Hey all,

 

A quick suggestion for platoons while being in the garage. At the moment, you need to have a big clunky screen up to see when someone is readied up and what tank/tier they are in. 

My idea, if anyone has played rocket league, the car they are in is seen next to yours.

 

Now, you only see what tank they are readied in when using the platoon screen, so maybe have it so you can choose a tank in your garage to always be shown as your "default platoon tank" that's shown when you aren't readied, but maybe quickly drives off and is replaced by the tank that you ready up in? 

 

If anyone doesn't get what I mean, just look at the rocket league lobby, the same sort of idea as that.

 

rather than having to keep the platoon screen up, it's very out dated and takes up a fair bit of space.

Why does it matter. Current UI does the job well.

I see your point, but for our menu and the garage layout. It will just make it more messy etc. A simpler idea would be to have 3 lights on the platoon window at the platoon tab in the lower-left corner. 3 red lights, none a ready. 3 green lights, all are ready. No need to over do it.

While I understand your suggestion, I can't see any real benefit over the existing platoon window. It is hardly a big clunky screen, more a standard pop-up size that shows the 2 or 3 members of the platoon, who is the commander, what tanks they have picked and if they are ready of not. Fail to see why that is a problem for anyone.

I guess that depends on the resolution you play at and how much you like to oggle your tank between rounds.

 

Like that chat though it is dated, maybe when chat 2.0 arrives they will do something with it.

Well last time they changed it, it became worse more or less.
