What is Battlefield 3?

Battlefield 3 leaps ahead of it’s time with the power of Frostbite™ 2, the next instalment of DICE’s cutting-edge game engine. This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built, delivering enhanced visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and incredibly lifelike character animations.

As bullets whiz by, walls crumble, and explosions throw you to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before. In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines where they will experience heart-pounding missions across diverse locations including Paris, Tehran and New York.

The Toys

Weapons
There are over 50 weapons in Battlefield 3 But each weapon in itself can be tailored to
wildly differing play styles and combat roles. Basically, each main weapon in the game has three accessory slots, where you can attach weapon accessories you have unlocked.

The unlockable weapon accessories include an assortment of optics, suppressors, bipods, barrels, underslung grenade launchers, underslung shotguns, foregrips, flashlights, laser sights, and more.

Vehicles
With over 20 drivable vehicles in multiplayer spread over 12 classes, you will find your personal favorite whether you prefer to fly above the battlefield or stay on solid ground. Some of the vehicle classes include armored transports, infantry fighting vehicles, main battle tanks, scout helicopters, attack helicopters, fighter jets, and attack jets.

Vehicle customization in Battlefield 3 is just as deep and tactical as the weapon customization. With over 80 unlockable specialization upgrades spread over the different vehicle classes, there is plenty of room for you to tailor your rides to fit your needs.

Game Modes

Conquest:
In Conquest, two teams fight for control of a number of flags by being the dominant force in the vicinity of each base. Capture and keep control of a majority of the flags and the enemy team will bleed tickets. Killing enemies will also reduce their ticket count, and the first team to run out of tickets loses. Conquest mode allows 64 player servers with a multitude of vehicles and aircraft on offer.

Rush:
An objective based mode, the attackers have to arm and detonate pairs of M-COM stations in each area of the map to unlock the next area and the next pair of M-COM stations. While defenders have an unlimited amount of spawn tickets, attackers only get new tickets every time they destroy a pair of M-COMs. If all M-COM stations on the entire map are destroyed, the attackers are declared the winning team. If the defenders manage to deplete the attacker’s tickets to zero (by killing them), the defenders are declared the winners.

Team Death Match:
In Team Deathmatch, two teams of 12 players each duke it out on tight knit maps with a distinct infantry focus – there are no vehicles available in Team Deathmatch. For that quick instant action fix, this is the perfect game mode.

Squad Death Match:
Squad Deathmatch is a larger and more dynamic variety of deathmatch that also features the inclusion of an Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV). The IFV can help break a deadlock, as long as you keep it alive with solid Engineer gameplay. The 4 squad setup means that there is a constant battle throughout the game to gain and maintain the lead. Up to four squads go head to head against each other and the first to reach 50 kills wins.

Squad Rush:
Squad Rush is an extremely tight duel between two squads that borrows the main rules from normal Rush, but in a much more intimate setting. In Squad Rush there are only 2 bases with 1 M-COM station per base, meaning that every M-COM taken or defended in Squad Rush is vital to the victory or defeat of the game. There are no vehicles in Squad Rush, so it’s all down to your infantry fighting skills.

The Social Side

TOG’s greatest asset is its members and the social interaction between its members is an important part in making this division a place people want to visit on a regular basis.

We try to cater for members who either like a competitive or social environment with regards to their gaming. This could mean Ladder Comps, Shotgun or Knife nights to keep members entertained.

TeamSpeak plays a significant role in this aspect and its use is encouraged in the division. It may be a good place to have a laugh with friends or Squad up for some teamwork in-game. Its also a very useful in contacting a Server Admin to make room on the server.

Not a TOG member and would like to join up? Are you 25 or older? See the Barracks in the forums for more details.

Nice one C4 :)

All I can say is Crap, Why waste money on this crap

Would the division only cover pc gamers or would there be anything for xbox?

Cheers.

You would probably be better served by checking out the console section in TOG, but you are more than welcome to hang out with us :)

There is a thread there regarding Xbox BF3 members

http://www.theoldergamers.com/forum/games-talk/

Thanks for that, unfortunately my PC needs upgrading to play on that. My poor old 4870 card can’t cope with the beta, my dual core processor is also not very supportive. You might here back from me though!

Sweet! Can’t wait!!!!!!!!!

Nice information sheet

If people are interested in playing the game and worried about their PC performance. I recommend downloading the open beta and giving it a go. I did, found out that 1. the game looked great and 2. found out my PC is too old for it. Sniff.

Yes Dressy, agreed. BF3 ‘retired’ my 4870 gpu, and is about to do the same to my cpu, once my q9550 comes through the post. I’ve struggled with the keys to be honest, being mostly an xboxer, I need to map them to my nostromo.

Looking forward to some intercontinental (should that be incontinent?) matches with you all. Let’s resurrect the Titans cup!

So how do we get onto the TOG servers…

And get into Team Speak! The game is much more fun with everyone on there!
