Can someone smarter tell me why do a lot of players just ask for platoon at the beginning of the game right away (during countdown)??

 

Unless I am missing something, dont you both need 3 kills each at least to get a brothers in arms? So why do they all jump the gun and ask for platoons. Especially if they know that they are incapable of killing even 1 tank? :facepalm:

Most people still have XVM, and the low wn8 players (usually for me) invite those who have good wn8. 

Or either because they like your nickname in case you're using anonymous nickname. :P

 

Edit: I don't use XVM, but I can recognize the low wn8 by watching them firing HE or after losing their tank in first moments. :D

I thought about that too. But dont one of you need premium time for that extra exp (or both)? Not sure. I never see any extra exp during my impromptu platoons.

I suspected that XVM is involved. But what benefits can one get from platooning immediately with another player. Especially if the medals are rewarded if both contribute. :D
Still very strange. What do they expect? Me looking out for them? :D

more xp and credits only works for the battle that is after a dynamic platoon is created. A lot of players just not aware of this and they are thinking that they can get more xp and they invite.. I usually don't accept them but i created a game for myself i just accept if a players name looks like anonymized so i accept to find out it is actually anonymized or not.. Other than that if you start a game after that platoon is created its going to give you %10 more without having both layers with prem acc.

Only if you form the platoon before the battle.

 

I turned off dynamic platoon invites unless there is a special on, they were useful when there were platoon missions but now it's just more spam.

Yeah so I was right... kind of. There is not exp or credit benefits for Dynamic platoons.

Aside from getting B&A or crucial contributions medals.

So many people do this its so annoying. Hahaha

But when they have 3 kills and  I send them platoon request they dont react... :D:facepalm:

Some of the campaign & event missions require you to be in a platoon. 

 

XP and credit boost is only given in the second battle if forming a dynamic platoon and normally the dynamic toon breaks up after the 1st battle so I doubt people pay attention to the description.

For example half of the tank reward missions last month required to be in a platoon.

For me, usually players invite me, and I accept without any problem.

And mostly my place is among the top 3 players by xp, unless I make a stupid decision and die in the first 2 minutes. :D

So, this is why people platoon! I turned off platooning nearly 2 years ago, I tried a few, and wondered why the hell anyone would do this.

I only platoon with people I know, well, actually now I dont even do that now, but used to!

But it happens when there are no platoon missions.

 

BTW, the platoon requirements of personal missions were removed some time ago.

Splash, its not that I dont like platoons. Its not even a question whether I am in top 3 during the match. Its more that the only point in platoon is to gather B&A and Crucial Contributions medal.

And these geniuses think that for B&A you need 6 kills. (They dont understand that is 3kills each)

 

I mean its not annoying me. Far from it. I just wanted to ask you guys if there is something Im missing? So many ask for platoon straight away. 

 

As Homer said mission platoons have been removed. :)
