  1. Hello Joe and your community, This post is in regarding the comment you make at 16:41 in your video on the Battlefield 5 beta: "Honestly, all the negativity towards Battlefield, more and more, I'm starting to see the light, and I'm disappointed that I didn't see some of this stuff sooner." Joe, I really appreciate hearing that comment. I'm very glad that you're clicking with some of what other people have been criticizing DICE over for many years. And this actually brings me a bit of relief. Years ago, when Battlefield 3 released and was found by Battlefield 2 players to be a total downgrade in content, scope,and depth of systems and mechanics from Battlefield 2, I registered on your forums and made my first post here, which was a thread talking about the state of Battlefield 3 and detailing all the many times DICE had sold out throughout their studio's existence and how over-simplified Battlefield 3 was compared to Battlefield 2. You deleted my thread and banned me from your forum. That was the first and only post I made on your forums until now. At that time, if you were someone that had never player DICE's games before they abandoned PC to become a console-exclusive developer for many years before returning to PC with Bad Company 2 and then Battlefield 3, you might not have understood the criticism and been more impressed with Battlefield 3 than long-time Battlefield players were. But, if you had gone onto DICE's EA UK forums (where many of DICE's developers regularly hung out and interacted with Battlefield fans) at that time you would have seen walls of angry, mocking, and critiquing threads over Battlefield 3. And, remember that the backlash and criticism against DICE over Battlefield 3 was so intense and overwhelming that DICE officially permanently shut down their forums to stop the deluge of negative feedback they were getting. And DICE developers haven't engaged with their community in a similar way since then. At that time, DICE were getting that negative feedback because of many of the things you're complaining about with the beta of Battlefield 5 which have been issues in Battlefield 1, Battlefront 2015, and Battlefront II 2017: The same trend of over-simplification and lack of depth was already heavily happening in Battlefield 3, and it ticked Battlefield 2 players off, a lot. Battlefield 4 was actually a pleasant step away from that downward spiral of dumbing-down DICE games - but, it only last for that single game and then DICE was right back at the intense dumbing-down with Battlefront 2015, then Battlefield 1, and then Battlefront 2. DICE is a studio that has hardly ever listened to its fans, and has more often chosen to spite them when they criticize the studio: Patrick Bach infamously stated "nailed it" about the Bf3 launch maps which were lacking detail and character and generally were very small compared to Battlefield 2's maps - which sparked memes of Patrick Bach meaning that DICE had nailed the coffin in the Battlefield series. And as people continued to complain about Battlefield 3's relatively-small maps, Patrick Bach semi-infamously retorted in an interview with "I actually prefer the smaller maps". I feel that DICE have not appreciated Battlefield or its fans, but have always tried to be obtuse with both. Here are some more examples of the chaos that went on at the EA UK Battlefield forums around the release of Battlefield 3: When a DICE manager chided the community on the EA UK forums saying that the DICE team had spent their summer making these maps for them, the community, not entirely undeservedly, pushed back and threw his appeal for token appreciation in his face. Noshahr canals was mockingly renamed Nosehair Canals by the community to highlight its small size. People posted memes showing an expansive terrain with mountains and rivers and fields, bragging about it being the largest map in Battlefield's history, but with a marked playable area inside that large space that's no bigger than the size of a baseball field, or even a closet - pointing out the disingenuousness of DICE's claim that Battlefield 3 has the largest map in Battlefield history, which is a marketing fib that DICE again pulled with Battlefield 1, and I think I read somewhere that DICE had once again make that claim regarding a Battlefield 5 map. If they did, my bet's that the map will turn out to yet again be small when compared to Battlefield 2's larger maps. At this point, falsely asserting that the new Battlefield has the largest map yet is a running false-marketing gag of DICE's. With Bethesda it's 'wide as an ocean, shallow as a puddle' , and with DICE it's 'largest map yet, with the smallest playable area yet'. And there was so much dissatisfaction over Battlefield 3, which was supposed to be a true full sequel to Battlefield 2, that EA and DICE just shut down their main Battlefield forums to stop it all. By the way, the real largest map in Battlefield history up till now is still going to be one of Battlefield 2's several huge maps, or maybe Battlefield 1942's El Alamein. Though, I suspect that it might be Battlefield 2's FuShe Pass: Regardless of which Battlefield game has the de-facto largest map, Battlefield 2 has many maps larger than anything in Battlefield 3, 4, 1, and