Just got in my first BETA match, took a while, about 5 minutes with waiting for servers!

1st Impressions, reminds a lot of MW2 graphics, the figures seem quite big so the worry of them looking small seems not to be the case! The general moving around seems a little cumbersome but that may improve with the game proper and perhaps the loadout options, the assault weapon seems to get good quick kills, that works both ways of course as I took a few very quick deaths myself, grenades seem to take an age to explode after throwing!

The scenery, I was part way in and already up in the station and then outside in the street, I like, good and destructive, the close quarter stuff in the street buildings was excellent being able to upclear one building through 3 floors, and getting my first set of tags (all in the cause of research of course! :devil: ) the actual process of tag taking was not what I had expected from video and supposition, it was neat and fast, not sure what the other guy saw :)) :)) perhaps I should message him to find out!!!!!

The feel of the guns, smg and pistol, early days but yeh felt an improvment on BC2, but then I was only on for about 10 mins, the RPG was good!

Well gonna go eat, will be trying to get back in later if anyone wants to try and squad up, overall :-bd so far!!!!

I too thought the graphics were MW2 ish...much brighter than I expected. :cheers:

I was unable to join on anyone. I'll be back on later after band practice. :D

So far I like it. My advise is.....: slow down :cheers:

Nice. I can't wait to play. When you get back on, I'm curious how the prone works. I hope there's not a ton of dolphin diving like in Black Ops. Everyone running around and diving while shooting always drove me nuts..

Prone is very simple, right stick one click is kneel, double click is prone, when running you can press down on right stick and you kinda ass slide like in 'Brink' i didn't actually 'Dolphin Dive' as it only seems like you slide on your ass, but it may be possible! Whilst in prone you do a neat little one elbow shuffle to move!

The weapons seem to have a real good recoil, there is a bipod that you can use which when you go prone or shoot over a wall or block it drops down and helps to stabilise the weapon, not sure if i pressed something or it did it automatically :-?

I really like the little bit of street fighting there is in the BETA at the moment, the building clearing and destructibility on the games I was in were excellent, if that is a taste of what is to come the urban warfare will be awesome :applause:

The only real gripe so far for me and those of us playing earlier, the squading up wouldn't work, so we all ended up in a party but not in the same team or game, but hey it has only just gone live and, it is only the BETA, so IMO give it a chance

i got in a game this morning with toxic,underdog,wildbill and bigdaddy but i think the reason why the squadin up wouldnt work was because how busy the game was last nite

Yea it was fun having MPeeps with me. :cheers: We were able to invite people to a squad in the main menu too. managing a squad I think it was called.???

I like the game alot. (big surprise right ) I found that if I took it a little slower I did better. I actually did some sniping. It was ok then i went to support. The M249 is a beast. :applause:

See you all later. I'm at work now but leaving as soon as i can. :cheers:

Good games with the beta yesterday. When they fix the squading I think we will really enjoy the game. The map is a good size with a mix of open combat and close quarters. I can't quite tell if I like the added melee animation, I am a little concerned that it will expose you too long, but there was something satisfying about finding a guy hiding in the bushes prone and watching the animation yank him up for the coupe de grace. :devil: :devil: :devil:

Yeah, I found a guy prone last night too. So, I knifed him. :devil: I think it does expose you for too long though. I was on the defending team and on the last set of MCOMS. I flanked as far left as I could go, went up the steps, and I found a bunch of enemies (with their back to me) on the sidewalk shooting down at the MCOM on the street. I had just taken my third set of tags before I got taken out.

Overall, I'm satisfied with the beta.


I found that if I took it a little slower I did better.

I played for 30 or 40 minutes this morning and it already seemed better than yesterday afternoon/evening. They must have a team working around the clock to fix things in real-time. In my opinion, the single largest advantge that this series has over some others is the ability to spawn on your squad mates. Very glad to see that this hasn't changed in BF3 and they've only made it better. I LOVE getting points for holding a spawn point. For those of you who know me, you know how I enjoy holding a spawn for the squad (not always in the best place mind you). This morning I did what Bill suggested and I tried to slow down a bit and take my time. In a couple of instances I was able to get into a spot with relative cover and then hold the spawn. I racked up some great points simply holding the spot and dropping ammo packs near to my squad mates who were laying down fire on the Op4. This morning I noticed that not only could I spawn on a squad mate, but there were also (not always) some sort of artificial spawn point. Anyone know what those were? I'm thinking a Recon maybe set out some kind of device which acted as a hold marker (maybe like CoD).

