Totally agree Scar & Adam, the conversation was extremely unprofessional.
FP will be a loss to this site and frankly the lack of respect, gratitude shown in the transcript is appalling.

One by one long standing members are being forced to leave or have no reason to stay. Shame.

Another year... another recruitment drive. This time for "Killzone 3". PlayStation 3 players only this time, though, sorry.

Apply below. Thank you.

23 February 2010:

A number of HotUKDeals.com members have expressed interest in starting a "clan" ("squad") for the new first-person shooter video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE [DICE] (& published by Electronic Arts) for Microsoft Windows, PS3, and Xbox 360 platforms, "Battlefield: Bad Company 2".

Officially released in Europe at the end of this week (& already on sale in North American territories), the game is a direct sequel to the previously available "Battlefield: Bad Company".

This "Misc" thread is to collate the details of all those members who wish to play online & to record their platform of choice, their user name (PlayStation Network Id, Xbox 360 GamerTag, PC Screen Name), the days/times available to play, & to initially organise into one or more clans for each platform as required.

Subject to interest, & if the posts become too unwieldy to maintain, we may have to break-off into dedicated PS3, Xbox 360, & PC threads, but for now please add what you have to play on & when you are able to play. Please also add information about which in-game solider Class you would prefer to play (so we can balance squads with choices of "Medic", "Assault", "Engineer", &/or "Recon" [sniper]).

We need not seek officially matches against other (probably more-organised) clans initially but if we just swap log-on details so that we can communicate online & invite each other to games we are participating within then games will be easier to find & we can get to know each other's strengths & weaknesses... but most of all having fun playing alongside (or against) other HotUKDeals members.

Anybody who has pre-ordered the title may well have received their order already. If you have & wish to brag by posting a "Got mine" type comment, please do so (as it will 'bump' this thread back up to the top of the first page of recent discussions & may attract more members to enlist for duty).

Hope to see you on the battlefield soon...
---
If you wish to contact any of the players listed below, &/or exchange "Friend" requests on the platform of choice, please refer to HotUKDeals & include your own HotUKDeals member name in the accompanying message rather than simply sending a blank request (that may be deleted without confirming the "Friend" addition). Thank you.

"Frozen Dam" (Guerilla Warfare, Warzone, Operations)
"Akmir Snowdrift" (Guerilla Warfare, Warzone, Operations)

"Blood Gracht" (Guerilla Warfare)

Details of two of the new maps from the incoming "From The Ashes" Map Pack:

[ http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2011/06/17/killzone-3-from-the-ashes-map-pack-launches-next-week/ ]

Posted on 17 June by Aryeh Loeb – Producer, Guerrilla Games

Killzone 3 ‘From The Ashes’ Map Pack Launches Next Week

...Lente Missile Base, a Warzone map for 24 players set inside an abandoned missile base at the edge of the Kaznan Jungle. One of many outdated defense facilities abandoned after the discovery of nuclear Petrusite, Lente Base is slowly being reclaimed by Helghan’s strange plant life. But when warring ISA and Helghast forces stumble across the remains of the facility, they find that most of its systems are still operational. As both factions vie for control of the base, the facility begins firing its missiles – frying anyone caught in the underground exhaust vents…

...Mobile Factory, a Guerrilla Warfare map for 16 players set aboard one of the largest vehicles from the single player campaign. Part resource production facility, part moving fortress, the Mobile Factory is a strategic asset that both factions desperately want to seize control of. Combatants need to watch their step as a single mistake can cause them to plummet into the heavy duty scrap metal shredders at the bottom of the facility. Those looking to do some shredding of their own will be able to wield one of two portable miniguns found in the Mobile Factory.

DLC Pack 3 “From The Ashes” will be available from the PlayStation Store on 22nd of June for €4.99\£3.99. But that’s not all! Those of you new to Killzone 3 will be interested to learn that we’re simultaneously releasing the DLC Bundle Pack. As the name implies, this pack bundles the Retro Pack, the Steel Rain Pack AND the From The Ashes Pack – a total of eight maps – for the low, low price of just €9.99\£7.99. . Stay tuned to Killzone.com and the official PlayStation.Blog on Monday, because we’ll be posting preview videos of the other two maps in the From the Ashes Pack.

"Killzone 3" Ribbons

You gain additional points for killstreaks (at the end of the round/match).

The ribbons gained for killstreaks are as follows:

Bullet Damage (Earned by gaining five assists in one match) - Lasts the entire match

Grants a 25% damage increase for all bullet weapons. Explosives are not affected.

Faster Reload (Earned by gaining ten kills without aiming in one match) - Lasts the entire match

Reduces reload times for primary weapons (to about half the time taken without the ribbon).

Increased Accuracy (Earned by gaining five melee kills in one match) - Lasts the entire match

"From the hip" (non-sight/scoped aiming) is more accurate for all primary weapons.

Double kill XP (Earned when you complete an in-game objective) - Lasts 60 seconds

Doubles the amount of experience points gained for kills, & assists.

Faster Aim (Earned by gaining ten kills whilst aiming down the sight/scope) - Lasts all match.

Reduces the time taken to sight a weapon (to about half the time taken without the ribbon).


