Battlefield 3 - Page 294

post #8791 of 16243
I am always up for a game but I am out of twon every two weeks and will be the 6th. Maybe next time.

As far as the maps go, they have been good. Just keep a good mix of CQ and Rush ie 2 CQ 1 rush 1 CQ then a back to back rush map. One suggestion, insted of team deathmatch, Squad team deathmatch. Might be a little more fun. If you really wanted to get crazy throw a infantry only map in there! (Not talking about metro, the game mode on a map that usually has vehicles

Just remember if you set SQ TDM you can only have 16 players on all maps CQ, rush or SQ TDM. I've thought about setting it's own map rotation though.

Hey guys! Just wanted to give you all some more info on my proposed match between [BAT] and [AVS], so here's the deal:

Tentative Date: Sunday, May 6th @ 3 PM Eastern Standard Time

Format: 5 rounds of rush, attack and defend. Winner will be determined by the total amount of MCOM's taken throughout the entire match.

Teams: 12 man roster, if you have additional members that want to participate, a rotating roster between rounds if fine (i.e. Shmoopy plays rounds 1 and 2, then drops to make room for hksvr4 etc...).

Server: Both [BAT] and [AVS] have their own servers, the [BAT] one is based out of Europe. I'm based in the East U.S. and I don't tend to have any lag issues playing on that server, but to be fair we could always schedule two different matches, one on the [BAT] server and one on the [AVS] server.

I PM'd Zath about this before announcing anything here on the AVS forums because I wanted to give him a chance to see if there would be sufficient interest amongst the AVS crew. So far it seems that [BAT] will be able to field a full team on the date and time I have suggested, so I'm hoping we can get enough of AVS able to play during that same timeframe.

This is just an informal challenge meant to be a fun match between friends, nothing too serious. We've had one clan match so far vs. the guys and gals from [QRF] using this same format, and it was a lot of fun. The entire match only took about 2 and half hours. Some of those guys aren't quite as experienced as the [AVS] crew is, so after that match I thought it would be fun to see if you guys were down for a little friendly competition.

Any questions or concerns, please post here and I'll be more than happy to answer...otherwise, looking forward to getting this organized!!

Cheers!

I"d like to participate on the AVS side, I'm probably available until about 6pmish EST

I still vote CQ and if its rush I don't care on the map.
post #8795 of 16243
Hey Lowgn, this isn't meant to be any kind of super-competitive match man, just an organized one is all. Once you get into the actual competetive realm, things tend to get more serious and therefore less fun, and that's not what we're going for here. This is just an informal way to try to get 24 people together to have some good times!!

I should be able to play if you need a slot filled (that's what she said).

Oh that's right. I'll try to make it.

Really us here at avs should try to set up our own scrimmages against each other now, as well.

Just depends on if the Bruins are playing that day.

Yeah, I should be in....if Lowgn agrees to play.

lmao ok ok I'm in
post #8804 of 16243
Unfortunately, I am part of the BAT squad for right now. If it works out that they have more than 12 able to play and AVS needs someone to take up a space, I would be more than willing to play.

It's not often when I am comfortable saying that i will play for the other team.
post #8805 of 16243
I'm in, but I'm not at all excited about it being rush. I feel like I'll be more of a liability to my team/squad if we play rush so if we have more than 12 people I'd gladly give up my spot to somebody who enjoys rush.
post #8806 of 16243
I'm in too. Sounds like it would be a lot of fun.

So thats right at 12. If more want to play, people have to leave etc.. we can rotate in/out between rounds. I'm sure there will be plenty of volunteers.
Still plenty of time before then to sort out the people and squads.

No worries man, I don't think anyone here likes to play rush.

coyote_5 - strategy? Just shoot anything that moves and the rest will fall into place.

What he said. More of put ppl in squads, then let the crazyness happen.

Speaking of which. How does everyone wanna do that. Just people that usually play together?

Atl- Forget that, several of us will be running around like we don't know what we are doing.
post #8812 of 16243
I might be around next Sunday to play a bit, not sure yet. Can list me as an alternate or whatever if you want.

Stragety = pointy end in red dorito face and roll Dice for outcome.

Seriously though I never even thought about squading up. Figured it would be the usual chaos. Would be nice to put some thought into it I guess. I've ran a lot of support lately but can run any kit and be mostly effective depending on the situation. Don't really have a preference who I run with everyone here is really reliable. I just need someone to spawn on so I can go do something stupid!

Strategy... we don't need no stinkin strategy!

I heard that the team chat option works, so at least we don't have to worry about not being able to fit everyone in the party.
post #8815 of 16243
I'll be running recon more than likely with my trusty SKS and TUGS if it matters for squad assignments. I don't care who I play with, I have fun with everybody here...
post #8816 of 16243
Hoping to be able to play tonight. It's just too hard trying to get a block of 2 hours or more on weeknights
post #8817 of 16243
So the object of rush is to push them back into their initial spawn area right? So no flags, yes?

I will be on tonight as well.

On another note, have you guys noticed how hard it can be for an attack chopper to destroy a soflam. Actually does anyone know if it is indeed impossible to destroy a soflam now with the attack chopper? Yesterday a guy and myself simply couldn't do it. Firestorm CQ on the roof of B, I mean we were right above it, over and over and over...right next to it...could not destroy it. Hovering 10 ft from it, firing everything we had at it. I finally hopped out and shot it with my M4. Ridiculous.

Oh and of course, just like everything else, tv missiles have changed. They are weaker. I'm of the belief that you can still kill an attack chopper with a one hit, only sometimes it appears that the hit just plain and simply just doesn't register. Nothing. You can now hit B and back out, which probably makes them more attractive (though I could be stupid and this could have been the case all along. But my main gripe here is that they fly different. Something has changed, with the dynamics of flying the damn things, and I don't like it. I found it to be more difficult now, even though at times it seemed to go straight for the target without much help. It seems less touchy, a bad thing. Less controllable.

I've also noticed that all the different choppers seem to handle differently, and just appear different while in first person as the pilot. IDK.

It's all a bit ridiculous that they keep changing the whole dynamics of every aspect of the game. On top of everything else I a lately relearning how to get a kill with all the different class's guns, or just a kill in general. Very frustrating. It's like the games engine has changed or something, idk.

Funny you mention this. I had the same problem last night on the same map. Only they put the soflam on a beam near C. You had to jump off the ledge and land on the beam to get it. My gunner couldnt lock onto it either with his guided missile. It was getting frustrating. A squad mate finally made it up and killed the sniper and his soflam.


Another note on the soflam and CITV, I thought I read that red Lock means either the soflam/CITV and yellow lock is a stinger. I ask because as the pilot I would have a red lock while the gunner shows yellow. Not sure what was what.

Open to suggestions for maps you'd like to use for [AVS] vs. [BAT].

Hey, Razor, do they want to play those again or do they want to play different maps?
