Everyone available for a game tonight? I think it ends Monday, so we should have a collective blast. Can we get some server nominations, since we don't have a dedicated RPS ones? Where has everyone been playing?

I'm up for some man-shooting, after all I have been waiting on the Sky man since 8 this morning. As for servers, I just play on whatever however I imagine they'll all be full which is going to be a problem.

The ever diligent Comrade Bodge has already made a Rock Paper Shotgun community platoon. (http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/platoon/2826550451867322073/) Any RPS reader is free to apply, we've got over 50 memebers and climbing. We've been using our community Mumble server (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?533-Unofficial-Community-Mumble-server) for VOIP when playing the beta so far, and we've had a lot of fun. Having one squad of people communicating has proven to be a near-guarantee of a win when we've been playing it so far on Operation Metro, I'm sure if we can stack a team with RPS squads we'll dominate and everyone will get lots of sexy unlocks!

As for server recommendations, no individual server stands out in my mind, I've been using the quickjoin feature mostly. The best solution would seem to be to have everyone in a party and then using quickjoin to find a server with space for us, but we've had issues with party joining in the past. I suggest finding an empty server and having everyone blitz onto it.

PS. Jim, since we've got your attention for a bit before you go off to be interviewed by national newspapers and other such tomfoolery, could we get a sticky on the Mumble server thread? The server has a ton of capacity and most RPS gaming communities already use it, I think its worth making it more visible to newcomers.

I'm definitely up for some of this, tonight and over the weekend.

Count me in for this as well. I'm sure it'll be much more fun to be shot in the head ad infinitum by the awesome strangers of this fine website than it is by any old strangers ;).

Yeah!

I'll be ready in the mumble channel all night.

I really want to play with some RPS people, but can't make it until tomorrow or Sunday evening. :( Don't know how to add people to the Origin thing, but please add me if you know how to: BaronFrontliner

I'm up for this. Sent ARPS my request to join. My origin login is fr0d0ki. Also servers were lagging on 64 player when I last checked. Know if they are fixed yet?

Applied to the platoon the other day and will probably actually get to play tonight and over weekend. Look forward to nose diving a jet into some of you (and in game.)

Sign up for the Battlefield 3 beta first. You should be able to find a link in the store page. It'll be easier to play with you if we add your BF3 soldier instead of your EA Origin account.

I'm new to the forums, but I'm a long time reader of RPS and I've joined Platoon B as ogvor. Looking forward to playing!

Hi! I'm new as well to the forums, but long time reader. Was the 7th the only BF3 night or will there be another session this evening [the 9th]???

Looking forward to joining everyone.

Does anyone know if RPS is going to be planning on running some servers for this, come release day?

It would certainly be much easier to organise something like this if there were a passworded server that Jim (or whoever) could just say "Come and play with us at 8PM tonight." At the moment, I'm not actually sure if any games have even gone ahead this weekend.

Mumble/Steam chat + Battlelog seems the best way to organise games. Battlelog has worked quite well in trying to put me with other platoon members. If you see me in there I'll deffo be up for some bf3 squad teamplay action.

Nothing at all has happened so far except for us RPS community regulars playing together as usual. As you may have noticed many servers suffer from terrible desync/rubberbanding, but the TV2 NO servers seem not to have this problem. One of their servers would be my suggestion for any RPS community gathering, although they fill up very fast.
