Post BF4 Lobby Up Protocol
Gents you may have noticed I haven't been on BF4 much. Main reason is the lack of pre-game lobby which leaves people all over the bloody place i.e. wrong server/team/squad.

It causes me personal great frustration as I would like to be getting as many games in BF4. For me I have no interest in these games unless I can play along with my clansmen and follow objectives .... also why I don't particularly enjoy TDM on BF4 ..... could do that on COD.

ANYWAY .....

We are discussing a protocol to ensure that we get as many of us together on the same server/team/squad.

I will post back with this but you are more than welcome to throw in your ideas.

Allocated lobby champions
Their remit will be to be the focal points for gathering troops together and following the protocol.



1 - Start Group Chat - Invite all online players
2 - Get general consensus of game mode
3 - Take head count and ensure you have "Squad with Joining Friend*" selected
4 - Find server with appropriate % full to accommodate 2 & 3
5 - Join server and advise party to start joining you
6 - Create "new" squad and advise party
7 - If squad is full ask for volunteer to create another squad**
8 - If after 2 rounds some of the party is stuck on other team consider new server.

*this should be enabled and can be found in the main game options page GAMEPLAY tab - Squad with Joining Friend
**To create a squad you should leave whatever squad you are in and the option will appear. You can also make it private so only clan can join you.

this isnt a request..its 55's protocol...if there are 55's on...get em in your lobbys...if there are too many ensure 2 senior 55's split up and make 2 separate groups.

your commander has expressed how he wishes it to be done..its not perfect but your dealing with a fucked up game so make the best of it.

Its a sysrem that 100% works. Just be savvy to what your joining.

If theres 5 of you, join a lobby with 10 plus slots. Youll get in together in your own squad most of the time. If you dont, its because so many idiots in the server have got there own little 2/5 man squads.

Been having decent luck getting in and playing with several different guys lately. Did have one anomaly the other night though where I was playing with about 6-7 clansmen and the game refused to let me stay on the same team. Kept giving me a "it has been too soon since your last team change" message, which was funny because I hadn't changed any teams in the previous games. Didn't help to restart PS4 either. That was a one time thing though and was VERY frustrating.

Many quirks on getting together.

NOTE that you CAN MAKE A SQUAD

I think the make a squad thing might be a bum steer. Basically if you are in a squad you don't want to be in just leave it and then you will get the option to create a new one and also make it PRIVATE i.e. just so your friends can get in.

Played as many games against you as with you, I managed to team swap in game once (R3 on squads menu). Imagine they are still bug fixing rather than patching in a good lobby system.

Dick move EA: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/fo ... 26920/158/

So that thread that had thousands of responses from people requesting a squad feature in BF4 has now been locked down by the forum mod.

Its looking likely they will not implement it .... they have ignored that thread completely and even though it is the most active thread than the rest of the shit put together they still don't at least offer an official reply. Even just say yes, no we will think ... fckn disgrace .... really is shocking how gaming is being run by bankers !

Hmmm