Not sure I will get to play much today. Might have to "see a client" this afternoon for a while, but then tonight I am out to see Roger Daltry perform The Who's "Tommy".

Good games last night guys. Sorry I had moments of pause in there, I was on baby duty last night.

Anyways..I'm really enjoying the game. It looks and feels like a mix of bc2 and moh to me.

Yes these are the radio looking things placed by the recon guys. So don't just put it down in the open because it's not a motion mine.

I enjoyed the beta last night. I agree that the melee takes some getting used to. It's not as quick as BC2 so I got shot down a few times while trying to get the stab in. I noticed a lot of peeps like to get prone and hide out in the bushes so I had to stay mindful of that. I got quite a few kills by going prone myself and then crawling through the shrubs hunting them down. Prone is the main thing I have to get used to from BC2. Smaller target to shoot at which is harder for a noob to FPS like me. Also hard to spot them in bushes and in the subway station when they are prone camping. I wouldn't get to see where they were until the shots were heading my way. It appears the scope reflects sunlight and you occasionally will pick that up to see where they are at. Overall, I really enjoyed playing and just need to get use to the minor changes like melee speed and people hanging out prone.

I noticed the spawn points too for squad mates spawning on you. It seems like points aren't too hard to come by in this game. I racked up points from spawning, throwing down ammo crates and was getting points for things like laying down suppressive fire. I was trying to shoot someone and missing all over the place and then I see points for suppressive fire. Nice little bonus for crappy aim :))

DayliteMag
09-28-2011, 01:23 PM
@Shady: yeah, I got some points for suppresive fire also. I think that is totally cool.

I have a sinking feeling that I am NOT going to like the going prone thing. Although, in reality, that is exactly what the enemy would do. Still, it's no fun getting killed three time in a row by a d-bag who is camped in a corner somewhere lying on his belly shooting everything that moves. It'll get easier as I learn the maps and can figure out where they are, but for now it's just a bit frustrating.

Regarding the melee kills: I noticed that you can't seem to knife someone who is elevated from your position. I was running near one of the short garden wall things and realized that an enemy was lying prone on top of the wall in a bush, so I take out my handy combat knife and try to take his tags. Tried twice before he stood up and shot me. Not happy, was I.

shady504
09-28-2011, 05:01 PM
Yeah. Once we learn the maps and then get online playing with a bunch of people on mics it will get better. The camper in the bushes may get one of us but then the others know where he is and have a knife ready for back of his head.

I just have to say that I am in love with this game. It is what I love about bc2 and moh all put together.

One thing I have noticed is the severe lack of teamwork thus far. Very few support people actually throw down ammo packs and very few assault people throw down med packs or revive. And waaaaaaaaaaaay too many snipers lately (I'm lookin' at you MOH). Attacking has been a bitch because of being sniped. It seems like the only way to get there is to crawl half the map.

I started throwing down ammo and health which earned me a ton of points with not a lot of kills...and I'm ok with that :)

I haven't had too much trouble getting sniped on the way to objectives. Teamwork is an issue but with a ton of blueberries you can't expect too much. I revive/med pack a lot, but can almost never find a support throwing ammo. It is very very rare.



Got me 2 sets of daylite tags though.

The coolest kill of all (IMO) is when you find someone prone and do a knife kill. You pull the guy out of the prone position and stab him in the neck. B-)

Meg and I discovered a few things today when it comes to squading up. If just 2 people are in a squad, and join a game together, they usually can get in the same game. But, they might end up on different sides. If this happens, all you have to do is hit the y button int he deploy menu, and you will be given the choice to switch teams. You will get an error sometimes saying that you cannot do because of server imbalance. But just keep trying, and you can even be on the same squad.

We played 3 games together, and never had a problem. But, I am still trying to figure out how we call can get into the same game together.

but if only they used the kits for their porpuses but they dont
no ammo,no medipacks and no radio spawns X(
then its the tag hunters runing around like mad
its people standing 2 feet from the armed mcom and not even trying to desable it
and the most anoying the proners that dont move one inch all game just worry about their k/d
one last thing i think operation metro was design to see if the cod fans would like the game, i like the map dont get me wrong but in my opinion dice wants to win the batle with cod

I was in a squad last night and really had to school the Blueberrys. I was ordering the whole team. lol 4-5 ofd them never played BF so I was nice and helped. them.

with a little help they got way better. :cheers:

It was funny ...Wildbill where do I go, what's that red box flashing, how do I drop ammo, whats this thing with the cross on it? lol =))

It took 3 games but they came around.

