The Wednesday Event

 

Wednesday 16th May

8PM

 

Welcome back to another Battlefield 3 Wednesday Event Spectacular.

 

You can tell your parents that our parents say it's ok for you to turn up!

 

Bit different this week.  We have been given a loan of EA_ActionMan's custom server for the evening and I'm wanting to give it a shot, see how it works for y'all.

 

Here's what you're gonna need to know:

 

Server Name: '@EA_ActionMan Community Server'

Date: 16th May

Time: 8pm BST

Password: forumfun

 

Now this server is always up and running and at the moment it's just ActionMan and Vissy who are admind and you know we're not gonna kick you out when you shoot our helicopter out of the sky so come on in!  Search for the server by it's name and add it to your favourites, use it whenever.

 

Bear in mind though that before 8pm on Wednesday we're most likely gonna kick you all out and add the password, but you're welcome to come back in!

 

We're keeping it simple for this first time, no DLC or funny options (apart from those AM already set).

 

I may also have a little something to giveaway as long as the results of the games appear on Battlelog!

 

Wednesday at 8pm.

On the massively losing side as usual, but the disappointment was tempered by two factors :

 

1. Good banter with LA, Cim and spacysam and

 

2. taking out two choppers with tank rounds within 5 minutes of each other.

Good banter, and it was great hearing you cheer after those chopper takedowns. :D

Cheers for the games.

I can't say that I enjoyed it TBH.

 

Teams weren't balanced, Back 2 Karkland gear was locked and most of all, no XP

 

And whoever was in the Jets and Heli's on Caspin Border with that thing that makes stingers not lock on-  That Perk is completely overpowered

It's not that overpowered. It leaves you completely open after it wears off.

 

 

Unless you dive straight below radar.

Good games tonight especially rush on kharg, don't know how we managed to win that one.Think we were down to 2 tickets kind of made up for the humiliation we suffered in most of the other games.

There should of been an admin switching people around to be honest.
But when a server is private it becomes unranked. I assume it's to stop people boosting.

ECM Jammer isn't overpowered, it takes a while for it to be available once again and once a rocket is successfully fired it can't do anything against it (other than try to evade it).

Using a SOFLAM/Javelin (or any other guided shells) combination is way more effective, even with just a SOFLAM would be good in keeping enemy helis away from doing circle runs (unless you're against a really good pilot and gunner team).

One thing that's overpowered is the Heavy Barrel and M26 Mass/Dart Combination. ;)

That was myself and Animavore.  Its not overpowered,  it was teamwork - which beats all and always will.  He used ECM,  passive below radar and expert flying,  I used flares only a couple of times.  

 

You'll never defeat that alone.  It takes teamwork to beat teamwork.

Enjoyed my 3 games :)  

 

Thanks to Yaster for arranging the event and reviving me when I got sniped.  @fski I was so close to getting your tags but your mate saved you lol.  @ Shadow sorry for teamkilling you in the chopper :(  I only launched a TV missile and we spontaneously exploded lmao,  I thought they'd fixed that bug.  

 

Well played all.

Awesome games. Can't believe we lost on Kharg Island, it was so close!

 

Also can't believe LA started using the Dart, very dirty play!

Deadly games. Had a flawless attack chopper run on Caspian with LSD.

 

Not so hot on Firestorm. First I hit a lampost and then someone jet-rammed me :Shame:

 

 

Wasn't happy on Kharg. I was marking everyone with surveillance but at the crucial moment when you came through the container yard the spot button stopped working for some reason :(
