If you’re in need of a way to ensure you never roll alone, the answer is simple: Platoons.

i love platoons and all, but the matchmaking gets really screwed up. it will make a match were it is 5v2 when there is only 1 platoon. it gets frustrating(except if you have the advantage) but still not impossible to win lol. thats how i found one of my friends. but still, it would be nice if you would tweak it a bit. thanks:)
Ex: it was 7 tier 9s and 10s vesus 2 chaffees

The Platoon concept works if the rest of your platoon are equal  or 1 tier variance from you.  I does not help the team to have tier 1 and 2's in tier 5 and up games. Plus your fiends will last a bit longer in the match.

i don't like going more than 2 ranks up from lowest tank in group. but  tier v chaffee can put you in tier x match

This may have been answered elsewhere but I'm too lazy to look...

If we can get 3 in a platoon - why not 5 or a full 15?  I easily have 15+ friends on xBox that play WOT.  How freaking awesome would it be to have all 15 in one battle??!!!!?  (Or would that be considered an unfair advantage if the other team wasn't platooned?)

Keep up the great work, WG!!

it would be considered unfair as the people on the other team may not be communicating, which would give you the advantage of having better teamwork, which we all know is what wins games.

Platoons should be at least 5 man.  3 man platoons are just to small........

We see platoons, but what about the awesomeness of Tank Companies? I'd like to see some full-on Chaffee/Luchs/Leopard platoons roaming around obliterating full teams of everything else!

well unless you play same tier against same tier...platoon would be great idea..see its all about the tiers fighting same tier is fair gameing..at moment in cpu its so unfair..thats why I quit playing cpu WOT..mixing tiers only benefits the higher tier..its realy unfair to the lower tier..i realy hope xbox WOT don't do the same thing as cpu mixing high tier in with lower tier when launch come around...but I think im dreaming somehow..because xbox is doing it now in the beta...so please make it possible to withdraw from game play with tank as you will not win against a higher tier tank...and it don't matter where you shoot the higher tier tank..and don't forget..higher tier just one shot you dead..i realy like this game..so please don't mix tiers..thank you.

to be even more pedantic

In the British Army the smallest group of tanks is a Troop, which is 4 Tanks, next you move up to a squadron which is made up of 4 Troops, next up is a regiment which is made up of three tank suqadrons plus a HQ Squadron and a support Squadron.

Americans and Germans might be different but certainly gives us grounds to ask for 4 in a 'Platoon'

There should be some kind of cap of how far in tiers the difference can be between the tanks in your platoon. I'm tired of going up against tanks like 3+ tiers higher than me because they have a low tier tank in their platoon.

yep I know how that feels....when your trying to lvl up a tank...I played WOT for 2 years on CPU...I got sick of going into battle with tier5 and playing tier8..what I use to do on CPU is suicide every time when im in match with 2 tiers above my tier..then it started happening more and more till I had enough...so please don't do the same thing what CPU WOT is doing....because it is realy unfair to the lower tier...or at least let us leave battle with tank and not get locked in like CPU. thank you
