Commanders,
 
Would you like to play another kind of battles other than randoms?
We proudly present: PLATOON MADNESS!
 

Platoon Madness is for ambitious players and clans. If you would liketo join a battle together with good players in both teams, Platoon Madness provides it for you. Platoon Madness means less noobs and more good players in battle.

How does it work?

Follow the link getmad.wotbfanzone.eu. Here you will see a countdown. The countdown starts every eight minutes (max. 7 mins battle time, 1 min. time to breathe and select tanks). Team up with a friend or a clan member for platooning and simultaneously press the battle button if the counter displays "MOVE OUT!". Chancesare very high that you'll start in the same battle with other players that, like you, followed the Platoon Madness countdown.

The procedure of how Platoon Madness works is well known by clan- or inter-clan-events worked by moderated countdown. With Platoon Madness you will have the countdown seven days a week, twenty four hours a day.

Platoon Madness is a community project made by World of Tanks Blitz Fanzone (wotbfanzone.eu). By players, for players. So using the countdown depends on your fair play. We ask you to follow some easy rules:

 

  • Press button simultaneously when "MOVE OUT!" is displayed on screen.
  • Preferably, drive in a platoon. So the chances to get better team mates and opponents rise.

 

Important: The page reloads every minute so that the counter doesn't stop the synchronization.

Tell us about your experiences, wishes and problems with Platoon Madness in the discussion thread on the Fanzone Community (click here) or in this thread. The Fanzone will enhance the function step by step to increase your gaming fun.

Mobilize!

 


 

BETA v1.3.1 is now online:

I agree, hopefully during the peaks in the evening we could get lots of people on almost like an EU ICE. Maybe add a chat where people to say what tiers players are trying and also a player counter so people know if there is no one during the day, they can just come back later. Anyway great idea mate, hopefully we can get it running on a large scale.:)

Thanks for the feedback.

 

Yep im planning to insert buttons for every tier and display how many peoples are playing on Platoon Madness in specific tier. BETA 1.3 will come in the next few weeks with the buttons.

 

A chat, hmmm... thats a great idea for the Platoon Madness start page. :) Maybe for 1.4 or later. I will try that^^

 

Stay tuned for this event. I hope we can improve the gameplay a bit.:justwait:

Excellent stuff. I'll post up the link on Empros forum too.

 

We have used an online clock before, when not using Teamspeak. Communicate via in game chat, to agree upon a time. When the clock hit that time, we pressed battle. Worked well in syncing and this takes it up a notch. 

 

Cheers, martindogger

I wonder if I ended up in a battle with some players using this.

4 from the same clan (IUC I think), but none of them tooning plus two PF guys and then me and my toon mate who missed out on our own countdown

I tested it now and for 1.3 i will add an chat on the Platoon Madness start page. But the chat will be only for registered users.

 

Im not sure how i insert the buttons for every tier. What you think, countdown in a popup window or on a separate page? :)

You've already noticed, Platoon Madness is no longer active. The development of this event costs too much time and was not often used. This was confirmed by the page views of the event. With an average usage of 18 users per week Platoon Madness will no longer being developed. Thanks to all who have supported and promoted this idea.

 

We plan some other events in future. Stay tuned ;)
