Dear WG,

 

I have been playing for over 3 years and recently the quality of teams and teamwork has been falling faster than autumn leaves. Being in a platoon can give a slight advantage since you usually have 1 teammember you can count on to do the right thing.

 

But a platoon can now only consist of 2 people. We have noticed that a high number off games played result in terrible team build up, so as a suggestion to a new update i would like you to consider extending the possible amount of members to enter into a platoon.

 

Some of us simply dont have the time to participate in tournaments but would love to play together with several clan members. And sometimes we just prefer to have that extra teammember to help out in the everlasting struggle to get better stats or make a grind a bit easier. 

 

I therefor ask you if it is possible to allow a platoon to consist of 3 members instead of 2.

 

Regards,

 

Nick a.k.a. Turret1984

That would be awesome creating your own teams in that way! Fighting battles to other clans no camping light tanks ! 

It's all about teamwork!

You do realise the enemy team will also have the benefit of having bigger organized platoons, which will work against your win rate?

Having platoons of 3 people would give too much influence on the battle and probably result in even more steamrolls, either because the platoon consists of super unicums who decimate the enemy team or because the platoon consists of complete donkies who drag your team down. Being able to platoon 2 out of 7 team members already has a bigger impact than WoT PC's platoon size limit of 3 out of 15 team members.

This ^^

 

Imagine a three-person platoon of WR 65%'ers on one team. Given the average (very low) quality of random players such a team will be extremely hard to beat. The proposition of having larger platoons has been made a number of times before, and the idea has never been popular for this very reason.

 

For a casual slightly-above-average player such as myself who rarely platoon I think such a change would take out a huge bit of the fun in the game. Getting steam-rolled on a regular basis by three-toons of unicums is not fun. I can handle the occassional two-toon of unicums on reds (sometimes my teams even manage to defeat them), but three-toons would tip that balance too far.


Attention WG: Please stop fixing stuff that is not broken - Return the Centurion 7/1 and FV4202 to the state they were prior to update 4.0.

Thanks, but no thanks. For the reasons mentioned above. 

RANDOM == FAIR. I do not want to carry Noobs more than I have to.

 I do know that the way i express myself to some, if not most, people sound a bit too...aggressive? salty? rude?... but this is the way i speak and the way my thought train rolls...so...yeah...i'm not trying to insult anyone or pick up any fights.

For the reasons mentioned above, WG said probably that they will never introduce this kind of platoon

Just imagine the havoc if you get 2 sets of 3 tank toons!!!

Pity the single solo tank on each side!!!.

 

Or even one side with a 3 tank toon and the other with 2 x 2 tank toons!!!

Again imagine the complaints!!!

 

Never should happen, but knowing that WG do implement utterly poorly thought out strategies.........!

How about a sit-n-go tournament mode instead? You could collect your own team of 7 and play against enemy 7-teams.

 Absolutely true. 

 

One of the times I really feel good is when I have had a very hard fought battle against a good team and check the opposing teams statistics to find that we beat a Unicom platoon.  That is sweet Revenge for all the times they (Unicom platoons) have destroyed my teams without even being seriously hit.

Will be nice to have something like rating battles but for platoons where you can play 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3, 4 vs 4, etc. In this way you can make an ad hoc team and just enjoy the game instead to wait in a training room for others or other team to join.

Some people already manage an uncontested  winrate of 80% over 40.000 battles 

now assemblé three of them, and how are you going to win against them ?

I like my chances of winning to remain in the realm of random and not of 0 or 100% certainty,


Read my guides there

I want just that, and replay files.

I would like this idea aha, 3 pro players which is almost half of your own team.

 

But not going to happen


Wg please consider my ideas.     Clan Leader of [XL] EXCEL

* Serial AFKers are banned permanently (Not accidental AFKers). * 3 way matchmaking toggle (Encounter only, Supremacy only or Random). * When the game loads the map, it shows the same side for both teams, show the map angle from each teams spawn locations rather then guess. Buff to STRV and Su-122-44 in aim time somehow * Implement a in a "Platoon" & in a "Match" indicator (we also will be needing an "unavailable" indicator for our solo friends and in a "t.room" indicator in our friends list) * WR & Battle count (Career and Tank stats) next to clan tag for the green team (There is plenty of space).

that would actually be a good idea. Just go into voice with 6 others and go into sort of a “team queue” where others can queue up too.

there's only one balance WG cares about

its their bank account balance

Random MM is already building OP teams against us mortals with 0-7 results so it can't be any worst. Go for it, let people platoon with other 6 players but for rest of us add a switch to disable platoons in their game.

We will need to first off increase the number of players in each team then. 3 elite players in one team with high chemistry would just be total nightmare for the opponents. 

2014= 52% noobs

2015= 75% noobs

2016= 90% noobs

2017= :facepalm:

If you need to platoon with more guys and fight against other team the training room gives you this opportunity.
It would imbalance current game even more so I say no to this idea.
