  • Notice: Get in a squad, and get in teamspeak. :)

    Your participation is greatly desired.

    As of the patch (22NOV) YOU ARE NO LONGER AUTOMATICALLY ASSIGNED TO A SQUAD(good or bad doesn't matter). So make sure you find a squad and jump in. It was very frustrating to play today with OVER HALF THE TEAM in the "unassigned squad" channel.

    Also, if you want to run in my squad, you better be on teamspeak and communicating with me otherwise you are getting the boot.

    Friendly gaming as always,

    Re: Players not joining squads, I'm thinking that it's due to the servers being populated by randoms through Quick Match.

    On a related topic, what's with half full squads being locked by some TG'ers? Was this intentional or a bug? I've never seen TG'ers locking squads until today, it was very disappointing to say the least.

        No disrespect, but you obviously haven't been around since the BF2 and 2142 days. Locked squads were a regular thing. The difference is, you could always make more squads in those games. In this game, a locked squad under 4 players means that someone won't get to be on a squad in 64 player mode.

          Noticed the locked squad thing tonight, sent chat message via TS to squad lead, he didn't even know that it was locked. I would think that in most cases it will be unaware that they are locked.

            Yeah, I don't even know how to do it. Or even see that one is locked, other than that I click it and look for the Join button, and it's not there.

              If you are in TS, but down in you IHS channel with your friends, please dont join my squad. . . That is why I kept kicking you, you know who you are :P

              Talos, I think he is talking about all the players who were in the No Squad channel of each team, not the 20 people in the lobby.

              ... as for the locked squads. There is a button in the squad screen that only the SL can change from "Private" to "Public".

              I can understand if you are waiting for a 4th to rejoin after a crash, or if you a running a squad that you and one other are flying a chopper. But be mindful that you are ruining the game experience for other players who cannot get into squads because you have a locked squad. Small locked squads should be a no-no.

              Luckily, servers 2 and 3 have extra squads to be used. Server 1 has a problem when squads are getting locked. as it means players are left out in the cold.

                As a a unit, occasionally the 1st will do this. We often don't have 4 players though and open it up as soon as the players are in. Sometimes we are in our IHS TS channel as we form up and if we are on another server together we'll be there for gameplay. As soon as we are set in the TG server we switch to the proper TS channel.

                  Is the TS plugin still working after the TS update and BF3 patch, this may be the problem, or not.

                    The plugin is not needed for squad VOIP - it's all done automatically on the server.

                        I didnt mean to sound like a jerk with that comment, but I had to keep kicking a tagged TG IHS player who was in their channel instead of in the BF3 channels.

                        I completely agree, when Rockford is playing with us, we lock the squad so that when he crashes in five minutes he will be able to get back in. ONE thing that DICE did right is that people that get disconnected are able to join the locked squad they were dropped from, at least sometimes.

                        As Fallen said it is not TS nor the squad talk plugin, it is that the game does not automatically put you in squads when you join a server like it use to. It use to put everyone in the first available squad slot from the top of the list, now you actually have to find a squad every time you join a server.

                          So if the plugin is still working why are people in squads but not being auto moved into the right channel in TS by the plugin?

                            The only time people are actually in squads but are not moved correctly is when their TS name doesn't match their in-game name. This is an occasional bug with Punkbuster, and out of TeamSync's control. This can be corrected by temporarily changing your TS name to match your in-game name.

                            3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

                              You have the wrong idea about this thread. The new patch to BF3 does not automatically join you into a squad when you join a server.
