  • Friends don't join on friends

    Launch Battlefield4beta check who's playing, choose your best bud and press the join game icon next to their name. Seems innocent enough right? Wrong. Little do you know that not only have you inadvertently locked yourself into playing only in a squad with that person seriously hampering your ability to bring joy and laughter to all your other buddies the server, but you may have also torn that "friend" of yours from the warm embrace of the best squad he has ever witnessed into the lonely 2 man squad created by your join on friend. If you don't heed this warning you may soon find that the number of "friends" in your list is mysteriously diminishing and they no longer return your PMs. Friends don't join on friends and they don't let friends join on friends either. Join GAJOF today to help stop this silent killer.

    Seriously though, it stops you from moving to a different squad and if their squad is full it pulls them out to create a squad with just you two an locks it. So unless you have that all planned out click the server name below your friends name and press "join server" and then get in their squad.

      Had this happen to me yesterday afternoon. While its flattering to know I have a friend, it is a most annoying game mechanic.

          Wonder why I kept being stuck into TWO man squads later on.

                      If you go to OPTIONS > GAMEPLAY, you can set Squad with joining friend to off. This will stop putting you in a seperate squad.

                          Is this how we made an 8-person megasquad last night? As in, joining on a friend will put you in their squad even if they already have a full squad?

                          Friends pile on!

                            Apologies again for pulling you out of a squad the other night Namebot, I had no idea this was happening.

                            I always figured it would just dump you in the server on your friends team if they was in a full squad and it would then just try to squad you up with them if a slot became available in their squad.

                              Oh lord. Sorry guys, I'll stop.

                              So what's up with the mega squad ? Any relation ? I know I was in a mega once or twice, and I have been joining on friends a lot.

                              Edit: ....and since I crash all the time and rejoin.....I'm doubling up on apologies.