Here my tip for the first part of the map. Hold the middle high ground. It gives you a spawning spot to hit each objective. :D

+1 on the map comments. I played for the first time for a couple of hours last night. It will be fun to explore all of the nooks and crannies of that map, but I was hoping for more vehicle/destruction action.

Not a fan of the in-game menu, though I'm sure I'll get used to it. I had a lot of fun with it last night, but I have to say (actually I'm almost afraid to say) that it had a little bit of a HF feel to it. Can't put my finger on why. I'm really psyched to get in an MP squad though. I was seeing most the same lack of teamwork described above. One decent squad would win every match. To be expected, I guess, as everyone sorts out the new mechanics/weapons/maps/etc.

One thing I'm very annoyed with is that they reversed the medpack/defibs on the d-pad. After 500 hours it will seem natural, but why in the hell would you identical functions like that between bc2/b3?

I know this is the 360 version thread, but I got the same feeling playing for the first time last night. I had fun, there is a lot of promise here, and I know it is just the beta, but the game at least in the beta is glitchy and feels unfinished, just like Homefront. I am praying the final build is much better than this beta, because although it wasn't that bad, I wasn't exactly impressed either.

Agree with the comments about this map and also JK's re: CoD

I'm liking the radio spawn point. I've started getting in the habit of initially spawning as Recon, getting as far into the enemy AO as possible and dropping a radio. I will then either try to move on the objective or do a bit of close quarters sniping. Once I die then I spawn back as either a medic or an assault, but the radio spawn seems to remain active.

One thing I don't like in the Beta (I'm sure it will get fixed for BF3) is that there doesn't seem to be any consistency in the squads. The few times that I've played with MPs we either end up on different squads, or worse different teams. Also, it seems like mid-game the squads will start shifting and you aren't even with the original squad that you stared with. WTF? Anyway, I'm sure that will get sorted out. At this point I'm just trying to get a feel for the mechanics and weapons.

Also, it seems like mid-game the squads will start shifting and you aren't even with the original squad that you stared with. WTF? Anyway, I'm sure that will get sorted out. At this point I'm just trying to get a feel for the mechanics and weapons.
Aggreed BTW Congrats on the 33lbs lost :applause:

Got in a few games with a whole bunch of MP's last night, including 'Ares' good to get in a game with you! And 'Geordie' who hasn't been around for a while, as well as a whole load of the 'Old Regulars', well I had a lot of fun!

Sorry to be controversial, but I am kinda thinking that perhaps there is an element of being a bit over critical, hell yeh the camping, crawling, kd, cod lot are an annoyance! But surely EA/DICE are not gonna let this fail, they must have invested millions and millions of bucks on this game, this is a BETA is it not? Hell there's a lot of little niggles but what about all the new features, the loadouts for example, the streetfighting is awesome, yeh there are gonna be all sorts of glitches and stuff but isn't that why we are playing the BETA, let EA know and let's see what they do with it!

When good old TeamMP squads up for proper when the full game launches, we are gonna have a blast aren't we? AREN'T WE?

i totaly agree red about the prone/camping/codish :))
i find myself playing bad company style
yesterday i was getting anoyed diddnt seem to manage to kill anyone during one game, so i took a brake for a smoke then came back and started to pace myself ended up having a few good game
except for the fact the toxic took my tags again :cuss: ( thats cool i was never a big tag hunter )
but dont worry i think once we figure out the maps and playing style for each map we will have lots of fun :cheers: :party:

Last nights matches were really good. we had mp's on both teams. At one point I think my team had 6 and the other had 8 or something. :cheers:

FTR Toxic is turning into one of those campers/prone/cod-ish players. =)) man he had my nimber every where I went, there he was waiting. I guess he has figured out the map. :cheers:

On another note: It seems difficult to tell who's talking. I found it impossible to corddinate any defense or attack while the other team was listening. :( Maybe we should have a XBL party per team and try not to spy. :D

I love the game but wish they gave us the vehicle map. :(

You're right Red! I guess it's human nature to complain, but I do need to continually remind myself that this is just the beta. I can't wait for the full version with all the vehicles. I also really hope that there will be the ability to customize your kit load-outs without having to be in a game. I would like to spend some time considering and tinkering with the various options and just don't feel like I can do that in the middle of a match when I want to be in the thick supporting my team. I feel certain that the final version will in fact have that ability.

