Now the beta is well under way you are probably looking for some friendly incompetants to play with. Fear not because we have a solution.

ARPS has a platoon that you are welcome to join so that you can join in with fellow RPS readers and forumites. I don't know if the following link will direct you to the right place but just search for ARPS on Battlelog and click apply.

Platoon - http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/platoon/2826550451867322073/listmembers/

If you are not familiar with ARPS, it is the name used by the Arma2 crowd (check out our thread for more info (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?28-ArmA-2-Combined-Operations-We-have-our-own-server)) and we have a few servers running such as RO2 and our Arma servers. We also have a mumble server here:

Address: server.herosquad.org
Port: 64738
Server Password: none!

So join up and pop into steam chat (to suggest manshoots) or mumble to say hi and we look forward to seeing you on the battlefield.

I shall indeed be partaking in ARPS' habitual idiocy in this exciting new manshoot. Now lets hope DICE put up more Caspian Border servers, because screw Operation Metro.

Application sent, hopefully they'll bring back a big map before the end of the beta.

All requests pending should now have been accepted, you should be able to join people in the platoon if they are playing.

Shutting down Caspian Border servers was just plain evil!

Long term reader, first time poster here. Recently purchased a meaty PC to play BF3, so would welcome some like-minded folk to play with. Sent an application to the platoon. Hopefully catch you guys on the beta soon!

Accepted, hope to see you in a battle soon. The importance of voip cannot be underestimated so make sure you can use mumble, even if you don't have a mic.

Cool thanks, I'm awaiting a new headset + sound card so should be on board with the voice chat thing soon.

Not entirely convinced that the accept work...could just be battlelog being slow to update?

Thanks for the invitation! Downloading mumble now. I've gotta attend to other duties tonight, but I should hopefully be on-line tomorrow evening for a good few hours.

How do I get to play with the group?

How do I get to play with the group?
First, apply to join the group. Second, hang around either in the RPS steam group chatroom (steam://friends/joinchat/103582791429554934) or in our community Mumble server (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?533-Unofficial-Community-Mumble-server), where our ad-hoc games are generally organised. If you feel like playing, just say so in the chatroom. You'll find a few willing players.

Bodge
02-10-2011, 06:03 PM
Or find someone in the group that is playing, click on their profile and then go to join game.

Woo! I just applied to the platoon. Hopefully I'll actually have some time to play before the Beta ends. If not, then roll on full game!

New emblem.

Nice, but are those civilian helos? Surely there's an AH silhouette somewhere :).

Bodge
04-10-2011, 11:11 AM
Looks like a lynx or something which is sexy enough for me. What do we think of the writing? Not sure who added it but I dunno if it is the right colour or not.

EDIT: Also - 50 members! Good times.

You have your first case of desertion since I uninstalled everything related to the beta and origin. It's not for me. Although I m still curious how the big maps play out... Anyway see you in Arma2 and/or RO2!

Ilinx
04-10-2011, 01:48 PM
I've applied. I'd be up for a game this evening, if you'll have me on board. Haven't had a chance to try the beta yet, so would appreciate people yelling which direction to shoot in ;)

Edit: And if anyone has any advice on how to stop my BF3 soldier name being the same as my real name (and thus a terrible name for a pretend soldier) that would be most appreciated!

Should be able to in profile options. By default it has the name of your EA master ID I believe.

Cheers, that's what I thought, but haven't been able to prevent it defaulting to that. I'm pursuing it with EA support.

I applied as well, the BC2 RPS server was great when it was populated, hopefully we can bring that kinda fun back.

Burnside
04-10-2011, 07:07 PM
I'm in, as my naff ea id tactical_grace - really keen to see how this plays out when you're on a team that's a bit more organised!

Also, about changing your soldier and the ea master id - I'm after this myself. If you ask EA to swap your master/origin ID to another identity, that should filter through to battlelog eventually. Think that once bf3 hits retail there will be more options.

Bodge

Well we are at 50 and still climbing. Had some awesome rounds this afternoon with Iceraiser, Head, indecorus and TheBrnin8r

Just applied too, as X_Sp0nge. Look forward to some games.

Well, it was arduous but after putting in a request with EA support to change my Master EA ID, I think I've managed to stop it from telling everyone in my real name. Now my inability to fire an automatic weapon at a stationary object shall be forever veiled behind internet anonymity. Yay!

I have a cunning plan regarding this.

Not sure if my application went through or not. Just logged into the Battlelog and saw that I hadn't been added. Went to the ARPS page and still had the option to apply to the group. However, when I clicked on apply it said there were no spaces left.

I've become a fan, but is there anyway to let more people join?

edit: Actually, looks like my application was rejected. It's like team picking for the school yard footie game all over again :(

The platoon management system is a bit simple at this point. I think we may have reached some arbitrary player limit (100 members), since I can't seem to accept anyone else. I'm on a 'Leader', Bodge is the 'Founder', so maybe he can raise the limit. Until then there ain't much doin' I'm afraid. Maybe we'll boot some idlers to make way for more active types such as yourself. You can still play with us fairly easily, head onto the RPS steam group chat and/or mumble.

Bodge
07-10-2011, 09:19 PM
B platoon is up for more peoples. The limit seems to be fixed at 100

nuh uh no way
07-10-2011, 09:35 PM
having trouble connecting to the mumble server. is it up?

Bodge
07-10-2011, 09:38 PM
Yup, it seems to be working fine. Also because the 100 limit is poop - http://steamcommunity.com/groups/RPSBF3

server.herosquad.org
port - 64738

nuh uh no way
07-10-2011, 09:46 PM
oooook i have no idea what i'm doing wrong then because i can't get in.

Bodge
07-10-2011, 09:53 PM
What is happening when you put that into the server info box?

nuh uh no way
07-10-2011, 10:05 PM
"Server connection failed: The remote host closed the connection." i've got the right url and port, and i've forwarded the port.
