    Default Battlefield 3 Platoons

    Hey guys, just a quick question here about our NiF Platoons....


    Should there be members of our Platoons who never come on the server, TS or forums?

    In my opinion they shouldn't, they're taking up room of future members and also getting they're name on the stats board whilst they're not exactly representing us.

    I can think of the name of one: Theguyfishes.

    What do you guys think?

    Cheers,
    Matt.

    Hawker i think you have to ask youself in the same sentence how ofte do you interact with those ppl you think is taking up space ?
    I have a little group of ppl i interact with and many of those playing on the servers these days are not even on my friends list !
    So if the same ppl playing on the server is the same on TS why join ? sitting there being quiet having nothing to talk about is really not that massive fun.
    But hey ill remove the Nif tag if that makes ppl happy
    Just dont expect me or others to be friends with the same guys you are
    Read up on what makes a good community and you will find out what you are suggestion will nullify efforts to make Nif a bigger community,
    I think instead Nif should embrace differences both in online time and games they play

    And for good measurement, treat ppl nice untill they have proven themself to be Asshats like a good friend of mine calls'em, then you can either kick, ban or
    dislike them, but give ppl a chance

    Our platoons are open for any1 that applies to join. Even if they don't play much on the server or join us on TS and forums they add some interaction to our little community. Tbh I have no idea of who most of the platoon members are, but if u check up on them on gametracker u can see that some of them has pld a considerable amount of time on our servers. The more the merrier, unless they are asshats

    I do see ur point tho Matt, so thanx for starting a discussion about it. Share ur thoughts guys (and Hans)
    It's open season for MOOSE !

    Thanks for the Reply guys, I understand where you're coming from. My point is that some of the people in the Platoon I have Never seen on our servers or even heard their name mentioned.

    I was just curious that's all.

    Cheers,
    Matt.

    didnt really get the first two posts.

    But..

    if we don't let randomers join how would rene look like hes got friends?

    --------------------

    Our platoons would look very empty. not that it matters that much.

    However i also quite agree tbh.
    I think it would be a good idea to have a platoon for

    Members Only
    Fans (tag)
    Loyal players for server/ts/forum (tag)

    with feeds on whats going on in nif/games being played/lots of links to forum
    mebbe a bf4 thing.

    James is on the ball, and I reckon thats what Marys on about but IIRC thats how it is anyway, or thats how it used to be.

    I remember when I first joined NiF, I was invited to a platoon with 99 members in. One month later, when I truly 'joined' NiF I was then invited to another NiF platoon with only 20odd members in. Is that not the case no more?

    The difference with most Battlefield 'Clans' and clans in other smaller games such as CS or COD, is Battlefield tend to use the word Community rather than Clan...

    I think Mary is asking what James said to do, which I thought we already had.. maybe not anymore, and that is:

    Have a BF3 NiF Platoon for the Core Members of the NiF Community, (The actual NiF BF3 Clan)
    And then have a NiF Platoon(s) for the general NiF Community

    Just a fair note,

    NiF is a multigaming clan/community, not a BF3 clan/community.
