Since you cant play pubs while "Waiting on folks to answer invites"...and you cant join a platoon if its already in battle even if you were sent an invite...how about adding a checkbox or something that would indicate you are actively looking to toon or if you are in a toon, that you have a slot open etc.

 

For me anyway, this would make it much more convenient to toon with friends and or play more, there are some times I simply wont even bother to solo pub and just wont play at all unless im in a toon.  (maybe its just me though)

 

heck could it even be expanded to something like the strongholds/team battles pages where you could actively look for existing players or toons around your level that are looking for another toon member?

 

anywhoo...just my friday 3x weekend/solo pubbing sucks/ rambling

"Since you cant play pubs while "Waiting on folks to answer invites" . . .

 

Since when? "BATTLE! - - - Platoon is not full. battle anyway? - - - Yes!"

 

Problem solved. Resend 'toon invite when your battle has ended. I do it all the time, especially when I'm on the Personal Reserves clock.

You can right click everyone and see their clan tag. If you can see your list at all.

I would like a general Looking for Platoon option where you can set a few parameters such as tank types and tank tiers, and maybe someway to filter by experience such as efficiency. I love to platoon but even when I have been in Clans there never seems to be anyone available for T8-10. If there was a clan made specifically for platooning at higher tiers I might be interested.

what does their clan tag have to do with actively looking for a platoon?

 

the technology already exists, perhaps just using the existing format for finding a stronghold team....where i can see all the existing teams looking for members, or if I have a team I can see folks looking to join a team etc.

 

but it doesnt even have to be that complex, just an icon next to a players name in your contact list that indicates they are interested in tooning (or have a slot available) would be a useful tool to me anyway.

 

anyway...its just a suggestion...which is why its in this forum =)
