Only if the other tanks in the platoon also are in tanks that has pref mm, else you get +2

No, you haven’t.  You may have either been lucky, platooned with Tier 4 tanks or other pref. MM tanks, or are simply mistaken.

From the WOT Wiki:

 

Block Quote

 IMPORTANT: If you are in a platoon, the entire platoon is placed into battles according to the platoon member in the vehicle with the highest battle tier. This can produce unwanted results in particular for new players at the lower tiers. For example, a tier 4 scout can enter battles up to tier 7, whereas a tier 4 medium tank on its own can only join battles up to tier 6. If these platoon together, the scout will pull the other tank up into its battle tier, where the other tank will usually be hopelessly outclassed. The same thing happens when a tank with preferential match making is platooning with a normal tank. Please take this into account when forming platoons.

Why is that? you'd be bringing in tanks that are balanced™ for +2 down into +1

No it's perfectly logical and what should happen.  Nobody should be able to drag a Defender into tier 9 games maximum just because they platooned with a Super Pershing.

Lol even thoe your not allowed to platoon with 1 tier higher tanks or 1 tier lower but I mean i find it stupid if your using a Preferential Mm tank with another Tier 5 User in your platoon and not being able to get Preferential i just find that utmost stupid in alot of ways

If you just think through this briefly the answer should be obvious.

Both tanks need limited MM. Otherwise you could artificially give a regular MM tank limited MM through your platoonmate. OP, you're looking at this totally wrong.

Please explain these ways. It seems super logical to me.

It's not, otherwise you'd just platoon up with a pref MM tank, in a normal tank and then basically have pref MM in a tank not balanced towards having pref MM. 

 

MM always gave you the highest tier that any of the tanks in the platoon could see. It was why light tanks had their MM changed, as lights couldn't platoon with normal tanks without dragging the normal tanks into higher tiers than they should see.

Not stupid.  If you got to keep your pref MM, then you would, by default, be giving it to tanks that don't get pref MM.

the only thing that is stupid right now in this thread is how many people have repeated to you the same exact answer on why this is happening.
