    This always happens with the gaming companies, nothing new to play then all of a sudden the markets flooded with new titles

    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.

    True. I am not as big of a gamer as I used to be but I wish I was. There are so many top notch games coming out lately. I think the developers finally have caught up to what the hardware can do. I just finished Red Dead Redemption (awesome game) and am intentionally going to steer clear of MW3 (because I have no time to play that as well as the others).
    It is a good time to be a gamer.

    Willow:

    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.

    Yeah, apparently the platoons are platform specific. Sucks.

    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 ;)

    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.

    Hi Guys,

    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.

    Squad spawn on you means a squad mate spawned on you and you got 10 points for it. When yo go to spawn, scroll up to the optional spawn points and you will see your squad mates if they are alive. You can spawn on any of them as long as they are still alive. You don't need a mic to give commands, just point your cross hair on the objective or person and hit the back button on xbox360 or select on PS3 to ask for ammo/meds or tell the team to attack an objective. You can also use this same button to spot enemy troops and vehicles for your team to see on the map and with a orange triangle over their head for a bit of time.

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    Yeah last night was the first chance I got. I have to say I really didn't like the game we were playing, I find rush much more enjoyable. But it doesn't matter what game I play, I suck. There's still A LOT I have to learn.

    :
    You must not understand how the spawns work. You can either spawn at your base, in which no one can kill you. Or you can spawn behind squadmates. it doesn't matter if hes getting shot at or not, as long as hes still alive, you will spawn. There are also mobile spawn points people leave, but I'm not sure which class has them and how long it takes to earn them.

    There's no mystery there...i don't know how anything works
    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.

    Yeah, I prefer rush as well. Those guys that I am friends with are hooked on conquest though, and I'd rather play with a bunch of friends on a game that I do not like as much than with a team full of lone-wolfing strangers in rush. I'm sure you understand. We can play rush tonight if you want.
