Re: Battlefield Talk (PS3)

Had some fun late last night or early this morning if you prefer with Shumway. Pretty close match and I was tired so not really doing too much. However I did take the tags of the douche camping leader on the enemy team.

The team balancing is probably the worst I've ever seen. They need to just remove it from the game because it never helps.

I don't think you gave it enough time myself. Now that I've gotten used to it I enjoy it, plus with the numerous unlocks/progression it has alot of replay value. Whereas I'm not too motivated to play BFBC2 since all I have left is to hit lvl50 which takes too long to do.

I still like to play BFBC2 just don't feel compelled unless you guys are squading up.

Played long enough to get to level 41...seems like a fair shake to me.

I don't really care about unlocks or levels unless I'm looking to get a specific gun. If I could have paid $5 to unlock all the guns in BF3, I likely would have paid it...just to not have to deal with that crap or play against guys who were simply better armed than I was.

I still like to play BFBC2 just don't feel compelled unless you guys are squading up.
Which we need to do soon.

I've been playing BFBC2 most nights for the last month and if you see me on, you're always welcome to join my squad. It would be a welcome change from what's been so much silence on the mic I don't wear my headphones, these days.

Uh-oh. Shumway passed me on the BF3 leaderboards.

Might have to get back into it. A little bit.

Shum! We should squad up!

Passed 2600 kills with the Carl Gustav in BFBC2 and it's so, so delicious.

Finding your way back to BC2...half as gritty, twice as fun...this pleases me.

Only took you 7 days to notice . Would love to play hardcore, too bad I can't nab your tags if we're on the same team .

I have just as much fun in BF3. For some reason, the highs are higher.

Re: Battlefield Talk (PS3)

Battlefield tonight. I need a squad, bastards. I'm tired of jumping into Vong's game only to get bumped onto the opposite team so I can get steamrolled by his douchewagon.

I'd also be interested in running some more of the BF3 co-op missions.

I joined up with Vong for the first time last night. Luckily I got put right into his squad. His MOB buddies were rolling pretty good. I think we only lost one round the entire night.

Re: Battlefield Talk (PS3)

Joined one of my brother's work buddies in a match. He and 9 other players had OFC as their clan tag. We won the majority of our matches, even being down 2 or 3 men most rounds, the OFC group was split evenly on both sides. I most commonly join up with Vong or TaeKwon from MOB.

Yeah I noticed. I joined you guys for a bit too. Sent Vong a request to squad me in... which was ignored! The nerve. The next map, I got "balanced" over to the other team. Which was down at least 2 guys from the very beginning and by 3 or 4 by the end.

I got Vong's tags right near the end.... because really what else is there to fucking do when your team's getting anal-probed up the base?

he said, "it's okay. we won." No shit you won, you fargin' prick because you and you douchemachine MOB bastards run the other team off the map. You could go sit in deployment and the still win the map. This is why I will never have a decent W/L ratio I play half my games against MOB even though I jump in on their team originally.

Re: Battlefield Talk (PS3)

Yeah, the "balancing" is definitely broken. Not sure why you got moved to the other team when all the MOB guys are level 50+ and for the most part they all got to stay on the same side.

I think squads get moved together when teams are "balanced."

Might have to put this back a day...headache...probably not in the right frame of mind...particularly for BF3, which infuriates me even under normal circumstances.

Re: Battlefield Talk (PS3)

Wow wtf is everyone doing tonight? Vong is off being a douche with MOB so I'm not joining that game. McD's game is full. And nobody else is on. Fun Tuesday. Looks like I'm going to bed.

Re: Battlefield Talk (PS3)

Reasons why I'm ready to quit BF3:

Tonight I suffered through a map where I would spawn and die before I could ever reach cover because a helicopter could swing around the Rush spawn point and mow everyone down. I went 1 - 16. The helicopter pilot went 42 - 1. This should not happen.

All I wanted to do was learn the javelin and I just couldn't get an opportunity to do even that.

Sorry Flip...had every intention of jumping on with ya...just wasn't feeling great last night...went to bed early.

If we can't get our shit together in RDR tonight, I'm up for coop BF3 missions or BC2.

Re: Battlefield Talk (PS3)

No worries, friz. On any given Tuesday there will be 20+ people on from my list and last night there was only 8. I should have just gone to bed when I first said I was. I was raging after trying to play against that helicopter.

Re: Battlefield Talk (PS3)

If you're getting tired of BF3, now is the time to do some rollin' in BFBC2. Seems to be plenty of people playing and the new player level is up and something working in our favor. I was never that good and I earned my last four of out five Ace Pins by around 1000 points and keep getting Gold Squads even when my squad is full of wookiees in the middle of nowhere (and on radio silence, no less). If that's not telling enough, I've even earned another three Combat Excellence Pins in the last month - and that's out of 18 since last February! Yeah, there are plenty of old Level 50 warhawks still roaming the streets of Arica Harbor (whatever you do, don't get on the opposite team of Murder4Fun) but it's reached a point where I'm finding decent populations in Conquest, Rush, and even Squad Deathmatch. The time to show up in full force and do some map wipin', dog tag takin', blow-it-all-uppin' BFBC2 action is now.
