Anyone playing this on the PC? My new htpc has me buying pc games again, and this was a great purchase. Nothing beats shooting with kb/mouse.
I'd like to get a platoon of some sort going on the PC; I tried to join zero's POLK platoon, but it wouldn't let me for whatever reason.
It is a good time to be a gamer.
PC player here, my Origin ID is MTBonifacio.
I'm going to sell my game I played 2x and I don't like it can't get into it what so ever....it is to bad but guess I will wait for COD
It took me 2 full days to get used to multiplayer for whatever reason. If that's what you're basing it on, I'd say maybe give it a bit longer? MW3 does also look badass, but I'm hooked on BF3 for now.
Face: Adding you now; we need to get a pack together for the PC.
Alright fellas, I'm finally in. Whens the crew getting together?
Zeros shows up as a friend on my battlelog and we can chat. I wonder why they'd bother doing that if they're not going to let us cross platform platoon up. Hell, let me transfer my PC BF3 guy to 360 back and forth so I can play on both.
Face, flail I'll add you guys as well - though I'm on the west coast ;)
Xbox player here. Bigheadchotaboy is the name....
I still haven't put the game in yet! :evil:
I assume you all will be putting something together for tomorrow night? If so, i will take the plastic off the case and throw that bad larry into the drive!
I'll friend request everyone at some point in the future............i'm lazy. Not going to sugar coat it.
Clearing schedule for after 9pm...Quote:
but definitely plan to play for a while on Friday night.
Probably not recommended jumping in green but its the only way.
If anyone is interested, if you watch this 3 minute trailer at the end you can get 5 free dog tags for BF3, any platform:
I apologize for the "noobie" of this question, but I am loving the multiplayer yet still need to get a few things straight. Obviously I am new to the Battlefield series as well.
When I am in a squad, what does it mean when the screen flashes 'squad spawn on you in 10'? And do I have the option to spawn on my squad? It seems even if I am in a squad, I always spawn back at the base. Admittedly I probably should look a little closer, as when I die and respawn I simply press the x to do so (PS3). Is there a different option to spawn on squad, versus at the base?
And do I need to have a headset/mic in order to give or receive squad commands?
Thanks for the help.
I'd also recommend watching this video for tips:
The multiplayer on this is just sick, awesome, rad, killer, pick your verb. From the dust filling the sky after a building falls, to lying prone behind a rock, jets, helos, a number of ground vehicles, it's just the best multiplayer experience I've ever had. Blows away COD. The squad's seem to work well. The levels are near perfectly laid out. No bottle necks anywhere that I have found.
It's almost impossible to be a lone wolf in this game, you have to work with your squad/team to take objectives. I get a smile on my face just thinking about it, lol.
I've been playing mostly the support class. And that exactly what you are. You can't sit back with the snipers trying to pick people off, you won't hit a dam thing. And you cant be running with the assault/engineer guys. The opposition guns will kill you faster than your HMG will kill the opposition. You have to be somewhere in the middle.
Anyhow, I'm taking thursday night off playing, have to "prove" to the gf that i still love her. $100 steak dinner here I come. But I'll be around friday night, probably all day from about 3pm cst till who knows when.
Spliff7 on 360 See you guys out there.
I'll join you guys Friday night. I think the thought of having to re-level up as been preventing me from playing it. But I'll just use the 360 version for these social occasions :)Quote:
Shep and I have been on almost every night, while tommyboy (kovster) finally decided to join us last night. Grim has also been on a lot, but we can't seem to be able to tear PrazVT away from his PC. I wont be on tonight (hockey game), but definitely plan to play for a while on Friday night.
So i had some spare time and threw in the game.
First impressions...............F'n TOUGH!
The controls are all out of whack and i play a lot of first person shooters. I'll get used to it.
The opening AK47 is a pile of $hit!...i spent a majority of my time run for dead bodies to find a different gun. The spawns are terrible. I spawned literally in front of a guy shooting at someone else...insta-death. WTF!
Most of all, i was having the hardest time just seeing anyone. The corners are pitch black and like COD, there are campers EVERYWHERE!!
But i will not let in. Now that i got my feet wet, it can only be uphill from here. Playing the campaign should give a better feel for the game but who has that kind of time.:lol:
What is with Battle Log!?!?!?!?!?!
I have an origin login so type it in and hit the sign in button only to be told "Buy Battlefield to sign in"....WTF!!!!
I think i have anger issues...........
Problem solved............................................ .......:redface:
Yeah i went back through the thread and saw you had posted that.....my hero:smile:
I sent you both friend requests on battlelog, you just need to accept them. I sent one to ohskigod too.
There's no mystery there...i don't know how anything works :lol:Quote:
You must not understand how the spawns work.
I have never played a battlefield game before so last night was a learning experience. Painful learning experience.
I didn't know my a$$ from my elbow but still enjoyed what i was doing to a degree. If we jump on tonight, i hope the veteran players will help me.
ALRIGHT! The Polk platoon just doubled in size when MrBiron just joined. There's a whole 2 of us now! :lol:
