      Indeed. I am excited for squads getting together and kickin butt.

      I want to start a tips and tricks thread for the beta on the 27th so that we can share the knowledge and get players up to speed faster by the time it's in full swing on the 29th.

        the website "battlelog" is where the browser is (you launch the game from there)
        It has a feature where 4 of you can group together and join a server all at once, we need to test that to see if you go into the same squad and if you can choose the server you join

        DICE has put some teamplay tools in there, we need to test them out

          oh i didn't know that! That's awesome!

          A soon as we know how soldier names/origin names/battlelog names are going to work we should start a thread sharing the pertinent info so that members can be added all quicklike.

            If we really want to streamline testing, it's best to come up with a list of things we want to try (test cases), have several of us try it out, and post our results. It'll give us a more clear understanding of what works, what we can workaround, and what we need to mention.

              I got this from EA Support

              "How do I change my in-game soldier name?
              A key part of the Battlefield 3 experience is the social features and ranking provided by Battlelog. In order to keep things clear between your identity on Battlelog, your Origin friends list, and your in-game identity - the game uses your Origin ID as your soldier name. This ensures that the players you socialize with in Battlelog are identifiable in-game."

              http://support.ea.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5394

              From what I gathered ones master ea id is their origin ID and it says that it cannot be changed. I was upset because my origin id is not the name I play with. But after chatting with EA support I was able to change my master EA ID which seemed to change my origin ID, provided the master EA ID is available "(my first choice was not :(".

              I do not think that this was the best move, but if it helps keep that stats from blowing up like BC2 then I will not complain

                I agree with Brokeback, we should prepare to see what the final build of the game plays like and begin adapting then. It is nice to see people actually being positive for once.

                  I'd like to request that in the bf3 beta teamspeak channel all users have access to change the description.

                  This way we can edit the description to list which servers we are playing in even if an admin isn't around.

                    - there will be more infos the next weeks
                    - some comunity events are gonne come during beta

                    Remember, this is all translated from german over Teamspeak, so info can change/be mistranslated!

                    As was said earlier, we will be able to make a squad in battlelog and join a game as a squad which is very cool IMHO. i worry about team balance, but only a little.

                        I expect at least one of you to lock yourself in your house to get to level "over 9000" and kill us all with your gold, laser-guided RPG-Gustav with flash supressor, attached shotgun and x8 ACOG.

                        Will be good for our server if we're kicking for lack of teamwork/reserved slot.

                            Battlelog is like a Facebook page that tracks your stats. It is like your current soldier page where you check your veteran status. What you are used to is booting up the game, going through menus, then joining a server. Well BF3 works with you Starting Origin which then pops up your browser and you log into Battlelog with it. From there you see all your friends, look for servers, etc. Then when you are ready to play it launches the game which goes straight into the server. If you think it may seem like a dumb way to do it but it is no different than how games does it today. At least in code and programming wise. Visually it will seem like you are doing a lot outside of game to play. But trust me. It is very quickly how the game starts and it is not resource heavy. Since you are not loading a game and its entirety just to look for a server it is faster and focuses your resources soley on the game engine than have it be on standy by. (It's hard to explain but trust me ;)

                            I am currently on a C2D E8500, 4gb DDR2, and a 260 GTX. The alpha booted and played well on my rig.