probably anything that will be in 5. And to show that what is being criticized about post Battlefield 4 games was actually already there in full-force with Battlefield 3, here are many of the things that Battlefield 2 gloriously has that were sorely downgraded from in Battlefield 3: 6-person squads, and maps that were suited for having larger squads 7 classes limited sprint (not everybody wants it, but lots of us did when Battlefield 3 released, and I certainly still do - it adds tons of skill and strategy to the game, and creates more dynamics) squad-leader spawning only squad-leader controls to direct the squad (Battlefield 4 and 1 have a simplified, and I think clunkier take on Battlefield 2's squad-leader controls) more expansive team, squad, and communication controls all-around commander mode larger maps more maps more creativity, variety, and character within maps lots of maps with no non-cappable bases, or with only one non-cappable base (meaning there was actually a real, tangible goal to work towards, and a real point of victory and accomplishment or defeat in many maps - which in very satisfying to have) a variety of flag layout designs rather than Battlefield 3's strictly arena-styled layout designs faster, more nimble, and more thrilling aircraft that actually felt like a part of the overall game (in later Battlefields, air-play is almost hermetically-sealed into a separate bubble from the ground fight) more vehicles in general, and maps that could better accommodate vehicle play It seems pretty obvious that Battlefield 3's severe design downgrade in size, scope, and complexity from Battlefield 2 was for the sake of console hardware limitations and the console audience which at that time were almost exclusively used to games heavily geared towards simplicity and casual playing. And because of that, Battlefield 3 was a game that drove the passionate Battlefield 2 fan-base crazy with disappointment and anger. They were angry at DICE for selling out the main series (like DICE had sold out so many times before then) instead of treating it like the real return to the epic scope of classic PC Battlefield that DICE had marketed the game as being. We Battlefield 2 players loved Bad Company 2, but we loved it knowing that it isn't a main series Battlefield game and that it was a simplified spin-off game targeting the console audience, and we loved it as a stop-gap before the next main series Battlefield game released. Many of us thought that it was an appetizer and warm-up before the main course arrived. But then, Battlefield 3 did not deliver us a genuine sequel to Battlefield 2. And now that I see that you're experiencing a bit of the same realization and disappointment with DICE concerning their games following Battlefield 4, I hope you can look back and see that the problem in the mentality and approach of DICE was unfortunately already there a lot earlier than you might be thinking it was, with Battlefield 4 seemingly being a one-off exception to the historical rule of the DICE-dumbdown. And I want to say I'm glad that someone like yourself with a voice to get things heard and acknowledged on a larger scale has finally said something about it.

  8. Great news. Looking forward to squading up with my fellow AJSA members on these games in the near future. I loved both games back on the 360, both very fun. Great chance for us to relive some memories and create new adventures. Battlefield 3 is at this time only installable via disc. Hopefully this will be changed and people can download it on the Xbox Store in the near future.

  9. Hello my fellow angry soldiers. Seeing that a lot of us still play Battlefield 3, I was surprised that there is no platoon for us in BF3. So I just made one. Here's the link to the platoon's page on EA Battlelog. Please note : I do not intend to organize any events (or "lead" the platoon in general) and I am not intentionally trying to become a higher-level member by doing this. I am just creating the platoon so that everyone can wear the [AJSA] tag inside BF3. If a higher-level member wants to take over the platoon, they're totally welcome to do so. So yeah, see you all on the battlefield! (Please note that my AJSA platoon is on PC only, hopefully we'll get platoons for X360 and PS3 once AJSA commanders take notice.) EDIT : I have only very recently realised that you can wear a clan tag without being in a platoon, I deeply apologize for being an ignorant retard. However, I'll just keep the platoon, whatever.
  10. This is a re post to a more appropriate part of the forum about a BF3 platoon on AJSA as I think there could be a large amount of users that still play BF3 and maybe don't want BF4 until its been patched. I hope the counsel of AJSA can support BF3 as well http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/11078-battlefield-3-and-teamspeak/
  11. So I was wondering if the AJSA is still active on BF3 servers, or did everyone move over to BF4 and left BF3? Because I do not own BF4 on PC, I play it on my PS4 only and I'm sure most of the AJSA are primarily PC gamers.
  12. Hey, I recently got back into Battlefield 3 after taking a hiatus after MAG closed. Is there still an AJSA presence on the game? If so, how do I get in on all of that?
