There are a few exceptions but overall Tier VIII should not be in Tier X games. They are purely outmatched and just end up not being able to do much.

The game used to be tier +/-2, and was changed to +/-1 quite some time ago (I forget exactly when and what patch that occurred in).

 

Tier 8 can only meet 10 if there is a tier 8/9 failtoon.

I don't think it would work now.  MM and the teams are so bad I think it would be an utter disaster.

Yeah allowing the platoons is what makes it difficult and we have no control over it when they are on our team.

if you have on your team enemy also has on theirs so its balanced :)
also if they remove that option everyone will spam 8/9 fail toon :)

Re fail toons.  I saw one a few months ago and made an idiot of myself (as it turned out) commenting on it during the battle countdown.  That -2 tier player was better than every other player, green and red.  Of course, they don't always go like that.

Don't cry. Just fly!

I've seen 2 or 3 tier 7/8 failtoons in tier 8/9 games in the last week alone all of which the toon comprised of players with <1k battles.

For sake of the "Old Good Days", shall we do some fail-tooning, Donut?

 

And what would be the best tier VIII tanks for fail-tooning?

 

- Heavies: T32, T34, Tiger II,

- TDs: ISU, Borsig, T28 Def, T28 proto

- Meds: T-44, Progetto, P44

 

What else?

While having the advantage in a tier viii match, It's only fair that a 8/9 platoon also encounters tier x once in a while.

Yesterday I had a fail toon match up where the tier was that of the top tier fail toon : 7-8 platoon in a 7-8 game.

I thought that +/-2 was the rule when fail tooning. Apparently not.

Don’t forget for a tier 7/8 fail toon you really should choose the Anni!

Thats where it really belongs!

It was a Smasher / Chrysler platoon. Not bad either.

Fail-toons are fun, I do them sometimes if I can persuade my toon mate..

OP, is there anything you won’t write a complaining post about?

Seriously, how many times does this happen?  I’ve done it 2 or 3 times in a 8/9 failtoon in 40k battles on 2 accounts, and other than those times seen no more than a handful altho someone else has posted seeing them more offen..

Maybe they’re on the increase because of the current Muppets meta but it’s balanced, both teams get one so no big deal IMHO...

The benefits of being in a fail toon easily outweigh the negatives. If you manage to kill a vehicle that is two tiers above you the amount of  EXP you get is amazing.

Yes you are a at a large disadvantage but still if you play it safely and your team isn't full of muppets you will make it through.
