BF3 EURO Tournament...thingy.

269 Replies 687 Views Created 13-06-2012

Hello you.

 

The German community guys have put together a BF3 Hardcore mode EU tournament, see here for details:

 

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Battlefield/Fun-Tournament-Battlefield-3-Community-Nations-Cu...

 

So really we need 12 guys to sign up for it and do their bit for the UK/ROI. Though I've been made captain (something I wasn't really aware of) I'm probably going to have to sit it out for two reasons

 

  • Work
  • I'm just not good enough at BF3

That said, it will probably be a lot of fun and all are welcome. A word of warning, the UK/ROI took on Italy in a BF3 event and they just grinded us up and spat out the seeds. It was a dismal result and it would be awesome, if we draw them, if we could exact some revenge!

hmmmm, not sure what's happened here. I'd set the mode/maps and the Polish leader siad they'd gone in and done something. It's not the wrong map and rush mode :(

hopefully get it sorted soon.

Yeah, a pretty miserable 2 rounds. 3 players down didn't help, but the Polish team had great air support & good tank drivers. 

 

Is that us out of the tournament now? I can't take anymore of an ass whopping haha.

 

Computer froze after the 2nd round to :(

Really needed those three extra players. It made it easier for them to scatter us. There was Polish players going unchecked everywhere.

 

Good games though despite the struggle.

so wait, it was 9 vs 12?

 

BS! That shouldn't count as a win at all, First the french cheated, now the polish are dead cheap claiming victory on an unfair advantage!

Your being a bit of a sore loser mate, it wasn't the polish's fault that our team was undermanned.

Yeah we were kinda beaten up again tonight, was getting very frustrated, lots of expletives. I suppose being down 3 players didn't help but they used the air support very well. One of their players is on my friends list and he didn't gloat too much.

apologies for the chpper piloting kev - I think it was you in with me.  when i got in i didn't think i'd be the pilot. i have no idea how to fly those things well at all.  I'm surprised I got us over to the other side of the map tbh.

 

we got shot down which prob saved my embarassment as i was heading for the trees just before that anyhow :smileyvery-happy:

I was in a chat with the Polish leader and he was saying well done to us all - even though we only had nine they respected us for playing the game and trying our hardest.

 

Was always gonna end in tears really but nevermind - we gave it a go :)

 

They were good players as well.

The Polish played well mate,  I wouldn't deny them the victory they earned it.  Plus they didn't complain when I accidentally crashed into their chopper with the jet.  I pulled up too late and they pulled up at the same time so we all died.  

 

Jet ramming is against the rules and they could have called foul but they were sporting about it and let it go.  

 

We don't have a great track record at winning tournaments,  because we all play for fun and our opponents are often serious clan players who train for the event.  I'd still thank fski for inviting me back onto the team after I quit,  I enjoyed the game.

 

We had a fair start this time and a good effort was made by all.
