Battlefield 3 Catch-All

I applied to the GWJ 360 Platoon.

At least I think my application went in before my connection to the EA servers was lost again for like the 5th time in 20 minutes...

New Nvidia drivers 285.62

Servers appear to be a 360 issue only..

Woot! I look forward to loosing the spotlight very shortly. Hyetal, I'm looking at you.

Hey, whoever runs the GWJ "platoon" i just requested to be in it with the username USAFBaller!

Looks like the server on 360 is cutting in and out. Might as well try getting on if you can.

BTW, give me a friend request if you haven't already, look forward to squadding up. I'll join the platoon when the battlelog site starts working again.

I can't get in anything.. hangs at joining.

Heh not sure how I managed to get on there.

We still use mumble?

I thought last night people were saying Vent, but I was logging, so I didn't get on to see.

I can join games but I barely make it halfway through and get disconnected.

I think I am waiting for the first real patch to play. It's a mess right now.

So much for a smooth launch. "Failed to connect to EA online" is pretty much a given on big EA releases.

So has anyone tried using the battlelog voice chat? I like vent and mumble and all, but sometimes it would be nice to have a smaller squad or team-specific voice chat.

I seem to be getting kicked off a lot. Anyone else getting semi-random disconnects?

On another note, any chance we can upgrade to a 64 person server?

Gotcha.

Server problems and squad matchmaking is no picnic either.

Got in for five minutes on 360. Then couldn't connect. Try again later.

Booooooooooooooooo.

I've used it with my brother a few times. Seems to work decent enough. Haven't tried it while in-game yet though.

What's BS, is that with these server problems, I can't even play SP.

Lame EA.. totally Lame.

I was just booted by the admin on the GWJ server. Can someone tell me why?

Could I get an invite to the PC Gamers with Jobs Platoon. The "apply" button doesn't seem to be doing anything. I'm "Nevin73" on Origin (naturally).

Did you install the plugin and restart the browser? That's what I needed to do to get it to work.

That did the trick, thanks. I had some issues where the updated plug-in was truncating the .exe from the update. I was starting to get pissed.

Are you serious? What's the message? I was just firing up the SP now.

Oh my. EA? Seriously. The same thing happened with Battlefield 1943 and BFBC2. At a certain point you have to anticipate demand better. Especially if you're trying to knock off COD.

Above and beyond the call... whenever this server thing gets fixed.

They may not have recognized your gamertag since you're new to GWJ. Not sure who admins it. Make sure you've signed up on the spreadsheet.

I really should have just kept my mouth shut about how smoothly things were going. Sigh...you task me EA, you task me.

Yep, your fault!

Servers are back up!

All ye who play wearing headphones, do you use the "headphones" audio settings? What if you have 5.1/7.1 headphones?

"War Tapes" is the best setting. I use Turtle Beach X41s (7.1 Surround Sound)
