Why i feel we need them is for games like this where we Carried the team (2 Random people) but because we wasn't Platooned, we don't get a Brothers in Arms Medal. What i propose is during the game (which lasts until you reach the Garage), You can invite 2 Players to a One Match Dynamic Platoon to help with Brothers in Arms. Reason i say 3 Total is because players could abuse it for Crucial Contributions if it was 5 players, where as 3 players, All 3 would need a reasonably great game to get it (In this case, Me and 268 = 9 Kills, 3 needed for a Crucial, 3 Man = We can't get it as next lowest has 1 Kill, 5 Man = We would get it as i would invite the 268, FV4202 (as i know him from Forums, Arty for the nice game and another random guy).

 

EDIT: Now i see it's not practical and it isn't a good idea as i had an idea on the fly as in the moment, I'll leave the thread up though.

In general I like the idea. But please tell me, why is it abusive to team up for a "Crucial"-medal, but not abusive to team up for a "BIA"-medal?

Brothers in Arms is a platoon medal. If you want it, drive in a platoon. Why make it more complicated than that?

We already have the Open platoon system that allows anyone to join anyone. To allow it mid-match to earn Medals illegitimately doesn't sounds like a great idea though. You can always platoon up with them after the match is over. :honoring:

I don't play for them and i rarely platoon other than 2 friends. When i saw me and the 268 was having a great game, it made me wish we had Dynamic Platoons. Two Players who were Randomly Generated and with No Communication. PC has Dynamic Platoons so felt Console could have it too.

You can abuse BIA too, but for BIA, You need 3 Kills each between all Platoon Members and Survive. Crucial, You need 12 kills between all members but you don't need to Survive.

I did think of a New Platoon Medal.

 

  • Earn 10000 Damage between every Platoon Members
  • Platoon as a Whole must do 40% of the Entire Enemy Total Health

I think that's ten times the requirement of High caliber, so best suited for ten-person platoons?

I understood what you said, I just don't see a reason to grant platoon-specific medals unless you are driving in a platoon. What's next, a Gore for scouts?

Number could be changed but a Platoon Equivalent of High Caliber and the Damage the entire Platoon does would contribute for example, in my Screenshot, Both me and 268 had about 5900 Damage so together it would be 11800 Damage towards the Platoon High Caliber (Had we Platooned).

I don't see why this is needed.

"Hey look, that guy's having a good game on the other side of the map. I'll just make a platoon with them so we can get a medal"

:trollface:


Remember, it's just a game!

Why not let us pick the lottery numbers after the drawing, too?

Want BIA or CC medals, make friends and learn to work together.

Anything during the match or after the fact is a joke.

Fair point, Was just an idea but i understand that it won't ever happen. Max made a good point too and it was an "In the moment" Idea, so not always going to be good ideas. :)

Can you imagine your own comm channel when you're having an epic match?   

 

"Platoon up with me!"  "No, me!"  "Not them, me!"  "I deserve it more!"   "I helped you spot that TD!"  "No fair, I asked first!"

 

Like a whole busload of first graders, all calling "shotgun", and you'd wish they'd all turn blue...
