The person that invited you will have a gold "+" sign by their name. Hold down the "ctr" key and right click the name and top choice will be :join platoon.

Can't you just left click the +? i've never done it but as someone who has never done it before that's what i'd try and do

No, after the game you'll still be in the platoon but most people just leave it right after as they typically just want to cooperate in that one game or they're doing it for medals like brothers in arms

I've always just hit the Return key and click on the glowing ➕

I've heard this as likened to Tier 1 spam.  True/untrue what?  I mean, if you invite someone to platoon and they get wasted right away where's the benefit to either party?

Dynamic 'toons (those created in game) don't effect your MM obviously, as you're already in the match. I usually accept these invites because its usually a player looking for a 'toon to complete a mission. If they go the 'right' way I support them. If not, they're on their own.

 

If they actually provide support, and they sometimes do, then its a lot of fun. Accepting them won't necessarily be of benefit to either party, but neither are they detrimental IMO.

I do it like Worland does it - hit enter, then click on the + sign. You can also get a medal if each member of the platoon has 3 kills, so sometimes you'll get an invite at the end of a battle if you've had a good game. In any case, I always accept platoon invites. Adds a little flavour to the game.

I understand how to join the dynamic platoon, but then how do you communicate with the dynamic platoon? Lots of times I join these platoons but no one is communicating. Is there another step to open a communication channel? Do you have to access the platoon widow from the game? How do you do that?

 

Thanks

Hit the Enter Key to open chat, then Tab Key to go to Platoon Chat.  Your chat window will turn Gold/beige and you will be in Toon only chat.