  13. I learn a lesson the best way ever Subscribe ⇒ http://www.youtube.com/user/ShotgunRaider88
  14. I'm a new member so let's get an introduction down. I'm gonna be playing for fun and value, but I want to involve myself in this community as much as possible. I'm not a tryhard hardcore gamer by any stretch of the imagination. My childhood games are things like Sonic the Hedgehog, Quake, Spyro the Dragon, Tomb Raider, Streets of Rage, and many games from that time. Other than Quake and Doom I never grew up on the hardcore games and gaming communities. So please, if I join a game don't hold expert level performance from me, but I'm going to try my absolute best regardless. I play plenty of games. My new Steam account doesn't have as many hours recorded but I play CS:GO, Planetside 2, Insurgency, Team Fortress 2, I'll be starting on DCU Online, and many more. At the same time, much of my time is taken up as I'm a payed artist in character design. I don't let this get in my way though as I clock in still too many hours in video games. I'm extremely friendly, just say hi! I don't judge, I accept most kinds of people. I don't claim to be perfect but I try to be as close as possible when it comes to treating other human beings. Everyone here's cool with me as of right now.
  15. Can i Please have some Advice on these
  16. Can we have a room on teamspeak for BF3 as BF4 still has a lot of issues as some BF fans might not want to buy into BF4 at the mo because of the terrible launch I am one of them. I found this Platoon that is not officially backed by the AJSA but wants to represent the AJSA on the BF3 front. I have joined so I can do some representing with tags. Some feedback and action could be good for the cause. http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/4382-join-the-ajsa-platoon-in-bf3/ Hopeful by me drawing attention to this might bring about some more platoon members eg raise awareness I think Server support is one thing for a game and Teamspeak is another. More games can be support through teamspeak as less bandwidth is used. This can give the council abetter idea as to what games to support on the server front. Just a thought
  17. Hey peep's, how are you all doing? My name is AshikinBliss, Just thought I would introduce myself and stuff. I really look forward to making some friends and gaming hard with the AJSA Rock on guys.
  18. Code Flow is our video game radio talk show on Twitch.tv/codeflow and www.rookeryradio.com But, I also am Trying to play on PC I have Battlefield 3 and GW2, next paycheck I'll get Battlefield 4 Looking for Noob groups to help me out and hang with Also Enjoy our show ( this was pre recorded and also saved to our Youtube we are live on http://www.twitch.tv/codeflow# MONDAYS 6pm-8pm EST) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9vcwpQQoGw
  19. Hey I am looking for people who have a competitive edge but still enjoy the game in Battlefield 3 or 4. I play on the 360 and I am looking for people who will play to win. I thought this forum would be a good place to go and if you are interested send me an invite and join my party (My GT is MyHairyPit). I thought I would use this armies most important aspect, its players, to have a good time and kick some ass. See you on the Battlefield.
  20. Heres a couple of my drawings from my "requst skirms" forum treads. if you want to see more of my art just go to this link right here --> http://cybergothradio.deviantart.com/ and watch me a little~ i wont tell~
  21. I can't afford to spend $60 for Battlefield 4. Anybody wanna work together in a squad and play some Battlefield 3? My EA Battlelog is on my profile. Just so you know, I got the game back in June and I'm still learning how to play.
  22. Hey fellow Army Men! I wanted to post this video of a metal montage of BF3. I don't really see any metal montages on YouTube, so I have to represent metal! Check it out if you have a sec.
  23. Hey my Xbox 360 user name is on my account, so if you feel the need to kick some ass with me in battlefield 3 or 4 sent me an invite and join my party. Just thought I would put the word out there. Reply if you want but if you want to play send me an invite. Thanks.
  24. One of Battlefield's 4 main market stragey (rightly so) is to have beta players talk about some "awesome moment" that they've had to a game. Now most of us who played BF3(or BF4) for a sufficent amount of time have had these moments that just make you jolt in your seat and just feel awesome. Mine was in a BF4 game on DawnBreaker. My friend and I were in the Little Bird. We just got done killing a Attack Heli, so it was spining wildly out of control, fire spouting from the cockpit and the back router, making a awesome speculate. Suddenly, and enemy jet passes inches beneath us, with the amazing sound qualtity of the jets in this game making my friend and I jump in our chairs. At the same moment a friendly F-35 passes just above us, barely missing us. We were later killed by a moblie AA, but moments like these are the moments that at least to me, make Battlefield 4 worth the money. I would like to hear your "moment" in either BF3, or BF4. Excuse my spelling and grammer thoughout this post.
