Default BF3 Squad Names and Interest in Comp Squad

Hi All.

Given how long it took for us to agree on names and shuffle people around into squads for BC2, can we start this process for BF3 now, before BF3 is released? This way, when released, we will already have most of the back-end work done, so we will be ready to get into some comp ladder games from the start.

Also, this is sorta "down-time" for many of us, waiting on BF3, but still kicking around on BC2. The forums are rather quiet. So, why not leverage this time to get TOG sorted for BF3 squads? At the very least, would get TOGGers pumped for BF3, some forum activity, and a bit of "admin stuff" we would rather not do when BF3 is playable out of the way now.

Apart from the actual squad "skill-testing", we should be able to get most stuff sorted now? Then have the skill-testing after release, when the time is right?

If people are already working on this behind the scene and more politics involved than I am aware of, my sincere apology in advance for this post (was not aware). However, if this is not being worked on, I am happy to help manage this.

Thoughts?

I'm happy to be involved in this, but I imagine a DC for the division is the very first thing we'll need before anything else can be decided.

I have raised this issue (the need to get things happening quickly) in the HQ and have been assured a DC will be appointed well before the game is released.

As mentioned, the first step will be getting a DC assigned. So I guess the first thing we can do is ask yourself, do you wish to apply for the DC position?

Once the DC is assigned we can move on from there and I'm sure this will all be sorted prior to launch (come on OCT....hurry up and get here!!!!)

What is the salary? Super? Any holiday leave? Soz, got a full-time job, that pays. All the thanks and respect for all DC's - the time they invest is very generous, but not a second hat I can wear at moment. Maybe when I retire.


Thanks for update.

It would be great to get a Kiwi sqaud up and running, so we can have practices earlier in the night! (yes, I am a wossie and like my sleep!). Also kicking smashing Aussie squads would be fun as well........ (though it may be like taking candy from a baby, or like being Samoa and playing them in rugby...)