You do not gain spy planes that show the enemy on your radar, helicopters with mounted gatling guns, cruise missiles, "rolling thunder" bombing raids, dogs that run at you, or any other kind of weaponry.

Thanks for all of the responses so far.

I have added "rep" to each of you as a 'thank you' for your support.

PS3 players ("fanpages", "Firmsky", "flamingcarrot", "tony_dudz", "madeofstars"): I have just sent each of you (apart from myself, of course, & "flamingcarrot", who was already in my "Friends List") a "Friend Request" via the PS3 XrossMediaBar so we can meet-up & invite each other to games in an easy manner than hoping we turn up online at the same time. You may also like to do the same so that everybody is in your own “Friends List” too.

Xbox 360 players: May I suggest you also do something similar either by the LIVE.Xbox.com site, or within the console's Dashboard interface? Hopefully we can find another interested party to make up a squad of four for you.

PC players: Still only two of you... so we could really do with some more numbers but you can still look out for each other's Screen Names whilst playing in the meantime.

As the game is officially released in the UK tomorrow we may well find more people enlist over the coming weekend, so please keep subscribed to this thread & once we have played a few (hundred) games between ourselves we can start to challenge other teams to tournaments & matches (if you wish to).

Although, like I said initially, this thread is really just to swap user names on our consoles of choice in order to have fun. Please don’t think there is any pressure to compete.

Good luck out there & please report back on your own battles with hints & tips for playing each map if you have the opportunity.

Thanks again.

BFN,

fp.

I'll be on today and accept your request. Thanks for setting this up FP!

There is a great new trailer here:

New Bad Company Launch Trailer

Damn it, it makes me want to go and play right now...........must resist............must do some work!.................

Seriously though, the game is immense. Some stand out moments for me last night:

Night time level. Two guys driving in to to attack B on an ATV. I popped out into the road, sprayed them with my LMG - the ATV keeps on driving past me, just with two bodies slumped over it now...............;-)

Second great BF moment - Apache helicopter wreaking all kind of havok on Port Valdez. One shot from my RPG, drifts up slowly, drops a bit and bam! Chopper and three guys are history. I NEVER manage to hit the choppers with an unguided RPG, so that one was very sweet indeed.

Succesfully defending the tiny island at Isle de Whatever from the entire attacking force, choppers flying all over, jetskis zooming up, snipers on the hill. Could they defeat the might HUKD clan? (well, me and fanpages..........) Not a chance. Then we flipped around, attacked, and had them beaten in about 5 minutes - with a little help from the rest of the squad/team :-D


Tips for success?
Spot all the time - not only do you score a shedload of points, you help out all your team-mates.
Don't loiter around in the open - find some decent/less-destructible cover and work from it
Don't stay in one place for too long - no place for campers here, too many people to spot you, and far too many ways to die if you stay still!
Stick with your squad - you aren't going to get very far on your own..............

Hope to play later tonight (if I'm allowed!)

this game is 12 snipers vs 12 snipers its a shame as its ruining the game

I think that is indicative of the MW2 crew moving over to the game at the moment, thinking of their K:D ratio, and not trying to win the game. The number of people standing around doing nothing, whilst a crate needs disarming never ceases to amaze me. If you get a decent squad of 4 though, or even just 2 or 3, who actually move on the crates/targets, no amount of snipers are going to stop you (imho).

I will admit they are a pain, but you can usually work out where they are ('sniper hills'), and if you keep some cover between them and you, their sniping is pretty worthless. If you see one, remember to 'spot' them (select button) which will reveal their location to all your team-mates, and means they won't be there much longer!


for years i've said that any shooting game should limit thye ammount of snipers on a team ie as soon as 2 snipers are chosen it should lock out the option

That's not a bad idea. Shame that people can't use their common sense though, and see that there already enough snipers on the battlefield without needing their input.

Personally I prefer to play as Engineer or Medic. I can often outsnipe a sniper with a LMG anyway, if I know roughly where they are.......;-)

Hey - on 360 you need to press the 'back' button when there is an enemy in your sights to 'spot' them. If you are looking into a mass of jungle/trees, you can spam the 'spot' button whilst looking around to see anyone there. Even better, the triangle stays over their head for a few seconds, so you can track their movement :thumbsup:

Check this video, it has some great tips for playing BC2 - should probably come as a tutorial video with the game! ;-)

Check this video, it has some great tips for playing BC2 - should probably come as a tutorial video with the game! ;-)

Lol, you can't be any worse than I am, Im on a K/D ratio of 0.76 currently, that's roughly after 6-7 hours online time. I'm not too bothered about it.
It's one of those games that you can jump straight into and enjoy, so I wouldn't worry to much about how good or bad you will be. As long as your enjoying the game and having fun what more could you ask for.

I would agree that K:D ratio is not really important in this game (although it is nice to maintain a decent one still). More important are things like reviving/healing team-mates, spotting enemies, fixing stuff, and resupplying your squad/team, and just generally having a blast!

A large proportion of my deaths come when I am desperately trying to guard a crate, either disarming it or stopping it from being disarmed. At times like that you have to forget your K:D ratio and just throw yourself into the mayhem. I also tend to blow myself up with C4 lots when I am taking out tanks as recon - it is sure worth it though ;-)

..........I should hopefully be on later tonight, if anyone wants a game - probably after about 10:30 pm ish........
