[PG] Battlefield 3 Will Return to In-Game Squad Management - Page 10

post #91 of 98
so glad to hear they are fixing this. very annoying to not be able to join your friend's squad. they can fix the squad jumping by setting a time limit before being able to join another squad if it is during the round.

To have squad management in bf2 and to completely remove it in bf3 would be hurt!
Damn...I can't wait...I need to take my mind off BF3 after the 10th....

What do you guys think of Origin? Although it isn't fully being utilized to its full potential, I believe it's heading the right way It just sucks now..that I will have STEAM and ORIGIN on all the time..

e) You join said squad
f) Said person hasn't died in the meantime while you were figuring all of this out
your point in bold is all you need to consider. You dont need to memorize people's names lol.

it happens. I see people switching squads all the time. I'd be lying if I said I didnt try it a few times. It works.

You can look at the map to see which player of which squad is closest by switching squads assuming they have a slot open. They kind of fixed it now that you can only spawn on squad leaders and not just anybody.

You can look at the map to see which player of which squad is closest by switching squads assuming they have a slot open. They kind of fixed it now that you can only spawn on squad leaders and not just anybody.
So, you have multiple squad with open slots, and you join each one to figure out which one has a guy closest to the objective? Ok, that makes sense as being a problem.

Fixed.

If they integrate Battlelog, I will order again. Not sure why this news didn't come sooner if it really was 'fixed' soon after the beta copy was finished.

If I were to speculate, I'd guess they integrated it very recently and are playing like they didn't make terrible initial design decisions to try and revive public opinion. Fanbois will assure me that I'm wrong and hoop and holler about it being a beta, but they've clearly never been part of a Blizzard closed beta. Those games *coughD3cough* are so polished during beta it almost physically pains me to play the BF3 beta.

Personally, I don't care when/if they fix the game as long as it's within two weeks of release. When I know that the Battlefield name brings what it used to, I will buy.
