If the numbers and interest are there then yes, TOG will have a BF Heroes division
I finally got a key through a friend this weekend. I played a bit and enjoyed it. It's a fun pastime. To log interest in the game and to see if we can muster a big enough group to qualify for a forum, I started an XFire group. I know you all are thinking; "What's up with Hans and all these XFire groups?".:w
The Older Gamers - Battlefield Heroes (togbfh)
PS-As always; Everyone in the group, gets full group rights to the group. Hopefully this helps spur growth.
BTW- My first toon is called "DirkGently".
got my email, woohoo I registered as TOG-Bulgroz.
Mine turned up.
Toot, I'm in. Username = noobhat
Finally got my key, got in today for a bit of a look around... hmmm...
I got in recently, played a bit, hated it, left. Don't intend to go back.
It's like a "My First Shooter" game. A boring rehash of the now very old and very tired battlefield formula with casual flavoured I-don't-have-to-aim kind of gameplay.
You know you did sign a NDA to get into the beta, that post violates it Drac. Just saying.
Nothing I've said about the game can't be seen in vidoes already released by DICE. I said I'd probably hate it earlier in this thread before I was in the beta. Not saying anything different now akin to others that have said "it's fun".
According to the NDA, People in the beta are only allowed to state two things.
1) The fact that there is a Battlefield Heroes Beta Program.
2) The fact that you are a member of the Battlefield Heroes Beta Program.
Now I'm not say you can't have your own opinions, I'm just saying be careful.
For anyone interested, one of the BFH server hosts are giving away beta keys, just enter a valid email address and you should get one instantly

Got my key.. Username = Queeg_500
The screenshots look better than the actual game-play footage....given it is Beta. However it looks like a TF2 wannabe, doesn't really appeal to me when I have the option of TF2.
TF2 really has very little in common with BF:H other than smiler graphic styling. I'd say more about it but as you all know... The NDA.
Remember there is the official web-site and forum for plenty of info!

I've been in the beta from almost the start.
OK classic gameplay I get but (NDA permitting) what are the "brand new innovations"?
PM if you are concerned about the NDA.
The games economic system is based on Korean MMO's (this is all public knowledge so we should be OK with the NDA) and this is apparently the first time its been tried with a western game with a western audience.
Or they may be talking about certain "brand new innovations" in the Battlefield series as a whole.
Pm to follow.
I just got a beta key, so I'll be checking it out. I'm pretty new to FPS games in general. I played around in Star Wars Battlefront 2 and liked it, fiddled with Unreal 3 some and liked it, and Left 4 Dead was pretty cool too. Need to check this one out and I've also been tempted to try out TF2 since I always hear of people mentioning it.