Anyway, it was great running with you guys yesterday late afternoon and early evening.

Had a lot of fun with all the MP's last night.

So far, I'm having fun with the game, but I'm not overwhelmed. The few bugs don't bother me that much (it is beta), but there are some game mechanics that I really don't like so far; maybe they'll grow on me.

My current beefs (subject to change over the next 24 hours)

Graphics wise, I don't see much, if any, improvement over bc2. It's a different style and has a little bit of a cartoonish look to me, but I can live with it. Could be because I'm looking at the PC clips and they are amazing.
The squad system has got to improve. A simple thing like getting a friend into your squad seems very difficult.
Throwing medkits and ammo is way, way too slow.
Arming/disarming mcoms seems very sensitive to movement. You pretty much have to sit completely still to make sure you get it.
Reviving is annoyingly difficult sometimes. Someone suggested kneeling, which does seem to help. I may be missing some clue here, but half the time I can't tell if I've revived someone and they've just denied it or I missed them or what.
I've been underwhelmed with destruction so far, although metro isn't the kind of map where that would be a big factor (although it would have been cool to collapse part of the subway with c4).
Still hate the menus and, like Daylight, really hope in the full game you can equip your kits outside of an actual game.
Hate, hate, hate prone and don't think I'll ever grow to like it. Yes, I know that I can use it too.

On the plus side,
I like the health/damage balance. It seems to be somewhere between bc2 core/hc. Makes me think the MP's could actually play core? :)
The mobile spawn is a very cool idea.
The metro map seem very well done to me with lots of nooks/crannies pathways etc. I look to play it about 4000 times before launch.
Knifing seems a little harder, although toxic has managed to take mine several times already. :cuss:

Looking forward to the vehicle maps. Oh, wait that will include choppers and jets won't it...

I agree with all of this, Lockwood. Good summary.


hell yeh the camping, crawling, kd, cod lot are an annoyance!

They are an annoyance for now. Wait until they play the wide open BF maps that we are accustomed to and they will either be dying quickly and often or running back to their COD. Not dissing COD at all (I happen to like that one too). :)

I know others have said this too, but I'm with you man. I hate the prone feature. I can't tell you how many times I ran by what I thought were dead bodies just to have some guy laying prone blast me in the back. I've only had the chance to play for about two hours, but I'm not blown away by the beta. Its fun, but just hasn't grabbed me like BC2 did.

Of course, its probably unfair to compare a beta to a full game, and I'm buying BF3 no matter what, but still... *Shrugs*

I had a terrible night last night, couldn't seem to win a gunfight, Friday I was getting a lot of +KDR with scores consistently in the high teens and twenties, not last night! Which was confirmed when I got the drop on 'Barry' and I exclaimed as to why he didn't go down after getting about 20 rounds in his face, he says "well from where I was you never even fired a shot at me" So big lag issues last night!

Still like it though and I can't wait until release proper! Gonna have a few more rounds to experiment with different classes and loadouts, then back into GOW3 for some FUN until BF3 release day, perhaps see a few of you on Gears?

Absolutely terrible day in the beta for me. It has completely locked up my xbox about 10 times. I've been getting shot from inside rocks, folks having grey or no tags (instead of blue, green, red), trouble arming/disarming mcoms, etc.

Did they install a patch last night?

It is more fast paced and a step in the direction of COD, but I will reserve my judgement for the full game. I just cannot base it on this one map which is more of a way to keep everyone in close quarters. Most BF maps are larger and wide open. I have high hopes for the full game and after watching the videos for the Caspian Border map, I think it will be just fine. :)

Yeah, it is upsetting. Same thing happened to me quite a few times too. I played a lot more of Call of Duty than BF:BC2, so I am used to it. :) I like BF, but I hadn't played it as much before joining you guys because it was a struggle with randoms. Now that I am part of a team, I would much rather play BF. Besides, I actually like BF games better anyways.

I deal with lag in everything I play, but the way this beta is handling lag will have people leaving in droves if that's how the release version does. I go from one round being a 4% kill ratio to being even on the next to back to 10% or less the next. I have played round where its pretty slow paced with a lot of crawling around, and others with squads bull rushing the Mcoms and the whole round last 15 minutes tops.

