Before you can play in a Platoon Match, you must be a member of a platoon with at least 6 active members who are able to join a party and match make at the same time.

To put together your team in a platoon match, you must do the following:

1.) In Multiplayer, open the Battlelog Social Hub.

2.) Once in the Battlelog Social Hub, choose to Open Party.

3.) Now you are in the Party Lobby, you must first change party access to Platoon Only.  Then you can send a mass invite to all members of your platoon by choosing to Invite Platoon Members. You need a minimum of 4 platoon members to start a Platoon Match.

4.) Once you have at least 4 members in the party, the option to Start Platoon Matchmaking* will appear. This will start matchmaking and eventually join you into a Platoon server. Platoon matchmaking only runs the Homerun game mode.*PC server owners, please ensure that your server has been configured for the Platoon Playlist before starting Platoon Matchmaking.

Scrim 4v4 or 6v6 anyone? Think your platoon has what it takes to go against the creators of the game? We’ll be setting up a Platoon Match playdate soon where you can take on the devs from Danger Close. By the way, which platoon is the best out there? Let us know in the comments below!

Fuck this shit...... NEED UPDATE !!!!!!!!
No.
Patch? ?
5nd, first page!
Over a month and still no fucking minor updates. I seriously don't give a shit about this platoon matchmaking.
fuck first page...
who gives a shit.patch your game idiots.
WE NEED THE FREAKING PATCH!!!
patch this rubish game
not many people like home run mode. please sort something out for the other modes to be included in clan matches. even if they are not ranked matches. nice pic jinxswe. but mines better lol
I hope this shows them how terrible they are at satisfying customers, only 11 comments on this news so far and every one of em are telling Danger Close to suck a dick.
The patch is coming on 16th December... 1 day before The Hunt DLC
this game is good. but it is not set up for clans or platoons. its ment to have comms. it doesnt. its ment to have fire team buddies? it messes that up its ment to have parties, it splits them up its ment to have platoon matches, 1 mode that sucks,
It lags so bad in the Platoon Matches it makes it impossible to play. I hope this gets fixed.
just passing...
My Platoon is looking forward to going up against other Platoons. But HomeRun is not the game mode we enjoy or feel very competitive about. Sorry D/C. But there needs to be other modes.
MERKAGE on ps3 32nd in the world and have tried this but couldnt manage to find games, clearly people are too scared to face us
fix the fucking game first, with no players you have no platoons, and for i think the most of us, we have doubts for buying any new MOH or battlefield in the future. find a propper game maker. we are done with the Eternal Ametures faullures!!!!!!
Patch.
Cool idea devs! I would love to join in with you guys!
fix the game and have hardcore tdm. i would play the other game modes but maps are fuk'n to small. things i hate when it comes to being recon class the mortor thingy shoots in the same direction your back is facing. im shooting it this way but it goes the opposite way wtf. the airburst mortor doesn't even cause damage i even directed it next to me and i didn't even die. campaign fix that piece of shit to.
Guys, if you dont like the game there are many more out there for you to play, MANY more. If you dont like it then dont play it. Sure, it needs patches, but if you keep on hating the developers and saying their game is shit then I somewhat doubt that theyd want to get round to patching it any sooner. Personally I think its a great game, despite any little problems it has. Like I said, there is always battlefield, and then there's Call of Duty, and also the many other games out there for those of you with complaints. You should rather point out glitches or whatever to the devs, instead of hurling abuse.
W ALL DUE RESPECT DC/ EA, I HAVE BRAINS AND SO DO ALL OTHER GAMERS, WE NEED THIS TO FUCKING WORK FIRST, FIRST POINT, SECONDLY WE, THE COMMITTED GAMERS DEMAND AN EXTRA SOMETHING WITH THE PATCH. LOOK YOU FAILED US FACT, NOW MAKE IT RIGHT AND STOP TRYING TO SCHOOL US ON SOMETHING WE KNEW BEFORE THE BETA EVEN LEFT YOUR HUB. YEAH Ur Ma knows you aint the xATEAMx, FuckYourClan. p. Fucking s./ we are all working forward to battlefield 4.... xox hooha
ONLY HOME RUN? AND THE ONLY MODE WHERE PLATOONS ARE RANKED? You HAVEGOT to be kidding me...
Really... I got all egg-cited for nothing seeing a new icon on the HOME screen thinking it was the patch news but no..... ((FACE PALM)) But anyways, nice info for the players who didn't know how to set up a Platoon match .... Maybe its a hint for something that will be released who knows... Cheers!
YEAH LET'S GO NERD RAGE WITH CAPS!!! -_-
i love this game... ive played it for awhile now and i dont have these problems people seem to have. mics are working lately and gameplay has been great. homerun is the best gametype, i just wish there was more no respawn game modes rather then capture the flag like a teamdeathmatch or something. and for GREENBUTT, there is nothing wrong with the campaign. its flawless!
On the side note... Looks like the DEVS are only playing XBOX... The Hyperlink "DEVS" doesn't show any other platform ... Hopefully I am wrong..
Over a month with no patch on what is easily the most buggy, broken, glitched out game in history and you guys are talking about wait .. what .. platoons ?? .... wow ... this game is such an utter failure. Fix your broken discount bin game and the handful of people who still play and haven't sold it or traded it it in might care about this kind of stuff. Not many of those left anyways.
6 players is very exciting for a little war of clans ;/
