OPC Community Platoon.

[ Edited ]
403 Replies 3,709 Views edited 27-10-2011

Hey guys, and girls. 

 

So i come here to propose about creating a OPC community platoon.  

 

Boom: Here is the new post-release OPC Platoon: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/platoon/2832655240998170505/


What is a platoon?

Basically its a hive , where it keeps track of the players stats of all the members   Platoons are groups of up to 100 players that band together under a single name and emblem. It's what other shooters would call a clan. You can belong to three different Platoons at any time. You can invite and whose games you can join whenever you're online. Any way that is my understanding of it. Stats earned by our members will contribute to our overall standing as a platoon. There is no need to take this seriously though, its just about having fun with fellow forum members!

 

Firstly,

 

you need activate your Battlelog you can do that here : http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/

There are people having issues activating there account, so it may take a while to happen.

Anyone who has played an online EA game, in theory should have an account, you will need an email address, and password.

 

So...


Hopefully it can be a place where Battlefield nights take place, or just a place for members to hang out and have fun.

What i am wanting though is names of people wanting to joining and helping in the creation of the platoon. First thing first though is we need a platoon name. I suggest keeping it OPC based, but something we can all agree on. Once that is settled, i guess we can create a new thread, or Muster buster, or some other nice Mod can make a nice thread with details how to join etc. 

 

I would also imagine we will use the same name, for the group section on MW3 Elite.

True, it'd be a ugly sight to see something so small coming out of something so big.

I hope they make away to allow you to team up with platoon members/friends without having to add them over the PSN. My friends list is already full :(  I had to make room to accept NX13 friend request (and he repays me by not being able to appreciate the beauty and all round awesomeness of Hayley Williams :() never mind the the 80+ individuals in the OPC platoon :( (though some are already on my friends list because they are awesome people who are not Philistines unlike one individual) 

 

Technically speaking the OPC platoon is nearing company strength. A platoon is usually 30 men with a typical company being 3 or 4 platoons :SadWitch:


Fixed.

Tbf no one gets rejected. Some did get rejected in the Beta but that was because Astro clicked the wrong button :Stupid:

I've also applied. Are there multiple 'leaders' just to confirm people on joining?

That would certainly help in speeding up the member count.

Hey all, sorry about not accepting over the past day or so. Been at work and the parents. I've accepted all requests thus far.  I will see if i can add other leaders, or officers or the like, if not, i will certainly send a request to have it added. i believe the battlelog is also in beta as well. 

 

again, apologies for the late accepting of requests!

SOCOM Confrontation had a similar set up. The clan leader could promote people to officers or demote them agian, throw people out of the clan. But all officers could invite people to the clan and organise clan matches.

 i been having a look round and can;t find anything :(  but i have posted on the battlelog beta thread. so hopefully some one might pick it up.  

 

At the moment the battle log seems pretty basic, but i guess they might have something lined up for release. Like comparing stats etc. 

 

I wonder how it will be incorporated on the console version. Hopefully  you can go into the group and join game/create game etc.

Done a little digging all I found was this.

 

"When you create a platoon and add members... by each members name there is a highlight able icon to the right of the name. Promote to leader. "

You sir are a lenged! cheers. So tried it out on you .. and your right you are now a leader. I'm guessing this platoon will fill up pretty quickly, already on 23 members.

 

So i'm looking for two more volunteers please :)