Sure it feels different and distinctly CODish, but I think there is a lot of positives to the changes that keep the halo jumping and texas chainsaw slashers to a minimum, along with some things I don't like. The big thing is going to be playability, and right now that is running only about 30% of the time for me, but when its running well its brilliant. IF they get the issues resolved and bugs fixed, I think its going to be a major kick in the butt to play.

and the 20k medals are kinda crazy, play 50hrs as recon/support/etc... i dont know if thats a little to crazy or not. in BC2, once you hit lvl 22 you dont unlock anything else but in this one you can be lvl 50 still unlocking weapons and scopes. i like it but i feel like ppl who join in a week late will have a huge disadvantage.

All the way up to 1 meg eh? :)

Mine is pretty good right now, 1.2m down/ .93 up pinging in the 40s-50s. That's about as good as it ever gets for me, and usually on BCBF2 that will translate into some good play for me. Yet I just finished a couple rounds on BF3 that were horrid, 5/21k/d and 3 /17 I could not kill just about anyone with any firearm, even point blank, and usually it took 2 rockets or that and a grenade. Yet one hit from a spitball from 1000 yards and I die like my brain just had an aneurysm, sometimes with my body flying back like I have been hit by a bus. The one before those I was nearly even at 14/15 . That is just frustrating as hell.

So I take you are upset? LOL! Seriously, that does suck donkey balls. I can't think of a single reason why they would delay the release in Europe. I say, blame it on the Greeks!

Haha! thxs guys, i knew good ol Team MP would pull through! all legit though guys, we just will need a bit of protecting in the firefights and a bit of help with the map layouts, we intend to earn our goodies legally! :-bd

I don't think it will be so bad. If your squad is that much further ahead they'll have the "squad" specializations, so you'll be covered by whatever specs they pick. The starting weapons aren't that bad, and, you get the extra weapons with your pre-order.

Oct. 25th is Tuesday. Virtually everything is released in America on a Tuesday. I think the explanation for why the release was staggered had something to do with this.

Can't wait til' it comes out, though. I can never get in a game with any MP's right now.

I have found that if you invite from the menu and the other MP is also in the menu then you can start the game together. I saw you on. lets get a BF3 party started and then work out the squd from the menu.

The in game invite thing doen't work. :cheers:

Just a thought, weren't the PS3 guys talking about separating the BC2 threads into an XBOX and PS3 War Stories thread because the XBOX side talked too much? Now, I know we have 11 pages of faux war stories on here, but DAMN, they have 48 pages of talking about a game that isn't even out yet. Pssh. =))

Well, my 1st kill was a double kill on the Firestorm or whatever it is called map. What a great way to start a new game off. Learned quite a few things Spotting, and mobile spawns are essential to attacking in rush mode. The choppers are way different on controls compared to bc2. I love the assault. Man what a great kit. Played on 3 of the maps so far, and they all are EPIC!!! No lag to speak of, Server browser is phenomenal, and the little robot is funny as hell.

I went 7 and 9 my 1st game and we won while attacking. My friend that plays COD went 4 and 14 on his 1st run. lol And still said he was having more fun than he did with MW2.

The last map I played was the Base Jumping map. This is a very tight map. especially at the end. When you jump to the bottom, you have to have a Mobile spawn, and take them out quick or otherwise you will loose.

Thanks to all the MP's that I played with tonight.

Already great games last night. Still a few squading glitches, but the gameplay was smooth and looked great. Sorry Bill though I do think it is fitting that the first set of tags comes from an MP as I gave my first set to Freak! Playing with all the blueberries was a bit annoying last night so I really can't wait till there is a whole group of MPs.

+1 on Toxic's Order, or else: Assault, Engineer, Support, Recon.

You won't learn too much of a map playing recon unless you are using a red dot sight on a weapon and going for close combat.

Landshark is good at shooting down flying things! :applause: Engineer for the robot. Support for mortars. Assault for paddles. Recon, whenever. This way the most team useful elements are unlocked.

BTW, anyone else get Blu Blazen1's tags? Freak perhaps? Apparently he was on the DICE development team.

@Teach: I think some flying lessons from the master will be in order. So far, jets = fly around in circles until I am bored. Jump out. Arm mcom. I think they could be more useful than a fast means of setting the mcom.

oreon87
10-25-2011, 05:17 PM
well if no one else wants to go recon first, i think i might take this one for the team. all the games i've been in so far when attacking no one has laid down any radio's. so after i will start recon when i play with u guys.

Wow, I remember the other night I was about to go to bed and I played one more round without my headphones and I think she joined the squad I was in. Acouple of minute after I think I left the game because I was literally falling asleep. I hope she didn't think that I was avoiding her in any way.

