Ok guys, just hear me out. We need 3 player platoons. I know what you are thinking... “Why on earth would we need that? 3 KV-2s on one team? No thanks!” What if more than 2 of the same tank was prohibited? Maybe even only 2 heavies in one platoon? I think it would be a great addition to the game. If you think 3 player platoons are too small for a 7 player team, well, why not bigger teams? Maybe 10 player teams? It’s larger than it is now yet smaller than PC World of Tanks 15 players. What do you guys think? Thanks for reading! :)

It's a stupid idea that has been brought up way too many times.

Been brought up a lot. Check the link. There is also some players in clans and on discord that count to 3 and all three click the same time to the battle. You would be surprised how many times that works. Sometimes 1 might end up on the other team but mostly it works. They don't do platoons just click together. Really tough to beat them. Might be illegal I don't know. Good luck with your quest.

If it’s FUN to play with 3 players then why are so many people against 3 player platoons? So far I have not seen any good reasons NOT to put it in.

Well if 3 unicoms platoon together against you you might as well just go afk especially so if on the green team it will be you and your other 40% friends platooning.

2 man platoons already unbalance battles, a 3 man platoon would destroy battles and the game. Controlling 30% of a team with 2 man platoon already gives a huge advantage, even a 2 man 50% platoon will win 60-70%. Controlling almost half the team would completely destroy battles with uneven wr toons and would be completely ruin the experience for the single players.

Yeah I would be for it. But all these blow hards will try to shut it down. Don't listen to the negative Nancy's. They forget people like to play with a group of friends and would allow for more people to have fun at the game and maybe stay long enough to increase the player base. But once again these blow hards only think of them selves. I say go for 3 man platoons at least. I see nothing wrong with it. Tired of hearing these old guys talk about how unbalanced it would be. I don't give a F. its about having fun with your friends.

If your fun is the idea of being eliminated by a coordinated attack from 3 players in the first minute of the game, why not just watch youtube instead.

It was a different way of pointing out that there are at least a hundred topics on it ( and the forum does not like searching for " 3 " ).

Below is a quick selection: 

 

3 man platoons or/clan wars in blitz

Platoons bigger?

3 people platoons

Platoon 3 Persons.

I wish we could have more than two people in a platoon.

Ideas for three man platoon

Platoons of 3 or 4 tanks

three-person platoons

Larger Platoons

3 Man Platoons

New platoon concepts

3 Players Platoon. When?

So, bigger platoons? Why not?

increase size of the platoon

3 in a platoon?

 

etc 


There is not much of a point of rehashing anything about it.

 

Established players and Wargaming all have the same proper conclusion that it would be game breaking and leading to more complaints. In the same way that it does on warships blitz, where you can have a three man unicum team on red and you have zip nada, steamroll loss. Next.

The math is very simple. Some people don't get it, it happens, that's OK, ... no reason to call other people blow hards, old guys, ...  

You may not care, but other people do, and at least we're backed up by WG, they share the same opinion that it is game breaking.

If you want evidence of how game breaking it is. Try some world of warships blitz and face some of the unicum guys in three man platoons.  While you have no platoon or a potato duo. Note, some of those guys run with 80-90% WR per session. So, you try to grind and play like normal, get whacked without a chance every few games and then come back and talk about how much fun it is or how you still don't give a F. 

 

If you want to have fun with your friends, go in a training room with 14 people, do public count down events with large clans, do some tournaments, play competitively ... see how you stack up.
