    We're very happy to promote the PC gaming experience. This is just the first of what I hope will be many team efforts to promote good gaming.

    I look forward to seeing everyone on the server tomorrow!

    If you don't have Battlefield 3, you can get it for $51 on Amazon.

    32 max slots. So 16vs16.

    If the demand approaches, we can upgrade to full on 64 player mayhem! ROFLCOPTR

    I had trouble getting connected first time. Try closing and opening the origin client once (not restarting computer). I had not closed it since purchasing and was having issues. After restarting client, login to server went perfectly.

    I don't think I'll have it downloaded before the end of the night. :(

    I know we have the vent server from Division G for BF3, and I got into that one, but I can't seem to get into normal IC server. I have details from the minecraft sticky, but it doesn't seem to want to let me in. Anyone PM me something to make me feel dumb and get connected?

    Played with Tushon, Nights, Pigflipper and others. It was fun! Now I have to figure out how to play something other than MEEEDIC.

    Oh, are folks on a different vent server than IC's?

    So Jimmeh and I tried for at least 30 minutes tonight to play together on a public server. Origin is such a frigging mess that we've had no actual luck at playing in the same game at all so far. This is a total nightmare. Origin blows.

    So basically, it's like this: If you don't have any friends, BF3 online rules. If you have friends, go f*k yourself.

    I hate Origin as much as the next guy, but ur doin' it rong. Import your Origin friends to the Battlelog, then create a party. Find a server with open slots or let BF3 do it for you with a quick match.

    Yeah, definitely not that simple. We partied up and it didn't make a difference - no matter which server we connected to, either Tiberius or I did not recieve the confirmation popup that the other sent out when trying to connect. It was a frigging mess.

    We ended up just connecting to whatever server we wanted,and using the join feature from the other person's status page.

    We spent an hour and a half tonight playing BF3, but we only played BF3 for 40 minutes. Battlelog blows.

    What better man to take pictures than the Dean of Computer Graphics, great stuff UPSLynx.

    It was a blast last night, I was mostly romping around getting familiar with the controls, maps, etc. But we all got along and once we were in the game it was awesome. Thanks again to all that showed up.

    I've implemented the following changes to the server

    Rotation is now - Conquest, Rush, then back again, I've also changed the map size to small, as that is setup for 32 players, last night we were on 64 player maps.
    Server will start a game with fewer people in it, allowing you to hop in when the server is slow and practice flying around.

    Worst part for me was I realized my GTX285 doesn't cut the mustard. I was playing at 800x600, low res, in a window. That will have to change.

    That explains why you kept getting the tank stuck so much early on. :-p

    Hahaha, yes, I was getting huge airtime in the tank going over those rubble piles, I was curious if it would kick you off when we went upside down. The answer is no and we can now be a full on multi-dimensional killing machine.

    I'm using a GTX260 and the game ran pretty well for me considering I didn't get around to changing any of the video options.

    It cuts the mustard, sort of, but the current GeForce drivers are fucking awful for BF3. Constant stuttering, hiccuping, etc. It's nasty.

    OK good, so it's a driver thing. I did update to the latest public release before playing last night. Patience it seems I need yes.

    Woo! I had a good time. Wish I could have stuck around longer.

    I was playing on latest release drivers and experience none of those things (on a GTX570 ... so if your comment was directed at 200 series cards, ignore this)

    It's any DX 8/9/10 NVIDIA cards, and select 500 Series cards, primarily 560/580 and SLI configs.

    For what it's worth, Lynx: Church, Pig, Blackhawk and I partied up mid-round and ended up spawning in the same squad for 3 games in a row on a 64 player server. We also had Cri1s89 and Church's gf in the server with us, too (they found us through Origin browser).

    Don't be so quick to write the system off, it's the first day - who knows, you might have been trying to do it at a wonky time. All kinds of things were going on last night that prevented something from happening properly.
