World of Tanks Rules of Best Platooning



World of Tanks Rules of Best Platooning by KingAlphyn

Okay, here are the rules of best platooning. Note that optimally,  you will stay inside of a single category. I have listed the combinations which, while not optimal, are still entirely acceptable if you don’t mind you or your friend being dragged up a tier from where they’re meant to be. Premium tanks have been denoted with an asterisk. The following is my own personal opinion, and if you know for sure that your unorthodox platoon combo works, then go for it, but you may do well to consult this chart if in doubt.

Tier 1 [Battle Type 1 and 2]: Acceptable categories to platoon with: T2 preferential.
