"Uhm there is no 'join squad' in the hell do you find your group?! I clicked my squad leaders name all it said was 'send message' and something else..I could'nt spawn on them...really???!??"

There is a massive difference between the game being broken and someone not having looked at the spawn/deploy tutorials.

Bah, Humbug.
Looks like they ripped off the BF3 menus.
Just watch, this game will be garbage.

Good to see a BF3 dev on Blues. Shouldn't you be off making mediocre maps that you can then charge for as DLC?

"This game is basically CoD with few zombies thrown in now

[rest of rant snipped]"

Still waiting to experience that, and been playing daily for the last 3 weeks.

Tried other servers? Tried EU server?

It's not about luck, it's about locating the many many resources - youtube videos, websites - that talk you through in explicit detail how to install it.

It's a PITA.
It's an alpha mod for a PC game available via multiple delivery channels, and the PC game has a beta version available as well.
It's going to be a PITA.

On top of that, new folk seem to skim past the "you're not just connecting to the server, you're being tracked via a central DB that isn't part of the vanilla game" - which goes some way to explain the "waiting for server" messages that everyone (to start with) gets annoyed about.

Connection times for me over the weekend to servers in the US and EU (am in UK) varied between 1-2 mins to 10 mins +. That's from the "waiting for server response" stage.

The above will of course lead to being in a pitch-black night with no map/compass/idea where you are, and if you do figure out where you are then the first person who says "hi, yeah, I'm friendly, come over here" may just shoot you in the face for the can of beans in your pack.

So don't rush to get in if your patience is easily tested.

The whole "it should just work" brigade need to take their entitlement back to fixing the ending of Mass Effect 3, maybe.

Welcome to the internets, friend.
