I got only one question that comes into my mind: why?

Is it really necessary to add elements into gameplay that take people attention away from actually playing the game?

Dynamic platoon update has to be the most pointless thing WG has added into this game.

I will also like someone to explain why is this implemented? It really looks like useless feature. Or am I missing something?

First game on the test server and I got pinged repeatedly with platoon invites by other EU players. This got annoying very quickly so I found I could turn it off in the settings. Guess it'll be joining Encounter mode and Assault mode as a tick box I never tick

Unicums are going to be spammed by entire teams of dribblers.

Thanks for pointing out that this feature is switchable - saves me watching the video. As long as WG make their new features selectable who cares?

Feature to auto-platoon with random people with similar stats, or selectable stat range and/or vehicle based criteria BEFORE battle...yes.

This crap...no...

To me this sound like a great thing. Being able to voice chat when for example 3 tanks remaining, they can team up in a platoon and come up with amazing strategies, no need to type and trying to explain something fancy. Of course, it will be unlikely that you will end up with players who have microphone equipped but it is possible. Or if you spot some nice people, you can decide to team up with them. If you are planning on going certain spot you can invite players and you as a platoon will go there.

This is a great addition to the game, if you don't want to use it then don't use it. Some people do find this great. Test server has more "limited" people than normal EU server so it will not be as bad in the real server. (it will be bad but it will have its moments, if you spot a nice guy in chat then why not to team up with him.)

This sounds like a nice easy way to get in a platoon to complete personal missions.

 

Now i'm just waiting for someone to point out the massive flaw in that statement.

Ok, so it's for easier personal mission and as noted, to try to coordinate with others in battle. Whatever.

The word 'currently' suggests that forming a platoon with an enemy player might become a feature at some point. How would that even work?

 

This means that platoon will be formed after a battle. Just like the normal ones, they last until they're dissolved.
