You have to hand it to WG. They create missions which require platooning and platooning fails.

 

I've been unable to play for a couple of weeks so I've been trying to catch up on the Tank Reward points. Three times in the last few days I've tried to platoon to get the Brothers in Arms for the additional points and all three times the platooning has failed - I've been invited but clicking on + button (multiple times) hasn't worked or my invitation disappears and I can't create any invitations. Its driving me crazy, its not as though I get 3 kills and survive that often.

 

Anyone else seeing this problem or should I blame WG/my mods?

Because there are never any problems making platoons this way either, it all works perfectly with out bugs the same as shared chat channels da!

I am glad that I managed to play all days so I will have enough time for last rewards, but several days is happening the same as you said. When the game is almost over, few times I had 3 kills and get request for platton for another player, when I click it, like you said it just do nothing or disappears

Nope. Been doing them just fine with dynamic platoon invites, and never had issues inviting or accepting invites. If you have any mods, it's never a bad idea to try in safe mode first. As a fair few UI issues are related to just that.

It's a recent bug, if you have anonymizer enabled then you can only initiate in-battle platoon invites; when you try to accept from others it fails.

I platoon every night with a mate of mine (literally every night!) and we haven't had a single problem with platooning since we started playing together in December 2018...

Glad I'm not the only one! Do you know if its Mod related or just a general bug?

Seems to only happen with dynamic platooning (inviting or accepting platoon requests ingame)

After disabling the anonymizer, no more problems.

Thanks. I don't play with the anonymizer on so it isn't this in my case

A couple of times I clicked to join dynamic platoon but nothing happened. After battle in the garage I was in the platoon I tried to join.

 

So, sometimes it works but you won't see it until match is over.

Had the same thing a number of times, but also had total fails trying to platoon

 I've got the anonymiser enabled and have had no problem accepting invites- even when dead

I don't have that turned on and I have issues with the platooning anyway.

 

I invite people and boom all the invites are all gone... and nothing. After the battle I see that I am in a platoon with two people, but the battle counted as me being solo.

 

The other thing is that when people invite me, then half the time I can't join their platoon for reasons unknown, and I say unknown as the reason you gave with people using the anon option doesn't count for me.

Sounds random but it's somewhat recent, don't remember having this problem a month ago.

So it sound like a real bug. Is everyone experiencing it running mods or is it happening with vanilla clients as well?

Tried getting it with both mods and without mods. It is about once every 20 games or so the issue arise, from my experience yesterday.

Does that not point to the person you are trying to platoon with has anonymiser/mods running?

Could be... but that would indicate that it is that anon person there breaks the platooning by being the first one accepting the invite.

However it would be hard to prove as you can't see who is anon or not, nor can you see which was the person who accepted the invite first either.
