Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Welcome to the BF3 thread! Here's where you go for discussion of anything Battlefield related, regardless of platform. Try not to get into any debates about Origin or EA or whatever other stupid shit you have an opinion about. Just talk about how shitty the FAMAS iron sights are and how MAV ramming and boosting is atrocious.
NEW DLC COMING IN JUNE
Weapons list for CQ within!
Battlefield 3 uses not the traditional in-game server browser of games past, but rather a new interface in a web browser known as Battlelog. Before you start off complaining about how this has completely ruined BF3 for you, wait just a second! Battlelog is very quick, clean, and to the point. It is very easy to organize and join your favorite servers, and the filters are effective and easy to set. Want to play 64 player Meatro? Three clicks and you can spend the next 1500 tickets shooting M320s into a staircase! Rather play an 8v8 Squad Rush server? Click, click, click, bam! You're playing with a group of friends to strategically overcome and capture your opponents and objectives!
Battlelog also utilizes a clan-based system for grouping together friends. They're called Platoons, and we have several! Amongst them are the 101st, 102nd, and 103rd Arcadians. In addition, there is an EU Platoon! The first two are full of players, but if you ask in the thread for one of the leaders of the 103rd or EU to invite you, you can join it easily. Here are the pages for each of the respective platoons!
We use mumble to communicate and chat whilst we play. Generally it's irrelevant bullshit, but we do occasionally try hard! Come hop in with us to play, or post in the thread that you're willing! We'll hop on and join you shortly if we see a call to arms.
The mumble and vent in the vent sticky are likely not what we are using. Mcdermott and Kakos have supplied us with VOIP mumble servers in the meantime. Here are the respective links. We're planning to use mc's for now, and thus here is the information.
