Hi!

 

Have I missed something but is there a way to decline in-game platoon requests during the match?

I try to get brothers in arms when the noobs have died, but if they have ruined my game with an ingame platoon request, I cannot pick a winning combo myself due to the pending sex offer.

I understand that some game developers feel that they need to have all the opportunities for new friendships in the former USSR countries, but I do not need that feature for anything else than medals.

IIRC when you press shift to get your cursor you can ewither click the friendly who suggested a platoon to accept or click on a cross next to your name (?) to decline it. I could be wrong where the decline button is but there definitely is one.

Just ignore the request?  Or untick "Accept invitations to platoon in battle" on the general tab of the settings....

So what you are saying is that you don't want to really platoon, just to game the system for extra medals ?

Pretty much.

 

Since medals are now worth bonds they need to rethink the way the Brothers in Arms is awarded, you should be part of the platoon at the time of all the kills to get it.

Yes, exactly this. Squeeze everything out of WG!

But I want to use the feature when... it's appropriate.

 

The in-game requests are mostly, well chatted on the forum, a nuisance. This game is not a dating site!

one should be platoon when the leader clicks the fish button

for the medals to be awarded. everything else is just bad sports.

Appropriate when you want to use it? So turn it off and when you think its appropriate, press ingame ESC, go to settings, tick box, back to game and invite ..is it really that hard?

I always assume they are people looking to complete missions. I'm happy to accept those.  Joining a platoon just for some bonds is a bit too much like prostitution for me.

Hm. This, IMO, is just the same as people saying "Oh, let me get the last kill for my medal/mission" in battle. It renders the reward entirely bogus.

Only 58 % as free to play. Play better and  get ya craptogether so you can show the world you can make it to 60+ so everyone crying who  p2w is insta win(and without the credit card you are an utter useless bot) needs to shut up. Best of luck animal and don't let down the fanbase.

58% over 300 battles of nothing but low tiers with crapcrews, a place where he's definitely not accustomed to play at all, I wouldn't say that's bad by any measure. I'd assume that will only get higher when he gets to the Comet and above.

I think that when you platoon up after the kills are already done you should instead get a slightly different medal 'Brothers in Farms.'

He started a fresh account where he plays a line from tier 1 to tier 10 (he chose the CAX) with zero prem ammo or prem consumables, fresh crews and only training crews with credits and no prem time other than what the game might automatically give as rewards, not to prove a point (maybe partly to prove a point), but mostly just because he wanted something new to do in the game and since his real account really has it all unlocked already and nothing left to unlock, he decided to make a completely new one. He's doing (semi-)frequent videos on his yt-channel about his progress and thoughts about the low tiers and what it feels like to play on a completely newb account with no bells or whistles of any kind.

 

EDIT also he does play a couple other tanks, mainly just to get some personal missions done with other classes for those sweet extra rewards to make his life a bit easier, as one can when starting a fresh account.

If you are conflating platooning with sex.  You are doing it wrong.

That option only stops others from sending you requests, you can still send out your own requests whenever you want.

I know, just wanted to motivate him a bit more:) I'm also pretty sure with some decent crews and tanks now he'll start hitting the 60 % mark soon.

 

Also i only accept platoon invitations if someone asks politely for a mission, i remember in the early days i was helped a lot by those random in game platoons to finish some of the missions, so i am returning the favor whenever i am asked.
