Hey All......anyone out there from 2 years ago remember me?

sgt. flint : (24 April 2017 - 11:39 PM)

just started playing WOT again and looking for a clan or group

bergsteiger : (25 April 2017 - 08:31 AM)

Crazy night. Got all my wins AFTER I quit tooning. Very unusual.

The_Dad : (25 April 2017 - 08:36 AM)

similar experience last night... all my wins were BEFORE I started platooning

NeoGP : (25 April 2017 - 10:25 AM)

Hey Flint!

With new mm, having good players at the top of the list seems to make a huge difference. And platooning seems to almost always put you at bottom of the list. So perhaps it makes sense that you good players are winning when playing solo.

Archaic : (25 April 2017 - 11:14 PM)

Yes, platoons seem to be pretty gimped with 3-5-7

sgt. flint : (26 April 2017 - 02:12 AM)

Hey Neo, yes i remember you. any others from the old crew still running?

NeoGP : (26 April 2017 - 10:17 AM)

not sure man..I haven't played wot in 2+ years, alot of changes throughout the 5 clans

SGrant7 : (26 April 2017 - 12:05 PM)

Haven't been on much in the last few days, but are 2 man platoons fairing much better?

bergsteiger : (26 April 2017 - 02:38 PM)

Platooning doesn't seem as big of an issue as Tier 8s. Don't think I've had a single game that I was top tier in an VIII

I've done two rooms in my home with bamboo and it worked great, Just remember to leave that space for swelling of flooring. Can't really add anything to what has already been said.

The new laminate flooring "No nails" is a big change in flooring and it looks beautiful

Unless you are playing tier X, it looks like the 3-5-7 MM will force platoons to be bottom tier in every game.

I hope this isn't a real emergency, I only brought one bottle of rum.

Well, we were bottom tier 24/24.  That includes a few games with 15 in same tier where we were also top tier, but it appears MM is sorting upper tiers before assigning platoons.

 

I can kind of see how this got missed, everybody on test plays Tier X and hardly ever platoons.

I think the other side of this is that 3 tank T10 'toons can get some pretty good MM.

I've noticed this as well, easily most of the time, but not quite always.I did see the first match I can remember where all tanks were of the same tier, though.

Unless you are playing tier X, it looks like the 3-5-7 MM will force platoons to be bottom tier in every game.  

 

You should get slotted frequently enough at the middle spot.This was an argument towards 3-7-5 but it mostly gets ignored. 

 

2x platoons should still get their fair share.3x platoons however will struggle in the new MM.

2 nights running now the only time any 3 man platoon that I was in was "top tier" was when it was a single tier battle (including tier X). We were bottom tier every time (at least it seemed that way). 2 Man platoons I got top tier once last night with Nathan and it was a 5/10 match maker. Running solo MM works just fine.  This is an issue. Platooning is the main reason why I still play this game.
