    Default I have some more......

    ......yes, you guessed it, Battlefield questions.

    Do I need to set any region/server options on battlefield?

    Up to now, I have been playing random online matches, where it seems to be a big free for all.
    In local squads, do you use any kind of game plan or tactics or is it more of the same?

    Thankyouforyourpatience.

    Try to join on locals that are on your friends list.

    You can do this either through "Friends" i think by pushing the back button, or go to the server browser and hit RB to show servers with friends on, look for a gap, or join a queue.

    If you manage to get into a game with locals, check if they're in a party, join said party if there's space. That's how most of us communicate, in a party as opposed to in-game chat. Once in the party its just about talking (a lot of *** most of the time).

    Hope that helps.

    Change your regional settings to Europe only - these will give you the least latency.

    I only play with 3 or so other locals - we play Conquest mostly - and we don't use any real 'tactics' other than capture all the flags and don't die. There is a lot more teamwork, eg. reviving and resupplying, but any tactics that are used just come from experience of what works to stay alive and capture the flags.

    Add some of the more active local BF3 players, like DTF or T4HA, and join their games - they seem to sometimes have majority local player games. When you get in a squad with some, make sure you are in party chat with them to communicate with each other. Don't bother with T3C9 players, they're dicks.

    All basic stuff really.

    European servers have the lowest pings to connect to, you'll generally find 3 to 4 BAR servers under European.

    You get 3 Server Modes:
    • Hardcore: A tougher game where you have no HUD, your health doesn't regenerate and getting the jump on an enemy guarantees you a kill.
    • Normal: What you're used to. Core servers with complete HUD, regenerating Health and lots of USAS-12g Frag rounds flying around.
    • Infantry: Exactly the same as Normal, just no Offensive Ground or Air vehicles.


    You get 5 Game Modes:
    • Conquest: Here you assist a team in capturing and holding spawn points on a battlefield. Each spawn point (Flag) you have more than the opposite team drops the enemies points (Tickets). Every kill removes an enemy ticket and every revive restores one.
    • Rush: In this mode you have an Attacking and a Defending team. The Attacking team starts with limited Tickets that work the same as in conquest only there are no spawns to capture. Here the attacking team must blom up a series of M-Com Station sets to win. The defending team has unlimited tickets and must make sure the Attackers dont destroy the M-Com Stations.
    • Team Deathmatch: What it says on the box. The first team to reach the required amount of enemy kills or has the most kill when the timer runs out, wins.
    • Squad Deathmatch: Same principal as TDM, only here you have 4, 4 man squads pitted against each other. The squad to either reach the score limit or have the most kills when the timer runs out, wins.
    • Squad Rush: Boosting heaven for unfavorable types. Same as Rush, only here you have one squad of 4 men pitted against another squad of 4 men.


    Everything else is self explanatory.

    As all have said, hit your start button in game to see where what maps the folk on your friends list are playing, join game, join party - Have fun!

    Playing on your own when there's no-one to communicate with can be ok if you're wanting to bugger around or trying new stuff out but it gets mostly frustrating when you see some of the crazy, noobish stuff some people do.

    Besides, all the SA people here (except me - I suck) are bloody good at this game and you learn tons and enjoy yourself while playing with them!

    PS: What is your GT?

    The biggest difference between joining some friends in a game and doing a random quick match is that it's much better to be able to chat to your squad and work together. Even if your tactics don't go further than saying things like "Look out to your left! Someone just killed me from there", "Chips for the sniper on the roof at 3 o' clock", "Crap, I'm dead, someone revive me!", "I need ammo! Gimme ammo!", and stuff like that, it's still a way better game than just running around by yourself. Even better if you can come up with a strategy. It's a game made specifically around teamwork, and it rewards you for working as a team.

    Stunt and Potty helped me out in pre-BF3 days when I bought BC2 to prepare for the epicness of BF3. Much respect and thanks to you both chaps.
