG stipulates image size/format and clan leader submits it for WG approval to ensure it's not vulgar or offensive and then recreates it in the game) that is available only to active clan members who remain with that clan.

 

You get the idea.  Give the players who invest in the game community something to show their esprit de corps.

Being able to use clan logos in game on custom flags would be quite fun. I understand this can take some time to be implemented but it would be a unique customisation that I'm sure people would enjoy. Clan  leaders could submit the logo to WGCB for review then have it available to all clan members as long as they're active in the clan.

 

If you're out with your 5 man platoon and your clan/platoon alone destroy all members of the opposing 5 man platoon, how about an award for that. So for this a section on your clans portal stats page with all the "dogtags" of 5 man platoons your clan has killed that you were a part of. Kind of like collecting players tags in other FPS games.

On the flip side if you single handedly kill all members of a platoon when you're playing solo there should be a battle hero medal for this.

 

Ranked Battles should allow for 7 man platoons, this would help to free up standard multiplayer of platoons and give players an incentive to try and get together for it. If they like the feel of it, it may make them try the competitive side that is vastly under represented.

Now a lot of people will complain platoons in ranked isn't fair, to this I say you are technically all in a platoon for every game, so turn the mic on and communicate then the platoons don't an advantage.

 

I'll certainly be able to think of more as I'm typing this before work.

Yeah this ^^^^

 

Some sort of point system. Monthly or every 3 months. Perhaps base XP system. Doesn't need to be in a platoon. As long as you're a member of a clan. You're xp gettings added to the points system. So solo members are contributing...

I would suggest

1. Clan Logos on tanks
2. a possibility that clans with more than X active members can use the team training room for free (CW trainings)
3. Clan ranked (7v7 ranked events in where clans can compete against each other)
4. clan OP's for special camouflage etc

I would love something like strongholds or the clan wars campaign on pc with similar rewards, but even clan camouflage and emblems would be greatly appreciated.

Something like clan ranked battles that could only be entered with a full platoon of seven, or whatever the team limit would be, would be great aswell, that would be similar to strongholds I guess. 
 

Incentives to participate could be those mentioned camouflages and emblems or maybe something like the 3D styles on pc. I’d also hope for exclusive tanks or contracts or missions that would require actual skill at the game with rewards scaling with the difficulty.

Dislike the first idea because it divides out way too much crew XP over a night of platooning in a five man platoon.  The better players are already in clans and you're just making people with great crews that much better than the newer players.  Generally I disfavor slanting power too much in favor of those who are already more experienced and have much better crews.

 

Dislike the second idea because it means a clan with two super unis can win every single month.  

 

Just keep it at a simple x2 Bonus for carrying in a platoon regardless of the number of members.  We don't need to encourage five man platoons of Panzer V/IVs or Absolutions etc with a seductive x5 Bonus.  

 

For clans, just go by which clans score the highest in ranked battles every month and divide it into classes for clans under 10 members, clans between 11 - 30 members, and clans over 30 members.  Change the awards up between things like silver, gold, a discount on a tank or like a tier VI premium and if they already have it just that amount of gold, a bunch of XP or silver boosts, etc.

I think 2 & 4 would definitely be doable by WG.

 

I would love to see 3 implemented and think Ranked Battles could be the ultimate home for Clan Competition in WoTC.  WG did try a Clan Competition in Ranked late last year but there were some issues and it didn't get off the ground.  

 

Allowing 2 or 3 man Platoons in Ranked and implementing a system to ensure Clans get good rewards for strong tactical play (and penalties for stupid play) would make Ranked very interesting for a Clan Comp.

So I purposely scrolled past all the previous posts and suggestions so I could just jot down my own ideas without influence.  There’s several things I would like to see become available for Clans and/or Platoons.

1) Shared resources/Depot.  So Clan members can share Consumables and Silver.  It would be a great way for Clans to help out fellow members and would also help those of use who have massive stockpiles of unused consumables.
2) Clan-Only events and Ops with exclusive(not sold to the public 6mos later) rewards.
3) XP/Silver bonuses for platooning.  It could be a base 5-25% all the time and increase for promotions.
4) Clan name customizations.  This can be a reward item for clan-specific events so that only the winners can have their accounts directly invoiced with them(like how you give out the Wargaming Approved emblems.

That’s all I got for now.

Hey WG, this idea sounds interesting!

 

Can we trial a 7 man Platoon in Ranked with teams only able to go in with the full Platoon?  Maybe trial it and see what people think
