Here is the reason why :

 

  • We are always wanting to have one more person, in our platoon,    but  u are always limiting us to like 3 people which is lame,
  • So ​Please (especially when it  is another clan member,  please allow them into our platoon, even if it makes it 4)  
  •  
  • There is no reason to limit it to only 3 people,   makes no sense,  and so please explain if I'm missing something here.

There is nothing wrong with platoons as they are now. We don't need to give WG something else to break, so no

If you want to play with more than 3 players on a side, then try team battles or skirmishes.

Having 3 means you can get 5 platoons in matches evenly. 4 means there will be 3 men out. It also means that you can end up with wild imbalances with teams, as suddenly instead of 1/5 of the team possibly working as a cohesive unit, you have ~1/3 of them doing so. This can be bad.

Stay in school OP, it would appear you need the education. The grammar was horrendous, let alone the atrocious formatting.

 

That being said, the reason is very simple - With Platoons, comes partial control of your teammates. This means that you can artificially change your Win Rate and bias the outcome of the battle simply by managing which vehicles and players you take into your Platoon. If you put together 3 Super Unicums, in some of the stronger / more capable vehicles of that Tier (As many players already do to pad WR), then you will win significantly more than a solo player who is running just any random tank in the Garage / Tech Tree.

 

It's already annoying enough having to fight against a 3 man BULBA Platoon in Russian mediums, when my team is full of tomatoes - It makes it not fun; whilst they can pad away their WR's and have a great time together, I'm stuck here wondering how some of the players on my team are supposed to be functioning, breathing human beings. It's simply unfair and rather quite dull when you're on the receiving end of things. Having 4 top Tier Unicums in a Platoon would essentially guarantee a 90+ WR. That's something which has terrible implications for gameplay.

 

And of course, on the flip end of things, there are also terrible players who fail Platoon Tier 4's and 5's with a Tier 8 scout, wonder why they're in a Tier 10 battle rather than a Tier 4/5 battle all the while calling their team idiots... when they're the ones who can't even hit a stationary E-100's rear from 50m away. 4 man Platoons could have terrible results.

Sorry but 3 players with BOT like stats is bad enough as a platoon. Adding a 4th is truly unfair to every team you join.

There IS a reason.  Wargaming has found that more than 3 good players working together can run an extremely high win rate by platooning.  Further, 4 guys like you in a platoon would be an instant loss to every team you are on.

No such thing as a unicrum.  They don't exist.

So says the one who has to hide behind a re-roll.

how about we go back to the old way.....platoon of three IF the leader has a prem account.

 

that would surely get rid of the bot platoons

If you are trying to make a point you failed miserably. My alt status does nothing to change the truth of what I said. Go troll someone else.

Reds and purps flock together. Having groups of four, instead of three, will just unbalance MM even more than it already is. 

 

Making the games worst problem even worse is just a bad idea. Sorry.