Tell her to give it some time and learn the maps. I'm running around getting killed at every corner and is very frustrating right now. I'm chalking my many deaths up to simply no knowing the maps. I think Landshark has the best advice: take it slow and be patient. :-B :hug:

Not mad at anyone, just frustrated at how this game is not working most of the time. Had issues last night, and finally gave up and threw the controller and my headset, and promptly told Lee to sell it all! Not you guys, just had a rough week, and the gaming issues haven't helped my bad mood. I don't know how the invite system works or doesn't, so you guys are going to have to help me out by inviting me some. I realize I am not good at this game at all, nor was I good at BC2, but I do enjoy a game and chat with you all. I just got frustrated because I felt shunned due to my lack of skills. Please, don't respond with a bunch of "you aren't that bad" comments, I know I suck, but I am okay with that. I just need you guys to be okay with that, and give me the chance to at least play some with you. Just let me know if I'm cramping your win/loss ratios, and I'll go snipe somewhere on my own. No big deal, just tell me first, okay?!

That said, the few minutes things did work properly, I had a good time sniping! Gotta figure out how to get into hardcore mode, these damn spotty things help me find the bad guys, but then I forget to find a new hidey hole, and they find me back, usually with a knife! OOPS! ;) Can't wait to try it out again tonight, but I am afraid being the first Friday night since this game has been out, we will have server issues, but I'll keep my fingers crossed! ;)

Gotta figure out how to get into hardcore mode, these damn spotty things help me find the bad guys, but then I forget to find a new hidey hole, and they find me back, usually with a knife! OOPS! ;) Can't wait to try it out again tonight, but I am afraid being the first Friday night since this game has been out, we will have server issues, but I'll keep my fingers crossed! ;)
It's okay Meg, you aren't that bad :-" :devil:
Jackass... :-" ;)

O.K., you suck, but on a relative basis (relative to me and many of our brethren), you fit right in.

I realize I am not good at this game at all, nor was I good at BC2, but I do enjoy a game and chat with you all.

I haven't had the chance to play on the same game as you, so I'm not sure how "bad" you are. But trust me, I'm no superstar! I very rarely get more kills than deaths, and as of now my K/D ratio is around .49 (although I could care less about that stat). I usually end up in the top half of whatever team I am on for points earned in other ways. I know I'm not as quick on the reflex as most others, so I like to tail squadmates and heal, revive, take flags, or arm/disarm MCOMS (and every now and then shoot someone in the face).

To me it doesn't matter if you come in last place or first place in points, or if you have 1 kill to 32 deaths, as long as your having fun. :D

Not mad at anyone, just frustrated at how this game is not working most of the time. Had issues last night, and finally gave up and threw the controller and my headset, and promptly told Lee to sell it all! Not you guys, just had a rough week, and the gaming issues haven't helped my bad mood. I don't know how the invite system works or doesn't, so you guys are going to have to help me out by inviting me some. I realize I am not good at this game at all, nor was I good at BC2, but I do enjoy a game and chat with you all. I just got frustrated because I felt shunned due to my lack of skills. Please, don't respond with a bunch of "you aren't that bad" comments, I know I suck, but I am okay with that. I just need you guys to be okay with that, and give me the chance to at least play some with you. Just let me know if I'm cramping your win/loss ratios, and I'll go snipe somewhere on my own. No big deal, just tell me first, okay?!

Yeah, you definitely sucked at BC2. So badly, in fact, that you had to start all over from scratch and got to level 50 about 30 seconds after I did...and I never had to re-start.

Meg, the invite system in BF3 is flawed/broken. It is nowhere near as good as it was in BC2. As a result, I often end up gaming on my own b/c I don't want to wait forever to be able to join on someone else. Even when you can join, its rare to end up in the same squad the way we were able to do in BC2. When you look at the list of who is online you will notice that everyone is spread over a bunch of different maps and servers, and I think this is b/c it's hard to join on folks. IMO, The best thing to do is join a live party and then start a new match with a new squad, that way at least four MPeeps can get into a match together and it usually puts you all in the same squad. They really need to fix some of these issues. One of the major reasons people like playing these games is the team work element and at the moment it's a bit broken.

Actually the new invite/join system is brilliant and far deeper than BC2. It's not broken, just different. The best way is to go into the server sceen and the go to the "friends" list where it will show the servers that have your friends in it. Find the one you want and click join. If it's full then it will add you to the que and link you to the game automatically when a spot opens up unlike BC2 where if a game was full you had to wait and hope for someone to tell you it was ok to join, and that only worked if someone in game was constantly checking the scoreboard.

