I appreciate your service Dustin!


I enjoy playing and talking with buddies all the time.  However, adding larger toons would lead to even more uneven gameplay, simply put.  (Don't argue against that... it's a fact.)   Extremely uneven gameplay kills games... Sad to say, I've seen it happen.  :(   So no, it's not a good idea to have larger toons.  (And no, that isn't a negative opinion/outlook... it's the truth and the truth isn't always something we want to hear.)


Now what you want is to play more battles with friends so that you can have effective communication.  There are other solutions for you.


1.  Recently on my stream me and my clan mates/friends have been doing a countdown and hitting the battle button at the same time.  It's a great way to get into the same battle, sometimes on the same team, sometimes on the enemy team.  But it makes the game all-the-more fun.


2.  Also it costs very little to run tanks in training rooms, especially low tier tanks.  So whenever you want to, you can jump in a training room with friends and play together.


I would also like to point out that there are very few games where your team won't communicate or listen to communication.  Sure it happens, but it's not nearly as bad a problem as the community makes it out to be.  If you're team isn't listening right away, don't give up on convincing them.  Sometimes people may disagree with your strategy or call out something different before you say anything... you know your w/r and skill.  You have to decide/figure out, should I continue to convince my team to do what I say or follow the other guys strategy.  (Try to memorize good clans and players, find out who is better than you and learn when to follow someone else's strategy.)



(Oh also... tier mm only changes by 1.  Unless it's failplatooned, a tier 3 will never see a tier 5.  When in platoons, don't platoon with a tank a tier higher or lower.  Platoon with same-tier tanks.)

well with the being in a platoon of same tier being 4 I have seen 7s 8s and a 10 before but support doesn't really care of its players. and my honest opinion which doesn't count for much being a vet against civilians in a game of war is that if we cant have a bigger platoon then they should work on the research for the tanks cause as they said they told me and a few others that there goal is to make it more realistic yet their research on said tanks are lacking skill example all the tank destroyers are lacking their firepower, the heavy's are the powerhouse all around which is incorrect, and the light tanks have to high of firepower for being a scout tank. if there hitting as hard or harder than a heavy or destroyer than there move time should be cut by 75% minimum, the heavy's should either have be dropped a few notches in firepower but the mediums is ok to a extent where there at, the lights are scouts high speed very low firepower, medium tank has moderate speed and adequate firepower the heavys should have great all around armor and a punch of firepower, but the destroyers are nerfed, there firepower should be double the heavy minium and equal or more armor in the front, the sides are more of the mediums and the rear is more towards the light if any. basicly saying lights are a 9mm, mediums are 5.56-7.62, heavys 44mag-50mag, destroyers 908cal or close, and armor wise lights being sheet steel cause there speed, mediums 1-3 in steel plating, heavys 6-10 steel plating, and destroyers front of 7-12 steel plating and as earlier in this post figure the math, the lights are scouts, mediums are ur basic tank, heavys are more of the upperclass for medium to close combat and the destroyers are the sniper that pack a big punch for what there designed and built for...

I advocate for three man toons, I could three man with Bot and Hunter from my clan, which would be amazing for my game, since we all have a huge laugh when we dog fight and yolo over the same damage.
I haven't found a good signature, and this is probably a placeholder. But I like anime and sleep, and unlike most people, I can shoot tanks in any game mode reasonably well.

I have read a few posts against the increase of size but here is some food for thought. instead of only able to communicate with one other it would be better to communicate with the whole team. here I lay some points. communication is the key 1st and for most, but then coordination,  I mean look say I and ur single team mate runs in to most the other side yes u may get a few lucky shots and one destroyed but that one down and u and ur platoon mate down ur team is injured more then the enemy, if the size of the platoon was allowed to be the size of the whole team then there would be more communication, I would rather sit here and be able to talk to my team mates over typing info that may be viable to the team than try to type it then become destroyed for one coming up on my rear, yes the f keys are there but doesn't get the point across and it alone is lack of communication which is lack of team work,, one question to think about and I know others have seen it, where ur team ur playing with ends up like scattered roaches and being squashed by the enemy team fast, well one way for people to have a challenge if they say this game isn't challenging enough is for them to be with a whole team of randoms vs a whole team coordinated and the goal is win of course I would say statistics would be very low if any at all, and then there are the people that post ( no team, no teamwork, ect) in both the forum and game chat well if we were allowed to fill the 7 slots of out team with our platoon size as 1 then there would be less whining as people put it. so I propose the creaters of wotb to allow 2-7 in a platoon that way we can add our friends to the game, make it more challenging for ourselves and others, here is another idea 7 on 7 clan battles or team battles like the quick setup with out going threw training grounds, I have asked a few many time in support its self about increasing the size of a platoon because there is 7 slots in a match per side, and only 2 slots in a platoon, sorry I do have a few more friends in wotb than just 2, and it would also increase the fun of the game to play along side ur friends look at call of duty or other mass multi player games where u can get the whole team of urs being u and ur friends..

 u want to make it to have 3 tank platoons? 

stoopid campers
