If you’ve been playing the Battlefield 4 Beta, you might be wondering: “Where are the Platoons from Battlefield 3?” We are looking at introducing Platoons for Battlefield 4 in early 2014. We know this is a very popular feature for Battlefield players that have been used by thousands of fans, and as such we are preparing to bring it back into Battlefield 4. As we do this, we’re also very eager to hear what new functions you would like to see. Battlelog has always been an organic service that constantly changes and grows together with you, the community – so please; share your thoughts on the BF4 forums! We’ll be able to share more of our plans for the upcoming Battlefield 4 Platoons feature later.

What about the emblems of platoons on the soldiers and vehicles? Or the emblem in player profile is exactly that thing?

The Platoon system from BF3 is good. No changes needed.

Can you create a place for us to provide constructive feedback with some defined rules for submission?

Why not make all platforms for platoons one?

The ability to upload your own image into your platoon. Not this generic pic what we give you.

Just create a function to transfer the existing platoons on BF3 to BF4. That's enough.

And Dan_ownz_u_88, that already happen, just google it.

If I have a platoon member in my squad or on my team, can his name tag and dot icon appear as another color so that he (or the rest of my platoon members) are easily identifiable on the battlefield?

Early 2014? That's patently ridiculous. Just put in the existing system until then, for crying out loud.

Able to select default setting for squad leader, platoon leader etc. so we wont have to leave squads and create new ones in order to spawn on best player.

The Emblem system is welcome, I created a artillery shield out of what was offered in BF4 Beta. However it reminds me of the much greater range of options available to say... COD Black Ops II where I was able to replicate the FSPN Squad Patch with like 30 layers and alphabet letters.

The BF3 Platoon system is perfect, it should be ported in it's entirety over to BF4 without interruption or changes because Clans change to new games but Clans don't need the disruption in between games having to build a new Platoon Base in BF4.

To me i dont see the purpose of a separate Platoon system from BF3s. You just force us to recreate the same platoons we had in BF3 to BF4. Why not just have the platoons crossgame?

Sounds like the squad XML in Arma

Only thing I care about being added to platoons beyond what was already there is joining on platoon members via the com center (like have a platoon display) and match making (which should include record keeping), this helps organizing matches.

We tried that in our old Team-awg forums years ago, and we found that several thousand avatars and animated gifs really consumed bandwidth and slowed the forum server to the point of breaking.

It is a nice Idea, but feel it would be a bandwidth monster munching on EA.

- Recommended platoon server(s)
- Challenge Us
- When you post a url in the Platoon Presentation section, make it a clickable link.
- An event calendar and the ability to rsvp

Just a few off the top of my head
