It should be increased to 7. Hear me out.


Your normal way to play is not in jeopardy. 


An alternate “Wild” queue where game balance and team composition are mostly thrown out the window. The matchmaker will still try to match you to similar tiered tanks unless you and a few buddies are tier 8 and one is only tier 5. Then it will match you with other “sub-optimal” platoons. And your tier 8 could be up against tier 10.


Silly of you to want to carry that little tier 5. But that’s your decision. And you’re opening yourself up to the Wild West.


If you wanted to be matched solely with similar tiers you would build your platoon as such. You and your tier 8 buddies would go down to tier 5 to play with your friend that just recently joined the World of Tanks. Or you’d just tell him to hurry up. Or he would just buy a higher tier tank. You have options to play as you choose.


The Wild queue would be the catch all for the imbalanced teams and tanks. Your collectors tanks and old tanks that are no longer available would have a happy home in the Wild queue. Fun would trump stats and WN8 in the Wild queue. You could even play crazy game modes. Mad games and soccer matches would be sprinkled in. You could even play solo in the Wild queue, you masochist!


We could limit the “Normal” queue to tanks and normal game modes that were deemed balanced. Stats would be tracked here as usual. Platoon size would still be limited to 2. And if you never played in the Wild queue you’d be normal and happy. Poor, poor normals.


The matchmaker needs a break, so it hired it’s underachieving nephew.


It would be a lawless and crazy land. But it would be our lawless crazy land, together. We, crazy, tanker misfits.

To add:

Just make the normal queue the Rated queue. Change leaderboards to focus on the different tiers, and give awards each season accordingly. If all I want is to play my KV-1S I would only care about my tier 6 heavy tank ranking. Or, I could try to be top of the league in multiple tiers and classes! If stats and competition are your thing, the normal queue is for you!

So of course there’d be separate leaderboards for each class. My SU100Y could be top of the tier 6 TD leaderboard! And my Luchs could be climbing the tier 4 Light leaderboard! And they’d receive awards and prizes based on their achievement.

These stats are already tracked. We might as well make them more prevalent and award those that work hard to be the best in their favorite tank.

We want to play in larger groups. Make it work somehow, even if it’s not balanced.

Queue times are already too long as it is.


Stats / ratings would get rigged even more than they already are.

The idea of larger platoon size has been officially flatly rejected.
