BFBC2 With Friends

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey guys me and my friends... are porting from console to PC games awesome on PC.. But ofc from console its easy to team up with friends and get a game going... But on pc its next to impossible to get in a game with 4 friends and be on the same squad... there is no squad gang up like in console... by chance am i missing something? and dear god I personally hope they have some type of better system in BF3 when you plan to play with 4 friends.

I play with the same group of friends all the time. We just wait for spots to open up and switch teams. Sometimes it takes a game or two...is that really game breaking?

Wait, you can definitely switch squads/teams during the game, so just find an empty squad with 4 slots and you're set. Just don't join a full server.

Kind of off topic, but does anyone else notice the horrendous hit detection in BC2?

Yes i do.

And yeah it is in comparison to console where you don't have to do that. And the game slaps you and your friends all in one squad / team for you. IMO that's a nice feature.. personally I find waiting for a spot to open to be a little tedious / silly. . But its one of the growing pains of coming from console to PC... IMO. and I stress in my opinion because i don't want a console war thread [I am well aware that their are plenty trade-offs good/bad]. Seeing as to how this isn't a problem for the pc community I suppose that there will be no fix for this in BF3 sucks but it guess it will grown on me.

Being automatically teamed up isn't possible as it would ruin team balance. That's my guess. Just like how COD forces people with same clan tags on different teams if possible. Keeping game balance in public games has higher priority than some friends that want to play on the same team.

Wow so it's like a complete opposite in console youre more or less encouraged to play with friends however on PC... They avoid letting friends join up together intentionally.... I understand maybe auto balancing after A game where it's totally needed..... but that's just a little sucky... If anything IMO that's a broken system clan buddies play on vents and mumbles... This is how we get stupid games where you're teammates are telling the other team where you're at. Battlefield pushes a squad system but a horrible VoIP.... When I think of squads I think of me and 3 buddies who have our game planned out and want to play together as a squad not throw me and my buddies in a game where we are all mixed matched talking on a vent for no reason... Does no one else do this nor want that?

Hmmm... Well, no, we're not discouraged to play with friends, we're discouraged to ruin game balance, but rather compete. I've mostly played COD with friends and when you're a competitive player, you'll wreck a team all by yourself. Put 2 of those in the same team with voice chat and you've got instant rape (yes, I've killed off lots of servers with one of my friends). Those 2 players on different teams will instead compete and most likely make for a fairly even match. Regarding friends telling friends about enemy positions: Well, yes, it happens, but it's rare(ish) in pub games. Remember, game devs optimize for pub play and gamers on pubs generally don't have good voice comm (if any), so it's not a big issue. Also, people often want their team to win, so not all people tell where the rest of the players are (since that'll lose them the round).

But yes, we all want to have a squad of coordinated players, but that's often an unfair advantage, seen from a pub perspective.
