Please Prevent Disparate Tier Platoons

Dear Team,

 

Please, please, please implement match making so that platoons of more than one tier apart cannot enter battle.

 

We have always been told, time and time again, that MM adjusts the teams to compensate for lower tiers in the mix.

 

Here's proof that it doesn't:

Noob%20Platoon.jpg

Not only is my team stuck with a [redacted] platoon but we ARE 7 TIER POINTS DOWN AS WELL!!!!!!!!!! :angry::angry::angry::angry:

 

Yes, I did a naughty on one of the members of said platoon. The in game system penalized me accordingly & appropriately.

 

Yes, I know this game is all about fun and not to be taken too seriously.

 

A Ferris Wheel is all about fun as well. However, if one of your fellow passengers above, voluntarily flings poo down on you, because "that's how they enjoy a Ferris Wheel", it infringes on your rights to enjoy the game.

 

Please  correct this.

 

Regards,

 

Krieg

You sunk the Minekaze? that thing could play at tier 10 (well the old Minekaze).

You may want to see someone about your anger management :P

 


 

On an other note: Kongo class ships battled on well into the war and by then had around 100x 25mm AA. Many other ships too Independence class (1943/44) has planes on it that had been out of service for years. would love to see ships get their full upgrades and not be nurfed by the tier system (which works for tanks and planes).

At the start I politely told them that their platoon strategy (with a bit of sarcasm, but no profanity) was wrong & why. They responded with insults which led to my poor decision making in responding with salvos to words. Wouldn't do that again now, but in that instance I was on a big losing streak and couldn't help myself. :unsure:

 

 

EDIT: My "bit of sarcasm" would be entirely appropriate language for the forums.........

I can't talk been known to say the wrong thing after a bad run myself. :angry:

Wish WG would not force this made-up tier difference just for the sake of a tier difference when a lot of the mid level ships were still very useful and not to out-dated by wars-end.

With planes and tanks there was a massive difference from say 1941 tank/plane compared to 1942 tank/plane, this was not as noticeable with ships and their room to upgrade.

Not saying there should be no difference, just believe it should be smaller.

Ohh man, I remember I have a match at tier 6 where in my side there are a division have tier 6, 3 and 1 ship :fishpalm:, we simply type ".........." in chat because we got rekt in less than 7 minutes. Probably the fastest in-game time battle I have ever been. I think they just want to trolling around.:sceptic:

Totally agree with you that this needs fixing.

It's akin to sending archers into battle against machine-gunners.

As much as I tend to agree with the sentiment, WG stated long ago (via SerB) that they would not implement any restrictions on platoons for tanks.  I can't see them changing the policy for WoWS :(

Just while we are on the subject, the tier 1 Hermelin would make a great close escort for the tier 4 Langley or Hosho, with no captains perks she has an AA rating of 23 and her 128mm guns are DP with a AA range of 5kms, and god help any IJN DD that comes close, her 15 rounds a minute fire will mow them down.

Just saying :amazed:

Well, at the very least, no one can argue that MM was not broken in the OP. It certainly didn't account for the noob platoon.

Remember, Umikaze can do in Tier X match, :teethhappy:

 

I saw Pz1C humiliating WT E100 before :D:D:D

 

Anyways by allowing this kind of Division/Platoon to be form WG compromised thier MM system, because they wont be able to balance the soft stats of lower tier (concealment, reload time etc.) due to the tier gap like those old days that Minekaze can kill Yamato will rapid fire torpedoes.

 

But Developer decision as always :P

With this policy at hand, I suggest if you encounter this kind of division group in battle. Tell/encourage them to play same tier game & advise them not ruin the battle balance.

Best experience for them is to hear will be the rants from teammates or let them experience the bad battles because of their wrong line ups.

just had a divi, T3 BB with T6 CA in a T7 game, since they can limit how many CV's why can they not put in a check on the tiers of ships to make sure each ship is within 2 tiers of each other. It is just plain annoying when this happens, another option is the ship that is in the wrong match (e.g T3 BB for me) is simply able to be TK's straight out of the gate with no consequences, people would learn very quickly that being in a div like that will not be fun.

 

(on a side note: to the team I was in this match with, my apologies but I just pointed my bow at the enemy and charged in guns blazing so I could take another ship out in a more balanced game)
