Im starting again this topic.

There is too much dynamic platoon request in the game but 1st battle in dynamic platoon have no bonus.

Just if you stay in platoon after battle and start new game in platoon.

You can see that in the platoon screen if you hover ponter near "i" sign.

When there were platoon "personal" missions I could see the point in dynamic platoons.

 

Recently the platoon spam does seem to have gone up and every time I joined one I would be alone in the platoon after the battle so I turned off the option to receive them.

 

If anyone has any idea why there's so many requests with seemingly nothing to gain then I'll switch it back on.

You can turn the setting off if it's bugging you, most people i know that use it just do it to farm brothers in arms or crucial contribution medals.

My guess is that people simply haven't noticed that there is no bonus for the first toon.

I certainly hadn't, and I have ignored these requests for several years.

I understand those and don't see the point.  They should change those medals so it only counts what happens after the platoon is created, or make it non dynamic platoons only.

Yeah same here, I mostly play in platoon with clanmates anyway so it's of no use to me. I'm not sure those particular medals even give a boost in XP or anything.

Then why do they keep inviting *me* to such platoons at the start of a battle? I usually assume they are just optimistic and hope it will promote cooperation. :popcorn:

There is no exp for any medals except where you get courageous resistance on a loss and the platoon medals don't count for that.  They also don't count for the missions requiring 1 or 2 medals in a battle.  The only thing you get is a couple of bonds and that's going to make for some slow bond farming.

You know you can turn that off right so you won't see it.

 

It was added to help you do platoon missions for the orginal campaing. But now that they are removed, it's just a nice way to farm BIA medals.

I've always assumed the person is on a 'do x damage' campaign mission and is looking for some help bumping up the numbers.

I always accept as it really makes no difference to me either way and someone might be after a mission.

You also get platoon requests in the dying seconds of a game when those with 3 kills or more try to platoon to get a medal.

I've been doing it to increase creds and XP because I have premium. Didn't realise you needed to play more than one battle to get the boost. Sorry to have been wasting everyone's time :facepalm:.
