When requesting a toon from your chat buddies how do you do it.  It more difficult than it should be to get someone to toon with you.  I wish they had a button that would just put you into a toon que for a tier and playstyle (heavy, lite, aggressive, Options our endless)

Getting someone to is just too difficult at times.

What do you do to get a toon?

Thanks

1) ask them if they can toon and send an invite.

2) ask more people if they're online.

3) wait a few minutes for a reply and/or toon confirmation.

 

I typically dont accept random toon invites without at least a PM since if they cant even be bothered to send a message, then how the heck do i expect them to actually want to play? It's common courtesy to try and comminicate anyways to coordinate any tier restrictions, mission goals, or simply free play joyride time.

I wouldn't recommend getting a random toonmate from a pub match. You more than likely won't get many high quality players. The best way is to invite someone and wait a few minutes. If you invite everyone on your friend list, and just pick the first guy, it's kind of rude to all the others who are taking the time to accept and willing to platoon with you. Just my 2 cents.

  I always send an invite and then converse. It’s not hard...,”Toon?”, “Hey man, toon?”, “You want to run a few?”. I always respond back if I get a request and I’m already in a platoon. Sometimes my platoon ends and I’ll go back and ask someone if they found somebody yet. 

 

  That’s the thing with friends, they don’t get mad when you don’t accept and they understand when you can’t join. Still explaining yourself goes a long way.

I consider a simple "toon?" message sent to a single individual perfect...  then i give it a solid 7 minutes before i will send one to another person on my friend's list.

 

I don't often accept random requests from people not on my friends list or that i don't know..  especially from the dufus that i just downvoted in a previous battle and who i sent a message to encouraging them to either go back to playing Candy Crush or watch some YouTube videos lol.

I like your wait 7 minutes clause. I hate getting an invite and trying to accept, only to find out that they sent invites out to a dozen people at one time and you were in a battle!

  It doesn’t bother me, Meat_Locker does it to me all the time. Then 20 minutes later he asks if I’m playing with someone yet because the guy he was playing with quit. I don’t get bent out of shape over it because I can usually find a toon if I’m looking for one. 

 

  The point is I’m usually not looking for one and I mostly only platoon when somebody else asks. The exception happens when a guy I haven’t seen for a while That I thought might have fallen off the face of the earth or died hits me up. I’ll always accept that request. 

 

  Good toon partners that you synch with are never to be taken for granted. You always remember the epic runs you’ve had and when you get that request from an old pard it’s like finding a hundred dollar bill on the sidewalk. I love it when somebody out of the blue sends me a message and asks, it’s like running into a high school class mate I haven’t seen for years. You shake hands and then you pick up the conversation from 15 years ago like you just saw him yesterday.

I usually start with general clan chat, run a quick tier 6, check back to see if anyone was wanting to run. If not then I start hitting up clan list directly, but only one at a time (very occasionally x2 if I really need a toon for a mission), giving them 7 minutes or so answer, usually just putter around garage while waiting for that reply. Repeat as needed. Also, I’ll accept an invitation anytime I’m available.

Ring on your neighbor's doorbell and ask if they're up for a good time.

 

...unless they don't play Blitz, then start with clan chat and go from there.

If it is for a mission I will usually start with a notice that I need a toon in clan chat, if no results then, friends list spam. Tooning at other times is always via chat first then send the invite. My problem is that as a mediocre player at best, I am worse as a toon partner.

It's not like it's asking a girl out or something.

Yeah well.  Funny thing is, I unknowingly friended him and he started doing it to me too.   I already blocked him.

In platoon indicator or available for platoon indicator is long overdue
