  • Greetings From a Long Lost TG'er

    Hey all!

    Looking into getting back into some recreational gaming, and was wondering if BF4 was worth the buy. I have a few quick questions for this group.

    Those that remember me know that I love squad leading/commanding and dominating the battlefield with awesome squads. Does BF4 follow in the footsteps of 2142 with good squad play?

    Are there still plenty of people that play this game, or am I too late to buy it and get into the action?

    Hopefully you all have some encouraging answers. I miss gaming with my awesome TG'ers.

    Ciao for now!

    BF4 is close to 2142 in terms of squad play if you participate. The only thing that isn't in the game is the ability for the squad lead to speak directly to the commander on demand. The commander can pop into a squad and speak to the whole squad, but no channel for SL -> Commander

      Well, that kind of sucks! It was always so better than to sit in the map and harass my SL's over comms. :P

        Commander to SL is fine, you just can't initiate SL to commander on your own

          Cmon back. Server is filled to capacity most nights and it's the people playing more than the game features that matter. Bf4 has been loads of fun. Much better than BF3 in terms of teamwork and coordination.

            Never played BF3 either. I would pretty much be jumping from SL'ing/CC'ing in BF2142 to doing the same in BF4. How bad of a learning curve do you think I would have getting used to the differences?

              That's essentially what I did. Honestly it's not all that different in terms of squad play. Obviously the games are different from each other, but there are many similarities. The TG spirit I grew up on is definitely still there.

              One of the main differences (that I don't like) is that you cannot set specific places or points as orders, it has to be directed on a flag. For example on Camp Gibraltar, a defending squad would often mount up at the main wall to stop the buggy run so the SL would set the arrow order on the wall, telling his squad to stay at this point, not farther. You would have to have the order set on the flag behind the wall in BF4.

              Commanding is a bit different from 2142 in that the commander is separate from the battlefield. You are not a soldier, you have your own dedicated commander slot/screen.

              I would recommend jumping on board. I've definitely had loads of fun with it. I wish they would bring back 2142, but I don't think that will happen any time soon, so BF4 it is.

                Have you ever played ARMA. Now that is a learning curve. BF4...not so much.

                  Grunt, let's not go too fast. If you go BF series to PR, then ArmA isn't too scary.

                          So you are stil alive.:D Good to see you oz. Been a very long time. Game is fine and can give you some nice feelings afterwards. Buy the full package and you won't be dissapointed. Probably won't see many old 2142 faces on, but the others are just as good.

                            Cat-and-mouse competitions where, unfortunately, this kitty doesn't often win! But agreed, some good late night games recently! :D
