What's the protocol/good manners for ending a platoon that is just not working? I hate offending people, but I also hate losing alongside people who won't take good advice.

 

I wanted to TOGtoon this AM, and nobody on my friends list was around, so I jumped on general chat (oops) and found a TOG II* driver. He had only 45%WR in his TOG, but he was 50% overall, so we jumped in and got going. We lost three in a row. The first loss could have happened to anybody; we both did impressive damage, but the red team had some good players and they beat us. Losses 2 and 3 were really pretty bad. I kept a positive damage ratio throughout, but after the third game I figured I'd be better off TOGging solo. I signed off with "Yikes! Three losses in a row is my limit. I'm gonna try something different" and dismissed the platoon. He got really cranky about it, and in retrospect I wasn't all that graceful. But this is a guy I just met in chat, and we lost three in a row, and what do I owe someone like that?

"I'm going to sleep"

"I gotta go"

"I have something to do"

Or just shut off your phone and log back on after a while. If they ask, reply with connection issues or "had to take a sh*t"

Listen, it's not you.  It's me.  You're great, but I've just got to work on my side-scraping.

 

Seriously baby, that thing that you do with your turret is great, and you're gonna make some other tanker really happy, but it's just not me.

 

I think we need to see other tanks.  You know, become more well rounded individuals.  If it was meant to be, then it'll happen again.

 

We had a good thing going.  Let's not ruin it tears.  Let's enjoy it for what it was.

do you mean breaking up a platoon, then not going offline? then its kinda hard. try to think of something the guy you want to platoon with is, and then tell that to the guy you're platooning with right now. such as:

 

a clan member just invited me and i have to platoon with him

i need to help my friend get the hang of the t110e4

i need someone to help my wr on the [insert tank in a tier he doesnt have]

 

and always start with "so sorry"

if you are gonna go offline after it, then just say "i gtg, thanks for the games, cya"

I just had an incident with someone who had added me randomly a while ago. We played once or twice for a few games. He invited me to platoon today and he started off.the match broadcasting "jerk" in the global chat. And when he got killed he started swearing in all caps in the global chat and called... Someone possibly me an idiot in the team chat. As soon as I died I left the battle, dismissed the platoon and blocked him. There are a few terrible platoon mates I've had. Either ignore thier requests, tell them you are in a platoon already or just remove them from your list.

I usually tell people I don't want to mess up there win rates with my "poor" playing. Be the victim. It makes them more likely to listen
