This is the only thing i find annoying in BF3 is that you can only access the menu when alive... not when dead not when waiting for the next game to start.. i mean whatsup with that?

The only other annoying thing is that you can only change settings while alive but its not a huge deal as i have no intentions of changing the settings every time i play lol.

Joining through battlelog has shown no speed improvements. It is yet another thing that must be running while playing a game. stats should all be accessible in game. Honestly, if I cant view my own unlocks, awards, and rank in game, thats ridiculous. Voice chat is done on teamspeak so that eliminates that for me. I only chat with xfire or steam. If I have them as a friend on battlelog, I have them there, and at least xfire will show in game, if I even decide to reply.

They will fix the settings so you can change them without spawning. They did the same thing with bad company 2.

Battlelog is simply a compiling of all the things that could and should be implemented in the actual game menus themselves. None of us get why you are so accepting of it.

my guess is that the beta is goin to be way different from the final release. it seems like they either already have been working on a lot of issues or have several things developed and are seeing what the feedback is before implementing them

Wish they would have leaned the game more towards the way BF2 was and not BC2. Can't stand BC2.
post #46 of 98
I never played BF2, but I did play bc2. I hated the way bc2 felt, but it was an ok game. I never even finished ranking. I can say with all confidence, that bf3 feels absolutely nothing like bc2.

The person who asked the question never asked specifically about an 'in game' squad management... a 'mid game' management is what they asked.

In short answer form, yes you can browse and join squads through the squad screen and make private squads.
In short? Why be so obtuse? Why not simply state yes, there is a screen in game that allows you to manage squads?

My answer:
I am betting there is a squad management button that minimizes your game and brings you to the squad management 'screen' in Battlelog. From there, you can return to game.

I figured the second I saw you couldn't pick your squad something was wrong.. this game is about teamwork and if you can't play with your friends on your team wheres the teamwork..

glad they fixed this.

I agree. I'm not sure if it's a language barrier thing, but every time DICE representatives post something it's vague and indecisive.

If I remember correctly back to bad company 2 beta, there was no in game squad management then either, only because it was a beta. Guess DICE's answer wasn't clear enough for some people. If they make this an out of game option it would be completely stupid on their part. I think that feature will at least be in game. However, to be blunt, all the features in battlelog could be in game.
