I may have gone overboard with blacklisting, since a large majority of the list are from the Korea server merge and the sudden influx from that peninsula of numbered accounts. It's a chore to sort through those and take out anyone who hasn't been playing in awhile.

 

my opinion on platoon has remained relatively the same: it turns what often feels like 1 vs 29 to an either 2 vs 28 or 3 vs 27. It may be a very harsh and pragmatic view, but it's something I've adapted to a certain extent. I'll still occasionally trust a random ally to back me up, but that shouldn't be counted on until proven otherwise.

 

maybe I'm just fortunate that I've get to have above average players to platoon with, and to them, I cannot express enough gratitude not just for the carries but more importantly the company and the experience that I can take away from working alongside them and better myself so that I can occasionally carry them in return.

Unless when you platooned with me and it was still 2 vs 28 in a 3 man platoon. :trollface:

 

I am loving the centurion and unlocked the Cent 7/1 (waiting for a crew retraining discount to move the crew up), maybe we can roll out together in our centurions again and you can teach me how not to suck.:teethhappy:

there are still ways you can communicate with the team. 

 

I would have thought that a player losing health is a good indication of an enemy ahead and danger.

 

That would require situational awareness, a quality most pubbies lack. Some people need to be told.

being in a platoon is not a guarantee of success, but just having at least 1 or 2 players on the team whom you've played with and are familiar with working with to whatever extent is enough for me.

if not then at least they'll make me look good.

 

but yeah, pull it together.

 

sure thing, it's about time someone showed you the ways of one of Her Majesty's finest machines.