Managing squads is also far better now. Just going to the "team/squad" menu and click on the squad you want to be in.

I didn't know about the server que trick. Does that work if you go off playing somewhere else? I'm guessing not, but that would be really cool.

The squad thing seems to be improving as well. Several of us joined on each other last night, and because of full squads/teams we were intially split up, but when the round changed it automatically put us on the same side in the same squad.

First of all, AWESOME TO SEE YOU BACK ON THE FORUMS RETRO!!!! :party:

Second, although I haven't used it much, I did poke around in the menus last night for a bit, and I agree that it appears the new system is much more dynamic than in BC2. I think once people get used to the differences they will realize it is better than in BC2. Also, DICE is aware of the squads getting split up issue, and are already working on a patch. Until then, a little inconvenience is worth it to play this awesome game. Hell, after Homefront, this game seems perfect :))

@tox, that damn thing gives ya 3rd degree burn before you kill me with it. good games!

@rnr, become great at flying them, just dont teach the randoms how to dodge my missles!

KD ratio and w/l ratio doesnt matter, especially since after i tried 50 times to get a server started to get all MPs in and had to quit when few could join and it counts as a loss win you do that, all that matters is we enjoy gaming and gaming with MPs. I apologize if my occasional smart ass remarks offends anyone, but i went through my friends list last night and there is NOT ONE MP that i mind playing with. Thats what is great about us MPs, no matter how frustrated we get in game, we all have something more important in our lives.

had one real awesome moment, Landshark and me were running together watching each others backs, he was up on top of a rock sniping and spotting, I was sat down below him on his left suppressing and shooting with my 249, he shouts "aw shoot i'm getting my tags taken" so I jump up spin round and look up to see this dude swinging his knife at something, holy crap! so I just loose off with the 249, and get the 'enemy killed' thing, the next moment I see Landshark jump down off the rock and he's alive!!!!

Great graphics! the whole thing was frickin amazing, this game is awesome! :applause:

Another great, LATE night gaming with MPs. The Que thingy was actually working in the srver we were on so ended up with 14 MPs in a game, most of the night it was 11-13. next time we need to try the voip thing when we have more than 8 on a side just to see if it works decent.

I was like, shit, getting my tags taken again, then all of a sudden it is over and I'm just sitting there, not sure what to do next, wondering why I didn't see the death screen, then I see Toxic beside me and realize he just saved my ass! Thanks Toxic! Anyway, good times last night. Lockwood caused me to lose my tags to Roadrunner in a fluke spawning accident!!!! I did a little camping of my own though, and kept Runner from being in the game too much!! I also had a lot of fun taking out Sarphy in his tanks! Even managed to jack his tank from him once! Sorry, Sarphy!

I really had fun last night, Lee said I was a party whore though, moving from one party to the other all the time. I decided it would make sense to join the party that the rest of my squad was in, plus most of the guys in the original party I was in were on the other team.... I am pretty sure Lurch managed to get my tags that way. Ray-Ray and I had a little match around a concrete wall that was pretty awesome, but Raider won. I also remember cussing Nuts and his damn rockets on one map, every time I turned around, I was eating a rocket from him! Overall, I had a lot of fun, you guys made for some great games last night! ;)

Once again awesome matches last night. I think we were able to help lockwood end his losing streak! Runner you were owning me yesterday. :applause: :applause: :applause:

That was a good night of games. I was sad to be one of the the 3 MPs on the other team lol. Although, I did end up with a nice set of Sniperella's tags! B-)

Underdog, you kept running in front of my gun...that's all I know. Except for that one time when you wouldn't let me take your tags lol You seriously must have had a spidey sense tingling, cause I was just about to swing my knife when you spun around and shot me! :((

Screen shot of all the MPs when I first got into the game...

I was tempted to trade in bf3 yesterday after playing bad games and not enjoying the game. I decided to give it 1 more try last night and had a good game which was mainly mp's. I still cannot believe I got MVP and went 28-14.

clean the roof/gutters. :((

2 words: Gutter Helmet :hug: :-"

Best investment I've ever made.

Yeah, our gutters actually already have guards, but stuff still builds up on top where the different roof lines meet in several places and behind the gutter shields (I don't know what else to call them) that keep the water from pouring off the house where two sections of the roof line meet.

thats 5 MPs vs 9 MPs, another great night running with MPs that was!

