Great day to have it! I would like to sign up. Fourover4 is my BattleLog.

Edit: I'd also like to partake in a Support class if there is one. Interested on learning a more efficient way to suppress for the squad rather than emptying entire belts into a certain direction.

Didn't realize this was the right thread, because apparently I can't read lol. Is there a class for that? No? Well sign me up for this class/these classes instead then! :)

We'll hold the Kit Specific classes as we get the material ready for each one and get instructors who can teach them. Definitely looks like there's enough interest to carry those classes though :)

Would love to attend, but where are they, and is it not for 360ers?

The classes are held in the Tactical Gamer University channel on our Teamspeak 3 server, which is towards the bottom of the channel list. I would say that the Basic Infantry course is open to console players as it is mostly fundamentals which can be easily conveyed by words. However, since PC is the community's dominant platform, in game segments are done on the PC and just about all courses are designed for PC players.

Sorry mate. You're welcome to attend for the basic segment if you like, but you won't be able to take part in the in game exercises and examples on a console.

It is happening at 9pm EST / 2100 hours EST on Saturday the 19th and again on Saturday the 26th.

If you want to participate in the course on the 19th, you must state so in this thread by tonight. Signups for the 26th will still be open until the 25th.

Oh phew good. I'm way too busy with Skyrim to participate on the 19th but I should be all free for the 26th! :)
Thanks for clearing it up!

EST is GMT-5 lat time I checked. I'm sure there'll be space for you though.

Tonight's class will be starting in a few minutes

-----EDIT-----

Tonight's class is canceled due to apparent lack of interest. The class on the 26th will still occur. Those students who did show up tonight will get preference for future classes.

It was 1800 EST, aka 6PM EST, not 9PM as lancer had put in a previous post.

Hi everyone. I came across one of the 1stMIP's BF3 videos and decided to register. I'd like to take part in these classes.

DamionRayne

I will try another class this coming Saturday at 6pm Eastern Time.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this weekends training. However, very much looking forward to one that I can. Like the previous poster (Yadnevik), I watched some of 1stMIP's videos, and joined this community earlier this week.

Then I picked up a few rounds in the metro with a squad. Had my best game to date following what I had picked up from the videos alone. Stayed in a support position, holding the six, dropping packs, and defibbing when possible. Still got 4 kills in one round in a support position, and learned a lot about squad movement just watching and keeping up.

Thank you 1stMIP. Looking forward to the next class.

what? I thought the class was at 9pm EST, making that 6pm PST here. I'm getting an oil change right now and won't be home until 4pm PST. Did I miss the class already?

Well we've been sitting here for around 30 minutes and no instructor or anything. We're probably dropping today :/

So I sat in the TGU Teamspeak channel since 3:58 PM PST and no one was there. Stayed for nearly a full 2 hours. Still no one.

I had a personal emergency arise unfortunately, sorry. We'll try again next week, as the same thing happened to me last week when no one showed. Again, it was 6pm Eastern, not 9pm, 6PM I've stated this multiple times, and I still had a personal issue I had to attend to anyway.

Next Saturday, 6PM EST.
