This is the UG Battlefield 3 Thread!

Battlefield has always been a game that requires coordination between squad members, and I've noticed on BF3 in particular there seems to be a lot of new players who treat it just like any other FPS. So to make the game a bit more enjoyable for everyone, I made this thread for all us UGer's to get together and work together (or fight against each other) as squads. Having a full squad with voice communication always makes Battlefield games ten times more fun, not to mention that you'll often do a whole lot better if you've got three other guys working with you.

If we could all just post in the thread with our Gamertags/PSN Name/whatever PC users do, we could set up a UG Platoon on Origin easily enough and be connected through the Battlelog feature. You guys would just need to sign up for an Origin account at this address, continue to http://battlelog.battlefield.com/, and join the Ultimate-Guitar Platoon of your choice. There is a separate platoon for each platform; one for PC, one for Xbox 360, and one for PS3. Simply click the "Apply to Join" button at the top right corner of the page. The links to these platoons are the URLs at the top of the member lists.

Format for submitting names:
UG name; GT/PSN/Origin [platform name]


This is the format that the member list will be in, save for the platform in [ ] obviously.

For this to truly work well on PC, you'll probably have to add your platoon members as friends on your respective networks, and adding Origin friends for Xbox and PS3 probably isn't a bad idea either.

At the very least, add your Platoon Commander on both Origin and XBL/PSN if applicable.

Platoon lists and other OP edits will be updated regularly. If you have posted your information and notice yourself still not on the list, simply send me a PM and I'll get right to it.

Note: I will not be updating PSN and PC Platoons in terms of moving members from the NA to Approved lists, unless you post in the thread saying you have been approved.

If anyone has any other suggestions, just reply to the thread and I'll see if it can be implemented.

Cheers!

Alrighty, but someone else is going to have to make the PS3 and PC ones, just because I don't have either of those platforms. Who wants to step up?

How do you set up the battlelog i have a PS3

Create an origin account and link to your PS3 account I guess. I'm not sure. I had the beta on PC and PS3 and it was already done for me somehow.

Whoever makes the PS3 and PC Platoons, link me to the platoon and I will make you head of the platoon. The Platoon Commander, if you will, where you are free to make changes to the platoon so long as you notify me somehow so I can edit them into the OP (if neccessary).

I'm going out for an hour or two now, so when I get back I'll add any more applicants, and hopefully someone will have made a PS3 and PC platoon. I was going to sign up for a PSN Name myself, but their servers are under maitenance. However, if anyone can tell me if their's a way to sign in as a PC user (even though I don't play it on PC) that would make this a lot easier.

Well **** me

Can you be a part of several platoons? If so, want to try to get the members of your platoon to post in the thread and join this one as well? You guys can still go off and do whatever, but I just wanted this thread to be a larger collective of all the UG dudes.

I just checked an I'm very sure platoons are by platform. When you're creating one it says it will create it for "this soldier and this platform" meaning your active soldier and it's platform. I'll make the PS3 one in a second.

I find that the maps look a lot better. And the destruction is way cooler.

Game is far more fun to play as well. The only map I don't really like is Canals

It's actually quite a bit different. Unlocks per weapon, different destruction, different gadgets, different feel (for better or worse), and some idiot decided it would be a fun idea to switch which side of the D-pad drops a healthkit/ammobox (and I am going to kill their family). Jets. Three classes of helicopter (scout, attack, transport) rather than 2. Same for tanks (transport, infantry-fighting, full on fuck-off Abrams-style tank). Prone. Entire new class in the Support class.

Yellowfrizbee is my ps3 tag and my battlelog username.


****in A-91 and an IRNV scope and I am one happy mofo. Just now started trying to learn jets a little. Its really fun, but they always bail out when I disable the enemy jets in a dog fight, so I never get any actual kills it seems.


Whenever I lose in a dog fight, I always own them with my stinger as im parachuting to safety in the air....they never know wth happened.

Yeah, first of all switching the D-pad button for healthkits pissed me off as well.

I definately immediately noticed substantial differences in this one from BF2. The maps for one, aren't as 'open'. You could be in Africa Harbor and have a pretty good view of the whole map, only really a few maps like that here, though they all are still good. Theres still places to kind of just chill and be by yourself, but they are harder to find in this game. (My dad plays on my account and usually likes to do this or he gets murked.)

He was really actually pretty good on BF2, but these maps are too high paced. Also the setup of the game is difficult for him. You really have to utilize all the features given to you to excel and he just wants to shoot people. Setting up was easier on BF2.

The tall structure in operation firestorm is awesome. They had one just like that in the old pc games, I nostalgia'd hard.

I think this game is a lot more fun then BF2 if you are good at it. If you aren't able to keep up, then it sucks. Unlike BF2, where if you weren't that great you still wouldnt go 1-11. (thanks for messing up my k/d ratio, dad.

Also, Norsh-whatever Canals is a great map for team deathmatch.

Oo yeah, Xbox-TheArab73
