Platoon 2.0: The new Platoon member search functionality and improvements to Dynamic Platoons
- Players can now search for Platoon members automatically from the Garage.
- Platoon members will be selected according to similar WTR, the number of vehicles (of each tier) in the Garage, and the number of battles fought at each tier.
- Players can set additional preferences for the search:
- Playing in vehicles of certain tiers
- Players who prefer to use Voice Chat
- The restrictions and preferences of the search are expanded over time to guarantee any possible match and to reduce the waiting time.
- As soon as the Platoon members are ready for battle, their vehicles will be displayed in your Garage.
- Tanks will be displayed with full customization (the option for enabling/disabling non-historical elements applies).
- Players can enable/disable this feature in the game settings.
- Voice Chat is off by default for Dynamic Platoons.
- Players can toggle Voice Chat by pressing the “H” key in battle, or by using the new button in the Platoon window.
- Platoon 2.0 works in all Random Battle types (Standard Battle, Assault, Encounter Battle, Grand Battle).