@cronam, glad you decided to stick with it and I was glad to see ya in game last night :cheers:

We finally had 12 MPs on one side last night and tried the team chat feature, it works but not as good as live party. if anyone talked over another it would cut out, plus it took me most of a game to send messages out to everyone that we were doing it.

For you guys having trouble. I will give you guys some pointers I learned today. Support is best for just starting out for me. You get huge amounts of ammo in your clip, the Bi-pod gives you superman accuracy, and you can also Revive, equip C4 and Med packs. The Red Dot opens up fast. I started out today on support, and I went 18 and 5. Got MVP achievement as well on the 1st match. We lost, but my team was not that good. I also got 4 tags that round as well. The next round I did better, and unlocked the RDS and heavy barrel. Accuracy and suppression fire are key with this class. And you get both with the Bi-pod and large magazines.

I will test it out again later. I hope this helps out the MP's that are still struggling with BF3.

What gun did you unlock the RDS for? I have been using the LMG that comes with the Physical Warfare pack and love it. Finally got the extended mags perk. Don't have the RDS, just the 3.4 zoom (or something like that) which I hate because it sucks for blocking vision and I have just been using the iron sites.

Actually I am using the Default starting weapon, M27 IAR. It is beast. And I am almost to unlocking the M249 in 2 rounds. Which is a great weapon too. I will probably play this gun until I unlock all attachments for it. It is really a very accurate weapon, and the open sites are very good too.

For starting out, I would have to recommend engineer though I agree with gmrtag that support is very good as well. Rockets are very useful and you get very good points for taking out vehicles. Also, once you unlock mines they are extremely effective against vehicles as they are much harder to spot in this game then in BC2. It does mean sacrificing your repair tool, but it now gives you two sets of tools to take out weapons and you can drop lots of mines. If there is air in the map, I run with an anti-air missile and mines for ground vehicles. After being pwned by choppers it is really nice have guided missiles to shoot them out of the air.

I think so, because I specifically did not get on Comms because I'm having trouble with my mic, but I was still hearing everybody. Although now I can't remember if it was just my squad or the whole team. Uh, nevermind. L-)

The 249 is great. The recoil isn't bad and the rate of fire is awesome. Mag size is 100, and the extended mag takes it to 200. if you loadout with the ammo spec you'll have 200 in the mag and 400 spare. The 3.4 is pretty good on this gun b/c of the smaller recoil, but holo sights are better for most purposes. I used this gun until I unlocked the 240B, then I switched to it. Now I'm using the M60.

It's very easy to take out squads of enemies at a time from a good defensive position with the bipod set up with any of those three weapons.

Had a blast playing with everyone last night. Finally got my rocket pods for the jets yesterday so I can rain death from above on ground vehicles.
Also, I found out that I suck after I killed sniperella a few times. She made sure to point it out to me. :))

The interesting part was that we stuck together all throughout the rounds helping each other out and communicating. I think once MW3 comes out we will start to see this more often with us.

It was great fun. We've all noticed in the past that the times we really have a hard time beating the opfor is when they really work in squads. Well, even just the two of us backing each other up, we were able to dominate so just imagine how we would do if four, eight, or all twelve MPs on a team stuck together and moved in force. Actually, I kind of like the picture of twelve of us making coordinated attacks and defenses. It gave me the chills.

I'll prolly get the get a couple of weeks after its release, but my main game will still be Battlefield 3, what I meant was that when MW3 comes out a lot of the server issues that we have trying to get everybody in a game will go away.There will be a lot of players moving on to MW3.

I wondered why you blew off my party invites. I know I sent at least 2. I thought you might be mad at me, I'm good at making people mad! We had 2 parties going that I know of. Had a good time with the new guy, Steelhead, hope I haven't scared him away just yet. JK was awesome as usual, and totally cracks me up, he's really quiet on the comms until he starts losing! =)) Antagonizer joined in with us, as well as Visodd! Nice to see you two again, you've been MIA for a while, and Snipey missed ya! ;) All in all, good games, most of K/D ratios were positive last night, and we had our share of wins and losses.

The only thing that I can think of that we are not doing sometimes, is working together in our individual squads. We don't really coordinate well, and we don't stay together. Not pointing fingers as I am as guilty as the rest, but we would be way more effective if we stuck together and didn't all run the same kits. I played several rounds with JK and a couple randoms one night, and we ran together and helped each other out, and were pretty much unstoppable! That said, I just like jumping over stuff and looking at my feet, and changing outfits! Now we just need PINK cammo!!! ;)
